Nike Air Max Lebron VIII (Black/Black)

Not long after the first Black/Red colour-up of the Lebron VIII got it’s release over here, this stealthy all black make-up appears.

When I first saw the Lebron VIII I wasn’t sold. It looked too chunky, too heavy and didn’t give me the same feeling as the VII did. After the silhouette grew on me and after finally getting a pair for myself, it’s a totally different story… These are light, not that chunky, the sock system wraps around your foot in an amazingly comfortable manner and the materials blend so well with the details to make a luxurious performance shoe. They even fit a little tight, I’d definitely recommend going half a size up.

All black make-ups are simple. It does what it says on the tin basically, so if you’re looking for a great modern hoop shoe or just an alternative to AJ’s then this is a solid option.

Available from now.
