Nike Basketball footwear designer and part time Facebook heartthrob Jason Petrie has news for all of you: He’s taken. The lead LeBron designer has a girlfriend and his favorite color is red.
Outside of those personal nuggets and more relevant to your digital existence, Petrie also breaks hearts in another way via his Nike Basketball Facebook chat today.
The Miami Vice-tinged LeBron 8 release marked a special time and makeup for last season but it won’t come back for an encore this year (nor next, loophole fans). So much like the current NBA season, the bright turquoise and pink “South Beach” combo everyone fell in love with over the last 12 months is on ice for the time being.
You can of course color up a thousand different variations of the LeBron 9 on NIKEiD soon. Just not in turquoise and pink.
