Miami Heat forward LeBron James is set to debut the newest version of Nike’s LeBron 8 on Christmas Day during the matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers. This one, called Lebron 8 V/2, is a very bright red called “Run On Red,” but still features James’ signature lion face on the tongue.
The $160 shoes launch at retail on Dec. 26. Additional colors are to be released Jan. 8.
Meanwhile, James’ shoe isn’t the only brightly-colored shoe to debut on Saturday as part of Nike’s stoplight set.
Across the court from James, we’ll see Lakers guard Kobe Bryant sporting the Nike Zoom Kobe VI dubbed “Green Means Go.” The bright green shoe features red laces. The shoes cost $130 and will be at retail on Dec. 26.
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant will sport the yellow shoes in the set. He’ll be showing off the KD III “No Yield for Yellow” in the Thunder’s game against the Denver Nuggets. This one includes five lightning bolts, piano keys representing Durant’s love of music, and “BF62” for Durant’s 62 points scored at Barry Farms in his native Washington, DC. Durant’s shoes cost $88.
