LeBron James pays homage to Arnold Palmer with Nike ‘Lebronald Palmer’ sneaker



At first glance, the Nike LeBron 12 Low sneaker, better known as the “LeBronold Palmer,” 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 “LeBronold Palmer” to retail.

[UPDATE Feb. 28, 12:45 p.m. Eastern: According to SneakerNews.com, the U.S. release of the “Lebronald Palmer” 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.
