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.

The Giannis Immortality is a solid performer in the subline of Giannis's Zoom Freak line with Nike. These also provide lateral containment and consistent traction while also feeling light.

The shoe is a super light and responsive, geared toward smaller players. The traction has almost no slips on clean courts, but absorbs dust like a vacuum on moderately dusty courts. The support fits really well with amazing heel support, but be careful with the thin material, as I almost ripped through one of the shoes zion style after only 2 months of using it. A tear by the big toe is common, and is where I have it on my right shoe. Other than that, it's really only worth it when its on sale.

Kinda mid tbh, I expected more about the traction but they will probably get better once a fully break them in so I will give it a 9, cushion is alright, good responsiveness tho, the worst feature in the shoe is definitely the support, the materials are really lightweight and minimal but cheap, I am concern about the durability of the upper but the durability of the traction should be pretty good, overall a solid shoe for guards who are on a budget and want a lightweight, responsive shoe.

Best feature is the support - foot feels very locked in. However the cushion is a bit lacking which is a little disappointing given the bulkiness of the heal. Court feel of the forefoot feels great, but my personal preference would be to have a less bulky heal. And if the heal is bulky, as in this case, would think it would have a little more cushion. Materials are good, especially the soft materials. Also think these are a pretty low profile shoe (again think the heal is a little much)

this is the first budget shoe from the Giannis line. the traction held up pretty well, but it's not the best. The support has never been a problem in the Giannis line. I did experience one problem in the shoe, which was that the materials in the upper tore after just a couple months of playing in them. The cushion was lackluster because it was a budget shoe, but what could you expect? It is a solid performer, but there are so many better options available right now.

The shoes are kinda comfortable. They are kinda narrow (Especially in the toebox) The ankle support isn't good and I got a pretty bad ankle sprain playing in them. They did pick up some dust. If you have a wide feet go up half a size. I went true to size and experience some lateral pain. The shoe causes me blisters. The materials are very breathable. If you have plantar fascitis I don't recommend this shoe. This review was posted after 5 months of constant use.

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 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.

There is solid lateral containment since side-to-side coverage is a focal point for Giannis's playstyle.
