The Kobe 8 EXT is strong in red suede, a KD V colorway would have tremendous potential and there are plenty of other LeBron 10s that rank high on the neck-breaking scale. But given the wholly novel approach to cutting edge performance plus impeccable style represented by the Nike LeBron X EXT ‘Cork’, one could argue this is the most impressive of the Nike Basketball x Sportswear lifestyle editions. It’s unquestionably one of the standout sneakers released or previewed so far in 2013 and accordingly, you can expect to reach into the four-figure range when checking out early eBay listings. Time will tell where this leather tongue and laced, cork-uppered Quickstrike ranks amongst the greatest Nike LeBron releases of all time, and with a February 23rd release date reported for select Asian retailers, you’ll want to stick with Sneaker News to see if that date holds here in the US.

Getting these with hopefully that 30% off will make the price more bearable. If I paid that $225(?) retail for the LB4 Birthday pack, the price on this pair shouldn't hurt too much, but it'll surely sting...
Anyone else get upset with the fact that Asia, China more specifically, gets all of the rare releases sometimes just exclusively over seas? I understand that they are produced over there but come on Nike/JB, your athletes play ball in the USA! We want some of these hard to get releases too.
Held a wear test sample and they are really nice. Only complaint i had was on inside padding (sockliner) being thin. Hopefully that will change, it was a wear test sample.
@FoamFanatic who said ?they do wear test them first..And they obviously passed the test as theyve gone into production.
@KevinHeat yes they are
@Dj Larry Montana the reason for the price is the construction of materials not the hype..
@TheRealMadIce bigger market.. more money to make
@NickBartzis let the hate consume you
@KingGoldThing preciate it..but I don't have 305 for these..just too much mane
