Back when Nike had first introduced the Player Exclusive “Summit Lake Hornets” iteration of the LeBron 9, sneakerheads had reacted very positively towards the colorway despite their inability to cop a pair. The only thing that had remotely ticked off a few sneakerheads was the sheer number of Nike LeBron PE renditions that they were being teased with at that time. Thus, it was definitely a surprise when Nike announced that the LeBron 9 “Summit Lake Hornets” PE would hit the shelves and now it seems the Swoosh is gearing up for the Nike sneakers release 2016 of another “Summit Lake Hornets” colorway.
Much like various LeBron PE versions had in the past, the LeBron 9 “Summit Lake Hornets” PE had also eventually arrived at retailers in limited numbers on March 31st, 2012 and sold for $170. It sports a Purple, Teal and White color scheme. This time around though, the model of choice is the Nike LeBron 13 and unfortunately for some collectors, specifically the male ones, it is a GS exclusive edition.
According to listing, the sneaker will indeed be GS-sized, while dressed up in a color scheme resembling that of the LeBron 9 “Summit Lake Hornets” PE. This LeBron 13 sports a nearly all-Black base, while the graphic print featured on the collar and rear end of this sneaker consist of Purple and Teal hues. Moreover, the Purple and Teal hues also cover the Nike Swoosh logo and the sneaker’s signature hyperposite overlays, but also appearing to be iridescent than the rest. Continuing the color scheme, the finishing touch has been added with a combination of a Black midsole and Blue outsole.
Since this is not a Player Exclusive, more than just limited numbers will be available once its Nike release 2016 takes place on January 28th. However, only the small-footed ladies and young girls, or even young boys, can look forward to getting their hands on a pair at a price of $160.
