The Nike LeBron 12 “Rubber City” will finally be hitting retailers this Friday, 4/25. The rubberized kicks pay homage to LeBron’s hometown of Akron, Ohio. Akron is apparently known as the “Rubber Capital of the World” due to its rubber production during the 19th century.
The LeBron 12 “Rubber City” features a predominately black colorway with silver accents. Notable features include a texturized upper that is similar to that of a car or bike tire. The sneakers are finished off with an icy blue sole.
The LeBron 12 “Rubber City” will be hitting select retailers on April 25th. They are priced at a fairly steep $250.
