Here’s another look at the Nike LeBron XI in the so called Parachute Gold colorway. Along with the new pics come news regarding the official release date as well as a confirmation on the Lunarlon + Full-length Zoom Air cushioning setup (evident on the pics below). The “Parachute Gold” LeBron 11 will be the first colorway and it is scheduled to be released on October 12th, 2013 for $200. The shoe features Arctic Green details on the patterned inner lining, Swoosh border and the outsole with subtle Red highlights on the tongue tab, Dynamic Flywire and the bottom. Check out probably the most detailed look below and let us know your thoughts on the upcoming LeBron James’ sig.

|From Nike LeBron X…|
With the Nike LeBron PS Elite about to launch in less than a week, let’s take a peek into the future. Some early tech specs have already been leaked regarding the Nike LeBron XI. As usual, we’re looking at the October 2013 release with 5 colorways planned for the initial drop. This includes a couple of energy styles like a Jungle themed make up and the Mark XI (Iron Man inspired) in a Metal Blue color. Have fun decoding the styles below. They seem to be very interesting. As for the technical specification the 360 Max Zoom unit will still be in place, but it will be accompanied by a Lunarlon midsole. A new rendition of Foamposite will makes its debut, which has been dubbed Armorposite. Dynamic Flywire will be used once again and these are said to be the lightest LeBron signatures to date at about 14oz (excluding the Soldiers). Now for the bad news… the retail price is reportedly set at $200! It’s possible this is gonna apply to the standard version unlike this season when it was exactly that much for the Nike+ enabled model. This means we’re looking at a $20 increase in price. Feel free to share your thoughts on the Nike LeBron XI in the comments below and take a quick poll after the break.

When Nike bumped the price for the Black History Month edition from $180 to $200 it was somewhat justified by donating proceeds from sales of the BHM Collection to the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of America. Still, it didn’t feel right, though, paying $200 for a regular pair without any Nike+ features or even the diamond cut Swoosh. Seems like the same thing is going to happen with the release of the All-Star edition. Apparently the special Area 72 packaging is also worth the extra $20. Initially, Eastbay reported a $185 MSRP for the Laser Purple/Strata Grey-Total Crimson X’s, but nikestore.com has updated their launch calendar stating a $200 price tag.Read the rest of this entry »
The long awaited Black History Month collection launches tomorrow. The whole collection includes signature shoes for Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James, as well as some Air Force 1′s, Women’s Dunk Sky High, jackets, tees, and even Nike Elite socks. Nike will donate proceeds from sales of the BHM Collection to the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of America, so this somewhat justifies the higher price tag. However, in my mind Nike could do the same without forcing the customers to pay more. All in all, the new LeBron X style featuring the signature black, grey and orange BHM print drops tomorrow (8am EST) for $200.Read the rest of this entry »
We already know the LeBron X won’t be a $300+ sneaker, after all, but turns out it also won’t be a $290 sneaker either. The Nike+ enabled version of the LeBron X shoe has motion sensors to track various metrics including how high the player jumps. As it turns out, the shoe, a version of the LeBron X, will be sold in a pack for $270, Nike spokesman Brian Strong confirmed to ESPN.com on Thursday. Nike had previously said that, at the time of the report, a price had not yet been set. Sources say the majority of the LeBron X shoes that will hit the market on September 29th will retail for $180. But the Nike+ enabled version of the shoe, which allows for technology to be embedded in the mid-sole of the shoe, will be sold with the sensors, the adapter and charger – together called the Sport Kit – for $270. Should consumers already own the kit, the Nike+ enabled LeBron X also will be sold separately for $200. And yes the prices do change!
