Now that we have some really detailed images of the Nike LeBron 12… lets take a look at some of the tech involved.
The upper, first and foremost, is not Flyknit. Looks more like an engineered mesh upper with a TPU overlay shaped like a chain link fence. Posite is found along the medial side panel and collar while Dynamic Flywire makes a return appearance. Zoom is segmented into zones along the entire outsole, from heel to toe. Not sure how I feel about it at the moment. Visually, it looks cool. Comfort wise… it should be fine. Flexibility on the other hand… even with the flex grooves, the transition doesn’t look as if it will be very fluid for smaller guys.
Take a look for yourself down below and let me know how you feel about the tech used for LeBron’s 12th signature sneaker.
