Is Jason Petrie beginning a slow and steady purge of the famed Nike HQ sample closet? Recently, he gave us a look at a sample colorway of the Nike Air Max LeBron VII designed after LeBron’s Fortune magazine cover, but here we have a look that we might be able to relate to a bit more since a shoe similar to this did in fact release; that’s right folks – it’s a mid-cut LeBron 8 V/2 Flamingo/Miami Nights sample. The original shoe, of course, was a low-cut version (that made the Sneaker News Top 30 of 2011), but at some point, a mid-cut version was either proposed or experimented with. So, a few questions rise: Are these better than the low, and can we expect Petrie to unveil a ‘South Beach’LeBron 8 V/2 Low? Check out the gallery of images of this sick sample below and let us know what you think.

Maybe someday when they start retroing Lebrons they will drop some of these sample colorways. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

it would probably be really hard to make the air bubble look like the south beach one without making it look super cheap

The one released is better I think. The CWs are lighter and reflect more of Miami's local culture.
