The LeBron 12 has release has been delayed according to Nike PR Director Heidi Burgett. At this point the reason for the shift in dates is a “cosmetic issue”. What exactly that cosmetic issue is remains to be seen, but it will certainly be interesting to see if the final product of the Nike LeBron 12 “NSRL”, the launch colorway, is at all different from the one we’ve seen depicted so far. See the info direct from Burgett after the break and stay tuned to Sneaker News for the new Nike LeBron 12 release date.
Due to a small cosmetic issue w/ some of the LEBRON 12s, we have delayed the initial retail launch. New launch dates to come.

“Product quality is a priority for Nike. Due to a small cosmetic issue with some of the LEBRON 12 shoes we have delayed the initial retail launch that was scheduled for China on October 1, and the global launch that was scheduled for October 11. We will communicate an update on the retail date as soon as possible.”
