Nike went a different route with this year's "Miami Nights" LeBron shoe, but collectors will always link the popular concept to the original. For those who would have liked to see the look carry over, Mache Custom Kicks has made it a reality, creating a V/2-inspired version of the LeBron 9.
Using the "Mango" LeBron 9 as the base shoe, Mache applied the black-splattered Solar Red and Glass Blue print to the shoe's upper. The Swoosh logos and midsole have been repainted white, with additional changes made to the tongue signatures and pull-tabs.
According to Mache, these will be available soon on MacheCustoms.com.
