The Miami Heat recently held their first training camp since superstar LeBron James joined the team last season at the Hurlburt Field and Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. As a nod to the military, James has modeled his latest shoes, Nike’s “The Cannon” edition of the LeBron 9, with a militant flair.
The training camp was held for about a week in Florida’s Panhandle, during which the players interacted with the military personnel during the camp. The shoes feature a military green color scheme with bright orange soles and laces, yellow Nike swoosh, and other militaristic detailing.
The new sneakers were debuted at midnight on Sunday, Oct. 9 exclusively in South Florida as “a sign of appreciation and respect for LeBron’s South Florida fans and community.” The shoes retail for $170.
