Welcome the Nike LeBron 8

So not that everyone hasn’t already seen it, but how are you feeling about the LeBron 8? An Air Max 360 sole plus Flywire are the major highlights for this edition. The shoe drops in November and will retail for $160.

Given the batch of options around the $100 mark, I’ll be interested to see how many people splurge at retail for these things. Will LeBron’s decision to go to Miami hurt or help his shoe’s sales? There was always this talk about how being in Cleveland held him back as an endorser, so let’s put that to the test vs. the alleged damage to his Q rating this offseason and see how it impacts his shoe sales. The LeBron VII seemed to move well. Just from skimming retail sites, fewer pairs of those seem to be around than was the case with the VI or V at this time a few years ago. At the same price tag, in a more high profile environment, will these move in a similar fashion?
