The LeBron 8 V2 is the second installment of the Nike LeBron 8 series. A lighter weight construction is used on the LeBron 8 V2 as leather is replaced by mesh, more Flywire, and a perforated sockliner. Full-length Air supports the model and is seen through a window on the outsole. This model is meant to represent the “chase” part of the season and thus uses a lighter, fiercer construction.
LeBron James debuted the LeBron 8 V2 on Christmas Day. The Nike LeBron 8 V2 will be his model of choice until the playoffs begin were he will switch into the Nike LeBron 8 P.S.. A handful of popular colorways of the LeBron 8 V2 have been made including the “Stoplight Pack”, “Cool Grey”, “All-Star”, and “Entourage”. On court and off court the LeBron 8 V2 has been embraced.
