As the USA takes on Spain in the Olympic Gold Medal game this morning, LeBron James has left his Lunar Hyperdunks in the locker room, electing instead to debut the Nike LeBron X to the world. We’ve seen a few peeks at LeBron’s 10th signature Nike shoe, but with the whole world watching King James go for gold in London, what better time to officially unveil the shoe than with the stage so big and the lights so bright. Alongside LeBron wearing the shoe for the gold medal game, Nike has shared some crisp images of the upcoming LeBron X, shown in the same USA colorway seen on court today, but with a gold Swoosh replacing the red one seen on Bron’s pair. The LeBron X will break new ground by incorporating by a whopping four-piece of Nike performance technology – using Flywire and Hyperfuse construction on the upper, Nike+ capabilities and the first ever visible full length Zoom unit. Check out more pics and info after the jump and stay tuned for much more on the Nike LeBron X coming soon.

The Nike LeBron 9 has been such a major success and it’s actually quite shocking that there are still a few major releases on their way. With this weekend’s Varsity Maize and the early-June ‘Miami Vice’ releases ending the LeBron 9 chapter on a high-note (unless there are more Elites scheduled), some sneakerheads and LeBron loyalists are already looking toward the LeBron X and the possible game-changing materials and architecture that will set the series to new heights. These early catalog sneak peeks reveals a number of elements – Hyperfuse, visible Zoom Air (talk about a long-time coming), and thick Flywire cables like the ones seen in the upcoming Nike Lunar Hyperdunk+ (remind you of that prototype sample from last September?). Will the LeBron X feature Nike+ Basketball technology? How expensive will the shoe be? Can we count on another South Beach/Miami Vice colorway? Expectations are certainly high for Nike’s longest-running signature series since the Jordan, so for now, tickle your appetite with these teasers below and let’s get the conversation going: What could Jason Petrie bring to the table with the LeBron X that we haven’t seen yet?
