This year’s LeBron James signature from Nike Basketball hasn’t drawn as many color swap customs as the first of last year’s trio, and you know the Nike LeBron 8 is a favorite for sneaker artists when you see them pop up with a new rendition nearly a year after the debut.  The Eights aren’t old enough to be ready for any kind of retro run, so seeing this kind of longevity suggests we’re looking at a model that may emerge as historically significant for sticking around so long.  This new ‘Oreo’ LeBron 8 custom by Dunk specialist ROM for notable YouTube sneakerhead Dubstepslap415 departs from his typically intricate detailing, though you can see the attention paid to this simplest of high-contrast designs with the careful application of speckling on the midsole and Flywire panels.  Like his only other LeBron 8 customs, these are a 1 of 1 which is quite a bit smaller than the run of 2010 Air Jordan VIs upon which this design was based.  Let us know if you’d buy them when you click through to see more photos, and where they rank amongst ROM‘s own customs and the apparently still growing bounty of custom LeBron 8s.  via Hypemagnet

damn these are hot, its sad JS gets money with his cracked out designs but true talent is limited to an article on a sneaker site. prolly would be one of the best colorways of the 8's, and that is a huge statement.
