When the Miami Heat open up the regular season this Sunday with an NBA Finals rematch against the World Champion Dallas Mavericks, LeBron James will be lacing up this special "Christmas" colorway of his latest signature shoe. Similar to last year's Christmas shoe, this Nike LeBron 9 pair sports a bright Sport Red synthetic base with tonal textile detailing on the side panels. Swoosh branding is done in Reflective Silver, while white takes care of LeBron's signature on the tongue and the logo plate on the heel. Lucky Green is used for one of the lace sets and the heel pull-tab. Completing the look below is an icy translucent rubber outsole.
The "Christmas" LeBron 9 will hit NikeStore on Christmas Day and physical retailers a day later. Price will be $170.
Color: Sport Red/Reflective Silver-White-Lucky Green
