Kobe Bryant gets a Charlotte Hornets-inspired colorway each year in honor of his 1996 Draft Day trade, and even though that team had moved to New Orleans by the time LeBron James entered the NBA, the King is still the only one of these two Nike Basketball signature superstars to have ever suited up for the Hornets. We’re talking about the Summit Lake Hornets, of course, LeBron’s childhood AAU squad and a three-word phrase that’s come to denote serious heat like the Nike LeBron 9 pictured above. The ‘Summit Lake’ LeBron 9 features a powerful Pure Purple upper that’s a fitting sendoff for one of the most energetic and impressive signatures on record; will you be hitting up retailers like Millennium Shoes to get yours when they drop on March 31st?
Nike LeBron 9 ‘Summit Lake Hornets’
Pure Purple/Turquoise Blue-White
There was a Mangos and Dunkman restock on NDC about and hour ago. Don't know if they are still there but it's worth checking out.
Will merc anything in my way 2 these. Got da swings missed da Mangos @ da . Gotta have these. Bron 9 collection will b complete. Almost complete WTT joints impossibility.
these are beautiful. but one of the above commenters is right.... I hope these come with an extra pair of laces, either white or blue, otherwise I'll swap the laces myself to get less purple and more contrast
PASS..!!! ON THE "BARNEY" C.W THIS IS A GIRL C.W RITE?..SAD.! 7'S & 8'S STILL THE BEST MODEL AND C.W !!!! NOTHIN' PERSONAL HYPEBUSTAS!
ill get mine from footlocker,footaction or champs...i could get them early from dk shoes but they want an extra 120.00 just to get them a few days early so i'll be ready 3/31
I just can't get with this colorway for whatever reason. I've bought 6 various color ways of the the Lebron 9 but the color blocking on this doesn't look good to me. Personal opinion, more white and contrasting laces would've made this one hell of a shoe. As it stands now its a purple shoe...
I CAN'T WAIT TO GET THESE!! Since I wear GS sizes, I only got the Galaxy ones and I'm going to get these
I respect whoever likes it, by all means buy what you like. I just can't get with a damn near all purple shoe. And its not even a cool Colorado Rockies purple, its like a pastel purple of an easter egg. Just not my style, the missing alternative laces axed them for me.
