The story of LeBron James' legendary status starts from birth as he was simply born to play. The Nike LeBron 12 Double Helix tells the story of just how deeply embedded the game is in his DNA by using a vibrant set of hues.

The majority of the upper is cast in a merlot hue while hits of volt leap in as well for an intoxicating mix. Hits of pink serve as the perfect accent to this color scheme and a translucent outsole is the perfect finishing touch.

These will be available at Nike.com on Feb. 28 and are priced at $200. The price tag may feel exorbitant but this definitely isn't your average basketball shoe.
