The Freegums collabo design stands among the LeBron 9′s most visually impressive colorways, one so detailed they’re a steep challenge for today’s popular color-swap custom artists.  Gourmet Kickz tried his hand back in February and came up with something that might even be more eye-catching than the original, and now a guy who’s building a reputation for some of the custom market’s most ingenious designs has offered his perspective.  The ROM Nike LeBron 9 ’Freegums All-Over’ is the opposite of GK’s in terms of its color/pattern blocking, and this pair’s large black and white sweeps give it an overall cleaner look while still thoroughly examining its inspiration.  Are these the best LeBron 9 customs we’ve seen on Sneaker News?  Click through to see a bunch more images and let us know what you think with a comment.

Freegums Talks Nike LeBron 9 Collaboration

freegums talks nike lebron 9 collaboration Freegums Talks Nike LeBron 9 Collaboration

By this time last year we already had a definitive Miami flavored colorway of the Nike LeBron 8, but has any one colorway cemented that same status for the Nike LeBron 9 as of yet? A case can be made for a handful of them, and in that conversation the Freegums x Nike LeBron 9 collaboration must be included. While it doesn’t go for a flashy palette that many associate with the Miami aura, artist Freegums leaned a little more on the natural surroundings of Florida as inspiration for his fluid graphic prints that show up on the sneakers. Hit the jump to take a look at the video breakdown of Freegums discussing the background on this killer collab.

Nike LeBron 9 ‘Freegums’ – New Images

December 29th, 2011 by | 19 comments

First LeBron James chose his designs for the initial facade at UNKNWN, then King James picked Freegums’ Nike LeBron 9 collabo to compliment the Miami Heat’s white jerseys during their home opener Tuesday at American Airlines Arena. It’s clear LBJ approves of MIA-native Alvaro Ilizarbe’s handstyles, and now the LeBron 9 he so deftly lined is being released as this year’s birthday tribute to one of the great talents the game of basketball has ever seen. This detail-rich design stands out precicely because its high contrast good looks can hold their own even away from the hardwood, and they’re sure to draw lines upon the New Years Eve release at select Nike Basketall stockists like Extra Butter. Have a closer look at some new images after the jump including the intricate tissue paper in which they’ll be wrapped, and if you can’t wait until the day after ‘Bron’s b-day to grab yours, secure a pair right now on eBay.

Freegums x Nike LeBron 9 – Arriving at Retailers

Is Freegums’ design the most important Nike LeBron 9 release so far? You could argue that the ‘Cannon’, ‘China’ or ‘Miami Nights’ has drawn more attention (though you’d probably just be saying which one you like best), but did any of those designs make it into LeBron James’ new UNKNWN retail spot (other than on the iPad-enhanced shelves)? It’s Freegums’ handiwork at the front door of the new Aventura Mall location, the same kind of intricate detail that marks the lining of his LeBron 9 collaboration. A select few were able to get pairs early at the private release party during Art Basel, but the general public will have to wait until New Year’s Eve for the chance to grab a pair at select Nike Basketball retailers like Millennium Shoes. But somewhere in the middle of these two polar opposites is a group nearly as elite as the Shoe Gallery party attendees: the select few who’ll be ahead of the curve by buying a pair that’s already available on eBay.

Freegums x Nike LeBron 9 – Private Event Recap

Imagine you had your hands on a raffle ticket entitling you to a super-deluxe special edition box carved to match the intricate sockliners on the Freegums x Nike LeBron 9, but had to take a BRB and missed your number being called, only to come back and see someone else leave with ‘your’ prize.  That happened to some poor, unfortunate sneakerhead over the weekend in Miami, where Alvaro ‘Freegums’ Ilizarbe was on hand at Shoe Gallery to celebrate the drop of his first Nike collaboration.  Soul-crushing timing fail notwithstanding, this was an event filled with smiling faces who’d come to see the wall of Freegums LeBron 9s and the similarly-styled wall upon which they were displayed, and you can see a video recap of the party by clicking on the jump below.  via Stickie213

It’s not often an outside source is tapped to help detail and Nike LeBron 9 shoe – one that will actually release. Here’s yet another look at the upcoming Nike LeBron 9, featuring a interior lining designed by Miami-based artist ‘Freegums’; the White/Black primary colorway is actually akin to Freegums’ signature work, which relies heavily on the yin/yang theme and intricate lines and details seen on the exceptionally designed inner wallpaper. Hints of red are seen on the Nike LeBron logo on the laces as well as on the signature on the tongue and heel ‘spoiler’. More shots of these bad boys await you below, so take a look and let us know what you think. via airrandyhk.
