Being a completely new line-up to Nike’s already impressive basketball footwear collection, the Zoom Rize looks to compete alongside the recent leaks of the Alpha Dunk.

Official tech specifications include:

UPPER: Engineered mesh upper. Traditional tongue and lacing. External heel counter helps to stabilize and lock in your ankle. Pull tabs.
MIDSOLE: Large Nike Zoom cushioning in the forefoot provides a bouncy underfoot sensation with amazing response. Mid-high collar with internal padding provides comfort and support.
