Aaron Addison Gordon is an American professional basketball player. He plays for Orlando Magic of the NBA. He played college basketball for the University of Arizona for one year.
Let’s look at the shoes he wears.
Nike Men’s Zoom Hyperrev 2016
Traction: this is the best feature of this shoe. The multi-directional diamond-shaped pattern grips the floor perfectly. The texture of the outsole rubber is neither hard nor soft. It just has the right texture to make slip-resistant. The shoe is perfect for both indoors and outdoors. The shoe is easy to clean once it picks up dust. But for the outsole to last long, indoor use is preferable.
Cushion: this shoe uses Zoom Air in the heel and forefoot. The insole is slightly thick for added comfort.
Materials: this shoe has a full length inner sleeve which fits like a sock. The Velcro strap has a fuse overlay shell. The strap locks down the midfoot. The midsole is made of phylon which offers a lightweight feel. The back of the shoe features a rubber molded TPU heel counter which provides extra lockdown.
Fit: the fit is true to size but it is a bit tricky getting the foot in the shoe. But once done a few times it becomes easier. It can also prove difficult wearing this shoe with an ankle strap. The Velcro strap locks down the foot although it comes loose sometimes while playing.
Support: the design of the shoe and the overlay contribute largely to the shoe’s support. The diamond-shaped pattern provides support moves such as hard cuts and cross-overs. The lateral side features an outrigger which adds stability. The laces and Velcro strap also add support.
- Perfect traction
- Great cushioning
- Great support
- Can’t be worn with an ankle brace
- Trick to get the foot in
This is a great shoe. It is lightweight, fits well, and provides great support. The only con is noticed was that the Velcro strap got loose whole playing.
