Nike Lebron X EXT Cork

2012 was a landmark year for Lebron James.  Another regular season MVP award was earned, but the pinnacle of the season, and his career, came with his first NBA Championship and Finals MVP to go along with it.  This first Championship for Lebron James took many years to come to fruition, and to commemorate this historic year, Nike has tabbed the Lebron X for a special treatment.  Representing the celebration and glory is one of the most uniquely constructed shoes of the year featuring some luxurious materials.  This Spotlight Special looks at the Nike Lebron X EXT Cork.

A unique cork based upper combines with leather for the most luxurious Lebron X

Cork, leather, and cloth combine with Flywire and Nike Zoom for this Lebron X.  A cream white outsole and midsole has a splash of red with the Lebron logo on the bottom and the plastic pillars of the Zoom unit.  Along the base of the shoe, a white cloth layer is stitched on the cork material, underneath the diamond shaped shank plate on the lateral side.  The cork based upper looks just like it was popped from a bottle, marked with diamond shard cut outs and Nike swoosh logos.  On the right shoe, a Lebron lion and the number 6 are printed at the heel.  Leather makes up the rounded laces and tongue.  Finally, red insoles with the Lebron logo on the heel commemorate the Championship Season with “World Champions” written underneath.
