When the Miami Heat take the court for the NBA Playoffs later this month, expect LeBron James to lace up 'Home' and 'Away' colorways of the next generation of his ninth signature shoe, the Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite. The white and black-based styles feature trophy-inspired golden accents throughout. Lightweight performance has been ensured through the use of ultra-high tensile strength Flywire made with Kevlar. Carbon fiber midfoot support shanks, Pro Combat padded collars and performance sockliners will help guide the King in his quest from ring number one.
Nikestore expects to drop their runs of each Elite 9 on April 28, but physical retailers like Miami's Mr. R Sports will be dropping them this Friday.
