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.

nike lebron 9 elite south beach mvp Another Unreleased Nike LeBron 9 MVP Sample

Yes, it’s another Nike LeBron 9 “South Beach MVP” sample. Where does this pair differ from the one we showed you yesterday though? The sneakers are this time missing out on the pink parts that make the South Beach theme complete-the lining instead utilizes the same turquoise tones as the majority of the upper. Which will go down as the more coveted sample years from now? Let us know your predictions in the comments and then check out the rare chance to own this MPV/South Beach style Nike LeBron 9 Elite sample from kixrx on eBay.

Nike LeBron 9 Elite “South Beach MVP” Sample

February 4th, 2014 by | 21 comments

nike lebron 9 elite mvp south beach sample Nike LeBron 9 Elite South Beach MVP Sample

The Nike LeBron 9 Elite was a sneaker that was way more prolific in the sample realm than it was in the retail one. Amongst those never released pairs, this colorway remains one of the more puzzling. The sneakers feature a South Beach looking colorway and some detailing that points to LeBron’s capturing of the MVP award that year. The latter has some making a “Statue of Liberty” connection thanks to the metallic detailing in place, but we’ve got a feeling that’s just a coincidence. See a full set of angles on the pink-liner version of the shoes and then check out the rare chance to own these samples from kixrx on eBay.

LeBron James and his Weekend “Volt” Nikes

lebron james volt nike shoes 1 LeBron James and his Weekend Volt Nikes

The Miami Heat had a busy weekend with two victories in two different Florida cities on back to back nights.  LeBron James often makes the impossible look easy, so it’s not entirely shocking that even while tasked with a quick road trip and a tip against arguably the hottest team in the league, he still found time to show off a couple of fits on Instagram.  Both were Volt-heavy, with King James donning a Nike Air Max+ 2012 for a workout and the unreleased ‘Dunkman’ LeBron 9 Elite for the plane ride back to MIA.  Click in to see LeBron wearing both and let us know which looked better to you.

If LeBron’s first season down in South Beach had led him and the Heat to the promised land, it is entirely possible that we would have seen that “2 Time Champ” theme show up on a totally different sneaker. Perhaps imagining such a fate is this new creation from District Customs. The sneaker brings that theme from the Nike LeBron 10 Low and ports it over onto the Nike LeBron 9 Elite with some pretty impressive detail thrown into the print. Continue reading for a complete set of images on the shoe and tell us in the comments if you like what District Customs put together here.

Nike LeBron 9 Elite – “6″ Logo PE

September 11th, 2013 by | 3 comments

nike lebron 9 elite black red playoffs pe Nike LeBron 9 Elite   6 Logo PE

The Miami Heat had some high expectations for the 2012 NBA Playoffs. After all, they did project multiple championships, and after coming off a loss to the Dallas Mavericks in 2011, the Heat were even more prepared for the grueling second season known as the Playoffs. During the postseason, LeBron wore several PE colorways of the Nike LeBron 9 Elite, like this clean all-black version with a metallic red Swoosh. What we do get to see here is the dope “6″ logo on the inner side of the heel – a nice precursor to all the LeBron X joints that went with the anchored logo spot for all of its releases. We’ve got additional angles below so take a look and see the entire listing from ronnihughes on eBay.
