One of the most creative and compelling colorways of LeBron’s current lowtop will indeed make it to retail before the debut of his next signature shoe, the LeBron 11. And quite soon, in fact. The Nike LeBron X Low Reptile release date is set for Thursday, October 10.
Sort of going the same route as the Bel Air Jordan 5, and pairing a largely neutral build with eye-popping colorful accents, the shoe sports subdued grey through the Hyperfuse upper. That’s then starkly contrasted by light blue Flywire and Swoosh, turquoise liner and laces, and a crazy, colorfully-printed midsole that incorporates green, blue and pink, and even features what appears to be an eye at the midfoot.
The LeBron 11 releases October 10, so this may well be the final LeBron X you ever see at retail. Is it one of the best?
And as a quick caveat to that 10/10 release date, Foot Locker is actually publicizing the date as October 5. (The 10th is Nike’s official date.) If that winds up being the case, we’ll update you before Saturday.
