The exact color description on this special “China edition” LeBron X is Tourmaline/University Red/Black. Tourmaline is the designated color name representing the Jade mineral shaded upper on the shoes. (Diamonds cut jade.)
LeBron X “Cutting Jade” is currently slated to retailers as a late October or early November launch. There will be at least a $180 standard version and potentially a LeBron X+ style too [UPDATE: we've been told the Nike Plus version of this style has been scraped] (the souped up $300-ish Cutting Jade X was offered to retail buyers months ago, anyways).
Lastly, just because this edition was built with China in mind doesn’t mean the US consumer will be left out. Nike LeBron X “Cutting Jade” is expected to be a limited edition release stateside, much like the LeBron 9 China “Blue Flame” was last year (think Foot Locker’s House of Hoops accounts and select independent shops). But we’ll keep you updated on specific distribution as a finalized launch approaches.
