The changes don’t stop for LeBron James. In addition to joining forces with Shaq this fall in Cleveland, the League’s reigning MVP will make a big departure from his Nike tradition in the Air Max LeBron VII, which releases this fall.

The pics say it all. Flipping Zoom Air for Air Max and Flywire, King James’ seventh sneaker will apparently be lighter than any of the previous LBJ incarnations. The switch to Air Max could also suit LeBron better than Zoom Air, considering his big man frame.
