When it comes to his sneaker releases, LeBron James definitely isn't one to rest on his laurels. Like his other Nike drops, he's been back in the lab tinkering on the Nike LeBron 12 to bring us the Elite series of the sneaker.

As usual, the post-season release proves to be the cream of the crop and has a few improvements to its build based on him playing on the court in them. The most notable improvement is the stability-providing cage around the upper that works in concert with the rest of the technology to provide an amazing new shoe.

Three colorways of the Nike LeBron 12 Elite are set to drop and the first one is the red Team colorway on April 18. After that you can expect the blue-tinged Elevate on May 15 and the sinister-feeling Rose Gold on June 5. Of course you can find them all at Nike.com on those dates as well as select retailers.
