Well this is kind of awkward. Despite leaving Miami in the dust this past offseason, it looks like there will be a "South Beach" colorway of the Nike LeBron 12.

Yes, the "South Beach" colorways of LeBron's signature sneakers have been highly successful, so we see why the Swoosh would want to make another one. However, judging by the general consensus in Heat land right now, a Miami-inspired LeBron shoe just seems a bit odd. Here's to hoping that LeBron laces them up for the Cavs Christmas Day matchup against the Heat in Miami.

Check out early images of the Nike LeBron 12 "South Beach " below and keep it with Sneaker Report as more details emerge regarding the shoe, including a release date.
