High-performance basketball shoes aren't just for grown-ups and young adults, kids like to ball too -- Nike is aware of that, which is why they created these shoes designed specifically for the demands of younger athletes. The shoes are designed for infants, toddlers, pre-schoolers and grade school kids.

The grade school Nike LeBron 12s borrow visual elements from the adult version and include a Megafuse upper for increased stability and lockdown. The pre-school kicks offer extra flexibility to promote natural motion and support the directional changes and impacts that are a part and parcel of learning basketball. The toddler shoe uses a rubber cup sole to promote flexibility and provide increased traction. Finally, the infant shoe provides comfort, breathability and flexibility for little ones learning to crawl and walk.
