Though no low-cut colorways of the LeBron 8 V/2 have officially been released, the new variation of the model has generated a lot of talk within the sneaker community. The biggest reason for that is the soon-to-be-released Treasure Blue/White-Volt colorway, which has been dubbed the 'Sprites.' Perhaps joining the 'Sprites' on the 'most anticipated V/2 Low list' is this upcoming Solar Red-based look, which falls in line with the Miami Heat color scheme.
The infrared-like hue is used for the synthetic layer used for the upper, as well as the tonal paneling running along the eyestay. Black works the Swoosh, figure-8 lace eyelets, heel signature and outsole, while white fills in the Swoosh border and midsole.
This colorway, which seems destined for fanfare, is due out this fall. Stick with Sole Collector for release updates.
