Using Google Translate for help, here’s what Chinese blogs have to say about the new King James shoe. With National Day holidays approaching, Nike will launch a special Nike Air Max LeBron VIII China as a gift to Chinese fans. This exclusive pair of The Eight was created by using pure white full grain leather and Chinese red as the body decoration, highlighting the elegant atmosphere of the aristocratic style. According to Chinese feng shui theory, white lions are able to resist the demons from the east to protect people’s homes. Therefore, the ancient Chinese people often wore shoes with a white lion pattern to show auspicious. Nike’s designers merged the Lions logo on the tongue as a symbol of the new season and a blessing for LeBron James. The lion statue is also located on the back of the shoe. In modern China, the stone lion is a common form of artistic expression, it was considered the patron saint of the lions with a strong force, the general will of its standing in the palace, temples and tombs door. This form of inheritance can be still seen reflected in Chinese culture. The LeBron 8 China uses the injection with the stone lions guarding the king of basketball – LeBron James – but also to wish James invincibility in the new season. This element is also referenced in the sole, putting the basketball on top of lion’s claws translates as a wish of full strength and domineering.
