Nicknames by definition are informal created references. No one's arguing that. When given the actual facts behind something though that's completely counter to what's being used, then you're essentially admitting to being willfully ignorant despite it. Which again, that's up to everyone to make that choice. Not a huge deal. Just looking to get the accurate info out there to as many people as possible. What people do with it from there is their call. This isn't a case of a...
Note on the (misinformed) "Dolphins" nickname: The custom iD Dolphins people have created are dope but the retail version coming out is 100% NOT Dolphins inspired. That pair is the "Miami Setting" model. Entire LeBron X "Miami Setting" color backstory is on CK: http://counterkicks.com/2012/11/exclusive-you-could-call-the-lebron-x-setting-miami-dolphins-inspired-but-youd-be-100-wrong/ Keep in mind the diamond storyline is what the retail cws this year has been based on....
Erik Siemers story in Portland Business Journal on today's Jordan 11 Bred release: http://www.bizjournals.com/portland/blog/threads_and_laces/2012/12/nikes-latest-retro-jordan-release.html
Yeah, last year's Concord XI was produced in about the same amount of pairs, 500,000k.More normal retro releases throughout the year are far less, probably more in the 40-100k range.Also read the original CounterKicks story as I detailed in there a better current comparison. Nike RARELY ever releases or publicizes production numbers, aside from the super limited hyperstrikes (1 of 100, 1 of 12, etc). On mass production launches, they just have a history of not giving out...
Some retailers are certainly stockpiling for a "surprise" restock later on, with 500,000 pairs made. Like how Finish Line for Black Friday magically came up with the Concord XIs again for sale on their site. Nike and others do the same. Only problem is you don't know when these restocks happen, and even if you do, you're probably already too late. It's a combo of fast fingers and perfect timing, so your chances are slim again on that front.

Here's the color story behind the "Prism" X. It's actually an artist collab shoe: http://counterkicks.com/2012/10/exclusive-the-artist-co-lab-created-story-behind-the-nike-lebron-x-prism/ We also laid out the full color backstory to the "Green Diamond" X (or "Dunkman" if you will) with a strong hint at the coming Volt X in 2013: http://counterkicks.com/2012/10/exclusive-the-heroic-dunkman-story-behind-nike-lebron-x-green-diamond/
You guys, there is no "Black Diamond" shoe. That never existed to begin with, and I commented to that extent in the previous thread. That was always the Carbon shoe, some retailers were just pitched it wrong. That name should be dropped from the list. I think JM kept using that term and gave it more weight than it actually ever was supposed to have. Carbon is the actual inspiration behind that black based shoe and you can look at the medial graphic again for it which refer...
