Performance of the Nike Zoom Live 2017:

The Nike Zoom Live is the successor to the Nike Hyperlive and, at a retail price of only $100, it is one of Nike's most affordable shoes. Even though the price is really cheap, the Nike Zoom Live outperforms a lot of the more expensive signature models. This shoe concentrates on the basics and gets them right: Good traction that works even on dusty courts, comfortable Zoom Air cushioning in the forefoot, combined with a well-fitting and supportive upper. If you are looking for an affordable low-top for guards, then you can't go wrong with this shoe!

Taking the $100 price tag out of the equation, the Nike Zoom Live 2017 stands up against Nike’s higher priced models and outshines them. If you’re a fan of low tops then you’ll likely be a fan of these.

A really nice shoe, I enjoyed playing in it a lot. This should have been the Kyrie 3. Guards - you will love it!

The traction straight up kills it on most courts and conditions without issue.

Even on dusty courts, the traction is decent. On a clean court, it's really, really good.

When surrounded with the right kind of Phylon, Zoom Air thrives — and that’s exactly what we have here.

Mesh, nylon, and a bit of fuse in high-wear areas. Simple, comfortable, and straight to the point.

The material is really soft and feels like a woven textile upper. No break-in time required.

Outdoor players might not receive long-lasting traction because the rubber is a bit soft.

Rubber is hard and pretty thick, so might work outdoors.

Wide footers might be fine going true to size once the upper breaks in.
