After releasing in 'Wheat' early next month, the on-court version of the Nike LeBron 12 will make its return wearing new colors.
This upcoming drop sports a deep royal mesh base, wrapped in metallic silver Hyperposite. A blue-tinted translucent sole caps off the look below. Is this colorway inspired by LeBron's favorite football team? Yes, the shoe has been given a 'What If?' nickname, imagining the possibility of LeBron suiting up in silver and blue on Sundays.
The 'What If?' Nike LeBron 12 hits retailers on Saturday, March 14 for $200.
