When the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Watch the Throne’ popped up it was a case of the age-old “life imitating art” thing, with the painstaking detail of the sneaker mimicking the cover art to Jay-Z and Kanye West’s collabo album of the same name. Looks like things have come full circle now, with art imitating life this time around, as a fellow by the name of VanShun has put together this killer display piece in tribute to that most-unattainable of Nike LeBron 9 colorways. Stripping the sneaker of the glittery gold context, this planar sculpture maintains the flossy feeling thanks to the geometric jewel and chain designs that wrap around the centerpiece sneaker. Follow us after the jump for some extra shots of the Nike LeBron 9 “Watch The Throne” sculpture, which is on display now at its fitting home of Shoe Gallery out in Miami.

‘Watch the Throne’ has proven a suitable nickname not only in terms of graphical detail, but also when it comes to the availability of the above pictured Nike LeBron 9 design.  Modeled after Riccardo Tisci’s graphics package from the monster hit Kanye West x Jay-Z collabo album, the WTT LeBron 9 is rumored to be one of the most limited sample runs ever with only the tiniest number of pairs in existence.   The seller makes the claim that this is the single most sought after Nike LeBron release in history; will you agree when you comment after clicking through to see more new images of this impressive and ‘endangered’ specimen?  Only a handful of hip-hop stars and LeBron himself have been spotted with a pair, which gives some context to the asking price you’ll see upon checking the auction from youbetshop on eBay.

Some fine detailing went into the design of the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Watch The Throne’ PE, and with just six pairs rumored to be in existence, it was certainly worth it to go all out on these special edition PEs. There are a few notable details about the WTT LeBron 9, like the luxurious black/gold colorway, the sublime graphic on the inner lining and laces inspired by Riccardo Tisci’s design work with Givenchy, but sitting atop the midfoot is one of the most eye-catching set of ‘lacelocks’ ever seen – the gold-plated jewel piece crafted by jeweler Gabriel Urist. Some of you may remember Urist’s gold-plated Air Max 1 replica from a few years back, but the Watch The Throne jewel piece takes the cake as the most dazzling sneaker-accessory ever created. We’ve got some additional shots of Urist doing his handiwork with these gems below, so take a look and let us know – is the LeBron 9 ‘Watch The Throne’ the best unreleased PE LeBron ever? via InsideTheSneakerBox.

G.O.O.D. Music rapper Big Sean has been working with adidas since his track ‘I Do It’ was featured as part of Derrick Rose’s first adiZero Crazy Light commercial.  And though he’s collaborated on a leopard print Superstar, we can’t forget that shortly after the Three Stripes partnership was rolled out, Sean showed up in concert in NYC wearing the ‘Grape’ Air Jordan V.  It’s one of his 25 favorite kicks ever as told to Complex, a list that contained plenty of Nike and Jordan classics.  It’s a brave new world where rappers can cross boundaries athletes only venture once, maybe twice in their careers.  And that’s kind of what it’s like to be a superstar producer like the appropriately named Hit-Boy.  Add in the fact that Big Sean is opening for Kanye West and Jay-Z on their ‘Watch the Throne’ tour and Hit Boy produced its most recent hit single, and it’s not so cray that both got gifted what is rumored to be one of seven pairs ofNike LeBron 9 WTTs.  Seriously, one of seven when you’re talking about a design this hot is balling so hard, and it looks like the photos you’ll see after the jump are as close as most will ever get to them.
