This past weekend’s pivotal release of the Nike LeBron X ‘Cork’ gave consumers just a taste of Nike Basketball’s capabilities of transforming a high-tech sneaker into a polished lifestyle shoe, but it appears that Nike already has an entree waiting to be served up in the kitchen. Here’s a first look at the Nike LeBron X NSW Lifestyle Sample; it feature a true lifestyle mid-top silhouette (like a Blazer) with laser-etched lines on the upper and ventilated areas that give the sneaker a LeBron X spirit. Built with a brown leather upper and supported by a unique midsole with ridged walls and the LeBron lion logo on the heel, the this LeBron X NSW Lifestyle Sample exudes that grown-up nature that was first initiated with the Nike LeBron Sportswear capsule that debuted in 2011. The insole also features a special label that reads ‘Virescit Vulnere Virtus’ – a Latin phrase that has anchored the LeBron NSW Collection since its launch. Continue on for a full detailed gallery of this exciting sample and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates regarding a potential release, and check out the entire listing from wowfactor101 on eBay.
It seems as if Nike is treating Lebron like Mike and preparing him to branch off to have his own branding. IMO. Not really feeling these

@DreamChaser haha they look like blazers so something a little over $100 usd. not bad but nike is trying a little bit hard to get as much money from one design (lebron x)
@JohnGarrity real leather? laser cut? more like heat cut with chinese wok in factories.
nice sneakers for sure, but for $250 that's higher then the actual shoe wouldn't make sense m8
