Undoubtedly one of the most popular choices for custom creations in recent memory, the ‘South Beach’ palette has found its way on to a pretty big range of sneakers since the original LeBron 8 colorway had sneakerheads in a frenzy. We’ve seen a couple of Jordan silhouettes take the look, and it’s even been extended to other iterations in the LeBron line. And with lead designer Jason Petrie pretty much confirming that the high energy colorway wouldn’t be returning for LeBron’s latest, customizer Da Prince took it upon himself to prove Petrie wrong with these custom creations. The look stays true to the Miami inspiration, with the unmistakable tone of the uppers and the popping pink laces. Hit the jump for a detailed look at the Nike LeBron 9 ‘South Beach’ customs from paintorthread, and if you’re still looking for the originals, there are a few floating around on eBay.
