It appears that the folks on campus out in Beaverton were so eager about the retro Griffey revival that they were keen on spreading the love around to non-baseball sigs as well. In what comes off as a little bit of a ‘peanut butter in my chocolate moment’, this new Nike LeBron 9 is poised to arrive with some very tangible influences from the Ken Griffey Jr. line. Beyond the bluish hues on the upper, LeBron’s own logo even gets replaced with the ‘Swingman’ on the back. Are these good in your book or are there other LeBron releases you’ll be putting your money towards instead? Let us know in the comments and stick with Sneaker News for more looks at this early March release. via HKK
Nike LeBron 9
Green Abyss/White-Obsidian-Light Blue Heather
the logo looks like a gorilla swinging through the trees. So I geuss since he can't steal Michael Jordan's image and logo hes gonna go use Griffey's. That's Lebron for you.
Will def be copping these. Not only a great colorway for the LBJ9, but Grif is my fav baseball player of all time. Love this concept.
For sure a clean with the fact of KGJ incorporated in the shoe, but I rather cop the galaxy's and summit lakes and if I got extra cash I'd think about these.
Actually the logo on the Lebron 9 is the dunkman logo with the Griffey swinging motion. Find another way to hate please
Actually, I'd be suprised if a little hipster like you knew who Griffey Jr. was without lebron stealing his logo. Find another way to praise the Queen please.
