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.

20 Years Of Nike Basketball Design: Zoom Ultraflight (2003)

nike zoom ultraflight 2003 0 20 Years Of Nike Basketball Design: Zoom Ultraflight (2003)

Building off the successful Zoom platform of 2001′s Hyperflight, Aaron Cooper and Eric Avar set out to re-create the Hyperflight’s performance while incorporating an aesthetic element of “half tradition, half amazing”. Thus came the Nike Zoom Ultraflight in 2003, which seamlessly combined the luxurious feel of premium leather with a tech-driven translucent shell that exposed all the inner workings of the shoe – an idea form when Cooper and Avar visited a sporting goods store in New York City. This created the task of building a styish inner bootie now that the inner elements were completely exposed, and the finish product, of course, was another game-changer in Nike Basketball history. More of 2003′s Nike Zoom Ultraflight below, so take a look and read up on all of Nike Basketball: 1992-2012 if you need to catch up.
