We’re almost at the finish line for the 11 Days of Nike LeBron. Today’s sneaker is one that played a pivotal role in the LeBron James story. The Nike LeBron 9 will forever hold a special spot in footwear history as the sneaker that carried King James to the promised land for the first time. He had flirted with greatness plenty of times before, but it was during his second season with the Miami heat, this shoe on feet, that he would finally achieve that ultimate goal in the NBA. This new plateaux of play was represented in the futuristic build of the Nike LeBron 9. The leather materials that had so long been a mainstay of basketball sneakers were tossed out in favor of Hyperfuse paneling and Flywire supports-choices that sort of signified a new era in basketball sneaker design.

As LeBron spent so much time in the post season that year, it was only fitting that his on-feet offerings morphed at that juncture to provide a silhouette better fitted for the post-season push. Thus was born the Nike Elite Basketball line, a trio of models that included the reinforced Nike LeBron 9 Elite. That same shoe would be doubled up on for LeBron James’ first ever Championship Pack set of sneakers. That wasn’t all the LeBron 9 was packing in terms of memorable moments though. Another highlight included the blazing “Big Bang” All Star pair that hit in a peak year for NBA All-Star shoes fueled by Nike’s “Galaxy” theme. Recall some high points of the Nike LeBron 9 with us below and tell us in the comments if you feel like the LeBron 9 will go down as one of the best designs as far as LeBron James shoes are concerned.
