Yesterday, Foot Locker hosted their grand opening event for their brand new House of Hoops location in Miami, Florida. The grand opening not only marked the 15th brick and mortar location for House of Hoops, it also marked the date for the first release of LeBron James’ new signature sneaker, the Nike LeBron 8 “South Beach”. With his kicks hitting the floor, Foot Locker invited The King to attend the opening for a question-and-answer segment. Aside from James, Jason Petrie, the designer who created LeBron’s new sneaker, was also on hand to answer questions about the shoe’s and explain it’s design elements.
We unfortunately couldn’t make it down to the event from NY but our friend Stickie213, a sneaker reviewer who you may know from YouTube, had the pleasure of attending and has provided us with a video recap of the LeBron’s and Petrie’s Q&A segment. Follow the jump to check out the videos. It’s in two parts.
