Next week marks the start of Nike’s six-week summer basketball tournament featuring the best high school hoopers from New York City’s various boroughs. Divided into six area-based teams; Dyckman, Gersh, West 4th, Watson, Lincoln Park and Tristate, the grassroots initiative will be headlined by The Swooshes’ on-court toolings dressed in connective thematic colorways.
Introduced via the Nike KD 16, the Nike Zoom GT Cut 2 recently surfaced as the next basketball silhouette in the upcoming collection to assume the city-wide aesthetic. Tonal red hues seem to be the connective theme for the 2023 tournament as a watermelon-reminiscent tint cures the near entirety of the pair’s upper. Faint hits of neon compliment the titular ensemble by ascertaining the tucked away lace loops in seldom while crisp white shades assume the silhouette’s mainstay contrasts along the Zoom Air midsole, mid-foot Swoosh, collar lining and “NY vs. NY” tongue tab.
The Nike Zoom GT Cut 2 “NY vs. NY” is slated to release for a retail price of $170. You can enjoy an official look at the pair below as we await further drop details in the meantime.
For more basketball-ready models, the Jordan Luka 2 was recently revealed including details surrounding its revitalized cushioning system.
