Kicks: Nike LeBron 9 Updates

A new colorway and special packaging for The King’s new kicks.

Since you haven’t heard enough about the LeBron 9 yet, here are a couple updates. First, a fresh colorway, officially deemed “Cool Grey/Vivid Grey/Black Cherry,” per SneakerNews. Available in early November, your guess is as good as ours as to where the color scheme’s inspiration comes from, but don’t be surprised to see some Raptors players hop on it quick.

The October 1-dropping Nike LeBron 9 China comes in a specially designed box with Dri-Fit LBJ 9 tee included. But, according to CounterKicks, this is an exclusive, which you’ll only get “if you’re among the first nine buyers of the shoe online or in seven cities in China.” That’s a total of 72 pairs. Supply and demand, folks.

Modern Notoriety dig some digging to find a tentative schedule of release dates, so mark your calendars accordingly, campers:

    The box itself will sell the show. Wassup with LBJ dropping all these fruity colors, man? The LeBron’s are going to be the official footwear of the gay community… not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    @o the marketing of the green/silver dunkman and the vivid grey/cherry 9 is either for streetgear or collectors not the court. 8′s look fresh wit jeans and a rocksmith, sneaktip etc. etc. 9′s will too. Zooms look better on the court, if they got too fly they’d look like women’s running shoes.

    I’m warming up to these. They’d look much better with a more conservative color way

    SLAM: You posted this as CRUCIAL? This is why your stuff is turning into garbage. How is this “update” crucial? Advising us as to the only way to get a t-shirt? You’re turning your posts into the unreadable category.
    As to the shoe: Jesus, I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing this LGBT shoe. However, I can see why Melo would wear it. It would match his pink dress shirts and probably his undies, too.

    I think these shoes appeal more to girl basetball players then men.
