As a gesture of ‘Happy Birthday’ to LeBron James, Nike Basketball hooked up with Miami-based artist Freegums for a slick rendition of the Nike LeBron 9. Donning a basic White/Black/Red colorway and covered with an artwork derived from Freegums’ interpretation of LeBron James and the game of basketball, the Freegums x Nike LeBron 9 became one of the hits of 2011 and continues to be a popular choice today. Sneaker custom guru Gourmet Kickz, who brought you some of the more texture-centric customs like the ‘Copperhead Snakeskin’ Foamposite One, recently completed an ‘Inside-Out’ version of the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Freegums’, transcribing the detailed artwork onto the large weave panel on the upper. Adding to the high-energy appeal is the colorful speckling on the midsole. Do you like these better than the original? Check out the gallery below and let us know what you think.

You guys are dumb, you don't even understand how hard this guy probably had to work for theses to look the way they look. And the speckles added were a great touch # water tower swagg gang # findlay prep

They would look even better if they would have carried the graphic onto the flywire as well. Dope shoe though

I came into the sneaker game as a willing athletic participant, way back in the day!i wore Adidas Top Tens; Nike Franchises; New Balance 1500's; John Wooden Bata's. I am A SERIOUS BALLER! Basketball is a RELIGION! Today, all I see is people spending $'s for ANYTHING! I broke my ankle in '74 in a pair of Nike Bruin Lowtops playing basketball, and I swore that I would NEVER buy another NIKE product in my life! Maybe it wasn't the shoes! 36 years later, I am blogging about sneakers on this site! I HAVE WORE NIKE RELIGIOUSLY FOR FOR THAN 30 YEARS! Their shoes used to be "Engineered to the Exact Specification of Professional Athletes! EVERY PAIR OF JORDANS THAT I OWN; LEBRONS AND KOBE'S HAVE BEEN PLAYED IN! IT'S THE ONLY WAY TO CHALLENGE THE PURCHASING DECISION! MY CHALLENGE TO THE SNEAKER HEADS; PLAY; SKATE; RUN; STEAL CARS or do SOMETHING to VALIDATE the cost of the purchase! RETRO'S should cost the same as the original release price; it doesn't cost more to sell something that has allready been sold! This is how I feel! Peace!

the amount of detail is awesome, the speckles actually play well with the print. I agree, the original Freegums were a bit timid, with the print on just the liner, these go much harder.

Not taking away from the original "Freegums", but if this one had released, I would have actually bought them.

This is what they should have looked like. I'm still not sure on the red though. Way nicer than the current freegums.
