These Nike LeBron X Sneakers Are Covered In Cork

Last June, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and the rest of the players on the Miami Heat popped champagne bottles after they won the 2012 NBA Finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder. They popped lots and lots and lots of champagne bottles. They did it in their locker room. They did it at a few different Miami nightclubs. Hell, we’re sure a few of them woke up the day after they won the ‘chip and popped a bottle or two for breakfast. A huge celebration went down in Miami in the days following the Heat’s huge win.

It sounds like the champagne celebration is still going on, too. Not literally, of course. The Heat are back in training camp now and gearing up to defend their title this season. But, Nike is still celebrating the Heat’s win by creating a pair of Nike LeBron X sneakers that are—get this—inspired by champagne bottles and covered in cork. That’s right, almost every inch of these things feature cork. They also feature hits of red, black, and white, which are the Heat’s colors, but mostly they just feature a lot of cork. There’s no denying what these were created for—to celebrate the championship that the Heat just won.

If you want to get your hands on a pair, they’ll be available through select Nike retailers in December. We’re not sure how much they’ll cost, but we have to believe they’ll go for well over $200, if you’re lucky enough to find a pair. In the meantime, is there any chance LeBron rocks a pair of these on opening night? Or, better yet, is there any chance he wears a pair on the night that the Heat receive their championship rings? Now, that would really be something.

Take a look at what the all-cork LeBron X will look like. Do they make you want to pop a few bottles?
