Darn Nike they really sure know how to upset “sneakerheads” these days. Having Lebron and Kevin Durant, their two biggest basketball athletes, post up samples that’ll never see the light of day in sneaker store shelves across America. The next option for those sneakerheads are customizers if you haven’t figured that out yet. Taking inspiration from the “tennis ball” Lebron 9 Elite that KingJames posted online Twizz Customs brightened up the Lebron 9 Elite in white and black in this “US Open” customization.
Starting with painting the majority of the white upper. The Hyperfuse panels and midsole were made neon yellow or as Nike calls it “Volt” along with a darker shade on the Flywire mesh areas and midsole speckle. One could say stopping there is fine, but since they are a custom Twizz covered up the previously metallic gold Swooshes on the medial panels with that of tennis ball felt. As of now these are a 1 of 1 design.
