The Nike LeBron 9 has been released in a diverse library of colorways since it first dropped in October, but if you had to pick the most distinguished of the bunch, there’s no doubt that the Freegums x Nike LeBron 9 is deserving of that title. Designed by Miami-native artist Alvaro ‘Freegums’ Ilizarbe, the Freegums x Nike LeBron 9 captures the sizzling local flavor as it features Freegums’ trademark stylings all around the shoe. It turns out, Nike’s desire for the collaboration and Freegums’ personal methods intermingled a lot more than expected, which is why the final result was such a huge hit – even LeBron himself has been spotted with them during a game that fell on a special night. Sneaker News teamed up with Foot Locker Unlocked for this nice feature, so if you want to get an in-depth look and feel for the Freegums x Nike LeBron 9, become a Foot Locker VIP member and check out the exclusive story at Foot Locker Unlocked, where you will find this and other sneaker stories and info exclusive to members!
