Hexagonal Nike Zoom Air might sound like a mouthful, but try these babies on and you'll no longer be mad at saying it over and over. Because it's like working out on a pair of pillows, but with monster grip. With the patented Zoom Air in the forefoot, Nike's built a lightweight, responsive training sneaker that has a similar outsole DNA to the LeBron 12.

Having had a chance to wear-test these joins in Portland earlier this week, we can confirm that the combination of plush cushioning and lockdown feel is very real. It gets you quick off cuts while still feeling stretchable.

"Training athletes who are Zoom fans and go all out should rejoice," said Nathan VanHook, Nike's Footwear Design Director for Athletic Training of the new trainer, via Swoosh press release. "The Zoom Hypercross Trainer uses our latest cushioning innovation — hexagonal Nike Zoom Air — to save weight and gain flexibility and, perhaps most importantly, allow us to place that snappy Zoom Air feel into the forefoot where athletes need it most."

The Nike Zoom Hypercross hits retail in the Volt colorway you see above starting on October 10. For more info and a closer look, scroll through the photos up top and peep this video from Nike:
