So now that the Lebron 8 P.S. has finally released we want to discuss some of the things behind its design and where the shoe comes from. Jason Petrie, the lead designer for the Lebron line had a vision of a three-sneaker-in-one concept. Lebron sees the season in two parts, the regular game season and then playoffs. While at the same time he has a strong love for the lion. They combined these concepts considering Lebron is the King. The Lion works in three stages, the stalk, the attack and the kill and this was the inspiration behind the three shoe concept and also the fact that they get lighter from the V1-V2-P.S. The Final P.S. is 2.5 ounces lighter than the V1 with more support on the upper considering the hyperfuse is a technology that is consistant throughout without natural flaws that leather can have.
From leather to mesh to fuse and from new team, to family to champions? maybe, who knows. Now that the playoffs have begun, lets keep a close watch on these teams. Here at DRIPT though we wear pinstripes on the daily and now that its time for playoffs for the Knicks and the Rangers were wearing Orange and Blue tops with red white and blue bottoms. If were lucky the knicks will beat the celtics. fingers crossed.
