Given all the beastly tie-ins on the Kobe side of things, how did LeBron get stuck with a hornet as his spirit animal? OK that’s not exactly how it happened, as the ‘Summit Lake Hornets’ motif is actually a tribute to the youth league team where LeBron got his start. And while the colorway homage lands on a squad the vast majority of us have never seen play, the pair pulls through with the teal/purple combo and the nice bit of background story. Follow us after the jump for some up close shots and stick with Sneaker News for word on a release date for the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Summit Lake Hornets’ as soon as it becomes available. via HC

Last March’s ‘Summit Lake Hornets‘ LeBron 8 V/2 wasn’t even the most significant shoe released that day (that would have been the ‘Entourage’ edition), but the follow up is shaping up as one of 2012′s most talked about new colorways.  The Nike LeBron 9 looks spectacular in a full-on grape explosion that really captures the vibrant energy that made the Charlotte Hornets’ early ’90s gear so attractive.  The coolest AAU PE in the world adds a wasp insignia on the heel badge as well as speckling on the teal midsole, and while this is an undeniably sick colorway, how do they rank against arguably more detail-rich colorups like the ‘Big Bang/All-Star’ or Freegums’ collabo drop?  Let us know with a comment when you click through to see a whole run of new images and stick with Sneaker News to get updates including the Summit Lake Hornets LeBron 9 release date.  via Air-Randy

There were eleven released colorways of the Nike LeBron 9 in 2011, but the onslaught doesn’t stop there as Nike Basketball has a few more goodies slated for Spring and Summer of 2012. One such release is the ‘Summit Lake Hornets’ colorway, which has manifested itself in LeBrons since the Nike Zoom Soldier II; it features a tonal purple upper with a pairing with a rich teal on the swoosh and midsole among other areas, with white speckling on the midsole and a white outsole. These are definitely a eye-catching colorway to say the least, but with Nike iD giving LeBron fans the ability to make their own colorways, how successful will the general releases? We’ve got a few more angles of these bad-boys after the jump, so take a look and let us know where this ranks among all Nike LeBron 9 colorways. via kickz-lab.

The Summit Lake Hornets player exclusive colorway of the Nike LeBron 9 was met with such a positive reaction when it was revealed this morning on Sneaker News, that the only thing resembling a negative comment was one expressing envy toward the recent history of unreleased heat from the Nike LeBron line.  But fret not, sneaker friends, because the ‘Summit Lake Hornets’ LeBron 9 might be released in limited numbers as with a variety of previous LeBron PEs, but they do indeed appear firmly pointed toward something better than a look-but-don’t-touch showoff.  LBJ’s Hornets were named after the Larry Johnson-led sensation that captured young ballers’ imaginations in the early ’90s; has this coincidence in timing led to the King’s best signature release some twenty years later?  Let us know how these rank against the other high-energy colorups that led the LeBron 9 charge and stick with Sneaker News for word on the US release date.  via MarqueeSole
