Nike LeBron 9 Specs: Max + Zoom Air, Hyperfuse, Flywire »

Mar 18, 2011 at 4:50 pm | lebron-ixshoes

We still await releases of LeBron 8 P.S., Nike Soldier V and even LeBron 8 V/2 Low, but details about the next shoe in the series – Nike LeBron 9 – have just leaked to the Internet. Similar to the Post Season edition of the Eight, LeBron James’ Ninth signature model is a combo of Max Air, Zoom Air, Hyperfuse and Flywire. The upper is constructed with Hyperfuse technology combined with supportive midfoot wing and first generation Flywire construction harness. The midolse incorporates 180 Max Air in the heel, but it’s most likely the reengineered version just like the 8 P.S., and Zoom Air in the forefoot. Additionally, carbon fiber based shank ensures lightweight protection. The bad news is the price. The MSRP is $165, which is $5 more than the last two signature models. First colorways – 469764-001 (Black/Black), 469764-003 (Black/White), 469764-100 (White/Red) – are slated to drop in October. It’s too early to tell if all this information is valid, but we’ll provide updates once available.

    they are going to be $#$%@

  • I can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!
    I was wondering why the LeBron 8 P.S. didn’t have flywire with hyper fuse and all that the LeBron 9 will have…I guess they save it for this one.

    I guess the v3’s (P.S.) LeBron 8’s will topped off with the LeBron 9. I’m going to save up money NOW for these shoes.

    Crazy light, stability…I think these will be literally… designed and engineered to the exact specifications of MR LEBRON JAMES. lol

    These are going to be the best basketball shoes for a long time…maybe

  • joneenee

    The V3s is going to be the best performance basketball shoe for a long time… :cool:
    OH! WAIT A SECOND?! :shock:

    THE XIs!!! :grin:

    LOOKING FWD ON THE DUNKMANS!!! THIS YEAR’S DUNKMAN WAS WHAAAACK!!! :x

  • I forgot all about the dunkman’s!!!
    If they have a Dunkman LeBron IX I have a feeling they will be really nice. We can’t forget about the all-stars! and a Christmas color way will probably pop up because it’s been a popular colorway in the past few years. CANT WAIT!!!!!

    I really hope they aint hyperfuse styles i’d rather him stay with making shoes that are more wearable with clothes because hyperfuse can be worn casually just doesn’t look good though

    Your right, that is what I was thinking, but you know…can’t go wrong with a pair of LeBron’s!

  • Njp

    yea I love Lebrons I started collecting last year I use to get Jordans but they fell of quick and compare no where near Lebrons quality

  • Ethan

    Ha from the specs these are just AM Flybys but I cant wait to see them

  • This is ridiculous! LOOK AT THE PRICE PEOPLE! You gotta think about economy. It’s like paying $200 dollars on Lebron’s shoes and your money go away. Nike Company and Lebron are raping your money to buy his shoes. They are just making profit for Lebron.

    See I have arguments like that all the time. If you take good care of them, some serious collector will probably be asking about these on this website or another or in the streets etc., and you can sell them for twice as much! It’s all about how you take care of the shoes. You keep ’em,you wear ’em and then you sell ’em! If you are a collector, you can keep them until you hear people asking about them. Sell them for twice as much, and guess what? If they buy it you have enough to buy the shoes all over again and still have money.

    Example:
    You buy All-Star LeBron’s for $150
    They go by quick & easy, so by the next day, all these websites would have them for $300 or something like that.Spread the word that your selling a pair for about $320 shipped.Someone buys them.You just made about $300 and have enough to buy another pair of LeBron’s, and still have about $150! The choice is your after you sell them. Keep all the money or half the money with another pair of LeBron’s.

  • ^ So instead of wasting money you are actually making money. Remember you gotta spend money to make money!

    ME TOO!!! Well I started collecting LeBron’s around…
    ’08-’09 not entirely sure, but I sure was collecting Jordan’s, and yeah they have crappy quality. I always liked LeBron, but I didn’t find out he had shoes until the Zoom LeBron V’s came out I believe.

  • chris

    they look like the lebron 8 v3 and 165 for an 180 air bubble i’m cool i just stick to the lebron 7 n 8 best lebrons

  • jjohns9

    I agree with njp on the “wearable with clothes” note. I think the maximum performance concern should just be saved for the P.S. version like the 7s and 8s.

  • Kinda bummed they are doing away with 360 air unit. Jason Petrie is the man though. I trust he will give us something filthy. Cant wait!

  • jr_lyon

    $165 for Hyperfuse with only 180 Air Max. I’m just not understanding the price. I’ve been collecting all kind of shoes for years and the price just doesn’t make sense on these. I love Lebron and his shoes and will buy them no matter what but I just disagree with the price point chosen for the 9s. It sounding like they’re going for strictly on court performance and wear in the design than off court casual wearablity like they have in the past couple years. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

  • joneenee

    THESE AINT same as AM FLY BY’s??!

    AM FLY BY’S doesnt have ZOOM AIR in forefoot… These joints here are made by all new found NIKE TECHNOLOGY FOR ON COURT PERFORMANCE… AIRMAX, ZOOM AIR, FLY WIRE, HYPERFUSE, FIBER PLATES…

  • jeromeee

    stop with the hyperfuse top… they aren’t that sturdy. I didn’t like hyperfuse at all. flywire would have been great though.

  • I been collecting lebrons since the #3’s they just get better and better……hands down the best bball sneakers out….and y’all l must don’t know how to dress if you can’t wear everyday cloths with em…

  • Njp

    no one said anything about not knowing how to dress Bodaga its the fact that these don’t look good for casual wear to much I usually have no problem with most shoes but hyperfuse is just to damn strange

  • I feel u

  • joneenee

    Hyperfuse are straight performance for me personally..but you know, sometimes it depends on color ways as well.. ;-)

  • wyatt6

    these are going to be ok but i still like the v2 but if they look like v2 p.s. ore beater i will buy them

  • razer

    $@!$ you ^&$#& who buy for resale. I never buy resale out of principle simply because you are %^#@%@.

    And yeh where is the full 360?

  • Jack

    Man fuck “Zoom Air” I can never even feel it in my kicks. Might as well use Phylon or Lunarfoam. Just bring back the 360 Air Max bag, that’s mostly the reason why the 7’s and 8’s were the best LeBrons.

  • Did you ever try the LeBron VII P.S. Seriously with those on your feet, trust me you will feel the “Zoom Air” and they perform really, really well

  • elio

    i got this shoes!!
