With such a drastic change going from LeBron 9 to LeBron 9 Low, it leaves us wondering if there’s perhaps a scrapped sample of a LeBron 9 Low lying around Beaverton somewhere (ahem, Petrie?). Looking back at the Air Max LeBron VII and LeBron 8 V/2, the accompanying low-top versions are near carbon-copies of its taller counterparts, so it’s almost like the LeBron 9 Low was designed independently of the Mid. We’ve already showed you detailed images of a few upcoming colorways, but this is our first clear look at the Obsidian/Cyber version, which features the former color on the Hyperfuse shell upper and the latter color on the swoosh, tongue interior, and mid-foot stability wing. If you’re a fan of full-length Air Max, the LeBron 9 Low should be an easy pick-up, so peep the new colorways below and let us know what you think. via hoopchina

funny how these young dudes say these r o.k. but go crazy over some foams that been played out since da 90"s smfh!!!!!!!!
They missed this!!! Switch color of the air bubble midsole to match the yellow swoosh then it's dope!!!
Guess it's a good thing that I don't really like the lows, my wallet was startin to hurt over here...
I may buy a few low top releases for the Lebron laces then lace them up with regular laces matching the color and return them. Nike take note, sell some DAMN Lebron Laces separately!!!
I would like to try these on and play with the laces a little bit to see how I like them, but have liked the idea since the first pics of the "Easters"
Agreed. But these are still pretty nice. IMO, they're clearly the best Lebron 9 Low, and really the only one I'd consider buying.
