The obsessive desire to capitalize on detail and design has resulted in footwear products that give its marquee athletes clear advantages in performance and output, but trust us – it’s all legal. Today, Nike introduces the Nike Basketball Elite Series – a trio of supercharged and juiced up Nike Basketball models solidified with proven design function and engineering. Here we have a first look at the Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite in ┬áthe ‘Home’ colorway; carbon fiber is the primary upgrade in build for the mid-foot shanks and heel counters, allowing the shoes to be even lighter and more responsive, with the LeBron 9 in particular utilizing a carbon fiber piece that flows from the heel all the way to the wing.

The collar is also fortified with strategically placed Nike Pro Combat-inpsired padding. The Nike Basketball Elite Series in both the ‘Home’ and ‘Away’ versions are anchored by gold detailing, inspired by the championship trophy and the highest level of success. The Elite Series includes the LeBron 9, Kobe VII, and Zoom Hyperdunk and will be available on April 28th, so continue reading for a first look at the Nike LeBron 9 Elite ‘Home’ and stay tuned for more coverage on the Nike Elite Collection.

$250 and only cost them $15 to make them in China.Just to buy to Buy is whack.I only wear certain Jordans Cause the bring back great childhood Memories remeber the guy actually played for all you Baby's out here..If I recop it's because my ORIGINALS got wore out somthing 98% of all So called sneaker heads,resellers and hypsters will never ever be able to say they had.He is the G.O.A.T .Lebron will never be and you Dumbasses Kanye never played ...What true to being a sneakerhead is wearing whats hot to you not going off everyone else's wants or hype.And truly to me there are only about 8 Jordans worth wearing.After those I think his design team was high really sit back and look Some of them are way over done

I like em, I mean I really like em! BUT FUCK THAT. Gas prices keep going up, they need to break us off w/a recession shoe package or something!

The price is high, but I really like the way it looks and the technology applied. I hope I can get it for retail price, or at least not higher than $300.

Incase yall didnt know Nike said there NOT releasing another south beach colorway so unless these come on ID(doubtful) you wont get them unless you try to get these and custom them but on anothe note these are dope if i get the chance i woud get them to ball in

South beach colourway?? i've seen them, and they look more like the marty mcfly hyperdunks ;) :)

If yall think about it this shit looks just like the Penny 5's... The high ass ankle support and the curvy design going down the foot... this shit look just like da Penny's just in white and a few minor exterior design element changes like da ridges on da heel.... Either way... im on the fence bout deez... I want da Summit Lakes but unless deez come in more compelling colorways this will not be in my closet... im not paying for performance cuz im not gon ball in em so the best looking colorway will win and this 1 is lacking

Funny thing is u guys rather pay $250 for a pair of XI with half assed quality then pay $250 for a shoe that actually has up to date Nike technology and has quality materials. I don't get it. Or better yet ya quick to go drop $250 on the yezzy 2! Lol

i will annoy you
i will annoy you

@TENDEROCK
@TENDEROCK

Go ahead and Refuse all you want, NIKE doesn't care. They know people going to buy the shoes no matter the cost & i doubt I'll see these on clearance racks, especially with this "sneaker craze" that's going on.

way better than the black pair imo. that gold flywire is killin it tho

Man it took a while for the 9's to grow on me, and that was only after a few clean color ways. But this version just seems like a huge step down in style. I'm sure the performance is great but 'Bron's shoes have always been about equal performance and style. I agree w cheesePOOF, damn shame if he wins a ring in these eye sores.

These will sell out instantly. If idiots will buy $170 lebrons for $220+, why wouldn't they buy $250 lebrons for $250? The one good thing is the middle man (re-seller) will be left out in most cases now. Personally, I'd rather have the Freegums right now (on sale)!

These are definitely a nice upgrade, but Nike needs to go somewhere with that $250 price tag. Sorry, but the sum total of the upgrades DO NOT warrant a $80 price hike.

Now to me... these are muuuuch better appealin then da standard lbj 9s... but these are not worth 250. 200 max... but in my opinion these is wat da 9s should of came out in da 1st place

Dude, these are high end prostitutes. Do your thing, and it feels good for a while. Then you move on to the next best thing. All the while when they mined out every nugget of gold from your pockets.

I thought there was another elite? On a different post it showed the box but the colorway description is totally different that this. But either way this shoe is dope, haven't brought any lebrons so I might cop these

I think that was just a teaser for another color to come out in the lebron 9 elite. Probably after the season and shit.
