Nike are Bringing Back the LeBron 8 ‘Gym Red’
No doubt ‘The King’ LeBron James is enjoying his offseason after leading the Los Angeles Lakers to their first NBA championship since 2010. Aside from another ring, ‘Bron can celebrate the release of his new Nike LeBron 18 signature, as well as the return of the fan-favourite LeBron 8. And now we’ve got news that the famed ‘Gym Red’ colourway of the latter is ready to return.
The performance baller features a classic combo of leathers and Flywire-bolstered synthetics, with the fiery ‘Gym Red’ tones dressing most of the upper. Meanwhile, bright yellow trim adds a subtle contrast on the eyestays, tongue’s debossed lion logo, and the insoles, where a leather patch appears with a themed ‘Witness’ graphic. Swooshes are done up in black with ‘Cucumber Calm’ piping, placed behind the lateral quarter panel and moving up onto the heels. Additionally, more black is used for the midsole’s full-length Air Max cushioning unit, which is housed between the black EVA foam and a glow-in-the-dark green outsole. It’s certainly a heavy-hitting combination!
The Nike LeBron 8 ‘Gym Red’ is yet to receive an official release date, but it’ll likely hit Nike and select retailers before the end of 2020. Confirmation to come!
