By this time last year we already had a definitive Miami flavored colorway of the Nike LeBron 8, but has any one colorway cemented that same status for the Nike LeBron 9 as of yet?

While it doesn’t go for a flashy palette that many associate with the Miami aura, artist Freegums leaned a little more on the natural surroundings of Florida as inspiration for his fluid graphic prints that show up on the sneakers. Hit the jump to take a look at the video breakdown of Freegums discussing the background on this killer collab.
