The last time one of the premier point guards in the league got their own Nike shoe was back in 1995, when Jason Kidd got his first and now classic and never retroed Nike Air Zoom Flight shoe. Think about it, he might have been wearing these shoes as he took out on a date "it" girl of mid nineties R&B, Toni Braxton. Now over a dozen seasons later, late bloomer Steve Nash (linked to Nelly Furtado) and young buckTony Parker (now married to Eva Longoria) have gotten shoes inspired by their game play (whats up with point guards being linked to fine, famous celebrities?). Introducing the Nike Zoom BB:
Could these be hot in midnight blue and orange? Perhaps an Adonal Foyle limited edition shoe distributed locally?
Its minimalism, quite a constrast to the army boot or high heels Nikes out there right now, in addition to its smooth, clean, rounded edge, together, give it a late 80s, early 90s throwback feel. With it's styling, it looks like these could go with your prom suit/tux this upcoming year. On the otherhand, it makes me wonder what Nike designers are thinking when their shoes are either overdone with buckles and clunky heels or almost "yaaaawn" worthy like this shoe. Is what seems like a deliberate lack of aesthetics worth the price tag. At their list price of $109.99, are these shoes hot or not???
