Even if it wasn’t arguably the reigning NBA Finals MVP’s best Nike Basketball signature to date, even if the Elite designs hadn’t reset the bar when it comes to on-court performance — the sheer number of Nike LeBron 9 color-swap customs are a clear indication of just how popular this shoe really is. But even with all these experimental colorups and the general trend toward neutral and otherwise more ‘wearable’ designs, we hadn’t yet seen this shoe take on the look of the most desired Air Jordan collaboration to date. That changes with our first look at the ‘UNDFTD’ LeBron 9, as CH1CO from FRESH&Fly hits us with the military-inspired Undefeated look set off by orange accents including the stitching on an Elephant print Swoosh. Clck through to see these in greater detail, let us know what you think about switching the woven side panels for a 1000 denier military grade Cordura nylon and let us know if you’ll order a pair of the limited edition run that’s set to begin production in mid-July. via N-SB

LOL THOSE ARE TERRIBLE ... SUPER FAIL ... NOT EVEN THE RIGHT SHADE OF GREEN >< THESE CLOWNS NEED TO STOP WITH ALL THESE WACK CUSTOMS >< CUSTOMS ARE NO DIFFERENT THAN FAKES <> ONLY "CUSTOM" ILL CO-SIGN AND SAY IS GOOD MONEY ARE NIKE ID'S .. PERIOD!!
I think all lebrons customs with the side panel patches are just not that great its a key element if I seen them on the street I wouldn't think dope custom I would go more toward fakes
THIS IS F***ING HORRIBLE, IM SORRY BUT I SEE NOTHING GOOD ABOUT THIS SHOE! LOOKS LIKE THEY JUST THREW SUM SHI* TOGETHER.
I love the UNDFTD IV colorway, but what makes them so nice is the quality of that fatigue green suede on them. These are too shiny, and the tint of green is a bit too dark. and there is no white, need some white incorporated somewhere, most likely in the outsole, maybe the air bags. maybe you could have gone the extra mile and incorporated a removable velcro tag on the tongue. overall, the shoe in its entirety is just too dark.
i dont like em really and they need that beige color i think its cream or sail or something but you need it to break up the colors
