Nike Zoom Ultraflight “Supersonics Home” PE for Gary Payton

September 30th, 2014 by | No comments

nike zoom ultraflight gary payton pe 01 Nike Zoom Ultraflight Supersonics Home PE for Gary Payton

Nike Basketball’s dominance today is proclaimed with three of the biggest names in basketball on their roster in LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Kobe Bryant. Keeping up with the Swoosh in this category is, as you’d imagine, a difficult task, but back in the early 2000s, Nike’s reign wasn’t as clear-cut. That doesn’t mean that the sneakers they were doling out weren’t as technologically advanced at the time, or rooted in outlandish inspirations. For 2003′s Nike Zoom Ultraflight, designers Aaron Cooper and Eric Avar teamed up to create a near-sequel to the Hyperflight, adding a premium leather upper and a translucent shell to showcase the inner-workings. Today we get a view of a rare PE for noneother than Gary Payton. While he wasn’t wearing his Glove signature towards the end of his tenure in Seattle, he was gifted this Ultraflight in a mean green and yellow before being traded off to Milwaukee. What do you think? Hit the click for more images and grab the pair from foamkicks on eBay.

Gary Payton’s signature shoe is about to get its first retro treatment, but if you’ve been reading Sneaker News enough to keep up with the Air Zoom Flight, you might already know that ‘The Glove’ moved on to Jordan Brand toward the end of his NBA career.  Here’s an Air Jordan XII PE that could have been a home colorway for each of the three teams with whom he reached the NBA Finals.  The white/yellow combo was crafted during Payton’s season with the Los Angeles Lakers.  He’ll be officially inducted into the Hall of Fame this fall, and you can commemorate one of the great careers with this game-worn player exclusive available for a short time from kick_culture on eBay.

With Gary Payton’s name on deck to be the next household name in Retro kicks, why not take a look back at some of the highlights of his sneaker career? “The Glove” is known for his short yet influential stint with Nike in the late-90s and early-2000s, but his time as a Jordan Brand athlete is generally overlooked, although we do show an occasional GP PE from time to time. This Air Jordan XIX was made for Payton while he was with the Lakers (the team that was supposed to win the Title) and intended to be an All-Star PE, but Payton was left out of the 2004 team. Are you excited for the comeback of “The Glove” signature line? Let us know in the comments area and check out this rare PE from 4-quarters on eBay.

With the return of the Kamikaze II coming in just a couple of weeks and the “Glove” confirmed a return, memories of 90′s basketball and the exciting duo known as “Kemp and Payton” keep rising up. With that in mind, let’s take a look back at one of Payton’s more interesting eras of NBA play – his short stint with the Boston Celtics; during that time, GP was indeed a Jordan Brand athlete, with these great Player Exclusive colorways being composed just for the loud-mouthed point guard to wear during games like this Air Jordan XIX (and we’ve already shown you the ‘Away’ version). Check out this crisp new DS pair below and peep the asking price from dependablejay on eBay.
