LeBron 8 South Beach Retro – first look

Things are not going badly for LeBron lovers at the moment. Because: the Miami Night Retro will be released shortly and we also have the first pictures of the LeBron 8 South Beach for you at the start! A huge thing for basketball freaks. Who doesn't ring the bell now: The South Beach is probably the most popular LeBron shoe to date and is definitely one of the most sought-after basketball shoes in the 21st century.

South Beach is so popular because it was released to coincide with LeBron's polarizing move from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Miami Heat. A day before he was still the hero of the city. A day later the city enemy number 1 of all Cleveland fans. Quick recap: LeBron made the switch in the 2010 off-season. That just messed up the release plans of the collaboration back then. But Nike wouldn't be Nike if they couldn't react quickly. So they quickly put the South Beach on the shelves just before the start of the 10/11 NBA season. The bold colourway definitely reflects the exciting move and shows loyalty to LeBron despite all the criticism.

Back to the shoe: the South Beach Retro shines in bright turquoise and is made of smooth leather. The details, Swoosh, tongue, heel are jet black. The shoe is rounded off with bright pink laces and the evil eyes of the lion emblazoned on the tongue – in black lacquer. The plastic elements in the same turquoise give the shoe the very last touch.


The LeBron 8 South Beach is probably one of the most iconic Nike basketball shoes in history. Definitely one of the most coveted of 2010. Above all, it marks one of the most significant moments of LeBron's career. An absolute must for every LeBron fan, we think. The shoe is said to be released in May, of course we will keep you posted! With a bit of luck and 180 euros, the thing might soon be on your shelf.
