Nike Precision 5 Review

Pros:
Traction is really good
Quality materials that get the job done
Cons:
Not the best shoe for impact protection
Lack of tech

Performance of the Nike Precision 5:

The Nike Precision 5 simply gets the job done at this price point. All of the reviewers found the traction to be excellent. The shoe performed very well on clean courts and despite needing some wiping on dusty courts, the traction still performed decently. Materials feel nice and reviewers agree that they get the job done, especially at this price point. The fit is fairly snug with very little dead space in the toe box area and should be good for players that enjoy a snug fit. The main downside of the shoe is that it offers very little in terms of cushioning and impact protection. However, it does provide a decent amount of court feel. Overall, the shoe is an excellent affordable option for those who are looking for great traction, low to the ground court feel, and can live with the lack of impact protection.

For $70 retail, this is a banger of a shoe. If you are looking for impact protection, this shoe isn't for you. But everything else is really nice. The Nike Precision 5 is a great to shoe to play in and I honestly can't believe that it's only $70.

If the Precision 5 was $120, I'd still recommend it because it performs extremely well. The only thing that's lacking is the cushion - and it's not that bad.

One of the best pair of basketball shoes I have owned. I bought these on a whim and now I own 3 pairs of them.

The modified herringbone traction really bites on clean courts. On dustier courts, the occasional wipe may be needed, but traction will still be very solid. Overall, extremely nice.

Very solid and consistent bite with only a tiny bit of sliding on hard lateral movements. On dusty courts, frequent wiping was needed, but the bite is still very good with wiping.

Cushioning is on the firmer side of things but feels good for the price. Provides a good amount of court feel in the forefoot with a tiny bit of bounce in the heel.

There's a little bit of compression in the heel, but the forefoot cushion is pretty stiff. Not the best impact protection, but does provide a decent amount of court feel.

The shoe features a fairly thick textile upper that feels pretty good to the touch. Has a bit of a thin tongue, but gets the job done for performance. Overall, it's really nice for the price point.

Materials are definitely my favorite part of the shoe. They have a very nice, soft textile material. I love it - very minimal, but very comfortable.

No issues with the support. The internal heel counter and very nice heel sculpting help with keeping you locked in. Midsole wraps onto the upper of the shoe, preventing you from slipping off the footbed.

Support and lockdown are good. I had no issues with lateral containment. Foam comes up on sidewall to help with containment and the shoe has a very good outrigger.

Traction should be fine, but durability in high wear areas did not hold up well at all. Should be ok for the price, but don't expect it to last too long.

You might want to go up half a size if you have a wide foot or if you like a roomier fit in your shoe.
