LeBron James definitely gained a lot of fans and probably even a few haters when he and the Miami Heat won the 2012 NBA Championship. Nike is still capitalizing on their big win with the LeBron 9 Championship pack – consisting of not one, but two of LeBron’s signature sneakers.
One of the set is none other than the player exclusive LeBron 9 PS Elite that BronBron wore during Game One of the 2012 NBA Finals and was previously unavailable for sale.
The LEBRON 9 MVP features striking team colors. A gradient fade from red to black with yellow detailing comprise the upper, while details including an MVP graphic on the heel and trophies printed on the sockliner mark the award.
The LEBRON 9 PS Elite was worn by James in game one of the 2012 Finals and is featured in this red and black colorway. With a midfoot harness that wraps around the foot, the shoe also incorporates Flywire technology for strength and lock down support. The finely-tuned midsole provides a unique hybrid cushioning system by combining Max Air 180 in the heel for absorption on impact with a Nike Zoom unit in the forefoot for a springy response.
The pack is set to release tomorrow, August 11th, at select Nike retailers in limited quantities, however pricing details have not been released. If we had to guess, you should expect to pay around $400 for the package, seeing as how each shoe costs about $200 individually.
