The Nike LeBron 9 received another jolt of energy thanks to the return of the ‘South Beach’ theme, scheduled for June. It appears that an ‘alternate’ version of that exciting colorway is upon as well; peep this first look at the Nike LeBron 9 Low in a similar ‘South Beach’ colorway, guaranteed to be a major hit just like its taller, Elite brethren. Like the Elite, the LeBron 9 Low version features a grey/silver upper with a Pink Flash interior and detailing, finished off white tropical blue tone (noticeably ‘bluer’ than the Mint Candy/New Green on the Elite). More angles for you to peer at below, so take a look and let us know what you think of this sample colorway. Photos via dino410

Has ANYBODY actually heard Nike refer to any shoe besides the SB 8's as a South Beach colorway. Feel like we are just assuming the nickname due to the colorway. I haven't heard Nike say South Beach anything, get off their nuts.
SN come on this is clearly a McFly pack they look just like the Hyperdunk n Hyper max mcFlys this aint no south beach
like the lows but not these...if they gonna have the south beach name they gotta be hotter than that
Its not Nike calling them south beach. Its dumb ass sneakernews thats giving these sneakers the nickname. These are definitely not considered to be a south beach colorway. Enough is enough sneaker news!!!
SWAG! South Beach cw is the best Nike. Now lets get a Lebron 9 Elite Low South Beach cw out. Put some carbon fiber on it, etc. price em at $200, get it done Nike! I'll triple up!
some of yall sound retarded. Just because it has the name "south beach" doesnt mean that the shoe has to be teal with pink laces. South Beach is just the Flamingo Pink and cotton candy blue/teal accent on the shoe in various ways. Anywho, the red lows is dope. these do like a girls GS shoes
Too much pink, the green is too blue They should have replaced the pink accents with mint green and vise versa Pass
its gettin to the point where nike is gonna throw shit together an put "South Beach" just so ppl buy it...that is no where close to "south beach"
So any Lebron with pink in it has to be labeled South Beach now? Ok (And don't reply with a smart comment about the Miami Knights, I know)
these are not south beaches stop confusing these...it must be loose "back to the future" material everywhere at nike
1. these are WACK as fuck 2. Neither one of these "south beach" CW are even worthy of bein called that 3. Nike....LET THAT COLORWAY GO!!!
stfu u freakin hypebeast...make more comments..u might jus get world record 4 most dislikes ever..stop sayin swag.......u sound like a fukin moron.....
you sound a little smarter than the rest, but no one cares about the red lows. and I wouldn't call these girls GS just yet, cuz if these drop in mens, people gonna start camping tomorrow morning just dreaming about drippin with this swag.
the miami nights bruh. sounds like you mad that you don't have the SB8, or the SBslide, or SBanything.
Nike making mad stacks because people love this colorway. It would be dumb for Nike to not use the South Beach colorway.
Jus because they have pink in them why is every shoe a South Beach..this is not doin nothing but hyping the shoe up for absolutley nothing..there are other shoes with this color and they are not SB
STFU and stop commenting on every comment saying "i got the SB8 & SB slides, you mad cuz you didnt get them" STFU already, your a lame and no one cares what you have! if you look at this colorway and look at past customs & the actual Lebron "South Beach" this doesnt compare at all ! Even the new "south beach" lebron 9 P.S. Elite doesnt look similar to this.
blame sneakernews for creating hype. These leaked yesterday and didnt have a "nickname" #STOPGIVINGSHOESHYPENICKNAMES
