‘Zero Dark Thirty’ Nike LeBron Soldier XII Has Been Pushed Back

Three days ago, on April 12th, Nike was supposed to launch the Nike LeBron Soldier XII in the initial ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ colorway. If you can’t find them… you’re ain’t the only one. For some reason only the Big Kids’ version is available for purchase.

Turns out the SOLDIER XII has been delayed in both U.S. and Europe markets. Footlocker Europe dropped some info that we should expect them in May. I’m not sure if this only applies to the initial colorway because there’s the second version – ‘Hazel Rush’ – coming out next week. It is still scheduled to drop on April 19th.

Retailers in Asia didn’t get the memo, it seems, and some stores have released the shoe to public. At least we get some detailed pictures including a first look at the SOLDIER XII box, which for the first time gets a brand new design. Check out the close ups below and keep checking back for updates on the actual release date for the Soldier 12.

Nike LeBron Soldier 12 SFG ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ – Release Date

LeBron James is expected to enter his ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ mode cutting off all social media activities come Playoffs time. He is also expected to debut the next iteration of the Nike Soldier series – the SOLDIER XII. We already got a preview of the Camo colorway and now we get the catalog images showing the Blackout version.

The ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ colorway is scheduled to be released on April 12th, 2018 for $130 as fans will get a chance to gear for the Playoffs.

Based on the provided images there are a couple of things worth mentioning. There’s a knitted upper around the ankle area, but that’s not the BattleKnit used on the 15s. The signature straps are still here. The Zoom Air on the heel seems huge.
