Following up the LeBron 8 “South Beach” colorway, Nike debuted the LeBron 9 Elite in the popular color blocking during June 2012.
Inspired by the tropical vibes of Miami. The South Beach style was still highly demanded, as this LeBron 9 Elite sold out quickly and became one of the most sought-after colorways of the high performance model.
The shoe featured a Wolf Grey upper paired with Black carbon fiber overlays. Highlighting the design are Mint Green and Pink contrasting accents to give off that South Beach vibe.
