Nike LeBron 9 "Cheetah" by Mache Custom Kicks (3)

words // Brandon Richard

With his latest re-working of the Nike LeBron 9, Mache borrowed the "Cheetah" look used on the Christmas Day Kobe VII. Presumably using the "Summit Lake" LeBron 9 as the base shoe, Mache applied volt-like paint to the tongue, Swoosh logos and midsole, while dark blotches repeated throughout create the cheetah effect. Red works the tongue signature, laces and re-painted cheetah logo on the heel tab. A white Max Air bag and outsole finish off the look below.
