LeBron James returned from injury to the Cavs lineup this week, just in time for this weekend’s release of the Nike LeBron 12 “23 Chromosomes.” The “23 Chromosomes” release is officially a Black/Pink Pow/Blue Lagoon/Black colorway but there is a much deeper story behind the design of the shoe.

Via Nike:

Basketball is in LeBron James’ DNA. The newest colorway of the LeBron 12 is inspired by his superhuman ability, with a colorful stylized interpretation of DNA gel-readings on the Hyperposite upper.

This release isn’t the first to feature intricate designs on the upper but it is definitely among the loudest utilizing a colorway that is intentionally eye catching.

The Nike LeBron 12 “23 Chromosomes” drops on Saturday, January 17 at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker stores and Footlocker.com (starting at 10:00 a.m. EST) for $ 200. Check out the Launch Locator to find out if a store near you will be carrying the release. Kids sizes will also be available for this release.
