This past weekend’s pivotal release of the Nike LeBron X ‘Cork’ gave consumers just a taste of Nike Basketball’s capabilities of transforming a high-tech sneaker into a polished lifestyle shoe, but it appears that Nike already has an entree waiting to be served up in the kitchen. Here’s a first look at the Nike LeBron X NSW Lifestyle Sample; it feature a true lifestyle mid-top silhouette (like a Blazer) with laser-etched lines on the upper and ventilated areas that give the sneaker a LeBron X spirit. Built with a brown leather upper and supported by a unique midsole with ridged walls and the LeBron lion logo on the heel, the this LeBron X NSW Lifestyle Sample exudes that grown-up nature that was first initiated with the Nike LeBron Sportswear capsule that debuted in 2011. The insole also features a special label that reads ‘Virescit Vulnere Virtus’ – a Latin phrase that has anchored the LeBron NSW Collection since its launch. Continue on for a full detailed gallery of this exciting sample and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates regarding a potential release, and check out the entire listing from wowfactor101 on eBay.
