How many of you had a pair of Gary Payton’s Nike Zoom GP back in the late 90s? For those in need of a re-up, Nike will soon be bringing back Gary Payton’s first signature shoe for its 20th Anniversary.
The Nike Zoom GP comes with a very unconventional design that includes an asymmetrical lace cover, a self-adjustable ratcheting buckle that keeps your foot in place, a leather build with an additional leather overlay on the lateral side of the toe equipped with circular cutouts (for aesthetic purposes only) and a Zoom Air cushioned sole.
Above you will get a first look at the 2019 version of the Nike Zoom GP done in a White/Black-University Gold-Mystic Green color scheme. As of right now, the Nike Zoom GP is expected to release on April 20th. Stay tuned for pricing info.
Los Angeles is one of the biggest and most influential cities in the entire world. It is also home to one of the largest sneakerhead communities as some of the biggest and most popular brands look to Los Angeles for inspiration. Nike is the latest brand to use LA as their canvas with these two new colorways of the popular Nike Cortez.
Inspired by two of the city’s sports teams (Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Kings) each colorway of the Nike Cortez comes covered in the team’s colors. First we have the Dodgers-inspired pair which takes on a Deep Royal Blue upper along with white, red, and metallic accents. The Kings pair features a Black upper with Metallic Silver and White accents. Both pairs feature nylon uppers with suede detailing and Los Angeles graffiti-style text in red (blue pair) and purple (black pair) on the heels to signify the connection.
Be on the lookout for these Los Angeles-inspired colorways of the Nike Cortez to release on April 1st for $100 each. Which pair will you be going after?
