Before we move on to the Low and Elite Series, Nike will be releasing one last colorway of the standard LeBron 9 signature shoe. The 18th different colorway to hit retail, this pair salutes LeBron's old AAU team, the Summit Lake Hornets. Pure Purple dominates the shoe's upper, accented by turquoise on the Swoosh logos, trim along the tongue, heel pull-tab, Hornets logo and speckled midsole. Wrapping things up below is a white 180-Max Air unit and outsole.
The official drop is scheduled for Saturday, March 31 at Miami's Mr. R Sports.
