LeBron James' twelfth signature sneaker is finally here.
Nike has officially unveiled the LeBron 12 at its World Headquarters in Oregon for a special media event. The two-time NBA champion's latest model blends a combination of superior technical specs with rich storytelling reflective of James' talents on the hardwood.
The sneaker was designed to enhance James' super human explosiveness, while still providing the benefits of superior cushioning, support, and flexibility.
The LeBron 12 features a Megafuse upper that provides a second skin-like fit for max breathability and comfort. There's also Dynamic Flywire for lockdown support and Hyperposite material, which provides targeted protection.
The outsole received a major update and is equipped with hexagonally-shaped Zoom Air bags that can map the pressure points of the wearer's foot. This allows for better movement, explosiveness, and responsiveness.
Seven colorways will be revealed during the event, so we'll be updating this post as the event goes on.
