The Nike LeBron X is definitely on the back burner at the moment, allowing both the Elite and the Low styles to duke it out for retail supremacy. The thing is though, the two occupy entirely different categories, The Elite is obviously intended for the utmost of performance wear, while the Nike LeBron X Low seems to be more of an off court special. Which will prove the more popular style come tomorrow’s simultaneous release? Chip in with your two cents and grab the Nike LeBron X Low “Violet Force” shown here just a few hours early from shihguy on eBay.
The Nike LeBron X Elite “Sport Turquoise” will become the latest of LeBron sneakers to release come tomorrow, May 25th. Unlike the Nike LeBron X proper, the Elite version doesn’t have the little badge area that’s so often been an indicator of a theme, but for what it’s worth Nike Basketball is calling them “Dade County”. Speaking of which, what ever happened to the whole “Diamond” theme that was going on with the X? Did they toss that out when moving on to Elite? Give us your thoughts in the comments and watch for the Nike LeBron X Elite “Sport Turquoise” in stores tomorrow, or right now on eBay.

LeBron James had plenty of reason to celebrate this week, having helped his team just barely edge out the Pacers in a playoff OT with a simple layup. He opted for some downtime the next day, rolling around Miami with fiancee Savannah Brinson by his side and some Jordans on his feet. More specifically it was the Air Jordan XI Low in that red and white colorway from last summer, one that just happens to match with his whole “Heat” looking get up.

The post-season has slowed quite a bit, with just four teams left in the race. As the conference finals have started off with a bang, so too has the sneaker game of the gentlemen left in it. Out West Manu Ginobli went for a switch up between the Nike LeBron 9 and the Nike LeBron X, Matt Bonner kept the New Balance dream alive, and Quincy Pondexter showed up on court wearing the adidas Real Deal. In the East LeBron of course dominated headlines, donning yet another exclusive of his Nike LeBron X Elite model. Other notables included Ray Allen doing his thing in the Air Jordan XX8, Dwyane Wade’s further flaunting of his Li-Ning deal, and DJ Augustin’s constant Air Jordan IV fare. Get all these and more after the jump in this edition of NBA (Playoffs) Feet.
The Miami Heat are showing a rare chink in their armor at the moment, currently battling it out in overtime against the Pacers. LeBron James seems to have picked up another pair of Nike LeBron X Elite joints during that long break from the NBA action that he recently enjoyed-a white and black speckle version on display here. The sneakers go pretty light on the reddish tones from the Heat’s palette, injecting those shades most prominently up near the lacing system. See LeBron’s Eastern Conference Finals Nike LeBron X Elite PE sneakers after the jump and tell us how they rank amongst his recent wears.
It seems as if the LeBron’s next shoe is also planning a bit of a lifestyle takedown. Shown here is what appears to be the Nike LeBron XI NSW Lifestyle, a sneaker that riffs off the overall shape of the Nike LeBron XI while totally switching out the materials. Instead of that bulky Armorposite plating there’s a clean mixture of brown leather wrapping the upper. It took a long time into the lifespan of the current Bron sig for us to ever see the lifestyle alternate, so a sample popping up this early for the eleventh is indeed a bit strange. The first sight of the shoe comes serendipitously on the same day that Darrin Crascenzi, designer of the LeBron crown logo, was named to Fast Company’s list of Most Creative People. Check out the Nike LeBron XI NSW Lifestyle after the jump and stay tuned to Sneaker News for updated info as soon as it’s available.

The latest is a combo mural and sculpture that was installed for Miami Art Walk.
