Nike LeBron VII ‘All Black Everything’ – Available on eBay

nike lebron 7 all black everything available on ebay 1 Nike LeBron VII All Black Everything   Available on eBay

It takes more than just good luck to stay relevant in rap for more than fifteen years, and Jay-Z has proven time and time again that he’s either the beating heart of hip-hop or right on the pulse no matter the game’s ebbs and flows.  A good example was when a 2009 teamup with Kanye and Rhianna sent ‘Run this Town’ to the top of the charts, along with a quote that captured the tonal and toned down post-recession fashion zeitgeist.  ‘All Black Everything’ became every sneaker blogger’s favorite way to describe the ever popular ‘Blackout’ and ‘Triple Black’ colorways common to nearly every significant release, but the Nike Air Max LeBron VII ’All Black Everything’ was a different beast entirely.  Another one of those Nike Basketball ‘secret menu’ creations, this pitch black AML7 first showed up right around the time Jay’s Air Force 1 collabo went to auction, its insoles celebrating Shawn Carter’s bar-setting career accomplishments in a variety of golden typefaces.  This is the kind of exclusive grail that you can build an entire collection around, so click through for the best images of this insanely rare suede and ostrich leather design and let us know what you think about the price asked by leoneski on eBay.

Just last night Sneaker News broke the news of a possible Nike Air Yeezy 3 in its beginning stages, as Kanye West mysteriously tweeted his desire to ‘sketch’ the Nike Air Yeezy 3. While this news is rather exciting, we still don’t know much about the Nike Air Yeezy 2, except that the tentative release date is currently set at March 23, 2012, and that the group of people who are known to have the Yeezy 2s in their possession is rather exclusive. You can add Kanye’s ‘big brother’ to that list, as Jay-Z was spotted sitting courtside at last night’s Nets/Hawks game wearing the Air Yeezy 2 in the Black/Pink colorway. The Yeezy 2 is apparently a hot courtside-Feet item for the Watch The Throne stars as Kanye West was also seen wearing the Yeezy 2 during the Christmas Day game between the Lakers and Heat. Check out Jay-Z and the Nike Air Yeezy 2 below and stick with Sneaker News for more Yeezy 2 info and updates.
