The most impressive silhouette to have ever received the “Cool Grey” colorway may have just released last month but that doesn’t mean that other styles don’t look good in the popular colorway. Seeing that LeBron James and the Miami Heat have finally begun to live up to expectations, you can’t help but ask, is it the shoes?

It seems that since the Nike Air Max LeBron VIII V2 started showing up on King James’ feet in our Sneaker Watch coverage, Miami has been on a tear, winning 6 straight games and 9 of their last 10. During that stretch, LeBron has been playing at a level that could easily land him MVP honors, and the NBA awarded he and teammate Dwyane Wade a split of the December Player of the Month honors, as well as back-to-back Eastbay Player of the Week honors.

The Cool Grey colorway of the Nike Air Max LeBron VIII V2 is accented with Dark Grey and Metallic Silver details and sits atop a White outsole. The faint silhouette of the lion’s eyes on the tongue seems to have an eerie aggression that mimics the way James has been playing lately. Flywire technology gives the LeBron VIII V2 support and lockdown, while a full length Air Max 360 Unit provides responsive cushioning.

Available February 4th at Eastbay.
