LeBron James has a new iteration in his range of Nike shoes — the LeBron 8. Due to drop next month, the shoes are in the Air Max format and will be released in a number of colourways and country-styles.

Previous versions — particularly the early models — of LeBron’s Nikes have been heavy and clunky and quite honestly did not appeal to me one bit. The design of these ones on the other hand I much prefer. Basically, they’re a lot more old-school looking.

Take a look at this teaser trailer which proclaims that “transformation is unstoppable”, showing the way LeBron sneakers have developed and evolved over the past seven years.
