"Deep within the earth’s core, intense heat and pressure actively change the structure of carbon. Billions of its atoms are bonded together, producing pure diamonds." -- Nike Basketball

That's the story behind the latest LeBron X colorway in Charcoal/Total Orange/Black, nicknamed "Lava."  Charcoal outfits the Hyperfuse upper while Black and Total Orange take care of the rest.  The "Lava" LeBron X also features a unique diamond-shaped volcano icon at the heel.

The LeBron X "Lava" erupts this Saturday, December 8 at select Nike Basketball retailers nationwide.
