The Nike LeBron 8 “South Beach” from 2010 was an important release any way you slice it. The sneakers helped usher in a new era of interest for LeBron’s line and influenced color choices at sneaker companies for seasons to come. Nike Basketball themselves are actually reprising the theme in 2014 with the Nike LeBron 11 “South Beach” pictured here, which will release on June 21st, 2014. Continue reading to see the official images for the “South Beach” LeBron 11s in all their teal and pink glory and tell us in the comments how they compare to the originals.

Niggas stay hating on da shoe which is great I hope all yall hater pass on em jus make it easier for me to cop nd yess we all knw they nt better den the 8s but for someone dat doesnt own the 8s or even the 9s this is a chance to get da similar colorway
Definitely not as cool as past South Beach but I think that has a lot to do with the overall design of 11 as opposed to the color-way it self. The only complaint I have is the outsole doesn't quite go with the theme.
this year lebrons are one of the worst signatures he's ever had...south beach dnt even look the same..
There's details on this colorway that aren't usually on the 11s, like the effects on the foamposite and hyperfuse sections that you don't have on the others. I couldn't ever seeing myself wearing these, or buying them for that reason, but if someone would be wearing these I wouldn't talk down to them.
I like that "brushed graphic" on the Posite material. It looks nice. Not sure yet but these pictures give these some justice.
All of this makes me wonder why Nike hasn't been cashing in on the Grinch colorway? Especially with how similar the Kobe line is compared to the LeBron. I got both the OG Grinch and South Beaches off Eastbay.com OVER THE PHONE and barely trying...that's how much the sneaker game has changed.
Why all the hate? I actually kinda like these, not as much as the 8s but the design on the overlay is awesome, if its etched and not some sticker looking BS like the everglades if you look at them closely. Would have to check them out in person but I like.
@tevtev0515 Very well said...I missed the 8's and 9's and I damn sho' don't wanna pay the resell price on the 8's, so this is probably the closest Imma come to the SB's...I already pre-ordered my pair to make sure I won't end up w/ a sad face on RD
@Cpack more like 4 years ago when they 8s came out....
I was wondering the same thing y all the haters commenting I like the lebron 11even though I own none I bought my son 4 pairs this may be his 5th who cares its dubbed the South Beach these are spring & summer colors and its that time of year only broke people complain making up all kinds of excuses because they getting another shoe or can't afford them
@falku it's the colorway that's dope not the name you dipshit
