LeBron James to Wear Special Nike LeBron 12 ID Celebrating Ohio Heroes

LeBron James and Nike celebrate 'Ohio Heroes' with special versions of the NBA star's signature shoe.

Unless you've been living in a cabin out in the forest for a few months sans Internet, you know that LeBron James returning to his place of birth to play again for the Cleveland Cavaliers was a very big deal. To celebrate, Nike and James selected 12 "Ohio heroes," people who are making a big difference in their communities, and designed a special version of the Nike LeBron 12 to honor them and represent their stories.
