Nike LeBron 9 GS ‘Miami Vice’

In 2010, Nike Basketball capitalized on LeBron James’ decision to move from A (Cleveland) to B (Miami) and introduced the ‘South Beach’ LeBron 8, which today is considered to be one of the most coveted LeBrons of all-time and one of the most notable releases of the decade. The Miami feel-good vibes returned for the LeBron 9 in the form of the Elite, adopting a similar colorway to the ‘South Beach’ that had been officially dubbed the ‘Miami Vice’ by Nike LeBron designer Jason Petrie, and anyone who calls himself a LeBron fan surely has their calendars marked for June 2nd. Nike won’t leave the small-footed kick-fiends hanging, because a similar Miami Vice colorway of the Nike LeBron 9 will also hit stores; as you can see, these are not the Elite build, but carry a near-identical color-blocking to the $250 counterpart. A full shot of the shoe below, so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates regarding a release. Photos: UnchartedDrake on NT

If these were in men for $170 I still wouldn't cop these and wouldn't trip about it. If people shoot over these it'll just be hypebeasts killing each other and that's what the sneaker game needs lmao

seeing all the people who cry about the $250 price for the Elites... if these released in men's sizes for $170 people would be getting killed over these...

they not, SN just trying to be cool and switch up nicknames. they always try to jump first on dubbing a sneaker (ex. the Bubblicious, but then that turned into the Floridians). Now it looks like they might try to change South Beach to Miami Vice. Regardless, I'm calling them South Beach because that is what they are.

if you can fit into a size 7 and afford these without asking mommy to buy you a $250 and a $170 pair of shoes, you have problems...
