Nike LeBron X Elite “Superhero”
The Nike LeBron X Elite will release on April 27th along with rest of the Nike Basketball Elite 2.0 series. The sneaker is the only one amongst the upcoming group that we’ve been able to preview ahead of today’s massive unveil, so Sneaker News readers should already have a decent idea of what the silhouette looks like. The post-season model sticks to the diamond theme by playing off the Carbonado stone, a diamond that is apparently nigh-indestructible. Take a look at the Nike LeBron X Elite “Superhero”, release date April 27th, after the jump and tell us in the comments which of the upcoming trio you like the most.
Update: Nike has changed the release date, and the Nike Basketball Elite Series is now releasing April 27th.

LEBRON X PS ELITE: Unstoppable Power
Forged by time, heat and pressure, the diamond inspires LeBron James’s tenth Nike signature shoe. His elite version drafts off the rare Carbonado diamond, a virtually indestructible stone said to derive from an ancient supernova, the most explosive force in the universe. The shoe’s bright citrus colorway and graphic collar lining capture James’s unstoppable power.
The LEBRON X PS ELITE is designed to be stronger, offering the highest level of performance for James in the post season. The shoe builds on the innovative advances of the LEBRON X and takes it to a new level with:
- Carbon fiber-reinforced mid-foot wings for excellent lateral stability
- Kevlar® aramid-reinforced Nike Flywire technology for consistent lock-down through the midfoot
- Kevlar® aramid laces resist stretching for a more consistent fit
- Articulated foam tongue provides impact protection and minimizes lace pressure
The carbon fiber looks glued on, how is that going to give you stability.... Seriously it looks like you can peel that shit off!
Out Of All The Elite 2.0's This Seem To Be The Most Improved, Waiting To See The "Taxi" Colorway SB Too
Those side panels look as if they are just ready to peel off if stepped upon, even in a less than reasonable fashion.
Why are these not Nike + Elites ? Some one dropped the ball in the corporate offices. Is Nike even listening to it's consumer?
The LBJ X is already the most comfortable shoe I've ever hooped in. But I'm not feeling the Elites as much. Like with the LBJ 9 to the 9 Elite was a big visual overhaul and called for a $70 increase in price. These aren't worth what they are probably going to charge
