Giants WR Victor Cruz, one of the sports world’s higher profile sneaker connoisseurs, recently picked up some custom NYG Nike Zoom Rookies from sneaker customizer Sole Swap at Jersey City, NJ boutique Sneaker Room. But forget those for a sec.
Vic took delivery in a pair of Nike LeBron X+ “Pressure”, a Black/University Red-Chrome “Away” look with a translucent outsole crafted for LeBron’s Miami Heat road games. Why the nickname? Well, diamonds are formed by heat and pressure.
Like all LeBron X+ models, the “Pressure” edition will retail at $270. If Nike decides to release the “+” enabled edition without the sensor chip and charger pack, it could appear at the un-bundled $200 price point, too.
To get a better idea what the “Pressure” X looks like, check out the included images of the grade school and youth options which don’t carry the translucent bottoms or faceted side Swoosh like the men’s lineup but will get you in the zone.
