New Nike Zoom KD 9 Performance Text

Le 30 juin 2017 à  03:11
Rubriques : Air Jordans

Yeah, this is late. Yeah, the shoe has been out for three months. Yeah, the Nike Zoom KD 9 has already been reviewed by everybody. Sorry, but when a shoe is this good it deserves all the praise it can get. Yeah, I just ruined the review for those of you wondering about the final overall opinion. Who cares — read up and enjoy…

kd9 traction

TRACTION – For this review, two different shoes were used (the reason for why this lagged) in order to test two outsole options: the translucent option featured on the ‘Gold Medal’ colorway and the solid outsole of the original ‘USA’ colorway. On clean floors, both provided some of the best traction on the market — grippy, sticky, durable indoors, and doesn’t hold much dust due to the honeycomb cells being wide open. On semi- to really dirty courts the translucent stuck but had to be wiped frequently. The solid was good, no matter what nasty, grimy courts they were tried on. Outdoors? The solid will last a little longer, but probably not much, and once you wear through that rubber you are playing on Zoom bags. From a cushion standpoint, that’s great, but for traction, Zoom bags suck.

kd9 cushion

CUSHIONING – Thank you, Leo Chang, or whoever decided to use REAL ZOOM in this year’s Nike shoes. When given Zoom bags like these in the Nike HyperRev 2017 and the Hyperdunk 2016 all is right in the little court in my mind. This is the bouncy, responsive, energy returning Zoom that was supposed to be; there are no Phylon-encased quarter bags or not-really-there dime bags (Kyrie 2, looking at you) — just pure, unadulterated fun bags. Some have said in other reviews that the bags had a lag time, that lateral response was a little slower due to the softness of the bags. Nah, not really. Up and down the court is so smooth, running off cuts and screens is easy, and staying in front on defense was not a problem.

This setup is way more flexible than previous Max Zoom units and the bag didn’t leave feet hurting or tired from overworking to flex the midsole. And the separated units in the forefoot are magical; the flexpoint sits just at the foot/toe joint to roll into steps and jumps. Dang perfect.

kd9 materials

MATERIALS – Look!!! Nike put Flyknit on a basketball shoe!!! Oh, the Kobe series already has it? No, it doesn’t, at least not like this. True knit is flexible, comfy, and requires no break-in time. The KD 9 completes the trifecta, but by a nose — it only has the knit in the forefoot and mid foot. No hot spots, no rough edges, and surprisingly, it keeps the foot on the footbed. The tighter overlay cross-pattern provides the hold by keeping the lateral stretch to a minimum. It isn’t as solid as a fuse or synthetic upper but slipping around in the shoe was never a problem while playing.

The heel is a mesh/fuse material which is nothing new, but it gets the job done. One question: with the solid internal/external heel counter, which does a great job in stability, why not go Flyknit all the way? Maybe on the  Nike KD 10 ?

FIT – Ahhhh, now we get to the “problem” area. This is, by far, the most debated shoe, as far as sizing is concerned, in 2016. When wearing the ‘USA’ pair in my true size of 10.5, I almost pulled my shoulder out of socket getting them on. I don’t think I have wide feet (no Shrek in the building) but the collar would not let me in. But if you keep working you’ll eventually get it in (so. many. jokes.). The 10.5 would have probably worked, but an 11 felt way better on the piggies.

A note: I do like about a thumbnail width at the end of the toes for some comfort space. Once on, and with that little extra room, magic happened. You don’t even need the lace loops, just yank and go (again, jokes). The heel has extra padding just below the topline of the ankle collar and the placement cuts slip completely off. The midfoot area is a little tight where the mesh meets the knit, and it does not stretch, so if you’ve got the fat feet you are in trouble. The forefoot Flyknit wraps perfectly and believe it or not, keeps the foot over the footbed on just about every move.

SUPPORT – Basically a sock with a sole, so support structures are not at the front of the design ideas here, although the fit helps. There is an internal heel counter under that KD logo that does a good job holding the heel in even though the lacing system stops low on the ankle. The base of the shoe is wide, especially for a KD shoe, so the stability side to side is on.

The Phylon midsole is sculpted under the arch for a little stiffness there and the Zoom Max is cut away in that area to keep that sinking feeling away from that area. For someone with foot problems, and looking at the KD7 and 8, the support on the 9 is surprisingly light, although KD did say his shoes are designed for the now, not what may happen, or to prevent something later from injuring.

OVERALL – Best. KD. EVER. Seriously. Besides a little less support than some need, there are no problems with this shoe. Traction — excellent. Cushioning — beyond excellent. Materials — the best Nike has to offer. See a pattern? Actually, this is the best Nike shoe in years.

Hyperbole? Exaggeration? Maybe, but the KD 9 just shows what the Swoosh can still do when it wants to — make killer performers with comfort that look okay off-court (in a few years this may be a killer casual retro). If you want the best Nike has to offer, look no further: the KD 9 is all you need to know. http://www.kd10sale.com/

AIR JORDAN 6 RETRO PERFORMANCE REVIEW

Le 27 juin 2017 à  04:37
Rubriques : Air Jordans

AIR JORDAN 6 RETRO PERFORMANCE REVIEW

The Air Jordan 6 doesn’t exactly boast a specific traction pattern or surface & they don’t look to be overly impressive either, however, if kept clean they are actually very good at keeping your foot planted on the floor no matter what you were doing.

This was noted on a previous Performance Teaser but if you can keep the clear sections free of debris then your experience will be a pleasant one. I personally use a traction mat but you can easily bring a lint roller or a roll of duct tape with you to quickly remove debris from the sole… a good old fashioned hand wipe is also adequate so long as you are consistent with it.

Cushion – This is just as it has been with the Air Jordan 3 & 4, AJ5 is a bit better, so prepare yourself for minimal cushion underfoot. The Polyurethane is dense and the Air Units are embedded within so you won’t receive a comfortable ride but the impact is being absorbed a little.

An easy solution to any cushion issue is an insole swap. There are plenty to choose from and can be catered to your specific needs. I opted to use the SofSole insole – not for cushion – and I will explain more a bit further down.

Material – With this particular shoe there are a variety of material options available depending on the colorway chosen. The reason I went with the Air Jordan 6 Carmine For Sale colorway is due to the dual material layers placed along the upper which provided me with proper fit & support where I needed – leather sections – and maintained flexibility where I needed – mostly at the forefoot with the nubuck sections. Overall durability is pretty nice as well given that these are a newer Retro product and they were able to withstand heavy beatings on-court.

Fit – The overall fit is decent as is… nothing too spectacular. This was mostly due to the dead space inside the shoe since they have very little padding with the exception of the collar & heel. Going down to a size 8.5 versus my usual size 9 would have helped a bit but the length could have been an issue and caused toe jamming… which hurts like hell if you’ve never experienced it before.

In the Cushion section I mentioned the insole swap… the fit was the reason why I chose to replace the insole with a thicker one. The added height was able to lift my foot up enough to allow the materials to properly function which then provided me with a great overall fit and lockdown once fully laced.

Ventilation – Quite possibly the most well ventilated Air Jordan model and kd 10 sale within the entire lineup. Plenty of perforations are in place and they aren’t blocked or lined with excess materials hindering the air flow.

Support – Not much support is found other than with the fit itself. Materials will help with this so you need to choose wisely if you wanted to play in a pair. Like I mentioned above, if you want some material support and flexibility along the upper then this type of setup would work as far as materials are concerned. If you need more support than I would go with leather upper and for less support a nubuck or suede upper.

Overall – Not a bad shoe – in my opinion – but not the best either. It’s a shoe that offers many great attributes while falling short on others… like most shoes. If you require adequate traction (if outsoles are kept clean), durability & ventilation then the Air Jordan 6 Carmine For Sale may be a good option for you. Their lack of cushion and inferior fit can easily be remedied with a simple insole swap which then makes these a very well rounded performer on-court go to kd10sale.com

The Nike KD Trey 5 V deconstructed there

Le 26 juin 2017 à  06:26
Rubriques : Air Jordans

Looks like the team over at Fastpass is at it again, and this time, the saw was taken to the Nike KD Trey 5 V

The takedown model draws some inspiration from the KD 10’s lacing system and forefoot flex groove, but apart from that, everything is different — for better or worse. Also, the tooling is almost identical to that of the Nike Zoom Live, with some very minute changes. (You can find more information regarding the KD Trey 5 V here.)

The KD Trey 5 V has a pretty small Zoom unit in the forefoot that is bottom-loaded. Like most of the takedown models from Nike, there is nothing in the heel, so nothing out of the ordinary there.

What is interesting to note is the thickness of the Zoom unit, however. The KD Trey 5V’s Zoom unit is 7.11mm thick and 35.28mm wide. Compare that to the Nike Zoom Shoes Live’s 8.18mm and 39.89mm, and you can see that the KD Trey has a little less bang for the buck.

There’s no word on price or when these are set to release Stateside but after seeing these deconstructed, are you going to cop or drop? See anything interesting that caught your eye? Let us know what you think in the comment section below.

As always, keep it locked to kd10sale.com for any upcoming news and reviews on the KD Trey 5 V.

Nike Kobe A.D. Performance Review

Le 20 juin 2017 à  02:44
Rubriques : Air Jordans

The Nike Kobe AD is Kobe Bryant’s twelfth signature shoe. It is the first sneaker to release after Kobe’s retirement from the NBA.KOBE AD full name is After Death. “Down below, the Kobe A.D. is equipped with a translucent midsole sidewall, exposing a Lunarlon midsole and a Zoom Air unit in the heel for maximum responsiveness, comfort and cushioning with your every move.” – Nike.The Nike official site said .

Now we get it

The out box was changed which have not ID card .

Nike Kobe AD Flip the switch colorway is attraction by people , with black and gold Swoosh.

The Lunarlon midsole which clear color.

The toe of shoes have code :Rebirth and Evolution.

1,Material

Textile mesh is used along the upper. It’s lightweight, strong and durable. It’s also very supportive for a textile

It is more lighter .But the white is not easy keep clean .

Kobe AD used a large volume Zoom unit in the heel. However, it’s just an engraved piece of TPU that Nike was able to replicate the look of Zoom on .The Zoom Air unit within the rock hard “Lunarlon” midsole.

DeMar DeRozan wear the Kobe shoes in the season game .

Here are some picture as below :

2, Cushioning :

The Lunarlon midsole is not good that I expect .You get some court feel , The cushion of the shoe doesn’t offer impact protection, you do get some court feel but it’s not even a responsive or comfortable setup.

3, Supporting :

As we know the low shoes seem not very good for supporting .But Kobe’s shoes always did a wonderful job of providing proper support for that specific low profile guard that wears a low top.

The A.D. has an outrigger with  TPU cage wrapped around the shoe’s heel and midfoot area and the whole outsole is flat

Here are some disadvantage that I played two hours .

1 ,The grip is not very well in the clear court . Compare with last version , it is seems more weak .

2, The white colorway is not easy to keep clean .

3, The midsole is a little stiff , I can feel not snug after playing long time

The setup is very lackluster and required more break-in time than one expects to put up with nowadays.

Overall , Kobe AD Sneakers is worth to buy , the white color is great ,though it is not easy keep clean , the cushioning is not bad

How do you think? If you have another idea .  just join us to discuss it . GO TO :http://www.kd10sale.com shopping

Nike Basketball And Kevin Durant “Make a Champion" and New KD 10 Release

Nike Basketball And Kevin Durant “Make a Champion" and  New KD 10 Release

Love him, hate him, or just don’t care, no one can deny one thing: Kevin Durant is a champion.
Yeah, he went to the team that beat him. Yeah, the Warriors were already loaded. And yeah, he only averaged over 30 points per game and won Finals MVP. The move worked for him and Warriors fans everywhere. The trophy was the culmination of a 10-year career spent with Seattle (remember them?), Oklahoma City, and now, Golden State. What has been one constant in his game? Nike.

Ever since KD was a kid running up the neighborhood hills, playing summer leagues in the DMV/Baltimore area, leading the nation in scoring and rebounding at the University of Texas (Hook ‘Em!!), he has worn the Swoosh on his feet — and this Finals were no different. Debuting the Nike Zoom KD 10 in the Western Conference Finals against the Spurs, Kevin won nine out of ten games in the KD10 while averaging 28 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists.

The ‘BeTrue’ moniker celebrates the LGBTQ+ community and aims at supporting all athletes by encouraging equality and respect for everyone. The ‘BeTrue’ KD10s have been spotted on the feet of WNBA stars like LA Sparks Champion Essence Carson and Connecticut Sun superstar Jonquel Jones.

This Nike Zoom KD10 features an all black Flyknit upper and yellow lettering on the tongue and the Swoosh. The translucent outsole beautifully maintains the eight colors of the original 1978 Pride Flag, much like the Nike Air VaporMax ‘BeTrue’ did.

There is no word if or when the Nike KD 10 ‘BeTrue’ will release, or if they will be PEs only. It would probably be in the Swoosh’s best interest to release this build, not only the performance aspect, but for the message it relays: equality.

Stay tuned for more updated information on all your sneaker related n

Nike Basketball Shoes has released a short video titled “Making a Champion” chronicling that journey and now we get to bring it to you. Enjoy.  http://www.kd10sale.com

NIKE KD 9 ELITE – PERFORMANCE REVIEW

Le 15 juin 2017 à  04:28
Rubriques : NIKE LEBRON 14

NIKE KD 9 ELITE – PERFORMANCE REVIEW

Today we’re going to be doing a performance review on the Kevin Durant’s latest signature model, the Nike KD 9 Elite. This model re-works the Flyknit upper but also brings back the same cushioning (Max Zoom Air) and traction from the original KD 9’s, but is it a performance upgrade? Let’s find out…

Traction: The overall traction experience is pretty consistent, despite this colorway using a translucent rubber outsole. It really doesn’t matter what condition the floor you play on is in because the honeycomb pattern that Nike has reused from the original KD 9 is going to keep you covered in all directions. If your floor is extremely dusty all you’ve got to do is wipe a few times and then you’re good to go.

As far as outsole durability goes, the rubber compound Nike uses isn’t very durable and the outsole started to show signs of wear after four or five hours of use. So while these won’t be your first option for outdoor ball, the KD 9 Elite’s traction is a top-tier performer in just about every other situation so if you need some consistency in your life, feel free to pick these up.

Cushion: Here’s another category where Nike didn’t change anything from the original KD 9 — and we’re perfectly okay with that. The full-length articulated Max Zoom Air setup Nike uses here is one of the most versatile cushion setups on the market today because every player of any play style can find something they like about it. Explosiveness? Check. Responsiveness? Check. Court feel? Check. Impact protection? Check. Sure, there may be other cushion setups out there that excel and surpass the KD 9 Elite in each of these categories but the KD 9 might just be the only one that provides an above average experience in all of them.

Materials: This is where the Elite version of the KD 9 starts to switch things up from its original version. Nike re-worked the Flyknit upper to make it a little more true to what we see on popular Sneaker running models (like the Flyknit Racer) with a more pliable and forgiving knit construction. The midfoot area is where the Flyknit material really starts to come into its own as it’s a fully breathable zone that is as true as Flyknit is going to get. However, the toebox uses a tighter knit and feels a little stiffer than the rest of the upper; but when you compare it to the toebox on the  Air Jordan 7 ‘Wild ‘N Out’ , the KD 9 Elite feels far superior and quite frankly, a lot more comfortable.

The heel panel also differentiates from the original KD 9’s with a neoprene sock-like construction that is honestly more of an aesthetic look than a performance feature; it’s hard to notice during use and hardly effects the overall feel of the KD 9 Elite.

Fit: At this point in the review you’re probably thinking, “Wow, the KD 9 Elite is perfect, this is just too good to be true”. Yes, it is too good to be true because this is where the KD 9 Elite starts to fall off. Listen carefully as it really is just this simple: if you don’t have a long, narrow foot like Durant himself, you’re going to have some issues with the fit. I had to go down half a size to compensate for the extremely long fit and by doing so the width became uncomfortably narrow. This forced me to loosen up the lacing, but by doing so the support and lockdown were negatively affected.

Overall, I just found the fit to be too specific and not versatile enough to cater to a wide range of foot shapes and sizes, so again, unless you’ve got KD-like feet, you may want to pass on the KD 9 elite.

NIKE LEBRON 13 PERFORMANCE REVIEW

Le 12 juin 2017 à  11:37
Rubriques : NIKE LEBRON 14

NIKE LEBRON 13 PERFORMANCE REVIEW

LeBron James signed a lifetime deal with Nike, cementing his already stable position as Nike’s current top endorser. That means it’s no surprise that Nike would use a person in such a position to help lead new innovative technology. But at times, Nike is arguably even better at marketing that innovation, than the innovation itself. Sometimes it takes a try or two to get that technology right. The Nike LeBron Soldier 11 doesn’t necessarily introduce any new technology, but it implements recent innovations like Hyperposite and hexagonal Zoom better than any shoe before it.

Traction – The traction used on the LeBron 13 is something that I was initially unimpressed with – visually – but they ended up working really well on-court. The hex pods found throughout the outsole feature large bars that act like herringbone, and are implemented in multiple directions for coverage no matter how or where you’re moving. I was unable to play on a really dusty court so I can’t tell you how dust affects their performance this time around, but on clean and very lightly dusty courts they had zero issues and were very consistent.

Cushion – The setup here is similar to the Nike LeBron 12, but they feel much better than the 12’s did. I still couldn’t really feel the two smaller Hex-Zoom units located on the lateral section of the foot, but the met unit and heel unit were amazing. Those two zones cover a large amount of space, plus they’re both 13mm thick…that’s a pretty damn thick Zoom unit. You can feel the bounce and responsiveness with every stride, and that is something that was truly lacking with the 12.

The old saying holds true: if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.

Something that was greatly improved due to the new setup was transition. Heel to toe strides are no longer clunky and instead really smooth. The LeBron 12’s had an awesome Zoom unit located in the heel but was met with a hard Posite-covered midsole upon impact. Now all you have is lightweight Phylon and Zoom aiding you through your stride and it makes the shoe feel as light as they actually are.

Materials – The upper is comprised of a one-piece booty with plenty of additional overlays that offer both support where you need it and flexibility where you want it. At their base there is the sock booty, followed by Dynamic Flywire. This provides you with a comfortable fit and minor lockdown support. Then you have a lot of TPU or Fuse in zoned areas. These areas offer zero stretch so your fit isn’t going to be compromised while making hard cuts or changes in direction — this is one thing the upper does better than the MegaFuse/ Mesh build found on last year’s LeBron 12. These TPU layers feel pretty awkward upon trying them on, and all I can say is that you really won’t be satisfied with the upper until you take them on-court and play in them.

The last two layers are mesh and HyperPosite. Basically, the mesh is there to add a final layer without adding too much weight to the shoe while the Posite is there to protect the mesh. Nike states that the HyperPosite provides “Zoned impact protection” but that’s pretty vague. So I’m just assuming it’s really there to protect the mesh — much like the MegaFuse was to protect the mesh on the 12’s. The Posite overlays will not alleviate the pressure from impact when someone steps or lands on you. Trust me…being a smaller player, I get stepped on. A lot.

Fit --I feel they fit true to size, but there is a tiny bit of room length wise in the toe. I don’t feel going down 1/2 size was necessary for me – as I love how my pair fits – but trying them on to determine the perfect size for you is always best.

Those of you with high arches will definitely want to try them on first because the Fuse/ Posite layer that rests on top of the midfoot — like I mentioned before — has zero stretch. So that area might have a negative affect on the fit for some people. However, lockdown due to the Fuse/ Posite sections was fantastic. Again, they feel very awkward when you try them on, and you have to break them in (slightly) each time you go out and play. But once the materials are warmed up then you’re pretty much locked into the shoe and all you’ll have is a great on-court experience. Unless you’re having an off night, and let’s face it, we all have those from time to time.

The only area that I can really say I disliked was the collar height. Not because I prefer low tops, but because there were times it dug into my legs a bit. It wasn’t horrible or to the point where it rubbed the skin raw, but it wasn’t something I enjoyed either

Support – All of the aforementioned Nike KD 10 for sale , from their tooling to their fit, have a positive effect on their support. The 13’s sport a wide base that feels stable — even though there are a couple of large volume Zoom units in place — and the base is slightly wider than the upper so it cradles the foot really nicely (which aids in stability). The materials and fit all do their job with support as well. There are plenty of areas with flex and mobility, but zero stretch. So you’re able to maneuver on-court without feeling like you’re wearing a pair of Timberland’s.

Overall – I didn’t like them when I first tried them on. Like, not even a little. However, they are really dope on-court kicks that perform really well. Traction and cushion were pretty beastly. The materials are something I personally liked more on last year’s model, but larger players will love that combination of flexibility/mobility and support. They’re ultra lightweight too, despite how bulky they look. Light enough to where a small Guard can still maneuver around the court perfectly fine.

As far as their price/ value. That is really your choice. Set up a budget and stick to it. Does a shoe’s performance really change just because of a higher or lower dollar value? No, not at all. If these would have released exactly as they are for $40 versus their $200 price tag; would their performance have changed in any way? Nope. There are great performance models out there and their retail prices range from dirt cheap to hell nah you crazy. So, if a shoe meets your on-court needs and they are within your budget grab a pair and enjoy them on-court. After all, that’s what they were made for.
