The Nike LeBron X is sort of in transition at the moment between all the separate iterations rolling into the stores: the Low, Elite, and NSW among them. The standard model is indeed sticking around though, as evidence by the upcoming Nike LeBron X “Pure Platinum” (Release date May 4th). The sneaker slaps on a sort of digitized speckle look for the upper, one that rivals even the flashy look of the ‘Area 72′ pair as far as graphics go. Continue reading for a more in depth preview of the Nike LeBron X “Pure Platinum”, which releases on May 4th, and join us in the wait for their arrival.
Nike LeBron X
Pure Platinum/Black-Sport Turquoise
They almost seem fake.. they're "factory laced" in the photos but I've never seen a Lebron 10 factory laced like that besides the corks... and the brown Nike box throws it off because its not an EXT model.. they wouldn't sell EXT models for $180. and the toe box seems sketchy if you ask me.
My goodness, Nike should have this "PRISM" while the earlier release should be the "Platinum".
Another epic naming gaffe by Nike.
its so plain at the bottom they should put some speckles on the black part or somthin but the colorways is dope and unique its just the colorway looks so ugly on the lebron x its most liky becuse the lebron x is pretty ugly and a disappointment compared to the 9 and 8 even 7
Me personally, I think the black laces kind of throw it of in my opinion. Should of added some speckle or 3M in the laces to give them a little more pop.
I can't really tell if its an iridescent rainbow effect, or more of a print with different rainbow hues. Either way, it might be too much rainbow for this guy.
@Sneeky naaa mad a prism makes a rainbow these are the "re-entry" / "miami nights"
@AljosaCikojevic naaa you gotta have in hand.... go the extraterestrials blew ma fuckin mind how nice the design.... this year they have had a lot more muted colorways....where are the mangos, cannons, freegums, scarfaces, and so on and so on.
