Hooping for a prominent Nike school like Duke University can have its perks. Case in point are the exclusive Blue Devil colorways of signature swoosh sneakers.
For a few games in 2019, Zion Williamson rocked the Nike LeBron 16. This sneaker utilized some of the best Nike technologies at the time. Zoom Air sections are featured at the entire length of the shoe, providing a bounce no matter how you step and land. A “BattleKnit” upper had instant step-in comfort, while still being durable for the rigors of the game.
Despite being compared to the King James for his freakish athleticism, Zion opted for more guard sneakers over LeBrons in his collegiate career. This includes the Kyrie 4 and PG 2.5. Despite this, Zion still brought the highlights like his freakish 3-point block against Virginia (which you can view in Zion’s locker.)
