Nike is doing some celebrating for LeBron James’s fourth MVP award with an exclusive special edition LeBron X MVP shoe and a “Witness History” marketing campaign. James is now only the second player in NBA history to win four MVP titles in five years, joining a group of four-time MVPs such as Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Michael Jordan and others. To mark his achievements, Last night during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Chicago Bulls, James is wore the special edition LeBron X MVP shoe. He wore it for the opening MVP ceremony and then later changed shoes for gameplay with a much lighter, speed ready, playoff edition pair of Lebron X. He says that the Lebron X MVP is very heavy and not as lightweight due to being not made for gameplay. He wore mainly to commemorate his MVP Award.
The vibrant LeBron X MVP shoe fuses the unique colorways and designs of each style in the LeBron X series. The LeBron X MVP shoe will be available in limited quantities at select retailers in North America and China soon.
