Inside the Nike Basketball design studios, performance is everything. Every move and decision is made with maximum performance in mind, including the actual visual look of the shoes created within. The pursuit of ultimate functionality determines not only how a shoe performs and feels on your foot, but in many cases, it also dictates a lot of the aesthetic choices as well. Once the shoe has been fully developed and engineered to it’s full potential, it’s time for the color, graphics and materials team to further bring the products to life with a variety of color splashes and palettes to help to tell certain stories and give some additional identity to each colorway.

Yesterday, in part 1 of our Nike Basketball Elite Series interview with Nike Bball designers Jason Petrie and Leo Chang, we got the full lowdown on the technical updates made to each of the three models to upgrade from their original forms into this super premium postseason-inspired collection. Now we take a deeper look at why the Elite Series looks the way it does, from its shapes, lines and materials to the various color schemes and the stories behind them. Continue reading for all you wanted to know about the Nike Basketball Elite Series aesthetics and colorways, and be on the look out for the home and away versions of all three models hitting retailers this Saturday, April 28th.

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 – Mint Candy – Pink Flash | Hitting Euro Retailers

The Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite is set for a debut on American soil this April 28th when the Black/Metallic Gold ‘Away’ joints officially hit stores at the stirring price-tag of $250. The discussion regarding the price of the sneaker has continued to be one of the more engaging topics among our readers, and with other figures floating around for a possible LeBron X release surpassing the $300 mark, those who employ a level of prudence with their cash flow have begun to ‘draw the line’, so to speak. While $250 might be a bit much to drop on a sneaker, others deem it a ‘no-brainer’ – particularly for the high-energy Wolf Grey/Mint Candy-New Green-Pink Flash release. Those won’t be available in the States until June 2nd, but Euro retailers have already begun to make them available (and some have sold out quickly, like Euro retailer Titolo. Will you cop these in June? Let us know your thoughts in the comments area below, and if you can’t resist anything remotely ‘South Beach’, you can cop one of the available pairs on eBay.

Late last month, Sneaker News first showed you a preview shot of the Varsity Maize/Black-White colorway of the Nike LeBron 9 Elite. Here we have another look at these upcoming releases, which are in the hands of pop-star Chris Brown; like the ‘South Beach’ version of the Elite, this interesting colorway likely has some bearing on LeBron James’ personal tastes – maybe he’s got a thing for the yellow/black Camaro/Transformer known as Bumblebee? What we do know is that these are set for a release in the coming months, so we’ll keep you updated on the release information when it develops. Your thoughts on this upcoming colorway, or any ideas of what this Yellow/Black colorway entails? Let us know in the comments area below.
