Today’s groundbreaking release of the Nike LeBron X+ ‘Crown Jewel’ came with a special surprise – a luxurious packaging fit for a king. Featuring a Bordeaux red chiseled case with each shoe carefully ensconced inside delicate felt bags, the ‘Crown Jewel’ of the LeBron X stands as the perfect introduction to the tenth chapter of the Nike LeBron saga – one that could eventually rival the Air Jordan as the greatest signature shoe line of all-time. We’ve got a detailed look at this insane packaging as well as more detailed viewings of the shoe, so check out the gallery below and chime in with your thoughts on this amazing introductory release. If you were not lucky enough to find these at retail, osneaker and eBay is your next best bet.
I think the color is a nice change of pace, but would never pay over $300.00 for a sneaker. Funny how the box is no big deal and ugly to some but when most people on this site found out the 11's are looking like its a regular new Jordan box its a big problem. So are boxes important or not? I can give 2 S%!ts myself. Girl colorway? Now the aunt pearls were a girl colorway, not these.
C'Mon son...first thing springs to mind when i see the pink on the sole and that little case... It's a shoe for pansies...
Weak effort by Nike...
These things are ugly as all hell. But Hype will feed the beast and the resellers will have a money stuffing field day with these eye sores.
THIS S#!T LOOKS LIKE POLLY POCKET!!..I QUESTION ALOT OF YOU "DUDES" ON HERE WHEN YA SAY YES TO EVERYTHING
Just some extra BS to justify the hefty price tag. I mean, who really gone walk around with the box in hand?
The packaging is dope, but idk bout the colors on the shoe. Nike is killing me with these colors they love 2 put on dude kicks lol. I bet these will b reselling 4 $1000 b4 the night is over.
I actually wanted these on pure looks alone regardless of that h word that rhymes with type, but sucks I live nowhere near none of those release locations, and I'm not shelling out rent's worth bread on resell
@Dezfriednutz are you high right now???-- lmao the box looks so cheap and nike is only doing this to justify the price tag
not only that,it looks like the box that the barbies and the limo came in from the xmas gift i got my niece last year!!!
