Say ‘good bye’ to the last and final $170 Nike LeBron shoe. With the Elite hitting $250 and rumors of next year’s LeBron X going up to $180, the Summit Lake Hornets colorway of the Nike LeBron 9 might be the last you’ll see in the $170-range (that is, unless the Low-tops increase in price). Tomorrow’s release of the Summit Lake Hornets also marks the last mid-cut LeBron 9 shoe before we roll out the red carpet for the Low and the Elite, and this is where ‘saving the best for last’ bodes especially true. An energetic combination of Purple and Turquoise that may rival some of the best purple/turquoise sneakers in history (save the Air Jordan VIII ‘Aqua’), the LeBron 9 ‘Summit Lake Hornets’ is a definite must-have for any LeBron nut or anyone jumping on the bandwagon later than normal. You can catch them at Nike LeBron retailers tomorrow, or cop a pair now from bxwb84 on eBay.
Nike LeBron 9 ‘Summit Lake Hornets’
Pure Purple/Turquoise Blue-White
easy ass pick up woked up at 9am got the my spot like at 11am......this are way better in person........
These shits WACK!!!!! All of you here are HYPEBEAST!!! If you a grown man caught wearin these shoes casually then you must be really feminine. These shoes suited for women, little girls and boys. LMFAO at you fools..."closest thing to south beaches"...LOL south beaches were WACK too....way over hyped and over rated shoes with that gay "LOUD" cw
How much for GS sizes? Def not a fan of LeBron (or his hairline) but the design on the 9s is not to be ignored. They did a great job on these. Want to try my hand at these since the big bangs eluded me with the quickness.
Was on da fence 4 a min cuz already have 5 LBJ 9's. But a def cop. Missed on da Bangs. Nice summer kicks.
IN PERSON THESE ARE CRAZY!!!!! LOVE EM!!!! COPP BEFORE THE HYPE BEAST DO IT !!!!! DEF THE CLOSEST THING TO THE SOUTH BEACHES!!!
jus copped mine dis mornin.... grab a pair of aqua laces & tshirt to go wit'em... when da sun hits dat purple, they shine up real nice
Sounds like sum1 was waitin in line fa these & they sold out b4 he could cop his lol... u must think da grape 5s, aqua 8s & eggplant foams are feminie to then huh. I mean those shoes are purple too... why cant people b individuals & like wat they like... ur dirtball ass probably got da pink & blk girl brons right now dont ya lol
grape 5 and aqua 8 are legitimate Jordan's that have little amount of purple but not OD. This years SLH is just way over the top. I wouldn't wear them even if they were free. Already seen a bunch of little girls and boys rocking them. Grown ass "men" rocking them thinking they got swag with ALL purple hypebeast shoes.
