With pastel colors galore, funky art deco buildings, and the crisp blue tone of the ocean water, the city of Miami certainly has a unique look. ‘Miami Vice‘ is more than just an old-school television show, it’s pop-culture vocabulary that defines something that not many other words can. That’s the basis of the LeBron 8 Pre-Heat, which features the classic combination of bright aqua blue, hot pink, and black made popular by the classic late-80’s TV program.
In this detailed viewing of the Pre-Heat, we get a better idea of the exact color-blocking of the shoe; with the upper taken up entirely by ‘Retro’ (how fitting of a color title), hot pink only manages to make its way onto minor parts of the trim but does so enough to share presence with the aqua blue color. With pink on the primary lace eyelets, LeBron’s signature on the heel, the embedded amulet on the bottom sole, the border of the tongue, and on the lion’s eyes, pink doesn’t play second fiddle at all. For added pop, the LeBron 8 Pre-Heat will come with a secondary set of hot pink laces. Take a detailed look at this upcoming release and let us know what you think, and stick with Sneaker News for all LeBron 8 release information.
