After a couple of weeks of voting, the results are in for the Sneaker News March Madness Nike LeBron Tournament. LeBron’s signature line taking its place in our annual tourney is a sign of his progression and how his signature line has ascended to the premier spot in basketball performance. This year’s bracket followed the original ultimate grail competition, two years focusing on different Air Jordan eras and last year’s Foamposite lineup. The fact that any man other than Michael could fill four regions by himself is further evidence of the King’s status.

In a result that many would have predicted (it was a #1 seed, after all), you selected the ‘South Beach’ Nike LeBron 8 as the winner. This pair has such a mystique that even those who are just now getting into sneakers respect its place in the game as one of the most coveted and important releases. Let’s take the occasion of this victory as an opportunity to go back and examine the historical context that makes this particular colorway so fascinating, and when your reach the end, let us know what you think about the South Beach being crowned King of LeBrons.

This dude is the fakest motherfucker ever. From Ohio, would never wear an Indians hat. Rocks a Yankee hat to a fucking Indians game and gets booed by the crowd. Moves to Florida like a 68 year old retiree, and probably bought a Marlins hat as soon as he got there. #FAKEASFUCK

Sounds like bitter bloggers that weren't able to get a hold of them. Fortunetly I was able to aquire two pairs. As much as you all hate to admit these are the best and most sought after lebrons period. Go heat!

The answer to that headline question depends on when you wrote the article. Before or after your Lebron tournament bracket result?
