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?Read the rest of this entry »
Following a detailed look at the upcoming “South Beach” Nike LeBron XI earlier this week, we have an official release date for you to mark on your calendars. The popular concept is executed with a turquoise and black upper, pink accents and mint hits on the lateral Swoosh and outsole. Expect the South Beach LeBron 11 to hit Nike retailers on Saturday, June 21 for $200. It could be a parade shoe if the Heat manage to three-peat.

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?Read the rest of this entry »
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?

Over the past two seasons, Nike Sportswear has stepped up the ante on their signature collections for their athletes by creating Lifestyle versions of their pairs. The NSW Lifestyle variants are different from the EXTs as the latter uses the same silhouette but with lifestyle materials, as opposed to the Lifestyle pairs that use an entirely different silhouette to evoke the player’s personality and style. Here we have another colorway for the LEBRON XI NSW Lifestyle. Initially dubbed “Miami Vice” for its color similarities to previous signatures, the shoe has other notable details such as the NSW lacelock, and LeBron’s NSW Lion logo on the tongue. The shoes have already dropped in Philippines and should come to other markets very soon.

LeBron James’ current sneaker rotation is very diverse. On the court he’s juggling between the LeBron 10, LeBron 11 and most recently the Soldier 7. Off the court he wears pretty much everything… Jordans, LeBron 11, very often the Balenciaga Arena or recently some retro material from his own signature line… LeBron 2′s and 3′s. However, there’s one shoe missing in his off-court selection… it’s his very own LeBron XI NSW Lifestyle. Here’s a new colorway that’s surfaced at one of Nike Sportswear retailers in Asia. The Miami Vice theme lives on!Read the rest of this entry »

In 2011, LeBron James took South Beach by storm and marked the dawn of a new era. Celebrate the moment with a brand new LeBron 11 iD design channeling the first South Beach shoe from Nike Basketball. Compared to the original, the “South Beach” XI’s feature a very similar color blocking with additional pink speckles on the Hyperposite. Nike choose the Black Ice translucent outsole, but the Glow in the Dark green option would also work well here. You can make yours at nike.com.Read the rest of this entry »
