The legacy of basketball goes far beyond the court itself — it continues to impact popular culture in numerous arenas, like fashion for example. To honor the past, present and future of the sport, Nike shares an exclusive sneak peek at the new 12 Soles zine featuring some of the brand’s most transcendent silhouettes to have ever hit the hardwood.
Granted, women’s presence in sports in general is oft overlooked, historically male-focused. But the Swoosh continues its committed effort to celebrate all athletes — male and female — by teaming up with Downtown Girls Basketball. The NYC-based team has hops — that much is clear during games and in their own spread within the publication. They put sneakers like the Kyrie 2, Zoom KD 9, Foamposite Doom and SF-AF1 in motion alongside soon-to-be-released styles counting the Air Jordan XVI Retro, Air Force 1 Ultraforce Mid and Air Max Uptempo pack.
