Under Armour Curry 4 Away performance test

Le 22 décembre 2017 à  03:30
Rubriques : Air Jordans

Under Armour Curry 4 Away performance test

I promise that the Under Armour Curry 4 Away is the cheese burger of basketball.

Starting off with the outsole, UA gave us just a basic circular traction pattern, and I’m cool with that because the stuff works. On crispy clean courts, the traction had me out there like the glaze on a Krispy cream donut — sticky. On dirty courts pretty much the same as a clean court. A couple wipes here and there is all you need.

Here we have what I like to call “bricks in a pillow cushion.” This setup hurts something fierce; I am not a fan of it all. I was only able to play in these for a few games at a time. These were like my warm-up kicks to get me ready to dish out buckets, and it sucks because everything about this shoe was fire except the cushion.

Now UA hasn’t given us much information on what the cushion could be made of so nobody knows what it is. All I know is the brand used a proprietary foam compound. The only good thing about the cushion was the court feel, and I mean you can really feel the court.

For those of you looking for cushion, impact protection or whatever, the UA Curry 4 Away is not the shoe for you. Those who want to be quick and low to the ground then these shoes may be a great choice for you. But for me, I’ll pass.

As for the materials, the Under Armour Curry 4 Away features a knit inner sleeve attached to a synthetic upper that is stiff and plastic-y. It’s going to take a few hoop session for these to break in, hence the reason I’m just now doing the review.

Once the materials break in, they will still feel a little plastic-y but for the most part super form-fitting (they wrap around the foot well).

It was almost like a slice of cheese. You know when you take a cold slice of cheese, lay it on top of a burger, and it’s all stiff? As soon as the cheese heats up, it melts a bit and takes the shape of the burger. That’s what the UA Curry 4s materials do to your foot.

I say go true to size. The shoe will feel extremely tight for both narrow and wide footers, but let the shoe break in and do its thing. Once the shoe breaks in, the materials will stretch out enough accommodate your foot. Just imagine if we were born with an outsole on the bottom of our feet with an Under Armour logo on the back of our Achilles. Now that is what you call a one-to-one fit.

Lockdown was also bomb sauce. The sock-like fit was nearly perfect, and I only say nearly, because nothing is perfect in this world you feel what I’m saying. I probably could have taken the laces out of the Curry 4 and played all day without an issue. That there alone should tell you how good the lockdown actually is in this shoe.

Your foot sits inside the midsole to ensure that it stays on top of the footbed. At the heel there is an internal heel counter locking you in place. Honestly, this shoe is probably the best fitting shoe I’ve worn in my professional pick up basketball shoes career.

With the way the shoe fits the support had to be good. For starters, the bottom of the shoe is wide, even at the heel. Secondly, you are sitting in a midsole that’s very low to the ground, so the stability and containment are excellent. Thirdly, the heel counter is helping the midsole anchor the foot to the footbed — dope.

Look here, guys. I can’t complain about the support at all because the support is great.

The Under Armour Curry 4 is a fantastic shoe for anyone looking for court feel. For the people who want impact protection and all that good stuff then I’d say stay clear from the newjordans2018.com .

For me, the cushion was very unpleasant, and I had to switch my kicks after a while. However, for being some warm-up kicks and nothing more, the Curry 4 Away will be just fine.

Newest Shoes! Nike Kyrie 4 Performance Reviews

Le 20 décembre 2017 à  04:41
Rubriques : Air Jordans

The Kyrie 4 is the most well-rounded Kyrie to date.

Traction on the Kyrie 4 is comprised of multi-directional herringbone — a favorite of mine. I love when traction patterns are aggressive yet traditional; this one mixes a little bit of the old with a little bit of the new.

This type of coverage worked really well on a variety of courts and conditions. Although the outsoles started off a bit slick the first couple of nights — I think there’s some residue on the soles to start — they consistently got better with each wear. That made wiping the outsoles something that wasn’t required very often.

I still feel that the the past two Kyrie models offered a bit more bite than the Kyrie 4, but I don’t think that that’s a bad thing. This traction pattern worked really nicely without feeling like you could break your own ankles at a moment’s notice.

Cushion is the best it’s ever been in any Kyrie model with the Kyrie 4 on sale .

The heel still features a Zoom Air unit, that I felt was unnecessary for the most part as I tend to stay off my heels. However, if you happen to use your heel then coverage from the Zoom unit is there.

What I loved about the shoe is that the design team brought Cushlon back into the fold — something that I’ve been waiting on for a very long time. Not only is Cushlon used, but it makes up the entire midsole. Usually Cushlon is implemented with a Phylon carrier to the softer/bouncier foam mixture, but not this time around.

The midsole is still on the thin side (at the forefoot) so the bounce-back that Cushlon usually offers is minimized, but much like adidas’ Bounce, this setup proved to be a well balanced offering of cushioning and court feel.

If Cushlon is used on the Kyrie line from here on out then the line may go from being one of my least anticipated models of the year to one of my most anticipated models.

Like the outsole, the materials along the upper are a mix of the old and new. Engineered mesh is featured at the forefoot and that provides you with a lightweight material that requires hardly any break-in time. Nylon is glued to the underside which restricts all of the air flow, but in turn it strengthens the material.

Meanwhile, the heel panel is a suede material that, while not premium, doesn’t feel cheap at all. In fact, it only makes me scratch my head at the materials used on the Kobe AD Mid even more than I already had. For $120, the Kyrie 4 feels like it could’ve been priced at the Kobe AD Mid’s $150 (I’m glad it wasn’t though).

Prices on these shoes are still ridiculous even with basketball market sales dropping over the past couple of years. Having some of the best performers of the year being priced under $150 is great for consumers and a head scratching moment for brands because some of the $150 and up models are not as well rounded at newjordans2018.com

I suppose it can be compared a bit to the movie industry. Films with smaller budgets tend to have greater impact and story telling even though they have to stretch a limited budget. That forces creatives to be, well, creative. Nowadays, the films with massive budgets often are lackluster and filled with eye candy but not much payoff.

Durability of the rear panel has been great thus far and the durability of the mesh should be okay with the nylon glued to it. Without it I think it’d likely rip over time time as it had on the Kobe 8 after extensive use.

The shoe fits snug but true to size. Wide footers may want to consider going up 1/2 size. If you’ve worn any of the past Kyrie models, I’d highly recommend you stick with the same size you wore comfortably in those because they feel like they’re all built on the same last.

Lockdown was solid up and down. The lacing is traditional so there’s little room for error there. As stated above, the forefoot is snug, which is something I personally enjoy. I always felt secure in the shoe and never felt my foot sliding around at any time — much like my experiences in the Kyrie 1-3.

Support on the Kyrie 4 was something I had no issues with. The midsole doesn’t cradle you in the way that I personally prefer (like a Dame 4 or Curry 4 or new jordans 2018) but the rubber outsole’s exaggerated “teeth” offer a similar feel. The teeth wrap up and around the forefoot to stabilize the Cushlon a bit while also slightly caging the forefoot.

You can’t see it, but the Kyrie 4 has an internal heel counter at the rear. It isn’t quite as strong as something like external TPU or carbon fiber, but it more than gets the job done and ensures your heel remains atop the footbed without sliding over.

There isn’t a traditional outrigger in place, but the midsole up front is wide and sits low. The way it’s sculpted also acts as like an outrigger, which is a huge bonus.

Overall, the Nike Kyrie 4 is Nike’s best performer this year. Its very well-rounded on all fronts in a way that makes the Kyrie 4 more like a Hyperdunk. There’s just enough cushion for most, solid traction, fantastic fit and adequate support — and all of comes at a “team” friendly price point of $120.

I’m not a huge fan of the Kyrie line overall but if this is the direction Nike plans on going with the line then may change. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved aspects of the past models, especially the traction, but the brick-like Phylon has been anything but forgiving. Even the Curry 4’s foam midsole is more forgiving than the Phylon used on past Kyries, so the return of Cushlon was a great choice to bring a bit more balance to the low profile tooling.

I don’t believe I’ve said this all year, because it hadn’t been deserved, but great job Nike Basketball . This is the kind of shoe that I’ve been waiting for all year

Nike Kyrie 1 Performance Review

Le 13 décembre 2017 à  04:15
Rubriques : Air Jordans

Traction – There has been many varying opinions on the Kyrie 1’s traction, and I don’t think any of them have been wrong. I’d say under the right conditions, the traction is excellent. I’ve experienced nothing but great traction out of them, but all of the floors I played on – while not always clean – are well maintained in terms of having been refinished once a year. If you play on a court that could used some refinishing then I think that’s where people run into problems…especially when dust is present. I will say that I did need to wipe the soles every so often, but not to the point to where I felt the traction was anything less than stellar. Now… if only the rest of the shoe was as good.

Cushion – Nike Kryie is a rectangle shaped Zoom Air unit located in the forefoot, and its about 8-10mm thick which is great, but its encased in Phylon that becomes pretty damn dense. My first night of playing in them I thought the cushion was decent, but the more I played in them the quicker the Phylon began to break down and become a solid piece of foam. The lines or grooves that are in place help with creating some compression once this happens, but once all the tiny little air pockets within the foam midsole are gone… the shoe winds up feeling like dead weight. Not heavy dead weight… just lifeless. Like most aspects, there is a positive side to this affect… you have nice court feel and increased reaction time… but my knees and lower back never enjoyed the experience the following day.

Materials – If you guys checked out my nike kryie 3 performance review then you already know whats up with these. Textile mesh, glued to Hyperfuse… and thats pretty much it. I will say that I liked the forefoot on these once broken-in due to the fact that Nike used a nice neoprene layer under the textile mesh. This is the one area where fuse is hardly present, only on the toe rand and thats for protection of the materials underneath. This type of setup definitely gets the job done, but as I’ve said before… you either love Fuse or you hate Fuse… and I’m just not a big fan of it.

Fit – The fit is incredibly awkward. I honestly can’t tell you how they fit… this is a shoe that you’re just going to have to try on – I did go with my regular size if anyone is wondering. They run pretty narrow, and you’re going to need to constantly adjust the laces in order to make them comfortable, but once they break-in they aren’t too bad. They kind of remind me of the KD 5 in that sense. That was a Nike kryie 1 dream shoes I really didn’t like in the beginning but grew to enjoy the more I played in them. Same thing goes here… if you give them enough time, then you’ll likely enjoy them more and more. If you’re looking for something that’s ready to go straight out the box… keep looking.

Support – In terms of lockdown and support… they were okay at best. The heel isn’t incredibly supportive while the fit has its issues, preventing perfect lockdown. I also had to lace these all the way to the top otherwise my heel felt like it was going to pop out of the shoe. There’s also an internal support bar for torsional support – the same feature you see on most of Nike’s models without a formal shank plate. Other than newjordans2018.com… they weren’t too impressive.

About Fragment x Air Jordan 1 Story

The 2014 Fragment x Air Jordan 1 remains a highpoint of resell prices for modern colorways of Michael Jordan's first signature sneaker, the shoes now selling for upwards of $1,700. There are still occasional opportunities to buy them for a fraction of that price though, as with the recent pairs that landed at Marshall's or the rare restocks.

Do the stores know what product they have in stock?

Everyone on the store level at Marshalls is there to make sure the goods get out on the floor. The employees might be individually aware of certain products, but they’re not aware of how the system allocates the goods. The system they use is made to be autonomous. They put everything on the floor. There’s no backstock, there’s no way to know if there’s a different size at another store.

How did the Fragment x Air Jordan 1s end up in a Marshalls?

If I had to guess, it was probably a late shipment. They’re not B grades.. It’s all A-grade stuff. It’s all made to sell in stores. It was either a late shipment or a lost container that they found later on. A store might not have been up to pick up their order. Stores have to pay for the sneakers within 30 days of getting them. If something’s past due, their order might still be in the warehouse, and it becomes part of the bulk buy from Marshalls.

The sneaker is coming back in 2017 via a restock through End Clothing, which held back stock from its original launch to make the model's return possible on newjordans2018.com

adidas D Rose 8 performance reviews

Le 7 décembre 2017 à  05:08
Rubriques : Air Jordans

Traction      I wish I could say the traction on the D Rose 8 was as beastly as it was on the D Rose 6 or 7 but it just wasn’t. That was a letdown because traction has always been a strong attribute in the D Rose line. As a player that relied on his speed and agility he needed a shoe that would be able to keep up with him from the ground up.

Some people may say that Rose’s declining health doesn’t require amazing traction or  that adidas has simply given up on Rose and his signature shoe. However, I don’t believe that is the case. Making up excuses for brands isn’t something we do here. adidas designed and released a shoe that doesn’t offer the same level of bite previous versions had, simple as that.

Do I feel the translucent rubber was the cause? No, not this time. It felt like the pattern was the actual issue because it’s aggressive, but it’s also flat. Flat traction rarely works well on all surfaces unless its comprised of some heavy duty rubber.

The rubber used on the Rose 8 is the same tacky stuff that adidas has been using on previous models — all of which have excelled in performance due to the compound and the pattern. This time around, only the rubber compound excelled while the pattern left a little to be desired. It worked really well when it worked and not so well when it didn’t.

Cushion Boost is used on the D Rose 8 and it’s the same exact Boost slab we saw used on the Crazy Light 2016 — which is great. (The Crazy Light 2016’s Boost midsole is my favorite that adidas has offered thus far.) While I enjoyed the low profile setup on the Harden Vol 1 and the plush setup on the Crazy Explosive, there is something about the Crazy Light 2016’s midsole that just feels like its the perfect blend of both.

No, there isn’t that jump out of the gym feeling when wearing them, but you can definitely tell that it’s Boost and that this isn’t just some basic cushion system. It’s top tier cushion in terms of impact protection and it doesn’t sacrifice stability or much court feel.

adidas opted to cage the lateral forefoot with a rubber panel, and just like the Crazy Light 2016, this proved to be a great addition to the midsole because it ensures its lateral stability despite its restriction on that Boost-y feeling. I actually prefer the way this cage played more than the D Rose 7’s forefoot cage, which was the actual outsole wrapping up and around the Boost. On the Rose 8 it felt more fluid and less restrictive but still stable.

If you want a little bit of everything out of your cushion then this might be the setup you’ve been waiting for.

Materials When I mentioned this on Instagram there were some people that took this as a dig on the entire shoe and got a little defensive, even though those people likely didn’t have the shoe themselves, nor did they intend on buying a pair to try out. The D Rose 8 has the worst materials used on a basketball shoe in 2017 other than the Nike Kobe AD Mid.

Now that I’ve said that, the materials worked. So, while I don’t like the materials that were chosen after receiving the D Rose 6 and 7 in wonderful Primeknit variations, they still played well.

The forefoot is primarily mesh with foam acting as the structure. It isn’t anything new but it allowed for a lot of mobility and flexibility in the forefoot area, which is great. But, and there’s always a but, the material choice allowed for the forefoot section to feel like it sat above your foot rather than resting on your foot. This left a lot of dead space in the toebox and if it wasn’t for the plastic rear section of the shoe that has little to no give to it, the overall fit could have been very sloppy. Ventilation was great though, for those wondering.

Now, about that rear section of the upper. Well, that felt like it was ripped right out of 2010 and brought back into the future. We still see fuse used a lot on footwear, but nowadays it’s much more strategically placed; it’s mostly used to merge panels without the use of stitching, or it’s used as a thin overlay to protect high-wear areas and stress zones.

Luckily, this section does break-in and offer a very nice fit — it saved the forefoot from feeling sloppy as hell — so it isn’t a loss. It worked really well on-court, it just isn’t what I like.

Fit Like most adidas models, the shoe doesn’t run perfectly true to size. I went true to size due to the rigid heel and the way it’s sculpted and that worked out for me. If possible, try on the shoe before purchasing, and I’d say that wide footers will likely be okay going true to size with the volume within the toe.

Lockdown, in the midfoot and heel, was fantastic in the D Rose 8. The materials might not be what I like, but as I said above, it worked — and it worked well. This section of the shoe felt like it was a built-in ankle brace without limiting mobility.

Once laced up I felt secure and that is exactly what a wearer would want. If using these materials was the only way adidas could have achieved this type of rear fit then I’d willingly make the sacrifice because it’s a trade that is well worth it.

Support The adidas D Rose 8 has all the support features that you’ve come expect in jordan release date 2018. The heel counter keeps your heel on the footbed and your ankle stable and safe. Remember, real ankle support isn’t collar height, it’s all about heel lockdown and containment.

We’ve seen the same torsional plate used on the Crazy Light 2016; it worked well on that shoe and it works well on the D Rose 8 as well. Stability is also on-point with the wider forefoot and lateral cage around the Boost. Then you have the upper. Yes, fuse is plastic and its a cheap stiff material. However, it does have its benefits and for that it’ll get a pass — although leather could have done the same thing and felt a lot better, just saying.

Overall The adidas D Rose 8 is a very solid shoe. I just don’t think it was as solid as the 6 or 7 in the Primeknit options. I’m still holding out hope that we’ll see a Primeknit edition of the D Rose 8, but I won’t be surprised if we don’t see one at all.

Traction is my main gripe with the Rose 8. I understand wanting to try something new, but adidas knows better. We don’t need funny looking patterns that tell stories. Just give us aggressive herringbone that works. On the bright side, everything from the midsole up worked really well and I would recommend the Rose 8 when it goes on newjordans2018.com sale.

Nike LeBron 15 Ashes Performance Review

Le 6 décembre 2017 à  04:47
Rubriques : NIKE LEBRON 14

After weeks of testing, the Nike LeBron 15 Ashes Performance Review is here.

Traction was solid for the most part. You can feel the triangle pattern bite and grip the court really well from a linear standpoint. Unfortunately, laterally I can’t say the same. The way the pattern is implemented seems to be straight across the surface. If some portions of the pattern were turned a bit I feel lateral coverage would’ve had that same bite that it offers linearly.

While I did play in a pair (for a very short time) that featured clear soles, the court I had played on was one of the most pristine surfaces I’ve had the pleasure of encountering. To be safe, rather than sorry, I’d opt for solid rubber. I know there are some killer colorways releasing that use translucent rubber that will be more enticing than some of the offerings that use solid rubber, but (there’s always a but) just keep in mind that if my pair with solid rubber didn’t offer as much bite laterally as it could have, imagine what it’d be like on a “normal” surface and the translucent rubber outsole.

I would not recommend playing in the LeBron 15 Ashes outdoors. Exposed Air units almost always pop once the outsole grinds down to the cushion’s surface and the rubber used here is soft, so it’ll likely happen sooner rather than later.

Beast mode! If you’re a cushion-above-all-else type of player then you’ll love these. The bounce and feedback felt from the Zoom units is incredible. This isn’t the first time this type of cushion has been utilized in a LeBron model (the last time was the LeBron 10) but articulation is present this time around so overall mobility has greatly increased.

Is the setup perfect? While it’s as close as it’s ever been, it still has some issues. Lateral stability — while a bit better than the LBJ10 due to wrapping the front portion of the Air unit in Phylon — could benefit from the implementation of an actual outrigger. I’m not sure why there isn’t a true outrigger on a shoe that rides on a platform made of Air, but that’s what we’ve got to work with here.

If you’re a linear player, like LeBron, then you shouldn’t have many issues with stability and support. However, if you move laterally often then you’ll likely feel the instability and it’ll hinder your on court performance. It caused me to hesitate instead of moving as I normally would around the court.

I believe the tooling could be the cause of LeBron’s recent ankle issues. While he usually sprints from one end of the floor to the other, there are times when he’ll move laterally. The tippy nature of the LeBron 15s tooling will be loud and clear when someone moves laterally in them — and you can see LeBron’s body jerk a bit to recover.

A wider setup or a larger outrigger could likely resolve the issues I’ve been experiencing. I hope we see something on the LeBron 16 that adds lateral stability while retaining all of the awesomeness that is Max Zoom Air.

Battleknit is used here (aka really thick Flyknit) and it feels awesome on-foot. If you were unimpressed with the stiff upper used on the new jordans 2018 and the cheap but soft materials used on the LeBron 14, you may find that the material choice on the LeBron 15 Ashes offers a happy balance between the two.

Some areas of the knit are thicker than others while high wear areas are glued a bit for durability. Once on-foot I felt comfortable and secure, and if you’ve worn Flyknit hoop shoes before you’ll feel the evolution throughout the years.

I went down half size from my true size in the LeBron 15 Ashes due to the materials and build of the upper. One piece uppers can be tricky to get just right and I’d rather have them be a little snug than a bit too loose — especially with the tooling setup the way it is. Trying them on in-store is the best option, and make sure to bring your brace or orthotics with you to ensure everything works.

Lockdown was surprisingly nice from heel to toe. While the lacing structure relies solely on Flywire, it did its job rather well. The top “eyelet” or Flywire cable draws the heel into the rear section of the shoe nicely while additional heel padding takes care of the rest.

Once you’re in the LeBron 15 and laced up, especially if you opt for going down half size, you’ll be locked in and ready to go.

Support in the LeBron 15 is a bit lackluster due to the tooling setup. Traditional support features like a torsional midfoot shank and TPU heel counter are all in place and work well. Hwoever, the midsole and outsole lack a wide enough base and it really hurt the lateral stability and overall support. Again, if you’re a linear player then you should be fine. If you move around laterally then you may have the same experience I had in them.

I love pieces of the LeBron 15 Ashes . Materials and fit are highlights, and the cushion is the best Nike has offered in years. Stability made them a bit concerning for me while on the floor and I never ended up feeling as comfortable as I wanted to be.

If you’re willing to sacrifice lateral stability in lieu of cushion then you’ll enjoy the LeBron 15 Ashes immensely. If you’re a low profile player that roams the floor and curls off screens to get an open look at the basket then you may want something a bit different go to newjordans2018.com
