It seems obvious now, but remember back when we showed you the first images of the Nike Air Max LeBron VIII’s first model? It seemed innocent enough that the showcase premier model was done up in black, red, and white. But didn’t it seem a bit strange following his subsequent announcement a few weeks later that he would join the Miami Heat? Anyway, this model is a study in gradations, as it’s blacks shift based on the numerous materials employed–from suede to leather to flywire to plastic. Marqueesole has this black model up for sale now in a very limited quantity, so head there now if you want to be among the few who have the King’s shoe before it officially drops.
