These Nike Shoes Made Out of Cork Are a Cause for Celebration

We already know that cork is the most amazing material in the world to keep your wine tasty but how does the material perform elsewhere? Like, for example, in shoes. Check out these new Nike Lebron X Cork shoes. Yes, shoes that are made from cork. It looks fantastic.


If you've been following basketball, you'd know that LeBron James, the best basketball player in the world, just won his very first NBA championship last season. Nike decided to celebrate his bottle poppin' victory by remixing his shoes in a material synonymous with celebration and victory (or at least the sound of a cork popping out is synonymous with celebration).

I think the cork actually comes together really well. Nike Sportswear was able to turn a performance basketball shoe into a design that looks really great off the court too. Plus, I'm a sucker for swapping uncommon materials into shoes. Check it out. [Nike]
