Five decades is, obviously, a long time. When Nike first broke into the basketball business, there was no such thing as a three point shot, the slam dunk was, professionally a parlor trick, and flat out illegal in the NCAA, and the Milwaukee Bucks’ dominating center had only just recently changed his name to Kareem. Oh, right; the apex of basketball footwear technology was a certain canvas and rubber model.
The 5 Decades of Basketball pack is a journey through Nike’s revolutionary approach to performance technology and style, from the 1970s through today. Five silhouettes that highlight Nike design milestones, the Blazer, Air Force 1, Air Foamposite, Air Zoom Generation, and the brand new Zoom Bonafide, celebrate this milestone in premium form.
Quality stitched, vachetta leather featuring rose gold hardware bring a genuine luxury feel to the innovations, from the herringbone sole of the original Blazer, to the Air cushioning system, to breathable Flyknit, that have made the Swoosh synonymous with basketball.
