Nike Elite Series: LeBron 9 PS

Nike Basketball has covered two of the three Elite Basketball Series models and they saved the best for last.

Why are the LeBron 9 P.S. Elite the best? These are the only pair of the three where the designers re-created the model – basically from scratch – and truly upgraded upon the original version… at least in my eyes. Sure, there are some subtle differences between the original Hyperdunk 2011 & Kobe VII versus the Elite models; however, the LeBron 9 is where you get the most bang for your buck… which is saying something since they are the most expensive of the three.

I was fortunate enough to test these out prior to their official U.S. release and thought they were fantastic. You can check out that review HERE if you haven’t done so already.

  1. Hey NW, i think its funny that there was a perfect example of karma on nike, like you said… They called out d rose saying that he shoulda signed with nike and now look, BG’s shoe ripped! Crazy right!

    1. Remember it was Jason Petrie which is one person who said it.
      Yeah, he is responsible for the Elite collection and with Hyperdunk Elite torn up, talking about not doing your job.

        1. You are probably right, NightWing. From those interviews, it makes sense to let designers who work standard versions, work the Elite Versions.
