As LeBron James steps into a role once claimed by the goat, Nike has more than enough reason to celebrate. And while their upcoming reveals have shed light on both Space Jam: A New Legacy and The Athlete, the brand isn’t quite done yet as we’re going to see a commemorative LeBron 8 very soon.
Compared to previously unveiled designs, this LeBron 8 is far simpler. The vivid hues are kept in the background, used sparingly on the gradient outline of the Swoosh, grommet, and decals below. Elsewhere, black nubuck and varnish make up the majority of the shoe, the latter being sublimated by futuristic figures, silhouettes of iconic Looney Tunes characters, and the title of the film itself.
For a more in-depth look – glow-in-the-dark soles and all – look below. While a release is currently to be determined, it’s likely we’ll hear more words closer to Space Jam’s July debut.
In other news, a surprising Air Jordan 2 Off-White is on the way.
