Nike Is Launching An Exclusive Line Of Lebron 9 Basketball Sneakers In China

Starting tomorrow, Nike will sell an exclusive edition of its Nike Zoom Air Lebron 9 basketball shoes in China (via Jing Daily).

The sneakers, dubbed the “Fire Lion” edition, are sky blue and covered in flames.

According to FreshnessMag.com, the fire-and-ice colour theme is “in reference to James’ explosive nature on the court and his team, the Miami Heat.”

The shoes also feature the Chinese character for “fire” embedded on the heel.

They’ll be sold at Nike stores throughout China, for $250 a pair.

But you don’t need to run to China to pick up the shoes—they’ll eventually retail in the U.S., says SneakerNews.com.
