Dwyane Wade x Mission Court Grip
“Today is the day. You will no longer slip on a basketball court.”
It’s a strong statement, especially for those of us who’ve played on the slipperiest of tile floors, but when someone with the kind of jaw-dropping, leave-you-in-the-dust quickness as Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade says something helps him “move with incredible confidence,” it’s worth examining. Maybe D-Wade had enough of LeBron James’ chalk routine and decided to outdo him when it comes to pre-game feel improvements, but it’s more likely given the NBA’s logo appearing on the bottle, that Mission’s new Court Grip traction enhancer is the real deal. If Wade is right and this Foot Locker-exclusive product really does make the ground beneath you more stable, would you be willing to give it a go? Click through to see a couple of videos starring Agent D3 himself and let us know what works best for keeping your basketball kicks from slippin’.
Helpful information. Lucky me I discovered your website unintentionally, and I am shocked why this coincidence didn't happened in advance! I bookmarked it.
To the first few comment's on cheating. The game has evolved & technology has come a long way. Do you complane about air bubbles that improve comfort & combat muscle fatigue. What about man made materials that make shoe's lighter & you quicker. Is it cheating when you use adhesive powder to improve hand grip. That's just a few "b-ball" example's. Compared to what athlete's in all sport's had several decade's ago, it could all be considered cheating now a day's. I guess they should make sports less entertaining & stop developing everything that makes people able to do extraodinary things, whether your the "average joe" or a pro. Maybe you get a advantage,(that's the point), but last time I checked...you compete by putting the time, blood, sweat & tear's before the "main event" & hopefully get result's. Grip on a dirty floor!!! What's not to like? This court grip stuff is convient & practical. There's nothing radical or revolutionary about it to the point where I'd say, you'd win & I'd lose becasue you have it & I don't or vice versa. <Just player's opinon>
How? Some people in the NBA wear shoes that are lighter. Is that cheating? Some people wear shoes with better traction? Is that cheating?
Au contraire mon frere, It IS 'cheating' just like the NFL does allow gloves but DOESN'T allow tacky stickum on them. Remember (but probably not) when Barry Sanders was accused of having that slippery spray covering on his jersey because that dude was a pain to tackle. That's not allowed, either. So, YES, this is cheating. The NBA should regulate shoes and make sure no advantage is gained by having other chemicals (that's what it is) applied to the soles just like the NBA disallowed those jumping spring shoes to gain a competitive advantage.
Um, doesn't the competition have the same advantage? They can go out and easily pick up a bottle just like me. My only concern is this. In school we used to use hair spray and that stuff was awesome for the first 2 minutes and then anything that on the floor ultimately was stuck to your shoe for the rest of the game. Needless to say I used it one time and never again after that.
