Simply put, this dude is on a roll. Mache Customs has been landing haymakers left and right with his amazing works of art – the LeBron 9 ‘BeeGums’ and Zoom Rookie LWP ‘Galaxy’ just to name a few. Bringing another of Miami flavor from the previous LeBron chapter is the ‘Flamingo’ customization of the LeBron 9; this wild colorway depicts the festive nature of the South Beach party scene, using blots of hot pink and aqua blue with black confetti-like detailing on the upper. These are actually called the ‘Flamingo’ colorway, as confirmed by Jason Petrie and folks over at Nike, but the ‘Miami Nights’ moniker, one that was to be used for a later LeBron 9 release, somehow leaked out and stuck like glue. Regardless of the name, these LeBron 9 Customs are one of the best we’ve seen come out of the Mache Customs camp, so peep the detailed shots below and let us know what you think!
These are wetter than any cw released in this model. Dopeness! I love to rock these wit a spurs snapback!
WOW!!! CAN IT GET ANY F'N WORSE!!!!!!! WHAT IS THE PROBLEM... IS IT THAT HARD TO DO COLORWAYS THAT HAVEN'T BEEN DONE ALREADY? OKAY...OKAY...OKAY...LET'S MAKE IT EASIER... USE THE SAME NIKE PATTERNS BUT CHANGE THE COLORS, IS THAT A LITTLE MORE FEASIBLE???????????????????????
Damn,,now thats a custom that deserves to be turned into a permenant colorway and released!!! First custom i think is worth the money!! Nice!!
i now understand why nike didnt drop these like they look nice for a custom but idk the design just doesnt fit that silhouette
Shoes are dead on my only issue is the flow of color into the whole toe..should've kept flywire black and the flamingo on the accent of the toe..but no bs here these are nice..
Mache took that Lebron exactly where in needed to be. It looks like what they should have done but didn't have the guts to do because they put out those lows.
