Even though it can easily be considered one of the most appealing and hyped editions of the LeBron 12 yet—regular or low-top—the LeBron 12 Low “LeBronald Palmer” just dropped on Nike Store unannounced. (As you can guess, by the time you’re reading this it’s already sold out.) In fact, the sneaker inspired by King James’ love for the ice tea and lemonade drink named after Arnold Palmer never had a solid release date, dropping unexpectedly and sporadically at various sneaker shops around the country.
This now-unorthodox release style for a major sneaker poses the question: Would you prefer more shoes to drop in the same way? Could this be a breath of fresh air; a welcome opposition to the current procedure of raffles, line-ups, camp-outs, and Twitter RSVPs just to get a sneaker you want? Or is the status quo for the most coveted releases working for you? Let us know your thoughts on the matter in the comments below.
