There was only one PE for LeBron James in the NBA Finals, and sadly, the one time he wore it was the only game he lost. Win or lose and all superstitions aside, his Red PE of the LeBron 9 Elite was definitely a looker, and quickly Mache Customs whipped up his own version of the shoes using the ‘Home’ as a base. The customs, of course, were an instant hit, and we’re certain a release might’ve topped the Miami Vice Elites as the best of the bunch. However, a release is just a pipe dream at this point, but these customs (not done by Mache) are still attainable as they’ve become available online. If you need these in your stash, better jump on ’em because just six pairs will be available by commission. One final look below, so take a gander and head on over to the listing from bxwb84 on eBay.
@Tired of customs.....How the hell are customized authentic sneakers fake? That sir makes no f*cking sense to me.
I really hope they release these... these are probably da best elite out of da bunch. Better then da south beaches in my opinion
Sneakernews- just to let you guys know the ones that are for auction definitely aren't my pairs, these are copies that someone else did
theyer filthy but they lost the game he wore these in so dont get why all the attentions on these pe's
How long does it take to make customs like these? My sister is an artist, and i'd like to teach her the sneaker game if it can help her out.
"customs" are the same as fakes imo ... Neither we're actually authorized for release by Nike, JB, etc! (cw in the "customs" case) ... So why aren't they as frowned upon as fakes!? ... Make it make sense
Cuz their fuuuuckin dope dats why... and wat does losin game 1 have to do wit da shoes as a whole... so u only buy lebrons he wins games in. Well guess wat he lost at least 1 game in da Blk pair, white pair & this pair...
just patience, precision and dedication. The Time all depends on the person. Just make sure she does her research on how to prep the shoe before paint is applied and what kind of paint works on the shoe because of she messes up, it becomes an expensive hobby. Test and Practice on something that wont hurt your pocket.
Cuz their NOT FAKES... jus cuz u change da color scheme of da ACtUAL shoe, doesn't make them fakes. Ur still using da ACTUAL PRODUCT... and when have u seen any1 wearing fake elite lebrons... da product hasn't even been on da market dat long
I been in the sneakergame for 4-5 years, been checking up on sneaker news and nice kicks etc, and i gotta say, this is by far the dumbest comment I have ever seen. I know it's just opinion, but, i can't understand how you see that to be true in anyway.
They rewrote the article after mache corrected them loser. If it always said it in the article, why would mache have to comment above and let sneakernews know it wasn't his?Know wtf you're talking about before you try and play someone son!
Nike cuts corners to cut cost. Lol. And tired of customs u have no opinion moron if u take a real Nike shoe and put paint on it sole swap ect it's a modification. Just like if you bought a car and "pimped it out". Is my custom vw gti r32 fake cause it's painted, new wheels, engin mod's NO it's better, not always the case with a custom but it is what it is.
