This is the shoe pretty much. They wouldn't have him playing in wear test model with the proper cushioning....the air unit isn't visible but it's still 360 zoom.

@Da_Real_Big_Infinite And even more of what you say doesn't add up. So they changed the 10's to look like the 8's because the 9's were so horrible you said. But you also saying the 9's sold out. So if that was the case they would want the 10 to look more like the 9's then so they could sell out also.And the LeBron you said looked better because of the 360 Air Bag is still sitting on shelves.And LeBron went back to 360 air bag because they made it lighter and more responsive. If he hated the shoe that bad he would of asked for it to be changed wayyyyyy back in the testing phase. He's played in the shoe probably 9 months before we ever even saw it.

@Da_Real_Big_Infinite I'm from Philly, the last thing we are is a dinky town. Obviously you don't know what your talking about to say the 4's, Foams, and Jordan 9's weren't hype. Every shoe you just named sold out on every site instantly.And I don't get the point you trying make. Because some colors of the 9 sat because they're ugly, but the ones that moved was because of hype.Either way its gonna be unfair.And you act like he went back to the same 360 unit.No.It's Zoom Air in it so it's more comfortable then any of his other shoes. And if the shoe you did name are still on shelves then they obviously not going for retail.PS every shoe on your profile picture was more hyped then all the 9's except the Miami Vice,Big Bang,Cannon,Chinas.
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite And what shoe this year didn't have hype and sold ? The 4's this year was hype, the foams this year was hype, the 9's this year was hype. And thats the reason why all those sold.
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite The flywire was made from Kevlar, unless ya friends are freak of nature athletes I doubt that happened. How can you call a shoe thats most carbon fiber garbage. The elites had wayyyyy better material than the 8. Even thought I loved it, the shoe was heavy. And c'mon how can every shoe lebron put out be hype. Was the Mango hype ?No.Was the Swingman hype? No.The Scarface hype ? No.Was the Summit Lake Hornets hype?No. But they sold out.Not to mention the numbers they did with ID's.And that's hype? C'mon now. PS. And I don't know how you can love the 8 and hate the 10's. The 10 is basically a better designed 8 with better materials and technology.
@inTheNameofQuen In my area the Elites Homes,Taxis moved along with the Kentucky Miami and Scarface. But if the shoe is not a success and not a fail then what is it ? It was the best selling Nike Basketball shoe last year.The only thing to come close is the KD and even then your comparing a 95 dollar shoe to a 170 dollar shoe.
@inTheNameofQuen So because the most simplistic colorway of the shoe didn't sell it's a fail? I remember the 8 V1 Bred not flying off shovels.And every sneaker line is selling crazy colorways, so how is it when LeBron does it, it's a gimmick ? C'mon man
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite I don't know what your definition of fail is , but the 9's were far from that. As far a quality goes it was miles better than the Kobe 7's and KD IV's and everything Jordan Brand released besides the 2012.Second damn near every colorway of that shoe sold of instantly.From the Big Bangs,Miami Nights,Swingmans,Chinas,Cannons,Christmas,Miami Vice etc. And even some GR's like the Mangos and Homes and Summit Lake colorways sold out.Not to mention the number of ID's people made. Third the 9's was basically Nike had to offer at the time by it combining all it's latest technologies. To call the 9 a fail you obliviously haven't payed attention to the last year in the sneaker world. PS they only made 15,000 pairs of elites, divide that by 50 and your getting 300 pairs per state. So I goes that classifies as limited. And Only 22 colorways (including the Elites) were put out, not 50.
Looks like they just took the Mango and Lava colorways from the LeBron line and put it on these...not bad tho
