While Nike has already released the LeBron 9 in a few different colorways — the special China edition, the Cannon, the University of Kentucky-inspired model — the Black/Sport Red version, considered the flagship LeBron colorway beginning with the Air Zoom Generation, doesn’t officially drop until tomorrow. We’ve known for months now about how the shoe boasts an embarrassment of riches in terms of leading-edge Nike technologies, including Hyperfuse construction, Flywire, Max 180 Air and Zoom Air. We’ve seen more than our fair share of preview images that show off the faux carbon fiber textile wings, oversized mesh and foam tongue, as well as elongated heel tab, all working together to create a spectacularly designed shoe. And thanks to those previously mentioned releases, we know the shoe is already earning rave reviews from guys who’ve laced theirs up on the basketball court. Now all you have to do is a wait a few more hours to pick up your own pair in the classic Black/Sport Red colorway. Click through for more images as well as the official Nike press release.
