Last night, Miami's Shoe Gallery hosted a special meet-and-greet event with local artist Freegums, who was recently given an opportunity to apply his signature artistic style to the Nike LeBron 9. Freegums (Alvaro Ilizarbe) incorporated several prominent Miami staples into the pattern, as well as several notable LeBron cues. The pattern appears along the inner lining, as well as the outer white parts of the shoe in a tonal variation.
Following a limited release at last night's event, the Freegums x LeBron 9 will be made available in a wider capacity on December 31st. Sole Collector was in the building for the event, so keep it locked for a little more information, as well as some commentary from Freegums himself.
From a Artist stand point these kicks are dope by designed colorway. From a sneakerhead stand point i really am not a big fan of this Lebron 9 compared to the 8's. - Kix
