Before we close the eighth chapter of the book of Nike LeBron, let’s take one last look at the Nike LeBron 8 P.S.. The LeBron 8 P.S. was an unprecedented third installment of the eighth signature shoe that evolved alongside LeBron James’ game, providing a lighter, more responsive package tailored specifically to his game. In addition, the LeBron 8 P.S. also served as a platform for new technology as well as a segway to the Nike LeBron 9, which also features the 180-degree Max Air and forefoot Zoom Air cushioning system. It’s not ‘breaking news’ when we mention that the LeBron 8 P.S. was the least popular of the three – clearly the ‘Dunkman’ colorway alone wasn’t high-energy enough to elevate the shoe to beyond a performance sneaker. But looking at these unreleased PEs, like the ‘South Beach’ that LeBron wore during the Battle of the I-95 game last weekend or this jaw-dropping Gun Metal colorway that we showed you some time ago, you might be able to see the true potential of this short-lived sneaker. For the LeBron 9, the P.S. series will reach new heights with the $250 Elite, of the LeBron 8 P.S. is any indication (in terms of performance and engineering), we can only expect the very best. Check out this fresh new look at the unreleased Nike LeBron 8 P.S. Gun Metal PE and let us know if you would’ve copped these if they released. via xclusive_sole.
