Update: The “What The” LeBron 12 was pushed back to September 26th.
This year’s What The LeBron 12 is more like Who The LeBron. The eclectic aesthetic choices on this special edition LeBron 12 pay homage to some of Nike’s most illustrious signature athletes over the years, ranging from the bold Chicago-inspired 23 callout on the posite overlay for a nod to Michael Jordan to Air Tech Challenge vibes on the forefoot Swoosh for Andre Agassi. There’s a hidden meaning behind seemingly every random color choice here, as the heel even references the Nike Cortez and Bo Jackson. What results is a shoe that tells the story of the history of signature athletes all the way up to the modern day’s reigning King. Where do you think this Nike LeBron 12 ranks among other “What The” installments? Be sure to check out the latest photos below and know that you can secure your pair on September 26th for $250.
