Nikola Jokic’s preferred sneaker in the 2020-21 NBA season is the Nike Zoom Rize 2.
As the name suggests, this is the sequel shoe to the Zoom Rize 1 that Jokic wore last year. The main attraction in the Zoom Rize 2 is the large Zoom Air unit in the forefoot. This bouncy unit provides tons of energy return when running and landing. The fabric upper is coated with a textured print for added durability. The traction pattern is inspired by the all-time classic Nike Kobe 9, which was as grippy as can be on the hardwood.
This sneaker is notable for featuring Nikola’s new Joker logo with Nike, with the emblem on the tongue of Jokic’s PEs.
