Nike Zoom Rize Review

Pros:
Super bouncy Zoom cushioning
Very well-fitting shoe
Cons:
Slight lateral support issues in the forefoot

Performance of the Nike Zoom Rize:

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. The 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 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.

These are some of my favorite shoes to play in. Great balance in the heel cushioning with a very springy forefoot zoom. Traction takes a bit to break in but once it does it’s superb. I had some rubbing sometimes in the heel, but had to mess around with the lacing a bit and there wasn’t a problem. These are really good outdoors too, but they don’t last as long as I would like.

This shoe surprised me. This shoe is great at everything. This is one of the most versatile shoes I have ever had. Tacky grip, pillowy cushion setup, reliable support, great fit, and soft materials, this shoe is worth your money. It is a little bit heavy, so guards beware, but overall amazing shoe

These are the best basketball shoes I've ever had. Great traction, great fit, good support, very durable. I've had them for 3 years (!!!) and the shoes are still in a good shape except the pattern at the bottom has worn out now. I would definitely buy them again

Amazing shoe. The zoom air cushioning is amazing and I like how they added the grip at the inner side of the shoe.

There is a Zoom unit in the forefoot area that is encased in an injected Phylon carrier. The shoe becomes bouncier over time as the cushion breaks in. As always Zoom provides plenty of impact protection.

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.

The upper is very supportive from the forefoot all the way back to the ankle area. The lateral outrigger and wide base of the outsole also do a great job of providing stability.
