Say ‘good bye’ to the last and final $170 Nike LeBron shoe. With the Elite hitting $250 and rumors of next year’s LeBron X going up to $180, the Summit Lake Hornets colorway of the Nike LeBron 9 might be the last you’ll see in the $170-range (that is, unless the Low-tops increase in price). Tomorrow’s release of the Summit Lake Hornets also marks the last mid-cut LeBron 9 shoe before we roll out the red carpet for the Low and the Elite, and this is where ‘saving the best for last’ bodes especially true. An energetic combination of Purple and Turquoise that may rival some of the best purple/turquoise sneakers in history (save the Air Jordan VIII ‘Aqua’), the LeBron 9 ‘Summit Lake Hornets’ is a definite must-have for any LeBron nut or anyone jumping on the bandwagon later than normal. You can catch them at Nike LeBron retailers tomorrow, or cop a pair now from bxwb84 on eBay.
