Ultra light. Ultra fast. Ultra fantastic. The Zoom Air Technology is without doubt one of the best performance cushionings in basketball. Consisting of light, highly reactive and very thin air chambers, the Nike Zoom fibers bring the foot very close to the floor and make for maximum comfort and aggressive flexibility – fast cuts and multidirectional moves know no boundaries with this cushioning.
The most striking visual feature are the hundreds of tiny, vertical fibres, which link both Zoom Air layers. Upon hitting the floor, the fibres relieve the pressure; after the impact, the fibres rebuild and adopt their originally tightened form.
The result: an excellent cushioning, which fits different sports and their demands. Especially in basketball, small and lightweight players benefit from the technology. Nike Kyrie 3, LeBron XIV, Kobe A.D., PG1 and the Zoom KD 9 – the best Nike performance shoes of this season are all equipped with the Nike Zoom. Great players, great shoes, great cushioning.
