This is the second release in the PS Elite series. It comes in a hyper blue, pure platinum, blackened blue and bright citrus colorway. The Lebron X’s have been a hit and miss, with some colors both flying off the shelves and some collecting dust as we speak. This colorway is anticipated by sneakerheads but what might be holding them back is the price of the shoe. It retails for $260 the day it’s released. Last year, Nike released the Lebron 9’s PS Elite to little fan fare, and the price alone set them back. Almost a year later you can still cop a pair at local outlets and retailers.
Opposed to the pair that dropped over the weekend (4/20) this pair will not come packed with Nike+ technology so beware before you throw down your cash. If you’re looking to get a pair of elites from Nike Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant will also be releasing a pair just in cash your not willing to shell out $250+ on some sneakers. So far they hav been hitting retailers early. Stores like Rock City Kicks and sellers on eBay have early releases since last week, but if you’re not ready to pay over sticker price you can wait until Saturday for the actual release of the shoe at Footlocker, Finishline and your local NSW retailor to grab a pair.
