You Down With The Cradle Rock Low?
Steve Nash's new shoe is a departure from year's past.
words_Nick DePaula Steve Nash has been no stranger to lows for all of this decade, after kicking things off in Dallas with the Flight '00 (aka Garnett III takedown), moving into the Jet Flight for an extended time, giving the Zoom Drive a spin for a while and then balling out in the Zoom BB I & II Lows and Zoom MVP for the past few years. Lotta lows. Once again, he'll be wearing a low-top this season, but his latest shoe, the Cradle Rock Low, has taken on a skate silhouette more reminiscent of formerly hoops shoes like the Dunk and Court Force. The Cradle Rock Low, which will be available for $78 in several colorways, along with the version Nash is currently wearing, is designed by Nike Basketball's Cheresse Thornhill, and features a full-length Cushlon midsole. The lightweight and low-cut departure from Nike Basketball's more modern sneakers of late is a nice touch of heritage and look back on the models of the 80's that helped to build the foundation of the brand. Along with Nash and teammate Channing Frye, the Celtics' Rajon Rondo has also been playing in the Cradle Rock Low, and on a more bench-ridden note, Sean Marks has been wearing a basic black/white version as well. Are you feeling this new look for Nash? Is the height too low for your own comfort or do you prefer playing in hoops shoes that look more in line with today's performance footwear?
