The sneakers that Nikola Jokic started rocking in the 2021-22 NBA season is the Nike G.T. Jump.
These shoes are one of three in the Nike G.T. series, with those letters standing for “Greater Than.” In this case, the G.T. Jump is supposed to help you be “Greater Than” others at jumping. While this doesn’t fit the game of Nikola Jokic, the shoes do have added comfort for big men. The G.T. Jump utilizes a Zoom Air Strobel, with the bouncy tech stitched directly to the upper under the insole. Underneath this strobel is even more Zoom Air, with large units in the heel and forefoot wedged in a Pebax jump plate for support. This adds to being the most responsive and bouncy experience ever seen in a Nike Basketball sneaker.
Nikola Jokic’s Nike G.T. Jump is scheduled to release in late 2021.
