More and more images of new color-ways of Lebrons P.S. Elite and his low version for the 9's have been popping up and just last week we saw a new one that has never been put on a Lebron in the past. Were talking about the Floridians, or as some people have titled them "bubblicious." These are set for a May 5th release but are already available at some locations.
Here is the infoNike LeBron 9 Low
If interested call your local spot to see if they got em cause this color-way is perfect for the summer time and will be turning heads just as much if not more than the "Sprites."
The first time the Super Reds were let out into the world Ronnie did so with the classic Gel Lyte III. Taking the same color-way and grey hints and details these GT II's are just as super as the Gel Lyte III's. Part of Ronnie Fiegs lookbook for these kicks features Casey Diego sporting these awesome shoes. The shoes are scheduled to release tomorrow April 27th at all Kith locations and at the online shop at kithnyc.com. Check out the image below and head over to the site to check out the rest of the collection sold and sold out at Kith. Ronnie Fieg does it right, and does it constantly. We will be watching him closely from DRIPT for more and more in the future.
MSRP....MSRP....MSRP....one of the most controversial topics when it comes to product. Is this the right price? I dont want to pay this! Why isn't it lower? I want these but can't afford it, why is it so high? on and on and on. The answer to all these questions is simple. Nike sets the price, and either you pay it or you don't. Nike sets its prices where they do for a reason and from our opinion the $250 price tag on the Lebron 9 P.S. Elite is absolutely right on target. Based on the performance capabilities and the technology placed in and all around these kicks Nike should be charging more! We recently showed you an image of the Lebron 9 P.S. Elite South Beach color-way and now we have the Maize edition. Absolutely fantastic, and wish they had used a majority maize upper for the 8's too. Check out the image below of an on court capture and let us know what you think of these superior elite kicks.
After this years drop of the Summit Lake Hornets in the blazing purple and blue, and seeing how much of a hit it was, it would only be dumb to not release a low version or to continue using such vibrant colors in the Lebron signature line. This pair of lows seems to tone down the electricity in the purple and provide a more matching purple and blue choice, while still giving the hornet heel icon. As much as the full length 360 air is awesome, the Lebron 9 high has a better look with that carbon fiber plate and air max in the heel only.
Every two years, any athlete or sports enthusiast has one thing on their mind and thats the Olympics. Sometimes people are a little more selective in terms of winter or summer but we try not to be since that means you need to wait longer. Nike is releasing three of their Air Max kicks with the Olympic ring colors featured on the upper in a hyperfuse manner. One thing that is consistent with Olympic related kicks is usually a navy/red/white/gold/black color-scheme but in this case Nike has chosen to go with the colors of the rings. Below we have pictures of the Air Max 2012, the 95 BB+, and the 90 Hyperfuse. The coolest thing about these kicks is the multi-colored upper that actually allows for some sick color blending if you look where the layers are overlapping. Are these going to be kicks you pick up or not? Let us know in the comment section.
Christian Tresser designed the first Air Max 97 which was released in 1997 ironically enough. It was designed using the Japanese Bullet train as inspiration. It featured the first full length air unit specifically made for running. The CVS edition sports a canvas upper as compared with other synthetics or natural materials and is constructed a little differently than its predecessors. This release is sporting a volt upper with white midsole to make a splash of color for the Fifteenth Anniversary of the shoe.
