The Nike LeBron 9 is set to drop in a "Hero Pack-esque" salute to former MLB slugger Ken Griffey Jr. Reminiscent of Griffey's time in the Emerald City, the "Swingman" edition of the shoe sports a Mariner-like Green Abyss synthetic upper, accented by subtle red hits on the tongue signature, LeBron logo and pull-tab. White works Swoosh branding on the side panels and a Swingman-inspired Jumpman logo on the heel. Obsidian chimes in on the tongue, laces, inner lining and midsole, while an emerald Max Air bag and white rubber outsole finish off the look below.
Look for the "Swingman" LeBron 9 to drop at Nike retailers on Friday, March 2.
