Yesterday seemed to be LeBron 9 day as the “Dunkmans”, “Swingmans” and “Mangos” hit retailers in droves. While the “Swingmans” definitely piqued my interest, I think I may wait and save my duckets for the “Summit Lake Hornets” colorway dropping on March 31st. These babies are candy-painted goodness. I imagine these will be a pretty wide release, but who knows with the way Nike’s been handling things the last month or so.
I dug the SLH 7’s but this may surpass them. Not only do the teal midsoles and white speckles highlight the purple Now-and-Later flavor, but the Hornet on the back can make it look like I’m a supporter of the local NBA squad. I haven’t gotten my hands on any LBJ9’s – I’m still enjoying the 8’s so damn much – but these might change that.
