Nike LeBron X USA Olympic Gold Medal (1)

words // Brandon Richard

LeBron James continues one of the most successful season by an individual player in basketball history by debuting the Nike LeBron X in today's Olympic final.

The design of the LeBron X is inspired by the diamond, an unbreakable gemstone forged by time, heat and pressure. LeBron's latest is constructed for dynamic containment, impact protection and responsiveness to assist one of the game's most explosive players.

Marking LeBron's 10th Anniversary with Nike Basketball, the LeBron X is the first signature basketball shoe featuring Nike+ Basketball technology. In select colorways, you'll be able to track and measure performance, while an app provides feedback. The shoe also offers a lock-down fit, excellent cushioning on impact and a lightweight fit and feel.

Combining four of Nike’s most advanced innovations, the shoe features the first full-length visible Nike Zoom unit, dynamic Flywire technology, Hyperfuse construction and Nike+ Basketball brings the shoe to a whole new level. 

Stay tuned for more on the LeBron X.
