I hope they have Air Max in the heel, Zoom in the forefoot. Some flywire and a little bit of Foamposite for durabilty.

Flywire yes, but wasn't it said that they had a full AM sole just like 7s already?

....As I'm sure they wouldn't be at this point anyway...if anything I wouldnt expect Nike to be giving clues or fueling that speculation fire until confirmation has been made


And I'm liking the crest, very vintage, sophisticated feel to it...I'm surprised they decided to detract away from the number 6 though

No prob guys and the colors that are scheduled to release show no signs oflebron leaving the cavaliers. The VIII is a nice shoe. I was just not allowed totake pics of the sample I was shown. And I was told to keep it on the low......For now.

in your opinion,
which shoe looks better? VII or VIII?

b/c we all know performance will def be VIII > VII
