When the NBA Playoffs begin, LeBron James enters "Zero Dark Thirty" mode, meaning a social media blackout and no contact with outsiders until Cleveland's postseason run is over. To correspond with LeBron's laser focus on the overall mission, Nike continues to release all-black colorways of his signature sneakers.

Next up is the all-new Nike LeBron Soldier 12, styled in anthracite and black suede and mesh, with 3M reflective Swoosh branding along the middle cross-strap. There's also target and crosshairs logos printed on the insoles, representing the militaristic nature of the concept.

The "Dark23" LeBron Soldier 12 will release on Wednesday, April 25 for $130 at nike.com and Nike Basketball retailers.

UPDATE: (04/18): Nike confirms the "Dark 23" Soldier 12 will be released Wednesday, April 25 at 10 a.m. ET from SNKRS.
