The ‘TWENTY’ on each right shoe of a pair of Nike Air Max LeBron VIIs (&) took on a different meaning last night during King James’ only appearance in MSG this year. In honor of the New York Yankees’ twenty-seventh World Series title, LeBron wore a special edition of the AML7.
UPDATE: Lebron actually wore the Nike Air Max Lebron VII NFW “Red Carpet” colorway
Unlike last year’s cherry red ‘Big Apple’ joints, these are just the standard white/navy/gold pair with a little something extra. Metallic gold printing leaves ‘NEW YORK’ and ’27’ inscribed in pinstriped half-baseballs on the left and right toes, respectively. No word yet on whether Nike Basektball will release these, and it could go either way given the minute differences between these and the November 25th general release. Stick with Sneaker News for the best coverage of any and all LeBron James shoes.
