What does your Christmas wish list look like right now? Pretty much every year around that time us sneakerheads have quite a lot to consider, with the season most recently being anchored by a crop of holiday themed releases from Nike Basketball. Last year’s group was particularly special what with the lockout coming to an end so the 2012 group certainly has its work cut out for it. While this Nike LeBron X is likely just the ‘Cutting Jade’ colorway cast in an alternate light, it would still register as a pretty sick Christmas drop given the Grinch style combo. Click through to check out the Nike LeBron X ‘Cutting Jade’ with us and stick with Sneaker News for more info on all upcoming Nike LeBron X colorways.
Wow... all of a sudden everybody is on the Lebron X... looks like nobody cares anymore about the $315.00 retail price... Illuminike has done it again...
Lebron XI is gonna be $325.00 next year... all they gotta do is put some Patent leather & call it an XI and everynbody will be lining up to give Illuminike that paper...
10's starting to Heat Up! They gon do numbers like the 9's did. All the frowns are starting to turn into smiles lol. Get your money ready!
Yeah they will have to come up with Eye catching colorways... That's the only thing they have in compensating for how much the overall design sucks... I still feel the same way after seeing first Lebron X pics.. Garbage then, garbage now... easy passing on these...
These are sweeeet, they r like the grinch kobe 6s. I like these better than floridians home and away.
The color ways of these are really sick but the overall design of the X is wack.
Gotta see em in person. When's the first pair dropping retail in US?
If you say these ain't hard your hating I'm sorry. We all said they was gon be ugly at first but the color ways keep getting better. The South Beach is gonna be ridiculous. Its prolly gonna be pink.
These bitches are live. Best cw of the X so far. It's crazy how many cw of this shield are already been shown without an official release date of the 1st pair
@Sneakerhead2320 plus is 315 non plus is 180 get your facts don't believe the hype-public enemy
@Sneakerhead2320 Lmfao @ Illuminike
@Sneakerhead2320 Yeah man. I guess for me, I'll just be admiring pictures because if the tag is set at 300+ Im watching from the sideline. If money wasnt an issue maybe yes, but unfortunately it is for me and I would rather use it for a better cause.
@trianglechokevt Me neither i was wondering why they messed up the shoe like that.
@heat_meiser October 13
@Sneakerhead2320 @AkPifstar @ABoog Im surpisise yall guys didnt peep that there is no nike+ on bottom of the heal. These for goin for 180. So the notion that all the good CW,are gonna be saved for the nike+ is just speculation.
@AkPifstar @ABoog I know what you mean, but man I wish I lived where you do, where I live, Only 1 store got the Elite series both the Home & away sold out in 1/2 day here.. They only got 8 pairs of taxi's & there was a campout line for those. There was a campout line for the "Miami Vice/ SB" colorway. & they only got 24 pairs of course they sold out..
They did get a restock of the Taxi's but didn't tell customers so they were sold out as soon as they opened the box. Now they only got 1 pair of size 8 taxi's sitting on the wall...
And we ain't talking about no mom & pop store.. this is one of the 3 big major shoe stores ( I don't count Finishline in my area cause they don't get no heat here where I live)
@Sneakerhead2320 @ABoog I feel you and they only camped for the Vice City Elite's All the other Elites i can literally cop in Jimmy Jazz right now for Retail or Sale price... But I def understand what your saying. But trust they're will be DOPE Colorways for the X's 180$ Version
Lets take a look back Christmas Colorway = Dope
Freegums = Cool
ASG's/Big Bangs??? = Dopest 9 Colorway Elite or not
Dunkman/Swingman/Lake Summit = Smooth Colorways
Now theres only the Taxi and Vice City Elite Colorways that were dope all other Elites were not worth it.... I dont know Bro i will not be paying 315 Retail for a Sneaker that has a technology that i will never use. It's simply backwards to me
But Nike will make make all the hottest colorways in the Nike + version, if you don't believe me just look at this past year. The South Beach CW was only offered is the $250 Elite remember how everybody cried about that pricetag..
But I didnt see nobody complaining about the price when they released.. as a matter a fact I saw lines of people camping out..
