South Beach was the first area of Miami Beach to be developed back in the Nineteen-Teens, but it was nearly a century later that this Biscayne Bay hot spot became a sneaker colorway. People will be talking about that ‘South Beach’ LeBron 8 for another hundred years or more, a sneaker so popular it rivals the most elite Air Jordans in terms of copycat colorways (and, one day, retro potential?). The LeBron 9 already had a variety of MIA-themed colorups, but none carries the same pedigree nor pricetag as the ‘South Beach’ Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite. These official images depict the Wolf Grey-based, Mint Candy New Green and Pink Flash-accented LeBron 9 Elite in all its glory; do you have its June 2nd US release date circled on your calendar?

if you think this is hype wait for these damn Yeezy 2s at 250, check those reseller prices ,2000 and up!! lmmfao suckers
You know the type of "Sneakerhead" that will buy these... the last sneaker they bought was the Galaxy Foamposite... and their next purchase will be the Yeezy 2. That should tell you everything you need to know about these. People go "dont hate the hype, they are only hyped because they are a dope sneaker to begin with"... well for me, even if i like the shoe, the hype has killed it for me. I wont mess with it. I show a love for the game, i don't need to stunt to get props. Your game is sad if you feel you need things like these to play. Shame on you, and all your doing anyways is attracting the resellers, like a bear to the honey, and making it more costly and out of your reach. Your practically screwing yourself over.
Nike got that $250 pricetag for all the hypebeasts and all the so-called sneakerheads who copp to resell. Thank those people. PS: I wish the hype for these would die........these are nowhere near as clean as the preheat 8's
Why so slow over there? These coming out here in Australia MAY 10. And they'll probably sit on shelves. Oz don't do hype.
niggas is complainig to drop 250 but if retail was 250 n sum1 was resellin for 250 u prob wudnt hesitate if u like the sneakers so stfu n keep it moving and stop complaning
I have a question Are the Elites going to be released in limited numbers or will they be restocked so that everyone has a chance to get them?
Retail price - $250. Resellers price - $600+. We all know that the people who's gonna buy these are the resellers. You gonna see a nigga with 10 pairs of these on Ebay trying to sell 'em for $600+. Death to resellers...
most of yall got zero swag. yall crying about the price, 250 aint nuthing for these. If you are crying about 250 for these, u aint got no swag, or u aint got no money, and you have no reason to be here. so gtfo with ur weaksauce. step ur game up or get stepped on. try to cop urs at retail for 250, or after the instant sellout youll be paying $500 or so to get your pair. I recommend stop being trolls and try to cop at retail, do it as a favor to urself.
when dick riders pay 250 for these the shoe game is going to die by prices cause nike knows lie to people and they will buy anything that shit cost maybe 15 dollars to make smh
What makes me kinda mad is I've had to look at a million pics of these and the'll prob be imposible to get! One store in the area will get them and people will camp for a week. Why did I have to look at this shoe for six months. Should be a GR so we all could get them!!!!!
Pass ......... Shouldn't even carry tha south beach legacy nothin catches my eye its just a all around boring shoe thats gona sit on tha shelves of footlocker cause its outrageous price tag
I guarantee that some hypebeast is gonna try to sell these for more than the galaxy foams... We are all witnesses.... To the death of the sneaker game smh
these have grown on me a lot since they first popped up but that price is lookin uglier every secod..
How many more "official images" are there going to be? The shoe is decent but I'm not a Lebron fan so easy pass.
These shoes have all of the latest technology.... And no style to them whatsoever. Just like these new generation hypebeasts..these shoes can't get the job done on the outside even though they are equipped with all of the best tools on the insude. #lebron/teensgohandinhand
I'm relatively new to the sneaker game, but these are stunning. Given the technology and hotness, I 'd def spend $250 plus tax on these. To me they're more worth $250 than the uncomfortable hyperdunk or kobes are worth over $100. I'm gonna be out of the country when these come out. Can someone tell me given the hypeness I wouldn't have been able to get a pair even if I wasn't going away? I'm a sneakerhead but I'm not crazy. I won't drop $600 on them.
These shoes are great. However, I saw the Lebron Elite in Black first hand in a store (official nike store here in HK) and the quality was terrible. The materials are great, but the stitching and craftsmanship was awful considering the price tag. Great shoes, but nowhere close to $250.
We still have pairs available, we are a european basketballstore with pinnacle account! No fakes only authentics, mail me! firstname.lastname@example.org
Only way I'd wear them is with grey laces. However I'd rather have the 'Maize Bruce Lees'. Paying more than $250 for these is insane.
I'd rather see very few shoe updates than one thousand re-ups of the same damned shoe. this is what... the 6th time this week that the same elites have been talked about?
What is a 'swag'? I know Pirates back in the olden days used to look for a 'swag' of treasure... are you a pirate?
Seems like they have had 'Official pictures' of this shoe every day for the last fortnight. Do they get a part of the profits from these or something?
I might as well be, I've been gettin all this booty... I was lookin for a swag of lebron south beaches as well, and I found em.
i feel ya.why does everyone hate these shoes looking on this link.stay the fuck off southbeach reviews ,if you hate the shoe or the price,go look at some corny shit.too many haters cuz either they cant afford the shoe,or wont be able to cop it. bet they would if they could.and if not then dont read about shoes you dont like sucker.ima wear mine strong,lmmfao!!!!!!copped 3 weeks ago hyper eaaaaaaarrrrrllyyyyy. haha
