With school over for most of the world and basketball season starting locally, Nike’s releasing another pair that’ll work both indoors and out. The Nike Air Max Dominate XD, a low profile lightweight hoop shoe with great cushioning and impact absorption. The shoe reminds me of cross between a Huarache (with the perforations and pattern on the upper) and whatever Steve Nash wore the past couple of years. Much like a lot of the 90s hoop shoes, the Max Dominate uses a full mesh inner sleeve for a better fit while keeping the shoe breathable.
The Air Max Dominate uses a modified herringbone pattern with their Wiper Blade technology for the outsole, to solve any traction and stability issues you might encounter on any surface. The shoe also uses a Phylon injected midsole and a Max Air unit at the heel to make each sprint on the hard court much more comfortable.
Drop by your favorite Nike store or retailer for the two colorways seen here. The Nike Air Max Dominate XD retails for 4,295 php.
