19. Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite "Home" 

Year: 2012 

Nike has done a great job doing more with less for their athletes after a grueling season, and the 2012 playoff kicks for LeBron might be the best ones yet. The accents on the branding set them off and unlike the previous few seasons they didn't strip too much off the sneaker and make it look like another Hyper-whatever GR. The $250 pricetag is steep, but you get a lot.
