Nike Basketball Celebrates Watch the Throne Tour With Launch Of Lebron 9 Sneakers

In its pursoot to promote arguably the biggest tour of the year, Nike has released this customized pair of shoe. Lebron James’ latest signature shoe, the Lebron 9s, has decided to pay homage to the Watch The Throne tour that just passed through Miami with this new model.

The Nike Lebron 9 “Watch The Throne” features a predominately black upper, a gold swoosh with matching accents, vibrant laces and lining reminiscent of the colors used in the WTT artwork created by famed designer Riccardo Tisci. The shoe rest on a clean blue sole and boast a massive spiked out jewel that sits just below the tongue at the center of the shoe. This lavish sneaker boasts the utmost bravado and is clearly worthy of the WTT moniker.

Jay-Z and Lebron James are no stranger to cross-promotion.
