The Nike Elite Series returns in a new Rose Gold Collection merging advanced innovation and inspirational story telling for Kobe, LeBron and KD. I don’t wanna begin another rant on the pricing of these shoes, because there’s something else that’s worth mentioning. Kobe and KD are out of the Playoffs. LeBron is wearing the standard edition. Personally, it’s really difficult to find any reason to jump the gun on these Elite models. I prefer getting shoes that are actually being used on court. With LeBron it’s difficult due to high volume of PEs he’s using, but in my humble opinion he should wear the GRs more often.
Putting all that aside, the “Rose Gold” LeBron 12 is actually not bad. I like the dark base. I like the Metallic Red Bronze details. I love the “Beastmode” Lion teeth on the tongue, which I hadn’t noticed before. I would like to get some replacement laces instead of the default Hot Lavas, though. I think going with black laces would do wonders here. The shoes are already out. Hit your usual Nike Basketball spots to check these out.
