The transparent lemon lime soda Sprite was introduced in 1961, it was a drink produced by Coca Cola to compete with the similar flavor 7 up. The lemon infused soda is no stranger to endorsing NBA athletes, names like Grant Hill, Kobe Bryant and now LeBron James. Nike has decided to add a tad of that Sprite trademark to the LeBron James shoe line. The latest introduction is the Nike LeBron 8 V/2 Low Sprite edition. This special shoe bears the Sprite colorway Blue and Green, the fresh colorway is a nice addition to the very successful LeBron 8 line up.
