LeBron James and Nike are firing out a slew of footwear offerings this season, some of which are newer colorways of his current Nike LeBron 18 signature while others are bring-backs from the past. In relation to the latter, the Nike LeBron 8 V2 Low is now getting reincarnated in the form of its popular “Sprite” colorway.

These basketball-turned-lifestyle kicks originally dropped back in 2011, the very first year that “The King” was down in South Beach playing for the Miami Heat. As you can infer by its namesake, the shoes are directly inspired by Sprite’s signature colors as James and the soda company worked on numerous campaigns together in the past. Uppers are built with various materials including that of mesh, Flywire and leather, and arrive mostly covered with a “Treasure Blue” tone. Adjacent to this are bright white Swooshes that skew towards the lateral heels along with bright “Volt Green” accents that border the aforementioned logos and fall along the eyelets and interior lining. Midsoles are splashed with white and come stacked above a full-length Air unit that is tinted with more neon green filling.

Mark your calendars for a June 25 release and note that SNKRS and select retailers will be dropping them for $180 USD.

Previously, Nike revealed its four-pronged footwear pack that’s devoted to Ken Griffey Jr.
