April 28th is shaping up to be the biggest day for basketball and its sneakers since the NBA All-Star weekend and its infamous ‘Galaxy’ releases, as the league begins its postseason schedule and Nike Basketball readies an impressive new array of performance models for its top-notch title chasers. The Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite will release in ‘Away’ and the above pictured ‘Home’ colorways on that day, and given that the Association typically rolls out roughly half the playoff series’ on that first Saturday, it’s quite possible that you’ll have yours before LeBron wears them in a game. But with the ‘Away’ edition also dropping that same day, as well as the Zoom Kobe VII Elites and Hyperdunk 2011 Elites, which ones do you plan to purchase? Let us know after you check out a new set of photos below and stick with Sneaker News for updates as we approach next Saturday’s drop at select retailers like Mr. R. Photos: ITSB

For 250$ I'll pass .. That's more than half a paycheck for a working man ..I don't got a million-dollar-a-year contract let alone a "contract" .. The F** they thinking
I hope these sit so I can get them on clearance we should all boycott and make them go on clearance to show we aint down to be played out for 250 dollars on a pair of kicks
I hate to tell you guys this but this sneaker will not sit on shelves like you think. They will sell very quickly.
most of you guys say that you're passing... won't. for the very few that do pass, you will be jealous of the others who do cop, and you'll regret passing... lezbihonest here..
Gosh Nike just keeps luring every1 in I mean Adidas could never do this crap with a d rose shoe its ridiculous! I love these shoes but $250 just kills me I might as well get 2 pairs of KD's playoffs I bet they'll b half as much... And this crap about the shoe being "higher performance" is such a lie it looks cooler but heavier at the same time... I'll stick to kd4 for now
I'm liking this CW more and more those soles set this shoe off! But I don't want to cave to a $250 shoe. We'll see.
HOLY SHYET!!!! gotta have this. Way way way much better than those camping-out Yeezys. And no way to look like Kanye...awfully horrible looking like his brother Wale. Both don't know how to tie shoes & they are already in their 30's. Mental disability alert here.
good looking shoe better looking than the regular 9, the regular 9 looked too much like a damn timberland boot, but for 250 no thanks
The colors hype up the South Beach version. These shits right here might be better by an inch......clean
These are a go for me. Not a release day purchase, but I'll quietly pick these up while everyone else is beasting over the "South Beach" colorway.
these elites are a bigger gamechanger for nike than the b.s.twitter rsvp system which is actually old news. 30% price increase midway through product cycle is a big shift. $300 releases likely in the next 6-12 months.
On that logic you could also buy 6 pairs of Under Armour, or 12 pairs of flip flops... for the same price!! As an example, would you buy a $250 shoe that cost $200 to make, or a $125 shoe that cost $30 to make? Quality is what quality does.
that would look dope.....but i bet you they would go for 220$.....nobody wants to spent 220$ for some low tops..........
Nobody wants to spend $273(including tax) for these joints! I hope every who wants them get them but i rather spend $270 + on another shoe.
