Sneaker junkies will be pleased to hear that the 2012 Nike Pantheon sneakers will be available in early spring. The shoes originally debuted in the early 90s, but thanks to Nike's innovative technology and materials, these kicks are getting a modern facelift.

The 2012 Nike Pantheon sneakers have been generating a lot of buzz in recent months. The shoe will be an updated version of the Pantheon that was released 20 years ago. This model will include the LunarLon foam sole cushion: a material that the engineers at Nike developed after observing the movement and motion of astronauts in space. The material will add a level of comfort and durability unmatched by its counterpart. Also, the design of the shoe is more sleek and the splashes of blue and orange stand out well against the all-black colorway.
