Each year’s LeBron lowtop is delievered during the postseason and into the NBA’s off months as a summer shoe, much in the style of the Air Jordan that began this practice in the mid/late ’90s. Within that context, the exuberant and utterly un-Heat-like colorways we’ve seen from the Nike LeBron 9 Low to this point are pretty much what we would have expected from a design whose immediate predecessor’s biggest hit was nicknamed ‘Flamingo’. This new colorway, then, is something of a departure, even though it’s the color combination most familiar to the Nike LeBron lineup and the first general release from this year’s flagship. Click through to see how that black, white and Sport Red trio looks with a dash of Cool Grey and a full-length Max Air cushion and stick with Sneaker News for all the LeBron 9 Low release dates. via Dunk

I can't believe they're actually releasing this colorway AGAIN on the Lebron 9.....the first one didn't sell....I doubt this one will either....MORE DOPE COLORWAYS PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I like the low lbj 9 but the easter cw is more intriguing. A post season lowtop shoe should have non-traditional cw's
Too plain for me. A spin-off of Nike Air Max BB 360 which has better CW releases than these LBJs. Unless you are an LBJ loyalist, this is just a plain/generic low cut sneaker to me. I'll buy the BB 360s instead.
I can't really get in to these. Something is off about them. Maybe they look cheap or generic. I guess maybe I just don't like the material on the upper.
Youy hit it. That's exactly what they look like. But I bet these will hit a few crazy/limited color ways and we'll still want them.
