This Saturday, October 1st, the Nike LeBron 9 will make its official worldwide debut when the Neptune Blue/Total Orange Nike LeBron 9 ‘China’ releases in China. Here we have a look at a limited edition box packaging for the Nike LeBron 9 China Edition, which features the China Lion logo with a gorgeous backdrop of Chinese-inspired art; it features two contrasting tones of blue and orange strokes of color, and a matching t-shirt will be included as well. Some unfortunate conditions apply: Only nine units of this special box packaging will be released, going to the first 9 customers when the LeBron 9 ‘China’ goes on sale on Nikestore China. Check out the extra shots of the packaging below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for U.S. release information of the Nike LeBron 9 China Edition. via weibo.

LeBron James didn’t decide to become a New York Knick during his epic free agency summer of 2010, but who cares the inspiration for a sneaker’s colorway when it looks this good?! The royal and orange Nike LeBron 9 pictured above is the latest ‘China’ edition in King James’ Nike Basketball signature series, a model that along with the Dolphins-leaning colorway and Miami Hurricanes PEs has people seeing the Nines in a whole new light. LeBron’s career has been on something of an emotional roller coaster over the past few years so it’s fitting that his new kicks follow suit in the public opinion; is it safe to say the LeBron 9 is on track to be one of the most popular designs of the next twelve-plus months? Have a look at the first full-on images of the LeBron 9 ‘China’ and stick with Sneaker News for more photos and the release date. via lupecci on NT

The Carmelo Anthony sign-and-trade pretty well precludes LeBron James from being a New York Knick unless he ends up at MSG during a Shaq-style victory tour. And since he’ll never be welcome back in Cleveland again, we won’t get to see any more dope Hardwood Classics colorways, but these facts don’t combine to preclude any and all blue and orange Nike LeBron sneakers. In fact, if the release timing over the past few years proves any indication of things to come, it won’t be very long at all before the Nike LeBron 9 ‘China’ makes its way to retail. This Cavs throwback -slash- Knicks/Mets getup is reminiscent of the epic ‘Birthday’ Zoom Lebron IV and may be a sign of things to come for 2012′s Year of the Dragon releases; perhaps that explains the detailing on the middle eyelets of these teaser images. Click through for more and let us know how these stack up against the ever-growing LeBron 9 ranks, and stick with Sneaker News for more information on the developing LeBron 9 ‘China’.
