Nike Giannis Immortality 2 Review

Pros:
Traction performs well on clean courts
Cushion is responsive
Cons:
Dust can cause slight sliding
Not much impact protection

Performance of the Nike Giannis Immortality 2:

Giannis's latest budget shoe, the Nike Giannis Immortality 2, has similar traction to its predecessor. The performance is on par as well. The cushioning can be divisive, depending on your preferences. There is no impact protection, but it offers plenty of responsiveness and court feel. Reviewers had split opinions on the materials. Some called them cheap, and others said they were an upgrade from last year. All agreed the materials don't affect the performance, though. The support and lockdown features are basic but get the job done. The Nike Giannis Immortality 2 is a slightly above-average performance shoe but excels in the budget category.

The Nike Giannis Immortality 2 is a solid shoe for the price. The materials are the best part of the shoe, and the support is there, too.

The Nike Giannis Immortality 2 is a step back from the original. I had fit issues caused by the materials. The traction performed well after breaking it in, and the cushioning is responsive, though.
 More details
The Nike Giannis Immortality 2 is a solid budget offering, but it doesn't do much to differentiate itself from last year's Immortality 1. It has the traction, fit, and support needed for most guards on a budget.
 More details
The Nike Giannis Immortality is an above-average performer but remains a very good budget option. The traction and responsive cushion make it a solid pick for smaller, quicker players.

A very good shoe minimal and lightweight.It is a must for point guards and for other players who need a lightweight and responsive shoe.I would not recommend it for big guys who need support.Overall it was a great shoe and will be in my rotation.

If you play on clean courts, you won't have any problems with traction. I did sometimes slide on dusty courts, though.

The traction pattern is the same as the first shoe, and it took some time to break in. Once broken in, it performed well. I would place it just below top-tier.

The traction on this year's shoe is exactly the same as last year's. The performance is solid.
 More details
I had zero issues with the traction on clean courts, but it does need wiping in dusty conditions.

The Immortality 2's engineered mesh feels like an improvement compared to last year's shoe.

The materials are softer but less supportive. It's thin and minimal, though. Durability could be an issue.
 More details
The materials are cheap but functional. The shoe is lightweight, which is a plus.
 More details
A lightweight mesh and fuse overlays comprise most of the shoe, and there's also a lot of synthetic leather on the tongue and heel portions of the shoe.

I didn't have any issues with the support in this shoe. My ankle felt contained, and my feet weren't sliding.

My foot stretched against the materials during play. Lateral containment was solid, but the roomy fit and materials meant my foot was not snug on the footbed. Lateral stability was not an issue, though.
 More details
The support features keep you locked down and provide a wide base to keep you centered.

The upper of the shoe keeps your foot locked down to the footbed, while the base and outrigger keep you centered.

There's some length at the end of the shoe, and the materials stretch to make the toe box roomy. I liked the fit right out of the box, but the more I played in them, the more the fit stretched.

It fits like a glove. In the beginning, the fit is snug, but it'll break in the more you play.

The shoe fits like a glove and conforms to your foot nicely.
