The Elite edition of the LBJ 9 was constructed for peak performance on the court, but that doesn’t mean the Swoosh skipped creating a colorway suited for summer. The “South Beach” LeBron 9 P.S. Elite revisits the Miami-inspired theme last seen on the LBJ 8s, utilizing a light gray base mixed with other colors – officially labeled as mint candy, new green, and pink flash. The Fuse upper, underlying Flywire done in pink Kevlar (instead of the normal nylon) and no-sew construction come together flawlessly but it’s the black carbon fiber on the side panels that provide balance for the colorful shoe’s makeup.
Set to drop in early June, don’t expect these to sit on shelves, even with the $250 price tag.
