Last month Nike Basketball launched the Nike Air Max LeBron VIII, the eighth signature model for LeBron James. While he has been criticized by everyone from myself to Charles Barkley, Nike as they always do, found a way to use the criticism in a positive manner with the ‘What Should I Do?’ commercial we showed you earlier.

It seemed only fitting that we feature LeBron’s signature model in our Eastbay Photo of the Week to highlight the attention to detail and superb quality of this year’s model. From the quality of the stitching to the nubuck details, the Air Max LeBron VIII seems to impress as much as King James does on the court. With the Miami Heat off to a 3-1 start, expectations are high. Will the Kings new shoes live up to expectations?
