The slide-out box returns once again for the LeBron eighth installment, and this time we get a first look at the packaging for the upcoming Nike Air Max LeBron VIII. It has been mentioned before that the LeBron VIII has more of a “luxurious” look than the LeBron VII, and the same could be said for the box; featuring juxtaposed side-portraits of LeBron James and his animalistic alter-ego the lion on the top face of the box, it appears that no other graphics are present on any other side – outside of a centered and minimalistic swoosh, a noticeable difference from the VII’s urban-inspired collage of imagery whic featured a number of his home-town landmarks. In this preview, we also get another look at the China Edition of the Air Max LeBron VIII, as well as new logo on the heel, something we could expect for upcoming special colorways like the Christ The King, Akron, SVSM, and more. Take a look at this gallery after the jump and let us know what you think of the box design, and be sure to check up on the LeBron VIII Release Dates. via LRJ23.
