Nike LeBron 9 Elite ‘Away’
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.
Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite
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 like them they go but 250 thats rape my dude you must be out your damn mind lebron foams dont even cost that much retail soo t(-_-t) to these moe
when i look at these, i dont see $250, i dont even see $200. the shoe is dope, dont get me wrong. but not that dope. Just a V2 IMO.
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!
All of you kids complaining about price hahaha if you people actually got around and made friends with people you would have hook ups. Im getting the away and the home for $260
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.
Shoe looks damn good, better than expected and Way better than the p.s. 8 I'm digging these but idk if I'll cop a gold shoe for 250 and the Olympic pack is dropping in the near future...sneaker head dellima's
"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
They look like the watch da throne 9s a lil bit... love da combat paddin on da shoes. Make they last longer of u hoop in them alot.... but 250??? 200 max Nike... So not coppin any of these even tho i like them much better then da standard lbj 9
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.
dont be stupid shoes only cost 10 bucks max to make since they buy these materials in bulk . Go head and make me richer
But u gotta understand, there are muuuuuch morw people out here to wear their kicks fa show them play... these are witout probably da best hoopin shoe out here but doesnt matter wat kinda matierals u add to a basketball shoes dat makes then worth 250+. Espc if there is now diamonds in them lol... does it cost more to put carbon fiber & gold flywire to a shoe, yea... but da shoe STILL cost less then 25 bucks to make & u want an extra 60 to 75 bucks more fa products dat should of been made & distributed to da public in da 1st place. Now u give out da REAL finished version of da lebron, kobe & hyperdunks shoes & u call them elite & hike dat price up like a high end vegas whore
Honestly I really don't think they had to do anything with lebron at all, I think a picture got leaked and sneaker sites just started jumping to conclusions, because they were obviously samples of the Lunar Hyperdunk 2012.
hell yea 250 i better get some sucky sucky with that purchase cot damn but on the real what makes these that much more elite for that price tag than the original
When demand outweighs supply, there is an increase in prices; Prepare for it , b/c as long as these "trendy hipsters" perpetrate as sneaker-heads everything will go up.
Words spoken like a real sneaker head! there tryna tear our shoe economy down like America's... Salute to you for making a valid point I didn't even think of.
