Along with the artist series version of the Air Max LeBron VII, we also now bring you a look at the Akron edition of the City Pack. More than with any other city on the More Than A Game World Tour, Akron holds some special significance for many reasons. Besides being LeBron’s home, Akron is also the setting for the film, More Than A Game, which follows the story of LeBron and his friends/teammates during their younger days at St. Vincent St. Mary High School. Like with the other installments of the City Pack, the Akron shoe will sport a hometown SVSM colorway with some personal touches that capture moments in time from LeBron’s life and basketball career.
The theme of the Akron version of the Air Max LeBron VII is “family,” so it’s only fitting that the photo used on these is a vintage shot of young Bron standing with his mother, Gloria, before he had even passed her in height. The image is featured on the tongue as well as inset on the inner half of the shoe, giving the Akron LeBron VII its most personal feel yet. As with the others, only 123 pairs of these kicks will be available when the More Than A Game tour visits Akron today.
