The LeBron James More Than A Game World Tour made its third and final stop of the Chinese leg of the tour today in Shanghai and by now, we’re sure you know what that means. Today, the City Pack and Artist Series versions of the Air Max LeBron VII were officially unveiled. The Shanghai City Pack edition of the shoe sports the same St. Vincent St. Mary color scheme as the rest, but of course, the inset photograph on the tongue and medial section of the upper has been changed. The Shanghai version displays a photo of an Akron road sign, giving a nice nod to LeBron’s hometown and the setting for most of the More Than A Game film.
We gave you a sneak peek at the Artist Series LeBron VII for Shanghai last week, but now you can get a better look at the custom design work provided by local Chinese graffiti artist, Sic. The shoe features a simple two color approach that includes elements of some of Shanghai’s landmarks and culture, as well as a few more personal references to LeBron and his home city of Akron. Keep reading for more info and some detailed images of both the Shanghai Artist Series and City Pack installments of the Air Max LeBron VII.
