Nike is gearing up for the global launch of its new LeBron 9 Low, which has always been a fan favorite. The upcoming “LeBronold Palmer” LeBron 9 Low pays homage to the King James era with the Miami Sun, which is topped with a tropical vibe covering the uppers.
On May 5, 2022, the SNKRS app revealed the official release date for the highly anticipated “LeBronold Palmer” silhouettes. These pairs will arrive on the SNKRS app and select physical stores on Thursday, May 19. You can spice up your wardrobe with these shoes for $200.
The Nike LeBron 9 “LeBronold Palmer” are perfect for beachwear
These kicks, along with the special-edition “Reverse LeBronold Palmer,” first appeared in 2012, but they were never released to the public on LeBron 9 Low’s first run.
Now, this model’s 2022 colorway has finally surfaced, featuring a White Lime, Bright Mango and New Green color scheme. The pair has a lemon yellow base with rhythmic teal and orange accents, with the floral print serving as the centerpiece.
These playful pairs are adorned with premium mesh uppers and can perfectly complement your weekend getaway. Teal laces on the tongues are used to embellish the upper. The swooshes are positioned on the medial sides in orange.
Here, the epithet “LeBronold Palmer” refers to Arnold Palmer’s favorite drink. The drink, which was a half lemonade and half iced tea drink mix, was popularized by the golf genius himself. The Palmer’s drink is well showcased on the soles of these exclusive pairs.
To complete the aesthetic, an orange colored 360-Max Air unit is used along with a semi-translucent sole unit.
What else is Nike’s LeBron lineup introduced in 2022?
Nike recently added a brand new palette to their LeBron 19 line called “King’s Crown”, which refers to the design of the crown placed on the heels.
In this colorway, the LeBron 19 featured Siren Red and Laser Blue color blocking, along with “King’s Crown” insignia on the heels. It has been designed with a synthetic textile upper and molded TPU reinforcements on the medial side and heel tab. The blue laces running over the red tongue seem like an interesting idea.
Throughout there are juxtaposition features such as the King James crown motif above the tongue and integrated Flywire cables for a secure fit. The design has been finished with a transparent Zoom Air unit attached to the front, alongside dual-chambered Max Air under the heel and a blue rubber outsole.
The ‘King’s Crown’ kicks were launched worldwide on May 10. These color-blocked silhouettes are available on Nike’s online store as well as at select retailers.
