So there are two things that need some explanation in this latest update of LeBron news. First off – the much-anticipated Nike Sportswear-designed “Cork” colorway of Nike LeBron X hit a release, but only on NikeElite.com. So what is NikeElite.com? It’s a online web-store exclusively for Nike-sponsored athletes, so unless you have the Swoosh brand outfitting you directly, then you probably can’t even access what’s on the site. In any case, this is just one more indication that the Cork LeBrons will eventually release, so stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates and if you want to ensure your pair, see what’s available now on eBay.
Nike LeBron X “Cork”
Color: Classic Brown/University
It doesn't have to be a directly sponsored athlete, it can be a nike sponsored school program, like a small college or something. Nike gives you an allowance to spend and access to products, it could be coaches of a program. its all about being exclusive to Nike. There was a write up on a hacker who figured out Nikes system and stole a shit ton of gear... Nike cut the dude a deal on the charges if he helped them patch holes in the site.
another fucking shoe that noone gets unless they trade 10 pairs of sneakers or work a month for to pay a reseller...
never really liked this colorway but wat the hell does a nike sponsored athlete need an account to buy shoes i thought they got them for free
I think the eBay seller is full of sh@t charging $2,500 for a "pre-sale", and saying the shoe will release within 30 days. BS. They're selling a maybe, and they don't even have the item in hand already.
I'm not a huge fan, but the materials are making me think its damn time for a premio bin23 drop again, and one I can actually get for retail lol. Namely the 3s or 4s
Gettin these to resell, not even gonna lie. They'll retail for 305$ and resell for atleast 500$ so it's an easy 200$ :) so y'all can keep these ugly ass kicks and ill go get me some more air maxs lbvs
@inTheNameofQuen Exactly, Nike might send em some socks, shirts and shorts but if they want more then Hyperdunks, Nike wants some peso from em.
@JManSam that would be sick, so would a premio VI , X or XII.
@NewbombedTurk 95? more like 99%
@NewbombedTurk My thoughts exactly......thanks SneakerNews
@AlexGottKicks Lame. A mark-up of $195 on a $305 sneaker hardly seems like a comeup. Try harder.
@AronRodriguez @Fosterakahunter Y'all hate on me all you want Idc. Y you mad cus u ride nikes dick like a roller coaster, and complain about every little thing but still cop the kick? You think they're gonna change when your still payin? Fuckin idiots LBVVVFS
@AlexGottKicks quit saying "lbvs" you goofy hipster faggot
@inTheNameofQuen @Fosterakahunter @DominicD na I don't have a nikeelite account, I never said I did. But these are clearly going to release for all you thirsty nike/jordan brand dick riders willing to pay anything for a kick that doesn't even cost nike 1/10th of what your paying. Your getting played!
