It took about 10 seconds from twitter to nikestore.com and my first attempt to add to cart the LeBron X Crown Jewel limited edition. Turns out it was too limited and I was too late. No, you didn’t miss out on an unannounced drop at NDC, because the Fireberry X’s will release today in the States at select spots. However, folks in Europe did get a chance online at midnight. Apparently about 100-200 pairs were released so it’s only slightly better than what Nike did with the MVP pack in Miami. Limited is the keyword these days. Let’s not forget about the price too. If you think USD$270 is bad, please note that Nike’s currency calculator is totally messed up for Europe launches and it’s getting worse each year. The Crown Jewels, and I image other Nike Plus Basketball styles, retails for 255 Euros which is about $330! Anyway, I did order a size 7.5 so I can take pics for my loyal readers and probably will let it go afterwards. Thanks to the NDC Europe drop we get some new pics. More looks after the break.
