It’s been ten years since Nike debuted LeBron JamesLeBron 9, so to celebrate the anniversary Nike Basketball will be bringing back the LeBron 9 in 2021. Following up the return of the LeBron 7 in 2019 and the revival of the LeBron 8 in 2020, the LeBron 9’s comeback is bound to be an expansive one — and it’s kicking off with an all-new colorway dubbed “South Coast.”

Big, bold, boisterous and bright in the way so many of King James’ early 2010s releases were, the “South Coast” supplies a black upper that’s trimmed with bright blue and embellished with volt green on the Swooshes, lace detail and heel. Though this duo of secondary colors gives off some slight “Sprite” vibes, these are quickly offset by way of a tropical red and blue print on the collar lining. Down below, clear heel Air units and a patterned carbon fiber midfoot plate are surrounded by white EVA foam. Icy blue outsoles finalize the look.

The Nike LeBron 9 first saw on-court action during the lockout-shortened 2011-12 NBA season, during which LeBron captured his first title with the Miami Heat. Only time will tell how the 2021-22 NBA season will play out, but you’ll likely see the LeBron 9 on court along with the forthcoming LeBron 19 as King James chases another ring with the Los Angeles Lakers. A retail price and date of arrival should be made available in the coming weeks as well.
