Nike Air Max LeBron VIII – “China” – New Images + Release Info

It’s a good thing LeBron James and the people behind his Nike signature line have maintained a good relationship with the people of China. If the latest reports on his Q Score plummeting to embarrassing lows are indicative of his future popularity, LeBron’s fans in China may be the only people outside of South Beach still rooting for him. Jokes aside, the Nike LeBron line is once again saluting China, and the chosen platform is the Air Max LeBron VIII.

First seen earlier in the week, the “China” LeBron VIII features a tumbled white leather base, with sport red accenting the inner liner, tongue padding, Swoosh border and midsole. The translucent 360-Air unit sports a red speckle, and sits above a partially translucent outsole. Unlike the China in the previous set of photos, the debossed lion on the tongue does not feature the Chinese stone carving look. However, China is still acknowledged by special characters on the lace jewel.

This pair will be available at Foot Locker and on October 26th. Via Sole Collector
