While ‘The Decision’ – and the concomitant transfer of talents to South Beach – has left a sour taste in the mouths of many basketball fans in 2010, there is no doubt that the subsequently released Nike Air LeBron VIII of the same name ranks among the most popular designs that the King’s illustrious signature line has ever produced.
Eleven years later, the first LeBron signature shoe of James’ Miami chapter returns in what’s arguable the most sought-after colorway of them all: The bright teal of the ocean paired with black details and vibrant dashes of pink on the laces and around the ankle collar, all sitting atop the fluorescent glow-in-the-dark outsole. The South Beach colorway of the LeBron VIII sticks out like a sore thumb and has been an instant crowd favorite among sneaker collector and hoops aficionados alike.
