The Nike LeBron series’ lowtop releases have been a summertime staple for nearly a decade, and you’d be hard pressed to find a colorway that better represents the warm part of 2012 than the one pictured above. This Nike LeBron 9 Low comes with red and navy accents on its white base to signify the LeBron’s commitment to USA Basketball. LeBron didn’t quit after the 2004 Athens debacle, he doesn’t want to get paid like Miami Heat teammate Dwyane Wade and he even went so far as to say that it’s the pride of representing the Stars and Stripes that motivates him to give up a summer vacation. It remains to be seen if ‘Bron will show up in London with a USAB LeBron 9 Elite, but we have seen the Zoom Soldier VI (as well as a significantly different sample of this silo) in these same colors; which 2012 LeBron sig better handles this patriotic style? Let us know on the other side after you check out some more images, and stick with Sneaker News for release info. Photos: UC
Nike LeBron 9 Low
im so glad i passed on the white/red 11 lows now, i probably wouldnt have copped these otherwise. These are now top of my 'must-cop' list!
I've been a HUGE lebron 9 fan all along, but this is particular colorway of the low is complete waste of a shoe. These should hit the $49.99 range on the sale racks.
You can never tell if you like these lows 9 until y ou see them on feet. Same thing happened with the easter's. But these are definitely a step back from the colors we usually see
