Following a Game 1 loss to the Phoenix Suns in the 2021 NBA Playoffs, LeBron James and his NIKE, Inc. family have given fans a jolt of excitement by preparing official images of the Nike LeBron 8 V/2 Low “Sprite”.
First released June 2011, the “Treasure Blue/White/Black/Volt” offering harkens back to James’ time on the Miami Heat, arriving right before being bested by Dirk Nowitzki and his Dallas Mavericks squad. While not an official collaboration with the Coco-Cola Company’s “Sprite” beverage, the extra-vibrant colorway was a clear nod to a brand “the kid from Akron” endorsed for 18 years. (Recently, the current Laker signed with Pepsi to promote Mountain Dew’s new “Rise Energy” beverage line with some salsa moves.) It’s uncertain whether or not James will rock the LeBron 8 V/2 Low on-court throughout the on-going Playoffs, as he may debut another iteration of the LeBron 18, but if he does, fans will surely accept it as a treat.
Enjoy official images of the pair here below, and anticipate a Nike SNKRS release before summer ends.
Elsewhere under the Swoosh umbrella, the Air Max 90 has recently emerged in a handful of compelling styles.
