The folks who read this site on the regular were those no doubt most numb to the initial info that the Nike LeBron X+ complete with the Sport Pack gear would be a shoe tipping the scales at just over $300. Once the mainstream media blew the story up a bit, Nike seemed to have taken notice, with word arriving that the new bar would be set at $290. The latest news from the mouth of Nike spokesman Brian Strong is that the Nike LeBron X+ (Sport Pack and all) will be available at a retail price of $270, with the option available to pick up the sneakers by themselves sans all the Nike+ gear for $200, making it so the folks who are going in on multiple colorways don’t have all the extra doo-dads lying around and are left with a sizable chunk of cash in their pockets. Also the non-plus versions will of course be in the mix as well with the pricing there being $180. Let us know in the comments if this reworked pricing structure makes you more likely to cop and stick with us for when the Nike LeBron X+ officially arrives. And if you wanna pick up a pair early, then check out this USA version available now from westside0202 on eBay.
