The Dallas Mavericks are currently in fifth place in the Western Conference with a record of seven wins and four loses, but Luka Dončić has had a great start to the 2021-22 NBA season. Having recently made headlines for banking a spectacular three-point shot in the final moments of a meeting with the Boston Celtics, the Slovenia-native has just added another tally to his roster of accolades via the Jordan Zoom Separate, an all-new basketball sneaker inspired by his step-back shot.
While it’s unlikely that Doncic will replace the Air Jordan 36 with the newly-surfaced silhouette, the Zoom Air-cushioned proposition suggests that the 22-year-old is top-of-mind for the Brand Jordan design team. With a low-top height, the Jordan Zoom Separate delivers a mix of synthetic and textile materials across its upper, with the design resembling high fashion takes on sportswear. A one-piece tongue and fit band-supported lacing system injects a zero-distraction fit and side-to-side stability, which are crucial in cutting. Yet, the sneaker’s most important feature is arguably the cushioning system. A Zoom Air unit is positioned at the center of the foot, and is semi-exposed at the midsole and outsole. Two types of foams are used in the pair, with a firmer solution landing along the outside of the foot. Jordan Brand’s mix proffers an optimal ride on any court, but is particularly ideal for outside ones.
No word on a stateside Nike.com release date has been disclosed by the brand, but that’s likely to change as the 2021-22 NBA season inches closer to its mid-point. In the meantime, enjoy official images of the pair here below, and head over to Nikestore JP to secure the shoes now.
