Tonal sneaker designs have advanced so far in both number and sophistication over the past few years, and while much of these gains have come on super-simple lifestyle sneaker, select performance models like the Nike LeBron 9 Low manage to also be showcases for this relatively new color expression. The LeBron 9 Low shows us that tonal can mean red-on-red as in the case of the Team and Challenge Red edition coming up this summer, or add a degree of complexity like this Vivid Orange and Cherry design whose two main colors’ shared reliance upon reflecting red light is echoed by the split coloring of their shared Max Air cushion. This has them ending up closer to a dish of rainbow sherbet than the ‘Bubblicious’ nickname some have bestowed upon this vibrant design, but you could even stretch to call these a ‘Cinco de Mayo’, because May 5th indeed marks the US release date.

Remember LeBron had his own "lightning rasberry lemonade" bubblegum by Bubblicious....That's where the name came from.
If I see any of you kneegas wit bubblicious on ya feet, imma hit you wit my car and then reverse to make sure I got the sneakers
bubbilicious doesn't seem like a fitting name since i don't see much orange gum...imo. new name proposal...the sorbets..fits better imo.
Man the bubblicious?!? Really? Clearly these are inspired by the Floridians throwback uniforms... SMH bubblicious...
I'm a guy and can't wait to rock these in my tight pedal pushers, and extra medium white t-shirt. LOL! these suck
dam was up with SN are they dump or what? this are inspired by the throwback jersey's of the floridians...........
man, a few years ago and nobody would even consider rocking these. now the fruit booters luh dat shit. fish dix.
nike and the shoe game heads are a total turn off for the whole game itself!!! nike releases a plethora of colorways for a 1/2 decent shoe give me 12 shoes a year that are straight ill rather then 180 of weak ones!
