PROS:

  • Super bouncy Zoom cushioning
  • Very well-fitting shoe

CONS:

  • Slight lateral support issues in the forefoot

Summary of 3 Expert Reviews:

The Nike Zoom Rize is a new medium-priced Team model and a takedown version of the more expensive Nike AlphaDunk. The traction works very well on clean courts, but on dusty courts, you will need to wipe from time to time. The huge 10mm Nike Zoom unit in the forefoot is super bouncy and comfortable but doesn't give you a ton of court feel. The materials start off a little stiff, but they provide a lot of lockdown and loosen up quicky. Support is great in the heel and midfoot but multiple reviewers mentioned slight issues on quick lateral cuts. Overall, the Nike Zoom Rize is a very versatile basketball shoe that performs well in all categories.

I would highly recommend the Nike Zoom Rize. I really loved the traction and especially the cushioning - this is the best implementation of Zoom and Phylon ever!

I really enjoyed playing in the Nike Zoom Rize because of the good traction and amazing cushioning. This shoe will work very well for big guys, but for my style of play, the court feel could have been a little better and the shoe was a little too bulky.

Very good groove spacing, and just the right amount of tread depth.

The giant Nike Zoom unit in the forefoot is super bouncy but you do lose a little bit of court feel.

The forefoot Zoom unit reminds me of the Lebron 16 - super bouncy but court feel is not great. The foam in the heel feels great and the heel-to-toe transition is good too.

No heel slippage, great lockdown, but I experienced slight movements on the footbed on super hard cuts.

Deep grooves and hard rubber - outdoor use should be adequate.
