The off court silhouette of LeBron James’ 12th signature sneaker, the Nike LeBron 12 Lifestyle now has an official release date set for Friday, October 17th, 2014. The Nike LeBron 12 Lifestyle retail price is set at, $130 USD and will be available through select Nike Sportswear retailers like Nike.com.
On the court, LeBron James is one of the greatest spectacles to ever play the game. Off the court, he’s a father, friend, and student of greatness—even his own, making it a point to learn from the past to better his future. Wherever he goes, he’s greeted by flashing cameras and a swarm of relentlessly dedicated media personnel. To prepare for another 82-game season—and the circus that surrounds it—he needs to seek solitude.
Featuring a synthetic leather upper, pyramid-shaped molds scale the silhouette like walls of a fortress–shielding his on-court persona of “King James”–from his off-court lifestyle. Black patent leather on the toe box shines like his energetic play on the hardwood and his smooth, relaxed demeanor off it. Gold aglets highlight his championed legacy. Challenge Red hues on the translucent sole and Flywire provides contrasting accents on the shoe’s monochromatic base. Completing the design, a woven heel pull-tab, displaying James’ signature and lion crest also bears the message, “Protect me from myself”—a reminder that the only person that can prevent your greatness stares back at you in the mirror.
