The NIKEiD LeBron 12 has been available for quite some time and with the shorter build times fans already got their pairs. There are a lot of Cavs-inspired looks out there, both Hardwood Classic and classic Wine and Gold, but since we’re missing the staple Black, White and Red colorway this year here’s one option to consider. My buddy @jr_lyon apporached the LeBron 12 iD in the classic way and created a Black, White and Red version, which is actually inspired by the elusive “Playoff” Air Zoom Generation PE. Check out the pics below and let us know if you’d consider buying a pair if there were released by Nike as a GR.

Before LeBron James announced his departure from Miami to Cleveland the LeBron 12 was already in production. This resulted in a lot of signature touches that were relevant before he switched his jersey number back to #23. Some believe it was also the reason for the delay of the Nike LeBron XII, but I think it’s the eyelet thing that’s the real reason here. His previous #6 appears on the heel tab, the midfoot shank and the outsole beneath one of the pods. The re-defined version is available through Nike iD. Some of the recent school PEs also come with the OH-IO placed instead of #6.

The Nike LeBron XII “Instinct” drops this Saturday. Nike is also looking to add a new Instinct option to the LeBron 12 iD, which adds the ability to create custom floral graphics on the Hyperposite panels, in addition to previously available color options. Check out the preview below and let us know if you’re going to exercise this option for your own designs.

Last night, LeBron James debuted two alternate Cavs uniforms inspired colorways of the Nike LeBron 12. The general consensus on social media was that you can create the exact same colorways on Nike iD. The truth is you can ALMOST create the LeBron 12 Cavs PEs look-a-likes on Nike iD. The Navy and Red pair is easier to make because you will only be missing the navy Swoosh border. However, the Navy and Gold version is more complex because LeBron’s PE uses a White Swoosh on the side (with red border) and Gold L-crown-J logo on the tongue, which is impossible to separate on LeBron 12 iD’s. Other than that I’m not sure if the Game Royal / Midnight Navy upper will look like LeBron’s PEs either. Other than that they’re pretty close. Check out the mock ups below and compare them the his on-court kicks. Which version do you prefer?

The LeBron 12 has undergone it’s first major debut along with being added onto Nike iD. It’s probably the right move for Nike since the way that Nike iD works is usually you have to wait at least a month to get your shoes. We should be on the safe side with the whole “defect” thing. Additionally, it’s probably the first time ever that the price has been downgraded in the LeBron James’ signature line. The LeBron 12 iD costs $245 instead of $250 for the cheapest iD option for the LeBron 11. It’s not a bargain, buy hey at least the price didn’t went up. All in all you can design your own pair right now here, however the system is a little buggy right now and I can’t preview all outsole options. I think only the clear version works in all views. Check out a couple of quick mockups below and let us know your work.

You should consider my previous post mainly for checking out the first impression video as most of the other stuff is out of date as of 30 minutes ago. Heidi Burgett (Nike PR Director) has just confirmed via Twitter that the “Heart of a Lion” LeBron 12 will indeed drop as planned on Thursday, October 30th. Additionally, the Nike LeBron XII will make its debut on Nike iD later today. It’s a great day for Nike LeBron fans after all.

It might take a while for Nike Basketball to be ready for Lebron’s Decision 2.0 to come back to Cleveland. After all the very first version of the LeBron 12 is still in Miami’s vibrant colors. Not to mention that James is still undecided on what number to wear on his new jersey come October. His previous jersey change was one of the reasons for a new signature logo. The new logo is number-less, but if LBJ goes back to #23 should the old logo come back? One thing is certain… we need to get used to Wine and Gold instead of Teal and Pink and the new NIKEiD option for the Nike Soldier 8 is a great example. It’s also an opportunity to design your own Cavs inspired LeBrons before Nike starts releasing them on their own. Truth be told, back in the Cleveland era, there were only a few 100% Cavs styles released because most of the colorways were based on Red. Now with the Nike Soldier 8 option available on Nike iD you can take advantage of this interesting build and design something truly special. Check out a couple of random designs below.

LeBron James is still rolling with the Soldiers, but the Manu Ginobili of the San Antonio Spurs provided us with the Nike LeBron 11 sighting in Game One of the NBA Finals. Last night, he sported a Grey and Gold colorway, but turns out he has at least three different versions ready to go. All of them look pretty nice. Kind of makes me wish he would have exchanged his kicks with King James.
