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.
