sn 9 at 9 lebron 9 elites Sneaker News NINE@NINE: LeBron 9 Elites

LeBron James is right now in the middle of a stretch of years during which he’s been the most decorated basketball player on the planet.  We can only speculate on how long the King will stay at the peak of his powers (or if he’s even there yet), but three straight NBA Finals appearances and back to back championships suggest there’s still plenty more to come.  And while we’re definitely not going to give all the credit to the shoes, an obvious common thread between both championships has been the Elite Series version of his signature model on his feet come playoff time.

With the third generation of Nike Basketball’s Elite Series set to release later this week, we thought we’d take a look back at LeBron’s first round of Elites, and a shoe that we’ll always remember for coinciding with his first successful title run.  The Nike LeBron 9 Elite pushed the envelope both from a technical perspective as well as pricing, and also stood out for keeping a bunch of tasty colorways unreleased. As we wait to see if a third Elite shoe will bring LeBron a third ring, let’s go back and examine some of the best 9 Elites in tonight’s NINE@NINE.

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.

Turns out Fab isn’t the only Brooklyn boy with an early line on Nike’s LeBron 9 Elite releases, and to be honest this sneaker sighting shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise given how close Jigga and King James have kept things over the years. Jay-Z showed up at the last Nets game of the season taking his sneaker game to ‘South Beach’ right before the Nets take their talent to BK. Hit the jump for the full photos of Jay-Z in the Nike LeBron 9 Elite ‘South Beach’ and let us know in the comments below if you’re feeling his recent LeBron 9 selection. Photos: ESPN

Nike LeBron 9 Elite ‘South Beach’ – Detailed Images

March 26th, 2012 by | 52 comments

In retrospect, the South Beach LeBron 8 could not have arrived at a better time. Hearts were still sensitive about LeBron departure to Miami, but instead of succumbing to the angry rants and blog-posts, Nike responded with ‘Rise’ and hit us with the South Beach colorway, boldly stating “He’s in Miami now. Deal with it.” in such a way that not much else could be said. Since then, the South Beach LeBron 8 skyrocketed in price while LeBron went to the NBA Finals in his first season with Miami, solidifying his decision to truly be to the best of his interests. ‘South Beach’ returns once more to the LeBron 9 Elite, which carries a hefty price-tag of $250 thanks to the re-tooled build and materials like carbon fiber, Pro Combat, and a lightweight upper. No U.S. release date has been confirmed yet, but these have begun to pop up at Euro retailers like ATAF, so perhaps a release will be sooner than later. We’ve got another detailed look below so take a gander and let us know what you think.

Nike LeBron 9 Elite ‘South Beach’

March 23rd, 2012 by | 75 comments

Hot Pink and crisp Aqua Blue has been a staple of the Miami ‘aura’ for decades, but credit the LeBron 8 ‘South Beach’ for revitalizing that Retro-themed vibe in the current generation of advanced color palettes. Since the advent of Nike’s South Beach, there have been a plethora of attempts to recreate that energy by way of custom sneakers, apparel, and other endeavors that admittedly fell short of the South Beach hype, so how does this upcoming Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite fare? We first showed you detailed angles of these a few days ago, and while the ‘South Beach’ theme is rather apparent, these could very well be called the ‘McFly’ for its stark resemblance to the unreleased Nike Hypermax ‘McFly’. In any case, these are bound to be major hits once they hit stores in the coming months, so peep these new images below and stay tuned for more updates. photos via sneakerheadsgermany
