Outrageous (And Outraged) Nike LeBron X Pricing Speculation 

Year: 2012 

Source: Allegedly respectable news outlets

We aren't exactly sure how this one happened since numerous well-respected sneaker publications had stated the two price levels for the LeBron Xs from the start. Regardless, some sites who typically don't report on shoes unless it is negative started posting stories that the shoe would go for $315 with no mention of the lower price point for the shoes without the Nike+ technology. (Not to mention the initial price point even for the "+" version was $290.) Much hand-wringing ensued. C'mon novices, don't try this shit at home.
