The much hinted at Mache Nike LeBron X custom for LeBron James is here at last. The sneaker sports an Ironman 3 inspired colorway as per the personal request of King James. The entirety of the pair has yet to be revealed, but for now we know that they come with chrome sections, plenty of gold splashed into the colorway, custom Stark Enterprise tongue tags, and a super duty carrying case to hold the precious sneaker. Check out more on the Nike LeBron X ‘Ironman 3’ custom by Mache that LeBron had him whip up after the jump and stay tuned should more images pop up.
The shoes are awesome, but somebody at Nike has got to be kicking themselves for letting this happen. Lebron can get any cw he wants and he goes to Mache for a custom. Thats insane to allow a signature athlete make such a public spectacle of a pair of custom shoes made for him by a guy who has no ties to Nike. This guy was doing numbers before... i can only imagine now.
1. They would need rights, which costs money.
2. Because they are not as good as Mache.
@IgotthatFIRE ...'cheesy' means 'cool' right?
@kutsum It'll be more interesting to see how Marvel comes down on these. They previously requested two other customizer's ,whose Iron Man themes got lots of attention, to remove images, stop selling/promoting..and cease & desists if I'm not mistaken. With these being for someone of such high stature....no way Marvel is happy.
Ageed, not the most creative- but his skill level is way up there.
