LeBron James currently has the most signature hoops sneakers with Nike and so to celebrate this honorable legacy, the Swoosh team has crafted him this special multi-colored LeBron 18 colorway. This colorway surfaces shortly after images of the iconic LeBron 8 “South Beach” retro popped up.

There’s various classic colorways of the four-time champion’s lineage to point out here. Pink and teal accents, the former touching landing on the tongues and paint splatters on the heels, while the latter spills onto the heel tabs, midsole molds and medial midsole Swooshes speak to classic South Beach-inspired flair. Forest green drenches the tongues and potentially calls out James’ legendary run at SVSM High School. From there, you’ll find bright blue knitted uppers that are somewhat reminiscent of the LeBron 15 “HWC” while notes of purple drop off on the front of the outsoles to call out his batch of Lakers-inspired makeups. Throughout the rest of the treading, various multi-colored paneling mixes between orange, blue, volt and red accents. A touch of gold also comes into play along the tiny Swooshes embedded into the toe boxes.

If you’d like to add these to your rotation, Nike China is dropping them on May 14 for $200 USD.
