The Nike LeBron line has done a pretty good job steering clear of too many Air Jordan tributes, determined to carve out its own lane of classics rather than rest on the laurels of His Airness. That hasn’t stopped custom creators from dreaming up crossovers though, the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Bordeaux’ pictured above being the latest of those. Just like its inspiration, the pair keep things pretty plain on the upper, letting the tongue do the talking (no pun intended) with that beloved jagged pattern of colors.

not bad, but its simple to do! if he painted the bottoms with those colors id give him even bigger props! but just painting the tongue isnt that much of a big deal.
@dopeman978 These were all black I didn't just paint the tongue, and you can't paint the soles of sneakers without it chipping. The back tab and lace tabs were also painted.
