The ‘China’ colorway has traditionally been the first LeBron colorway to release for each signature model, but thanks to LeBron’s relocation from Cleveland to Miami, a new annual tradition has risen. Last year’s ‘Pre-Heat’ colorway of the LeBron signature shoe, commonly referred to as the ‘South Beach’, featured the dazzling hot pink and turquoise blue colorway, but this year’s Pre-Heat will be the ‘Cannon’ colorway, inspired by the Air Force Base where the Miami Heat have trained during the off-season. The Nike LeBron 9 ‘Pre-Heat’ has already hit stores overseas, but will officially hit the states this Sunday, October 9th, at select retailers in Miami like MrRSports, and again on November 11th to wider audiences. Keep these dates circled on your calendar because they’re about to drop soon, or cop a pair in advance from limitedshoes on eBay.
