LeBron is using his next Nike release to go dark in the classiest way possible. He's chosen to go downbeat with his lifestyle look and we all stand to benefit from his choice to turn the lights out.

The Nike LeBron 12 Lifestyle 'Blackout' is a stark suede release that doesn't let any other colors into the mix along its upper. A leather lining and wide-mouthed mesh tongue blend luxury and comfort in a seamless fashion while a sewn-in ribbon on the heel signals the switch from light to dark. The outsole houses a powerful pop of red to spice up the entire affair.

The darkness that is the Nike LeBron 12 Lifestyle 'Blackout' is set to descend on Jan. 24 to select retailers around the globe. You can cop yours from the comfort of your own home by hitting up Footpatrol.
