The successor to the Zoom Shift has begun to hit overseas retailers. Now, it’s only a matter of time before the Nike Zoom Shift 2 releases Stateside.
WearTesters began reporting on the Nike Zoom Shift 2 once overseas images started to emerge, but it looks like the shoe’s design has been overhauled since we last saw it. You can take a look at the early samples of the Zoom Shift 2 here, but the retail version of the shoe sports a brand new design along the upper and rides atop new tooling.
The traction looks aggressive, but it also looks similar to that of the Nike LeBron 15 Low. This should work well for those that play on their toes and move laterally often (linear movements might not receive the same bite depending on foot strike placement). Overall, the Zoom Shift 2 looks like a takedown of the Nike Kobe AD NXT — a model known for its superb fit and lockdown. Hopefully, the Zoom Shift will provide a similar fit for a fraction of the price.
Cushion is unknown, but we believe the Zoom Shift 2 will feature a forefoot Zoom Air unit like the original. The shape, size, and thickness of the unit will likely be unknown until FastPass gets a pair to the bandsaw.
Enjoy your first official look at the Nike Zoom Shift 2 below and share your thoughts in the comment section. Will this shoe be budget-friendly version of the Nike Kobe AD NXT or will it just be another forgotten budget model from Nike?
