After debuting earlier this week, it didn't take long for this grey-based colorway of the Nike LeBron 9 Elite to find the top of many sneakerhead wish lists. Already the recipient of lofty "South Beach" and "McFly" nicknames, the shoe is accented by familiar green and pink hues mostly associated with last season's game-changing "South Beach" LeBron 8. Performance features include breathable mesh panels along the sides, vamp and toebox, as well as a true winged carbon fiber overlay wrapped around the base. An extra set of pink laces offer an alternative look above, while what appears to be another glowing outsole wraps things up below.
Whatever you're calling this colorway, look for these to release on Saturday, June 2 at $250.
