It looks like the Nike LeBron 12 won't have a true "Sprite" style release, with the closest thing being the "Sprite Mix" LeBron 12 exclusive.

The Nike LeBron Soldier 9 on the other hand will veer toward those colors with this upcoming pair. The sneaker combines royal and green sections, although there's obviously no actual Sprite logo or official connection made here.

The Nike LeBron Soldier 9 "Sprite" sneaker release date is July 1. As a takedown model, the pair will cost less than most of the stuff from the LeBron line at just $130.
