Nike Lebron 9 P.S. Elite in the varsity maize, black, and white color way. We often try to nickname special shoe releases, if Nike doesn't attach a concept on their own, and the sneaker community at times can't seem to agree. This varsity maize Lebron model immediately was dubbed the "Taxi" edition because of a similarly colored Nike Zoom Lebron VI (6) "NYC Taxi" edition which (like the "Big Apple" edition) was released in anticipation for Lebron's free agency and hopes of him coming to NY. But the fact is that it would be blasphemy to New Yorkers for anyone to associate a Lebron shoe to NYC and the shoe also features red and white on it, instead of grey. So a more appropriate association is "Bruce Lee". Why you ask? Because of a similarly themed and popular Nike Zoom Kobe V (5) "Bruce Lee" model just 2 years ago which featured a mostly varsity maize and black color pattern and red accents. Instead of the recognizable 3 slashes of blood that was featured on the Kobe model, this Lebron features a red speckled Air Max bubble which looks an awful lot like blood splashed on the shoe. The yellow and black scheme draws inspiration from the 1978 Bruce Lee film "Game Of Death" which also starred Kareem Abdul Jabbar, in which Lee sported a black and yellow jump suit and at one point gets blood on it adding the color red as an accent. No matter what you call this shoe, it is in fact an awesome color way of the new Nike Lebron 9 P.S. Elite.
