Plenty of sneakerheads out in Europe are no doubt relishing their latest chance to cop early, with the Nike LeBron 9 Elite ‘South Beach’ showing up across the pond before any of us stateside folks are able to lace them up. That is unless of course you are a platinum selling rap star with a long standing sneaker fetish and apparently plenty of connections out in Beaverton. Fabolous showed off his early footwork this weekend while rocking the stage, lacing up in this Nike LeBron 9 Elite that the rest of us won’t get a chance at until June. Click through for some extra angles and let us know if you’ll be slapping down the $250 when these hit retail. Photos:NT/Lisa Peezy
I need these! Man I love fab no homo, I remember him rockin white af1s in the "I can't let you go" video with a Jacob the jewler watch and a throwback jersey, that was 2003 n I was 14 then I went out and copped a throwback, white af1s and a fake jacob watch @ 14 years old.. TRUE STORY loll
A rapper with early kicks, how original. And dressed all in dark black clothes, then some bright kicks... looks real bad. Like you just wacked on some hype kicks for the sake of them being hype, think about it and step yo freshness up. Plus pink on your kicks is pretty gay anyway.
I actually paid $644 for my first pair, but they gonna arrive this week, WAY before June 2nd. I'll cop probably 2 more pairs at retail though.
people comments be dumb as hell....anyways elite nines look better than reg. 9's all day. 250 and camp time, i hope its worth it. because i never cop from resellers if i miss it f*ck it oh well
what does owning a pair have to do with voicing an opinion you hypebeast? but since you wanna be a fag (and i own a pair) alright then the original south beaches look wayyy better. you can't reply unless your broke ass can afford a pair either
only thing hotter than these is the Yeezy 2, and I'm not seeing those for sale yet. So I'm at max heat capacity.
both of you are such big idiots, how are you going to pay that much for a pair of shitty quality shoes that dont do anything but make 17 year old boys check out your feet. LOSERS!!
thats the right attitude. i see people talk shit about resellers and yet they still buy from them. they are the reason why resellers exist. pathetic hypocrites i hope resellers take all your money.
I got em... ha, obviously, but I wouldn't say that the 8 is the clear cut winner. Most people just say that because they hating on the new heat that's coming. I got my pair after they released originally in Miami, so I didn't have to pay 1500 like you gotta nowadays, so I been had this heat since day 1.
lebrons are made pretty well there pal... id rather spend money on lebrons over js just because of the quality but im primarily a Jordan head so calm down people.
