Basketball shoes have a lot of research and development within them. They are the product of partnerships with professional athletes, sports medicine experts and designers. All this aims to make a shoe that not only looks good but can function effectively as another important piece of equipment that plays basketball. Basketball shoes also have a dynastic quality. They are based on successes and failures with previous models and add new innovations. A good example is the Air Jordan series of shoes. So a good place to start when looking for a good shoe in this genre is one with heritage. That is why Nike Zoom BB II is being reviewed.
Zoom BB is a slipper for all serious players used by teams in both the NBA and NCAA college teams. So you know it is a show that has been tested and tested under different playing conditions. Shoe's design is quite straight forward. It has upper leather, high ankle, support and for cushioning the Zoom Air unit in the heel and front foot. The shoe works to be lighter than its predecessors and even forgets traditional support designs to achieve this.
The leather upper is traditional but has a unique twist. It has holes cut into it to maximize the airflow through the shoe so that the feet can breathe and allow moisture to sweat out. The shoe also uses the constantly functional high top design to provide good ankle support and prevent rollovers which is one of the most common sources of basketball injuries. It does, however, forget the rigid winding structure used to provide additional stability.
The cushioning system is tested and true but since it is thinner in BBII, it will definitely run the risk of being worn much sooner than in previous editions of the shoe. Time will see if going in this direction was a wise decision for Nike.
The shoe also provides good traction with its herringbone sole in special composite rubber. The sole also has special tensile areas in important area of the forefoot and heel.
The shoe has a couple of negatives. The heel cup, for example, is designed for a trifle too large. To counteract this, a player has two abrasions for a pair of socks. All good sports shoes have a comfortable fit. However, this can easily be solved with a change in size or tighten the shoe further. Except this is a pretty consistent shoe.
