I recently posted a detailed mockup of a redone Cool Grey LeBron 9 in a mash-up custom that took cues from the LeBron 9 MVP and the classic South Beach colorway. I couldn’t resist actually cooking up a pair immediately. What you see above and after the jump is the tasty dish fully cooked and served up beach side. This selection can be pre-ordered after the jump or in the AF1King Online Shop. Allow some decent lead time for creation as this sneaker is my Summer Finale dish and I have lots to do before my summer break in August. Points to take special notice to on this shoe are the painted mesh side panels and the fade / stipple effect on the flywire. Continue reading
The LeBron 9 has a tough job ahead, with all the hype around astounding colorways of its predecessor, the LeBron 8, particularly the “South Beach” colorway which ignited the shoe to infernal proportions. In a change of tradition, the LeBron 9 premier colorway has been switched from the China edition to the Pre-Heat edition, making the LeBron 9’s debut even more challenging. Though not done in the previous filament green / pink colorway, this combo is still hot like Miami in the dead of summer. It actually pays tribute to the Air Force base where the Heat conducted some camp training, the Cannon Air Force Base. While these shoes have already released overseas in the AP Market, the Domestic Market won’t have to wait much longer. A limited release in the Miami Locale is upon us, while others will have to wait for a broader release on November 12th. If your time is valuable and you rather trust “Chef” to secure your pair, then head on over to the AF1King Online Shop and pre-order a pair or scroll down after the jump. You will of course pay a premium for this guarantee, but consider it a small price to pay for peace of mind, best in class customer service, and a partnership with one of the biggest and longest running sneakerheads on the net Chef of GourmetKickz.
