CounterKicks has confirmed the continuation of the LeBron Post Season footwear line with the launch of the Nike LeBron 8 P.S. in Summer 2011. While no clear image is yet available of the model, we do have material and technical info for LeBron’s second post season branded shoe. The upper features Nike’s new Hyperfuse composite construction combining mesh, TPU and synthetic textiles. The midsole comes with a full-length Cushlon base with a large volume 180 degree Max Air unit at the heel. A solid rubber herringbone pattern outsole completes the package. We’ve been currently informed of four colorways that will become available to the public: Black/Del Sol-White, Black/Sport Red-White, White/Black-Sport Red and Varsity Royal/Black-White-Vibrant Blue. Releases second quarter of next year with first styles expected to hit in April 2011.
The LeBron Post Season line launched last year as a lighter weight companion to LeBron James’ regular season signature shoe designed to compete for the “last 28 games of the season” implying the full number of potential NBA Playoff games on the path to win a championship. The Black/Del Sol-White colorway may be an early indication of a Miami Heat based model but no confirmations as of yet. More info to come as it develops.
