The Nike LeBron 12 'What The' design celebrates the end of the popular basketball sneaker's 12 model.

With the upcoming release of the Nike LeBron 13, these sneakers represent the last launch of the popular 12 model. The Nike LeBron 12 was originally released in seven colorways in 2014, with new color variations seen throughout 2015. Now, the 13 will launch with the start of the 2015-16 NBA season. The aesthetic of the Nike LeBron 13 will reportedly be drastically different from that of the 12.

In celebration of the end of an era, the Nike LeBron 12 What The collection incorporates elements of historical Nike sportswear and all the designs of the twelfth edition of the Nike LeBron shoe. It's also inspired by other athletes who are the forerunners to basketball legend LeBron James.
