It’s simple: less weight plus more responsiveness equals a greater return on your energy. With cushioning that responds with every step, the Nike Zoom Rize 2 combines lightweight, extra-durable materials to help you outlast your opponents all season long. Extra Responsive A large Zoom Air unit in the heel is thicker than the previous version, giving more energy back. The extra volume, plus an outsole groove just behind the toes, allows the unit to compress and absorb force during play. Lightweight and Durable Thin, lightweight fabric material in the upper is coated with a textured print that helps resist abrasion over a long season. Fluid Transitions Inspired by the Kobe 9, the outsole tread has a wavy, circular pattern. It helps give you the traction to start, stop and cut as needed. The outsole is split into sections that are connected with a molded plastic piece. This keeps the shoe stable while helping to reduce overall weight. The padded collar and tongue provide a secure, comfortable fit around the ankle and over the top of your foot. Flywire cables help pull the material down over your foot when you lace up.
