It is weird as the release date for that color was listed as 7/1. But I do know Nike moved a boatload of Air Jordan releases back several weeks to several months due to the pandemic. I'm sure these got pushed back as well.Really? So they basically are floating it in our faces but denying giving it to us lol.
I agree. Sounds like they are finally putting proper cushioning in the midfoot and under the metatarsals.This finally looks like Nike put some effort into a tennis shoe. Looks wise and cushioning wise. Will wait to see in person. They do look like your foot doesn’t sit close to the ground.
Like them aesthetically though. Good job Nike.
No secret honestly. Just buy in bulk and sell them at retail price. Obviously you get catalogs to see the line ups for the coming months and the following year.
I really need to try it. It looks to have a similar rubber toe style similar to the cage 3, I’m worried about toe durability. But that midsole... it looks to be a possible gel res alternative for cushioning.This is an amazing update to the zoom zero. In one update they've solved pretty much every problem that shoe had.
- They've widened it
- better, more breathable upper.
- better midsole containment
- even better cushioning
- way better cosmetics.
All the colourways so far look great.
My only concern from a cosmetic standpoint is the overly geometric shape of that lateral container that wraps up over the midsole.
Other than that, it's a great shoe. I kind of feel sorry for people who stocked up on the original zoom zeros, this is just a much, much better shoe.
Interesting you mention the cage. I originally thought the GP was meant to be a more breathable version of the cage 4 with a possible react midsole. Turns out it was a ZZ upgrade with double-stacked zoomI really need to try it. It looks to have a similar rubber toe style similar to the cage 3, I’m worried about toe durability.

I remember the issues I’ve had with the cage 3, especially toe dragging. Nike fixed it with the 4 but the GP has possibly worse protection than the 3. But I’ll pick it up when they go retail and (hopefully) they work out.Interesting you mention the cage.

Agree, the toe drag issue is an interesting one. Almost impossible to tell how much protection there is until the shoe is in hand and being tested but it looks a bit skint. Nike has done weird things with not protecting from toe drag in other recent tennis shoes (didn't like the way they put those faceted TPU bits on the vapor x knit).
I just stocked up on vapor X's for clay, and Fresh foam LAVs for HC (these are my two favourites since returning to tennis from quarantine), but there are a couple of the Turbo GP colourways that will be a must-buy for me as soon as they get released.
I take it there will be some laser fuchsia or hot lime clothes around the same time?There is also a white/laser fushcia-sapphire-hot lime that is Agassi inspired. Reminds some of the "What the Rafa" Cage 3 shroud with the colors all mixed in. Looks great in the book!
You bet there is! His entire '90 US Open attire including the shorts/spandex and loose fit flaming ball shirt. Plus Challenge Court t-shirts, hats, a bucket hat and warmup all retroed. It's gonna be an EXPENSIVE month for sure!!I take it there will be some laser fuchsia or hot lime clothes around the same time?
Yeah the zip polo and jorts are definitely on my must buy list.You bet there is! His entire '90 US Open attire including the shorts/spandex and loose fit flaming ball shirt. Plus Challenge Court t-shirts, hats, a bucket hat and warmup all retroed. It's gonna be an EXPENSIVE month for sure!!
Just wait until you see the US Open color coming August 1st. So freaking cool! The swoosh doesn't stick out as much. Plus you got the flaming ball logo too on it.The big *** swoosh on the toe stops me from caring about this shoe. And that's good news cause I really don't need more tennis shoes for a while.
Yup. I'd post a pic but I know the mods don't appreciate it so I won't. The color is listed as White/Laser Fushcia-Sapphire-Hot Lime. Basically think ATC III above with the Cerise (red) color from the ATC IV clothing. And a small flaming ball logo just in front of the Swoosh. The inside toe piece is Hot Lime. It's gonna be AWESOME!! It's a 1st day purchase for me, once I know what the sizing is like (tts or half up). Gotta wait a few weeks to see it.Just clarifying, you're talking about the 'What the Andre' shoe?
