The China Exclusive of the Nike Air Max LeBron VIII will hit retail in October. The new Chinas are slated for the 10/1 release in Asia and 10/26 in the States. It appears there are two different version of the shoe. The Asian look sports a Chinese stone Lion on the tongue while the U.S. possesses LeBron’s classic signature Lionhead logo. New images presenting the Asian variation have hit the Internet including what appears to be the production packaging for the Nike LeBron VIII. The new box is a classic black drawer box with the image of LeBron James and a lion emerging from behind. The lion reference, also reflected in LeBron’s nickname (King James), seems to be the #1 theme now as the Lionhead logo is most likely to replace the L23 on his Nike products.
