LeBron James continues to kill things in the world of Nike Basketball shoes with this all new purple-based colorway of the LeBron 9.

Imspired by LeBron’s first ever rec-team as a kid known as the Summit Lake Hornets, this latest release of the LeBron 9 dons a sweet purple-dominated color combination. Purple handles most of the upper on these bad boys, while aqua takes care of the Swoosh, tongue liner and midsole down below. White breaks up the otherwise bright look, taking care of the midsole splatter, 180 heel Air bag and outsole sitting down below.

The all new “Summit Lake Hornets” Nike LeBron 9 is now available for purchase from Eastbay.
