Signature shoes are tied with the games greatest players with potential to succeed at the highest level with a certain marketability that reaches beyond the sport alone. LeBron James is certainly one of the more celebrated players in recent history, with a firm position in pop-culture and media gossip as well as one of the biggest offseason hooplas in the history of professional sports. We can delve into LeBron’s character another time and focus more on the kicks this time around, because in this latest feature of the Nike LeBron 8, we can see this high-tech shoe deconstructed into layers, with each of its components viewable with a separate microscope. Emphasis is on the basketball-specific cushioning and the midsole construction, as we’ve gone from the a slightly visible Air Max 1 Air Unit to this large-volume 360 Air unit we see today. The multi-layer construction of the upper can also be seen, as the LeBron 8 isn’t just materials on top of materials but a deliberate and calculated placement of each specific texture. We’ve seen the Air Max LeBron VII in pieces so take a look at the deconstructed LeBron 8 after the jump. via Kenlu.
