Getting your $270 (plus tax, where applicable) ready for the debut release of the Nike LeBron X? This Saturday, Nike Basketball will roll out the red carpet for the tenth Bron-tagged sig with a dazzling colorway dubbed the ‘Crown Jewel’, so we’ve decided to compile a quick list of all the release locations for this highly-anticipated sneaker release that has been trending not only in sneaker news blogs, but in sports media as well. As of now, select NikeTown locations and five Foot Locker House of Hoops spots (both Manhattan spots, Beverly Hills, Dadeland Mall in Miami, and North Riverside Park Mall in North Riverside, IL) will have these in stock.
