Model: LeBron 8 QS “South Beach”
Key Features: The leather and Flywire-infused TPU upper is completed in Filament Green, with contrasting black on the eyestay, tongue, Swoosh, and midsole. Pink Flash on the tongue, branding, eyelets, and laces brings vibrant contrast, while the full-length Max Air comprises a partially translucent rubber outsole.
Release Date: Spring 2021
Editor’s Notes: LeBron may have left South Beach, but his legendary signature shoe is rumored to be returning. Originally released in 2010 ahead of the 2010-2011 NBA season — LeBron James’ first in Miami — the LeBron 8 “Pre-Heat” features a South Beach-inspired palette.
His eighth sneaker with Nike helped launch his era with the Miami basketball team, and now it’s making a comeback. Of course, there may be some subtle changes in construction to the original, but it’s safe to say the re-release will retain most of the silhouette’s beloved features — including its vibrant, Miami-inspired colors.
Until next spring, check the seven times LeBron’s sneakers were also the MVP.
