After spotting a quartet of unreleased Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite samples recently, we get a closer look at the "Galaxy" make-up here. The elite version is near identical to the All-Star game variant with color selection and placement staying true to the "Big Bangs". Deviations from the original appear in the form of carbon fiber wrap-around plate, and the blood orange Pro Combat tongue replacing the two-tone version from the original. This model surely transplants the soul (and sole) from the original, but is it better than its predecessor?
