Only a few pairs of the special addition shoes were made and they never made it to the stores. They cost $5,000 at Kickk Spott in Washington, D.C. on December 28, 2012. Nike has worked with Jay Z and Kanye West before on shoes, and with the brother-like relationship that Jay-Z has with LeBron James, it made sense for them to put out a special edition version of the LeBron 9, specifically for the Watch The Throne Tour. Kickk Spott is the only ultra-high end sneaker shop in the area, and the only one that does consignment as well. (Photo by Marvin Joseph/The Washington Post via Getty Images)
