“When this guy right here made his choice, we knew we had to do something special.”

Jason Petrie’s ‘decision’ to create a South Beach edition Nike LeBron VIII was more or less made for him.  First LeBron James signed on with the Miami Heat to form one of the most potent, if controversial squads in the history of team sports; and actually, Miami has been famous for its art deco architecture since the early 1900s, so maybe that was the ‘first’.  Either way, the first of what we expect to be several Miami-inspired LeBron James Nikes is a stunner with a colorway that’s halfway between Miami Vice and the Florida (soon to be Miami) Marlins.  And with the NBA season right around the corner, Petrie and James were on hand at the brand new Dadeland Mall House of Hoops this Saturday for the Pre-Heat LeBron 8 release event, and you can see video wherein both sides of this Nike Basketball dream team discuss its design, along with what appears to be an exclusive South Beach Air Max LeBron VII Low on Petrie’s feet.  via Inside the Sneaker Box
