Will LeBron James finally wear his player exclusive all-black LeBron 8 PS during the Miami Heat’s upcoming road games in Dallas? King James is in a position to cut the switch on the 2010-11 NBA season with just three more wins, but whether it happens at AmericanAirlines Arena or AmericanAirlines Center (or at all) remains to be seen. What we do know for certain regarding LeBron and all-black signature sneakers is that the Nike LeBron 8 V/2 Low ‘Blackout’ has sneakerheads excited for their release later this summer. This ‘Triple Black’ getup is the darkest LeBron since a similar palette was produced on the leather and carbon fiber LeBron VIII, this pair getting an edge on weight and tonal depth thanks to the synthetic Flywire shell upper.

Nike LeBron 8 P.S. Dunkman

On May 3, 2011, in FASHION, SNEAKERS, Syndicated, by SITE ADMIN
VIA: SneakerNews Nike LeBron 8 P.S. Dunkman   Detailed Look LeBron James had yet another stellar season, helping Miami to a second seed in the Eastern Conference and a Game 1 victory in the opening round of the NBA Playoffs. However, it’s been somewhat of a ‘down’ year for LeBron in terms of slam dunks and Top-10 highlights, because he’s taken more of a leadership role and switched his focus to the team game rather than a one-vs.-the-world mentality. LeBron’s still managed to throw down some sick monster jams, but we’re still waiting for the ‘Dunkman‘ to be unleashed; perhaps the Playoffs will coerce the explosive ‘Dunkman’ persona to come out of its shell. We can always count on the ‘Dunkman’ edition to be a scene-stealer, and the LeBron 8 P.S. version is surely no slouch. These aren’t set for a release until mid-May, so take a look below for a nice detailed viewing via Kenlu and let us know where these rank among all the LeBron Dunkman releases of the past and get your pair early right now on eBay.

Nike LeBron 8 V2 – White – Black – Varsity Red

On November 29, 2010, in DWU, FASHION, SNEAKERS, STYLE, Syndicated, by SOURCE: SNEAKERNEWS.COM
Nike LeBron 8 V2 – White – Black – Varsity Red | Detailed Images LeBron James and the Miami Heat are certainly in dire need of a jolt of energy, coming off two straight losses – one coming off a buzzer-beater from Rudy Gay and the second a miserable Home loss to the Indiana Pacers. It could come in the form of the Nike LeBron 8 V2, a lighter package of the LeBron 8 featuring a featherweight shell with exposed Flywire with perforated mesh underneath it. Last season, the Nike LeBron VII P.S. offered the same lighter construction and modified fit to adjust to LeBron’s post-season play but unfortunately the results did not match the expectations. For this season, the second stage of his LeBron 8 signature will come a lot earlier – possibly by mid-season – as the wear and tear of the NBA season takes its toll on James’ physique. Take a look at this detailed gallery of the white, black, and varsity red colorway of the Nike LeBron 8 V2 and let us know if you think LeBron James will be the one hoisting an NBA Championship trophy over his head this June. via Rstor.

Nike LeBron 8 V2 ‘Neon’ – New Teaser Pics

On November 28, 2010, in FASHION, SNEAKERS, STYLE, Syndicated, by SOURCE: SNEAKERNEWS.COM
 VIA: SneakerNews Last week, DJ Clark Kent brought us our first look at a fresh new colorway of the Nike LeBron 8 that may or may not turn out to be this year’s Dunkman offering. We’ll have to wait for a full look at the shoe to find out if the Dunkman logo can be found, but either way, this new version of the LeBron 8 is sure to stir up some excitement. Now, we get another sneak peek at the upcoming colorway that may throw a wrench in the works for some of its initial admirers if it does turn out to be an altered retail version of the same shoe. As you can see from these pics, the outsole and Air bag appear to be white instead of the solid neon that really seemed to make the shoe pop when we first saw it. There also seem to be different materials on the upper and black laces, so perhaps this could be a look at a potential V2 version. This follow up look at the juicy new colorway comes courtesy of MarqueeSole’s SN Blog, and you know that means that they should be showing up at their online store soon, so hopefully, we’ll finally be able to answer some of the questions looming around this intriguing new release. Check out the new teasers and stay tuned for detailed pics coming soon. UPDATE: It was just pointed out by one of our readers that these do actually look to most likely be the black/grey version of the LeBron 8 V2 previewed earlier this month. Good eye Beavertron17.

Nike LeBron 8 ‘Blackout’ – Available in Europe

On November 11, 2010, in DWU, FASHION, SNEAKERS, STYLE, Syndicated, by SOURCE: SNEAKERNEWS.COM
Nike LeBron 8 ‘Blackout’ – Available in Europe Even Nike wasn’t sure where LeBron James would end up, so they mocked up a few colorways (Knicks, Mavericks) that ended up being scrapped once ‘The Decision’ was made. One colorway that would fit any city would the ‘Blackout‘ colorway, which features a black-on-black-on-black design pointing to no specific color. With the super-high tongue, carbon fiber panels, and Max Air unit, the Blackout LeBron 8 could very well be a ‘Dark Knight’ version for its cold demeanor and no bull-crap attitude it exudes. These aren’t slated for a stateside release until December 11th but are currently available at European retailers, so butter yourself up with these new images after the jump and let us know if these are a must-have for you.

Nike LeBron 8 V2 ‘Christmas’ – Teaser Pics

On November 1, 2010, in DWU, FASHION, SNEAKERS, STYLE, Syndicated, by SOURCE: SNEAKERNEWS.COM
Nike LeBron 8 V2 Christmas   Teaser Pics LeBron James is shaking things up this fall.  His Heat shook up the league then shook off their collective jitters and are on a three game winning streak, but we expected quite a few more before the King shed some shoe weight.  Pictured above is a teaser shot at the Nike LeBron VIII V.2 in what any kid in the world could tell you is a Christmas colorway.  Looks like Santa has more cookie crumbles up his sleeve, and it’s Marquee Sole delivering the gifts with a look at more speckles on a predominantly red design, much like the Air Max LeBron VII Christmas sample from last year.  Kinda like getting the best of both worlds, and doubled by combining a ‘lost’ colorway with what looks to be an early release of what we expected to be the playoff LeBrons.  This is an interesting development to be sure, so be sure to stick with Sneaker News for the latest on LeBron 8 V2 release dates.
