LeBron 12 is releasing another color option before the year ends, this time targeting the daredevil in you — Call it the "Trillion Dollar Man."

With a dominant reflective blue and an outer shell of Metallic Silver and TT-Electric Green, the shoes seem to give a futuristic feel. The shoelaces are also green.

The TT highlights zigzag to cover the base color. The vibrant orange also appears as an outline of the Swoosh on the silver shell, as well as on the heel tab, the name tag on the tongue and the crown on the LeBron emblem.

"King James strikes again," said Wear Testers, explaining that the LeBron 12 is becoming a favorite among avid fans of the LeBron genus of footwear.

"With the Nike LeBron 12 now in full swing, and a long list of upcoming colorways set to launch, today we take a look at a very wealthy option in the 'Trillion Dollar Man,'" said Sneaker News.

For $220, the "Trillion Dollar Man" will be carried Tuesday by some retailers worldwide, plus Nike.com beginning at 8 a.m. EST (5 a.m. PST) at one a customer.

"... [S]tores are now beginning to receive their stock of the 'Million Dollar Man'-inspired shoes," ensures another Sneaker News report. You can order at Sneaker Politics.

The shoe gets a price increase compared to other models. It will not be available through phone order, however.

"The latest colorway of the LeBron 12 is inspired by James's legendary work ethic and physical gifts combined with Nike's finest performance technology," said Nike.com, adding that it was tailor-made to fit the King's needs.

According to the Sneaker News report, the shoe meshes two dimensions of James. One is his businessman persona outside of the NBA league and the other, which is of course, his ferocious image on the court. It's a combo of bold tones, said the earlier Sneaker News piece.

The moniker befits James' economic standing, the Wear Testers report said. The midsole gets a peek-a-boo treatment and the colorful outsole is flexible. The outsole also has a design that is unique compared to previous colorways.

"They treat the foot right!" Wear Testers said, but the outlet has one not so favorable comment: "This shoe is pretty nice, but I would probably say it is my least favorite 12 to drop so far."

A bunch of Sneaker News commenters agree that the color choices are not impressive. Meanwhile, others are psyched about the release.

"These are easily the best 12's yet...I wanted these since I first saw these pop up," one said. Another commenter agreed: "Yup! It's time to change my focus away from them Jordans."

"Best colorway yet .. Gotta sacrifice somthing for these ... Must for my stash," said LAMdoe.

Macklemore, on Instagram, wore the "Trillion Dollar Baby" in a photo with James. According to Complex, meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers star is wearing a never-before-seen pair of Nike LeBron 12 NSW Lifestyle shoes.
