Celebrate LeBron’s Second MVP Win with the LeBron 7 MVP Special Edition Air Max Sneakers
When LeBron James was declared the 2010 NBA MVP, he became a charter member of an exclusive club of players who won the honor in consecutive season. The list includes legends like Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Michael Jordan. To mark the occasion, Nike created a special edition LeBron 7 MVP for him to wear as he received his award. The sneaker is a slightly redesigned version of the Air Max LeBron VII, which is currently available in a wide variety of colorways and editions.
The Air Max LeBron 7 MVP edition sneaker features a white colorway with Wolf Grey fleece used in the Flywire side panels and a chenille swoosh logo. The sneaker is accented in crimson and gold, and the familiar lion logo on the medial heel section is replaced with an MVP varsity logo. Other notable features include the words “witness” and “history” in gold embroidery on the white collar of the shoe, an L and J insignia on the heel and an “LBJ 23” signature plus swoosh on the tongue. Inside the insole you can find a tag certifying that the shoe has been “engineered and crafted to the exact specifications” of LeBron. While there has been no official release information as yet, pictures have surfaced of the special packaging the sneaker will come in, which is a special edition gold Nike box festooned with the LeBron signature and the Nike swoosh in red.
Nike is also releasing a special MVP edition of the LeBron VII Low sneaker, which features a white colorway. The front of the toe box features laser-etched MVP trophy logos and 08-09 and 09-10, as well as an MVP x 2 logo on the lateral side panels. The tongue features an embossed LBJ signature and Nike swoosh in silver. Although there are no official release details as yet, these sneakers are expected to be an ultra-limited release that may not be generally available in retail outlets.
