With the "Barcelona" Kobe VI and "10.0" Blake Griffin Hyperdunk 2011 releases, Bright Mango has made its presence felt in Nike's basketball range this year, and we can expect to see more of it in 2012. Pictured here is an early look at an upcoming Nike LeBron 9 colorway, which adds the vibrant orange hue to a black and metallic silver backdrop. A mango speckle print also appears on the black midsole, which sits atop a mango Max Air bag and outsole to complete the look.

These are currently penciled in for a March 2012 release. Stick with Sole Collector for specific information in the coming weeks.
