Xtep Levitation 4
A decent first outing for Xtep, particularly at its modest $80 price point.
The Levitation 4 shoe, from Xtep, is the Chinese brand’s first global foray into the performance basketball sneaker market. And who better to be the face of the Levitation 4 than the newest star of the Beijing Ducks and the CBA, Jeremy Lin.
The shoe borrows design elements from many silhouettes familiar to basketball audiences, including a midfoot strap that is reminiscent of Nike’s PG line, and an upper whose lines and shape take cues from numerous low-top Adidas sneakers.
