Nike Sportswear’s paying tribute to LeBron James crowning achievement in a special way with the “Cork” version of the LeBron X. Why cork? It’s a reference to the tradition of cork-popping champagne celebrations associated with winning championships. The lifestyle version of his latest sig is made of genuine cork, which I haven’t figured out how wood will work on a shoe but leave it to the Swoosh to give anything a shot for the Chosen One.
Already causing a furor, we don’t know where the shoes will release, the quantities or costs, but we do now know they’ll be dropping on Saturday, February 23. Get your connects in order now.
