Sneaker enthusiasts came together to buy, sell, or trade shoes with other sneaker buyers in the area. Some of these models came with $3,000 price tags.

"You know they created the Lebron court in a celebration; 1500 pairs made worldwide very limited and it's a celebration of Lebron winning his first championship, here in Miami so to me it has a significant meaning," said Anothony Gotti of Boca Raton.

Gotti had purchased shoes that cost $1,000 Saturday afternoon.

Organizers plan to make todays event an annual one and say their next show will be next month in Orlando.
