As the NBA Playoffs begin to get underway next weekend, LeBron James will be breaking out his most expensive sneaker yet in the $250 Nike LeBron 9 Elite. With a sizable carbon fiber support wing along the upper and helpings of Kevlar support cables throughout, James, designer Jason Petrie and the Nike Basketball team are hoping that the 9 Elite will also be the shoe he will finally win his very first championship in. While he’ll be rocking both white and black base versions of the shoe with gold accenting, and perhaps an all red PE for a game or two, we most likely won’t be seeing him in this colorway launching next May. “Unfortunately, I don?t think Riles is going to let them wear the yellow,” sighs Petrie. But will you be coping on May 12th, 2012?
