Nike Air Zoom BB NXT: For speed and comfort

Basketball has changed in the recent years. Players now are not confined to any specific role. The best ones have to adapt and be flexible on court. 

Basketball shoes have to keep up, and this is what the Nike Air Zoom BB NXT does. Specifically, it delivers the following:

Responsive cushioning. The three layers of React and two Zoom units work together to provide reliable energy returns and impact protection. 

Reliable traction. The grooves on the outsole are designed based in the positions of the two Zoom units. The resulting configuration provides a stable multidirectional grip. 

Targeted flexibility/durability. The upper is made of lightweight and breathable mesh. It has textured prints all over, but made heavier in areas that require strength such as the heel and toe cap. 

Nike Air Zoom BB NXT: A strong non-signature shoe

The Air Zoom BB NXT is not associated with any major player in the NBA. However, this does not mean that its tooling and composition is inferior to signature releases from the likes of LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Kobe Bryant. This low-top basketball shoe is innovative, and truly has the potential to be at par with the technologically advanced signatures.
