The Nike Zoom LeBron Ambassador IX Gets New Colorways

I called the LeBron Ambassador 9 one of Nike’s top performance shoes this year, and it’s still only March (check the performance review). Anxious for more colorways? Look no further.

The shoe features a full mesh breathable upper with fuse overlays in high wear areas and the reflective 2 and 3 on the tongue of the shoe for LBJ. The outsole utilizes a strategic diamond grid grip pattern on XDR rubber. You also have an external rubberized heel counter for proper lockdown and stability. And of course, last but not least, the shoe actually features a forefoot and heel Zoom Air cushioning setup.

We’re still surprised that this shoe hasn’t been released Stateside — probably because this shoe would outperform all the signature models on the roster right now.

The LeBron Ambassador IX has been readily available for quite some time, and more colorways like the new USA colorway, Royal Blue, and Kay Yow (Breast Cancer Awareness) have just released overseas at ID4Shoes. These court beasts are reasonably priced at $130, so grab them while you can.

What do you think of the Ambassador IX? Do you dig the new colorways? Are you interested in copping a pair to play in yourself? Let us know in the comments.

  1. Heel and forefoot zoom plus xdr for 130. That’s a pretty good deal. I like the look of these better than the 13s.

  2. I really should hunt these down. I’m always complaining about outsoles not being outdoor-worthy, and here’s an outdoor shoe with all the bells and whistles you could want(well, except boost, but they can’t do anything about that).

  3. Hey! Is id4shoes really legit and sell 100% authentic shoes? I really want to get a pair so badly! Almost all the feedback are great but quite a few saying otherwise i.e. fakes haha. Wondering if you could give your thought on this matter! Thank you!

    1. Elias…we’ve only post stuff that is legit and authentic. You should know this by now from WearTesters. You should know we don’t post any fakes or even make WearTest videos out of fakes for that matter.

      1. Sorry man, don’t get me wrong please. Yeah of course there no fakes here! I did not know where you actually bought them. Until I read it again and another review. My bad. So sorry. I thought if there are any seller available. But it is good to know that id4shoes is legit! Again sorry and thanks for your help! Really appreciate it! Honestly, the review of the Lebron Ambassador 9 was the reason I wanna get the pairs, especially in the Kay Yow’s colorway but did not know where to get them though. Glad to hear that!
