A Closer Look at the Nike LeBron 12 Elite “Elevate”

After briefly showcasing the sneaker as a part of Nike’s ongoing Elite series, here we take a closer inspection of one of the collection’s bolder offerings: the Nike LeBron 12 Elite “Elevate.” While the performance aspects of the sneaker – re-constructed wings at the medial sides for stability, reengineered mesh through the upper for a lighter feel – are the focal points according to Nike, the striking use of color here also renders this high-end model one for the streets as well. The sneaker is done up with a combination of sky blue tones through the upper and accented with orange at the interior lining and laces – intended as a physical representation of LeBron’s ‘sky high’ bound-leaping abilities. The use of blue-speckled white trim throughout adds a neat grounded effect to the pair. Pick up this pair online and from Nike Basketball retailers beginning May 15.
