NIKE HYPERDUNK 2017 FLYKNIT PERFORMANCE REVIEW

Le 11 aout à  03:04
Rubriques : Air Jordans

The Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit features a multi-directional pressure map traction pattern that looks like a crazy RC race track on steroids. The traction was so good I was on the court stopping on a dime when I didn’t have to. It has been awhile since I’ve played on something this great. This is the second best traction I have ever played on, the first being the Kobe 9 Low.

I have no complaints on with the Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit’s traction; it is magnificent on any court. Clean, dirty, plastic, tile, outdoors, it didn’t matter because this traction had me covered. However, this isn’t an outdoor shoe, so I recommend keeping the Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit indoors.

Full-length React cushioning is being used in the Nike Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit Khaki , and a Phylon midsole carries that React foam. This setup was not what I expected, and the first few on-court wears were disappointing.

The React foam was stiff, and it had no life — it was super dead. I was running down the court trying to concentrate on the cushioning and waiting for it to react but nothing was there. Why did Nike call this React? I have no idea.

The setup felt more like something the grim reaper would sleep on. The only decent part about the cushioning was the impact protection, and even that wasn’t the greatest — certainly wasn’t enough for my liking. For the people who love court feel with a little impact protection, you all will like this setup — especially if you were fans of the nike Kyrie 3 and its cushion.

The materials on the Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit are extremely comfortable. The way Nike integrated the TPU yarn in the Flyknit is beast. I couldn’t tell anything was there. I was getting the reinforcement I needed with the comfort I wanted.

Compared the the KD 10, another shoe with a Flyknit build, the Flyknit on the KD10 feels a little more plastic-y where as the Flyknit on the Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit feels more Flyknit-y.

 

As far as the fit goes, the Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit does run true to size for wide footers. I have a narrow foot, I went with my usual size, and should have gone a 1/2 size down. Once the Flyknit broke in, the materials loosened up, causing some dead space in the toebox. That negatively affected the lockdown.

If Nike had added just one more Flywire eyelet at the forefoot that dead space probably could have been prevented. For me, everything from my forefoot to the toebox was just all over the place. When I would make a hard lateral movement, I swear my pinky toe would be sitting on the court just hanging out chilling like, “What up toes? What y’all on tonight?” My other toes would be like, “Man we at club footbed bro come join us.” The entire shoe was doing a gangster lean on me and I wasn’t feeling that at all.

The fit plays a vital role in support and not having the proper fit will affect the support for sure. The lateral containment wasn’t all that great — there was just too much movement going on for my liking. Other than that, everything else was good.

The internal heel counter worked well with the padded achilles pillow. The base is wide and stable and I had no issues staying upright. That lateral containment just killed the overall experience for me.

The Nike Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit isn’t a bad shoe. The cushion isn’t what I expected, but it’s tolerable. The lateral containment wasn’t the best, but it won’t keep me from hooping in these again.Nike Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit isn’t a bad shoe. The cushion isn’t what I expected, but it’s tolerable.

I can see this Hyperdunk being a side piece to my on court rotation; I’ll rock it here and there, but it isn’t replacing anything in the lineup anytime soon.Hyperdunkbeing a side piece to my on court rotation; I’ll rock it here and there, but it isn’t replacing anything in the lineup anytime soon. http://www.kd10sale.com

Nike Air Max 97 Release Guide For Fall To Celebrate 20 Years

Nike Air Max 97 Release Guide For Fall To Celebrate 20 Years

Nike has been celebrating 20 years since the nike Air Max 97’s original release all year — but the real bangers are coming for the fall.

Designer Christian Tresser, the same gentleman that designed the Air Zoom Spiridon, was inspired by the industrial lines of his favorite mountain bike while creating the Air Max 97.

“Mountain bike components and mountain bikes at the time had metal on metal finishes like aluminum and polished titanium,” Tresser said in a statement.

The Air Max 97 is celebrated for introducing full-length visible Air cushioning. Now, two OG builds are returning, including premium renditions, as well as the new Nike Air Max 97 metallic gold.

The Nike Air max 97 Ultra has undergone a weight savings by way of a single layer upper and (hopefully) become more comfortable with new Air-Sole PSI levels.

nike air max 97 behind the design 3

“The innovation in the Air Max 97 Ultra comes from the point of view of refined comfort,” said Dylan Raasch, Nike Senior Sportswear Design Director, in a statement. “We updated the airbag, which is tuned softer, and the foam around it is streamlined to be closer to the ground. The lining is totally seamless with a single shell for the upper construction. The Air Max 97 Ultra retains the spirit of the OG through details you can really feel.”

Here’s the Nike Air Max 97 release guide for the fall, so far.

NIKE AIR MAX 97 OG

nike air max 97 OG white and nike air max 97 OG black for sale

While these are new colorwyas, these AM97s are how the silhouette was originally conceived. Both will be available August 1 on Nike+ SNKRS. No price has been announced.

NIKE AIR MAX 97 OG PREMIUM

Outfitted with premiums leathers and faux reptile skins, the Air Max 97 OG Premium debuts August 4 on Nike+ SNKRS. No price has been announced.

NIKE AIR MAX 97 ULTRA

Lighter weight and supposedly softer underfoot, the Air Max 97 Ultra is available August 17 at retail globally on Nike+ SNKRS. August 5 for North America, although no price has been announced.

Another Saturday, another set of drops that you can cop now.

Air Jordan 5 Retro ‘Cement' 2017 : Men’s |

The classic Air Jordan 5 style comes with a classic colorway, with cement print taking over.

The colorway takes inspiration from the Jordan 4 ‘Cement’ with the gray midsole with black speckling originating from that style. Black and red touches contrast the white leather throughout the silhouette.

Quality is said to be fairly good on this pair, with a supple leather that may come with extra tumbling, depending on the pair.

Check above to find the Air Jordan 5 ‘Cement’ in men’s  sizes, with the men’s retailing for $95.

Air Jordan 5 Retro ‘Deadly Pink’:Women's|

The AJ 5 is also dropping in a girl-friendly colorway, with a black nubuck upper and small touches of ‘Deadly Pink’ to draw the eyes. An interesting touch on this shoe is the imprinted, horizontal lines on the tongue.

You can pick up the Air Jordan 5 ‘Deadly Pink’ up for $90, with smaller kid’s sizes available for less.

Nike PG 1 ‘Checkmate’:Men's|

The popular PG 1 is back with another simple colorway, this time in black and white. The colorway is likely based off of chess, with the strategic game featuring white and black pieces.

You can pick up the Nike PG 1′ Checkmate’ for $83 in men’s sizes, with full family sizes available as well.

Nike Kyrie 3 ‘Blackout’: Men’s |

If you thought the PG 1 was popular, you may not know that the Kyrie 3 is the top-selling basketball shoe out right now.

Nike Flight Bonafide ‘Military Blue’: Men’s

Another updated version of a classic model, the Nike Flight Bonafide has dropped in ‘Military Blue’ at Eastbay.

The shoe takes the eye-catching tooling from the Zoom Flight 95 that was famously worn by the likes of stars like Jason Kidd. The updated part of the shoe is the Flyknit upper, which reduces weight and gives an aesthetic update with more popular shoes from the swoosh featuring such an upper.

Nike Flight Bonafide ‘Military Blue’ can be had for $95. go to our Store:KD10sale.com

Nike Zoom Shift Performance Reviews

Le 2 aout à  04:06
Rubriques : Air Jordans

The Nike Zoom Shift is one of the best-looking budget model sneakers Nike has to offer. Coming in at only $100, how will these babies perform on the hardwood? Let’s find out.

Nike Zoom Shift Performance Reviews


The Nike Zoom Shift features a multi-directional, diamond plate-like traction pattern. It is slightly below acceptable and nothing more. The gray area on the outsole grips the floor decently but the black pods on the outsole collect dust like nobody’s business. It is very inconsistent and very frustrating — even wiping the outsole is a bit of a hassle. I have to wipe multiple times in one dead ball situation to remove the dust from the bottom of my sneakers.

Outdoors, the traction performed like it was an entirely different outsole. The traction is on point outdoors. However, I do not recommend hooping outside in these due to the outsole’s durability.

Can you say nonexistent? The Phylon midsole and the Zoom Air unit in the forefoot are garbage. I have never had a problem with this type of cushion setup until now. I typically get a good combination of court feel, responsiveness, and impact protection, but in the kd 10 for sale that is not the case.

My feet were on fire hooping in these — I’m talking sore for about two days! The Phylon is dense, and the impact protection is lacking something serious. Have you ever played on bricks? This is one of the worst setups I’ve ever felt in a shoe other than some Timberland boots. Shoot, I think Timberland boots may be more comfortable than the Nike Zoom Shift!

The best features of the Nike Zoom Shift are its materials. The shoe sports a lightweight textile upper, neoprene at the tongue area, and some fuse overlays on the high wear nike air max 90 ice 10x. This is going to help protect the shoe against toe drags, and everyday wear and tear. The materials are straightforward and they worked well on this sneaker.

The one-piece bootie on the Nike Zoom Shift runs true to size. It’s a bit snug, even for those with narrow feet. For those with wide feet I suggest you go up a 1/2 size. It is highly recommended that you try to try these on before purchasing, because like I said it is snug and may be too snug for some. However, one of the positive of the snug fit is the lockdown. There is no getting out of the shoe until you take them off.

The support mainly comes from the fit. It is critical to wear your correct size; you do not want to be slipping and sliding all over the place inside the shoe. Having a loose fit could make you vulnerable to an ankle injury, and I know no one wants that.

The padded ankle collar created a comfortable bed for my heel, while the external TPU heel counter secured my heel by acting as a seat belt. I didn’t experience any heel slipping with this setup. The small extended TPU wing on the outside of the shoe did not affect the support at all. It is a useless piece and, in my opinion, only there for aesthetic purposes.
The midsole cupped the outside of my foot and worked together with that snug fit to keep me on top of the footbed.

While the Nike Zoom Shift is aesthetically pleasing, the inconsistent traction and the brick-like cushion makes the shoe very unpleasant on-court. The experience isn’t enjoyable at all so I won’t be taking the kd10sale.com on court. However, I am rocking them to my local grocery store with no hesitation.

Nike LeBron 12 Low Performance Review

Le 1 aout à  05:38
Rubriques : Air Jordans

1.Traction – Nothing has changed in the traction department between the Nike LeBron 12 and the LeBron 12 Low. I guess the one thing that you could consider a change is that there are solid rubber options finally available, whereas the LeBron 12 only offered translucent outsoles to my knowledge. As far as how they played–exactly the same as the original. I personally had no issues with their traction unless there was a considerable amount of dust. They performed really nicely outdoors and indoors and I enjoyed them, just as I had the original 12s.

2.Cushion – The cushion setup has changed and I actually think it’s better in the low than it was in the mid. While the forefoot is missing a Hex Zoom unit, the units are bottom loaded, and you couldn’t really feel them anyway, so you aren’t missing much. While you won’t experience much change in the forefoot, the heel feels awesome. They’ve replaced the large volume Zoom unit with a 180 Air Max unit. Basically, you get maximum cushion in the heel while you receive decent cushion up front that happens to offer greater flexibility and mobility. I don’t think anyone will complain about the cushion setup since it offers a little bit of everything. Pretty well rounded for a LeBron, as far as cushion is concerned, and I loved it.

3.Materials – The regular LeBron 14 for sale used a mesh upper with MegaFuse overlays while the lows feature very little Fuse and a lot of open mesh. Is there a huge difference between the two? Not really. While the mesh uppers haven’t changed too much, the Posite support wings have practically been removed completely and I think that was a huge mistake.

4.Fit – They fit pretty snug, but it’s mesh build so I’d go true to size. They feel great on-foot and require no break in time at all. Containment is solid for the most part – at least in the heel and forefoot – but there is one area where they fail miserably and that’s the midfoot. Remember that Posite that they removed? Yeah…these need that. The Posite material that remains works well for keeping your heel in place – something that is notoriously confused as ankle support – however, the upper portion of the shoe directly above the Posite just can’t contain lateral movements at all. Even with very little weight/ force applied the material gives, and without a HyperRev (original) type strap to keep your foot inside the shoe let’s just say the result can be rolling your ankle within the shoe. This is something I haven’t had happen to me since playing in the dreaded Kobe 7’s.

5.Support – Due to the aforementioned issue at the midfoot, the support suffers greatly. Sure, the outrigger works well, and the Posite – as stated earlier – that’s in place does a fine job at keeping the heel in place, but the upper just can’t handle any type of force applied. Its a pretty big letdown as these cover all the other bases really well. Unfortunately, if you wear these you’re just asking for an ankle injury.

Overall – I can’t remember the last time this has happened – the KD 10 For Sale is the only model that comes to mind at the moment – but everything in the shoe is solid except the lateral support. Traction, cushion, materials, fit (for the most part) is all really nice. If you can’t play in them they’re pretty much worthless on-court. They look great casually, so if that’s all you care about then they’ve got you covered. But if you wanted to play in a pair for kd10sale.com , you’ve been warned.

NIKE KOBE A.D. PERFORMANCE REVIEW

Le 20 juillet à  06:27
Rubriques : NIKE LEBRON 14

The Kobe series has long been one of my favorite signature lines in the basketball shoe industry. The first pair of basketball shoes that I bought on my own (when I was in middle school) was the Nike Kobe 1, the first signature shoe that Kobe Bryant created with Nike after leaving adidas. After that, I owned the 5s, 6s, 8s, 9s 10s and 11s…so it’s fair to say that I’m usually a fan of Kobe’s latest signature shoe. Because of this fact, the Nike Kobe A.D. was one of the most disappointing basketball shoesthat I’ve ever played in.

I heard a lot of bad things about the nike Kobe A.D. for sale before I even got my hands on them, and I tried not to let others’ opinions affect what I thought of the shoe while I weartested it. However, when it comes down to the performance of this shoe, what everyone had been saying was in fact true.

The simple way of putting it is that I didn’t enjoy playing in these shoes…ever. The traction was extremely inconsistent, the cushion system was subpar (and also very misleading with the fake Zoom etchings on the back), and the upper was stiff and uncomfortable. The only reasonably decent portion of the shoe was the support, as the stiff upper cradled my foot well and forced my heel into the heel counter. When it comes down to it, I will never wear the Kobe A.D. on the basketball court again.

For the price point of $160, there are literally dozens of shoes available that not only outperform the Kobe A.D., but also cost a good deal less. Though you can likely now find the A.D. for reduced prices at outlets, I can’t recommend them to anyone who is looking for a solid pair of on-court kicks.

Thanks for checking out the Quick Kicks Performance Review of the Nike Kobe A.D. Let us know what your thoughts about the A.D. are in the comment section below, and stay tuned to kd10sale.com for future performance reviews.

adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit performance reviews

Le 19 juillet à  05:55
Rubriques : NIKE LEBRON 14

Before I get into this review, I just want to say that the adidas yeezy boost 350 V2 for sale Primeknit is my favorite hoop shoe (as of right now) of 2017 — by a wide margin!

YOU CAN FIND THE ADIDAS CRAZY EXPLOSIVE 2017 PK AVAILABLE AT EASTBAY.COM STARTING JULY 27.

For some unknown reason, the adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit outsole looks a lot like an ant farm so I have dubbed the pattern then “ants in a maze traction pattern.” The only issue I had with the traction was when I played on a tiled floor and dust was present I had one or two slips here and there. However, I wiped my shoes and that phenomenal traction emerged once again!

On the dirty hardwood courts, the traction was cutting through the dust like a hot knife to a stick of butter! I was out there wood grain grippin’ and wiping was very minimal.

Now, do I even need to comment on how the Crazy Explosiveperformed on a clean court? Can you say super glue? It was that bomb. I even played on a plastic court and the Crazy Explosive 17 was great. I do not recommend hooping outside in these.

The adidas boost Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit retains the same setup as last year’s Crazy Explosive — full-length Boost with a soft TPU cage on the lateral side of the shoe while the medial side exposes the Boost. Like its predecessor, the cushion is beast-mode. I love it!

I did have one or two guys tell me that the Boost bottomed out in last year’s model but I didn’t experience any bottoming out on any of my pairs. All I know is #Boostislife, life is boost, and whenever I put these on I just want to Boost my life.

The adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit features a one-piece bootie upper featuring the newly forged Primeknit that uses a raised wave pattern. I preferred the materials of the previous CE model. The original CE offered a nice plush feeling and now that feeling is missing. adidas removed the GeoFit inner sleeve on the adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit in favor of a sock-like ankle collar with soft inserts at the tongue and around the ankles for comfort.

Forged Primeknit is dope, and I’m not saying that the materials are trash. They are far from trash, and I love the setup. My feet just miss that GeoFit sleeve.

The adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit fits true to size and is wide footer friendly. Of course, you should still try and try on the shoe before purchasing.

This here was the bee’s knees in terms of lockdown. Last year, adidas put just four eyelets on the Crazy Explosive and it worked (to the surprise of many). This year we now have five eyelets and everything from the forefoot to heel was contained nicely so I had no issues.

Support was great. Like last year, the adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit has a pretty broad base. Moreover, your foot sits inside of the TPU roll cage to offer the lateral support we loved so much in the Crazy Explosive last year. There is also the huge infinity shank plate to keep you stable and boost torsional rigidity. It acts like a spring all at the same time, giving you that crazy explosivenesswhen you need it most.

The newly forged Primeknit uses supportive reinforcement sections on the shoe that stop the materials from stretching too much and keep the foot dead center on the kd 10 for sale Amazing!

The adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 Primeknit is a great shoe! I love this thing like crazy and it is by far my favorite hoop shoe of 2017 so far. It’s number one in my rotation and I’m pretty sure it will be in many of yours as well. I recommend this shoe to everyone that hoops — I don’t give a diddly-damn how big or how small you are because the adidas Crazy Explosive 2017 is fire!  http://www.kd10sale.com

Most valuable shoes Nike Kyrie 3 performance reviews

Le 17 juillet à  05:43
Rubriques : Air Jordans

Traction – The Nike Kyrie 3 for sale traction was one of the better tractions I’ve played in. It’s hard to upgrade what was already amazing from the Kyrie 2, however, the Swoosh somehow found a way to upgrade.

The shoe utilizes an aggressive herringbone from heel to toe along with what I call heat-mapped pods at the forefoot. Those pods are specifically catered towards the movements of Kyrie, allowing a guard like himself to aggressively change directions without losing any time. The reason I’d say it’s one of the better tractions and not the best is because of the courts I’ve played on.

The X between the traction pods didn’t bite down and grip like I wanted to, as I found myself relying more on the forefoot pods for transitioning movements from change of pace moves. Coming from the spectacular traction of the Ambassador 9 has set the bar quite high, but the Kyrie 3’s traction wasn’t a slouch either.

Cushion – Um…what cushion? It doesn’t take too much to add a more responsive cushion to a shoe. It’s understood the shoe is designed for court feel, but when you come from a large forefoot Zoom unit on the Kyrie 1, and then just using heel cushion from the Kyrie 2, I was expecting more like kd 10 for sale . Yes, the shoe only costs about $120, but some budget models felt better on-foot than these. Nowadays, you don’t have to sacrifice cushioning for court feel at all, and I’m coming from a bigger man perspective.

The impact protection I need wasn’t there, and it took a toll on my body and recovery. You do feel low to the ground with the Phylon midsole, but when I’m going to work down low on the block, grabbing rebounds, landing off lay-ups or jump-shots, I’d like my knees not to feel majority of the impact. If you like low to the ground court feel, this shoe is for you. For those who want responsive cushion feedback on impact, you should consider something else.

Materials – Now we are talking. The big improvement on this pair from last year’s model is the way the materials were utilized. It’s an all mesh shoe, with foam padding along the forefoot flex area. Visible is the Flywire reinforcement, fuse on high wear areas, and Kurim overlay that protects against abrasions. The shoe is minimalistic yet effective in the usage of materials and it worked very well.

Fit – True to size. For those with narrow to regular sized feet, you’ll be fine. For those with super-wide feet, consider 1/2 size up but I do recommend trying these on in store first. If you wear ankle braces I suggest bringing them with you to try the shoe on. The new jordans 2018 felt great from heel to forefoot and there was no deadspace at all. Everything just worked well.

Support – There is an internal shank plate for torsional support, an internal heel counter to keep your foot locked in place, and a rounded outsole. The only thinking lacking in the support is again, the cushion. It was nearly nonexistent on any type of impact for someone of my size.

Another area that I’m not a fan of is the hard-as-a-rock toecap. The area is fused to the point where I feel like if kicked a concrete wall, the wall would crack. I like having a thumb’s length worth of room when playing ball, but on stop and goes my toe would hit the fused toe cap and that s**t hurt. Support is there but the painful toecap and lack of cushioning are downers.

Overall – This was the first Kyrie shoe I was able to fit well for someone with a wide foot base. I did thoroughly enjoy the shoe, particularly the materials and the traction. It’s such a minimalistic shoe that Nike almost had everything working in unison — keyword, almost. More cushion is definitely a much-needed necessity and a well thought-out execution with support would suffice. http://www.kd10sale.com

This is a shoe for players that cut heavily, need minimalistic cushion, and rely on that court-feel. Players, like big men, who need that responsive feedback from the cushioning should look elsewhere. Overall, The Kyrie 3 isn’t a bad shoe, and there is definite room for improvement, but I do like the direction Nike is going with Kyrie’s signature line .

NIKE KOBE 11 PERFORMANCE REVIEW

Le 10 juillet à  04:31
Rubriques : Air Jordans

Man oh man… One aspect of the shoe can ruin the entire experience.

Traction

I had problems just about everywhere. I took the Nike Kobe 11 For Sale to about 6 or 7 gyms and was slipping in almost all of them. There was only one instance where I didn’t have any issues and that was on a perfectly clean floor. They actually performed quite well when there was no dust present. Even if there was the slightest bit of dust, however, the traction pattern clogged up, causing me to wipe at every dead ball. The traction pattern is simply too tight. Whether translucent or solid rubber, dust will fill the grooves and cause issues.

Cushion

Nike, once again, utilized a drop-in Lunarlon midsole. This time they implemented a Zoom unit in the heel. Unlike the previous renditions of the Kobe series, the midsoles didn’t bottom out. In other words, they didn’t wear down like they did in the Kobe 8 and 9. I was actually very pleased with the cushion. Not only were they comfortable, but the Zoom unit also triggered a smooth heel to toe transition. In my opinion, the drop-in midsole offers a perfect balance between cushion and court feel. If you’re interested in more cushion, then you can NikeID a pair that has a full-length Lunar and Zoom midsole. You can also use full-length lunar (no Zoom) if you prefer more court feel.

Materials

Nike didn’t use glue to back the flyknit? These must be amazing! Wrong…sort of. Instead of using glue, they threaded TPU, or plastic, within the flyknit. From the moment that I tried on the shoe, I heard a voice in my head. It was DJ Khaled saying, “Congratulations, you played yourself.” In all seriousness though, there isn’t any upgrade from the Kobe 9 or 10 as far as materials are concerned. Nightwing’s review was spot on. He suggested that they use the TPU only in high-wear areas – I completely agree.

Fit

First off, the shoes fit true to size. There is minimal volume in the toe, but that was easily resolved by wearing two socks. I was contained in the mid-foot area thanks to Nike’s flywire technology, which proves its worth time and time again. An external heel counter kept me secure in the rear of the shoe. A wide and stable base helps to prevent ankle rolls along with a natural, low to the ground ride caused by the cushion set-up.

Support

The support on the Cheap Kobe 11 is solid and like most shoes, comes from the fit. Wide base, natural ride, external heel counter, and flywire. Same thing that was said in the fit section. Not to mention, the materials add even more support thanks to the TPU that is woven into the flyknit. The materials will be supportive for all types of guards and slashers. (The traction might not though.)

Overall

There are two things that could have been improved, traction and materials. It boggles my mind that Nike can release a shoe with such a high retail price ($200) and integrate such an awful traction pattern. Similar to the Kobe 9 and Cheap Nike Air Foamposite One Hologram, the materials aren’t bad at all. They could (and should) be better, but they aren’t terrible. What do you think of the Nike Kobe 11? Let us know in the comment section below.
