The Akron VII is one of my favorite shoes this year. Last year’s version was very nice too. Actually, the Akron VII is the fourth installment from Nike and LeBron James for the University of Akron basketball team. Three of them (ZL6, ZS3, AML7) were released to public in limited numbers, while the first one – ZS2 – was issued to the Zips’ players only. Unlike other Nike LeBron sponsored schools, Akron gets only one colorway per model. The latest version – Air Max LeBron VII – dropped exclusively at Footlocker’s House of Hoops stores on 2/27. Those, who missed out on a pair still have got a chance as Akrons will be restocked at HOHNYC on Tuesday. By the way, Akron players have started wearing their VII’s last week.
