Questioning the definition of the word ‘elite’ was a major theme throughout the NFL season as the Super Bowl-winning quarterback proved you can’t spell that word without his own name. This year’s NBA season has moved with an accelerated pace that’s squelched some of this talk in favor of the mass of highlights out there every night, but there’s still plenty of chatter from talking heads about whether LeBron James is making the most of his once-in-a-lifetime potential. One easy way to shut up all the critics would be for King James to hoist the Larry O’Brien trophy wearing a pair of Nike LeBron 9 Elites; but does this Varsity Maize colorup have enough Miami Heat tie-in to show up in the Playoffs, or will these end up a ‘street’ exclusive like so many recent memorable Nike LeBron drops? Stick with Sneaker News for updates as we approach the May 12th release date and check out some new images of the ‘Varsity Maize’ LeBron 9 Elite below. Photos: taobao
I can't figure out why people get on these sneaker sites and complain about pricing like Nike is going to send a suicide bomber to your house if you don't cop these kicks. if you think they're hot , like me, find a way to cop them retail. If you can't afford em then get some $160 retros or something and stop complaining.
Real nice shoe, better than those south beaches, imo its the best LB 9 Elite cw. Shame that its $250, cause no matter how nice it is, im not paying $250 cash for a shoe that isnt even a deadstock pair thats hard to find nowadays
these look amazing. the material, technology, and attention to detail is on point. this is what ALL of Nike's shoes should look like. I'm sure they make enough profit to put this shoe as a more resonable price like $150-$175. but all in all, I really do like the Elite Bron 9's
For nearly $270 with tax i rather enjoy looking at them on another person feet.
Nike is abusing the consumer however these people nowadays are so hyped about every released and will buy anything everthing
Probably 10 years ago these would sit on the shelf and be discounted however nothing discounted these days because they sellout nationwide on the first date of release so now nike has no hesitaton of slapping a heffy price tag on kicks now because they know they're going sell.
