The New Lebron 9 Kentucky

It's here! The new LeBron 9 has dropped. The first colorway to grace our presence is a Black/Red/White colorway and it has arrived at a few online retailers. You can officially open the flood gates because there are plenty more colorways that will be dropping, and dropping soon. The most anticipated basketball shoe of the fourth quarter of 2011 has arrived.

In addition to the original colorway of Black and Red that has dropped, the new Lebron 9 "Kentucky" has made it's way to the online market. This new colorway features a predominately black upper. Kentucky's royal blue is used throughout the upper and accents the shoe perfectly.The upper uses both Nike Hyperfuse and Flywire. The midsole uses both black and royal blue. White is used to finish off the shoe on the Swoosh and outsole. This shoe will obviously be rocked by the members of the Kentucky Wildcat basketball team. But, because it is a general release, you can rock it too.

The new LeBron 9 uses the most innovative, high performance technology that Nike has to offer. Both the game-changing technologies that are Nike Hyperfuse and Flywire are used on the upper of King James' new shoe. It is the first time that Nike has used both of these high performance technologies on one shoe. The Hyperfuse is seen on the shoe as a woven like material and allows for maximum breathability while the Flywire provides ultimate stability and support. Both of these technologies allow for an extremely lightweight ride in a basketball shoe. In addition, the new LeBron 9 offers a cushioning system to allow for maximum impact protection that is second to none. This is done by placing a Nike Max Air 180 unit in heel portion of the shoe. 

It only makes sense that Kentucky and it's colors would be used on one of  King James' shoes. How many times have we seen LeBron courtside in Rupp Arena? More than a few. It is appparent that there is some sort of connection between James and the University. Kentucky, however, is not the only school that will be blessed with their very own colorway of this shoe. Miami and Ohio State themed colorways have already been spotted. Expect those two and perhaps others to make their way to online retailers in the next month.

The new LeBron 9 has arrived. It has arrived in a couple of colorways. For now. Images of  many more colorways have already been seen. This is just the beginning of a long run for the flagship model of the Lebron signature sneaker line of shoe.
