Kicks: Nike LeBron 9 ‘Cannon’

This fresh colorway dropped in Miami this weekend.

Here’s a fresh look at “The Cannon” edition of the Nike LeBron 9, a new colorway of the LeBron 9 that features a military-green theme inspired by the Heat’s preseason camp at the military base in Fort Walton Beach, Fla. last fall. These were made specially available to MIA residents Saturday night, when a limited release kicked off at midnight at Miami’s House of Hoops, with a wider release expected to come at a later date. They’re also noteworthy because these are the first kicks to combine the Flywire and Hyperfuse technologies in one sneaker.

LBJ was the first to rock these, as he wore them during Saturday’s South Florida All Star Classic while his squad fell to Team Wade 141-140 in an overtime thriller. (Here’s a full recap.) In the meantime, peep the images above, including a shot of Bron wearing the sneaks as he faced up against opposing team captain DWade.

    They literally look like crap. I guess the Nike design team took a cue from LeBron and stopped caring before the design was finished. #Ugly

    The 8 P.S’s looked infinitely better than these pieces of crap.
    Although I am wondering what the $200 “Elite” versions will look like…


    the older black and red ones with the Lion head is much better.

    These look comfortable and light. Give a pair away in a caption slam – I’ll say something groundbreakingly hilarious

    This just looks like a no nonsense performance basketball shoe. That last two models were more of a blend between casual wear and performance. I’d love a pair to hoop in. I just bought a pair of the Lebron 8 PS and they feel great on the court.

    I like the sneaker design (better than anything Jordan brand ever designed for their players) but the colors are weak. And why is LeBron treating every single drop like a retro Jordan with ridiculous amounts of colorways. Sidenote: Amare’s Air Max Sweep Thru’s might be the best PE kicks droppin http://sneakernews.com/2011/10/10/nike-basketball-holiday-2011-pe-pack/

    Colors suck but the design is great, and the performance must be remarkable.

    Lebron James is an asshole. He chokes in the finals and then releases a f@#king shoe! Get a dick, asshole.
