The first Nike LeBron 9 to make a big splash this year was the ‘China’ edition, which dropped first overseas. Also dubbed the ‘Blue Flame’ as well as the ‘Year of the Dragon’ to commemorate 2012’s Year of the Dragon on the Chinese Zodiac, the LeBron 9 China accentuated a number of design details for the new sneaker, like the ‘Wing’ on the midfoot that features the neat graphic, the two toned upper that separated the Flywire/Hyperfuse shell and the weave panel, and the Max Air/Zoom Air cushioning, which was dotted with neat speckling. Sneaker News gave early confirmation of the U.S. release of the ‘China’, and tomorrow it will certainly be available at select Nike Basketball retailers, like Nikestore. Are these a must-have in your budding LeBron 9 stash? Check out the images below and don’t hesitate to cop a pair right now from washihuang on eBay.
