The Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite is set for a debut on American soil this April 28th when the Black/Metallic Gold ‘Away’ joints officially hit stores at the stirring price-tag of $250. The discussion regarding the price of the sneaker has continued to be one of the more engaging topics among our readers, and with other figures floating around for a possible LeBron X release surpassing the $300 mark, those who employ a level of prudence with their cash flow have begun to ‘draw the line’, so to speak. While $250 might be a bit much to drop on a sneaker, others deem it a ‘no-brainer’ – particularly for the high-energy Wolf Grey/Mint Candy-New Green-Pink Flash release. Those won’t be available in the States until June 2nd, but Euro retailers have already begun to make them available (and some have sold out quickly, like Euro retailer Titolo. Will you cop these in June? Let us know your thoughts in the comments area below, and if you can’t resist anything remotely ‘South Beach’, you can cop one of the available pairs on eBay.
I paid a little over retail also and no lie these shits is super hot!!! I put them on and people just ask if they fake but I coped them from switzerland and no lie these are better than the big bangs and all!!!! In fact no lie I was in Floyd Mayweather gym and even Floyd himself asked me where I got them from...fuck all haters you work hard you play hard thats how I see it...if shoes is part of your game then go ahead and cope!!!.....people just mad they cant get them or not willing to stand inline....#sneakerhead!!
These are a really nice pair of sneakers, but the one thing that is making it ugly in my opinion is the price. Honestly NIKE y'all need to stop, 250 for some sneakers......that's just not right at all.
Personally, they are a nice shoe , I love shoes naturally ,but we gotta stop the way people go on eBay and jack up the prices 2x harder... & let's not forget Lebron hasn't yet won his first ring!.. Not hating on Lebron at all.
Not worth the price? ... Quality wise totally, 250$ should create the ultimate shoe lol but as far as what the " kick game" is today these are worth more and that is what the kick game has been based on, love for shoes. M oney cant buy love but realistically the more you like/ live the shoe the more you are willing to spend. IMO I like em actually got a preorder from some spot in Europe 500, that's love and I'm not obsessed im committed.
the shoes are not sick.... sneakerheads are really sick cannot get out of the addiction.... first the resellers 2nd retailers now manufacturers shooting up the prices... wow i had enough with this shoe game no freedom at all always get stuck with the hype...
These are gorgeous if ima pay 200+ for sneakers other then Foams then these would be it. It's not worth the money if your buying them because everyone else is. If you gone wear em then buy. But this colorway is a home run though. NICE!!! NO HYPE!!! JUS LOVE SNEAKERS!!!!
The shoe itself is built like a brick shithouse you can tell..hence the 250 price hike for side graphite shank plate etc. etc.....my take is if you buy em wear them bitches..the sooner we remove the flippers from the shoe game..the sooner nike will realize there's no aftermarket. I'm 28 and been buyin js since I was in middle school. The saddest part is that we've got dudes standin right next to me in line just waitin there to flip em cuz their mickey ds ain't payin enough. Use the extra 250 towards an education and stop makin ebay your career bitches then the 250 might seem more reasonable than 700.
$250.....ya'll can have this shit Nike getting ridiculous with these prices and the only reason they get away with it is because people still buy the shoe regardless of the price, come on $250 after tax thats damn near $300 bucks for one shoe.......thats crazy....no autograph, t-shirt, nothing just the shoes!!!!
But I really can't blame Nike for jacking up the price on their most "H Y P E D" shoe because think about all the people who are making profit re-selling these Nike releases at bogus ass prices on eBay and in return look how much eBay is making off of Nike products. So all Nike is doing is selling their product at a RE-SELL value instead of a RETAIL VALUE!!!!!!!!! An that people is how RE-SELLERS have officially F***d UP the SNEAKER GAME!
HONESTLY FOLLOW ME @DJBLUEMONEY ON INSTAGRAM AND TWITTER THAT's FIRST OFF SECOND OFF THESE ARE A NICE COLORWAY $250 IS NOT TOO HIGH FOR A SHOE IF YOU WORK AND CAN AFFORD TO BUY THIS SHOE AND STILL HANDLE YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES BY ALL MEANS YOU ARE ENTITLES TO BUY WHATEVA SHOE YOU WANT IM TIRED OF PEOPLE BITCHING ABOUT THE PRICE BEING TO HIGH IF YOU LIKE THEM BUY THEM IF NOT STFU
Not resellers... it's the limited qty that are being produced. Blame it on the manufacturer and their price points. Haven't you ever heard "It's WORTH whatever someone is willing to pay for it"... There would be no reseller market if people weren't spending twice over retail. Resellers are just taking advantage of it. Nothing wrong with that. Make that money.
No theyre not. Nike specifically made these $250 to see if people will buy them and so they can make the price on everything else higher. Sooooooooo, with that being said, RIP to the shoe game after this release.
no its not really worth the price. they're JUST SHOES. ppl taking shoes way too seriously its a joke. priorities have been forsaken for the sake of gaining the next man's approval bc of what's on his feet. how about people spend their $250.00+tax on a couple books that will be more constructive to their future than these.
you act like you own every damn pair of shoes ever made and that your right about it all but really your a stuck up cocky prick who is spoiled by your momy and dady! and after you keep buying shoes for $250+ i hope you end up broke as hell and living in a dumpster with no shoes and just socks on your ugly ass feet! you obviously dont know how to spend your money or what a good pair of shoes are but yea sure they look good but they are shoes made to ball!
sites that started hyping up shoes are the one that eff'd up the sneaker game, if it wasn't for them making every shoe seem like the "most anticipated" of the years and sneakerheads are dying to get their hands on a pair re-sellers wouldn't even exist.
First of all if you have 10 pairs of Concords I would think that you could spell the show right. And second who in ther right mind would buy them for $900 when you can get them for $359 and down. Do us all a favor and never come back to this website.
Ppl always screaming about "priorities" .... But what if collecting sneakers IS a priority for someone!? ... Who's to determine the next mans list of essentials!? Not me! .... Idgaf what the next person spends their money on, as long as they aren't askin me for anything! If you feel confident that you'll have a roof over your head & food in your belly on Sunday, why not cop kicks on Saturday? ... & this is SNEAKER NEWS ... Why wouldn't ppl "take shoes serious" here?
people are spending $1500 + on pocket books, prada sneakers and other material items that
aren't even as confortable as these, $250 for your feet, your on your feet all day, great investment, nice sneaker, cool colorway..must cop
Me too man, majoring in Electrical Engineering. Work for everything I get and Idk bout that puma and new balances but AF1's for sure until I graduate if the prices continue to spike up because of this new sneaker trend.
