The LeBron X has been the talk of the sneaker world since its unveiling during the gold medal basketball game of the 2012 Summer Olympics. The colorways that have dropped so far (“Olympic,” “Fireberry,” “Blue Diamond,” “Cutting Jade”) have all been fresh, but Nike is allowing sneakerheads to take things to a whole new level. With Nike ID, you can now customize your LeBron X with whatever colors you want. Style them after your favorite team, or mix and match until you find something dope. Here at STACK, we decided to take a shot at designing what we deem to be the ten coolest colorways of the LeBron X.
Aquaman’s underwater outfit has always been a mixture of funky colors, so why not put it on a shoe? The LeBron X looks fresh with orange covering the upper, teal gracing the swoosh, midsole and laces, and yellow taking care of the rest. All you need is the ability to breath underwater and you’ll be set.
The Denver Nuggets unveiled their new alternate yellow jerseys for the season, and we decided to design a shoe that matches up nicely with them. The blue and bright yellow contrast nicely with each other, and the speckled midsole featuring the main colors is a sharp touch.
“Trick or Dunk”
There’s just something about the orange and black combo that feels right. Maybe it’s because it reminds us of fall, Halloween and the start of basketball season. Or maybe it’s because those colors make for one singularly handsome shoe. Whatever the reason, these Halloween-inspired LeBrons are sure to leave your friends orange with envy. Is that the saying?
Paul Molitor. Roberto Alomar. John Olerud. Joe Carter. Bring back memories of the Blue Jays’ glory years with this colorway of the LeBron X, modeled after the classic Toronto Blue Jays logo. Dueling shades of blue mixed with red and white have always made the Blue Jays logo one of the best in sports, and those colors translate nicely onto a pair of ‘Brons.
Whether you want to honor breast cancer awareness month or just make a bold shoe choice, “Think Pink” is for you. The pink covering the laces, swoosh and Flywire really stands out against the black upper. You know what they say. Pink is in. Time to embrace it.
It’s pretty much a consensus that the old Dallas Mavericks logo is (as Larry David would say) pretty, pretty good. Matching up the pine green with the dark blue and touching it up with a splash of white on the laces and the midsole make for one sharp Mavericks-inspired pair of kicks.
