The New Lebron 9 Scarface

Now this is what makes being a sneakerhead fun! One of the new LeBron 9's that is going to be released has been dubbed "Scarface". That's right. As in Al Pacino as Scarface. How cool is that? As sneakerheads, we definitely live in the golden age of basketball kicks. Every new sneaker that is dropped seems to now have a title. Miami Night, Grinch, Dark Knight,and South Beach are all titles we have seen on Nike shoes for basketball that have dropped recently. Of course, I could keep going but the list is endless. It didn't used to be like this people. I can still vividly remember the days of sneaker drops in black and white colorways only that certainly didn't have a cool title. My how the times have change.

The Lebron 9 "Scarface" uses both white and black on it's upper. An upper that for the first time on a Nike shoe, features both Flywire and Hyperfuse technologies. The forefoot portion of the shoe is white and accents the Flywire very nicely in red. The rear portion of the upper is black and uses a white Swoosh. The upper portion of the midsole is black while the lower portion uses red and contains the Nike Air unit. This color scheme reflects not only the advertising for the movie but also represents the Heat very well.

Unlike the Kobe Bryant signature sneaker line, King James and his signature sneakers are going forth and multiplying. Already we have seen several colorways of the new LeBron 9. A LeBron 9 that has yet to see a single release. In addition, to Lebron's signature sneaker, his "Soldier", "Ambassador" and V/2 series are all looking like they will be making appearances very soon. As you can see, Lebron's shoe line is working very hard. King James has also worked very hard in the promotion of these shoes. He and Nike shoe designer Jason Petrie have spent a lot of time abroad promoting his new shoe. Most of his time lately has been spent in China. Let's just hope Lebron is doing the same during this off season. He needs to finally get an NBA Finals Championship Ring. That way his new LeBron 9 can drop in a beautiful metallic gold colorway.

We can expect to see more themed colorways from the new Lebron 9. It seems as if this shoe is filling the void left empty by the Kobe VI and VII. That is a good thing. This shoe gives me a reason to cop a pair and throw a copy of the newly released Blu-ray edition of "Scarface" in my PS3. Life is good!
