LeBron James is back with the Cleveland Cavaliers and will be rocking a new pair of signature sneakers with Nike, too!

The NBA star unveiled the 12th edition of his signature hightop sneaker yesterday (Sept. 16), which is tailored to utilize his combination of speed, strength and explosiveness. The shoe’s DNA underwent depth research by Nike’s Sport Research Lab. The design features five hexagons in the outsole, which each pinpoint a particular pressure point to enhance the athlete’s motion.

In addition, the upper realm of the show is created with Megafuse, which includes Dynamic Flywire cables for “lockdown support” and includes Hyperposite pieces on the sides for additional support.

“The new technology is lightweight,” James said regarding his new line. “It allows me to explode. When I’m landing it allows me to absorb the landing.”

The new neon-colored Lebron 12 shoes will be released in retail stores on Oct. 11 at $200 a pair.
