The new Nike Basketball Greater Than (GT) Series take essential movement principles from hoops and levels them up through a systems-based approach in three new silhouettes: the Air Zoom G.T. Cut, for cutting and change of direction; the Air Zoom G.T. Run, for energy return and running economy; and the Air Zoom G.T. Jump, for vertical jumping and impact protection, all of which are applied through new combinations of the Zoom Air Strobel.
“GT is not a specific product, it’s an approach to creating solutions and identifying new perspective on performance. We do it with the athlete and we do it for the athlete,” explained senior creative director for men’s performance sport at Nike, Ross Klein.
