The Nike LeBron X has two massive colorways coming in February of 2013: the Nike LeBron X ‘All-Star’ and the Nike LeBron X ‘Cork’ shown here. The latter is a bit more groundbreaking what with the Nike Sportswear connection, as the NSW team has crafted up the sneaker as an off-court premium model. Continue reading to get some official shots of the upcoming sneaker and let us know in the comments if you think they’re worth the rather chunky price tag. Also, be sure to make a mental note that the Nike LeBron X ‘Cork’ release date is February 23rd.

I love these joints! Dope concept, Dope shoe, and I can't believe that these would be made without being treated. Yes, they probably will break down a tad quicker than an all leather kick, but I really don't think it will be that big of a deal. The $305 price tag is steep, but for the first time there is some reasoning behind it. (305 Miami area code). Honestly, my only issue would be the hassle of trying to purchase a pair, These might be more limited than any other sneaker seen before. Honestly, the prices we're paying now for all Nike shoes (i.e. $200 for III's and $235 for foams), should've gotten most used to this price hike.
I do not like these at all, to me from the beginning a bad idea, to others who like them you can have them
I hope everyone keeps crying about the price. I might be able too sneak by and get a pair without a hassle.
IFFFFF, any of you buy them, you won't wear them. So the whole quality/durability argument is null. These look so dope.
Definitely not paying $305 for someone to accidently step on them ripping the cork up! Get these dirty and its over! Then gotta worry about the cork dryin up! No go for me!
when it first came out in the news i love it then everyone hate easy cope right... it now in a few months it have a shooting price way over... dude i can't believe the market is so manipulated by the way Nike nice marketing and fuck your the swoosh!
I would really want these, and price isn't the problem. The biggest problem is the cork material isn't gonna make this shoe last. After roughly a year and this 300 dollar sneaker is done for good.
Smh, everyone complaining is going to go crazy trying to cop these. Quit your bitching, these are arguably going to be one of the top 10 shoes this year.
Can't believe y'all are gonna spend dat much on these shits. They will dry out & crack in 2 yrs if u don't take supreme care of them... my Feb is set, Foams & Royal ones, possibly all star KD. Nothin else
Man Nike are the masters of this shit. They did their job. Hyped these up for months and now they're gonna get fools to spend 305 on these ugly ass shits. These want even be popular in a few months.
@guttapunk and?..at least theyll still be there the next day
@Shoes_R_US Foot Lockers getting them..
@gillaginc19 haha good luck with thats
@FoamFanatic lol brah im not hatin on u but lebrons are not overrated theyre actually good looking and unique
Oh, and believe these will sell out. 2013: Even if it's wack (in this case the $300+ price tag), it's gonna sell out.
@CB33 all I keep hearing is how these wont hold up maybe if you actually felt a pair youd know they are durable and treated...
@asshoe are you illiterate, what the fuck are you trying to say???
@SneakerHead1004 Not on my list. I'm staying away from these. Not worth $305 to me.
@Gusto Shouldn't buy sneakers whether they're popular or not man, should just buy what you like.
@Tunjiuana no they are not. Lebrons shoes have suffered since da 7s. Anda da fact dat he jus LETS Nike Do wateva they want wit shoe & put them at unbelievable prices is jus more reason to say his shoes are overrated. And if purchase dis shoe, ur a fool. These shoes will NOT last long & ur tellin Nike u will spend ANY amount for somethin hype & limited. OVERRATED.. I own corked AF1s & they dont last after 18 months & thats wit minimum use. So yall can have these overrated shoes fa an overrated player. #CantBeMikeWhenYouNotEvenKobe (5 Rings)
@John2581 Considering they will re-sell on Ebay for something ridiculous like $1500. The retail $305 price tag issue is void. If these retailed in-store for $600, they would no doubt still be sold out easily. Thats Nikes fault for making a 'good' sneaker, 'limited'... not the kids desperate to pay anything to have the latest hyped thing.
@asdfjkln64 My mistake, I should of said most instead of everybody. But I am still not doubting, most people are going to change their minds, once these release, and most are still going to try to AT LEAST cop them, even if it is to resell.
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite @Foots230 lmao... realest comment here!! well sad Infinite..BTW regardless of the price or material its gonna sell.. its manipulated on hype.. i personally like them just for the design and to the guys saying it wont hold up.... your not even gonna wear them, lace up or shut up.. lmao JK
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite smh....starting to kinda hate ebay. I really wanna knw who comes up with those crack prices
@TheRealMadIce Ok, what's your point?
@yamiyamz @Foots230 hell yea LOL...I mean if u can get them u have a very limited pair of kicks. But I jus think da lebron x's are jus aiiight. But to spend dat much on sum kicks dat won't last long unless u take da up most care of them is jus wild...
@TheMacLikeRoni dudes dat buy into da hype & feel like they shoe game is a symbol of their social status
@Foots230 I kno dudes dat will purposely set an outrageous number to see how many offers they get. They will take da shoes off, put them up a month later & start their bid in around da same price dat they were offered. So most of those numbers jus come out da ass to see if they can get a dudes dat doesn't kno any better...
@NewSneakerScent Bitch please. And I don't collect shoes for the record, I wear them. If your statement were even remotely true by the way, I would be all about this ugly ass shoe as well as all the other ugly ass LeBron X's that dropped. You sound like one of those pink foam fags anyway.
@Gusto @TheRealMadIce Look here mc busto dont give 2 shits about this shoe or you for that matter...sound like u buildn your collection off hype&others opinions..smdh
@Gusto @TheRealMadIce his point is stop dick riding the wave&sport what u like not what everybody else like...dipshit
