On Tuesday, October 26th, 2010, opening night of the 2010- 2011 NBA Season, Nike will be releasing the 8th signature shoe of NBA star Lebron James. The Nike Air Max Lebron VIII is Lebron's first shoe since his controversial yet monumental decision to sign with the Miami Heat this offseason. On October 26th Nike will release 2 colorways of the shoe, Black/Sport Red/Gold and White/Sport Red “China.” The shoe features Flywire support in the upper as well as 360 Max Air cushioning, similar to that of the Air Max Lebron VII. The "China" colorway is scheduled to release in China on October 1st, more than 3 weeks prior to the U.S. release. No word yet on pricing but expect a tag close to that of the Lebron VII, somewhere around $160.
