Each lowtop version of the Nike LeBron signature series has been a casual-friendly variation released during summer since the cut-off Vs first hit back in 2008, and the latest offers arguably the biggest departure from its flagship model over those five years. The Nike LeBron 9 Low eschews the IX’s signatre woven panel in favor of a more straightforward Hyperfuse construction, but the overall result is equally compelling in its own right, especially when shown off in this vibrant ‘Easter’ colorway that we’ve also seen on the Zoom KD IV coming up for later this spring. The egg-finding holiday is one that Nike Basketball hadn’t celebrated as much in years gone by, but it has us curious for what else might be in store (Zoom Kobe VII, anyone?), as well as which other celebrations might end up offering inspiration to future releases.

By now, you should have a firm grasp on the Nike LeBron 9 Low; Hyperfuse upper, no weave panel, 360-degree Max Air unit. After previewing a number of upcoming colorways (and providing the first detailed look at a Black/Volt/White pair not long ago), Sneaker News is now ready to roll out the red carpet on the upcoming Summer 2012 hit – the Nike LeBron 9 Low. Here we have a look at a new high-energy colorway that may very well be the Dark Grey/Mint Candy edition we showed you during the Summer 2012 preview of the shoe; it features a dark grey upper with the dazzling mint on the outsole with touches of aqua blue on the tongue, midfoot ‘wing’ and Max Air unit, and is currently being dubbed the ‘Easter’ edition (possibly a May release?). Do these rival the Solar Red or Sprite LeBron 8 V/2? Check out the detailed images below and let us know what you think. via marqueesole.
