The special-edition Nike Lebron 9 was inspired by Givenchy‘s designs under Riccardo Tisci and are dressed in black Hyperfuse mesh and faux-carbon weave with gold hits on the lateral swooshes, upper eyelet panels, tongue lettering, and metallic Lebron Soldier plaques on the heels. Floral prints on the sock liner and laces, accompanied by a stylized gold lace lock, pay homage to the Watch the Throne album artwork designed by Tisci. Below, a gold speckled midsole, Air unit, and icy blue outsoles complete the commemorative basketball pairs.
The Nike Lebron 9 “Watch The Throne” is set to release on January 6 at 10 a.m. EDT via SNKRS and select retailers for $230 USD.
