A sudden snowfall hit the Oregon area (a region that almost never gets any of the white goodness) and UofO students enjoyed the delayed midterm schedule while Nike designer Jason Petrie peered out at the ‘winter wonderland’ from the comfort of his office chair. While he tweeted his desire to be ‘boarding on Mt. Hood, we sneakerheads were caught agaze at the Nike LeBron samples lined up along the window sills of his office. A quick viewing and you’ll spot a ‘Miami Dolphins’ colorway of the Nike LeBron 8 V/2 Low, the LeBron VII Cleats on the far left, a trio of ‘Volt’-ed out LeBrons, and a blazing-hot orange/blue at the very top. Quite a sight to see, but we know Jason’s got a lot more to show off (hint, hint), so check out some close-up shots of these never-before-seen samples below and let us know what catches your eye the most!
PETRIE BUSTED!!! Lebron 9 lows is a indeed SPIN OFF version of the Air Max 360 BB Low. See close up pix (2nd pix) showing 360 BB Low "Peach" and LBJ9 Lt Blue/Orange. But I will cop that Blue/orange if dropped.
Isn't the far right of the volt trio and the all blue and all mango ones at the bottom Air Maxx BB 360 Lows?
Dolphin colorway look dope. Only thing is, since its an VIII, we won't see them for about 5-10 years till they retro em. If they do.
I honestly hope they retro them eventually! They can skip the 9's imo.The "Cool Grey" Lebron 8 was the first pair of shoes i had bought in a long time, in comfort terms up there with air max 95+ running shoe; but durable close to a Foamposite. One of my favorite shoes all time. They should slap that Miami colorway on the Nike Lebron ELITE, give it a day or 2 and SN will have the exclusive....
U mean TEAL and Orange V2 lows?? Cuz the Baby Blue BB low 360s and Orange bb low 360 released WOW SMFH!
