Sneak Peek: Nike Air Force 1 iD 'Lebron VIII South Beach'

My second Nike Air Force 1 iD has arrived. My first pair was inspired by the Air Max 1 Parra x Patta. This pair took me a long time to create as I wanted to best recreate the Lebron VIII South Beach. They were difficult to replicate because the color options for the Nike iD were not perfect. Despite the creative challanges, I am very happy with the outcome and plan on putting pink laces in them very soon!

The Lebron VIII 'South Beach' is the most sought after colorway of the VIII and still draws a huge demand. I took this opportunity replicate it as best as I could.

I started with an all suede light blue upper, which is the closest option that was available to the Filament Green on the South Beaches. I followed this up with a suede black swoosh. Looking back at my design, I wish I had chosen a black leather swoosh, which would have set off the shoe a little more. But I was intrigued with the thought of having an all suede upper.  The midsole I kept as white, and finished the it off with a clear sole, which is a nice detail on the Lebron VIII. Overall, my design is actually quite basic, only using three colors. The colors are obviously not perfect, but I am very satisifed with the overall outcome of my second Nike iD.
