Things are certainly looking up even more for LeBron James. With "The Decision" rapidly becoming a distant memory, and fresh off his second straight NBA Championship and Finals MVP award, James can enjoy the convenient timing for the release of his newest signature shoe. The denim Nike LeBron X EXT hit shelves during the early morning hours of June 22, 2013 and fans came out in droves to buy the colorful sneaker. Although the shoes are expensive, retailing for $180, previous editions have retailed for as much as $315. Unfortunately, long lines and and eager consumers led to violence on the release date in Atlanta, as an alleged thief was shot and killed by a shopper purportedly acting in self-defense.
The line of sneakers from LeBron James are among the most popular options for both die-hard collectors and the average consumer. However, just like with basketball cards and overall NBA legacy, James will always be compared to Michael Jordan and his popular line of sneakers. Despite this largely unfair and reoccurring comparison, LeBron James is clearly on the cusp of that Jordan level. At only 28-years old, James has plenty of time to enhance his profile.
The Nike LeBron X EXT is one of several editions of the LeBron X that have debuted in recent months. The limited edition runs ensure quick sellouts and huge markups on the secondary market. The vibrant shoe features a Midnight Navy denim exterior, along with a Fireberry pink sole and Hazlenut leather tongue, shoelaces and interior. The Nike LeBron X EXT sneakers are available in men's sizes 7 - 15 and most retail outlets have instituted a "one pair per customer" policy.
