Originally developed by LeBron James himself for a slew of Nike Basketball commercials back in 2005, The LeBrons animated series is a contemporary retelling of Aesop’s Fable and featuring James’ four major personality traits as caricatures with various scenarios based on everyday topics such as family, teamwork, community, and such. After the initial success of Season 1 back in 2011, Believe Entertainment Group is bringing back the series this month with seven episodes. Now in 3D CGI-animation by Counter Punch Studios, The LeBrons continues to convey positive messages through realistic settings. Available now for view through its own dedicated hub on Xbox 360‘s Xbox Video or via MSN Video Hub on msn.com.
As LeBrons tenth signature shoe continues to rise in popularity with each release, the lifestyle versions have also found their way to the top of many sneakerheads lists as well.
Multifaceted in its design, the Nike LeBron X has proven that it can dominate the worlds of performance and style simultaneously. Focusing more on the lifestyle side, we have some updated images of the “Black/Mint” Nike LeBron X EXT QS.
Sporting a clean black suede upper these luxurious Bron X’s are surely going to look dapper on the shelves of retailers if/when they drop.
Despite Nike having set a target release for two months from now, will you sneakerheads pick these bad boys up once they drop? Hit us up and let us know and enjoy the new pics.
The Nike LeBron X EXT has shaped up as the casual shoe for folks who want to keep reppin’ LBJ all the way, both on courts and in restaurants. Heads went a little freaky for the brown suede edition, so it’s only appropriate that a black colourway gets its chance to shine too. Premium is the name of the game for this dinner suit sneaker, with minty eyelets lighting the way for lux leather laces, a soft blackout suede swamps the upper, and mint flashes again in the midsole air bubble. We may be a couple of months away from seeing these hit a wider Quickstrike release, but you can cop a pair now at Sole Awesome if you’ve just had a good week in Vegas.
After Nike unveiled the masterfully crafted Nike LeBron X “MVP” sneakers, im sure you all knew it was just a matter of time before the insanely ill motif began to find itself popping up on other products.
Well, it looks like a pair of Beats by Dre headphones is the first major product to be wrapped in the “MVP’s” eye catching design. Posted below is a look at the Beats by Dre x Nike LeBron X “MVP” headphones, which sport a similarly crazy design similar to that of its sneaker counterpart.
Though the aforementioned item is not an official collab and won’t make it to retail, one can only wonder how fast these headphones would sell out if they were to ever make a retail appearance. Check out the pics after the jump and let us know how you feel about these “MVP” inspired headphones.
Having been awarded his fourth MVP trophy in the last five years, LeBron James joins an exclusive club made up of Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell as the only players to have won the award at least four times. James’ accomplishments during the past regular season were remarkable: leading his Miami Heat team to a league-best 66 – 16 record — highlighted by a 27-game winning streak — all while leading the league in Player Efficiency Rating for the sixth straight season. Efficiency has in fact become the hallmark of King James’ game, one that’s evolved dramatically since his first MVP for the 2008 – 2009 season. Relentlessly working on his post-up attack following the Heat’s loss to the Mavs in the 2011 Finals has made Bron the single most versatile player in the NBA, and at 28, he’s displayed smarts, drive and a fierce work ethic to go along with his innate talent. It’s by now clear to everyone — including his most begrudging detractors — that James is a once-in-a-generation basketball great, one that’s worthy of a career retrospective. His career highlights have been assembled by the NBA, starting with Draft Day and continuing to the awarding of MVP no. 4. Enjoy the video below.
Sneaker customizer Mache is back with his latest body of work which borrows a page right from DC Comics. For this superhero-inspired custom LeBron, Mache uses the legendary “Flash” as his muse for this dope design.
Sporting a fiery red/yellow upper, Mache incorporates some ill lightening graphics throughout as a subtle nod to Flash’s logo. Upon further examination, we noticed the Flash’s actual logo found it’s way on to both the heel just below the Swoosh as well as on the small heel badge as well.
Posted after the jump is a detailed look at Mache’s “The Flash” Nike LeBron X customs that he made special ordered for Darius Miller of the New Orleans Hornets.
Check the pics and let us know how you feel about Mache’s superhero customs.
Coming off of literally just sharing his “The Flash” Nike LeBron X customs, Mache goes two-for-two on the superhero custom tip tonight as we have a look at his Nike LeBron X “Spawn” customs.
In bringing Spawn to the LeBron for a second straight year, Mache goes all out for this incredibly crafted pair of customs. With Spawn’s eyes occupying the heels and a Spawn skull lace lock laying claim to the tasteful chain link laces, Mache continues to show us why his attention to detail is matched by no one.
After you finish checking out the previous post on his “Flash” Bron X offering, make sure you take a look at these incredibly detailed “Spawn” Nike LeBron X customs and let us know where these rank amongst your favorite pair of Mache customs.
It’s good to stick with what you know and love, and it looks like Mache has just about mastered Nike LeBron customs. Here he returns to the LeBron X here and gives it the superhero treatment. Red, yellow and plenty of lightning bolts come out to play on the upper, with the inspiration coming squarely from the Flash comic series. Pro baller Darius Miller ordered these off Mache so we hope to see them when the New Orleans Pelicans take flight in their first game with the new moniker. News via Freshness.
After a nearly unanimous decision to give LeBron James his fourth NBA MVP award, you could say Nike anticipated the occurrence as they had the LeBron X “What The MVP” ready for LeBron to wear during the award ceremony and game thereafter. Like other famous “What the” creations, this shoe serves as a collage colorway of many other favorites. Check it out as we highlight some of the previously released LeBron X makeups that were featured on this celebratory sneaker. Also, let us know in the comments if you see any more previous colorway nods worth noting.
