LeBron James indisputably ruled the world of basketball in 2010 after securing a second straight NBA MVP award and leaving the Cleveland Cavilers to join the Miami Heat. To celebrate this momentous time in the King’s career, Nike cooked up an exclusive LeBron 7 “MVP,” a lauded style that’s now set for its first-ever re-release.

From toebox to heel, the “MVP” is refined, elegant, and packed full of special details — in short, bringing together all the best attributes of early 2010s Nike Basketball product. It’s reminiscent of a letter jacket in its construction, thanks to a soft grey fabric base, tumbled white leather overlays and a golden chenille Swoosh wrapped in embroidered burgundy trim on the lateral side. More burgundy hits the laces and collar, while the top eyestays are done up in a regal metallic gold to match the gold badge on the lateral heel.

Moving to the lower half, the full-length Air Max midsole is done up in bright crimson, sandwiched between white EVA foam and a semi-translucent red outsole that’s awash in gold flecks and features a gold stamp in its center. “Two” and “Three” appear on the left and right toe bumpers, and LeBron’s name is stamped directly onto the laces.

The “MVP” is certainly not lacking in details specific to King James’ achievements either. The most notable appears on the lateral heel, where an embroidered “MVP” graphic sits behind a cut-out Swoosh detail. “Witness” and “History” are embroidered on the left and right heels, respectively, while the inside of each tongue nods to one of ‘Bron’s back-to-back MVP awards. A special championship banner-inspired tag is sewn onto the insoles, and LeBron’s signature is embroidered on the tongue to finalize the look.

The Nike LeBron 7 “MVP” is set for a June 26 release via Nike SNKRS, and is priced at $200 USD.
