Joining a rare group of men, LeBron James will be taking home his fourth MVP title this year and in the process, becoming only the second player in NBA history to win four MVP titles in the span of five year. To mark this historic occasion, designers at Nike and its Nike Basketball division created a special LeBron X “MVP” edition. A culmination of LeBron’s past achievements, especially those during the 2012-13 season when he led the Miami Heat to a 27-game winning streak, the LeBron X “MVP” features all of the design details throughout the LeBron X product cycle since the new design’s introduction back in August 2012. And with launch of this special footwear, it is also Nike’s tribute to one of the greatest player the game of basketball seen thus far. More detailed information about release and availability to come soon.
The Nike LeBron X has been one of the most prolific basketball models in recent years. Starting with the USA edition, we’ve seen countless colorways as well as lifestyle models such as the much-clamored for Corks. To that list, add the LeBron X NSW Lifestyle NRG sneakers. A true lifestyle counterpart to the LeBron X, the LeBron X NSW Lifestyle NRG borrows elements from its performance-based cousin and applies it to a vulcanized leather sneaker. The chukka-style silhouette features the diamond cutouts seen from the LeBron X as well as the backwards “Swoosh.” Pictured here in a Night Stadium colorway, the shoe features a black upper with grey laces, tongue and lining and sits atop a simple white rubber sole. Look for the shoe at select stockists including Oki-Ni.
It’s been a champagne year for LeBron James and Nike reckons it’s time to pop the celebration bottles. LBJ recently picked up his fourth NBA regular season MVP award and the Swoosh is contributing to the coronation with a set of sneaks fit for a king. The LeBron X MVP takes inspiration from all of the preceding LeBron X releases, resulting in a pretty damn crazy pair of kicks that ticks off just about every colour on the sneaker spectrum. The LeBron X MVP will be available in limited quantities at select retailers in North America and China soon. Pics via Nike, INC.

After a year-long hiatus, the web-base series will be continuing on from where it left off, though now in computer animation instead. Another change is the series’ distribution, now with a dedicated hub on Xbox 360‘s Xbox Video. or through MSN Video Hub on msn.com. The new season of The LeBrons will begin next Friday, May 10th.
