Inspired by another iconic hero made better through technology the “Trillion Dollar Man” LeBron 12 releases on December 1st, 2014. According to Nike Basketball Color Lead Eugene Rogers… “It’s kinda like a next chapter in a story. Thinking about that 70’s superhero who was made better through technology, in the same way we take LeBron and put him through the NSRL and help him reach the next level of his basketball game, and that our starting point. One thing you’ll see is that we put the motherboard graphic on the Zoom pods, so that’s a cool detail that’ll show through and speak on technology and things like that.” Among all announced colorways the “Trillion Dollar Man” Nike LeBron XII is the only with with #6 placed on the middle of the tongue.

Nike is looking to continue the Nike Sportswear branch of the LeBron James’ signature line with the LeBron 12 Lifestyle. On Tuesday, King James helped introduce his next on-court shoe, which we already saw online, but he did wear a pair of the EXTs, which we laid our eyes on for the first time. He debuted a Black, White and Red colorway during the unveiling of “The Twelve”. Nike got things right with the initial LeBron X Lifestyle, but many things seemed wrong with the 11’s and the demand just wasn’t there. Seems like Nike Sportswear designers are back on track with the “NSW #Twelve” and King James calls it. Take a first look here, and let us know what you think.

The LEBRON 12 for younger athletes has been thoughtfully engineered to address the specific needs of the Grade School, Pre-School, Toddler and Infant age groups as they grow in life and in basketball. “Across the range of LEBRON 12 shoes for young athletes we used Nike research to better understand the anatomy of the young athlete’s foot and focused on delivering performance not just style,” said Michael Saranthakos, Nike’s Senior Footwear Designer for Young Athletes. “We’re extremely proud of the whole range of LEBRON 12 for young athletes. They represent the kind of innovation and passion that is the hallmark of our commitment to inspire and improve all athletes.” Both NRSL and Lion’s Heart colorway have been confirmed to be released in Kids’ sizes in the upcoming weeks.

Yesterday, Nike Basketball unveiled the LeBron 12 during a special event held at Nike HQ at Beaverton, Oregon. The LEBRON 12 is designed to enhance LeBron James’ explosiveness while combining three key benefits: superior cushioning, harnessed support and natural flexibility. The LEBRON 12 was born in the lab, where scientific data and analysis substantiated the need for next-generation cushioning, support and flexibility. This science-led insight was maximized for James while accounting for the diverse needs of athletes worldwide. The lead colorway, the LEBRON 12 NSRL, was inspired by the new shoe’s genesis in the lab. Five visible, hexagonally-shaped Nike Zoom Air bags in the outsole of the LEBRON 12 enhance natural motion while providing accelerated explosiveness with each step. Nike Zoom Air delivers the same great cushioning it brought to footwear when first introduced to basketball in 1995; now the hexagonal Nike Zoom Air is mapped to the pressure points of the foot where it’s most needed for basketball performance. In tandem with the sole, the lightweight and breathable Megafuse upper is designed to act as a molded second skin that minimizes weight and amplifies breathability and comfort. The first version, the aforementioned NSRL colorway, will be launched on October 1st in China and October 11th globally.
