At first glance, the Nike LeBron 12 Low sneaker, better known as the âLeBronold Palmer,â doesn’t seem like the kind of shoe everyone would wear. But after watching them for a few minutes straight, we are mesmerized.
Earlier this week, Nike unveiled the LeBron 12 Low, the latest offering in the Nike LeBronold Palmer series. LeBron James was spotted wearing a pair during practice ahead of the NBA All-Star Weekend, in case you need the reassurance that it’s actually not fluke. . The shoe will hit Foot Locker shelves on March 1, three weeks before the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. At $ 200 a pair, the Nike LeBron 12 Low is the first âLeBronold Palmerâ to retail.
[UPDATE Feb. 28, 12:45 p.m. Eastern: According to SneakerNews.com, the U.S. release of the âLebronald Palmerâ sneaker has been postponed; no new release date is available.]
In addition to a color scheme reminiscent of Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill logo, the shoes feature Nike’s Zoom hex kit on the sole, according to Sole Collector. There is also a drink logo on the tab, complementing the Palmer influence with the subtle palm tree coloring and graphics.
Here’s a look at earlier versions of the “LeBronold Palmer” via Sole Collector. Don’t expect to see Arnie walking around Bay Hill in a few weeks with this. But Keegan Bradley? This is an other story.
