Here are a few reasons why the Nike Zoom Run The One is a top pick if you’re looking for basketball shoes. It’s priced at $100, it’s got that Zoom-cushioned performance you’ve come to know and love, the low-cut construction has that flexibility to be perfect for backcourt ballers, and it’s being worn by a number of NBA players so you know it’s got the goods. Behind the design of this rising star in the Basketball category is Tony Hardman, a relative newcomer to the Nike Basketball design team; he focused on the skillset of dynamic guards like James Harden, and noted that “as we observe the DNA of traditional point guards evolve, we evolve the modern basketball shoe – and it no longer has to be a bulky high-top.” This goes to show that Hardman and Nike believe in and stand behind their direction of basketball shoes to be lower-cut, so expect a lot of this style from Hardman and the Nike Basketball team. Get a detailed look at this upcoming Red/Volt James Harden PE colorway, which is set for a release on November 15th, and stay tuned for the latest on the Zoom Run The One and Hardman’s upcoming work in the category.
