This past Thursday, Florida-based sneakerheads lined up in droves outside of Niketown Miami to collect wristbands for Friday's limited release of the highly-anticipated "Miami Nights" Nike LeBron 8 V/2 Low. With the buzz surrounding the release, some people were lined up as long as 24 hours. Currently limited to a select few U.S. retailers, many hoped the "Miami Nights" would carry similar long-term significance as the already-classic "South Beach" LeBron 8 Mid.
Where there's a big time sneaker release, there's always controversy. A handful of individuals were successful in obtaining a wristband, while the majority people waiting in line were left to make the trip home empty-handed. According to this report from CBS Miami, Niketown officials refused to comment on the amount of wristbands that were distributed or the amount of units they received.
