The Nike LeBron X Elite+ release date is set for Saturday, April 20th, the premiere colorway of LeBron’s postseason-Plus shoe. (The Kobe 8 Elite+ and KD V Elite+ drop that day as well.)
The LeBron X Elite+ sports all the impressive tech upgrades of the standard Elite — stuff like Kevlar aramid reinforcement to add stability but not bulk and an articulated foam tongue for impact protection — with Nike Plus added as well, allowing an in-shoe sensor to sync up with a phone app to measure and report every aspect of the wearer’s game.
First up will be a clean, simple colorway, with black carbon fiber and contrast gold accents set against a stark white upper, further contrasted by black speckling on the midsole and gold on the outsole. Expect limited quantities and thus, most likely, a quick sellout.
