Nike – Zoom Freak 1 (Soul Glo)

I’ve been impatiently waiting for a pair of the Zoom Freak 1’s to drop to a reasonable price, so when the Soul Glo version fell below $75, I snagged a pair. Check out my thoughts below!

First of all, these shoes look awesome. I knew that before buying them and I live in Milwaukee, so I’m a bit biased, but whatever. The design in general is pretty sharp, although it looks better in certain designs/colorways than others. Ultimately, I think this version is pretty sharp and at 75 bucks, it’s a no brainer.

These are Nike’s so I wasn’t worried about the quality when I ordered, and to no one’s surprise, the shoes are well built. I didn’t find any major blemishes and they even came with extra laces.

The fit was true to size and while they are a bit lower than I’m used to for Basketball shoes, the upper is really stiff which makes them feel plenty stable.

I haven’t had a chance to actually wear these to play (since there’s a pandemic and all), but they feel like they will hold up well on the court!
