Celebrity Feet: Jay-Z – Nike LeBron 9 Elite ‘South Beach’
Turns out Fab isn’t the only Brooklyn boy with an early line on Nike’s LeBron 9 Elite releases, and to be honest this sneaker sighting shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise given how close Jigga and King James have kept things over the years. Jay-Z showed up at the last Nets game of the season taking his sneaker game to ‘South Beach’ right before the Nets take their talent to BK. Hit the jump for the full photos of Jay-Z in the Nike LeBron 9 Elite ‘South Beach’ and let us know in the comments below if you’re feeling his recent LeBron 9 selection. Photos: ESPN
This is a classic marketing scheme!! Jay wears the shoes and assists the Lebron brand in forming it's lane in the sneaker world. Just like he did with the $10 bottles of Ace of Spade champagne. The use of celebrity status!! Not the first and won't be the last!!!

I know I would!!! I would just hate to be the guy sitting next to J at a game wearing some whak ass shoes and have him show up and sit next to me. You know your weak ass shoes would be all over sites like this!!!lol. ______________________________________ Do you know how stupid you sound? No really, Do you?
What the hell, my 9 year old dresses better than him. Guess when you got as much money as him you can wear what you want and not care.
yeah, he's got em laced horribly, thats awful. I feel like he's disrespecting the 9 South Beaches wearing them like that. Kanye prolly smacked the hell out of him later on.
these shoes are freaking amazing!!!! camping OUT NOW!!!!! he can't lace em for the life of him though, horrible..... he'll learn and get better tho! his swag is way below Kanye's, that's for damn sure.
Still a joke to call them South Beaches. Celebs are the only people who I wouldn't look at and think "This guy must have missed out on the real ones."
No disrespect but I woke up and realized that everyone including their mom has turned into a profound sneakerhead all of a sudden. Man, I need to work for NIKE seriously...they are taking over the universe with synthetic leather, plastic and rubber aka pure profit
It pays to be a Jay -Z. Having all the sick kicks collection to rock and a bootylicious, juicy thighs wifey MILF badly.
it looks like he had the whole outfit together and decided to throw on the Lebron's on as an after thought lol
Ok now I'm super convinced that celebs are paid to rock shoes early. This makes no sense! They look aight, btw IMO

Him and Lebron are homies and I don´t think Lebron has to pay Jigga to rock his shoes... Plus the shoes are hot anyway, just didn´t go THAT well with the outfit.
C'mon do you guys think Jay-Z... one of the greatest rappers of all time cares what we think of his outfit? lets be real here.
