Nike's LeBron sneakers to test $300 limit
from The Wall Street Journal
Nike Inc. is raising the prices of its sneakers, assuming that the brand's cachet will carry it through a period when many of its shoppers are scrounging for discounts. As labor, materials and shipping costs increase, Nike is raising shoe and clothing prices by 5-10 percent, analysts say. A test of the approach comes this fall, when Nike will debut its priciest sneaker yet an expected $315 LeBron James basketball shoe that includes its own electronics.
