The Nike Jordan brand has quickly built a large community of supporters interested in their footwear. Both basketball and non-basketball fans have testified to the quality of their shoes. Shoes from the Jordan brand primarily reflect a player's history and struggle to reach the top of their game.


In the same spirit, the Nike Jordan brand announced the debut of Zion 3 shoes, which will be dedicated to a young basketball player Zion Williamson. Zion Williamson currently plays for the New Orleans Pelicans of the National Basketball Association (NBA).


The Zion 3 shoes embody Zion Williamson's playing style, which combines speed and strength. Built for players or fans with Zion gameplay, the shoes serve three main purposes: containment, court feel, and impact protection. 

What to Expect From the Zion 3 Shoes 

The Zion 3 will come with many features which illustrate the playing style of Zion Williamson. The midsole cushioning of this shoe was designed to absorb the explosive nature which Williamson uses in playing his games.

The speed and strength are well contained with the comfortable midsole cushioning of this shoe. According to the makers, the midsole cushioning was made with Formula 23 foam. The Zoom Air unit in the shoe's forefoot lets the wearer respond immediately to any impact. 


There's also something you should note about this debut shoe. Of all the signature shoes made for Zion Williamson, the stack height of the Zion 3 will be the lowest. This allows the person wearing this shoe to have good cushioning and stability. At the same time, they will be able to react immediately to any ground movement like a tight spin-off. 


Aside from providing stability for players, the Zion 3 also features other abilities. The rubber herringbone traction pattern on the shoe allows a person to become very fast with their movement. You will also see the signature "Z," which represents the name Zion on the shoe.


Like other shoes made for Zion Williamson, the Z shape is made to be more prominent on the design with a raised TPU material. The new Zion 3 has all it takes to make a good debut for Nike. There's good cushioning, great stability, and speed, and it reacts quickly to ground movements. 

Zion 3 a Representation of Struggles 

While collaborating and brainstorming with the Nike design team, Williamson told them his struggles before making it through the NBA. Note that the new Zion 3 shoes, which are about to debut for Nike, will be the third signature shoe Williamson will be making under Jordan sneakers. While telling the story of his struggles to the Nike design team, Williamson said he's "made it out of the mud."

Apparently, Zion Williamson was referring to how he grew up in Marion, South Carolina, to the NBA. Since coming to the NBA, Williamson has reached very new levels. He became the fourth youngest NBA player selected for an All-Star game in 2021.


It will still take a few months for the Zion 3 to release. The Zion 3 “Sanctuary” releases exclusively in North America in September. Then for, the "Mud, Sweat and Tears" edition, it will debut worldwide in October.
