The comparisons to Michael Jordan began before LeBron was even born, and in light of his recent decision to join Dwyane Wade in Miami has certainly put that juxtaposition to a screeching halt. As if anything was legitimately comparable to the Air Jordan line, the bar was set pretty high for Nike and LeBron James, an at this point, this wear-test sample is the closest we’ve seen. The LeBron VII is easily the most popular of the entire Nike LeBron signature line and this wear-test colorway featured a black patent leather mudguard and varsity red Air unit should only remind us of one of the most well-known sneakers in the entire shoe-head almanac – the Air Jordan XI Bred. In fact, the colorway, is somewhat similar to the Air Jordan XI x Air Max LeBron VII Heroes Pack, minus the white midsole and the NFW weaved upper. Also interesting is the medallions located on the lateral heel of the shoe; instead of the ‘L23′ logo, a curious question mark is in place, either alluding to LeBron James’ preseason claims of changing his uniform number or keeping this wear-test sample unidentifiable to LeBron. This colorway definitely ranks near the top of best AMLVII colorways, so check out the gallery of images after the jump and let us know what you think of this size 15 sample recently sold by lacedheat on eBay.
