Ever since the Olympics ended a couple of months ago, sneaker fans have been patiently waiting for the kicks the athletes were wearing to hit the market. Wait no more, as of September 29th, the LeBron X, Durant IV, Kobe VII and Hyperdunks will be released to commemorate the gold medal won by Team USA. (Sidebar: would they have done Silver-themed shoes if Team USA came in second? If so, that may not have been so bad.)
Expect lines of people trying to get their hands on the first iteration of the LeBron X shoes. But my money will probably go, once again, to the Durants. Sue me.
Also, let’s have a moment of silence for the official end of the LeBron IX; one of the best line of shoes of all time. The X’s have big…wait for it…shoes to fill.
