Following the releases of the Zoom Flight '98 (aka Zoom Glove) and the Zoom Hawk Flight, the Nike Zoom GP was Gary Payton's first official initial-carrying signature sneaker in 1999.
As aggressive, flashy and technical as its wearer, the Zoom GP was an Eric Avar creation highlighted by a an asymmetrical lace cover, ski boot-inspired ratchet lock down system, Alpha Project detailing and a healthy amount of Zoom Air cushioning. Like Payton, the shoe was a bit of an underdog that stood out in its industry's golden age.
The Zoom GP has been absent from retail since its original release, but it sounds like that will change soon. Instagram's Oklai19, a reliable news leaker, reports that the Zoom GP is set to return in May 2019, just in time for its 20th Anniversary.
Information regarding colorways, pricing and equipped tech hasn't been announced. We'll keep you posted with new developments in the coming months.
