Not long ago we gave you some clear images of the ‘Christ The King’ PE of the Nike LeBron 9 in the ‘Home’ colorway, but as you know, these school-based special editions always come in pairs. Here’s a first detailed look at the ‘Away’ pair alongside a new detailed set of images of the ‘Home’; both featured the Wine and Gold colorway with speckled midsoles for a bit of flair as well as the Christ The King emblem on the tongues for that touch of authenticity. Would you have liked to see these, alongside the other High School PE’s release? Perhaps LeBron will wear these in a game soon, seeing that he wore the ‘Fairfax’ PE during a recent showdown against the Lakers. Flip through the gallery below and let us know which of the two you like better! via ivegottheshoez

Although commissioner David Stern no longer allows high-school players to go directly into the NBA draft, LeBron James continues to be a role model to high-school level players who have dreams of NBA super-stardom. His influence in the high-school ranks have reached some notable schools across the nation, like his alma mater of St. Vincent-St. Mary as well as Fairfax H.S. and Christ The King in Queens, NY. We recently showed you the PEs from the first two named schools, so here’s a look at the Home and Away PE’s for Christ The King; the ‘Home’ features a mix of White, Burgundy, and Gold, with the ‘Away’ capturing the same essence in reverse-color-blocked fashion. Both feature the ‘Christ The King’ namesake on the tongue as well as some speckling on the midsoles. Would you cop if these High School PE’s hit retail? The response to the Fairfax proves that these would indeed be major hits. No word on a release yet, but check out the extra images below and let us know what you think. via fresh_money on NT
