LeBron James is no stranger to hard work. His drive is what guided him to basketball’s ultimate pinnacle. His strong work ethic can be dated back to his early roots growing up in Akron, Ohio, where he watched his city prevail through the dedication of its industry workers. Nicknamed the “Rubber City,” for its major tire production, Akron’s blue-collar workforce is honored in the latest LeBron 12 Lifestyle.

Featuring denim on the quarter panels, the upper reflects the rugged apparel worn by the city’s factory workers. Micro-suede runs from the toe up the tongue, adding a premium touch that’s accented by vibrant Flywire support on the eyelets. A volcanized gum sole complements the shoe’s lining, reflecting the color of sturdy work boots. Additionally, the city is honored with its “330” area code highlighted on the heel tab.

The Nike LeBron 12 Lifestyle Denim drops Friday, December 19th at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker and (starting at 8:00 a.m. EST) for $ 130. Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will have this release.
