As LeBron James and company gear up for the post-season this year, Nike Basketball will introduce an Elite version of the Nike LeBron X.

Unlike most Nike LeBron X releases seen thus far, you can expect the Elite series to pack a greater punch in terms of performance and design. Likely to be included in the first round of releases, today brings a first look at the “Hyper Blue” colorway of the Nike LeBron X (10) P.S. Elite. Carrying a Knicks-inspired palette with total orange, blackened blue, and pure platinum accents throughout, these signature kicks will feature a familiar Hyperfuse upper fused with a carbon fiber frame. As additional images reveal a new patterned sockliner, you can also expect to see these Elites don a speckled midsole and printed laces for a complete finish. So, what’s the retail price? Rumors suggest that these LeBrons will debut for $260, just $10 more than its predecessor and $10 less than the X+ Sport Pack. Of course, we’ll just have to give it a few days until these rumors are confirmed.
