To celebrate LeBron James’ fourth MVP award, the fine folks of Nike have come up with a special release of his signature LeBron X sneaker. The new shoe is incredibly colorful and features just about every shade imaginable. To make the design ever more interesting, the left and right shoe do not match.
So what was behind the very unique style of LeBron’s shoe?
“The vibrant LEBRON X MVP shoe fuses the unique colorways and designs of each style in the LEBRON X series, which James debuted in August 2012. The design details, including MVP on the shoe tongue, weave the story of James’s incredible journey over the past year. It’s a path that has seen him striving for excellence by perfecting his shooting efficiency, assists and rebounds to cut through defense effectively as an individual and as a team. Along the way, James has traveled from the courts of London to the hardwood arena of Miami, achieving victory in an extraordinary 27-game winning streak.”
It is definitely eye catching and different, but I am not sure how successful the look really is.
In the end, it is just another design that Nike wants to pop on the court and steal the show. While this design will certainly serve that purpose, we all just want to see whether or not the Heat can run through the Chicago Bulls in game one like everyone anticipates.
