For fans of the LA Lakers, the perfect shoe has arrived. One of the finest basketball teams in the world now has a sneaker befitting of their brilliance and more specifically, befitting of the pure brilliant LeBron James.
The Nike LeBron 8 ‘Lakers’ are expected to launch in a matter of days, after months of excitement and hype around their release. The colouring on these sneakers is simply superb, with the mix of a suede and synthetic upper perfectly adorned by a stunning ‘Court Purple’ colour, famously worn by the Lakers themselves.
There is only one colour that can compliment and match that purple so well, the ‘University Gold’ of the Nike Range sets off a pair of these beautifully and truly brings this piece of art to life.
Instantly recognisable as Lakers colours, the two-tone LeBron 8’s are set to mark the launch of the model’s worldwide retro-cycle but unlike their predecessors, the tribute to the 2019-20 NBA Champions, these are far from mismatched.
Instead they provide the perfect blend of style and taste and come together better than the concoctions in Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory.
The suede upper is simply superb while the Max Air units under your foot give the support and comfort you deserve and of course, every pair of these comes with LeBron’s famous signature on the heel. There is some immense detailing on the large tongue while the famous swoosh on this model is gold on white, on the purple that envelops the sneaker.
Although an official release date is yet to be confirmed, strong rumours suggest these NBA based beauties will drop on December 15th and, given the pricing of the other models, will likely cost northwards of £100, although an official price is also yet to be released.
For those of you who are fans of the Lakers, the NBA or sneakers in general, these beauties may just have made a late entry onto your Christmas list.
