There’s no doubt that one of Sneaker News’ Top 30 shoes of 2013 released this past weekend in the Cork-laden LeBron X, but did you know that 21 Mercer released an incredibly limited run (21, to be exact) of the shoes in a special ‘Earned Not Given’ golden package? One lucky recipient is letting his pair go, complete with the gold-finished mirrored outer box, his size 11 Corks, and even the individually numbered card that denotes his unit to be one of just twenty one in existence. These will require a few more dollars that the regular pairs alone, so check out this gallery of perhaps the best packaged LeBron shoe we’ve ever seen and see the full listen from kevineg6 on eBay.
I thought the listing said $499. Coz they didn't cost as much as that RETAIL... and they sure don't cost even retail price to MAKE... sooooo.... thats a LOT of money... for a box? For shoes! Do you carry the box with you to the movies so that people know? "Oooooh, he got the 'special box' Corks...only 21 of those...EVER!" lol. Listings like this give me the shits, coz they just sit there forever never selling, taking up space, making it harder to search for things i actually want. This guys dreaming... must be real young im guessing.
Wow, an EXTREMELY LIMITED edition... of a SUPER LIMITED release. Now i've seen everything! Shits just getting ridiculous. Slap in the face for all the people camping out for days... or paying ridiculous amounts of money, up to 5 x retail price... and they just get the plain cheap brown cardboard box. Even if you were one of the LUCKY ONES, that were even ABLE to have the HONOUR of giving Nike your hard earned money for the privilege to buy their super limited product... you still got screwed! What a joke these days. We're all just pawns.
As if the shoe itself wasn't overhyped enough, they go and add a "Special Package" for 21 Mercer?!?! Can't wait to see how much this packaged version goes for on eBay!
Lames have infiltrated everything . . . . resellers rank right up there with snitches, confidential informants, and Chris Bosh.
I love these shoes but every post pisses me off that much more because they're so limited and I refuse to pay anybody's rape charges
or you could buy the same sneaker for 250usd retail.
i am really wondering how the seller "earned" this.
ALLLLL the Corks should've had this style packaging. I mean IT IS A COMMERATIVE SHOE right? Just sayin'!.......the NSW box is so wack! It would've been nice! .......and for $5000!!! Daaaaaaamn! I hope the box sucks your dick too for all that cheddar. Lol
5 g's I could cop one pair of yeezy's and have enough left over to take a vacation on a cruise I have better things to do with 5 g's than to drop on one sneaker and nothing to show for it. smdh
5 grizz that's outrageous my boy copped these one were and the cork cracked I'm sure nike knows about this defect and just didn't fix it shoe made of cork Wut a bad fuckin idea quality is garbage LMAO
5G????!!!!! Kiss my ass! I can buy lots of kix with that price than this! Very stupid! After paying 5G what? Sits on the closet then what? Waste of money. Wake up people dont be fooled with that box! Lol." Use it or you will loose it"
