How about a performance sneaker with an Air Max unit in heel – for even less than a hundred bucks? And who supplies us with that kind of offer? Nike, of course. They present the AIR MAX AUDACITY 2016! When you talk about the most underrated shoe, the Audacity's name is bound to fall. But how come? On court, its performance is flawless. Even NBA All-Star Anthony Davis has been convinced by the shoe's ability and therefore wears it every now and then. Nevertheless, people are judging by the price...and not by its performance. Supported by a phylon midsole, the Max cushioning perfectly blends in with its superbly breathable mesh upper. Additionally, the upper has been enhanced in certain areas, reducing the risk of injury enormously. Flywire inputs and sockliner combine for an improved footing and – at the same time – provide a comfort boost. With the Rio Olympics just around the corner, Nike releases the USA version of the Audacity – of course, honoring Team USA. Furthermore, the Air Max supported performance sneaker has been equipped with a non-slip rubber outsole, whose herringbone pattern adds well-needed traction for quick direction changes. Don't forget: even less than a hundred bucks. Not so underrated anymore, huh?

Brand information: nike

When it comes to basketball, there is no way around Nike – the brand with the Swoosh belongs to the game like dunks, three-pointers and cross-overs. Whether in the NBA, European leagues or your neighborhood streetball court – the world’s largest manufacturer of sports equipment is a staple in all things basketball since the 1980s.
The Nike „Blazer“, released in 1973, was the company’s first sneaker designed specifically for basketball. While the shoe was very functional for its time and was worn by NBA scoring machine George „Iceman“ Gervin, Nike still was not able to step out of other sports companies’ shadows. Following models of the early 80s, like the now legendary „Air Force 1“ and „Dunk“ also did not manage the success the company had hoped for. That all changed when in 1984/85 Michael Jordan decided to conquer the NBA and the shoe game with Nike. While the „Blazer“ was Nike’s way of politely knocking on the door of the basketball-sneaker world, they blew it out of its frame with the success of „His Airness“ and the „Air Jordan 1“.

Nike is the frontrunner in basketball

Ever since then Nike changed the game of basketball. The triumph of the AJ1 was not only the birth of the iconic „Air Jordan“ - dynasty. It also paved the way for a variety of shoe lines like the Flight, Hyperdunk, Air Max and Foamposites. Today about 60 percent of the NBA’s players rock the Swoosh. Among them are some of the biggest names of the game: From Sir Charles Barkley in the 90s, Kevin Garnett and Kobe Bryant in the 2000s, to Lebron James and Kevin Durant today – the superstars of the NBA achieve mindblowing feats wearing their signature Nike sneakers.
Nike not only specializes in shoes though. These days ballers can dress up in perfomance sportswear bearing the Swoosh from t-shirts to hoodies, sweat pants, shorts, sweat bands and socks. Wearing Nike you can be sure that while playing your next game not only will you be outfitted in highly functional and valuable gear – you will also look pretty damn good wetting jumpers from all over the court.
