Share This Page: Nike LeBron 12 "Rubber City" In the new colorway of the LeBron 12, Nike has paid tribute to the King’s origin. The “Rubber City” sneaker is decked out in tire-esque rubber covering the upper showing homage to Akron, the rubber capital of the world. The rubber is detailed in treads like a tire down to the finest detail, even including protruding sprues (the tiny rubber hairs that sometime appear on tires). The LeBron 12 “Rubber City” is heavily colored with a sleek black hue while the sole remains the usual sky blue. A nubeck upper compliments the rubber body of the sneaker. The Nike LeBron 12 “Rubber City,” is available in stores and online tomorrow 4/25 for $250.
