Nike Basketball Spring 2013 Preview
Jordan Brand teased its biggest release for next spring with a mysterious shot of the Air Jordan 2013, but that tiny glimpse suggests quite a bit about what to expect from next year’s flagship. Over in the Nike Basketball camp, the Zoom Kobe 7 has been a hit since the ‘Grinch’ made Christmas 2011 the NBA’s most successful yet, so we also have a frame into which the new Nike Zoom Kobe VII Point 5 can fit neatly. This apparent ZK7 takedown doesn’t seem to use any Flywire or offer the kind of graphic capabilities as its TPU-uppered big brother, but the impact of this now familiar silhouette in a more traditional build is just as striking and a further testament to the depth of Eric Avar’s ‘systemic’ approach.
LeBron’s Nike Air Max Ambassador V appears in two colorways and is joined by another that might end up being titled Nike Ambassador Point 5 (another affordably priced takedown). The new Nike Zoom Hyperdisrupter makes its first appearance and we get a look at the Flwire pattern on the Nike Lunar Hyperdunk+ Low, while another look at the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2012 Point 5 reveals its build as in line with the other slightly less tech heavy ‘Point 5′ designs instead of the embedded Flywire continuation we expected from the early catalog images. Inspect each of these models after the jump, let us know what you think about Q1 ’13 so far and stick with Sneaker News for all the spring 2013 release dates. Photos: hupu
