The Nike LeBron 8 South Beach is back for the first time since its debut in 2010. And we all know which moment in basketball history we associate this with: The Decision. It wasn’t a good look for LeBron James at the time but these shoes definitely were a good look on foot. We’re just happy that these came back and we have another chance for those who weren’t able to cop 10 years ago. This shoe might just help you take your talents to wherever you wish. One of the best retros of the year.
