That Kyrie Irving is the only Cavalier with a Nike LeBron PE means there will be no more ‘HWC’ colorways from Cleveland’s prodigal son, but thankfully, Nike Basketball has recognized that this shouldn’t keep sneakerheads from getting the ever sick blue/orange combo on a pair of LBJs. The Nike LeBron 9 ‘China’ breaks from the traditional white/red/gold look for a colorway so good, they make David Stern’s plan to expand the league into addiitonal continents seem somewhat sensible. These might turn out to be harder to get than courtside Knicks tickets, though, espeically the special edition packages that only released alongside nine pairs (72 total) at each retail location when the ‘China’ LeBron 9s released over the weekend. Does the slideout drawer and intricate flame graphics make this the best box we’ve ever seen for one of LeBron James’ Nikes? Click through to see the entire package in close-up detail and stick with Sneaker News for more updates on the U.S. release date, and get a pair of the LeBron 9 Chinas now on eBay.
