It’s almost April, which means that the Elite and low-top versions are about to take over the LeBron 12 silhouette. For the Nike LeBron XII Low it means a lighter looking design ideal for the upcoming warmer weather. The new version channels the Acid Lion colorway of the LeBron 11 Low by using a gum outsole, however, the new design features a white upper base. It’s something we’d expect closer to July and the annual USA Basketball / Independence Day make ups, but the presented White, Midnight Navy, University Red and Metallic Gold could also pass as a nice Cavs themed sneaker. The “USA / Cavs” LeBron 12 Low is scheduled to be released on Thursday, April 9th for $175.

With the LeBron 12 Low, Nike has divided the global market. In Europe they already released the LeBronold Palmer colorway on multiple occasions. In the States… the same thing happened with the “All Over Red” version, which continues to hit Nike Basketball retailers across the nations at random times. This time it’s available at Eastbay, Footaction, ruvilla.com and a couple more. It’s funny how after nearly 6 months and almost 15 different colorways of the Mid LeBron 12, the two most sought after items came to us with the low-top model. Hypebeast can’t really take advantage of the Nike LeBron line this season, but I’ve seen some All Over Red LeBron 12 deals made with number 3 in front. Now you can get these for the regular price, which is $175 for the standard version (All Over Red) and $200 for premium (LeBronold Palmer).Read the rest of this entry »
The exclusive all red colorway of the Nike LeBron XII Low, which surprised fans with random pop ups last week, is about to hit retail on a broader scale. Footlocker is the only store to carry these so far and seems like more stores have started receiving their shipments. The updated launch locator shows more spots, but for some reason most of them are located on the east coast. Oddly enough, the “Red” LeBron 12 Low has become a sought for item, probably due to the mystery surrounding the release. This plus a huge popularity of predominantly red styles, obviously. Check out a couple of new photos below and let us know if you’re looking to try these out.Read the rest of this entry »
Nike has unveiled the LeBron XII silhouette with the release of the “Lebronold Palmer” colorway of the Nike LeBron XII Low, which as of today has been released at Nike Basketball accounts in Europe. It’s been postponed in U.S., but a new all-red colorway of the new LeBron James low-top has made a surprising debut yesterday at Footlocker. The best part is the updated price tag of $175, which compared to the $200 for the “LeBronold Palmer” is a normal price. Life is good again… we don’t have to pay the same amount for the mids and lows. Predominantly red colorways seems to be more popular than ever. We’ve already seen the EXT version, the Lifestyle and now the low-tops.

Nike has finally designed a brand new low-top LeBron instead of using the recycled design for the first time in 5 years. Additionally, they’re giving us a very bold look to kick things off with the “LeBronold Palmer” design. King James wore these during the All-Star weekend in practice raising a few eyebrows. Now, the popular design inspired by the “Arnold Palmer” drink is set to be released and it’s gonna be very soon. The launch date for the LeBronold Palmer LeBron 12 Lows has been set for Sunday, March 1st. The bad news is the upgraded price. Nike is asking the LeBron fans to spend $200 for the latest LeBron James’ signature low-tops. I’m not sure if it’s only this colorway or all future LeBron XIII Lows, but either way it’s not looking good. Check out the new pics and let us know if you like this special design enough to make a purchase.Read the rest of this entry »
It’s been a busy week and it’s far from over. Nike Basketball and LeBron James have already unveiled a couple of sick LeBron 12 looks with the premiere of the EXT series, but now we get the first look at the upcoming LeBron 12 low-top. James wore it for the first time during the Eastern Conference All Star practice and he went all the way with the infamous LeBronold Palmer design known from a set of LeBron 9 PEs. At this point it’s hard to say if it’s one of the upcoming colorways, but it’s about time to get familiar with the brand new LeBron XII Low silhouette that will be released in the upcoming weeks. The biggest change is the 180 Air Max unit instead of the recycled 360 Air Max cushioning that’s been around for years. There are a couple decent looks below. Check it out and let us know if it’s a good change or not.Read the rest of this entry »
The Air Max LeBron VII Low was the precursor of the 360 Air Max based LeBron James’ signature low-tops, which still go strong today. However, the first version of the LeBron 7 Low, the budget one, didn’t come with the 360 degree cushioning and seems like it was just a trial project with only 2 Air Max colorways released to public. It didn’t stop Nike designers from creating a couple of special ones including the presented “Miami Dolphins” and “Summit Lake Hornets” styles. The real story behind them is a way of telling a story of LeBron James moving to Miami back in 2010 through this “Where You Came From… and Where You’re Going To” pack. I guess the pack has a different meaning today and it’s more like “Where You Go To College… and Come Back Home”. After all LeBron James graduated and now it’s time for a new chapter… shoes-wise, too.

The recently released China colorway of the Nike Max LeBron XI Low seems to be the final chapter in the latest installment of LeBron James’ signature low-top sneakers. The China LeBron 11 Lows conclude a series of twelve different colorways that were actually released to public, however, I still have very high hopes for this super clean White and Grey sample to reach retail too. The “Chinese Vase” Max LeBron XI Low is probably the most creative design this year by using actual patterns from a Chinese vase. Normally this would be dull, but Nike managed to give it a proper aggressive feel. Check out the new detailed photos below.Read the rest of this entry »
