When it's all said and done, LeBron James' legacy will be as much about sneakers as it is about basketball. The hungry young player launches tiers of shoes every year and one of his more under-appreciated models comes from his Nike Lifestyle line.

The Nike LeBron 12 NSW Lifestyle is rebooted here in a tonal colorway that feels supremely luxurious and definitely fit for a king. Blue suede lines the upper and gold logos are lasered in to keep things majestic. The pull-tab displays the words "Letter of Intent," which usually refers to a student athlete's commitment to a college, but we all know LeBron skipped that step and went straight to the NBA.

That little tidbit of information and more will hopefully be explained further upon their May 1 release. You'll be able to pick up a pair at select retailers including Foot Locker.
