So we just gave you an official look at the Nike LeBron Ambassador 8 in the Chinese New Year colorway which flaunts a vibrant red upper with black and gold accents. So why not give you a double dose for today?

Up next we have another colorway that may garner lots of attention thanks to a color scheme that we’ve all grown to love. When you take a first look at this LeBron Ambassador 8 what nickname comes to mind? I personally think “Oreo” when I see the speckles on the midsole thanks to the Air Jordan 4 and Air Jordan 6 with the same features. This Ambassador 8 comes with black hyperfuse on the majority of the upper and a very noticeable heel cage that has also been hit with white speckling. The most noticeable attribute however is the extended ankle bootie that is sure to provide you with more support when using these on the court.

Are you feeling this Oreo colorway of the Nike LeBron Ambassador 8? Check out the official photos above and let us know your thoughts.

Author’s Take

Most of the time it’s a good idea to give a sneaker the “Oreo” treatment because many people love black sneakers and many people also like speckled midsoles. I actually think the LeBron Ambassador 8 doesn’t look too bad. I don’t know how I feel about that extended ankle though it looks kind of weird.
