We have only been looking at the Lebron 8 V2 for about two months now, and Nike is already letting us see what will be for two months from now. In less than a year, Lebron's eighth shoe already has three different versions in a multitude of color-ways, but still nothing compared to Kobe's kicks. The samples below are a black color-way with del-sol being used in the swoosh and the air unit and a white out-sole, and the other is a "royal" edition. This color-way is not as "Hot" as the white and red that we showed you a few days ago. I think in order to make this one better Nike will have to continue the yellow of the air unit, throughout the out-sole, like the red on the other edition. The "royal" version however I feel is second best because of the continuation of the color from the air unit to the out-sole.
This Fuse enhanced Lebron 8 is even lighter than the V2 using a mesh upper, compared to the leather in the V1. This shows us the transformation that Lebron goes through during the season and how just like he improves and gets better and plays harder, so does his gear, giving him the upper hand over other players. This Post Season edition also has a carbon fiber shelf inserted above the out-sole, which can be seen
There is no word yet on when these will be coming out but I suspect potentially around the end of March and starting in April.
Let us know what you think.
