As the NBA season grows near, it appears that more images of potential silhouettes and colorways are beginning to surface for Nikes signature athletes. This time we have new colorway images that have surfaced for none other than LeBron James and the upcoming LeBron 12 model.
Here we have a Red/White- Crimson-Black colorway dubbed ‘Lion Heart’. As stated prior, the shoe is given a mostly red composite mesh upper engulfed by a white posite material to coincide. The remainder of the shoe uses accents of crimson and black for the branding while sitting atop a translucent outsole for a nice crisp finish. I personally find it intriguing that even with his departure from South Beach, the CW still seems to carry a Miami esque feel to it. Hopefully heat fans will have a little something to grasp onto considering the Kings offseason move to Ohio. Another side note is that the color blocking seems vaguely familiar, as it was previously seen on an early model of the LeBron X “Home” Edition.
The Lebron 12 “Lion Heart” color-way seems to be the only LeBron 12 with a set release date. Look forward to this dope CW of the 12 as it is slated to hit retailers Friday, October 31st at a price point of $200.
