Is Freegums’ design the most important Nike LeBron 9 release so far? You could argue that the ‘Cannon’, ‘China’ or ‘Miami Nights’ has drawn more attention (though you’d probably just be saying which one you like best), but did any of those designs make it into LeBron James’ new UNKNWN retail spot (other than on the iPad-enhanced shelves)? It’s Freegums’ handiwork at the front door of the new Aventura Mall location, the same kind of intricate detail that marks the lining of his LeBron 9 collaboration. A select few were able to get pairs early at the private release party during Art Basel, but the general public will have to wait until New Year’s Eve for the chance to grab a pair at select Nike Basketball retailers like Millennium Shoes. But somewhere in the middle of these two polar opposites is a group nearly as elite as the Shoe Gallery party attendees: the select few who’ll be ahead of the curve by buying a pair that’s already available on eBay.
