Nike Air Jordan
Nike Air Jordans were simply THE basketball shoes back then. Sure, many sporting goods manufacturers had already developed hoops-ready sneakers that were made exclusively for the court. But after the great success with Nike’s basketball shoes, the basketball market was then revamped. Nike’s basketball shoe line does not only include Air Jordans nowadays. Other legends like LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Paul George, or Kevin Durant have their own signature sneakers at Nike. Beaverton offers every basketball player the opportunity to identify with their star by launching several basketball shoes at once. In recent months, the Nike Zoom Freak 2 basketball shoes by Giannis Antetokounmpo have been gaining popularity. One of Giannis’ best colourways was the Nike Zoom Freak 1 “Coming to America”. The model was inspired by the favourite movie of the basketball player.
Nike Basketball Shoes
Other basketball sneakers that have recently made their mark on the court are the sneakers from LeBron James. The new basketball shoes from Nike not only shine on the court but can also be seen on the streets. The success of LeBron James’ basketball shoes increased as King James reached his new milestone and passed MJ on the list of eternal scorers. LeBron’s latest basketball sneaker is the Nike LeBron 18, a shoe with several features that will help basketball players score, plus it has a sick design that will please all sneakerheads.
