After being officially unveiled, Nike is already preparing for the debut launch of the LeBron 12.

Kicking things off will be the 'NSRL' (Nike Sports Research Lab) edition, which comes in a hyper turquoise, metallic cool grey, hyper crimson and black colorway. They are set to release in mid-October, in full-family sizing. Normally, we would have to wait until release day (or close to it) for official links to purchase the shoes when they drop. However with this launch, Nike is taking a different approach. Instead of waiting to tweet out the link in October, they already have the page live on nike.com with a timer, counting down the days left until the LeBron 12 is available for purchase.

The 'NSRL' Nike LeBron 12 hits nike.com as well as select Nike Basketball retailers on Saturday, October 11. If you're planning on picking a pair of these up whenthey release, be sure to head over to nike.com and bookmark the official LeBron 12 launch page so you don't miss out.
