Sneakerheads like to get creative with nicknames for high-energy and thoughtful colorways. Last year’s ‘Sprite’ didn’t exactly house an official connection with the beverage brand, but LeBron’s previous endorsement of the product as well as earlier ‘PE’ release of his Nike LeBrons made that nickname rather seamless. The Vivid Orange/Cherry that has been making its rounds had been un-officially dubbed ‘Bubblicious’ (one of LeBrons other product endorsements), but this May 5th release is actually a Low-top version of the Floridians PE that LeBron wore some time ago. We’ve got another look at these throwback tributes below, so take a look and we’ll keep you updated on more LeBron 9 news. Photos: dsun1226 on ISS/footsell
Nike LeBron 9 Low
I like the nickname "Bubblicious" more than "Floridians". It is more creative, and it is one of his endorsements. I don't get why to some the name makes the shoe, because there are plenty of great sneakers that had no nickname when they came out.
I remember when these were posted as bubblicous, some of u guys were talkin shit bout these, now they opinions changed in jus 2 dayz... dam shame
OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG i have to get dese i have 90 bucks so far i need money fast fuck it sucks being 16 witout a job
So now every shoe got to have pink on it? Leave these gay shits fa da females and fags. No offense to the fags just to the "men" that think these are hot!
Floridians or you meant "TENNESSEE LADY VOLUNTEERS"?!!!!! You still have time to do the necessary correction before this name calling will be another epic failure. SMH.
Jason Petrie himself killed the nickname bubbilicious and said these pay tribute to the ABA Floridians. So this nickname was given by the creator of the 9. He said it on his twitter.
than u have never been on this website lmfaoo thats all ppl do and its so unnecessary because not a single person cares if whoever is first is first haha
