Almost a decade ago, the Nike LeBron line underwent a rapid change when the young king abandoned his hometown of Ohio for the warmer pastures of South Beach. Suddenly, teal and pink took root in the fabric of LeBron shoes, bursting onto the scene with the infamous LeBron 8 release “South Beach” which launched just before its official Miami debut. As part of the big introduction to Heat fans, LeBron, joined by Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, promised multiple NBA championships from the start.
This LeBron 8 V2 nicknamed “Miami Nights” was seen as a nod to LeBron’s debut NBA Championship in his first season with his new team. Building once again on the teal and pink of South Beach, Nike added a confetti-like pattern to mimic the festive party scene during the championship parades. Of course, things didn’t go as planned as the Florida super-team fell to the hottest Dallas Mavericks led by Dirk Nowitzki. This unexpected loss is probably what forced Nike to postpone the release of the LeBron 8 Low V2 âMiami Nightsâ; it was probably expected to drop right after the final, but we didn’t see a release until September of that year.
Currently, the LeBron 8 Low V2 âMiami Nightsâ is listed on some release schedules for May 11, 2021, but given the fragile nature of release dates this year, it may still be subject to change. For now, mark your calendars for 11/5/21 and stay tuned for updates.
Updated on May 23, 2021: A release date is set for June 4, 2021.
