Best Foot Forward: Peak Battier IX
With his career ending last 2014 season, Peak Sports graciously released Shane Battier's 9th signature shoe to pay homage to his game especially for his defensive abilities. The Battier IX might be his last signature shoe with Peak and although Peak is continuously recruiting NBA players to enter their sneaker roster, let's check out what Peak has in store for Battier's encore shoe with them. Here is what I found at Amazon regarding the shoe.
- Synthetic Leather
- rubber sole
- Upper Design: perforation design on which is easy to be wet by sweat offers a cool environment inside the shoes despite of strenuous exercise.
- Sole: hyperboloid FOOTHOLD TPU on the arch offers enough traction to meet the needs of stability and breaking through.
- Outsole Texture: Special shape on the fore sole enhances friction and reduces the use of rubber, which decrease the shoes weight.
- Heel: 3D TPU on the heel is a perfect blend of support and cushioning
