Nike LeBron X “Jade”
With the Olympic Games going down this year, the new LeBron X signature model sorta broke the tradition of a ‘China’-first introduction, as the ‘USA’ Nike LeBron X Plus was the first to be broadcast to the world. The ‘China’ edition is expected to follow, so here it is – the Nike LeBron X ‘Jade’; it featured a tonal Jade green upper, paying tribute to the country’s prized stone. Paired with the green are red/black details on the tongue, midsole, and laces. These are currently reported as a China-exclusive, but like last year’s Nike LeBron 9 ‘Blue Flame/China’, a limited run may happen in the States! Take another look below and stay tuned for more of the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Jade’ - we’d love to hear your opinions!

Can you imagine the Lacelock on this pair..... You know these will be Nike+ technology, but Nike won't even have to ask for your $315.00 plus tax.. Everybody will be lining up to give it to them, no questions asked..
In my honest opinion, I think these are the nicest Xs yet.... but I really would rather replace the red with black. I understand the combo considering he's wearing it in China, but that color combination just looks like Christmas to me, regardless of the shade of green.
On Foot these look even better ,a bit too close to the shape/look of the 8's for me, but just different enough looking forward to the creative CWs
@JahRemyKluminati I agree but I'm sure they have a 2nd pair. They're just not that interesting to me. I'd like to see a second color too like the cannons, maybe other shades of green.
@svks this is not even close to a South Beach colorway... if anything it's Christmas like Jigs said below
@JahRemyKluminati Black sole, eyestay and tonge with a greenish upper is exactly a South Beach colourway, the only thing missing is the pink laces. The Christmas colourway is red with green laces, I don't know where you got that
@Jigs sorry that was meant for the south beach comment not you
@svks jade is nothing like south beach tropical teal...just say you dont like the colorway..
@JahRemyKluminati Well, but that most definitely is more of a South Beach green than a Christmas green. Or maybe just a bad picture
@svks "Paired with the green are red/black details on the tongue, midsole, and laces."
it is a RED sole on this shoe first of all2nd of all, since when does Christmas have to automatically refer to the "specific colorway they use for LeBrons"... have you forgotten it's a holiday?
The only reason why LeBron uses the red shoe/green lace combination during Christmas is because the main color on the uniform for both the Cavs and the Heat is RED.
