Browsing the "Nike LeBron 8" Tag

NIKE LEBRON 8 The Nike LeBron 8 is the eighth sneaker in the mainline LeBron James lineup for Nike, a silhouette designed by Jason Petrie that arrived at a historical moment in James' career as he left his longtime home with the Cleveland Cavaliers to play for the Miami Heat. This decision was famously captured in what is hands down the most sought after colorway of the sneaker, the Nike LeBron 8 'South Beach'.

Continue reading to see the imagery and give us a shout in the comments if you’ve got an opinion on LeBron retros for the future.

best nike lebron low releases Classics On The Low? The 10 Best Low Top LeBrons

We’re at that point in the Nike LeBron release timeline that comes after the Elite and regular season pairs where the Low is the most prolific model in the range. In the past couple of years that period has been particularly exciting, as the Low editions of King James’ past couple of signature entries have gotten more and more creative, and have in turn established themselves as an important piece of the Nike LeBron puzzle. On top of that, LeBron himself hasn’t been shy of wearing the lower-cut versions throughout the hotter months. In celebration of those pairs, we’re taking a look back at some of the best Nike LeBron Lows to ever release.

When thinking about the rare sneaker samples that had collectors in the frenzy over the last few years, the name of DJ Clark Kent immediately comes to mind. In 2009, the Brooklyn-based producer and DJ got the opportunity to collaborate with Nike for a special release commonly referred to as the “112 Pack”, which features the Air Force 1, Air Max 1, and Air Trainer 1 dressed up in an incredible combination of Volt tones, Elephant Print, and Reflective panels. The three details are indeed honored figments of legendary Nikes of the past, but to see them all together at once? Gotta give credit to Clark for that.

lebron florida colorways Statement Made: How Floridas Influence Elevated The Nike LeBron

The simple, team-based colorways will no longer suffice for a signature sneaker line. Sure any given player shoe is going to be equipped with the colors of the player’s team at the time, but the hungry market has demanded a load of releases that extend beyond the simple “Home” and “Away” make ups. The Nike LeBron line has always answered that call with creative pairs that speak to LeBron’s personal history, his trials, tribulations – even his favorite cereal at times. And ever since he took his talents to South Beach, the Florida-inspired colorways have been a key part of that equation.

LeBron’s signature line taking its place in our annual tourney is a sign of his progression and how his signature line has ascended to the premier spot in basketball performance. This year’s bracket followed the original ultimate grail competition, two years focusing on different Air Jordan eras and last year’s Foamposite lineup. The fact that any man other than Michael could fill four regions by himself is further evidence of the King’s status.
