lebron 9 kentucky wildcats pe Nike LeBron 9 Kentucky Wildcats PE on eBay

There was a point in time this off-season when the Cleveland Cavaliers offered current Kentucky Coach John Calipari keys to the kingdom. Their reasoning? He was that close with LeBron James and would increase the chances that The King might return to Cleveland. While LeBron made his way to the shores of Lake Erie regardless of Calipari opting to stay in Kentucky, their mutual Nike connection should ensure Wildcat PEs in LeBron silhouettes for years to come. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that one of the Swoosh’s marquee collegiate basketball programs always get first dibs on the latest Nike signature, and this Nike LeBron 9 PE is a testament to that longstanding tradition. The pair keeps that signature royal blue and white intact while the ‘UK’ logo gets a prominent feature on the tongue. What do you think? Grab more pictures after the click and pick this rare find via jonallon80 on eBay.

Nike LeBron 9 – Kentucky Home PE

While the NBA was mired in a lock-out, Nike Basketball shrewdly created three on-court and available-for-retail colorways of the Nike LeBron 9 modeled after three big-name collegiate basketball squads – the University of Kentucky, the University of Miami, and the Ohio State University. Dubbed the ‘University Pack’, all three colorways (sans team logos) hit stores, starting with the ‘Kentucky’, which dropped first in mid-October. Here we have a look at the ‘Home’ version of that PE (notice the UK logo on the tongue); it features a White primary base with Varsity Royal on the Hyperfuse/Flywire shell, Midsole, Weave paneling, and inner lining. Better than the ‘Away’? Check out the gallery of images below and let us know which College PE colorway of the LeBron 9 you like best. via LRJ23.

Nike LeBron 9 ‘Kentucky’ – Release Reminder

October 14th, 2011 by | 12 comments

nike lebron 9 university pack kentucky release reminder Nike LeBron 9 Kentucky   Release Reminder

The Nike LeBron 9 ‘Kentucky’ is set to debut tomorrow, but let’s take a look back at another Nike LeBron Kentucky PE – the Nike Air Max LeBron VII. The Kentucky Wildcats debuted that sick patent-leather PE on February 1st, 2010, when LeBron James himself sat courtside during a game. That PE, which could also be compared to the Nike Air Penny sneaker, featured a blue patent leather mudguard with Black/White upper detailing. Now compare the two – the Air Max LeBron VII and LeBron 9 – and tell us which of the two looks more ‘Penny Hardaway’; the LeBron 9, which bears some resemblance to the Nike Air 1/2 Cent, or the Air Max leBron VII, which could be another ‘Heroes Pack’ variation? Well, you’re better off picking the LeBron 9′s side, because these will actually release in stores – tomorrow to be exact. Expect them at select Nike Basketball retailers or pick up a pair now on eBay.

Nike LeBron 9 ‘Kentucky’ – Release Date

October 13th, 2011 by | 20 comments

nike lebron 9 kentucky mrrsports summary Nike LeBron 9 Kentucky   Release Date

The idea for NCAA-inspired colorways of the Nike LeBron 9 actually goes back to the Nike Air Max LeBron VII, when three ‘TB’ inspired colorways released for Kentucky, Ohio State, and Clemson (though not officially, but those three schools rocked ‘em proudly during the 2010 March Madness Tournament). Then again, many of the LeBron take-down models from the Zoom Soldier line were also made in various team-oriented colorways, but the LeBron 9 is the first time an actual PE was made for specific schools (check out the Miami Hurricanes PE from yesterday). The released versions of the NCAA Pack of LeBron 9s won’t feature the PE logos on the tongue, but the beauty of these releases lie in the great colorways, like the Kentucky version that many have called an ‘Air Penny’ edition. This Saturday, October 15th, select Nike Basketball retailers like MrRSports will have these in stock as will Nikestore, so check out the detailed gallery of images below and let us know if these are a must-have for you.

Nike LeBron 9 – Kentucky Wildcats ‘Home’ PE

October 13th, 2011 by | 2 comments

nike lebron 9 kentucky home 1 Nike LeBron 9   Kentucky Wildcats Home PE

What the Duke Blue Devils have been for Kobe Bryant in recent years, we might be seeing from the LeBron James-Kentucky Wildcats union: super-elite global basketball superstar who skipped college entirely hooks up with a traditional powerhouse whose historically blue and white uniforms have added a bit of black in the past decade or so.  And that just means a bunch of dope player exclusive colorways for UK, and coming up soon after Midnight Madness sets in will be this new Nike LeBron 9 home PE.  This edition finds its colorblocking flipped and then the black sections made white when compared with the ‘away’ edition we’d been seeing, but the biggest single difference here is the ‘UK’ tongue logo whose place was held by King James’ signature on the other pair.  Does this mean it’s only a matter of time before the Kentucky ‘away’ and Ohio State PEs both feature their schools’ respective logos?  Stick with Sneaker News to find out, and check out more images of the Kentucky LeBron 9s in the meantime.  via Mjmvp23 on NT

Late last week, Jason Petrie gave us a first look at the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Kentucky’ during a Q&A video chat session. It features a Royal Blue/Black upper with a white swoosh and outsole for that complete Wildcats appeal, but as we’ve mentioned before, it’s hard not to see this as an ‘Air Penny’ colorway. We’ve already seen some of the other NCAA-inspired colorways, like the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Miami Hurricanes, so which of the three do you like best? These are slated for a release at select retailers like Oneness in Kentucky this Friday at midnight, so check out the extra shot of the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Kentucky’  below and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for more release updates and information.
