Don Johnson was expertly cast as Kenny Powers’ father for the second and third seasons of HBO’s brilliant Eastbound & Down, and just like series lead Danny McBride, Johnson was once singularly associated with a TV character that defined a generation.  James ‘Sonny’ Crockett will forever be remembered for how his rolled-sleeved blazers mirrored early ’80s new wave culture, and now this aesthetic returns as a showpiece for a guy who’s probably the most famous Miami resident.  The ‘South Beach’ Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite gives us that pastel look Miami Vice made famous, but whereas last year’s monster hit Eights went for an overwhelming burst of color, these present their time capsule offering blended with grey.  This highly anticipated LeBron 9 Elite embodies the culmination of a trend that has its roots in 2010’s ‘Cool Grey’ Jordan XI and that year’s aforementioned LeBron 8s; will you be there for the climax when these arrive at Nike Basketball retailers next Saturday, June 2nd?  Check out some nice images from ITSB and look out for these at select retailers like Mr. R in Miami or get yourself a pair early now on eBay.

Went to a nikestore in Bahrain. They never have anything, but they had a FSR of these. Scooped them up. they may cost more here, but nowhere near what most resellers will charge. Dude said they had them for nearly a month. Maybe my duty here wont be so bad. I bought just about all of them to help out friends, the rest I'm sure I will be able to sell...

Taxis are the most slept on release of the year. They are sooo hard, most people will be kicking themselves in the ass next year. Count me on 3-4 pairs. One to keep the rest to sell... All about a dolla.

Real talk the Taxi's have more pop!IMO Im getting these just to compliment them. Got em locked in for $280

Just be honest, you dudes WISH you could get these - you all just don 't have the $$$ for them! Lmao stick to your cheap Jordans. Most of you are just mad that you couldn't get your hands on these if you tried and don't have the $250. I personally don't think $250 is alot of mney, especially when they can be flipped for waaaaay more than any Jordan Retro. I know that I'm copping! :-)

This pair is a combination of my 2 favourite themes, the grey base plus south beach accents. Love my Jordan 5 Wolf Greys and Cool Grey XIs and this is a performance shoe that looks great on it's own, covered in grey with small teal/pink hints. Love it. I'll defintely try to grab them at retail but won't give in to the re-seller if I don't. Fingers crossed for 2nd June! I've not anticipated a pair of LeBrons this much since the Sprite 8 lows!

Miami Vice my ass... slowly i am gettin out of the joint Nike is becoming unreasonable for a shoe that cost a fortune... I can't even sell my kicks upfront or instantly... its frustrating... I don't want to hear my homie telling in the future "that you got broke for a shoe"... so Nike keep your shoes... I'll keep my cash where its safe in my pocket...

I like how people say they dnt want the shoe anymore because the know that they have no chance in gettin em, but will try anyway! 250 is too much for a shoe, but some ppl got it like that & dnt mind (I'm not like that) these will not stay in stores because its been hyped, while all the others are still in stores In my opinion its a nice shoe, 1 of the top 10 shoe releases of the year

The Enforcer

I think the hype has died down a little. Honestly

They hot. But I'm good tho. Too much crazy shit droppin. Props to whoever cop tho. I just cant allow myself to stand in line all day for a pair of sneaks I prolly won't get anyway.

I guess if a sneaker is still in stores its not hot. Lol. Stop judging whats fresh by what everybody buys. Be original and be ya self.

Damn these are nice....Besides the price. I would try an get a pair but I'm sure the never sleeping re sellers already have these on straight lock. Maybe folks will hold off because of price and I can get some with ease, ha doubt it.

Yes, they will release on June 2 nd but not as an Elite version like we see here. They will be $120. Better call the stores to see who's getting what sizes because I've seen a**holes camp out over night for shoes that they ASSUMED a store had, just to find that the store never got them in their size smh And good luck trying to cop these unless you have a connect because the hype is going to be ridiculous because of the resell value these will have. Luckily, I'll have my size 7 on hold. (to rock of course)

im try to buy this with foodstamps...........

the home and away colors were GR for the elites the taxi's are still on selfs because they came out on the same day the aunt pearls and the 4's came out. Plus again they are 250, they are a decent colorway but again for the price to some it's not worth it.

Thats not cool actually, im hoping you didnt pay a ridiculous amount of bread....i only hope for the day the shoe game goes back to where it used to be.

Daydreamer602

yeah..but there most likely going to go for the south beaches because the resail value will be higher

Couldn't have said it better myself. They're great but incredibly over-priced already at retail. Paying re-seller prices is plain dumb, no matter how much money you have.
