3 years ago Nike released a colorway so powerful and popular; that even they didn’t know would impact the sneaker community so severely. No, it’s not the “Yeezy” colorway but that wouldn’t be a wrong guess. Rivaling the “Yeezy” colors,the colorway known as the “South Beach” has taken its talents to all sneaker fiends’ closets around the world.
In celebration of LeBron James going from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Miami Heat, Nike took a vibrant teal and contrasted it with a flashy pink. This color was first debuted on the Nike LeBron 8 and it was almost instantly one of the most hyped up colorways the world has ever seen. We’ve seen the color plastered on the following models after the 8 and it continues onto the LeBron 11.
This 11 model in its teal glory, is on most of the upper body including the Flywire panels. The silhouette is outlined in black to contrast the bright teal. Of course, how can this be a “South Beach” colorway without the pink accents? Pink accents are moderately sprinkled on the eyelets, the tongue, and the lace lock of the shoe. Now this might be the inner hypebeast channeling inside of me, but one can only hope that the bottom sole and the Nike swoosh will glow in the dark. Nike did it to the LeBron 11 NOLA All Star “Gator Kings” and it was fantastic. Having that touch on the shoe will just make the sneaker community be up in a frenzy.
No release information just yet but this is one of the releases that you will definitely want to stay tuned in with us for more information!
