When pics of last year’s Nike LeBron 8 model first showed up in the standard black/red/white inline colorway, reactions were mixed and it wasn’t until the wildly popular South Beach edition that the masses started to change their tune in regards to the shoe. So far, early response to the Nike LeBron 9 has been similar to the last go-around, but we all knew it was only a matter of time before we got a look at the “energy” colorways sure to draw some additional excitement from the sneaker world. Here we get our first look at the “Miami” edition of the LeBron, featuring a Miami Hurricanes inspired colorway with a combo of green and orange further electrified by Volt accents. Stay tuned for more pics and info coming soon, and be on the lookout for more on the Miami LeBron 9 in the upcoming issue of Sneaker Freaker. For now, take a better look after the jump and let us know what you think.
UPDATE: It has been brought to our attention that the color inspiration for the shoe is not from the Miami Hurricanes, but actually derives from an Air Force base training camp event held last year. More info on that and further LeBron 9 specifics coming soon.
