Things have come full circle for LeBron James. He’s about to enter the playoffs wearing a Cleveland Cavaliers jersey for the first time since 2010. Highlights of him walking off Boston’s TD Garden after losing to the Celtics have been played over and over since he’s rejoined his hometown team and now the Cavs will match up with a much different Celtic squad in the first round of this year’s playoffs. His Nike signature line has hinted at the past throughout the year. There was the recently released LeBronold Palmers as well as the LeBron 12 EXT Wheat that nodded at the shoe he wore during the Rookie Challenge. So why not continue the hometown references by lacing up this LeBron 12 EXT ‘Rubber City’ to show Akron some love during the first round to show how far the narrative has come in the twelve years LeBron’s been in the league? The lifestyle variety of the LeBron 12 sees a rubber-like construction complete with tire tread throughout the upper while a chrome Swoosh imitates a car’s rims. Available April 25th, 2015 for a premium $250 price point, you can always secure this pair early on eBay.
