Last year, before his first season with the Miami Heat, LeBron James participated in Heat training camp at a Florida Air Force base. In remembrance of that experience James and Nike have teamed up to produce a pair of kicks.
The LeBron James 9 ‘Cannon’ is the ninth version of James’ signature Nike sneaker. The original design is only available in South Florida, and the colors selected were meant to honor the Air Force.
Nike calls it “The Cannon” edition of the LeBron 9. The military-green theme is a nod to the Miami Heat having their first training camp since James joined the team last season at Hurlburt Field and Eglin Air Force Base. Those installations in Florida’s Panhandle hosted the Heat for about a week, and players interacted with military personnel during that camp.
The Nike LeBron 9 ‘Cannon’ will be sold retail for $170 and will be released to the public Sunday, Oct. 9th.
