Nike Zoom Live 2017 Review

Pros:
Great bang for the buck
Good all-around performer
Cons:
Not ideal for big guys

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!

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

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.

The shoe itself is pretty abnormal in my opinion. The traction is really weird but it works pretty nicely but there might be dust problems often. Cushion ain't too bad. The support feels alright. The materials feels pretty cheap as the shoe itself isn't expensive. For outdoor use, it's alright. The traction rubber isn't too hard or too soft so the shoe would be alright to play with outside. This shoes are good for wide feet too.

Even on dusty courts, the traction is decent. On a clean court, it's really, really good.
 More details
The traction straight up kills it on most courts and conditions without issue.

I love the feeling of the top-loaded Zoom unit in the forefoot.

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

The material is really soft and feels like a woven textile upper. No break-in time required.
 More details
Mesh, nylon, and a bit of fuse in high-wear areas. Simple, comfortable, and straight to the point.

Rubber is hard and pretty thick, so might work outdoors.
 More details
Outdoor players might not receive long-lasting traction because the rubber is a bit soft.
