Nike Giannis Immortality Review

Pros:
Traction performed well.
Responsive and lightweight on foot.
Cons:
Support is inconsistent.
Materials could perform better.

Performance of the Nike Giannis Immortality:

Most reviewers felt that the traction on the Nike Giannis Immortality performed great. The rubber compound and the deep grooves on the pattern gripped nicely on indoor courts and didn't pick up too much dust on dirtier courts. The full-length Phylon cushion consistently surprised reviewers. The Phylon is firm but not as firm as the cushion found in other budget models. It has a slight amount of impact protection as well. Materials feel nice on foot, but the performance was inconsistent among reviewers. Reviewers also found the support and lockdown to be a bit inconsistent. The Immortality is lacking in heel padding, and the forefoot containment can be spotty at times. At the end of the day, the Nike Giannis Immortality is a budget-friendly model that performs quite well when taking the price into consideration.

The Nike Giannis Immortality is one of the best signature athlete budget models available. It performs just as well as some signature models despite lacking the same tech that they feature. Definitely a great bang for your buck type of shoe.

When you're playing in the Giannis Immortality, you feel very light and really quick. The traction is amazing, and the cushion is responsive. Support could've been a bit better, but it wasn't a deal-breaker. I really like this shoe.

The Nike Giannis Immortality is a pretty decent budget model. However, there are other shoes at the price point that do outperform the shoe. The cushion and materials feel nice, but I did have issues with support.

No surprise that herringbone traction gets the job done. The Immortality performed very well. Wiping wasn't needed because of the deep grooves in the traction pattern.

The traction is top-tier. It's one of the best patterns that you can get right now. The bite is insane on clean courts, and it wasn't picking up much dust on dirtier courts.

The traction is just ok despite being herringbone. It performs well on clean courts, but on your average court, you'll find yourself sliding quite a bit.

Being a budget option, the cushion used is just Phylon. Regardless, it performs decent enough, especially after a short break-in period.

There's nothing special in terms of the tech used for the cushion. It's low to the ground and still provides impact protection.

The Giannis Immortality features a full-length Phylon cushion that's just okay. It's more on the firmer side, but you'll still get some impact protection.

Even though the materials are comfortable, they are also thin. Lots of mesh and synthetics were used on this model.

The textile mesh is thin, but I love the way it feels for the price. However, the synthetic materials used towards the back half of the shoe aren't the best.

The mesh material feels nice to the touch, but the performance is a bit lacklustre.

The curved edge at the back of the shoe helps with rolling into your stride, but it also makes the shoe feel a bit wobbly. At the front of the shoe, the outrigger is amazing.

The torsional support isn't the best. The lateral containment wasn't bad, and the shoe did its job stability-wise.

There's not enough heel padding in the back of the shoe, which caused heel slippage. I also felt my foot sliding off the footbed, but the shoe does have a wide base and a decent outrigger.

They fit snug to start off but loosen up after a few hours played.

It fits slightly long, and the materials lie nicely on the top of the foot.

The rubber is fairly hard, the grooves are deep, and the price is low. It's a pretty good outdoor option.

It should be fine for most, but if you have wider feet, you may want to go up half a size.
