While the “South Beach” LeBron 8 has been all the buzz early, more colorways are on the way this year. Included in those releases is this pair, which is the complete opposite of the Miami Vice inspired look. Blackout. All Black Everything. Triple Black. Whatever you choose to call them, they’re the perfect LeBrons for you to wear during these colder weather months. Shifting focus from color to texture and materials, the Blackout LeBron 8 features a black leather and nubuck upper, complete with black carbon fiber plates and Flywire paneling. The black midsole houses a black 360-Air bag, which sits above a black rubber outsole. Enough black for you?
If you like what you see, you can reserve your pair here at Eastbay today.
With several colorways and images leaking of the “V2” of the LeBron 8, we’re getting a good look at what LeBron shoes Nike has in store for us this season. However, all the hype continues to surround the “South Beach” colorway of the LeBron 8, which was originally released last month exclusively in Miami. If there’s any shoe worth the hype right now, it’s the “South Beach” LeBron 8. Not only is the colorway on point, but it’s a celebration of LeBron finding a new home in Miami.
The shoe sports Nike’s new shade of teal known as “Retro” throughout the smooth leather upper, while black works along the eyelets, tongue and midsole area. Additionally, pink flash is seen accenting throughout, creating a “Miami Vice” look, that could not have been any more fitting. Completing the look, a filiment green translucent 360 Air unit is seen below.
The “South Beach” edition of the Nike Air Max LeBron 8 will be available in limited quantities from Eastbay, November 19th.
LeBron’s big move to Miami in the off-season has become one of the most anticipated moves in recent basketball history. Teaming up with Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and company in South Beach for the NBA season which kicks off today has gotten LeBron quite a bit of attention. Whether people think he made the right decision or not of course is just a matter of opinion, but no matter what people think, LeBron is doing what he does best and playing basketball. The latest Nike commercial below is a friendly reminder to all of his fans and naysayers, including a nice loving nudge at Charles Barkley’s “Not a Role Model” commercial from 1993. Basketball fans have probably heard how Barkley criticized LeBron James earlier this year for his choice to play for the Miami Heat this season. With all the world now seemingly excited to see LeBron fail, he has new motivation to be himself and lead the Heat for the freshly started NBA Season.
LeBron will be taking to the court this season in his latest signature model, the Nike Air Max LeBron VIII. Loaded with features like Flywire for strength and weight reduction, Air Max cushioning, and herringbone traction the LeBron VIII will uphold the footwear legacy of King James. Details that have become a part of the eight year old signature line return to give this new style a familiar flavor for LeBron’s fans. The lion on the tongue and LeBron’s signature on the heel are just the beginning of the details that let you know whose signature shoe you’re wearing and that their is no reason to question his dynasty.
