Nike LeBron Soldier 12 Performance Review

“Zero Dark Thirty, 23 Activated”—It’s playoff time in the NBA and you all know what that means for LeBron James, it was the best new in this year .Ever since 2013, the King has shut himself off from the world of social media in order to fully concentrate on the task at hand and help lead his team to a deep playoff run.

So we will check it as below :

This year, reaching an eighth straight NBA Finals seems like it will be a difficult task as the Cavs are already in a 1-0 series hole and were not nearly as dominant as years past in the regular season.

For LeBron James, the playoffs is  focus on the glory of the championship. This is why LeBron is used to “shielding” social media before the playoffs. At this time, the pure black LeBron Soldier 12 appeared and was named “Dark 23” that LeBron’s  habit.

From the high school to now, LeBron Soldier 12 was born from the idea of an athlete. Their feedback suggestions include a lower collar design and simplified strapping, also the strap was simplified  from four to one  for these series of solider . The shoeless shoelace design is based on  last Lebron Soldier’s and  practicality as a starting point, and the drawing inspiration from Italian military backpacks and pants.

The design details of the Soldier 12 include elements of the LeBron 15, such as a soft knit upper and the protection  heel. The toe part  of shoes is made of nubuck, and the heel had an strap. The newly designed sole is equipped with a larger area of the front sole and the back of the Zoom air cushion.

In honor of that yearly tradition of going dark, the Swoosh has a LeBron Soldier 12 dubbed the “Dark 23” that features a completely blacked out color scheme. Equipped with two criss-crossing velcro straps, it allows the wearer the ultimate form of lockdown comfort while sporting a lower collar than the Soldier 11.


For the look ,it is a little like the fruit —banana , and the best different is the velcro strap , the quantity is three to four  form the solider 11 to 14.But the solider 12 , it is different . it used the two cross-folded designs of the velcro strap. I like this design and I never the  wear such this one . The upper used reinforcing that knit are what appear to be canvas or ballistic nylon panels at the toebox and heel, it is amazing , it also can lockdown the feet  well and nylon panels seem be better compare with last version .



We can see the strap  picture clearly . it is easy to adjust  , so  you dont waste time to loose it when you playing 


For the cushioning :it is unclear what sort of cushioning the latest Soldier model will use. If it follows the LeBron Soldier 11, expect huge Zoom Air units in the heel and forefoot.  The Phylon is still really lightweight and fairly unforgiving, seems like Soldier 11, but the Zoom units protrude from the outsole a bit which makes them feel more lively underfoot. I feel great  for the court , it is comfrotable and I feel the bounce. You won’t feel a super bouncy sensation but you’ll feel the units compress a bit more than last season’s model.


For the supporting: it  has been slightly modified and improved upon since the Soldier 10 is the support. Soldier 11 sits is much nicer because it’s wider than the last model , but for the solider 12, it is seems not good then the solider 11, because of the solider 12 lack of  support plate.The shoe offers the traditional forefoot outrigger in addition to a midfoot outrigger.

For the box , it is  seems simply ,but it is nice , compare with the box os Air Jordan 32 . this one  seeems will be great , just the balck box with solider words , it is nice any way . compare with the Kyrie 3 . it is also  just normal.


There are the details of the side .

Here is the courting  that inside .

For the traction :it is different compare with the The Soldier X,The Soldier X featured Nike’s C-Zoom ( C as in crappy) in the forefoot and heel. The XI actually feels a lot better, almost as good as the Hyperdunk 2016. It does start a little stiff but breaks in within a few hours of play.But for the solider 12,or whatever reason, when I’d plant in that section while changing direction or curling around , I can handle it well.The pattern is nice , the grip is nice .

Overall ,Nike LeBron Soldier 12  with a soft, circular knit upper with a protective heel and toe cap. Its heel areas include expanded velcro fields in order to accommodate for the aforementioned dual-strap enclosure system.And the performance well on the court , I am thinking it is nice for the supporting and cushioning . Also the material is amazing ,Dont missed it .
