Nine years in the making, Nike Basketball presents the limited edition LeBron 9 Championship Pack, celebrating LeBron James' first NBA Championship. The pack consists of the MVP LeBron 9 and the red-based LeBron 9 PS Elite James debuted in the Finals.
Previewed and worn by LeBron in May, the "MVP" LeBron 9 features a gradient fade from red to black with yellow detailing on the upper. Additional details include an MVP graphic on the heel and trophies printed on the sockliner.
The LeBron 9 PS Elite is featured in a red and black colorway with golden highlights. Tech includes a midfoot harness that wraps around the foot, Flywire for strength and lockdown support, and a tuned midsole that houses both Max Air 180 and Zoom cushioning elements.
The pack will be available in limited quantities across North America and China this Saturday, August 11. Locations and pricing have yet to be announced.
