It’s been a while since we’ve seen Zoom Kobe VI specialist Emmanuelabor come onto the scene with a new custom sneaker design, but his latest seems to have been worth every second of the wait. This Nike LeBron 9 ‘Black Cement’ custom takes a page from the LeBron 9 iD ‘Foamposite’, borrowing one of the most recognizable basketball sneaker design cues for its side panels. These nail the black, Cement Grey and Varsity Red color scheme made famous on Michael Jordan’s feet, but don’t they just make you want IIIs with ‘NIKE AIR’ on the heel even more?! Click through to get a better view of this unique take on a classic colorway swap, and let us know how they compare to all the other AJ3-based tributes.
Like the idea.... think the elephant print should be somewhere else...kinda too large of a area for the print
