It’s a wonder we haven’t seen a Halo-inspired sneaker custom more often. The massive video-game franchise’s main character Master Chief quickly became one of the more recognizable fictional figures for the newest generation of gamers, but his influence hasn’t been too felt on the custom scene until now. The shiny green armor of that man main is transferred over onto the Nike LeBron 9 Elite here courtesy of Revive Customs. Continue reading to see this Nike LeBron 9 Elite “Master Chief”, including the details it’s got going on with the lights off, and tell us in the comments if they do justice to the Halo franchise.

Even with the Nike LeBron X Elite, the popularity surrounding the custom/sample Nike LeBron 9 Elite is pretty high – mainly because there were such few colorways to go around. GourmetKickz hits us with a custom concept that is rather predictable, but he gives it some incredible detailing by using the Galaxy print on the upper Carbon Fiber panel, and giving glowing treatment to the aforementioned Galaxy panel as well as the outsole and the laces. Gourmetkickz isn’t done yet with his homage to the Galaxy All-Star Pack of 2012, so check out this custom below and let us know if you’d like to see more LeBron 9 Elite customs!

Nike LeBron 9 Elite “Championship” on eBay

April 11th, 2013 by | 7 comments

We already know LeBron James is ready for the Playoffs, considering his Heat squad already clinched Home Court throughout the postseason, and there’s talks already that the Heat will indeed repeat as champions. If they do, we can bet that Nike has a “Championship” version of the Elite X lined up, but how will it compare to the Nike LeBron 9 Elite that released last year? Considering the limited quantity and the nature of the release (it being LBJ’s first title), the Nike LeBron 9 Elite version might be a more attractive pick-up, so if you’re a popular size 10 and don’t want to shell out the money for the entire Pack, a solo pair just became available from sneakerchamp619 on eBay.

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.

Nike LeBron 9 Elite “Watch The Throne” Customs by SmoothTip

It’s sad that the Nike LeBron 9 Elite didn’t have a longer life-span, because all of those crazy sample colorways like the ‘China’, ‘Volt Dunkman’, and more could’ve hit stores. Unfortunately, Nike was extremely selective with its Elite-level releases, dropping only the Home/Away combo, the Taxi, the Miami Vice, and later the Championship colorway as part of the Pack, but luckily for us sneaker customizers have looked to the Elite as the perfect canvas for unthinkable creations. SmoothTip recently fashioned the Elite in the jaw-dropping Watch The Throne style, adding the sick Givenchy-inspired graphic on the inner lining as well as on the laces and the crazy golden jewel-piece on the laces. We’ve got a gallery below so check out this amazing work below and let us know if you think more Elite releases should’ve gone down.

Is the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Championship/MVP’ Pack’ the most coveted LeBron release (note: this doesn’t include PEs and samples) of all-time? The first ever two-pair Pack release bearing LeBron’s name dropped last Summer after LeBron cemented his name among the all-time greats by winning his first ‘chip and third overall League MVP, and the value of these bad boys has steadily risen over the last few months. A Nike LeBron X Pack bearing the same name is very likely considering the Heat are playing at a high level thanks to LeBron’s undeniable MVP-level performances, and if it does boil down to that result, we can’t wait to see what Nike has in store. Take one good look at this rare Pack below and if you’re interested in seeing what the asking price is, see the full listing from backroad_music on eBay.
