New Nike LeBron X Sneaker Photo, Release Date: New $315 Kicks
The New LeBron James Sneakers Will Be Worth $315. Here are LeBron X Photos and Info on a Possible Release Date
LeBron James is having a good year. In the last four months or so, he won his first NBA title and his second Olympic gold medal. Now his name will be attached to one of the most expensive sneakers Nike has ever produced. The new LeBron X will cost $315. James himself won the LeBron X sneaker during the gold medal game at the London Olympics.
The new LeBron X is substantially more expensive than LeBron's last shoe, which retailed for about $175. It's even more expensive than Kanye West's recent sneaker, the Air Yeezy 2 which sold for about $245.
How is Nike justifying the cost for the new LeBron James X sneaker? They say it includes Nike+ technology that can track your workout and features "the same Hyperfuse construction of the LeBron 9's." They've also given practical reasons for the cost bump, which includes a rise in materials and labor.
