I remember awhile back hearing his goal was to have the most expensive sneakers on the market. Not a fan of him personally, but I think his new sneakers look pretty good.

thats with the + version, without the + it's $180.

I really want the Hyperposite (Amare's) but its $225. now that is a scam.

Nike is gona raise all their sneakers prices, as far as Lebron goes he has the sickest nike bball sneakers out there (Kobe has some nice ones to here and there), am not surprised if they will cost the most..

LeBron's shoes have had almost the exact same designs since the 6s. His shoe game sucks.

Default Re: LeBron's new sneakers to cost $300!

Just to reiterate what others have already said, the $300 price tag is only for the shoes that come with Nike+, aka the Vertical Measuring technology. Though, even at $185, that would be well out of my price range. I was pretty pumped for my $90 pickup last week though; likely the best shoe deal I've made in a while.



Back to the Nike+ technology though, will that not be one of the most skewable technologies ever? It will measure one's vertical accounting for the moment feet leave the ground and when they come back down, is that correct? If so, won't any kind of non-traditional landing provide a funky result? And they mentioned being able to "share" your scores online. Could folks not just hang on the rim for a split second and bring about a high (but not too high) result that'd not truly represent one's ability?

This is why I gave up the sneaker game.

If its not resellers buying all the J's - its Nike gauging the prices on the actual performance gear.

BB4's are a classic, but I'm tired of these excessive retro releases. Even Reebok released another Answer IV, and this isn't the first time they've done this.

They have the certified Lebron funk added. Not worth all that bread, sorry.
