Nike Zoom Freak 4 Review

Pros:
Reliable traction after break-in
Cushion feels springy
Cons:
Torsional support is not the best

Performance of the Nike Zoom Freak 4:

The traction on the Zoom Freak 4 takes time to break in, but once it does, it performs reliably afterwards. The two forefoot Zoom Air units are bouncy but can take a lot of force to feel them. The foam feels springy regardless, though. Material quality is a letdown. Nike didn't use premium materials, but they hold up for performance. One improved feature is the fit. The shoe accommodates more foot shapes and is better for players with slightly-wide feet. Reviewers mentioned the torsional support isn't the best, but it didn't take away from the lockdown and stability of the shoe. The Nike Zoom Freak 4 performs well in all performance basketball categories while being a shoe for price-conscious players.

The Nike Zoom Freak 4 offers a lot of performance for a lower price. The materials aren't premium, and the traction needed a break-in period, but the shoe is a solid all-around performer.

The Nike Zoom Freak 4 is an upgrade from the Zoom Freak 3 in terms of side-to-side stability. It also offers tremendous forefoot bounce because of the Zoom Air units. People who are prone to spraining their ankles might want to look elsewhere.

this shoe is pretty good and is a clear upgrade from the 3. the traction is really good but u have to wipe a few times on dusty courts. cushion is the best it has ever been in the freak line so no matter if you're a heel or forefoot dominant player you are fine. support is great and majorly upgraded. the fit is very wide foot friendly so narrow footers gotta try these in stores. freak 4 > freak 1 > freak 2 > freak 3.

The traction improved a lot over the first few days of play. It performs well on clean courts and doesn't pick up much dust on dirtier courts.

The Zoom Air units on the shoe are thick, which puts your foot high off the ground. It feels springy, but it took me a lot of force to activate the units.

There are two side-by-side independent Zoom Air units in the midsole, which makes the shoe play fast.

The foam has a lot of compressions and provides some rebound. There are also cut-outs of foam to offer more room for the foam to expand. The Zoom units also give the shoe a springy bounce.

The upper reminds me of a 90s sweater material. It includes a lot of mesh and netting, and the materials provide a decent amount of stability.

The quality of the materials is a letdown. It reminds me of the materials used on the PG5, but it still feels supportive for performance purposes.

This shoe will not hold your body weight well after the foam bottoms out, which can cause pain in your legs or back. The shoe is better for lighter players. The support and stability are an improvement overall, though.

The torsional support isn't the best, but I didn't mind it much. I had zero issues with the lateral support and stability, though.
