Get ready for one of the most colorful sneaker releases so far this year. The Nike LeBron 12 “Prism” is a multicolor dream with a prism upper that is reported to be a pixelated nod to one of LeBron James’ favorite cereals, Fruity Pebbles.
For non-diehard LeBron fans, this isn’t the first time Fruity Pebbles has served as inspiration for one of Bron’s signature models. Earlier this year, a GS LeBron 12 was released featuring the colorful treatment and who can forget the original ‘Bron model to carry the Fruity Pebbles nickname, the grail-worthy Nike LeBron IV PEs.
While not as eye-catching, another noteworthy detail is the “Finish Your Breakfast” line seen on the heel’s pull tabs. Though the shoe doesn’t seem to have any direct correlation to famed NYC streetball legend, the late John “The Franchise” Strickland — who frequently used the phrase during games and whom Nike honored in the past with an Air Force 1 — it’s still a pertinent line in basketball culture and fitting for this particular release.
As far as a release date, Sole Collector is reporting these are scheduled to drop next Saturday, July 18, with a price tag of $250. For those fiending for these right now and you’re a size 9, you can head over toeBay now and to secure your pair.
