In a lot of ways, we're all about to "witness" version 2 of LeBron James the player. Gone is the "savior" who was hell bent on bringing the city of Cleveland their first NBA championship; enter a man willing to reduce his role in order to become part of a dynasty that will be mentioned with the great Celtics, Lakers and Bulls teams. Along with LeBron James 2.0 comes a second version of his eighth signature shoe, the Air Max LeBron 8 V2. Extra materials seen on the upper of the first version have been stripped in an attempt to shed weight - much like LeBron took some of the weight off his shoulders by joining Dwyane Wade this summer. Carbon Fiber panels and leather have been replaced by a thin synthetic overlay, revealing a heavily perforated base. Another new feature is the screen-like effect added to the tongue. The cut and 360-Air construction remain in tact.
No word on an official release yet, but Sole Collector will keep you posted.
