Summary of 3 Expert Reviews:

The Nike Zoom Rev is one of Nike's more affordable models at a list price of $110. The upper is made of very comfortable mesh materials that provide a great 1:1 fit. Nike Zoom in the forefoot delivers very responsive cushioning and the Phylon in the heel offers a lot of impact protection. Unfortunately, the traction is very inconsistent. Especially on dusty courts, you will need to wipe a lot. However, if you only play on pristine hardwood courts, and you are looking for a comfortable shoe with solid overall performance, the Nike Zoom Rev 17 might be for you!

As a guard, I don't like playing in these very much. Slightly bulky, and higher off the ground than I prefer. It's definitely a decent shoe, but it just wasn't for me.

If you’re looking for a cloud-like ride, with great materials and a glove-like fit, the Zoom Rev ’17 is going to get the job done really well.

The Zoom Rev 17 is an extremely solid option for someone looking for quickness, forefoot cushioning while still riding low, and a great fit.

Traction is okay, but I would have liked a little more bite.

On clean floors, the traction is great of course, but if your floor has any dust whatsoever, you’re going to find yourself wiping quite a bit.

Tricky, tricky traction. Very good on lateral moves, inconsistent on straight-line starts and stops.

Impact protection is nice, responsiveness is good, but I would like a lower ride.

Responsive Nike Zoom Air in the forefoot and surprisingly soft Phylon in the heel.

The Zoom Unit in the forefoot is very responsive, Phylon in the heel works very well too.

This is easily the Zoom Rev’s best category. The soft mesh upper is very comfortable.

Firm material and great lockdown but ankle protection could need improvement.

The fit is dead-on. The forefoot was wrapped like a second skin.

Wide-footers may find the midfoot to be a little tight.

We recommend you go true to size and allow the materials to break in.
