Vince Carter’s Legendary “Dunk” Shoe
The original Nike Shox BB4 came out in 2000 and made a huge splash on the world stage, as it was the first sneaker to show off the Nike Shox system. Vince Carter revealed the shoe after joining Nike that year — he wore a pair while performing his legendary dunk over a 7-foot opponent, proving the raw power contained within the Nike Shox technology. This moment catapulted him to superstardom and began the BB4 on its mythical journey toward legend status. Shock columns under the heel can provide the same piston-like spring for you, absorbing heel impacts and transferring the energy to your forefoot.
Built for Blastoff
The Nike Shox BB4 was inspired by the Space Age, with an astronaut suit-like upper featuring clean lines and a prominent tongue. The Shox system gives the sole profile the appearance of rocket engines ready for blastoff, while five metallic buttons add a high-tech pop to the side panels. The Nike Men’s Shox BB4 is available in multiple colorways to fit your aestheticP
