Over the years, LeBron James and Jay-Z have built a friendship like none other. When the LeBron VII released back in 2009, Nike Basketball treated Shawn Carter to an exclusive "All Black Everything" make-up. Two years later, Nike Basketball is celebrating Jay and 'Ye's "Watch The Throne" album with an exclusive colorway of the LeBron 9. Coincidently enough, the special edition colorway is revealed on the heels of the rap duo's WTT Tour stop in Miami.
Inspired by the hit record, they feature a predominantly black upper with metallic gold taking care of the Swoosh, tongue signature and midfoot harness. A Givenchy Resort 2012 floral print covers the laces and sockliner, along with a gold-engraved throne lace jewel and midsole speckle to complete the unique display.
The "Watch The Throne" Nike LeBron 9 is not currently scheduled for an official release. Be sure to stick with Sole Collector for further details.
