Don Johnson was expertly cast as Kenny Powers’ father for the second and third seasons of HBO’s brilliant Eastbound & Down, and just like series lead Danny McBride, Johnson was once singularly associated with a TV character that defined a generation. James ‘Sonny’ Crockett will forever be remembered for how his rolled-sleeved blazers mirrored early ’80s new wave culture, and now this aesthetic returns as a showpiece for a guy who’s probably the most famous Miami resident. The ‘South Beach’ Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite gives us that pastel look Miami Vice made famous, but whereas last year’s monster hit Eights went for an overwhelming burst of color, these present their time capsule offering blended with grey. This highly anticipated LeBron 9 Elite embodies the culmination of a trend that has its roots in 2010’s ‘Cool Grey’ Jordan XI and that year’s aforementioned LeBron 8s; will you be there for the climax when these arrive at Nike Basketball retailers next Saturday, June 2nd? Check out some nice images from ITSB and look out for these at select retailers like Mr. R in Miami or get yourself a pair early now on eBay.
