Lebron 9 (IX) Is Just Around the Corner

Since the new NBA Season is just around the corner, shoe brands are now introducing the different signature shoe models that will be out in the near future. One of those is the soon to be released edition of Miami Heat superstar LeBron “King” James signature shoe line, the Nike Air Max LeBron 9. Nike has been producing this LeBron James line since he entered the league on 2003. Different models have been released and this will be the ninth edition for the LeBron signature shoe line. Fortunately, they have been successful with the line and no doubt that it is one of the higher selling lines worldwide.

For LeBron, a former Rookie of the Year, a gold medalist in the 2008 Olympics, and a two-time MVP of the NBA, Nike has come up again with a pair that suits his game of mixed finesse and power. For maximum comfort and lightweight design, LeBron 9 will come featuring the newly-designed fuse technology on the upper part, carbon fiber covering the rear part, Zoom Air on the forefoot and the 180-degree Air Max unit on the heel part. Completing the design is the traditional LeBron signature on the tongue and logos behind the shoe and on its sole.

It would be a plus if Nike includes extra white and red laces to give customers a variety of options to customize their pairs. With the design, the shoe looks very promising. It can cater guards who need to be quick and explosive to the basket, as well as forwards and centers who need to establish force underneath. Lebron is an all-around player that is why all his signature shoes are for all positions of the game.

There is no information yet on the date of release but rumors are circulating that it probably come out this coming October. The rumored color to be out first is the traditional Black/Varsity Red/White combination, also known as “breds”. This will be first of the many color ways to be released during the span of the upcoming NBA season, if ever the lockout will be lifted this year. This will probably be followed by a lighter colored model with a combination of White/Varsity Red/Black, still related to Miami Heat’s team colors of course. Design and materials used are almost the same as its predecessor except for a more lightweight look and feel compared to that of the LeBron 8 V1 and V2 versions. This new model will be composed of the same materials that were used in the last edition of the LeBron 8 line, LeBron 8 PS (Post Season). This will probably retail at around $175 to $190 price range.

There are no words yet on how many models and colors the Nike Air Max LeBron 9 would have. It would depend on how King James plays on the court and how the Miami Heat performs as a team. One thing is for sure, avid Nike customers would not pass on a smooth-looking pair like this.
