Tonight, LeBron James will attempt to exorcise last year's Boston demons by guiding his Miami Heat to a series-clinching victory over the Celtics. A win in Game 5 would advance Miami to the Eastern Conference Finals, where they'd square off against the Chicago Bulls or Atlanta Hawks for a trip to the NBA Finals. If this postseason does indeed land LeBron his first championship ring, the LeBron 8 PS could go down as the single most important sneaker in his signature line. Here's a look at a sample colorway of the PS that didn't quite make it to the retail lineup.
Styled somewhat like the 'away' Black/Sport-Red colorway being released on Saturday, this sample features a black Hyperfuse-constructed upper with maize hits on the Swoosh, lion's eyes and heel signature. Maize also works the Max Air unit in the heel, white a white rubber midsole and outsole complete the look.
Take a look at more photos of the sample below and stop by Eastbay to pre-order the retail colorways of the LeBron 8 PS today.
