The latest LeBron XII EXT digs deep into James’ Ohio roots, featuring a design inspired by Akron’s long-established rubber industry. A city widely recognized for its bustling factories, Akron has produced countless rubber goods, most notably automotive tires for vehicles all over the globe.
The “Rubber City” inspiration is brought to life with a rubber upper emulating tire treads. A touch of luxury is added with chrome detailing taking place over the lateral side Swoosh. Additionally, the LeBron XII EXT RC features a translucent ice outsole that’s perfectly suited for off-court use.
The Lebron 12 EXT RC QS "Rubber City" ($310) drops Saturday May 9th. Sizes 8-13.
