lebron florida colorways Statement Made: How Floridas Influence Elevated The Nike LeBron

The simple, team-based colorways will no longer suffice for a signature sneaker line. Sure any given player shoe is going to be equipped with the colors of the player’s team at the time, but the hungry market has demanded a load of releases that extend beyond the simple “Home” and “Away” make ups. The Nike LeBron line has always answered that call with creative pairs that speak to LeBron’s personal history, his trials, tribulations – even his favorite cereal at times. And ever since he took his talents to South Beach, the Florida-inspired colorways have been a key part of that equation.

What Do You Think?: Nike Basketball Revisits “Miami Nights”

miami nights nike lebrons What Do You Think?: Nike Basketball Revisits Miami Nights

This morning, Nike officially unveiled two upcoming colorways for the Nike LeBron XI, both of them sporting geographic nicknames derived from LeBron’s personal history. Included in the twosome was the Nike LeBron XI “Miami Nights” – a slick Black/Pink/Grey colorway that had been making its rounds on the web as the “Carbon Fiber” edition. If you’re at all familiar with LeBron James’ signature line, you’re well aware that the “Miami Nights” theme made its debut back in 2011 on the Nike LeBron 9, drawing on the highly-touted nightlife scene and the colors that represented the vibe. The Nike LeBron 11 “Miami Nights” encircles the same exact concept from two years ago – pink flash accents, backstory, and all. In the age of sneaker nicknames, Nike has been rock solid with creating new and fresh concepts, which makes this Miami Nights “recycling” of sorts something of a head-scratcher.

Nike LeBron 9 ‘Miami Nights’ – New Photos

Nike’s recent ‘Basketball Never Stops’ video shows that not only is roundball now a global game that cannot be stopped by the ongoing labor dispute here in the States, but that perhaps the Swoosh is more integral to the game itself than the league known for its Jerry West logo.  Only a brand like Nike Basketball can make the tagline true thanks to a range of releases that extends beyond the traditional NBA team colorways, looks that have become the most popular in the Nike LeBron series over the past few years.  So even if King James hasn’t been seen in a Miami Heat uniform since losing to Dallas in the 2011 Finals, there’s still going to be a ton of attention paid to his signature sneakers done up in MIA-inspired colorways.  The Nike LeBron 9 ‘Miami Nights’ is something less than a true sequel to the ‘South Beach’ 8s thanks to the presence of the vibrant ‘Cannon’ edition and its ties to Eglin Air Force Base, but their representation of South Florida’s electric nightlife is sure to be an equally swift seller.  Check them out in some new images after the jump and look for the ‘Miami Nights’ LeBron 9s in stores Friday.  via SM

nike lebron 9 nights ebay ea 01 Nike LeBron 9 Miami Nights   Available Early on eBay

Around the time of early-November, we typically expect tip-off of the opening games of the NBA Season. That’s far from a reality right now, with no deal set in places between the owners and the players. However, NBA stars have been participating in an un-official tour of exhibition games, with big names like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, and Chris Paul getting in some minutes. LeBron James has been using these games as a platform to introduce his LeBron 9, as he wore the ‘Cannon’ and the ‘Ohio State’ colorways during the most recent outings. When will he wear the ‘Miami Nights‘? Perhaps during the upcoming world tour? While we haven’t seen these on his feet just yet, you can grab them for good when they hit stores officially on November 4th 2011. Is your inner Bart Scott coming out and you just ‘can’t wait’? Grab a pair now from kicks2617 on eBay.

Nike LeBron 9 ‘Miami Nights’ – Arriving @ Retailers

nike lebron 9 miami nights mil shoes 04 Nike LeBron 9 Miami Nights   Arriving @ Retailers

Nike LeBron 9 designer Jason Petrie recently confirmed this Cool Grey/Cherry colorway of the LeBron 9 to be this year’s high-energy ‘Miami Nights’ installment. These are clearly a lot more subtle than the LeBron 8 V/2 Low ‘Miami Nights’, but convey the same message; Miami Nights are about parties. The Dark Grey/Black combo is a clear signature of night-time, which the Cherry and Purple point to the dazzling night-club colors (all you need is a bottle of your favorite spirits to get the night started). The ‘Miami Nights’ is currently set for a release on November 4th, but some LeBron accounts like Millenium Shoes has their stock in early, so check out these new shots of this upcoming release below and let us know if you like this subtler ‘Miami Nights’ over the previous version.
