The release of the “Statue of Liberty” colorway of the Hyperposites inspired several sneaker customizers to create their own Lady Liberty designs on various shoes, but based on this new development, it looks like Nike had internal plans as well for the Nike LeBron 9 Elite. This never-before-seen sample features the catchy mint green and gold colorway, although this doesn’t feature the streaks of gold that represents the rusted exterior of the historic landmark (although Mache’s version covered that quite nicely). Just like all the other LeBron 9 Elite bangers we saw (tonal Volts, Chinas, an so on), these never released and has no plans to do so, so feast your eyes here for a first look and let us know what you think.
pretty awesome, better than the dunk. the 9 and the elite 9 was the best lebron, pity there wasn't many elite 9 colorways. this would have been crazy if released.
Saw this earlier. Failed to mention it was another P.E.
Dopest Lebron. Brilliant colorway. Great model. Execution flawless. Best LBJ9, easy
This colorway was best executed on the Dunk with the color-scratching paint. The rest of these are okay, but those Dunks were super clean.
@Carnelp Not possible. There were other Elite versions of the 9 we didn't get instead of just the 4. One that really stood out, too. But these Oz joints, my goodness!
