Lebron James sneaker for $315?? Nah….

Yeaaaa.

Nike’s new LeBron X will retail for $315 when it hits stores this fall, up $145 from his last shoe that came out earlier this year.

This is just flat out ridiculous. I remember paying $80-100 back in the day for some Nike Huarache’s, and that was a lot back in the 90′s. Today, I’d rather pay a bill. Why is Nike charging so much for some shoes?

Nike attributes the price hike to rising labor costs in China and a jump in cotton prices.

Nike would be smart to look to move their operations somewhere else, no? But hey..it’s Nike…they are the kings so we will buy them. Not me, but you!

What does Lebron James have to say about the price increase?

Jon “Bones” Jones joins Nike greatness

This couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. Well maybe, but in the sport of MMA, is there anyone nicer than Bones Jones?

The UFC light heavyweight champion has signed a sweeping, worldwide sponsorship deal with sports apparel giant Nike, MMA Fighting has confirmed with multiple sources.As a part of the deal, Jones will be featured on worldwide Nike advertising and receive his own signature line, sources said. It is expected to be announced within a week.

This another huge step for MMA. The sport that has quietly taken over the popularity of boxing, and I believe is inching it’s way on the heels of hockey. Jon Jones being the front man with the “swoosh” on his chest will definitely help.

Kobe Bryant stars in Italian explotaition film

With the Kobesystem commercials and now this, it’s good to know that someone at Nike got off their asses and decided to market one of the best NBA players in the world a little more in the US. Maybe it has something to do with the knee surgery.

This is another reason why Kobe Bryant owns Italy.

“The short movie, discovered in the basement of the director’s house, tells the story of the epic struggle between the law enforcement and a gang of ruthless thiefs and how the battle between evil and good takes a twist for the better thanks to the intervention of Black Mamba, international man of action and incredible baller.”

 

Peep the film

Nike tweets USA Basketball Team Pic

I will admit this looks nice. Intimidating. Patriotic. And just plain ole mean.

This picture was tweeted out by Nike, giving us a glimpse at the new uni’s that the team will wear in London this summer.

Notice Lebron James positioned in the forefront of all the other players. I’m just saying. No question who is the best player in the NBA…with or without a ring. For now anyway.
