Is a stone lion tougher than one made of bone and fur? Sounds like a question for Dwight Schrute, but this is one of the details you might consider when choosing which colorway of the Nike LeBron 8 you plan to purchase. LeBron’s lion motif represents the character traits he most values and has been a major part of his signature sneaker line with Nike Basketball, but for this latest pair, we’re seeing a different direction based on its status as the China Edition LeBron VIII. Featuring an embossed Chinese stone tiger on the tongue, these crisp red-on-white kicks exude the power and prestige the famed tiger statues are said to represent. These are set to release on October 26th, but you can already get yours on eBay.
