First, there were Air Jordans, when everyone wanted to “Be Like Mike”. Now there’s the Nike Lebron 9 Elite Home ($250), now that everyone wants to “Be Congeneric to LeBron…generic” (admittedly not as catchy as Be Like Mike). The shoes are flashy but functional, much like LeBron’s playstyle: black and white with gold trimmings and a golden flake outsole, all adorned with the gold Nike swoosh. Structurally, the shoes are reinforced with carbon fiber, padded collars, and Kevlar uppers when deranged fans want to take pot shots at your ankles. Wear these bad boys and (minus two decades of practice and being gifted with genetic superpowers), you’ll totally Be Congeneric to LeBron…generic.
