Foot Locker’s House of Hoops has taken its talents to South Beach.*

Miami Dadeland’s House of Hoops opening on Saturday will be a King-sized event. LeBron James will be on hand, complete with the debut of a special edition of his LeBron 8 sneaker.

The LeBron 8 South Beach, complete in a Warholian pop art colorway, will be made available on Saturday. Before the shoes are available though, LBJ will speak with 100 local youths. Topics will include achieving success on the basketball court, preparing for the upcoming season, the inspiration behind his newest shoe and if Warholian is in fact a word (tip: I made the last part up).

The vitals for those of you in the area:
Saturday, Oct. 16 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at House of Hoops by Foot Locker, in Miami’s Dadeland Mall.

*That may well be the last time I make a South Beach joke. It’s getting a little bit played out, isn’t it?
