The LeBron P.S. debuted last year with LeBron James’ seventh signature shoe, a Zoom Air-cushioned version of the Air Max LeBron VII. It gave the opportunity for LeBrons fans to enjoy a second pair of kicks for the year while allowing the creative minds at Nike Basketball to play around with some new designs and ideas. Nike Basketball switched it up this season by releasing the LeBron 8 V2, a lighter version of the LeBron 8 V1 that, while utilizing Max Air, featured a lightweight and breathable Flywire Shell upper. The Miami Heat are certainly Postseason bound so how did Jason Petrie come up with an even lighter and equally explosive package?
Here’s a preview look at the next LeBron 8 signature shoe, which could be either the P.S. version of the V3; in these teasers, you can see that Fuse material is used on the upper while the cushioning is comprised of an impressive combination of Max Air and Zoom. The outsole traction also receives a considerable makeover adopting a shapely construction, alluding to a heel-Max Air and forefoot-Zoom Air cushion set-up.
