Nike LeBron 9 ‘Cannon’ – Release Date Change

Never (in this decade) has a sneaker caught the attention of non-sneaker media outlets like the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Cannon’ did. The military-inspired colorway of the ‘Cannon’ was deemed newsworthy by sports blogs, fashion blogs, gossip blogs, and even the biggest names in those respective categories, like ESPN and CNN. LeBron James debuted the ‘Cannon’ LeBron 9 during that star-studded South Florida All-Star Classic that was held in late September, and since then we’ve all been patiently awaiting the wide release (these dropped first in limited numbers at select retailers in Miami). The release date for cannon was originally set at November 4th, but Nike has just confirmed a minor postponement of this special edition colorway to December 3rd. November is already a jam-packed month with big-name kicks, so perhaps this delay is a blessing in disguise. Now that you have the new date circled on your calendars, are these worth the wait? If your patience is thinning, grab a pair right now on 2xwashoes on eBay.

No NBA? No problem. The Miami Heat ‘Big Three’ played unofficial host of the South Florida All-Star Classic Game, which featured two star-studded rosters in one of the most anticipated exhibition games in recent memory. LeBron James laced up in the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Cannon’ – a sneaker that released today at select retailers in Miami; the Cannon, which represents the Heat pre-season training session that took place at a military base, serves as a ‘warm up’ (or pre-heat, if you will) to the Nike LeBron 9 debut in the U.S., and you can certainly consider the South Florida Classic as a warm-up to the upcoming NBA season (if it happens). While this particular event had no bearing on any W/L columns, the participants, which included the Miami Big Three, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Rajon Rondo, Russell Westbrook, and more, played hard at both ends of the court, leading up to a thrilling one-point victory for Team Wade. Check out LeBron James and the Cannons below and stick with Sneaker News for more recaps from this amazing game! via Yahoo!.

Nike LeBron 9 ‘Pre-Heat’ – Release Info

October 5th, 2011 by | 32 comments

nike lebron 9 pre heat 10 Nike LeBron 9 Pre Heat   Release Info

The ‘China’ colorway has traditionally been the first LeBron colorway to release for each signature model, but thanks to LeBron’s relocation from Cleveland to Miami, a new annual tradition has risen. Last year’s ‘Pre-Heat’ colorway of the LeBron signature shoe, commonly referred to as the ‘South Beach’, featured the dazzling hot pink and turquoise blue colorway, but this year’s Pre-Heat will be the ‘Cannon’ colorway, inspired by the Air Force Base where the Miami Heat have trained during the off-season. The Nike LeBron 9 ‘Pre-Heat’ has already hit stores overseas, but will officially hit the states this Sunday, October 9th, at select retailers in Miami like MrRSports, and again on November 11th to wider audiences. Keep these dates circled on your calendar because they’re about to drop soon, or cop a pair in advance from limitedshoes on eBay.

Nike LeBron 9 ‘Cannon’ – Available Early on eBay

The Nike LeBron 9 won’t make an official release until tomorrow, when the ‘China’ colorway drops overseas, but we’ve already seen a healthy share of upcoming colorways that have boiled up the excitement around LeBron’s ninth signature shoe. The ‘Cannon’ colorway was the first high energy, non-’in-line’ edition of the LeBron 9 we laid eyes on, and a quick connection to the Miami Hurricanes was made for its apparent Green/Orange colorway. However, Nike’s ‘Cannon’ color designation is more of a light aqua blue with a slight green tint, which actually shines through when paired with the orange. The ‘Cannon’ is actually inspired by Elgin Air Force Base – the location of the Miami Heat training camp prior to the 2010-11 season. These aren’t set for an official release until November 11th, but if you want these in your hands ahead of time, cop one now from kicks_hnd on eBay.
