Kobe might be dominating most of of the headlines in the basketball kicks market with the Nike Zoom Kobe VI, but LeBron is currently at the forefront of the NBA’s MVP race in the eyes of many and to sweeten things for King James a little more, the Miami Heat are a mere 1/2 game back of the Boston Celtics for the top seed in the East. As you can imagine, walking in LeBron’s shoes is no easy task nor has it ever been and he has to surround himself with his most trusted companions as does Vinny Chase from HBO’s mega-hit series, Entourage, which also happens to be James‘ favorite show. Go figure.
Personally, I am a huge fan of the show as well and I’ve gotta say, these kicks are pretty clean and easy on the eyes. With a photo blue upper carrying the bulk of the colorway, yellow accents mark the hourglass eyelet, Swoosh border and outsole while black hits go to work on the laces, midsole and Swoosh itself. LeBron’s now trademark lion logo sits on the tongue with a light opacity and on the outsole surrounded by an interior photo blue finish. The Flywire threads are colored in Black and Yellow as well. Sorry, I just had to get that reference in there – it was too easy.
The Nike LeBron 8 V2 ‘Entourage’ will release on March 4, 2011 and if anything changes between now and then, we will keep you in the loop. Will these kicks make their way into your sneaker palace?
