Via Beer Mug Sports:

LeBron James hit Twitter on Tuesday night to unveil his new Nike Lebron 9 lows in a new color scheme dubbed "Lebronald Palmer" by the 2012 NBA Finals MVP.

Like the 7-time major championship winning golf legend who's known for combining lemonade and iced tea, the sneaker has a combo of its own, combining leisure and technology with a palm tree-printed upper and Max Air in the sole.

Teal/Pink-colored LeBrons have been a hit since his "South Beach 8's" came out in 2010. The "South Beach 9's" followed as another sought after colorway for sneakerheads and LeBron fans. So the "LebRonald Palmers" could be next in line to continue the trend.

  • These are the most ugliest pair of sneaker ever, what was NIKE thinking
  • Those shoes go beyond ugly.
  • These will be $500+ on ebay before you know it
  • These are feces
  • Looks like he threw up on them after all that partying.
  • I like em! I wouldn't wear em because I probably could't afford them unless I got a free pair, but it sure looks like what someone would wear in south Florida to me! Bet their gonna be a high ticket item for sure. Mark my words...all the kids who like LeBron are gonna be wearing them before the season starts. The moral of the story is: The rich get richer and Nike will make tons of $$$.
  • those are some cool shoes i would love to buy a pair soon as i get the chance imma get me a pair maybe two types so yall hatters get off lebron
