This Christmas, LeBron James and the Miami Heat will travel to Los Angeles, where they will battle the Lakers in what is widely assumed to be a NBA Finals preview. Like past seasons, LeBron will unveil a special shoe for the Christmas Day Game. This year, the chosen shoe is the Nike LeBron 8 V/2, a lighter variation of his most recently released signature shoe. Similar to the Air Max LeBron VII, this particular shoe will feature a heavy Christmas theme, with even more Christmassy look than before. You’ll be able to pick up your very own pair on December 26th, 2010. See LBJ’s previous Holiday shoes – click here.
The “Christmas” LeBron 8 sports a varsity red synthetic upper, Flywire-embedded mesh overlying a heavily perforated base. Offering lockdown support are tonal Flywire panels on the sides of the shoe. Black works the inner liner, as well of the border of the Swoosh, which is filled in with white. Green is used for the provided lace set, while a white snow flurry speckled pattern is applied to a black backdrop on the midsole and sections of the heel. Below, a black colored 360ą-Air unit sits above a white red rubber outsole.Show Album
