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 8 vs. LeBron VII ’112′ Comparison

nike lebron 8 vii 112 comp 10 Nike LeBron 8 vs. LeBron VII 112 Comparison

Last week featured some great Nike LeBron 8 samples in the form of a classic denim colorway as well as DJ Clark Kent’s celebrated ’112′ theme. Here we have a detailed look at the latter version as well as a quick side-by-side comparison with the Nike Air Max LeBron VII ’112‘ – a shoe that, like the LeBron 8 ’112′, never released to the public. We can see the recurring themes, like the black/grey/volt color scheme and the use of elephant print and 3M-reflective material, so which of the two is better comes down to which model you prefer. The Air Max LeBron VII’s got the sleek volt-colored Flywire on the upper, while the LeBron 8 has healthy helpings of elephant print on the No Flywire panels. Check out the extra comparison shots below and let us know which version you prefer. via lilpennymagicfan on ISS.

Nike LeBron 8 ’112′ – New Images

nike lebron 8 112 new images nigel 02 Nike LeBron 8 112   New Images

Though not exactly an ‘original’ colorway, DJ Clark Kent‘s ’112′ motif was brought to life when he was given the great opportunity to colorize a ‘Ones’ Pack, which featured the Air Force 1, Air Max 1, and Air Trainer 1 in a mind-boggling colorway of Grey/Neon with bountiful portions of elephant print and 3M reflective material. It’s one of those dream colorways that sneakerheads can only wish for, but Clark, a sneakerhead himself, made one for the people and created an instant classic. The LeBron 8′s been one of Clark’s favorites (at least he’s showing them off the most), and his Nike LeBron 8 ’112′ made some noteworthy headlines here on Sneaker News when it was first broadcast earlier this week. Now we know that Queens-native BMX-rider Nigel Sylvester owns a pair, because Clark himself gave him his own last night during Sylvester’s G-Shock party. Check out the extra shot of this sick new colorway below and let us know if this is the best ’112′ sneaker to date. via NT.

Nike LeBron 8 ‘Denim’ – Detailed Images

Denim material is typically reserved for lifestyle shoes (the Air Force 1 Low Premium being a great example). It’s not exactly a breathable material (unless you’re ‘that guy’ who plays ball in Levi’s), but as high-tech a shoe as the LeBron 8 is, it’s worn on the streets as much as it is on the court. Here’s a detailed look at the Nike LeBron 8 ‘Denim’, designed by Nike LeBron connoisseur DJ Clark Kent; it features an unusual blocking on the upper, as only the forefoot Flywire panel is covered in denim. The gum/gold accents are a nice touch as well, adding that rustic, classic-American appeal. Would you cop if these released? Take a look below and let us know what you think of the Denim-uppered LeBron 8. via lilpennymagicfan on ISS.

nike lebron 8 denim sample new images 03 DJ Clark Kent x Nike LeBron 8 Denim James Dean

Just yesterday Sneaker News gave you a look at the Nike LeBron 8 ‘Denim’ sample, which featured a full denim upper with gold contrast stitching. We also learned that this sample was designed by none other than celebrity sneaker aficionado and Nike LeBron sample extraordinaire DJ Clark Kent. Here we have a first look at the entire shoe, and as you can see, the denim material is used on the entire upper except for the rear Flywire panel. The gum outsole gives this classic American fashion inspired LeBron 8 an even more vintage look – almost like the jeans-and-Timbs appeal. Take a look below and let us know if you’d cop these if they ever released! via Air_Andy.

Nike LeBron 8 ’112′

August 8th, 2011 by | 42 comments

nike lebron 8 112 1 Nike LeBron 8 112

LeBron James’ eighth Nike Basketball signature sneaker will be remembered for its three different versions, with the ‘South Beach’ Nike LeBron 8s among the hottest releases in recent memory, and now here’s an exclamation point on the end that might go down as the quiet king of LeBron VIII colorways.  We already knew that grey, black and neon looks great on LeBrons thanks to the various Dunkman drops and with DJ Clark Kent’s 112 motif takes its turn on the most luxurious of the three designs.  Rich black nubuck, silver reflective 3M, neon on almost all the polymer elements; this is just a sick design, so it’s unfortunate they’ll likely end up a ‘friends & family’ inside deal.  Click through to see more since that’s probably as close as you’ll ever get to a pair, and let us know how the ’112′ LeBron 8s stack up against the other colorways we’ve seen this year.  via Air_Andy/R3TRO
