Since we shared pics of the Kobe VI with you last week, it’s only fitting that we do the same for Mamba’s adversary on the other side of the League.

Pics of LeBron’s Miami-colored Air Max LeBron VIII are up at Foot Locker’s site.

The black/red/gold makeup goes on sale on Oct. 26, the same day that the Heat open their season in Boston against the Celtics. Also on a smaller amount of store shelves that day will be the LBJ VIII China Moon (white/red) colorway, which could serve as a home sneak for LBJ when the Heat have their home opener on the 29th against Orlando.

The concept of the VIII is a carryover from the LeBron VII, but there seems to be less Flywire in the shoe this time around. What kind of an impression does LeBron’s shoe make on you guys? Do you think his sneakers will be a tougher sell this year, since he’s turned so many fans this summer?
