Now, almost 11 years later, the “South Beach” is back in all its sun-drenched glory. Uppers are centered around a cool “Filament Green” tone, split between leather and synthetic panels while also boasting then-revolutionary Flywire for support. Dotted details appear on the medial side, and a tonal debossed Swoosh appears on the medial side of the toebox.
Black Swooshes wrap around the black heel, and more black appears on the throat and tongue — the latter of which boasts a large lion graphic. This lion’s eyes are given a pop of color with a flamingo-style pink tone dubbed “Pink Flash,” working with the laces, a special eyestay and the tongue trim to provide the shoe’s second signature tone. Down below, cool teal Air Max units combine with icy teal outsoles and a final dash of pink detailing to round off the look.
The Nike LeBron 8 “South Beach” is set to release sometime in May, and will be priced at $200 USD. It’ll be the latest in an ever-expanding line of classic LeBron 8s to hit the market, after the LeBron 8 “HWC” recently dropped and the LeBron 8 V2 Low “Miami Nights” was announced for a return.
