When we first previewed Nike‘s unique cork build of the LeBron X to celebrate King James’ 2012 accomplishments, it was thought that it would launch globally in December. Now we’re getting word from Swoosh HQ that the NSW edition to celebrate his first cork-poppin’ championship will release February 23rd – almost a full two months after we originally expected – but at least we have a few more photos to comfort us in this time of waiting. Made of genuine cork and premium leather with wax laces all sitting above an off-white and red 360 Zoom Air unit underneath, this unique build still maintains its performance touch just in case you need it. No word on pricing details yet, but stay tuned and we will give you the latest as soon as it drops.
Release Date: February 23, 2013 (Saturday)
