A lot of sports talk shows have focused on Zion Williamson. Due to a chronic foot injury, he hasn’t played a single game this season, most likely a similar injury that forced Yao Ming to retire early in his prime. Given that Zion is still in his early twenties, I hope this isn’t the case. Many in the media have blamed Zion’s ailments on his big frame and the punishment it endures when he erupts for stunning athletic plays, particularly his spellbinding dunks. He recently shared a brief video of himself doing a between-the-legs slam that went viral on social media and in the national sports media.

He appears to have been dunking in the second version of his signature sneakers upon closer inspection. And I believe the rumors were confirmed when several sneaker blogs and social media outlets exploded with leaked photographs of what appears to be the Air Jordan Zion 2. What are your opinions on the shoe?

The silhouette reminds me a lot of the Nike Lebron 11,  a shoe that caused King James a bit of problems. I don’t know if you recall Lebron slipping and leaving a big mark on the floor with Lebron 11 when he was still a member of the heat; he went on to win a second consecutive championship. I’m not sure if it was because of the shoes or not but many people in the media made a big deal about it at the time. The Air Jordan Zion 2 features a large midfoot strap that seems to be necessary given Zion’s size 18 feet. Perforations cover both the heel and forefoot area ( most likely for ventilation purposes). Nike hasn’t said anything about the cushioning technology, ankle protection and stability of the shoe but I can guarantee that it was at the forefront of the engineering of the shoe. Perforations cover both the heel and forefoot area ( most likely for ventilation purposes). Both the heel and forefoot have perforations ( most likely for ventilation purposes). Nike hasn’t stated anything about the shoe’s cushioning technology, ankle protection, or stability, but I’m confident that it was prioritized during its development given Zion’s nagging injury.

Could the second iteration of the Zion’s line be the one to take it to new heights? Before we even consider any form of sales’ boom in both the retail and resale markets, the man must first be healthy. However, based on the initial replies I’ve seen on social media, the Jordan Zion 2 has received a lot of gold stars, suggesting that this could help revitalize basketball shoes to some level. Only time will tell if this is true. One thing is certain: everything has been planned to generate big sales for this sneaker; the story behind it will be incredible, since it will cover all of Zion’s pivotal moments throughout his first two years with the struggling Pelicans. Talking about the Pelicans, I’ll encourage you to watch the video below courtesy of Bball breakdown in which Coach Nick talks about how the arrival of CJ McCollum has galvanized New Orleans’ offense
