Akron, Ohio was unheard of until Lebron James, and it’s believed by many that had Lebron not gone straight to the NBA from High School he either would’ve gone to the Ohio State University or the University of Akron, where a number of his high school teammates from St. Vincent St. Mary’s ended up playing their collegiate basketball. While Lebron didn’t attend either of the schools, he has played a major role in helping both colleges get more apparel and special footwear products since he’s signed his multi-year endorsement deal with Nike. The University of Akron has since been the recipient of various special Nike Basketball Lebron Player Exclusive’s including this newest Nike Air Max Lebron VII in the University of Akron colors of Navy, Gold, and White. On the inside of the heel you can find the University of Akron Zips logo. No word yet on availability but you can pick up a pair now at marqueesole.
