According to Jason Petrie – the lead designer for Nike’s LeBron James collection – the Varsity Maize colorway of the Nike LeBron 9 PS was designed in order to “push the Miami Heat colors in a new way, and maybe even get the team to rock yellow if they wanted. But ultimately it was just to take a fresh spin on the Miami Heat color palette”. The mission has been definitely accomplished. The shoes come out in May, but it’s still unlikely for LeBron James to wear them in the NBA Playoffs. He will definitely showcase a couple of other PEs.
