NIKEiD continues to grow, granting customers an opportunity to customize their favorite Nike products from kicks to clothes. Earlier this week the much talked about Nike LeBron X hit the site with options to create one that is NIKE+ enabled to measure your performance, or to pass on the plus and cop a pair at a lower price-point. Either way, the real fun is in playing with all of the customizable options, from choosing the colors for the upper, tongue, laces, and lining, to the flywire and airbag. There is even an option to create a speckled midsole, as if that’s even a question.
The 12ozProphet Team set out to design the freshest pair of Nike LeBron X iD’s around. Initially, we based our design on our signature colors, keeping in clean and simple, pretty much all black everything with red outsole, and lining and white flywire and speckles. NIKEiD gives you two options where you can personalize your kicks, the Collar iD where you could place a word or name 8 characters or less and the Heel iD where you could feature a two-digit number. Gotta rep the dirty dozen, hence the discreet red “12” on the inside heel. Scroll through the gallery of photos above to see how this design turned out.
We were ready to hit the checkout except there was one thing we didn’t take into account… Volt was an available color for some features of the shoe. If you’re not familiar with the term, “volt” is what Nike calls the neon yellow color popularized by the Air Max 95s, and being classic kick enthusiasts we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to incorporate it into our design. We flipped the script and changed the outsole and lining to volt and switched the tongue to dark grey to reference the 95 color-way. We switched up our custom “12” Heel iD to the LeBron x Graphic, a tonal design that features an X depicted as an infinity symbol. Now our design was complete! The latest in Nike technology with a nod to the past.
