Homepage > Avoid Fakes > Fake LeBron 8

Information

The main rule when it comes to identifying fake LeBron 8’s is the new naming system and the box. First of all they’re called Nike LeBron 8, not Zoom LeBron VIII nor Air Max LeBron VIII. The numbers are no longer roman, but arabic instead. So be sure to check out those boxes, which by the way should look like the one posted here. The original box features an image of LeBron James and a lion emerging from behind. Additionally, most of fake Nike LeBron 8’s are simply made up colorways. That’s why, be sure to check out all photos below for a list of many not existing versions. Compare them with our official LBJ8 Listing and the Gallery and you’ll have your answer. Of course the inline style – Black/White/Red – is the hardest to spot. A fake version is listed below and the poor quality of Carbon Fiber panels plus incorrect number of ventilation holes on the medial side give away counterfeits. Other hints also apply here. Finally, please pay attention to details… for example lace jewels, the new signature on the back of the shoe, the insole label (WITNESS insignia), new Nike tags etc. Fakes makers tend to mix them up.

GR vs. Fake South Beach 8’s!

    They had them originally like that, but as you see under Air Max LeBron 8, they use the symbol 8 instead of VII. ;-)

    There is too many fakes of Lebron’s Eight… Some of them looks like a real shoes :(

    If this is fake priced below USD50, Id rather buy this one than the original of USD150? You cant tell the difference let alone the economic status of us.

  18. Adamman on 29 Jun 2011 at 6:09 pm | permalink |

    Yes men, these shoes are fakes. I wanted to buy one pair (blue-black), but I finally bought an original black-red lebron 8 :)

    this is so wrong….the entourage, the all star, the christmas i know for a fact are all real…but so many of these other ones are real….they may not have been first release VIII’s, but they are VIII version 2’s….come on man

    I’d rather buy the real Lebrons and be happy with them than to buy fakes and point out the flaws
