Some NBA teams, like the Miami Heat, rotate among three in-game uniforms. The ‘Home’ White, the ‘Away’ Black, and the ‘Alternate’ which is usually a more pungent color that may or may not mesh well with the team (see: Dallas Mavericks silver alternate jerseys). Miami’s Alternate is typically the fiery red colorway, which perfectly rounds out the exclusive group of PE colorways of the Nike LeBron 8 V/2; we already showed you the ‘Home’ version as well as the ‘Away’ version, so although the LeBron 8 is somewhat of a bit of ‘old’ news, it’s definitely worth showed you the third ‘Alternate’, isn’t it? Given the red upper and the speckled midsole, these are astoundingly similar to the LeBron 8 V/2 ‘Christmas’ that dropped a day after LeBron and the Heat had their way with the Lakers during that highly-publicized Christmas Day match-up. Like what you see (or don’t)? Let us know in the comments section below. via nikelebron/artaphax.
