But before the shoes saw life on the court, they had another life… The life of a 3D printed prototype.

In collaboration with Z-Corp, designers at NIKE used one of their printers to give Lebron, and the design team, a better idea of how the shoe was going to look.

As you can see, the design for the Lebron X has come a long way fromthe original model printed by Z-Corp.  In fact looking around the internet you can find numerous versions of the shoe. From Iron Man themed ‘Bron X’s' to 'Big Bang'-themed pairs. Apparently, the iterations of the Lebron X design are infinite.
