lebron 8 v2 portland pe Nike LeBron 8 V2 Portland PE on eBay

Ever wonder what would have happened if the Portland Trailblazers drafted Kevin Durant over Greg Oden? Or for that matter, had they drafted Michael Jordan in lieu of Sam Bowie? There will always be a lot of  ”what ifs” in Portland, but despite the missed draft-day potential, the Blazers have plenty to be proud of in terms of their draft selections. That said, what if some of your favorite players donned their undeniably alluring team colors? Imagine Kobe’s, Penny’s, or KD’s in their signature black and red? Though many of those colors are easily achievable thanks to NIKEiD, the LeBron 8 V2 “Portland” PE actually exist, and LeBron himself wore them against PDX a few years back. Check them out below and peep the listing from heatcheckin on eBay.

nike lebron 8 v2 pink Nike LeBron 8 V2 Think Pink Sample on eBay

LeBron James’ sneakers took a break from the “Think Pink” theme this go round – there was no LeBron 11 of that sort, unless you count the NIKEiD creations that we bet some of you have. Reminding us of how good that combination has been in the past is this pair of the LeBron 8 that was never released. The shoes come with the V2 build and more than enough pink to satisfy the Breast Cancer Awareness theme. Stay with us after the break for a full set of angles on this rare pair and then buy them yourself from sneakerarena on eBay.

Nike LeBron 8 V/2 “L23″ Sample

Whatever final products come out of the Nike factory line is sure to be impressive, but we don’t get to see much in terms of the middle ‘sample’ phase, which could be largely different from what we have on our feet. For a signature shoe like the Nike LeBron 8, there’s no doubt that Jason Petrie and Co. had to go back to the drawing board one time or another (especially after LeBron made a game-changing announcement), and seeing this sample of the LeBron 8 V/2 Cool Grey proves that a few details, like the external layer on the Flywire panels and toe, the patent leather on the lace plackets, and most importantly, the L23 logo on the heel, were shelved for good. Take a good look at this earlier pre-Decision LeBron 8 V/2 sample below and see what the final selling price for this version was by checking out the full listing from dragoman on eBay.

Nike LeBron 8 V2 “Flamingo” Mid Look-See Sample

The Nike LeBron 8 ‘Flamingo’ aka ‘Miami Nights’ was designed as a celebration shoe for LeBron James first NBA Championship last Summer, but as we all know, that prediction was one year too early. Regardless, the ‘Flamingo’ Low-tops still released as a mere special-edition and is among the best of the LeBron 8 chapter of releases, but Jason Petrie once showed us a ‘Mid’ version (that consequently set the world of LeBron followers on fire). Here we have another look at this Look-See sample of this controversial shoe, and clearly, the Mids were never meant to go beyond ‘look and see’. But if these did release, would a LeBron 8 V/2 ‘Flamingo’ Mid be one of the greatest LeBrons ever, perhaps rivaling the ‘South Beach’? Let us know what you think. Photos: lookseegoods

Nike LeBron 8 V/2 ‘Hardwood Classic’ Sample

‘What if’ is a question sports fans and sneakerheads love to ask.  Talking heads on TV and the net handle the former debates while color-swap customizers take the latter into their own hands, very often borrowing palettes from LeBron James’ signature line.  Guys like Mache, El Cappy and C2 specialize in appropriating noteworthy styles, but almost all of those manifested on the LeBron 8 came on the first version, not its Flywire-shelled follow-up.  So while nobody gave us a handcrafted look at the vintage Cleveland Cavaliers colors on the Nike LeBron 8 V/2, it looks like Nike Basketball would have been ready for a scenario whereby ‘The Decision’ kept King James in his home state.  This fan favorite ‘Hardwood Classics’ palette features speckling on its full-length Max Air cushion just like the Air Max LeBron VII Hyperfuse ‘HWC’ sample we saw a year ago that might be this one’s closest kin.  Click through for a better look at one of the gems from a season that could have been and stick with Sneaker News for more rare Nike LeBron samples.  Photos: LRJ23

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!

Nike LeBron 8 V/2 – Miami Heat ‘Alternate’ PE

February 1st, 2012 by | 7 comments

nike lebron 8 v2 miami heat alternate pe 3 Nike LeBron 8 V/2   Miami Heat Alternate PE

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.
