Stalley recently flossed his Home and Away digs of the Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite, so the question is: Will you rock ‘em on the 4/28 release date? With the matte black finish and the metallic gold foil accents, the ‘Away’ Elite look right out of an Egyptian tomb, emanating that sense of ancient royalty thanks to the regal colorway and authoritative design. $250 is certainly a big price increase from the LeBron 9 (roughly a 50% increase), but are you willing to overlook that on release date? Peep these new photos below and let us know what your plans are for the LeBron 9 P.S. Elite. Photos via a-knight

I like the look because it has huarache look, but the price is too high. I say nobody cop them and send message to Nike that we want high quality product, but not at the price point they are trying to sell us at. I'd go for these if they were $180 and the regular Lebron 9s were $160. Less air, but more money? That arch makes me not able to wear it with my flat feet.
It the fit still going to be the same or are they working something out to where they are true to size
So what is the exact release date on these Elites? Nice Kicks is listing the release date as April 20th, but Sneakernews says April 28th? Who's right?
this is the year of black and gold these shits dont look crazy to u guys now but watch in 3 months ur gonna be like why the fuck i didnt cop
Im Gone Get Them When They Drop Nobody In My Area Will Buy These For Retail So Im Gone Get Them Later
yeah this black and gold thing reminds me way to much of the BHM collection but i can tell u now some of the very artistic people on here are gonna be making "watch the throne" customs out of these
If you actually know what the price is for carbon fiber, you'd understand. Is $250 expensive, hell yes. But Carbon Fiber went up in value when the War on Terror started because the were using carbon fiber un the unmanned aircrafts for it's strength and lightweight. The government actually was buying up most if the carbon fiber stuff. I got into a car accident and it was very hard to find a replacement hood for my car and when we asked the companies why, that was the answer we got...
these look better than the regular lebron 9's tbh but nike diggin in pockets hard ......so no cop :(
you can't tell that its real carbon fiber based on the pics, that checkered pattern is just a cliche thats been associated with carbon fiber in the past. Thats not what carbon fiber ACTUALLY looks like, just what gets common folk to purchase it
That may be true but I guarantee this shoe didn't cost more than $40 in labor and materials. It does look to be of high quality and I really like the shoe but if it's $250 retail and I'm sure it's going to be limited, imagine what the resellers are going to do. The sneaker game is slowly dying
Yeah... it is. You can clearly see it in a couple of the images. Sorry, I'm just saying that is why. Not trying too be a smart @ss.
