Had the opportunity to try on the 13s today. I was really impressed to say the least. I was never really a fan of Lebrons outside of a few select models (7,8,9,10). But out of the box these felt awesome. The 12s felt incredibly stiff out of the box. But the 13s fit like a glove. They also seemed to fix the lacing problem where it was incredibly hard to tighten the laces on the one piece upper like on the 12a. These tightened easily. Another thing I noticed is that the shoe is cut significantly higher than the 12s. They felt like a true high top almost like the clutch fit drive but not as high. Overall a pleasant experience. Definitely a nice shoe right out of the box but I can't justify paying $220 for them. I'll wait for them to go on a steep discount to cop.
