This season, for the first time ever, Nike has decided to release a Team Bank version of LeBron James’ main signature shoe. Some of you were obviously disappointed getting three very similar shoes. Especially when you consider all those other hot colorways that remain under wraps. While it would be nice to get more VII’s, I am glad Nike did the TB thing, cause now we get to see more love for LeBrons. For example, during the ongoing March Madness. A lot of players decided to rock the Air Max LeBron VII in this year’s NCAA Tournament.

Ever since the Kentucky Wildcats broke out their Air Max LeBron VII PEs I’ve been hoping for them to drop.

Ohio State Buckeyes are set to open NCAA Tournament today in Milwaukee. After winning the 2010 Big Ten Tournament last week in Indianapolis, Ohio State enters NCAA tournament play with a 27-7 overall record and a 14-4 regular season mark in Big Ten Conference play. Because OSU is one of two universities sponsored by Nike’s LeBron brand we take a closer look at their current basketball shoes. Some of the players are still wearing the Zoom Soldier III Ohio State Exclusive while others have already switched to the Air Max LeBron VII. Too bad they didn’t get a personalized edition as they have been wearing the White/Red NFW General Release version.
UPDATE: We dubbed them as OSU’s and the team wore the shoes last night (AMLVII Grey/Red TB). Continue reading for photographic evidence.
