Miami is One of Three Universities to Debut LEBRON 9s
Oct. 14, 2011
BEAVERTON, Ore. – The University of Miami will be one of three university basketball teams to hit the court on October 14 in their own colorways of the new LEBRON 9.
The Hurricanes will play in white/white/gorge green/total orange this season while the Kentucky Wildcats will don a version in varsity royal/white/black and The Ohio State Buckeyes will lace up a sport red/white/wolf grey edition.
Miami’s colorway shoe will be available at retail on November 29.
Previously, a China-specific colorway hit retail in that region on October 1, and the limited edition “Cannon” debuted on October 8. Other LEBRON 9 colorways will launch at key moments throughout the year.
Light yet powerful, like its namesake, LeBron James — and designed in conjunction with his insight — the LEBRON 9 is the first shoe to integrate Flywire technology and Hyperfuse construction in the upper for superior support. The shoe also combines Max Air 180 and a Nike Zoom unit for comfort and responsiveness.
