The Nike LeBron 8 ‘Lakers’ is a Vibrant AffairRelease: TBC
The Nike LeBron 8 ‘Lakers’ is a vibrant affair, giving Los Angeles Lakers fans the perfect opportunity to flaunt their team colours. The design celebrates the Lakers’ latest NBA championship in true style, dressing in a striking combo of ‘Court Purple’ and ‘University Gold’, while additional contrast arrives via the white midsole and laces.
It’s not the first time LeBron James has repped his team colours this year, with a mismatching rendition of the LeBron 7 emerging earlier this year. Personal touches on this LeBron 8 include the lion head logo on the tongue, his signature on the heal, and another lion head in the middle of the outsole.
When the LeBron 8 first hit the hardwood back in 2010, Nike heralded it as a classically crafted silhouette that had been inspired by the shell of a dress shoe. With a basketball-specific Max Air 360 unit down below for elite cushioning, the Flywire tech up above delivered the perfect combination of lightweight comfort and lockdown control.
Pairs of the Nike LeBron 8 ‘Lakers’ are expected to hit Nike and selected Swoosh stockists before the end of this year, so keep your eyes open for this one.
