After being teased online for months, the Nike LeBron X Lifestyle NRG will finally release stateside in a two-pack this weekend. Like the Kobe 8 Lifestyle, the LeBron Lifestyle is stripped away of its performance-oriented materials in favor of more casual, luxurious ones. What may stand out the most to sneakerheads is the introduction of the vulcanized sole in the LeBron signature line. Next, genuine leather makes up the tongue, inner lining, and upper where laser cut vents are included to reflect the mesh panels on the original X. An embossed “Lion 6 logo” is stitched on to the tongue. Finally, the LeBron X Lifestyle also features a translucent outsole rarely seen on a vulcanized shoe.
Included in the Lifestyle pack is the Hazelnut/Blue colorway and the Stadium Grey colorway. The Hazelnut colorway follows the new trend of bright colored midsole shoes. The blue pop which is found on the vulcanized sole is also found on the leather logo on the tongue. A shade of gold is used on the inner lining and the laces.
The Stadium Grey colorway has a much simpler, subdued look in comparison to its Hazelnut counterpart. This colorway uses a clean white vulcanized sole and a stadium grey leather upper. A lighter shade of grey makes up the inner lining and the laces. The finishing touch is the brown leather logo on the tongue.
The Nike LeBron X NSW Lifestyle NRG Pack drops this Saturday, June 15th at House of Hoops by Foot Locker locations for $130 apiece. Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will carry this release.
