Nike Basketball pays tribute to LeBron James‘ first championship with a limited edition footwear LeBron 9.
Worn by James the first game after being awarded the 2012
MVP Award, the LEBRON 9 MVP features striking team colors. A gradient
fade from red to black with yellow detailing comprise the upper, while
details including an MVP graphic on the heel and trophies printed on the
sockliner mark the award.
With a midfoot
harness that wraps around the foot, the shoe also incorporates Flywire
technology for strength and lock down support. The finely-tuned midsole
provides a unique hybrid cushioning system by combining Max Air 180 in
the heel for absorption on impact with a Nike Zoom unit in the forefoot
for a springy response.
Launching August 11 2012, the shoes will be sold as a pack and will be available in very limited quantities.
