Nike and Lebron James this week unveiled the superstar’s new signature shoes — the Lebron 9 “Cannon.” Apparently, according to the AP, they are inspired by the Air Force.
A design for Lebron James’ latest signature sneaker was inspired by the U.S. 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.
So, I’m going to guess the military influence is the green, not as obvious as what some other teams have done. Unless that bright orange is a nod to the always fashionable reflective belts.
