LEBRON X: Nike Sportswear Honours the Champ

To honour LeBron James and his cork-popping, post-championship champagne bath this year, Nike Sportswear is releasing the special edition LeBron X “Cork” Edition this December in limited quantities.

LeBron James.
You either love him or hate him.

I’ll be honest, there’s something about him that throws me off a little, but I have to admit, he’s one helluva ball player.

The sweet taste of victory was celebrated by popping champagne bottles on June 21 following his first championship, and was a tribute to an unprecedented year for LeBron James. Three time league MVP, Finals MVP and the honour James and his teammates accomplished this year – World Champs.

“These accomplishments are a distinction that stand the test of time like a fine champagne, and the inspiration behind James’ tenth signature shoe – the genuine cork version inspired by the LEBRON X performance shoe. Nike Sportswear brings a sophisticated edge to the shoe with premium materials and fabrications intended for off-court use.

The LEBRON X NSW cork edition marks the first of multiple Nike Sportswear versions of Nike signature basketball shoes, all remixed with premium materials for non-performance use.”

The lifestyle version of the LeBron X by Nike Sportswear features a cork built in celebration of LeBron’s historic accomplishments over the past year. The “Cork” LeBron X also features a leather tongue and wax laces, sitting above an off-white and red 360 Zoom Air tooling.

Retailing for $320, the Nike Sportswear LEBRON X Cork shoe launches in Australia on the 31st December in limited quantities.
