On February 13, 2004, Lebron hit the court in his Wheat Air Zooms to play in the Rising Stars Challenge. More than a decade later, Nike is paying homage to the iconic game with these LeBron XIIs decked out in an all wheat upper with gum sole. Looking like a sporty Timberland, the shoe continues the theme of Nike's workwear range included the Air Foamposite in a similar treatment. Gold accents break up an almost completely nubuck exterior by showing up on the metallic Swoosh on the gum-sole. We doubt many will ever see court time, so if you want to add these flashbacks to LeBron's past they will be arriving at select Nike accounts on the 4th of April.
