LeBron 8 to be at retail Oct. 26

The Nike Air Max LEBRON 8 – Miami Heat forward LeBron James’ newest signature shoe is scheduled to be in stores Oct. 26.

It’s built on a basketball specific Max Air 360 unit, but “is classically crafted and modeled after the shell of a dress shoe,” so says a release describing the shoe.

The black, white and red shoe features a multi-directional herringbone pattern and the lion’s face on the tongue “represents LeBron’s ravenous nature – like that of a hunter on the basketball court. And the numbers 828 are for the 82 regular season NBA games and 28 playoff games.

The shoes cost $160.

The shoe’s design is expected to be adjusted during the season, according to LEBRON 8 designer Jason Petrie. Watch a video of Petrie describing the shoe below. Not sure I’ve ever heard a shoe described so lusciously:
