On April 27, 2020 – For the Converse, the G4 brings to the brand is a loud, late – ’80s basketball aesthetic, the modern, positionless player, by means of a dynamic combination of Nike’s Respond to the foam in the heel and Nike Zoom Air in the forefoot.
The two technologies are a natural pairing for the heel-to-toe transition. In G4, the connection supports, a cycle, which absorbs, stores and transfers energy for movement of both ends of the court, and the nature of the process is further supported by the reductive arch sculpting on the shoe-the outsole platform.
“The load aspect is out of the Nike to Respond to foam technology in the heel, and an explosive component, is the Nike Zoom in the front part of the foot,” says Brandis, Russell, vice-president of the Converse Shoes. “When a player is down on the heel of the shoe to activate the stored energy and allow him or her to propel forward, especially for the on-going players such as Draymond Green.”
So, for example, when a player like Green will go down in the elevator, and there is no doubt he is already the market leader in the fast-break to make a play.
To the top, especially in the hi-top is an extension of the cultural predecessor, the Converse ERX. With the thicker collar padding on the ankle provides comfort while giving the shoe a boat-like muscle.
