What makes the Nike LeBron such a ‘collectable’ shoe is that alongside all the sick releases, there are as many, if not more, samples and PE colorways that are hiding in the closets of Nike HQ. On such sample is this Black, Blue, and Yellow colorway of the Nike Air Max LeBron VII, modeled after one of LeBron’s favorite magazine covers; in 2008, LeBron was on the cover of Fortune 25 magazine – a cover that served as the inspiration of this sample. These won’t ever release, but Jason Petrie, the designer of the Nike LeBron series from VII -present, just gave us a nice little glimpse at what other sick joints we might never even see. Check out the extra image below as well as a picture of the cover in question and let us know what you think.
They look way better then Lbj 9 shoe that's out now. ALl them joints look a hot mess I hope they good to hoop in cuz they ugly as hell.
True, but thats only because it's obviously inspired by the Jordan XI. Kind of regret buying a pair of VII few years ago.
people always have something to b***h about. just enjoy the sneaker. btw how the hell is it inspired by the XIs???
