The Nike KD 12 has leaked online and this is our first look.
The internet wins again as the upcoming Nike KD 12 has leaked online.
The shoe looks to be comprised of a textile while the midsole seems as if it’s wrapped in clear TPU. We’ve been told that the shoe will not feature React but they will feature full-length Zoom, like the KD11. If this is true, then we’re unsure as to why the TPU wrap is in place as it may add unnecessary weight and structure to the shoe.
There is a section that points out Quad Axial Flywire while describing its purpose as being for multi-directional dynamic containment. It’ll be interesting to see what that looks like in-hand and how it feels on-foot.
Additionally, it looks as if Nike has altered its sizing structure for this release as you can see from the image below that a size 5, which tends to be a GradeSchool/Kids size, will be considered a Men’s size with the full $150 retail price. This also means that there likely won’t be any tech changes between these smaller “men’s” sizes and the actual men’s sizes.
The Nike KD12 is expected to release on April 6 with its retail to remain at $150.
