Today Nike officially announced the Nike Basketball Elite Series – three basketball shoes from the Kobe, LeBron, and Hyperdunk series that bring the next level of footwear innovation to the court-hopping masses.  We’ve already gotten a look at the Nike Zoom Kobe VII “Elite” in two different colorways.  Here we have a look at the Nike LeBron 9 Elite “Home”.

All three shoes are composed of the latest high-performance materials such as carbon fiber and Flywire, emphasizing both performance and barely-there weight.  Additionally, they feature  new padded collars inspired by the Nike Pro Combat series, and a newly designed sock liner which combines 3D anatomical fit with a non-slip print to minimize internal movement and slippage.

The Nike LeBron 9 Elite “Home” and the rest of the Elite lineup drop 04/28/2012.  We’ll keep you posted on pricing and release distribution info as it becomes available

As always, we’ll keep you posted on any future updates and release info @kicksologists or on Facebook.
