To kick off LeBron James’ More Than A Game world tour in partnership with Lionsgate in Chicago, Nike Basketball released a limited edition Nike Air Max LeBron 7 back in 2009. Each of the ten cities of the tour, Nike released only 123 pairs of this exclusive colorway.
Inspired by the school colors of Saint Vincent-Saint Mary High School (SVSM) in Akron, Ohio, where James played basketball. This LeBron 7 comes dressed in a mix of White, Metallic Gold, and Gorge Green.
Each shoe included an image from the Lionsgate film, More Than A Game, which shares James’ journey both on and off the court with his teammates from SVSM. The images were inspired by one of James’ six pillars or personal credos – Passion, Fearless, Tradition, Community, Family and Loyalty. The Chicago style represents “Loyalty” and has an image of James with his arms around two teammates from SVSM.
While it’s highly unlikely for Nike to ever retro these, where you you rank them amongst other LeBron 7 releases? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
