  • Nike is selling LeBron James’ new basketball shoes for $315. No, that’s not a typo. Nike blames the absurd price on the “increased costs of materials” such as cotton and shipping costs. The ‘LeBron X Nike Plus’ shoes debuted during the USA vs Spain gold medal game at the 2012 London Olympics.

    LeBron’s 1st sneaker release was in 2003. That shoe sold for $110. The price increase comes as Nike continues its free-fall in the stock market. Nike’s margins are now lower than most of its direct competitors, including rival Adidas, according to the Wall Street Journal.

    Critics of Nike’s price increases are taking to social networking websites to urge others not to buy the high-priced sneakers.

    Sportswear giant Adidas is catching heat for “promoting slavery” by manufacturing ‘shackle shoes’ trainers.

    The JS Roundhouse mids feature the LA Lakers’ orange and purple colors with orange cuffs links that are similar to the shackles worn by Africans during the lucrative slave trade in the south.

    The promotional copy for the shoe ads posted on Facebook reads: “Got a sneaker game so hot you lock your kicks to your ankles?”

    But activists and Facebook users reacted with anger at the premise of Adidas promoting slavery with the shackle shoes.

    More than 2000 Facebook users labeled the shoes “offensive” and referred to Adidas as “ignorant” for the insensitive promotional campaign.

    Rap producer Kanye West apparently didn’t have to resort to a publicity stunt to sell his NIKE Air Yeezy 2 sneakers. The troubled rapper’s newest NIKE design was the subject of a fierce bidding war on eBay yesterday. The shoes, which aren’t available to the general public until Saturday, sold to the highest bidder for $90,300 on Wednesday. There are reports that sneaker enthusiasts are already lining up to buy the limited edition sneakers on Saturday. That’s good news for Kanye who is still heated that Louis Vuitton didn’t want his designs. But one Nike Superstore won’t be carrying the Air Yeezy’s on Saturday. A rep at the Nike Superstore at Lenox Mall told that the decision was made not to sell the Air Yeezy’s because Kanye’s fans would be too disruptive to neighboring businesses in the moderately upscale mall.

    Much is being made of President Obama hawking “hoodies” on his campaign website. The hooded sweatshirts, along with other clothing emblazoned with the Obama name and logo, are being sold at

    But conservative bloggers wonder if the sales of the hoodies are an attempt by Obama’s camp to capitalize off of the headlines surrounding the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, who was wearing a grey hoodie when he was gunned down.

    Martin’s killer George Zimmerman, 28, claimed he shot the 17-year-old Miami high school student in self defense on Feb. 26 in Sanford, Florida.

    Obama, who said “If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon,” sent out a tweet on his account announcing the sale of the hoodies on Monday.

    “Is the President trying to capitalize off the death of Martin?,” wrote conservative blogger Allah Pundit.

    Our president couldn’t possibly be so odious as to try and cash in on the case, could he?, wrote another conservative blogger, who accused Obama of “pimping hoodies”.

    He added: “How long until Obama’s showing up in public wearing one?”
