As the season evolves, so does LeBron James. With each passing game, LeBron James slowly transforms into a leaner and faster athlete, adapting to the rapid-fire pace of the game and strengthening himself as the competition grows into fierce battle. To assist LeBron’s quest for a championship i the Nike LeBron 8 V/2, a lighter version of the Nike LeBron 8 featuring a full-Flywire upper shell and a TPU-enforced lightweight mesh in key areas, placed specifically to adjust to LeBron’s physicality. The V/2 also features a perforated sockliner for breathability, a Cushlon footbed for maximum comfort, and a basketball-specific 360-Max Air unit for supreme cushioning.
As LeBron changes throughout the course of the season, his fire and passion remain – and that is mirrored in the V/2 as the Lion logo and the figure-8 lace-eyelet are common denominators with the LeBron 8 V/1. The Nike LeBron 8 V/2 was officially debuted on Christmas Day when LeBron James wore a Christmas-inspired colorway during his match-up against the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers, with a special release held at select locations, but on January 8th, the LeBron 8 V/2 will see a wider release in the White/Sport Red-Black colorway.
