Nike’s Lebron X NXW Non Performance Edition:
The crazed infatuation that some sportswear lovers have for sneakers is insane. To stand on a long line, a week or more in advance, in inclement weather, and sometimes risk encountering bodily harm, will never be a logical use of time in my eyes.

The Nike Sportswear LEBRON X NSW cork shoe launches globally in December in limited quantities. I suspect idiots, hooligans and fanboys worldwide are staking out their spots and fluffing up their Snuggies for some long cold nights on line.
