Nike has made a habit of creating a low top LeBron just in time for the Summer (And this year, LeBron sandals!). Since the LeBron 9 was released, many have wondered what the low top version would look like since the design heavily incorporates a stability wing. With these official pictures the speculation has ended, and we can see that Nike has completely done away with the stability wing, and added a full Hyperfuse upper to create a sleek low top design.
One of the main differences between the LeBron 9 and the LeBron 9 Low is that the Low comes equipped with an Air Max 360 Bag for a more cushioned ride. LeBron James himself switched to an Air Max bag because the Zoom bag negatively impacted his knees during the 81 game season. Think of the Air Max unit being more like a pillow and the Zoom Air more like a spring. For those who want to rock these casually, The Air Max 360 bag is definitely the better choice for comfort.
The LeBron 9 Low in Black – White – Sport Red drops Summer 2012 for $149.99 USD.
Care of Dunk.
