Nike G.T. Cut 3 : What to know


Its new superpower: a Nike ZoomX Foam midsole, appearing for the first time in a Nike Basketball shoe. 

For Nike designers, adapting Nike ZoomX Foam to a basketball silhouette was a detailed process. The G.T. Cut 3 had to balance the foam’s next-level responsiveness with a low-to-the-ground court feel. The design teams achieved both goals: The stack height on the G.T. Cut 3 is lower to the ground than its predecessor, the G.T. Cut 2, and it’s also lighter in weight, for a springy and responsive feeling on the court. The G.T. Cut 3 features a lightweight textile upper that’s reinforced using Flywire technology to help lock in the forefoot. A TPU component wrapping around the lateral sidewall adds to the containment and helps keep players over the footbed when stopping and cutting on a dime.

“The G.T. Cut 3 enhances my ability to stop on a dime and gives me that quick first step which has always been a part of my game,” says Jewell Loyd, guard for the Seattle Storm. “I’m not the tallest, but my ability to get to spots quicker than the defense helps me to get my shot off when I want to and allows me to make a play on defense when I need to, helping me elevate my game.”
