LeBron James cites Michael Jordan as one of his influential idols, symbolized by his ’23’ jersey in High School and during his Cleveland Cavaliers days and his penchant for Air Jordan sneakers. As part of a tribute to his heroes, which also included 90’s generation sports icons Anfernee Hardaway and Deion Sanders, Nike created a special set of the Nike Air Max LeBron VII, unreleased the public (shocking, isn’t it), inspired by famous signature sneakers of each of the acclaimed heroes. This particular pair takes after the Air Jordan XI ‘Bred’, as seen by the black patent leather upper, black leather and weaved Flywire, the red outsole, and the special ‘JORDAN HEROES‘ label on the tongue, similar to that seen on the Air Jordan XI. A stray pair made its way up for grabs, so check out these new detailed images of the Air Max LeBron VII ‘Heroes Pack’ inclusion and hit up the auction from hyperstrike_718 on eBay.
