Nike Basketball pays tribute to LeBron James' first championship with a limited edition footwear pack featuring both the LeBron 9 and LeBron 9 PS.
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.
The LEBRON 9 PS Elite was worn by James in game one of the 2012 Finals and is featured in this red and black colorway. 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, the two shoes will be sold as a pack and will be available in very limited quantities.
