As LeBron James prepares to play the 11th All-Star Game of his career, Nike Sportswear celebrates his first ever All-Star Weekend appearance with a 'Wheat' LeBron 12.

James' latest signature shoe has been given the hiking boot treatment, complete with metallic gold Swoosh branding and a Zoom loaded gum outsole. The date '02.13.04' is printed on a heel, a callback to the '04 Rookie Game.

Nike's SNKRS app doesn't list a release date, but expect that information soon.

UPDATE 3/30: The "Wheat" LeBron 12 release date is April 4.
