    1st! Would look cooler in another colorway imo. Are these some sort of Nike trainer shoes?

  • angelino

    Cool….Miami Dolphins colors.

    I knew there was a reason I hadn’t bought my summer kicks yet. Hopefully these have Zoom in them. Where can I find more colors and angles of this shoe?

  • Chris

    I love the colorway, but Nike needs to come up with new designs and stop rehashing big sellers from the past.

  • thesubwayconnection

    The sole is fresh, but the upper needs a remix.

    Hope that Max ZOOM heel air isn’t brick hard like the Lebron 3 were.

    I have these coming to my store next month in a PHX colourway… still mainly black, but purple where the aqua is on these. Tight.

    these shoes are just the first of many that will drop this summer, tons of new colors all with the new zoom tech and of course the lower strap for true ballers. these are a touchback to chuck and some others from the 80′s who used to be the big hoop stars.

    One of Nike’s best Bball shoe offerings in a long time. Unlike the original Alpha’s which were heavy, stiff, and tight out of the box, these are extremely lightweight and flexible. The originals had layers of stiff leather which took a while to break in and were always hot, particularly in the summer. The shoe is very lightweight, but still supporting. It reminds me of last year’s adidas Summer Run, but this is a better shoe because of its support and fit. The mesh panels are well placed and allow good ventilation. The toe box is very roomy. Overall, the shoe is comfortable right out of the box. The variable lacing system and mid-foot strap let you adjust the fit, so you foot won’t slide inside the shoe or cram your toes into the front of the shoe when you stop. The sole is well cushioned, particularly the visible air heel. The overall style is appealing, with a subtle blend of two blue colors, and a mix of tumbled and patent leather. The heel has a corduroy-like fabric which is soft and easy on the Achilles. Note the high tongue, which also adds to the overall design balance of the shoe. Very comfortable, cool shoe.
