In addition to all of the [Nike All-Star Footwear that we previewed last week], Nike created an All-Star Nike Foamposite Lite PE for Amare Stoudemire and an All-Star Nike Spot Up PE for Dirk Nowitzki. The sneakers feature a variety of tributes to Phoenix and the “land of the rising sun” including fading patterns to represent the sunrise, Native American font and a variety of Arizona graphic attributes.
More Info and Pics After the Break
Nike Foamposite Lite
The original Nike Foamposite was introduced in the late ‘90s. This classic has been updated and remains in line with Nike basketball’s drive for superior, lightweight innovation. The Nike Foamposite Lite features 5mm of total foam thickness to reduce weight and rigidity while maintaining comfort in the mid-sole. A polyurethane upper with a synthetic covering wraps the internal mesh inner sleeve for comfort and a secure fit. A Nike Zoom unit is designed into the heel for a low-profile and super-responsive cushioning.
Nike Air Max Spot Up
Inspired by Dirk Nowitzki, the Nike Air Max Spot Up basketball shoe is designed to allow powerful performance in the low post. The upper is crafted using a combination of synthetic materials for stability and support, while the full-length Phylon mid-sole offers a smooth, cushioned ride. The solid rubber outsole provides dependable traction on the court.
