The Air Max LeBron VII Low was the precursor of the 360 Air Max based LeBron James’ signature low-tops, which still go strong today. However, the first version of the LeBron 7 Low, the budget one, didn’t come with the 360 degree cushioning and seems like it was just a trial project with only 2 Air Max colorways released to public. It didn’t stop Nike designers from creating a couple of special ones including the presented “Miami Dolphins” and “Summit Lake Hornets” styles. The real story behind them is a way of telling a story of LeBron James moving to Miami back in 2010 through this “Where You Came From… and Where You’re Going To” pack. I guess the pack has a different meaning today and it’s more like “Where You Go To College… and Come Back Home”. After all LeBron James graduated and now it’s time for a new chapter… shoes-wise, too.

Infusing modern innovation with iconic Miami colors like teal and pink, the LEBRON 11 South Beach pays tribute to Miami’s acclaimed neighborhood. This popular colorway first debuted with his eighth signature shoe in 2010. The Nike LeBron XI “South Beach” will be available at nikestore.com and at select retail stores worldwide on June 21st. It’s nice to see Nike coming forward and claiming these the actual South Beach shoes. At least there’s no confusion about the nickname. Aside from the on-court problems, the LeBron 11 is about to break all records for the most colorways released. Seems like there’s no end to it.

With all the focus shifted towards the Elites, Lows, Ext’s and even the new Soldier 7’s, there’s still one more regular Nike LeBron 11 to come out in the upcoming weeks. Originally, the South Beach colorway was scheduled to be released in late June and we’ll keep you posted if that changes once we get closer. It might be a great fit for the championship parade given the Miami Heat completing the 3-peat. In any other case it’s just another take on the popular Teal and Pink theme. Take a closer look below with some detailed new photos.

Since the debut of the original South Beach shoe back in 2010, Nike often finds a way to rediscover Teal and Pink within LeBron James’ signature collection… one way or another. This season the are going to just do it on more time with a South Beach version of the LeBron 11 that is slated for June. Apart from the palm-tree texture on the Hyperposie it’s your standard South Beach sneaker. However, if you wanted to re-create the LeBron 8, NIKEiD LeBron XI, which is sold out at the moment, allows for a very close implementation compared to the original. Below there’s an exemplary LeBron 11 iD build designed by Awsome Blossom plus a couple of comparison pics with the OG model and even the Slides. Which one would you rather have… Nike’s GR or this iD?

Since the debut of the original South Beach shoe, Nike Basketball often revisits the idea of adding Teal and Pink onto LeBron James’ signature shoes. Whether it’s the Miami Vice look, or the Re-Entry colorway like for the LEBRON 10… it’s a different approach each year. Here’s a new version of the Nike LeBron XI dipped in classic South Beach colors. It’s still uncertain it they end up at retail, but it’s a strong possibility at the moment. Do you like this version or do you prefer taking your talents to Nike iD with so many color options available for the LEBRON 11?

Last year a very rare pair of the LEBRON 9 PS leaked to the Internet. Last month, it turned out there are two very similar “Statue of Liberty” colorways. Both of them sport the South Beach theme and feature MVP badges on the tongue and MVP insoles inside. Both of them have recently popped up on eBay and turns out that when you combine South Beach and MVP then sky’s the limit to setting new Nike LeBron PE prices. The Statue of Liberty version fetched $5,200 while the South Beach version topped that with a highest bid of $7,700. I guess times when you could own rare Nike LeBron PEs with a three-digit number in your PayPal account are long gone, no?
