With the NBA season delayed by a lockout, the Nike LeBron 9 made its October 2011 debut with a trio of college-inspired colorways. One of these was made in the likeness of the University of Kentucky Wildcats, who also got PE versions of the LeBron 9 with their logo on the tongue. That exceedingly rare design never hit retail, but if the price is right, you’ll be able to add them to your collection. This white and blue makeup with ‘UK’ on the tongue is all the more significant with Kentucky winning its eighth National Championship to conclude the season, and given how passionate the Wildcats’ fanbase is, your interest in these should be expressed sooner rather than later now that they’re available from thecoolshoeshine on eBay.
