While LeBron James will certainly have the Championship Trophy on his mind when he and Miami Heat begin their quest in the Playoffs, he won’t be playing every game in Miami, will he? Accompanying the Nike LeBron 9 Elite ‘Home’ that we just kicked off is the obvious ‘Away’ colorway, which features a sturdy black base paired with the luxurious gold detailing. The upper is strengthened with a carbon fiber panel that spans the lateral outrigger to the heel, giving LeBron’s 240 lb. frame enough protection when he cuts, darts, and explodes off the hardwood and slams in a monstrous two. The ‘wing’ is also replaced by the lightweight and breathable mesh for decreased weight, and the other details like the visible Flywire and the Pro Combat-padded tongue and interior complete the ‘Elite’ appeal, awarding the LeBron 9 Elite the designation as the sexiest LeBron shoe ever created. Of course, ‘Home’ and ‘Away’ aren’t the only Elite colorways we can expect, because we did tease you a ‘South Beach’-like colorway not long ago. Continue reading for a complete look at the Nike LeBron 9 Elite ‘Away’ and mark your calendars for April 28th as that is the release date currently set by Nike.

i dont see whats so bad about 250. foams are 30 more dollars and js that are hard to find rape 250 but we still pay for them if we dont have it. i feel as tho a resell wont said in line for these shoes just to resell but a sneaker would get it if he really wants it regardless of price and hype or no hype.

I don't rock Lebrons, they're honestly not hot to me except the SB, so me paying $250 NEVERS!!! Jordan's.......yes no prob.

I understand a lot of you guys don't want to drop $250, and that's fair. But Nike used A LOT of carbon fiber on these things, along with kevlar. Those materials ain't cheap. So that's why the cost is so high. Plus, all of that gold detailing looks expensive and time-consuming to apply. So add all that up, and you have a hefty price tag.

Hated the 9 all season long, with the passion of a white-hot, burning flame. But these.......these.......could make me change my mind. Only thing that will never change my mind is that those greedy bastards want 250 bucks. STICK IT UP YOUR ASS NIKE!

With the lebron lows coming out in April and all the other heat droppin in 2012, I am going to have to pass....$250 for any shoe is crazy. I can understand $200 max because the carbon fiber and bla bla bla. Bottom line....Nike stop being greedy!

the price is high due to the technology incoporated into the shoe. the target market for this shoe wasn't sneakerheads but actuall basketball players who will put the shoe to use.

"poor" man's Watch The Thrones. But in all seriousness, these look pretty sick to ball in, but for what its worth I feel like you would have to be pretty legit to warrant the price tag.

awh crap that's really nice. i really didn't want to like it considering the ridiculous $250 price point. they should have mad the regular 9s look like this.

I'm not into the "exclusive" CW of the lebron line at all (I buy one to ball in and one for my display). Damn near every pair has been bought at below retail price (NDC clearance or Nike Outlet). These will be no different. That being said these look very nice.

Huge letdown. I had very high expectations for these, which was the only way sneakerheads woulda coughed up $250. The only people to cop will be hypebeasts and lebron ball-huggers

For $250 the colorway has to be on point for me to cop and this colorway is not worth $250.

these look NOTHING like the samples we've been seeing. Maybe the exposed flywire samples are 10's?

The problem again like the kobe's is the price tag. Shoe looks good, I'm intrested how it feels with that mesh like material.

Nice. The LJ9 looked a bit rushed to me, compared to the detail the 8s had. These look like a finished product.
