Original Story (05/17/21): The tenth anniversary celebration of the Nike LeBron 8 already promises the return of the “South Beach” colorway and the “Miami Nights” V/2 Low. Joining them is the return of the soft drink-inspired “Sprite” LeBron 8 V/2 Low.
The Nike LeBron 8 V/2 Low “Sprite” first released in June 2011, acting as a catalyst that spawned a few more Nike LeBron “Sprite” releases in the following years such as the 10 Low and 11 Low. It features a Treasure Blue TPU mesh upper with tonal Flywire cables as support. Volt accents are used for the Swoosh outline, upper eyelets, sock liner, and the Max Air unit underfoot.
