Following that selective rollout this weekend, the Nike LeBron X ‘Cork’ finally has a real release date for the general public. On top of that it’s got a beautiful set of official images that you have you lusting over the sneaker at new levels. The Nike LeBron X ‘Cork’ is set to be a trailblazer for the way it re-appropriates the high tech basketball sneaker into more of a lifestyle shoe via the Nike Sportswear label, reworking the materials and construction in doing so. Get the full look at the Nike LeBron X ‘Cork’ in our HD gallery and be advised that the release date is set for Saturday, February 23rd, 2013.
Nike LeBron X
Classic Brown/Classic Brown-University
I want these but not because of the hype. I think it's a dope shoe (nothing I've seen before). And I have 2 other pair of LeBron Xs. But I'm not camping out, paying over retail, or losing sleep over these
This is strictly a reseller shoe. Nike keeps emphasizing the shoe is NOT for athletic use. Get real people, if the shoe is made of cork, its going to massively crease and crack with normal wear and foot sweat. But hey, if I get my hands on a pair and folks are dumb enough to pay my price, oh well! lol.
Hope these come out as a low in the spring. They say these are for casual wear, then why make them extra high tops.
the only X's im even considering getting... and my birthday is in feb so ill be saving all the money i get
Im only going to buy these if they are limited. They re-sell for over $2000, so i will get some. When they riot for these, how many in the US do you think will get killed for them by the poor african american folks. I reckon at LEAST 17 victims over these SHOES. Gonna be fun trying to cop. Im camping out NOW! (lol)
stfu all you people that act like they aren't going to cop. These will probably be the best shoes of the year, and the quality I heard is outstanding. All of you are going to be running around like a chicken with no head once these drop.
Considering the materials used to make this shoe I wouldn't expect it to be under 270$ but sheesh lol
Should of droped these new years... still pretty fine looking shoe but i rather buy 2 kicks with that money
The only Lebron X that I want. Not only is it overpriced, but garunteed overhyped as well. Great job Nike •_•
@Buster_Himen lol who did you hear this from? because either you and/or your source is an idiot. the corks are gonna be the most limited lebron shoe ever sold, right up there with yeezys and galaxys
@ZoOYoRkR its already been said that the shoe was not for performance, its meant to be worn casually. I'm sure the shoe won't fall apart off a person foot from normal wear. And wear some socks if ur worried about sweat, LOL
@caseyflinders The African American's are the ones that are going to kill other's for these? So..., where do you reside?
@caseyflinders You sound a little bitter at life, a sad troll. Since you like to research so much check out "Hidden Colors" its even on Youtube it will change your day I promise.
@caseyflinders was that an attempt to be funny?
@SneakerHead1004 I wanna see everyone RIOT! Screw anyone that gets in your way!
@OtegzTegzTegz u are whats wrong with the industry
@OtegzTegzTegz I'm getting 10! ....@ $2K a piece. Gonna buy me a Mercedes Benz after!
@J crack thank u
@J crack I think you mean Sneakernews. Nike dont need to publicise ANY of their releases. And they DON'T. Same as there has been a post a day for the "RETURN OF NIKE AIR!!!!"
@Tennessee1257 You act like you are selecting something that is over-priced, which would mean that others are not? ALL Nike is overpriced. All their factories are off-shore in Asia. Paying kids $1 a day to make them for you. If they cost $25 a shoe to make, they sell them to you for $190, you don't think they are overpriced... but if they cost $25 and sell them to you for $305, they ARE now? All Nike is over-priced. Support NB who are struggling to support YOUR American workers, by making shoes in factories IN AMERICA. Probably costing them $70 to make a shoe they then sell for $130. Is THAT over-priced? Otherwise they too will go off-shore to Asia. And it won't be long till China RULES US ALL.
Both of u are just idiots. BUSTER, & John Garrity, yeezy & galaxy's were not the most limited shoe Nike ever released. It was the hypebeasts that made it seam that way. Plenty of times stuff came out, 1-2 size runs at HOH Harlem. This will not be a GR. good luck getting them. U both just sound so stupid.
@caseyflinders get off my nuts. It's obvious that you didn't understand the comment that I clearly stated the shoe is over priced and over hyped, emphasis on "OVER HYPED." I know how much the manufacture to sale ratio is overly inflated. Who doesnt know that ALL Nike products are overpriced?! Therefore take head of what's called sarcasm which is what my comment is.

@Joe_Jang @ZoOYoRkR you shouldn't even compare LeBron Xs to Jordans, especially the paint on some 3s & for 4s on the midsole, the shoe is still wearable it just has cracks in them. If your gonna compare these to anything compare it to another LeBron X. True its cork, but just take care of it as others would do with suede, leather, etc. Type of shoes, they dnt have to be sneakers. So to answer your question, yes they will hold up. I have shoes from 2006 that are still wearable
@OtegzTegzTegz @phillybis not saying you dont have the right to, but your ruining it for many people out there. its kinda like driving a car. you have the right to everything about it. but it would be so much better to ride a bike for short distances instead of polluting everything haha
@caseflinders And FYI, only a small percentage of New Balance shoes are made in the good ol US of A. They're mostly safety toed shoes and work shoes. Do your homework rookie
