LeBron James is currently on his 19th signature sneaker with the Swoosh, but that hasn’t stopped him from revisiting and retroing some of his earlier models. As the world waits for some of the most iconic Nike LeBron 9 styles to return, “the kid from Akron” and his Nike family are outfitting their ninth mainline collaboration in an all-new “South Coast” colorway.
Akin to some styles released during King James’ time with the Miami Heat, the upcoming sneakers indulge in a number of neon hues and South Florida-appropriate graphics. “Black” and “Dutch Blue” take over most of the 10-year-old design, but “Lime Glow” and “Fusion Red” flair across everything from the profile swooshes to the collar lining help animate the pair in Miami-inspired flair. Nike LeBron logos appear all throughout the offering, but palm tree patterns are isolated onto the shoes’ inner lining, perhaps suggesting the “South Coast” colorway was scrapped from the silhouette’s original roster of arrangements.
Enjoy detailed images of James’ latest LeBron 9 retro here below, and find pairs hitting Nike.com on January 20th.
