The Nike LeBron 9 ‘Watch The Throne’ was produced by Nike Basketball in 2011. Only a limited amount of pairs were given to select individuals and was created for Kanye West and Jay-Z’s tour and their collaborative album, Watch The Throne.
Never released to the public, although many wished they had through the years. Whenever a pair hits the market, usually via auction, they go for an absurd amount of money. For fans of the pair, it looks like Nike may bless us with a retail release that could take place either in late 2021 or early 2022.
This Nike LeBron 9 features Black mesh and faux carbon weave on the uppers while Metallic Gold adorns the Swoosh logos. It also features a Givenchy-like pattern on the liner and laces as well as the classic lace lock.
