More Than a Game LeBron World Tour in Akron Tomorrow (Friday, August 21)


If you're a student, off tomorrow, unemployed, or you can play hooky without anyone important noticing, perhaps you'd be interested in heading down to Akron for the latest stop of the LeBron James World Tour.

Head over to the Summit Lake Community Center (380 West Crosier Street, Akron) between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. for a whole mess of things having to do with LeBron James, Nike, More Than a Game, Basketball and LeBron. And LeBron.

First and foremost, before any of the festivities, everyone should be excited to see what the custom artist series of the new Nike Air Max LeBron VII's look like. For every city on the tour, an artist is doing some one-of-a-kind kix and, so far, the DC ones were pretty hot and the Chicago ones were sub-par. Akron's will be unveiled tomorrow.

As will the limited edition (total pairs: 123) of the Akron colorway of the Nike Air Max LeBron VII's. Once again, a new release hits with each new city. Each has a scene from More Than a Game on the shoe along with the city's name and other unique details. Pics should be available mid-day tomorrow at the latest.

The festivities themselves are probably similar to what went down in the previous two stops of the tour. WFNY has a full recap up of the DC event here. Expect music, some basketball, probably an appearance by King James, and the build-out from Nike displaying the history of both James' career on the court and his shoes.
