For a long while there it looked like LeBron James would lead his hometown team to the promised land. LeBron is of course a product of Ohio, hailing specifically from the greater-Cleveland area town of Akron. It was that city that raised him. It was there that he displayed such dominance at the high school level on his St. Vincent–St. Mary squad. And it was there that he remained when he opted out of the college route and ended up as an immediate franchise player for the Cleveland Cavaliers. And when it was all over, when The Decision had been made and he took his talents to South Beach, it was Akron (Not Cleveland) that LeBron James decided to thank via a full page newspaper ad.

And while he no longer resides there during the regular season, it’s quite clear that Akron still plays a special role in the LeBron James story. His SVSM alma mater still gets blessed with PE pairs on the regular, and he had a very specific callout to the city during that quick speech after his most recent NBA Championship clenching game. The latest sneaker to pay tribute to the so-called Rubber City is this, the Nike LeBron 11 “Akron vs. Miami”. The colorway draws the line from his roots in that working class town with some blue collar tones to his current home amidst the glitz and glam of South Beach via some burning bright pink accents.

15 pages. One pic per page! Utterly ridiculous and worse than ever, which is why I stopped visiting a long time ago. You started as a great site, then shrank pics per page down (forcing more clicks), then featured less posts per page, and now this. Sneakernews has become a click-fest. Smdh

Shoes are okay in person


its to bad this kind of colorway never made it on the "Xs"... i really try to like the XIs but it looks different when you put feet into the shoe.... why not just release this colorway on the X low...... i would be all over that...! why do these shoes need beauty shots for it to look Hot? hummmmmm??????


10yrs from now when they come with an even fancier slide out special box with plastic shoe trees and resell prices go up to 500-1000 you will change your mind lol...if you like the shoe buy it...If you don't like it don't force yourself into buying it. It will be a waste of money if you don't enjoy them because you like them.
