Nike LeBron 8 ‘Lakers’ Release December 30th

Marissa Villamor

With the NBA Season back in play this year, the excitement around the reigning NBA Champions continues. After taking home the 2020 NBA Finals Title, the Los Angeles Lakers have already delivered that same excitement into the new season. Paying homage to the LA Lakers, Nike and LeBron have delivered a new rendition of the popular LeBron 8 silhouette highlighting the iconic purple and gold colorway. 

Since 2003, the year LeBron was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers, the 6-foot-nine superstar and footwear giant Nike has been producing a variety of basketball sneakers, apparel and more sought after by athletes and streetwear enthusiasts alike. After making head waves in the industry with his announcement to join the Los Angeles Lakers, we now see signature LeBron sneakers in one of the most iconic basketball colorways. 

The Lebron 8 ‘Lakers’ edition showcases a “Court Purple” and “University Gold” colorway throughout its suede and synthetic upper. Other details include the collar, tongue and swoosh that are highlighted in the golden hue with Nike and LeBron branding throughout. The midsole also includes Nike Air technology, making it comfortable for on and off the court.
