Nike LeBron X EXT “Cork”

Since the LeBron line was first introduced in 2003, the retail price for each successive model has increased by small margins. Model by model, the increase might be easily overlooked, but if you compare Air Zoom Generation to LeBron X, that’s an 82% jump – and we’re only comparing the base model. In comes the Nike LeBron X “Cork” – a visual spectacle that has no other practical purpose than being laced up on feet, but pretty much breaks the mold of what a basketball shoe is supposed to be.

Supported by an incredible ‘cork’ material upper and accented by fine brown leather on the tongue and inner lining, the Cork LeBrons come in at a jaw-dropping $305 MSRP – that’s roughly an increase of 173% in dollars needed. Obviously the increase in price is proportionate to LeBron’s status as arguably the most popular player int he NBA, but is $305 stretching it? We’ve got a detailed gallery that’ll sway your decision towards “yes”, so take a look through the gallery and give us your opinion on the matter – they’re releasing in just two weekends.

The Nike LeBron X has two massive colorways coming in February of 2013: the Nike LeBron X ‘All-Star’ and the Nike LeBron X ‘Cork’ shown here.

Nike LeBron X “Cork” – Detailed Photos

The Kobe 8 EXT is strong in red suede, a KD V colorway would have tremendous potential and there are plenty of other LeBron 10s that rank high on the neck-breaking scale.  But given the wholly novel approach to cutting edge performance plus impeccable style represented by the Nike LeBron X EXT ‘Cork’, one could argue this is the most impressive of the Nike Basketball x Sportswear lifestyle editions.  It’s unquestionably one of the standout sneakers released or previewed so far in 2013 and accordingly, you can expect to reach into the four-figure range when checking out early eBay listings.  Time will tell where this leather tongue and laced, cork-uppered Quickstrike ranks amongst the greatest Nike LeBron releases of all time, and with a February 23rd release date reported for select Asian retailers, you’ll want to stick with Sneaker News to see if that date holds here in the US.

Roughly a month left before the Nike LeBron X ‘Cork’ releases in store, but with Twitter RSVPs and online raffles in place, we can safely bet that the pandemonium for these won’t be as nearly as chaotic as the Foamposite Galaxy release of last year. It would’ve had a cooler effect had Nike released a ‘Cork’-type release right as the Heat won an NBA title, but there’s no doubt that these will be one of the most coveted releases of the year (and guaranteeing a LeBron X to make a repeat appearance in our Top 30 of 2013. Are these the best LeBron X releases thus far? Check out the new gallery below and let us know.

Is the ‘Cork’ LeBron the greatest LeBron of all-time? It could be, but it’s definitely not the first to have that off-the-court style. The LeBron shoe with that title goes back all the way to 2004, when Nike released the special ‘All-Star’ colorway of the Nike Air Zoom Generation. Things sure have changed in ten years, since got from wheat nubuck to cork and premium leather, and there’s no doubt that this 2/23 release will go down as one of the best of the year. Take a look at this incredible release below and check out the entire listing from memori3z1123 on eBay.

Nike LeBron X “Cork” – Available on Nike Elite

December 30th, 2012 by | 29 comments

So there are two things that need some explanation in this latest update of LeBron news. First off – the much-anticipated Nike Sportswear-designed “Cork” colorway of Nike LeBron X hit a release, but only on NikeElite.com. So what is NikeElite.com? It’s a online web-store exclusively for Nike-sponsored athletes, so unless you have the Swoosh brand outfitting you directly, then you probably can’t even access what’s on the site. In any case, this is just one more indication that the Cork LeBrons will eventually release, so stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates and if you want to ensure your pair, see what’s available now on eBay.
