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.

After the break-in period, the traction got really, really good, even on dustier courts.

Really, really good on clean courts, okay on dusty courts, but you will need to wipe.

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.

The materials are very supportive but lateral support in the forefoot could be better.

A little snug in the beginning but as a slightly wide-footer, I had no issues at all after the break-in period.
