Remember back when the hood was telling 50 Cent they couldn’t believe Reebok did a deal with a psycho? Those days are firmly in Curtis Jackson’s past at this point, freeing up his sneaker selection options now that no sort of endorsement deal has him obligated to rock with any particular brand. His most recent wear was the black and gold ‘away’ colorway of the Nike LeBron 9 Elite, paired up with a heavy dosage of other black attire for a chat and photo shoot with Extra host and recent Dancing With the Stars contestant Maria Menounos. Hit the jump to check out the full gallery and let us know in the comments if you still think 50′s sneakers look right, yo. Photos: Zimbio

To top it all off some sneaks originally scheduled for next weekend miraculously got bumped up at at least one online retailer, with the ‘Away’ versions of both the Nike LeBron 9 Elite and the Nike Zoom Kobe VII Elite up for grabs now at Jimmy Jazz. Click through for a look at both before you make your decision and act fast if you wanna cop, but if you miss out and would prefer the digital route, you can pick up either pair right now on eBay.

While LeBron James will certainly have the Championship Trophy on his mind when he and Miami Heat begin their quest in the Playoffs, he won’t be playing every game in Miami, will he? Accompanying the Nike LeBron 9 Elite ‘Home’ that we just kicked off is the obvious ‘Away’ colorway, which features a sturdy black base paired with the luxurious gold detailing. The upper is strengthened with a carbon fiber panel that spans the lateral outrigger to the heel, giving LeBron’s 240 lb. frame enough protection when he cuts, darts, and explodes off the hardwood and slams in a monstrous two. The ‘wing’ is also replaced by the lightweight and breathable mesh for decreased weight, and the other details like the visible Flywire and the Pro Combat-padded tongue and interior complete the ‘Elite’ appeal, awarding the LeBron 9 Elite the designation as the sexiest LeBron shoe ever created. Of course, ‘Home’ and ‘Away’ aren’t the only Elite colorways we can expect, because we did tease you a ‘South Beach’-like colorway not long ago. Continue reading for a complete look at the Nike LeBron 9 Elite ‘Away’ and mark your calendars for April 28th as that is the release date currently set by Nike.
