While the Nike Zoom KD III Christmas edition is on the bright side, the Nike Air Max LeBron VIII V2 Christmas Day takes a more conventional approach this year with its colorway. LeBron’s Christmas Day colorway of the Nike Air Max VIII V2 will be on his feet as the Miami Heat take on the Los Angeles Lakers in what many expected to be an NBA Finals preview. Throughout the season however, both teams have struggled to get things to that Championship form. Regardless the matchup should be nothing short of greatness either way.

The V2 edition of the Nike Air Max LeBron VIII features a light weight performance enhancement thanks to Flywire technology and a mesh-like paneling that replaces the leather uppers on the original. The perforated underlay aims to enhance breathability versus the original leather versions as well. Of course this colorway is more about the colors then the technology, and with that in mind the Varsity Red and Gorge Green detailing on the laces and lion crest on the outsole couldn’t be more Christmas.

Available at Eastbay on Christmas day, December 25th by calling 1.800.826.2205 at 7AM CST to order.
