Here’s another look at LeBron’s eighth signature shoe, the Nike Air Max LeBron VIII (8). Not long ago Sneaker News showed you a video teaser preview as well as a detailed overview of the shoe and many of our readers deemed it as a mere upgrade to the LeBron VII. Considering the success of the VII, there really was no reason to start from the ground up but structural improvements have been made, most notably the carbon-fiber Flywire’d outrigger. Also new is the suede toe which was completely absent on the Air Max LeBron VII. We’ve already seen a leather version so a patent leather upper wouldn’t be much of a surprise as well. Now that the LeBron VIII design has been established, it’s now time to think about colorways, so stick with Sneaker News for more info on the LeBron VIII and we’ll keep you on top of everything. Marquee Sole has a size 10 available for purchase so head there if you need these early!
