What is Nike React?

Lifestyle, Sports

Nike React is part of Nike’s cushioning revolution, redefining what’s possible with foam and other cushioning platforms — such as Nike Air VaporMax and Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% featuring ZoomX — to deliver options for every athlete.

Foam can be lightweight. Or it can be resilient. But usually it can’t be both of these things and durable. And that hurdle was the impetus for Nike’s innovation teams, including cushioning experts and chemical engineers, to come together to develop a foam that could offer not just two of those benefits, but all three at once. The result is Nike React, Nike’s latest cushioning innovation and a significant breakthrough in footwear foam.

Lifestyle, Sports

Many have questioned Kevin Durant’s tenacity, leadership and winning ways. One thing that can’t be debated: he’s a world champ.

Durant finally won his first NBA title after the Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5. KD bagged Finals MVP after averaging 35.2 points, 8.4 rebounds and 5.4 assists to lead the Dubs to their second title in three years.

Here’s a look at Nike Basketball’s new KD spot, “Debate This,” timed to Game Five’s buzzer.

Ten years ago this month, Nike signed Kevin Durant and the skinny teenager almost immediately received his first signature shoe. A decade later, the risk has paid off with Durant and Nike designer Leo Chang writing a new playbook for developing a signature basketball line with authentic innovation and inspirations matching the athlete’s own trajectory.

Within Durant’s course is a consistent, subtle refinement of pure basketball efficiencies and mechanics. This same path is mirrored in progression from the KD9 to the KD10. For one, the Flyknit construction is the best yet on a basketball shoe — engineered precisely for flexibility, breathability and support just where needed.

Filipino culture is rich in myth and magic. Even until today, many Filipinos believe in charms, amulets and talismans that offer good fortune, protection and sometimes, superhuman strength.

This Pinoy belief in spirit and divine power inspired Nike to create a limited edition LeBron 14 signature shoe, called Agimat. The LeBron 14 is the latest in LeBron James’ signature basketball shoe line, which features a midsole cushioning system that makes it not just the sleekest but also fastest LeBron shoe to date.

What’s up? I’m Jason, an avid fan of the NBA. I’ve been a fan since MJ’s 97-98 Bulls, just when I started dribbling a basketball. It had always been a dream to watch a live NBA game. But people keep saying it’s too expensive. But how much is it really?

Everyone wants to know the price so might as well start with it. I paid $295 for a seat to make that dream a reality.
