Given all the beastly tie-ins on the Kobe side of things, how did LeBron get stuck with a hornet as his spirit animal? OK that’s not exactly how it happened, as the ‘Summit Lake Hornets’ motif is actually a tribute to the youth league team where LeBron got his start. And while the colorway homage lands on a squad the vast majority of us have never seen play, the pair pulls through with the teal/purple combo and the nice bit of background story. Follow us after the jump for some up close shots and stick with Sneaker News for word on a release date for the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Summit Lake Hornets’ as soon as it becomes available. via HC
Even tho Id prably never wear these I would not feel right passing on these..The Lebron 9 has turned out to be a great shoe for lebron. I have not seen a bad colorway on these yet besides the kentuckys..
i like these and the mangos. maybe even the griffeys and im done. well, that is until they drop another dope cw.
I actually have a pair that I've never worn that I'd like to sell. Does anyone wear a 9.5 that's interested?
I hope more people pass on these so I can cop them easy. It's enough band wagon shoes releasing this year. At lease let one or two of my cops be quick and fast! -Water Tower YD
Jada, you know it, too bad Grandmama didn't have these. But I'll wear these easily with my OG Teal Charlotte Hornets Starter from 1992(?)
