Nike Sportswear designed special edition LeBron James sneaker

Daily Dose: LeBron X Cork pays tribute to James' NBA Championship

Nike Sportswear designers created the LeBron X Cork, a lifestyle sneaker that pays tribute to LeBron James' first NBA championship with the Miami Heat.  / Nike

What: LeBron X Cork
When: Feb. 23
The Scoop: Leather, rubber, mesh — predictable sneaker materials. One that's not: cork. Yet that's exactly what you'll find in the LeBron X Cork, fresh from the vault of Nike Sportwear.

The premium sneaker's distinctive look is derived from actual cork, as in what you’d find plugged into a bottle of champagne. The design pays tribute to LeBron James’ first championship with the Miami Heat.

The lifestyle sneaker’s features are similar to the LeBron X, which includes a breathable and lightweight upper and Flywire, technology that cages your foot and helps keep it secure.

Get your hands on the kick come Feb. 23.
