In a piece of Sneaker News that sparked some serious discussion, we welcomed a brave new world yesterday where basketball sneakers’ price ceiling extend beyond the $300 plateau. We’re talking, of course, about not just any average design, but rather a model whose Nike+integrated version can lay claim to the most advanced roundball design of all-time: the Nike LeBron X. The shoe that commemorates LeBron’s ascension to championship form celebrates ten years of the Swoosh’s longest running signature series and James’ second gold medal, and brings us top of the line performance and data tracking the likes of which are echoed by the ‘Diamond Collection’ treatment on the inner tongue and jewel-like faceted Swooshes, crowns and lacelocks. That last detail reinforces that when you ‘Watch the Throne’ come November, all eyes will be on King James and his incredible LeBron Xs; are ready for the next big thing in basketball? The LeBron X Plus has begun to hit retailers in China, where LeBron is currently on tour, so stay tuned for more updates and a firm U.S. release date here on Sneaker News.
