When Lebron James decided to join the Miami Heat in 2010, little did it know the ruckus that was going to follow after. He became the number one villain in the league and the Heat were despised by NBA fans all across the globe. The sneaker community was also treated to one of the most memorable shoe in the Lebron line, the Lebron 8 South Beach aka preheat. Nike is still riding the wave of the south beach with the upcoming Nike Lebron 9 South Coast.
This vibrant new makeup pays homage to LeBron’s stint with the Heat, with bold neon colors and palm tree graphics. The special insoles feature custom King James graphics, adding a touch of luxury every time you step on court. For purchase purposes, refer to the details below

I’m sure folks want to know how limited the shoe is so that’s going to be our next task, estimating the possible number of pairs produced.
Based on the data above, the stock numbers are going to be relatively high, but a high stock in a size 7 of a pair of Lebron 9 may mean 300 pairs. As a result, we’ll base our distribution on historical data. We also need to consider that, with the exception of a select colorways like the Watch The Throne 9, the LeBron 8 and 9 retros aren’t performing so well right now, and this will influence our assumptions.
Size 7 ( 120), size 7.5 (160), size 8 ( 360), size 8.5 (380), size 9 (600), size 9.5 (720), size 10 (800), size 10.5 (800), size 11 (920), size 11.5 (480), size 12 ( 720), size 12.5 (120), size 13 (600), size 14 (160), size 15 (48), size 16 (48)
Total= 7036 pairs and I believe the total number of pairs made will fall within the 6500 pairs to 10,000 pairs interval
There have only been two transactions so far, which is a small sample size, and the current average sale price is at $247.5. That’s not a good sign, because the sneaker will be released in around 6 days and the price will drop by 10% to 12%. So, in most sizes, you may expect a resale value of around $225 to $235. You’ll lose -$13.25 or -$4.15 if you buy at those prices. As a result, I do not suggest this shoe. Even the more sought colorway of the LeBron 9 Watch The Throne is only averaging a resale price of $250+. So, if you’re going to acquire the Nike Lebron 9 South Coast, make sure it’s only because you intend to wear it.
