Back in 2012, the world demanded a golf-inspired basketball shoe, so LeBron James and Arnold Palmer teamed up with Nike to deliver the LeBronold Palmer 9 Lows, complete with a photo of Palmer’s half-lemonade, half-iced tea signature drink on the inside.
Now comes word that the two titans of their respective sports are back at it. And if you've got a spare $200 lying around, you can own the next edition, the LeBronold Palmer LeBron 12 Lows, as early as March 1st.

The shoes feature Nike's new hex-Zoom kit on bottom as well as some Visible Air on the back, and if you have any clue what that means then more power to you.
The main difference, as far as we can tell, is the nod to Palmer's drink has moved from inside the shoe where no one can see it, to the back of the shoe, a step in the right direction.
We've included an very accurate artist's rendition of Arnold Palmer the next time he decides to play basketball. Could this guy get any cooler?
