Before being put out to pasture, it appears Nike still has big plans for its LeBron 12.

While rumors and images of the Nike LeBron 13 have begun to make the rounds, these upcoming 12s are the ones grabbing the headlines now. Normally, an all-volt LeBron would be enough to grab people's attention. But add that these are made from the fibrous felt normally reserved for tennis balls and you have a LeBron model that is arguably one of the best of the season. The best part of this release, most folks will have access to them. According to Sole Collector, the "Tennis Ball" 12s are slated to release on Friday, August 28. Since the model is an EXT model, the shoes are expected to carry a price tag of $250.
