“Let me peep it . . . wow! Wow! Wow! Wow!”
Pictured clearly to the top left of SneakGeekz in his latest video review is the Nike LeBron 8 ‘South Beach’, a shoe so substantial it’s probably the only one that could lay claim to more impact on the last year than the ‘Cool Grey’ Air Jordan XI. And it turns out that they’re not the only Nike LeBron look this year featuring a colorway inspired by Miami’s infamous pastels, as SG pulls out a pair of the Nike LeBron 8 V/2 Low ‘Miami Nights’ for a 360-degree viewing. It’s truly a shame that King James couldn’t come through with his first chip because the historical impact of these could have been considerably more with that favorable timing, which is saying something given the model’s eye-poppingly radical design. They all at once hearken back to Nike’s early ’90s boom period and echo LeBron’s biggest colorway this season, but with a twist fresh enough to elicit the near speechless reaction quoted above. Click through to watch the video, let us know how the ‘Miami Nights’ LeBron 8 V2 Lows compare to the ‘South Beach’ Eights and stick with Sneaker News for the US release date.
