Nike takes its talents back to South Beach.
The most hyped colorway over the last year in athletic footwear? The “South Beach,” first demonstrated by the Mint Candy/Pink Flash colorblocked Nike LeBron 8 which retailed for $160 and now tracks close to $1000 a pop on eBay and secondary markets.
LeBron’s “South Beach” version this year uses the post season edition Nike LeBron 9 Elite as a canvas but the eye popping style isn’t exactly the same, with a majority upper body of grey. Close enough. Club725.com just spilled all the photos on the previously unseen shoe. A shoe that we were told wasn’t going to happen! But suppose there’s some wiggle room here.
