LeBron James’ Miami Nights Shoes Draw Crowd at Niketown
Nike has released a new LeBron James sneaker entitled “Miami Nights,” not to be confused with the shoe manufacturer, British Knights. They’re not too dissimilar from the LeBron 8 South Beach shoe that dropped last October. The shoes, which look like a dead salmon wrapped inside an abalone shell, cost $160 and are limited edition; only 500 pairs were made. They were on sale exclusively at Niketown, South Miami where they sold out quickly. WSVN reports that people lined up Thursday and Friday to snag a pair of the shoes.
Several pairs of the kicks are available on eBay with prices ranging from $350-$800. For all the talk about LeBron being so disliked, apparently people will go to great lengths to grab his gear.
