Cop: Nike LeBron 9 “Swingman”

By Gotty™ / 02.27.12

No rest for the financially weary sneakerhead after a monster set of releases in February. Not with Nike Basketball dropping the LeBron 9 “Swingman” this weekend. The kicks are a reference to one of James’ childhood sports heroes, Ken Griffey Jr., and are highlighted by a Swingman-inspired Dunkman logo on the heel. The upper comes draped in a very Seattle-like shade of abyss green mixed with teal, white and traces of red, most notably seen on the sole’s shank plate. Designer Jason Petrie calls the “Swingman” his top LBJ 9 color choice and I tend to agree because these are absolutely illmatic.

Retailers will be expecting you on Friday, March 2.
