Nike Zoom Shift Review

Pros:
Fair price
Decent materials
Cons:
Inconsistent traction
Long break-in period

Performance of the Nike Zoom Shift:

The Zoom Shift is a well-performing budget model that features a Zoom unit in the forefront and a lightweight mesh upper. The traction is a little inconsistent and doesn't work very well on dusty courts - be prepared to wipe a lot. The fit is very narrow and takes an extended break-in period before getting softer and more comfortable. Overall, the Nike Zoom Shift is a good budget option for guards.

This shoe is pretty nice and works well for guards who need a responsive shoe. Feels a little like a low-top Kyrie 2 with nicer materials and worse traction.

Overall this is a solid shoe that has signature model-like qualities at a retail price of $100 - you can't really beat that!

While the Nike Zoom Shift is aesthetically pleasing, the inconsistent traction and the brick-like cushion makes the shoe very unpleasant on-court.

Once they are broken in the cushion feels very nice. I really like the setup of Phylon foam with a Zoom unit in the forefoot.
