Up-Close Look: Nike LeBron 8 ‘South Beach’

One of the jewels in the crown of King James’ vast sneaker legacy, the Nike LeBron 8 ‘South Beach’ is undoubtedly one of his most legendary.

Arriving in 2010, the LeBron 8 ‘South Beach’ (originally dubbed ‘Pre-Heat’) marked LeBron’s much-publicised move to Miami from Cleveland. Manufactured with a mix of ‘Filament Green’ leather and carbon fibre, this LeBron 8 is given aesthetic depth with some ‘Pink Flash’ across the laces and inner lining. Additionally, the sneaker is of course emblazoned with LeBron’s signature lion head on the tongue, symbolising LeBron’s long and indomitable status as the king of the court.

Still fetching huge resale prices online, the LeBron 8 ‘South Beach’ is still considered one of the Grails of 2010s performance basketball sneakers.

Look for the Nike LeBron 8 ‘South Beach’ to release on July 10. The price tag is locked at $200.
