"Cork" Nike LeBron 12s are a real thing after all, as shown by the photo above.
The image, which is circulating on social media, allegedly shows the shoes on the feet of LeBron James himself. The idea that a "Cork" Nike LeBron 12 already exists is sort of strange though, seeing as how the first pair of Cork LeBrons was a reference to LeBron winning a championship – something that he's still eight games away from doing this year.
Then again, perhaps the pair is a far-out retail release, meant for after a Cavs championship, that wasn't meant to be seen by the public just yet. If that's the case, Sole Collector will have a sneaker release date for the Cork LeBron 12s.
