Nike is loosening its grip on the rare, highly collectible LeBron PEs of the past by slowly releasing these once sought-after editions to the public. Of all that’s dropped so far, the recent release of the LeBron 9 “Watch The Throne” was clear indication that Nike is relying on these cheat-code drops to revitalize the LeBron business, one that has considerably slowed over the last half decade due to trends. The few LeBron fanatics with deep pockets that dropped hefty dollars on these rarities back in the day might feel the gut punch of seeing their “investments” shrink down to GR status, but for most of us, it’s a long time coming.
Official images of another super-limited PE, the LeBron 9 Low “LeBronold Palmer”, have surfaced. Originally appearing in the summer of 2012, this unique iteration was inspired by LeBron’s favorite cool-down drink – the half-half blend of lemonade and iced tea inspired by golf great Arnold Palmer. Nike decorated the silhouette with tropical flora in an attractive yellow, teal, and pink colorway, officially releasing on only two occasions (the LeBron 12 Low and LeBron 18 Low).
Following up on reports late last year, the LeBron 9 Low “LeBronold Palmer” will indeed be releasing in 2022. LeBron himself wore the shoes during the recent All-Star Weekend festivities as well, so it’s just a matter of time before we learn of the release date and MSRP. We’ll let you know when that information arrives, so for now, check out the official images ahead.
