Nike Air Zoom G.T. Run Review

Pros:
Crazy amount of cushion
Consistently snug fit
Cons:
Materials could be more premium
Sacrifices a bit of court feel

Performance of the Nike Air Zoom G.T. Run:

The traction of the Nike Air Zoom G.T. Run performs consistently well with a nice bite on clean courts but requires frequent wiping to maintain its performance on dustier courts. Reviewers all agreed that the shoe has an insane amount of cushioning underneath your feet. It feels very bouncy and provides lots of impact protection. All of the reviewers also agreed that the materials don't feel premium considering the price. However, performance-wise, they hold up well. The support is fairly consistent, with only one reviewer mentioning that they encountered heel slippage. Overall, the Nike Air Zoom G.T. Run is a great option for anyone who prefers to have as much cushion as possible and doesn't mind giving up some court feel to get it.

The Nike Air Zoom G.T. Run isn't too impressive straight out of the box, but after breaking them in, they slowly become better. There is plenty of cushioning, and the traction becomes solid.

Overall, the Nike Air Zoom G.T. Run is a really nice shoe. The only gripes I have are the less-than-premium materials and the traction when on dirtier courts. Other than that, you get tonnes of cushion, the support and lockdown are good, and the fit is solid.

If you're looking for a crazy cushioning setup, the Nike Air Zoom G.T. Run is the shoe for you. It's a solid shoe for anyone who doesn't mind giving up some court feel and responsiveness to get more impact protection and bounciness.

The rubber compound is hard at the beginning. However, the traction does become pliable and more impressive to play in as you wear them more often.

The traction is pretty good on cleaner courts with a strong bite, but it is somewhat slippery on dustier courts even though it doesn't pick up much dust.

On a clean court, there is a solid bite. But on a dirtier court, it picks up dust pretty quickly. A quick wipe made things tolerable.

The full-length React outsole is denser than the React used in Nike's running shoes making the impact protection excellent. The two layers of Zoom units in the forefoot also make the shoe very bouncy.

There is a lot of cushion with a react midsole, a react insole, a forefoot Zoom unit, and a forefoot Zoom Strobel unit. You get a lot of impact protection, and it is very bouncy.

The cushion setup is insane. There is a lot of compression in the forefoot due to the Zoom Strobel. The tradeoff is that there isn't as much court feel, but if you love cushion, this is amazing.

The upper is rigid and stiff, but after a break-in period, they do soften up, and the performance improves over time.

The dual-layered upper is the least premium aspect of the shoe. It feels cheap and does not look good after playing in them. However, from a performance perspective, they get the job done.

The quality of the materials is not great compared to the price of the shoe. It does conform to your foot nicely, but it doesn't feel premium.

The heel padding helps to prevent heel slippage, while the raised midsole and rigid upper keep you contained in the shoe.

I had no issues with support or lockdown. Your feet aren't going anywhere with the midsole that rises and the wide base of the shoe.

I had some heel slippage, which was annoying, but the insole does a good job of keeping your foot on the footbed. Laterally, I had no issues due to the foam that rises along the midfoot to cage you in.

It's a fairly narrow-fitting sneaker despite being a bit long in the forefoot area. Regardless, I had no issue with the fit.
