For those of you who happen to just have $315 bucks just lying around, that is exactly enough to buy you a special version of LeBron James brand new shoe.
The special-edition shoes will be the most pricey sneaker in Nike’s history:
Nike will release the latest installment of James’ signature shoe, the LeBron X, later this year. The enhanced version of the shoe that features motion sensing technology will reportedly cost up to $315. James sported a version of the shoes in Team USA’s gold medal game win over Spain at the London Olympics.
The base model is only supposed to be on shelves for $180, which is right around the same range his shoes cost last year.
The $315 shoe will allow the owner to track quickness, vertical leap and explosiveness with sensors relaying the information.
