The Men's Nike Basketball Shoe
for LeBron XII Elite
University Red/Bright Citrus/Bright Crimson/White is built for quicker, more physical post-season play with a redesigned upper that enhances lockdown and an extra Nike Zoom unit for added cushioning.
All-new Vertical Takeoff wings—super-strong "beams" that frame soft, protective Phylon foam—integrate with the laces and wrap your foot for extreme lockdown and lateral stability. The upper has less material than the LeBron 12, which gives it a lighter, stronger feel.
Five visible Nike Zoom units in the forefoot deliver ultra-responsive cushioning, and a maximum volume Nike Zoom unit in the heel provides excellent impact protection.
A breathable Dynamic Fit sleeve hugs your foot for comfort and support, and a new off-center lacing system builds on the shoe's supportive fit.
Flywire cables for lockdown and an adaptive fit
Lightweight, flexible textile base layer
Phylon foam midsole for lightweight cushioning and stability
Translucent rubber outsole for multi-surface traction and durability
Lion head lace-lock and signature tongue graphic
