New Nike Tennis Shoe Merges Basketball And Running Innovation

The new Nike Zoom GP Turbo combines several technologies into a tennis design.


By getting the very best products Nike.
Basketball and Nike Running deal, NikeCourt has actually developed a fresh method for tennis for the likes of Elina Svitolina and Frances Tiafoe. The merging of materials and engineering from across Nike’s sports allows for a brand-new instructions within NikeCourt, all the while opening up a distinct visual for the brand name.

The June 30 release of the brand new Nike Zoom GP Turbo takes what was discovered in the popular Zoom Absolutely no model and enhances it.

The Nike Zoom GP Turbo.


The Strobel board traditionally sits below the sock liner as the foundation of the shoe but acting as a barrier in between the foot and the cushioning system, stiffening the feel and moistening the air innovation. The Zoom Air Strobel style, however, changes a conventional Strobel board with a more robust Nike Air system. “It can do all the very same things structurally, but instead of burying the Zoom system in the midsole and covering it with foam, we had the ability to bring the Zoom Air system up better to the foot than ever before,” Walker says. “It permits the professional athlete to feel the Zoom Air unit in its fullest expression. There is less product between the foot and the top of the Zoom Air bag than ever in the past.” The benefits, then, consist of a more responsive court feel and moistening the shock on the ankles, hips and back.

” The Air Zoom GP Turbo are extremely comfortable,” states Tiafoe.

Frances Tiafoe turned to the Nike Zoom GP Turbo throughout the Australian Open.


If basketball was the muse for underfoot, running took over for the upper.

Somewhere else, the heel was motivated by running, however with a more ergonomic expression for tennis that includes a molded piece and added comfort around the collar to secure the heel. The motion of players rocking backing before releasing into a serve helped motivate the design of the GP Turbo heel.

” Reality be told, our tennis category works with everyone,” Walker says.

The visual appeals, however, that was all about tennis. Walker states Nike has an age-old stating that irreverence has to be validated in tennis, returning to the Andre Agassi and John McEnroe days. “As far as a visual, we wished to try something brand-new,” he says, “shock the speed a bit, make a mark, an impact, and indicate maybe a more recent, fresher design aesthetic to come. We wanted to actually make a declaration with this item. Not only is Nike still innovating around the tennis space but developing a product that just looks enjoyable.”

By giving a tennis shoe a fresh cosmetic appeal it may motivate those who wouldn’t otherwise consider a tennis shoe to take a look and possibly even choose up the sport, Walker says. Utilizing the justified irreverence concept, the GP Turbo’s style is born from its efficiency.

The NikeCourt logo design will remain in usage more often on Nike tennis shoes.


For the debut colorway as part of the London Collection, white and purple control the design. Anticipate a healthy release of new colorways moving forward, consisting of the lead colorway of racer blue and light crimson on July 13 and then an electro green and active violet on July 20.

The NikeCourt logo, which has actually made a strong return with the brand, is on the heel and symbolizes that the GP Turbo is part of the Court line.

Even with the professional tennis season’s calendar in flux, the colorways will continue to roll out for the $140 GP Turbo, a continued expression of a new aesthetic for NikeCourt driven by a cooperation of sneaker technologies.
