Air Jordan XX9 Performance Review

Le 5 octobre 2017 à  12:31
Rubriques : Air Jordans

This is how you take something great and make it even better…

Traction – My first experience with the Air Jordan XX9 was on the nicest basketball court I’ve ever stepped foot on… MJ’s. As you can imagine… the traction on that court was unbelievably good. However, I don’t play on pristine courts when I’m usually playing, and neither do most of you. Luckily, the XX9’s still held up on these more typical court conditions, where there were very few issues, and I only had to wipe the outsoles on really dusty floors. Definitely above average traction, not what I was expecting when I first laid eyes on the outsole pattern, but not quite up to the same level as the XX8. Is that a bad thing? Not at all, the XX8 had the best damn traction I’ve ever had (besides the Kobe 9) and the XX9’s just didn’t bite the floor in the same manor, but were still really good. I’d say the XX8’s went above and beyond what one would come to expect from their shoes’ traction, but the XX9’s give you what you should expect… something solid and reliable.

Cushion – This can technically be considered a downgrade since they’ve removed the heel’s Zoom unit, but it didn’t feel like a downgrade when you were playing. With the XX8, there was a small adjustment period while you were getting used to the protruding Zoom unit underfoot – this is no longer the case as the Zoom has been recessed back into the midsole a few millimeters. Removing the protruding Zoom does lessen the ‘bounce’ you receive from the unlocked aspect, however, its still undeniable that this is the best Zoom Air setup to date. I’ve tried Zoom in nearly every single way possible, this is the best version of it. Great court feel, ultimate responsiveness and you get some impact protection on top of that. What minor tweaks they’ve made only enhances the transition of the shoe, some felt the XX8’s were a little slappy from heel to toe, and I think this setup is awesome for Zoom Air lovers.

Does the heel bother me at all? No… but I’m used to playing in such a wide verity of cushion systems (from good to bad to horrible) that these felt just fine to me. I don’t usually put too much weight onto my heels while playing as it is so the setup was nothing to complain about. New Jordans 2018  did core out a small portion of the heel, similar to a runner, so that those that typically strike with their heel will receive some added compression for comfort.

Materials – Performance Woven upper… you the real MVP. In the video, I go over just what the upper does, how it’s constructed and thats something easier said than written. If I tried to write it out to you I’d probably go off on some huge tangent about every single little thread… and I’m not trying to do that. Just know that the upper feels great and it actually is supportive. One thing to note is that you’ll receive a better fit and experience the more you wear them… not sure why, but the woven upper really conforms to your foot shape the more you sweat in it. To the point to where you feel like you’ve got a custom shoe on your foot, way more than any jordan 12 wings upper. They’re ready to go, fresh out the box, and almost reminds you of that one shoe that one shoe you’ve been wearing all year round then forgot about after you bought a new pair… then you’re reminded of how awesome they feel – being so broken in – when it comes time to mow your lawn. To top it off… the materials will allow wide footer to to rock these without having to go up a size as the upper will stretch and conform around your foot in no time.

Fit – They fit true to size and the lockdown is incredible for something woven. There is no Fuse or glue here… just fabric… which is insane. Everything from the woven upper to the Flight Web lacing system work in tandem and balance each other out. No slipping or sliding… just a shoe you lace up and forget that they’re on your feet. Until you look down and think to yourself… ‘sh!t, those are clean as f*%$”.

Ventilation – Not every attribute is perfect. Ventilation is okay… you have air flow because of the woven upper, however, this comes with a small drawback. Because the woven upper fabric, it tends to soak up moisture. Trying to get the shoe dried out enough for tomorrows run is hard unless you use a fan or something. Heat can escape, but not the moisture. Maybe if it were Dri-Fit? Not really sure… it wasn’t a ‘problem’ where I received blisters or anything… but its something to note.

Support – You’d assume that a sock couldn’t possibly support your foot but this isn’t just any sock. This thing is a digitally mastered piece of equipment… put together with precision. Think of a bullet proof vest… that’s just Kevlar strands woven so tightly together that it stops a bullet from plowing through your chest. Similar concept only the supportive pieces are built into the upper in strategic areas. Stretch where you need it, stretch where you should have stretch… all done with a machine that can weave together anything your mind can think of. Then there are the typical support features… the TPU plate, heel counter and outrigger. All doing what they were meant to.

Overall – I wasn’t sure how they were going to top the XX8… and they technically didn’t. Instead, they took what worked, made it work better then added some new tech on top of that. They took something great and made it even better… newjordans2018.com

‘Bordeaux’ Air Jordan 7 retro performance reviews

Le 28 septembre 2017 à  04:41
Rubriques : Air Jordans

Despite having released in 2011, the ‘Bordeaux’ Air Jordan 7 For Sale Retro is being remastered and re-released in the Summer of 2015.These should have better materials compare with 2011 version .and the shape has been slightly altered.Another change from the 2011 pair is that this 2018 version has “NIKE AIR” on the insoles, which I’m sure no one will be complaining about.

It was born in 1992 which inspired by Africa travel by Tinker Hatfield. wilderness gallop of animal , wine of french , all of elements are into the Air Jordan 7 Retro .it is a amazing designer so far.

Air Jordan VII offers some very nice traction that can keep you planted and stable throughout gameplay.The overall surface area is very good no matter your position or movements. If plying in the clean court , it is the best choice ,but the duty court , it is not very well for AJ7 which  was remedied by consistently wiping the bottom .

The most notable difference between the AJ7 and the previous models would be the overall cushion. The original and first round retro releases featured an embedded full length Air unit and these newer retro models have them placed directly under foot.

The molded arch does its job while the overall fit and materials will take care of the rest for you

  • Workmanship ; materials held up nicely, most of the visible damage to the shoe is on the painted sections of the midsole so the leather is definitely a reliable option. Each material option offers different levels of support so if you wish to maximize support then go with the leather versions.
  • Cushion :The original and first round retro releases featured an embedded full length Air unit and these newer retro models have them placed directly under foot.
  • Breathbility: it is not very well because of the leather material ,especial for plying long time .
  •  Appearance: whatever the colorway or design of “Bordeaux” ,for me ,it is amazing .
  •  Cost-effect : The quality and value for money .

Overall , Air Jordan 7 “Bordeaux” is possibly the best early Air Jordan Release 2018  for on-court purposes.They are the classic so far.  They are a very well rounded shoe in general when compared to the previous models as they offer the best cushion, solid traction, reliable materials with a pretty solid fit, above average ventilation and still offer plenty of support.

'Concord' Air Jordan 11s Could Be Coming for 2018

Le 27 septembre 2017 à  06:14
Rubriques : Air Jordans

The "Concord" Air Jordan 11 could be the next original colorway of Michael Jordan's coveted patent leather signature model to get the retro treatment. Popular sneaker leaker accounts are reporting that this Air Jordan 11 is coming back in remastered form for Holiday 2018.

Accounts like @zsneakerheadz and @pinoe77 on Instagram have both hinted at the return of the sneakers.

Jordan Brand has consistently released Air Jordan 11s during the holiday season for almost a decade now, so it is a foregone conclusion that one will arrive next year. What's more, this colorway hasn't released since 2011, and a model returning after seven years is not unprecedented. Still, Jordan Brand has not confirmed this retro, and it feels a little early for a retail release this far out to be totally confirmed.

this Air Jordan 11  Concord everything is the same except the low cut profile (obviously) and a Jumpman logo is placed on the heel of the lows while on the mids it’s placed on the side. In the video and pictures you can see the mids with a slight difference in color on the sole and uppers but this is due to age and not how originally released by Jordan Brand on kd10sale.com .

There are no images of the rumored 2018 "Concord" Air Jordan 11 yet. The above photo is of a 2011 pair.

NIKE ZOOM SHIFT PERFORMANCE REVIEW

Le 26 septembre 2017 à  04:59
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.

The Nike Lebron Zoom Wine 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 Nike Zoom Shift 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 areas. 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 new jordans 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 Nike Zoom Shift on court. However, I am rocking them to my kd10sale.com with no hesitation.

NIKE AIR FLIGHT ONE (1) RETRO PERFORMANCE REVIEW

Le 22 septembre 2017 à  04:15
Rubriques : Air Jordans

NIKE AIR FLIGHT ONE (1) RETRO PERFORMANCE REVIEW
They’re fairly light, very comfortable, look great and they play pretty good too… this is what 90’s performance footwear was all about.

Traction – They started out pretty slick, just like the Rose 7.0. I was hoping that the slippery rubber would break-in and they eventually did… quite nicely I must say. Court conditions really play a factor with their overall traction once the break-in process is complete so expect to wipe regularly if you plan on wearing these on dusty courts. However, the rubber feels durable enough for outdoor surfaces so these may be a fairly good option on the blacktop.

Cushion – I personally loved the cushion setup. With the Zoom Air forefoot and Air sole placed at the heel, cushion is responsive while protecting against impact. There is an EVA insole placed inside that is on the thick side when compared to most Retro releases. It will limit your ability to feel the responsiveness of the Zoom at first but just give it some time to mold to your foot and all will be normal. The only real complaint is that they are fairly high off the ground but stability was not an issue because of it.

Material – While the synthetic upper is durable, it’s pretty cheap and for their price you would expect them to be closer to the original release. This is probably my one gripe with the air flightposite one for sale… the phrase, “They don’t make them like they used to”, rings loud and clear. Luckily, the downgrade in materials did not affect their overall performance so it’s more of a want than a need… but it still would have been nice to see a little more effort.

Fit – They fit beautifully. This is where 90’s era kicks shine. The padding and comfort you receive from the shoes interior is unmatched by todays footwear so “plush” is a good adjective when describing how they feel. Lockdown from heel to toe was on point and that was somewhat of a surprise since heel lockdown was a feature greatly lacking in almost every Air Penny signature model… not that I’m complaining… it was a good surprise.

Ventilation – There really isn’t any. While this will bring down their overall score, you can’t really hold them accountable when ventilation was the least of our concerns back in 1995.

Support – This is another area where the Flight One placed well above average. A TPU shank plate is placed at the midfoot while the Phylon midsole features a small wing – much like the Air Penny 2-3 – for additional lateral support. The little wing is pretty much why the lackluster materials functioned properly.

Overall – The transition wasn’t extremely smooth but everything else worked pretty well. It’s pretty astonishing to think that a shoe designed in 1995 could still be visually appealing and functional on-court…

If brands and designers would just sit down and make a completely functional design, we could still have performance basketball shoes crafted with raw materials today. I mean… every single Air Jordan model has been more than capable of handling on-court action and they’re all made with leathers and nubucks. Just think about it… a shoe made out of leather releasing one more time… you would have a sneaker that looked good off court while playing well on-court… just like the good 'ol days.

You can grab these now at most Nike Sportswear retailers and you can also find them on sale at kd10sale.com.

Find out with my performance review of the nike pg 1

Le 20 septembre 2017 à  04:37
Rubriques : Air Jordans

The Nike PG 1 makes Paul George the fourth Nike Basketball signature athlete to receive his own sneaker. It features a forefoot Zoom Air unit, a full-length Phylon foam midsole, and it’s priced at $110.

Is that enough to get the PG 1 into your gym bag? Find out with my performance review of the Nike PG 1:

Traction – Many of you swear by the “translucent rubber outsoles just aren’t as good as solid rubber outsoles” theory, but while you’re too busy theorizing, I’m too busy enjoying the PG 1’s traction. Despite picking up an insane amount of dust the traction worked very well on a variety of court conditions. Wiping will be necessary every now and then but the overall experience was pretty surprising; the traction provided great coverage in every direction, even without a large outrigger and a relatively narrow heel.

It isn’t quite elite, but the PG 1’s traction is just below that top tier thanks to its consistent performance on multiple surfaces. The one knock I would have on them is that the rubber compound isn’t very durable and I wouldn’t recommend the Nike PG 1 for outdoor use because the outsole will probably wear down quickly.

Cushion – The PG 1 uses a bottom loaded Zoom Air unit in the forefoot and if you’ve experienced this kind of setup before, you know exactly what to expect. It’s a fast and responsive cushion system that favors low to the ground players who want to get to where they’re going with no delay. If you have a more explosive style of play the PG 1 does offer a little impact protection to keep your legs and knees from aching at the end of the night.

The midsole is made out of a lightweight Phylon foam which keeps the PG 1 in a lower weight class and never gets in the way of you feeling that forefoot Zoom Air unit. It doesn’t do too much to enhance the overall experience. Can you find better value at $110? Probably, but for a signature model, it doesn’t get much better than this.

Materials – Depending on what colorway you get the Nike PG 1 will feature a different material in the midfoot and heel, but besides a few player exclusive colorways, the forefoot will almost always be made out of a soft mesh material that requires no break-in time whatsoever. This area of the PG 1 feels so comfortable and free — it almost felt like nothing was there. This is great for forefoot-heavy players that don’t want to feel restricted up front.

The back heel panel in this particular colorway was made out of a soft nubuck which also does a good job at staying out of your way, but the best part of the Nike PG 1 For Sale is what lies beneath the mid-foot/heel overlay. The inner-bootie construction uses an extremely soft mesh/neoprene material that just feels too luxurious to be valued at $110. Overall, the materials on the PG 1 aren’t very durable, but what they lack in durability, they gain in comfort — and that alone is enough to make the PG 1 a certified steal in this category.

Fit – Wide-footers beware because you’re going to have to go up half a size. My foot is slightly wider than most where my cuboid bone meets my metatarsal (lateral forefoot), and for a while the Nike PG 1 was painfully pinching me in this area. After about two weeks this problem went away; the materials softened up to a point where the pinching was totally gone, so in my case going up half a size wouldn’t have been the best choice. For anyone who classifies their foot as “wide” and has a hard time finding a shoe that fits them well, you’re going to want to go up half a size or find something else completely.

The rest of the shoe fit me perfectly due to the great use of materials (they were soft and conforming), but the lacing system also did a great job at keeping my foot locked in and secure. Flywire is integrated into the forefoot strap but the effect of this feature is minimal at best — but that’s fine because the Nike PG 1 doesn’t really need it. Had the PG 1 used materials that were stiff and rigid, the fit would have been a nightmare. However, the PG 1 provides a close one-to-one fit that stays with your foot during every cut, drive, jab and stop.

Support – Shoes are becoming more minimal with their support features as modern design moves toward “free flowing” concepts. The Nike PG 1 is definitely a modern shoe with a couple of support features that work well, but those won’t be enough for those who need extra support or prefer robust support systems. Most of the PG 1’s support will come from the sculpted midsole that cups the user’s foot. This allows the PG 1 to feel more like an extension of your foot and the footbed to be more in sync with the user’s movements.

The heel to toe transition felt awkward at first and while it isn’t as smooth as you would like it to be, it isn’t a deal breaker for the Nike PG 1. You’ll get used to it after a while, but I do wish that the heel was a bit wider for more stability.

Overall – Selling a signature model that features the iconic Nike Swoosh at $110 is about as close to a sure thing as you can get, sales wise. How it performs is a totally different discussion (one we just had) and I hope you were listening because the Nike PG 1 is a fantastic on-court performer. The fit is really the star of the show here — it provides a seamless one-to-one experience that doesn’t resort to gimmicks or complicated concepts to get the job done; it is just a great lacing system with even better materials.

The fit alone is worth $110 in my book, but the Nike PG 1 also features a consistent traction experience that holds up on a wide variety of court conditions as well as a decent cushion setup that favors quick, low to the ground players. Sure, the heel-to-toe transition was a bit wonky at first and wide-footers probably won’t enjoy the snug fit, but at $110, it’s worth a shot right?  www.kd10sale.com

Air Jordan 20 Retro Performance Review

Le 18 septembre 2017 à  04:50
Rubriques : Air Jordans

I first began playing in two different pairs of original Air Jordan XX’s… that wasn’t the best idea as that shoe apparently doesn’t age well. The translucent rubber used on the herringbone pods get slick with age while the IPS cushion system become hard over time, which caused quite a bit of pain during and after playing in the shoe. Not sure why, but that’s what ended up happening. The new pair from this year (2015), however, was good to go, and that is what I will base my review on. So, I would not recommend playing in a pair of OG’s. You can if you’d like too… but you won’t see me do it again.

Traction – When you first look at the traction provided, you can’t help but think that you’re going to receive some awesome traction with harringbone in place. Unfortunately, that wasn’t always the case. The herringbone is inconsistent, and gets clogged with debris easily. A quick wipe will help with all of that, but it still remains inconsistent overall. Surprisingly enough, the exterior sections of the outsole that feature no herringbone performed best. It’s not often that I wish a shoe didn’t have herringbone, but this is one of those times. Just so you’re not confusing things… inconsistent doesn’t translate into ‘bad’ traction… its just not consistently good/ great. So they get the job done, for the most part, but they do leave you wanting a bit more. Of course a pristine court would change all of this, but I don’t have the luxury of playing on that type of floor often… and I assume you don’t either.

Cushion – IPS – Independent Podular Suspension – is an interesting cushion, and I enjoy the hell out of it when it’s new. If you aren’t familiar with IPS, its basically a dual density foam system. You have the Phylon midsole with strategically placed pods of foam that are a little softer than the Phylon. Each pod has a few millimeters of space between it and the Phylon, and they protrude out of the shoe a few milliliters as well. So when you strike the floor, impact is absorbed and you’ll receive a slight bounce or response when pressure is relieved. The Air Jordan XXX2 was the first time the system was utilized, so while its nice on these, it gets better the further you get down the line of Air Jordan’s until you reach the air jordan 13 – the last time IPS was used in an Air Jordan signature model.

When the cushion is new, its amazing. It works as advertised, and if I had to compare it to something… it sort of feels like walking on marshmallow pillars. Actually, thats sort of what the system is. Think of each pod as a marshmallow. You step on it, and it will compress then bounce back into shape. Pretty cool; right?

Now, like I mentioned above, the cushion doesn’t age well… sort of like a marshmallow. They’ll eventually get firm and lose their bounce. So, if you don’t want to shell out the money for a new pair of XX’s, you can try to find the 2008 CountDown Pack version (they’re always priced well below retail on kd10sale.com) or possibly try locating a pair of Jordan Icons. Google those if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

Look at the air jordan 32 deconstructed

Le 15 septembre 2017 à  05:40

Look at the air jordan 32 deconstructed

The Air Jordan 32 ‘Rosso Corsa’ releases later this month and today we’re taking look at what it’s made of.

The Air Jordan 32 is one of the more anticipated models that we at kd10sale.com can’t wait to play in and that’s because it seems to offer a little bit of everything.

Large Zoom Air units, found beneath the forefoot and heel, measure 11mm thick and 13mm thick, respectively. However, only the forefoot unit has been implemented as Unlocked Zoom Air (where nothing surrounds the unit) so that’ll be the only thing between your forefoot and the hardwood.

The heel unit appears to be bottom loaded so this area should feel similar to the drop-in midsoles that have been featured in the Kobe A.D. NXT and Kobe 11 Elite.

There is a Pebax (TPE) moderator plate running along most of the footbed internally; it should stabilize the ride up front so you don’t sink too far into the Zoom unit and pop it. This type of setup has become somewhat traditional in the annual Air Jordan since the Air Jordan XX8.

The upper is comprised of Flyknit and it’s backed with multiple layers of nylon and padding. Air flow may be significantly reduced with all of these layers and the fabric within will likely soak up a lot of moisture that ends up building up inside the shoe. This became a problem with my Air Jordan XX9s eventually because the shoe (which is built like a sock) ended up smelling like old dirty gym shorts after a couple of months worth of use.

It looks like you’ll be unable to replace/change the laces if they were to break — not something I’m really a fan of. They were hidden for aesthetic purposes, according to Tate Kuerbis, the Air Jordan 32’s designer.

Something FastPass didn’t cover is the collar area, which is supposed to be comprised of luxurious suede according to Jordan Brand. I would have liked to see if this is actually the case or if Jordan opted to take the synthetic route again.

Enjoy the deconstruction of the Air Jordan 32 and feel free to share your thoughts on the model below. Are you excited to play in a pair or do you have your eyes set on something else?

air jordan 7 retro pantone performance reviews

Le 7 septembre 2017 à  04:53
Rubriques : Air Jordans

The Air Jordan Pantone series debuted in 2010. Is it too little too late for the shoe to succeed at retail?

While I still enjoy the Air jordan 7  Pantone series, a lot of the newer generation that seem to be “into” sneakers likely couldn’t care less about this release. Maybe if it were an Air Jordan 3 or 4, but even those haven’t sold well — even in rare PE edition releases such as the Motorsports and those including the Nike Air branding. With Yeezy and Boost sneakers being all the rage, the Air Jordan 7 ‘Pantone’ will likely be overlooked. However, if you end up grabbing a pair then our detailed look and review of the shoes should help you know what you’re about to receive.

Traction – The overall surface area is very good no matter your position or movements. Clean floors are ideal of course but even semi-dusty courts were no match for the AJ7. It wasn’t until I played on a debris (mostly dust) filled court that traction became an issue which was remedied by consistently wiping the bottom. Certain sections of the rubber are smooth and fairly sticky when new so this will accumulate dust even on the cleanest of courts so some wiping will be needed.

For what is offered, the Air Jordan VII Pantone  offers some very nice traction that can keep you planted and stable throughout gameplay.

Cushion – The most notable difference between the Air Jordan 7 Pantone  and the previous models would be the overall cushion. From what I’ve been told, the original and first round retro releases featured an embedded full length Air unit and these newer retro models have them placed directly under foot. Major change in cushion from all of the previous models and the midsole itself is much more forgiving as well. Out of all the Air Jordan’s from 1-9 I’d say the 7 offers the most out of cushion and comfort

Material – Depending on the colorway the materials will be different. Each material option offers different levels of support so if you wish to maximize support then go with the leather versions. Nubuck versions will offer you less support but offer greater range of motion and mobility. Overall the materials held up nicely, most of the visible damage to the shoe is on the painted sections of the midsole so the leather is definitely a reliable option.

Fit – These fit a little strange for me… an 8.5 fits securely along the midfoot yet they are to short length wise while a sz 9 (which is what I wore) is fine length wise but could have had a slightly more secure midfoot fit. Once fully laced they aren’t too bad and the midfoot is held down nicely while the collar draws your heel back into the basketball shoes keeping the heel and ankle secure. The best fitting Air Jordan right now comes down to the AJ4 & 7, in my opinion.

Ventilation – Not quite as good as the AJ6 but better than anything before that. I would have liked to have had the perforations found along the tongue to have been completely open from the inside out but everything else wasn’t horrible. These are thicker (material wise) than the AJ6 so what you lose in ventilation you gain in supportive materials.

Support – The molded arch does its job while the overall fit and materials will take care of the rest for you. As noted above, the material choice you make will improve the overall support in general. I did wear the Bordeaux colorway during my playing time in the Air Jordan 6 Pantone and the materials along the upper just didn’t give me enough support when putting a lot of torque on the shoe so I ended up switching back to the Olympic version… it was night and day with the amount of support the materials offer between the two.

Overall – The Air Jordan 7 Pantone  =is possibly the best early Air Jordan for on-court purposes. They are a very well rounded shoe in general when compared to the previous models as they offer the best cushion, solid traction, reliable materials with a pretty solid fit, above average ventilation and still offer plenty of support. http://www.kd10sale.com

Air Jordan 1 Retro High Performance Review

Le 6 septembre 2017 à  03:56

The Air Jordan Project has started out nicely so far, to my surprise, and the Air Jordan I is 100% playable 27 years after their release.

Hit the jump for more…

Traction – As you already know from the Performance Teasers, the Air Jordan 1 has great traction. I still won’t give it a full 10 out of 10 but a solid 9.5 will do.

From a front to back standpoint, the traction is incredible. Medial and lateral movements are just as impressive due to the multidirectional circles along with the soft and flexible rubber. This traction surface worked very well on clean indoor courts as well as dusty indoor courts and would probably work well outdoors as well.

Cushion – Again, this is something I went over previously and it’s pretty much a no brainer… cushion wasn’t great. In the video review I show an insole that could help but you can use any insole you feel would work best for you and it would be a huge improvement.

Material – Full leather uppers and a rubber midsole and outsole add some sturdiness as well as weight. They aren’t heavy per say but it is something you do notice while transitioning. The main thing is that the type of leather used allows for added strength and durability which can be a nice feature to have.

Fit – The heel offered excellent lockdown as did the midfoot. With more time spent on-court you will start to notice the fit loosening up due to the moisture and heat buildup so with that I did have to readjust the lacing after every game or so.

Ventilation – Not much of any but there are perforations featured on the toe as well as a nylon tongue for some ventilation, even if just a little.

Support – None… you can purchase an insole with arch support if needed but other than that they are pretty much a flat based sneaker.

Overall – These were playable, which is the main thing. If you wanted the look or styling of an Air Jordan I with modern tech you can either swap the insoles out for cushion or opt to purchase the Air Jordan 1 royal for sale which offers many upgrades in every category, most notably the cushion with its Phylon midsole and full length bottom loaded Zoom Air.

Now… onto the Air Jordan II!

Traction – 9.5/10
Cushion – 6/10 (there is an Air unit in the heel so that deserves at least a 1)
Material – 7/10
Fit – 7.5/10
Ventilation – 6/10
Support – 8/10

Overall – 8/10
