The Nike LeBron 8 “HWC” is set to return early next year for a return of the past for many nostalgic sneakerheads.

It’s crazy to think where LeBron has gone the past couple of years and the star he has become. Now on his 17th signature sneaker, the LeBron 8 released almost 10 years ago so a return of the silhouette brings back so many memories for a lot of sneaker fans. This “HWC” edition is inspired by the 1987 Cleveland Cavaliers jersey’s featuring the iconic blue and orange.

Arriving in Varsity Royal, Orange Blaze, Total Orange, and White, the upper is equipped with a mixture of mesh and suede and calls for a bright blue design. Orange laces along with an orange tongue feature LeBron’s Lion logo dresses the silhouette up in orange while a white Nike swoosh logo graces the side paneling outlined in orange as well. A white rubber midsole then begins to finish off the 1987 inspired makeover while an orange speckled Air unit and orange rubber outsole cap off the colorway.
