The sun is setting on the rest of the Eastern Conference as LeBron James and the Miami Heat are dominating opponents on their current 15 game winning streak and putting all teams on notice that they plan to repeat as champs. Now, as Lebron continues his dominance, we have a special treat as we will be moving up the release of the Nike LeBron X “Setting” to this Saturday, March 9th. This newest colorway reminds us more of Miami’s football team then their basketball team, but it’s real inspiration is drawn from the backdrop of a sunset on South Beach with it’s mix of oranges and teal colors, which is reflected on the diamond on the inside heel. The upper construction is mostly atomic teal with bright orange taking care of the lacing system, inside flywire technology and outlining the Swoosh design, while the “sail” colorway covers the outsole. We don’t know if LeBron will be rocking these on the court anytime soon, but it’s certainly a colorway that reflects his new hometown city.
Pick up a pair starting this Saturday, March 9th at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker and Footlocker.com for $180. They’ll also be available in a full run of kids sizes – Grade School, Pre-School and Infant. We also have a full line of fresh gear including t-shirt’s, shorts, elite socks and more to hookup to the kicks.
