Remember back when the price of the Nike LeBron X was first revealed and the mainstream media started to pick up on the growing cost concerns for basketball sneakers? As it turns out sneaker-loving folk like ourselves are absolutely willing to shell out that kind of cash just as long as the proof is in the pudding. Shown here is the Nike LeBron X exposed in all its tech fueled design, the sneaker being dissected and opened up to the nth degree. Click through for the complete breakdown and let us know if you think the Nike LeBron X is worth the price tag now that you know what the guts look like.

Turn to page 5 and look at the 7th row (My Teacher voice) and look how thick that foam is at the buttom of the shoe! now do that to one of this Retro Jordans and see what you get lol
the shoes doesn't look bad afterall, these materials make these performance shoes lighter and durable(unless you play outdoor..on concrete)
would be weird see these shoes made all of suede or tumbled leather like a lot of shoes from 20 years ago were made, it's too simple say the shoes are plastic..not worth the money.. of course the material don't cost retail price ..but allmost everything is overpriced if you look at what it's made of
I wish they did this more often. I could care less what the break down cause it their money and i want to see what i'm paying for. Thanks for digging deep.
Always been a fan of the Air Falcons. How would these look dissected? http://refer.ly/aapx
people need to stop making gas masks and dissecting shoes. look i realize that the mask is "art" and the dissection is just trying to show what the shoe is made out of. and i don't mean to sound like a cliche but someone could be wearing those right now....
@KevinEarnhardt this pair is $180.. & yet you have the $170 LBJ 9 in your profile pic which they only improved on for the 10... if this is plastic so are those 9's
@boogieblind lebron is actually a big guy he needs a heavier shoe
Do you own a pair or even tried a pair on? It's definitely not too heavy. LeBron plays in them, so how would they be too heavy for a performance basketball shoe?? Lighter doesn't make it better in any instance. It all depends on the type of player you are
Ummm every shoe is over priced. You think the company is going to sell it to you for what it took them to make it? Houses are over priced, cars are over priced, food is over priced. Ppl have to make their bottom line, Nike just does it better than most
@LiamTheVillain exactly and these idiots are just gnna eat it up and call it overpriced when this 10 only costs $10 more retail than the 8s did
@DavidRomero At least they paid for it I guess, so it's not a total waste.
@DavidRomero Why would you care what someone else does with a pair of their own shoes? This is informational.
