Releasing tomorrow in Asia is the Nike LeBron 9 ‘China’ – the first released ‘Blue/Orange’ colorway of a Nike LeBron signature sneakers since the Nike Zoom LeBron IV ‘Birthday’. What makes the Blue/Orange so special (or painful, to some)? It reminds Cleveland fans of the ‘Hardwood Classic‘ colorways that LeBron used to wear during those special throwback nights in Cleveland, and it also reminds New York Knick fans about LeBron spurning the Big Apple to hit up South Beach (not to worry, the Knicks have their own Big Three and are ready to throw down). In any case, the Nike LeBron 9 ‘China’ contains all of the detailed aspects we expect a special edition shoe to see; limited edition packaging (only 9 available), detailed graphics, and Chinese lettering on the heel, which translates to ‘fire’. If you don’t want to wait for a state-side release and don’t have a DeLorean handy, cop a pair now from kicks_hnd on eBay.
