What started with scaled-back, black and white home and away choices quickly became a phenomenon with the powerful pink and mint South Beach colourway. Now the LeBron 9 Elite has cleared the lane for the Taxis to take the city. Sitting on a simple black and white base, the vibrant Varsity Maize creates a dynamic new look for the yet-to-drop sneaker. Keeping Pat Riley's "All of my soldiers wear the same color boots" quote in mind, don't expect to see LeBron hit the floor in these, but they can be yours on May 12 at selected Nike retailers.
