One of the goals that Nike wanted to achieve by the end of 2020 has been reached. For the next Nike Air Zoom BB NXT, the Air technology will not be the same but will reach a new level of comfort thought especially for basket players. “The sneakers are built like a car made of different pieces, each one of them does its job but in contemporary with the others,” says Ross Klein, Senior Creative Director of the footwear Nike Basketball division. Thanks to Klein’s work, the sneakers will feature an exclusive React sole combined with the Air Zoom pods that will guarantee a great reaction to the movements of the players.
The exposed React Foam hits right under the heel for a “responsive sensation” while a thin plate combats with necessary rigidity just above. Two Air Zoom units are placed underneath the ball of the foot and will absorb the athlete’s energy with most quick movements. While the upper plays a supporting role to the aforementioned. Plush the foam tongues and padded collars ensure stability, protecting the Achilles heel while ensuring a comfortable fit.
The Nike Air Zoom BB NXT will be available in the “Dangerous” colourway, black and green, from July 25th in the United States, and then in the rest of the world. While the white colourway “Rawthentic” will be released in September.
