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'.

nike lebron witness history exhibit Nike LeBron PE Display for Witness History Tour

While the Jordan Brand athletes head out to China and Kobe enjoys some downtime in Europe, LeBron James and Nike has decided to hit up the Philippines for a special “Witness History” Tour, which features some cool in-store events as well as some live demos of the King on a basketball court. His time out there has already resulted in a couple of killer sneaker exhibits, including that set of incredible customs and this, a collection of player exclusives and rare pairs from King James’ career (definitely some gems in here, most of which can be seen in Justin Amazing’s collection). Starting all the way back at the Nike Air Zoom Generation, the display includes hard to track down fare like the Nike Zoom LeBron IV “Fruity Pebbles”, the “Denim” Nike LeBron 8, and the not-quite-player-exclusive Nike LeBron X “MVP”. See the sneakers after the jump and let us know if you own any of these rare LeBrons, and stay tuned for more recaps from Nike and Jordan Brand’s plans overseas.

nike lebron 8 black widow customs Nike LeBron 8 Black Widow by Dank Customs

The Nike LeBron 8 was LeBron James’ first shoe following “The Decision”, and hence the sneaker to help him make the transition over to the black and red palette. Adding on to the crop of Miami colored retail releases that fell for that shoe in its initial run is this, a pair from Dank Customs that uses the same shades to different effect. Shown is the Nike LeBron 8 “Black Widow”, a spooky spider pair that sees its titular arachnid stamped onto the ankle collar. See full images of this new pair from Dank Customs and tell us where the Nike LeBron 8 ranks amongst King James’ post-Cavs silhouettes.

nike lebron 8 south beach 8 5 customs by twizz Nike LeBron 8 South Beach 8.5 Customs by Twizz

For as long as the Nike LeBron 8 “South Beach” will remain such a coveted pick up, we will continue to see the colorway ported over to many a model in the custom scene. This new pair from Twizz Customs actually keeps the colorway at home on the Nike LeBron 8 model, but mixes in the later “Miami Vice” look from the Nike LeBron 9. The result has a sort of splattered look to and much more black going on than the original “South Beach”. See the Nike LeBron 8 “South Beach 8.5″ after the jump and let us know if you’re feeling this belated tribute from the hands of Twizz.

Nike LeBron 8 “Flamingo/Miami Nights” Sample on eBay

miami nights lebron sample 7 Nike LeBron 8 Flamingo/Miami Nights Sample on eBay

Somewhere down the line the ‘Flamingo’ colorway of the LeBron took a drastic turn when it went from ‘Mid’ form to the Summer-ready ‘Low’, but was that such a tragic move? Quite honestly, the energetic colorway that featured aqua and hot orange gradients sprinkled with black confetti would look good on any model, but with Mids arguably being a ‘hotter’ commodity, a Nike LeBron 8 ‘Flamingo’ in this Mid build for could’ve rivaled that year’s South Beach as the valedictorian of that class. Of course, these Look-See samples are still up for grabs as long as you’re swimming in a pool of cash, so give these babies one more look after the jump and take the plunge by copping this sample pair from lilpennymagicfan on eBay.

nike lebron 8 bruce lee customs summary Nike LeBron 8 Bruce Lee Customs by Laptop LaSane

The whole Bruce Lee theme is one that has been a distinctly Kobe thing for a while now, with plenty of silhouettes from the Black Mamba’s line borrowing the black and yellow pairing. We’ve seen one instance recently of that theme apparently bleeding over into the LeBron category with these Nike LeBron 9 Elites, a port that seems to have struck a chord with customizer Laptop LaSane. Here he brings the Game of Death colorway over onto the Nike LeBron 8, dipping an all white pair with the look and throwing in some red via the laces and down into the lining. Click through for the full photos of this custom and let us know if you’d cop the Nike LeBron 8 ‘Bruce Lee’ at retail. Photos: Paint or Thread

We don’t need to remind you that DJ Clark Kent‘s Nike LeBron game (as well as his connections over at Beaverton) are as strong as steel. He displayed his own personal collection of 1-of-1s, PEs, and Samples of the LeBron 8 before the darn shoe even launched, but in his most recent ‘PeepAndWeepWednesday’ submission, he told us that he’s still got the ‘Bron 8 on his mind. Here’s a look at a sample colorway of the Nike LeBron 8 in a ‘Knicks’ colorway that was first seen on display at Sneaker Pimps back in late 2010; it features a white leather upper with royal blue on the carbon fiber panels and the interior lining as well as an hot orange blaze on the swoosh border, outsole, Max Air unit, and other accents on the upper. Just yesterday, we showed you a ‘Knicks’ sample of the LeBron 8 V/2 on Jason Petrie’s office window – how do those compare to Clark’s V/1s?
