words aren’t needed to describe this shoe unless you played in them. all that’s needed is to look at the sole. it looks like a wet footprint on a cement sidewalk or wet beach sand. the shoe looks very responsive.
freakishly athletic manic durant runs approximately four miles a game and 15 marathons a season.
per nike: designed by nike’s leo chang, the low-cut shoe features a flyknit upper engineered down to the pixel for maximum containment. specifically, it features a pattern with a distinct honeycomb structure precisely knit for the multidimensional movement of basketball and durant’s lateral quickness. flyknit technology engineering locks down the forefoot while still allowing the foot to move naturally. flyknit’s efficient material use also ensures the upper is lightweight, without compromising strength.
you will need good ankles however, this is a low-cut unlike the traditional wide flat-bottomed sprain-proof pretenders. so stretch those ankles and keep them limber.
durant wears them and puts his name on this shoe. seems like enough.
