Nike has officially announced the release date for the Cork edition of the Nike LeBron X. Initially, they were slated to drop in December, but Nike delayed the launch. Today we get the new date and that’s basically it. No word on the distribution method or even the price has been mentioned. Chances are it’s still going to be $305, which hopefully includes the special packaging presented below.
