Nike LeBron 9 iD ‘Foamposite’
Nike iD teased us last week with a tantalizing clue regarding an upcoming limited-edition customizable option for the Nike LeBron 9 iD, which was later revealed to be a Foamposite-like material on the upper weave panel. How sick is it? LeBron 9 designer Jason Petrie couldn’t stop toying around with the new option over the weekend, showing us some of his inspired iD creations. Here we have a look at actual samples of the upcoming LeBron 9 iD in the new embossed material, and it’s clear that the new three-dimensional add-on gives the LeBron 9 a new level of style that gives the sneaker some new life; these ‘Dunkman’, ‘Cavs HWC’, and ‘Penny’ samples should be enough to lure you in so don’t miss out when this new option goes live on Nike iD tomorrow!
so gay, you have to have a foam side wall, but the speckle mid sole is dirty sick!!!! i want a pair just for that
why add foam? doesn't it make the shoe heavier? why have flyrwire to make it lighter but add foam to make it heavier...the definition of counterproductivness
I'm not going to hype up this option but SN did no justice posting these pics instead of others I've seen. And those others are FIRE! To me, this is a no-brainer. LeBrons beasting on Jordans all day.
I love the idea and ID samples for the most part usually suck. You have to come up with colors you like, cats have no creativity in the shoe game.
Got to see these in person yesterday, and it's just a foamposite-esque material. It's not really foam. Not really a good idea, nonetheless.
Different, but I dont see why foamposite material on this shoe would be necessary. I mean whats the benefit
i like the whole idea behind it but they should have taken more time to figure out a way to make it flow with the shoe
I've never heard of anything being 'limited' on NikeiD. So does that mean that they will only take a certain number of orders and then close it out? Also, Nike needs to stop raising their prices on EVERYTHING. Stuff is the exact same but $10-$20 more expensive.
Wonder what the price on these are going to be. Foam material+Lebron sig line, I'm guessing $265. The Foam just seems so out of place but then again I am not a big fan of the Lebron 9's. I wonder tho why this is a Cavs colorway but the Jordan IV is a Knicks colorway? They are the exact same colors and I tend to believe the Jordan IV is a Cavs colorway as well.
Did you not see how fast this months air force (elephant print option) sold out...when they say limited, IT'S LIMITED!!!
Looks completely forced to me, I honestly would have been happy with icy soles/speckle option and some new colors and that's it
Its breaks up the flow of the shoe, at least in material, ad I'd argue that the carbon fibre originals do something of the same. Against the tens of must cops and even other PE's, the 9's couldnt even hold a flame, but thats just me, wake me up for the 10's also If ya'll are so in to the foam, grab the galaxy ones or the red metallics, dont go splashing around in this weak sauce.
