Sneaks on the Ave: Nike Lebron 9 'Scarface'



Nike LeBron 9
White/White-Black-Sport Red (Home/Scarface)

Last year's Miami inspired colorways for the Nike LeBron 8 like the 'South Beach' and 'Miami Nights' were the clear kings of the hill for must haves, so will King James' latest signature shoe have a similar fate? With the Nike LeBron 9 finally starting to pop up on a slew of exciting colorways, this pair fuses the standard Miami Heat colors with a bit more sinister inspiration; the iconic imagery of the classic gangster film Scarface.

The stark combo of black and white mixes in swaths of red that make the inspiration clear. Let us know how these line up against the other 's we've seen so far and stay tuned for more info on the 'Scarfaces'.

Sneaks on the Ave: Nike Lebron 9 'Kentucky' Colorway, plus a couple other LBJ 9 colorways





 Late last week, Jason Petrie gave us a first look at the Nike LeBron 9 'Kentucky' during a Q&A video chat session. It features a Royal Blue/Black upper with a white swoosh and outsole for that complete Wildcats appeal, but as we've mentioned before, it's hard not to see this as an 'Air Penny' colorway. We've already seen some of the other NCAA-inspired colorways, like the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Miami Hurricanes, so which of the three do you like best? These are slated for a release at select retailers like Oneness in Kentucky this Friday at midnight, so check out the extra shot of the Nike LeBron 9 'Kentucky'  above and be sure to stick with Sneaker News and BlvdAve for more release updates and information. Bonus: Here's a look at a couple other colorways of the Lebron 9.

Sneaks on the AVE 1st look: Nike LeBron 9 (IX)


By his ninth signature shoe, Michael already won 3 titles and called it quits (he felt he had nothing else to accomplish). LeBron, on the other hand, is just getting started. Despite the missing championship piece to the jigsaw puzzle of greatness, LeBron James has built himself quite a legacy thus far and has already established his namesake among the greatest signature sneaker lines of all time. He joins Michael Jordan as the only other Nike/Jordan athlete to have reached nine signature shoes, and as one of the lead figures of the Nike Basketball campaign, it's expected to see the Nike LeBron display the best and brightest the Swoosh has to offer.


The Nike LeBron 8 was unlike any other in that it featured three different installments and two completely different shoes. The LeBron 8 V/1 and V/2 featured identical silhouettes, but with alternate materials, but the V/3 (or the P.S.) was a radically re-tooled sneaker, utilizing the Max Air / Zoom Air footbed and Hyperfuse technology. The , previewed here on Sneaker News back in March, will carry over from the LeBron 8 P.S., using Hyperfuse and a similar cushioning platform, but will also feature Flywire along with a carbon-fiber shank plate and carbon-fiber weave panels on the upper for added stability.

Additional details include the oversized autograph on the tongue, the heel-tab mimicking an F1 race-car spoiler, an all-new herringbone traction on the outsole, and LeBron's new LJ logo. Check out this first look at the Nike LeBron 9 below and stick with Sneaker News for all your Nike LeBron 9 updates. via kicks-lab.
