Nike LeBron X+ “United We Rise” Packaging
Yesterday Sneaker News showed you a special edition version the Nike LeBron X Plus packaged in a White/Gold box that was released in very limited quantities during a LeBron James in-store appearance in China. We bring you another detailed look at this amazing set-up, which features quite a collection of USA-specific detailing, like the official 2012 Team USA Basketball logo above the inspirational ‘United We Rise’ and a smoky shoe encasing on the inside of the box with LeBron’s head-shot. Featuring the Nike+ Technology, a chiseled lion lace-lock in gold, and the USA Flag on the medial heel of the shoe, this $315 sneaker has set records for Nike Basketball pricing, but is it worth the money? LeBrons will only continue to rise in popularity if he continues his winning ways, so behold the detailed gallery below and let us know what you think of Nike potentially raising prices higher for future Nike Basketball releases. If you’re willing to throw down the cash for these new LeBrons, get ‘em now on eBay.
Judging by all the comments below, majority of folks are not really feelin LeBron X's.Well put me in the minority cause really fucks with these heavy. Most people hate em + Me really likin the sneaker = EASY COP.
Pffft what a joke! $315? GTFOH, They slap some tacky Gold on the shoe and put a fancy box together and they reckon these should go for $315? Wonder how much it cost to actually put the shoe together.... Nowhere near that figure i would say! If this was any other brand doing this, they would be laughed out of town... But since it's Nike, they are getting a free pass at doing B.S like this...
They should just release EVERYTHING on Ebay. Cut out the middle man. Maybe even NIKE could have their OWN re-selling Ebay Store?
You know the Lebron X is absolutely hideous dont you? I have no idea why you keep posting about them. In ANY colorway. Maybe a limited number hyped up bright neon colorway might sell to a few of these 'sneakerheads'... but thats about it. The LBJ line peaked on the 9, lost its way on the 9 Low, and died on the 10th. Unless you like triangles and shapes randomly whacked on your kicks for no reason.
Trust me people complaining about the price.. but they showed that Jade colorway & everybody is saying there coppin' You know that alot of the Hottest colorways are going to be Nike+ only.. Thats a given..
When the "Miami Night colorway or South Beach colorway or All Star colorway release in Nike+ version only... We'll see how many line ups & camp outs take place.
For $315, they will look best sitting on shelves or in windows at your local Nike retailer. They won't be on my feet.
