Since 2010's release of the super hyped Nike LeBron VIII "South Beach," the theme has been more or less absent, depending on how you want to look at it. The LeBron 9 was predominantly outfitted in grey and earned the "Miami Vice" nickname, while the X didn't even see a traditional release centered around the theme as it could easily be created on NIKEiD.

It looks like that will all change with LeBron's current signature sneaker because these recent photos reveal the XI outfitted in a true "South Beach" color scheme. The sneaker is predominantly teal with hits of black and pink accents throughout the upper—a combination that seems to make every sneakerhead go crazy. A release has not yet been set, but considering the reception the LeBron 8 received, we're sure this will be just as hyped when it releases.
