Yesterday Sneaker News gave you a first look at the Nike LeBron 8 V2, an secondary version of the LeBron 8 in a lighter Ashiko-boot style upper material. Before that style releases, the primary version featuring leather or suede uppers will hit stores, like this Black/Anthracite (also dubbed the ‘Triple Black‘). Arriving in stores this December is the all-black-everything colorway of the LeBron 8, featuring a tonal black upper and lower end with a clear Air unit bubble. The all-black colorway has been a tradition in the Nike LeBron line starting from the Zoom LeBron IV so no big surprise here. Perhaps a LeBron 8 V2 Triple Black will arrive as well, as LeBron James was seen wearing an all-black colorway of what now appears to be the V2 during a the King’s Academy Camp in San Diego back in July. Expect the Triple-Black LeBron 8 to hit Nike Basketball retailers like Foot Locker on December 11th.
