Sneakerheads have it pretty good these days, being able to see what’s coming down the pipeline for their favorite models months in advance thanks to the rapid proliferation of images through this beloved series of tubes known as the internet. With that being said, it is kinda nice when a colorway manages to stay under wraps so close to the release date, making the wow factor that much more pronounced. One such sneaker is the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Black History Month’, a model that we knew was on its way but didn’t even see the light of day until about 24 hours ago. Fortunately we’re back with another look, one that gives you a better sense of the vibrant color and intricate detail on the textile-like graphic applications. Follow us after the jump for the full photo set courtesy of Rock City Kicks and be on the lookout for the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Black History Month’ at your local sneaker spot come Saturday, February 11th.
