Some salty NBA fans might not put LeBron in the category of ‘elite’ players until he’s got a ring to show for his dominance, but even those doubters oughta have a hard time denying the elite status given to his post season sneaker for this year. The Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite is set to arrive in a group of colorways that are anything but conspicuous, with perhaps the least attention grabbing of the bunch still being a gaudy golden affair. With that being said the most attention grabbing of the bunch has to be this redux of the ‘South Beach’ colorway, a minty pair that we’ve seen gain a number of fans over the past couple weeks. Click through for more shots of the Nike LeBron 9 Elite PS ‘South Beach’ from RMK and if you feel the need to scoop them before the June 2nd release date, you can find some now on eBay.

Sorry, I just realized I'm a huge idiot and have no concept of what shoes actually cost to make. Disregard any thing that I say from here on out. Oh and make sure to thumbs me down every chance you get while calling me names and making fun of my mother. Thanks!
This is just plain ugly! It looks good to other people due to its NAME "southbitch" but in reality nike is just milking us bcoz they know people will bite on this whatever the prize is. Wake up people! Next time this shoes will hit 300$. Take note!
How exactly is Sneakernews hyping these? they haven't put out tons of articles of highprofiled celebrities wearing them. They haven't done articles about Lebron himself wearing them or something they've just shown us a few pictures and there's nothing wrong with that at all
Hypebeast Reseller things to do today... 1. Daily check of SN blog. 2. Find shoe with most comments. 3. Start "camping". 4. Add to Ebay.
I don't get it when people bitch and moan about how SN is only adding to the hype of a certain sneaker, it's called SNEAKERNEWS so whenever sneaker news comes up the'll report on it.
FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! $250 come on guys get your money up when you see people rocking them your going to want them then its going to be $800 then your really gonna have to throw down money THROWING THEM PINK LACES ON
I'm glad alotta people looking the other way on these hopefully it won't be too ridiculous to grab a pair
at $250 this should ensure some hypebeast fall off. so im all for it.. it better come with a midget to tie my shoes everytime i wanna put em'on though
If Nike made a penis flesh color sneaker and it was a quickstrike and it was a pasted on a popular model(Jordan,kobe,Lebron,SB etc) you idiots would buy it smh and it would be marked at $350 retail. That's what the sneaker game has come too
LIKE I SAID BEFORE NOT worth $250!!!! smh nike is just gonna keep raisin the prices if you idiots keep buying them!
damn its going to be june 2nd already... overrated shoe imo those who realy like the shoe and that will actually wear them i wish them the best of luck..but you bitch made resellers i hope you get stabbed and get your shit robbed.. hyp beasts too
im so excited for these. i like these more than the original south beach honestly just bc there isn't as much hype surrounding these and less people like them imo. excited to say the least and love them!
I like this a little but IMO the lebron 9 elite home look better than these, I never got caught up in the hype.
Well, now that every faggot rapper in the universe has worn these, I'll dub 'em H Y P E beast material and keep it movin' I WILL ROCK SOME FRENCH COQUE"S IF THAT IS WHAT IT TAKES TO KEEP THE GAME AWAY FROM THESE LIGHT-IN-THE-ASS N I G G A Z. Not really but you get my point.
I agree and disagree with that comment. People are allowed to buy something how they very well please, but yeah the demand is so high now that Nike can do what they want as far as pricing
The South Beach 8's stayed on shelves for weeks when they released. They didn't get hyped to later. These will sell out just because of the "South Beach" theme.
i feel the same way. the elite home, and truthfully the away are way better then these. people are brain washed. wen u say south beach they automatically want them. coped the home elites but the away look so sexy in person . might try and cop those too. i heard they gonna drop a south beach converse. hahaha. us
The price is 250 because of the materials used. The better materials are designed for better basketball performance. If you aren't even going to play basketball in these, and you are complaning about the price, that is just idiotic. You really need all this technology so you can walk around in the club/mall ? didnt think so. If you want these for casual wear, and you don't like the price, stick with the regular 9s, it's simple.
