The Nike LeBron 8 was the beginning of a new era as the silhouette marked the inception of the Big Three down in the 305. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh took their talents to South Beach and secured two championships for the Miami Heat.
To no one’s surprise, Nike brought the best it had to offer for The King’s newest silhouette. The Nike LeBron 8 featured a Max Air 360 unit tailored specifically for the hardwood using Nike’s iconic Air Max technology.
The Nike LeBron 8 made its print during the 2010-2011 NBA season. Ten years later, the Nike LeBron 8 is getting a “Lakers” look. The colorway is a follow-up to the Nike LeBron 7 “Lakers” that recently released as Nike is tapping into Bron’s earlier models with that legendary purple and gold.
Official images of the Nike LeBron 8 “Lakers” have surfaced as we near its December 15 release date. Keep it locked on Nice Kicks for every upcoming sneaker release date including LeBron models. In other LeBron 8 news, get ready for the Nike LeBron 8 “South Beach” re-release.
