This is the Nike Lebron IX (9) "WBF" (World Basketball Festival) edition which features a game royal, university gold, and midnight navy color way. These were released as a part of the "WBF Pack" last year in celebration of the World Basketball Festival sponsored by Nike with each pair sporting the Nike WBF logo. The festival is actually a tour of exhibition games prior to the start of the Summer Olympics in London. The 2012 World Basketball Festival began in London, UK, followed by a stop in Paris, France, continued to Washington, D.C., before concluding the tour with 2 games in Barcelona, Spain. The U.S. Men's Basketball gold medal team didn't hold back in exhibition play with dominant wins against Dominican Republic, Brazil, Great Britain, and Spain. The one close game was against a talented Argentina team led by Manu Ginobili but still a victory for the US Team. This Lebron 9 Low features a full 360 degree air unit and a fuse upper making it one of the lightest Lebrons ever. Most people don't realize how special this "WBF" edition actually is due to the special logo on the heel. Any fan of Lebron, USA Basketball, and the Nike Lebron signature line should add this pair to their collection.
