Happy Birthday LeBron James! To commemorate his birthday, which is today, Nike is releasing the LeBron 9 Freegums on December 31st, 2011. The graphic art imagery, seen on the inner lining and toe box, was designed by Miami artist Alvaro Ilizarbe, also known as Freegums. Nike released 50 pairs in special boxes earlier this month to celebrate the artist, and now everyone can join in on the celebration. This is the 11th colorway for the Nike LeBron 9, which concludes 2011, but there are still many amazing styles slated for next year. The LeBron 9 Freegums will be available at all House of Hoops (including Europe) locations and most Foot Locker stores, and of course nikestore.com. The MSRP is $170 and they come in Men’s and Kids’ sizes. The retail version features LeBron’s white signature drawer box with Freegums’ special tissue paper.
