With the revelation of the ‘Cork’ and ‘Denim’ version of the Nike LeBron X, we can only wait in excitement for other lifestyle-centric material applications on a sneaker that’s as teched out as any Nike sneaker has ever been. Cork material and the LeBron X (or any sneaker for that matter) seems like a funky mix, but in a year during which LeBron popped bottles left and right for all his accomplishments, Nike had to go to the next level to make the shoe that much more special. With the replacement of Hyperfuse, the LeBron X ‘Cork’ is noticeably heavier than the Hyperfuse-laden base model, while the material itself is fairly rigid like a fine leather that needs some “breaking in”. In any case, Sneaker News has a detailed gallery of the LeBron X ‘Cork’ below, so check ‘em out and stick with Sneaker News for all your LeBron X updates. Thanks to windycitysole.
Windy City is a nice legit site but some of the prices of them r worst then flight club way over retail
sneakernews tags this corked lebron with sneakernews.com but the non photoshoped reference is windycitysole.com. why?
A CORK SHOE IS JUST A DOPE ASS IDEA. TALK ABOUT THINKING OUT OF THE BOX!! THESE ARE DOPE BUT I SERIOUSLY DON'T I'D BE ABLE TO GET MY HANDS ON A PAIR. I'M 99.9% SURE THESE ARE GOING TO BE A VERY LIMITED RELEASE IF RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC AT ALL
Only bad part about da cork matieral besides fa bein heavy & shit, is over time dat cork will dry out & start to crack & peel... but definitely a dope pair of kicks. Wouldn't cop tho.. now those shoes lebron wore ring night, that's an instant cop fa me
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite Are you seriously that stupid, When did cork become heavy? I suggest if you're finding your cork Af1's a little heavy you should probably head down the gym for a little bit.
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite you dumb as fuck for saying cork is heavy
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite did you just say cork is heavy?
@HeroinSoap ur fuckin dumb. I have corked af1s & u noticeably feel da difference.. so if u out sum regular lebrons on then these u will feel da difference... make sure u know wat ur talkin bout b4 talkin dumb shit
@five_virtus trust me... u put a regular pair of lebrons o & then u put these on, u notice da difference in weight.. I have corked air force ones & they're heavier then regular af1s... so these will be heavier feelin on ya feet. Not like ur carryin fuckin boulders on ya feet but u will feel da weight
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite cork isnt heavy you shithead, are you really that fucking stupid? why do you think everyone is flaming your dumb ass
