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.

NBA Feet: 2012 Finals Game 1 Recap

June 13th, 2012 by | 11 comments

2012 nba finals game 1 22 NBA Feet: 2012 Finals Game 1 Recap

Advantage: Oklahoma City Thunder. Game 1 kicked off in the Chesapeake Arena last night as the OKC Thunder hosted the Eastern Conference representatives for the opening festivities of the 2012 NBA Finals. Sneaker News gave you a quick preview of the LeBron vs. Durant match-up, and clearly, the outcome of the first battle went in Durant’s favor. Durant, who was wearing the Nike Zoom KD IV NBA Finals PE, lit up the fourth quarter and would not let Miami catch up, sealing the deal with teammate Russell Westbrook hitting some key shots.  The entire Thunder squad donned white-based gear, with Center Kendrick Perkins opting for the Air Jordan IV ‘Military’ and Thabo Sefalosha wearing the ‘Home’ Kobe VII Elite.

LeBron James started the game off strong, catching our attention with his own NBA Finals PE of the LeBron 9 Elite, and running-mate Dwyane Wade sported his own PE of the Jordan Fly Wade 2 EV, which featured hints of gold on a red base. The entire Heat squad chose to wear predominately red, with Chris Bosh wearing a sick PE of the Air Max Hyperdunk Elite, Mario Chalmers proudly rocking his own Spalding PE, and perimeter threat Shane Battier wearing his Peak special editions. We’ve got a nice gallery of last night’s NBA Finals Game 1 showdown, so check out the best sneakers of the night and be sure to check back with Sneaker News with more PE goodness and, of course, Thursday night’s Game 2. Photos: yahoo

NBA Feet: Around The League – 6/6 – 6/7

“…Tyson, Jackson, Jordan, Game 6…”

Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, James Harden and Co. are in. They sealed the deal on Wednesday night in Oklahoma City, finishing off their Western Conference Finals opponents in four straight games and punching in Oklahoma City’s first NBA Finals appearance in history. Out East, LeBron James and the Miami Heat faced elimination as they tipped off in Boston down 3-2, and what we witnessed was a magnificent performance on offense and defense. LeBron James, who is rather expressive on the court (whether it be jovial or in complaint), had a stone-cold stoic demeanor from beginning to end, dropping 45 points in what is undoubtedly his greatest NBA Playoffs performance of his career. He’s gone one to go on Saturday night – will he lead the Heat to a Finals showdown against the Thunder? Photos: yahoo

Nike LeBron 9 P.S Elite ‘Miami Vice’ – Arriving at Retailers

Don Johnson was expertly cast as Kenny Powers’ father for the second and third seasons of HBO’s brilliant Eastbound & Down, and just like series lead Danny McBride, Johnson was once singularly associated with a TV character that defined a generation.  James ‘Sonny’ Crockett will forever be remembered for how his rolled-sleeved blazers mirrored early ’80s new wave culture, and now this aesthetic returns as a showpiece for a guy who’s probably the most famous Miami resident.  The ‘South Beach’ Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite gives us that pastel look Miami Vice made famous, but whereas last year’s monster hit Eights went for an overwhelming burst of color, these present their time capsule offering blended with grey.  This highly anticipated LeBron 9 Elite embodies the culmination of a trend that has its roots in 2010′s ‘Cool Grey’ Jordan XI and that year’s aforementioned LeBron 8s; will you be there for the climax when these arrive at Nike Basketball retailers next Saturday, June 2nd?  Check out some nice images from ITSB and look out for these at select retailers like Mr. R in Miami or get yourself a pair early now on eBay.

Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite ‘Varsity Maize’ – Arriving at Retailers

We’re just two games deep (or three in the IND/ORL series) into the 2012 NBA Playoffs, and already the Miami Heat are emerging as a dominant favorite in the Eastern Conference.  Not only has their chief competition lost their reigning MVP and subsequently lost a heartbreaker to the 8-seed, but the Heat are rolling thanks to a supercharged effort from LeBron James.  The King has gone up a gear as he reaches for that elusive championship ring, and so has his kick game with the Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite the most technically advanced basketball sneaker ever released.  This ‘Varsity Maize’ LeBron 9 Elite was designed as something of an alternate look for Miami’s nearly quarter-century old color scheme, a bold, alarming look that’s far from the chill ‘South Beach’ vibes.  Some have called these the ‘Taxi’ LeBron 9 Elites, but even if that name doesn’t stick, NikeStore’s non-stock on this model means you might have to call a cab to get in line for yours at retailers like Miami’s Mr. R on May 12th.  Photos: ITSB

LeBron James and the Miami Heat took a commanding 2-0 lead in their First Round Series against the New York Knicks, and their leader did so in style by wearing a PE colorway of the controversial Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite. Unlike the released version, which featured a Gold trim and contrast Flywire cables, this PE features a red midsole with matching laces as well as a White swoosh and a black ankle-vent on the upper. LeBron also wore a PE in Game 1, which was just the ‘Home’ colorway with a Metallic Red swoosh. What sort of PE will LeBron have in store for us when he visits New York for Game 3? Check out the in-game shots as well as close-ups of LeBron’s Game 2 kicks below and let us know what you think. Photos: yahoo

Up to this point the Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite ‘Varsity Maize’ has been sort of the odd man out as far as colorways go for the Nike LeBron 9 Elite, with no apparent connection along the same story line of the regal gold versions and the revisit to the ‘South Beach’ theme. Our recent exclusive sit down with Nike Basketball designers Jason Petrie and Leo Chang did help to shed some light on the black and yellow pairing however, intended as a re-imagining of the traditional Miami Heat color combos. Click through for the latest look at the Nike LeBron 9 Elite ‘Varsity Maize’ and let us know if you approve of the flipped color scheme. Also, make sure you have your calender marked for the May 12th release date. Photos: Air Knight
