Nike Air Max LeBron VII – Heroes Pack

I’m about to put you up on the illest original kicks in the minute, the Nike Air Max Lebron VII Heroes Pack. LeBron is definitely a sneakerhead and has continuously dropped multiple packages and colorways for every one of his signature shoes. The AML VII is no different and Nike and LeBron have gotten together to bless us with some HEAT. The Heroes Pack pays tribute to three of King James athletic inspirations that happen to be Nike athletes as well; Deion Sanders, Penny Hardaway, and Michael Jordan. Even though this pack has no confirmed release date yet (the reason that there's two versions of the MJ's from the pack) they are still blowing up the 'net. Its no secret that LeBron is fan of the basketball G.O.A.T., Michael Jordan. He is probably the best player to wear number 23 since his Airness, (shouts to MI’s own J-Rich) and has been drawing comparisons since he first entered the league. Now he has a pair of kicks that will also draw comparisons to MJ.

These are obviously inspired by the Air Jordan XI and take multiple cues from them including the patent leather upper, clear red outsole, and the signature bar across the tongue.

I think this was a cool accent by the design team, taking the LeBron Lion logo and giving it glowing red eyes

Here you can also see the multiple similarities between the Air Penny I including the cracks in the swoosh, the contrast stitching and unique tongue design.

Here's an individual shot of the Heroes Pack Deion's, not feeling these nearly as much as the other two pair. I am a diggin' the Nike Air Diamond Turf 2 (Deion's sigs) in red though
