With the release of the LeBron 9 Low, Nike kicked off the retro circuit by releasing one of the most sought-after samples from the pinnacle of Nike LeBron frenzy. That’d be the “LeBronold Palmer” hue, which was inspired by LeBron’s love of the Arnold Palmer cocktail and adorned with a floral/tropical blend. Nike is now focusing on completely new hues, albeit this one is linked to an OG release from a decade ago.
The Liverpool FC colors inspired the LeBron 9 Low
The red and green combination was first released in the summer of 2012 to commemorate LeBron James’ part-ownership of the storied football team. Nike has totally reversed the colors, with the New Green serving as the main color and the Action Red serving as an accent color on the Swoosh, lace lock-down flap, and outsole. The outsole, as well as the badge on the heel, features Liverpool F.C. marks visible through the translucent sole.
In other words, the Lebron 9 Low “Reverse Liverpool” is like a high-performance car like a Ferrari. You might not think they are naturally pretty, but that’s because their beauty comes from how they perform. These shoes are as good as a Ferrari when it comes to basketball shoes.
