Kicks: Nike LeBron 9 ‘Cannon’

by October 09, 2011


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.
