There are enough young fans who count LeBron James as their favorite NBA player that it makes eminent sense to create an LBJ signature shoe specifically for kids. That model is the new Nike Air Akronite, combining attractive retro style and performance details. The latter includes a visible Air-sole unit in the heel and an ankle strap for an adjustable fit. LeBron’s signature crown logo is embossed on the strap and molded onto the heel, while “LEBRON” appears on the tongue of the right shoe and  “JAMES” on the left. Look for the shoe to hit on November 1.
