Nike Air Zoom GP3 Review

The Nike Air Zoom GP3 is one of the most interesting shoes to have ever been created. And what’s crazy is that it wasn’t the only one of its kind when it released in 2001. Gary Payton, Scottie Pippen, and Jason Kidd all had signatures with this type of setup. We should be grateful to the creators of shoes like this because their experimentation paved the way to the many modern footwear technologies we have now.

Check out Chris’s thoughts on the Air Zoom GP3 in the video and article.
