Lebron James has recently unveiled the look of his brand new shoe “The LeBron 12”.

 According to Nike the key to these shoes are the “Nike Air Zoom Units.”, which are the hexagonal packs on the sole.

 The Lebron 12 were originally scheduled to be released in the USA on October 11th 2014 but have been postponed by Nike due to “cosmetic issues”.

“Product quality is a priority for Nike,” the company said in a statement on its website. “Due to a small cosmetic issue with some of the LeBron 12 shoes, we have delayed the initial retail launch that was scheduled for China on Oct. 1, and the global launch that was scheduled for Oct. 11. We will communicate an update on the retail date as soon as possible.”

 Since the shoes had already gone into production before James switched from the Miami Heat to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and subsequently switched numbers from No. 6 to No. 23, one thought is that Nike needs to switch out the “6” with the “23” on a visible tag on the back of the shoe. In pictures of the shoe released by Nike last month, the back tag of the shoe says “LRJ.06.”
