With the delayed NBA season to start in just a few day, the new Nike LeBron 9 Big Bang made a brief appearance today with a release date set sometime in 2012. In vibrant orange outline with a darker gradient of the color as inlay, all on icy semi-transparent outsole. Special graphics, in the forms of a galaxy and presumably the likeness to the constellation Leo, are sublimated onto the interior, the insole, as well as portion of the exterior shank. Designers also took the time to redesign a new LeBron signature specifically for this particular edition. No official date of release is available at this time with the exception of this preview pair from retailer MarqueeSole.
