Inspired by none other than the "Kid" Ken Griffey Jr is this all new upcoming release of the Nike LeBron 9.

Previewed several times in the past, the "Swingman" LeBron 9 utilizes a full green abyss and obsidian upper representing Ken Griffey Jr's days with the Seattle Mariners. Hits of red are also utilized throughout, taking care of the heel tab, tongue signature and midsole plate. White contrasts on the Swoosh and outsole, as well as the Griffey inspired Dunkman logo on the heel.

The Nike LeBron 9 "Swingman" is scheduled to release at select Nike Basketball retailers nationwide on March 2nd.
