Nike LeBron 9 Elite
Posted on March 20, 2012 by Textbook
Kobe Bryant’s sneaker is set to go elite in time for the NBA Playoffs, so it’s just fair that LeBron James’ sneaker does too.
After news that the Nike Zoom Kobe VII Elite will be dropping in both a Home and Away colourway, the Nike LeBron 9 Elite has also surfaced, and will also be released in two very similar (exact same) colourways.
As far as technology goes, this new LeBron sneaker is the name suggests, elite. With Flywire being the sneakers material of choice, and with carbon fiber also included, this sneaker it bound to help with performance on the court.
Unfortunately, it’s very doubtful that LeBron James will bust a pair of these out before the post-season. However, I’m sure by then we will see some more colourways surface. So, for now it’s just Black/Gold and White/Gold Elite LeBron 9’s that we’re going to have to live with.
While there is no official word on when the Elite LeBron 9’s will hit stores, it is suggest that they will be dropped sometime in May like the Elite Kobe VII’s.
With that said, I’m sure further details will soon be known by reliable sources. Until then, stay tuned and check out the images below.
