LeBron James always makes sure to send some sneaker love to Akron, the town in Northeast Ohio that raised him. Usually that love comes in the form of player exclusive shoes created for the University of Akron's Zips, as with these LeBron 13s.

The two shoes, coming in home and away colorways, make use of the blue part of the school's colors and skip out on the gold. The away is no doubt the more interesting of the two thanks to a floral graphic on its upper that's similar to the "25K" NIKEiD option.

While these aren't retail releases, one size each of these LeBron 13s is being sold now on eBay here.
