A new pair of LeBron James shoes was launched on Tuesday by Nike in Oregon and they dubbed it LeBron 12s.

Bleacher Report said this will be available on Oct. 11, the same day James and the Cleveland Cavaliers will play against the basketball player's former team, Miami Heat, in Brazil.

It has been previously reported that old models of LeBron shoes provided a bit of discomfort to athletes because if its weight. Even James himself said that it was a bit bulky for him, prompting Nike to "redefine" the style upon James' request.

The Cavalier earlier told ESPN that he wanted to be able to wear his signature shoes. "It has been a frustrating process. But obviously, I know that Nike wants to do what's best. They're not going to put me out there in harm's way. So we're redefining the shoe to fit what's best for my foot," James said.

According to Bleacher Report, the newest addition to his signature brand is a lot comfortable than the previous releases. It will also come in seven colorways including the one that James himself spent time to design, the Lebron 12 "NSRL" (Nike Sports Research Lab).

Aside from the NSRL, the six other colorways according to Nike Inc. are Heart of a Lion, Dunk Force, Instinct, Six Meridians, Trillion Dollar Man and Data.

For those interested how the NSRL shoes would look like, Bleacher Report said that the shoes sport a bright teal base with grey, black and orange accentuations.

In a release, Nike Basketball VP of Footwear Kelly Hibler said that the newest pair is "Nike at its best."

"We take the insights from a world-class athlete in LeBron James to inform forward-thinking designs and create the most innovative shoes. We've combined the art and science of engineering in the LeBron 12 to advance the game of basketball's best player," Hibler added.

The new shoe release will also feature bright colors and promises more precision and better performance. It will be available for a price of $200 and can be bought at the Nike website or in majort athletic footweear stores in the United States, Sole Collector reported.

The LeBron shoe line has been one of the marking factors of the basketball star since he signed a 7-year contract with Nike worth $90-million in 2003. His first signature pair of shoes, according to al.com, was the Nike Air Zoon Generation.

Based from Nike's advertisement on the new brand release, the shoes were made "to enhance the explosiveness of James" through its Nike Zoom Air bags with a hexagonal design that will surely aid to "responsive cushioning." Moreover, the shoes are made with flywire cables for dynamic lockdown and hyperposite wings that will give needed support and protection to your feet.
