The LeBron 8 Playoff Pack: The Next Stage of the Evolution.
As one of the most talented basketball players, make that one of the most talented athletes, period, of Nike, LeBron James is unsurprisingly one of those athletes that the Oregon-based company is giving sizable treatment to. As his Miami Heat march towards the playoffs, leave it to Nike to produce something for him to specifically use in their run for the championship. Enter the Nike Air Max LeBron 8 Playoff Pack.
The Nike Air Max Lebron 8 PS is the third and final step to the evolution of the LeBron 8 shoe line. The shoe material is thoroughly modified while maintaining the original silhouette of the original. Replacing Nike’s Flywire technology is the same mesh-based material used in their best selling Hyperfuse shoes. Also, the cushioning for this shoe is significantly different. Instead of the Air Max 360 sole that is found on the V1 and V2 LeBron 8s, it is replaced with an Air Max 180 unit for the heel. Across the forefoot, Zoom Air is employed for cushioning up to the toes. Also, for additional support for the arch of your foot, a carbon fiber shank plate was integrated. Astoundingly enough, these modifications allow the Lebron 8 Playoff pack to weigh a full 2.5 ounces lighter than the Lebron 8 Version 1.
Nike released the Air Max Lebron 8 PS just last April 16, just in time for the Miami Heat’s first game for the 2011 NBA Playoffs against the Philadelphia 76ers. And coinciding with this release is the Playoff Pack, the first colorways that would hit the retail stores. The first colorway of the playoff pack that was released is the white one. It features a predominantly white base. The inner part of the shoe is red, which comes out through the pores of the Hyperfuse to create a great white/red effect. Black highlights, most predominantly seen on the swoosh logo, are placed strategically to create proper contrast. The second colorway of the Playoff Pack feature a black base, with red and white generously spread out along details such as the laces, the swoosh, and the heel. The black colorway is just as good as the white one. Most of the people that saw the LeBron 8 Playoff Pack liked it, in fact, based on feedback, it just might be one of the most popular shoes in the LeBron line this year.
