One of the best basketball performance sneakers of the past few years is here in a new look to make it more versatile than ever. While LeBron James and the original Nike LeBron 12 killed it both on the floor and on sneaker store shelves this year, it’s not exactly the type of shoe that looks super dope to wear out on the town or to a get-together. It’s a behemoth of a shoe that works because it brings together so much incredible technology from all of the Swoosh’s best designs. This is necessary too, considering it needs to support a 6-8, 250-pound basketball player that moves with grace, ferocity, power, and speed.
But when you showcase all of that tech in a much lower profile, as Nike did here, it’s like the best of both worlds.
The LeBron 12 Low seemed to drop from out of nowhere, and the recent “LeBronald Palmer” version is already being called a classic. Now dropping at Champs Sports, the latest colorway–done up in an ocean blue and yellow gold coloring–is definitely going to turn heads as we head into the warmer months.
Sporting both Nike Max Air cushioning and a Zoom unit for impact protection, the sneaker also has Flywire cables and a wing-like Hyperposite design to offer all the support you need. Add in a Neoprene inner sleeve and open mesh from heel to toe and you have a winner here that offers a variety of options for anyone looking to stunt.
This is one of the best sneakers of the month and it’s another viable option for anyone who is a big enough LeBron fan.
