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 Footlocker.com (starting at 8:00 a.m. EST) for $ 130. Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will have this release.
The Nike LeBron 12 NSW Lifestyle takes on a “Denim” aesthetic, which is inspired by the blue collar work ethic of LeBron James’ hometown. Flush with the headlining fabric making up the quarter panels, premium micro-suede adorns the toe and tongue. The silhouette’s Flywire lace eyelets pop with Fireberry while the vulcanized gum outsole caps off the sneaker. Last but not least, “330” is emblazoned on each heel tab which is the area code of Akron, Ohio.

The Nike Air Max 90 is a timeless running silhouette designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield. Over the years, the sneaker has been re-imagined, redesigned, and remade while consistently keeping the innovative DNA that shook up the industry over two decades ago. This “Denim” edition pushes the bar even higher while playing nice with the design language of the original. Infrared plays a large part in this sneaker while washed denim replaces the typical suede overlays and toecap while the Swoosh is decked out in a snakeskin-like material. What do you think of this unique take of the Air Max 90? Let’s have a dialogue in the comments below.
