Air Jordan 1 Banned VS Chicago,Which is better?

Le 8 février à  08:42
Rubriques : Air Jordans

As two kinds of popular sneakers of Air  Jordan, Air Jordan 1 Banned and the Air Jordan 1 Chicago , which is better ?

So let us look the details as below :

Jordan Brand unveils this insane Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Homage To Home” Sample that combines the famed “Banned” and “Chicago” colorways into one cohesive sneaker. The shoes are split down the tongue, with the “Banned” color owning the lateral side and the “Chicago” on the medial. This may remind you of the Air Jordan 1 “Quai 54” Friends and Family that was revealed during the big event in Paris.

jordan Brand is bringing the correct heat to the green with the release of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High Golf Shoe. We first saw a similar sample leaked by MJ’s son Marcus, but with official images now live, it appears that a release is near – potentially closer to late Spring. This familiar “Chicago” colorway has some differences from the basketball original, like the “Nike” Wings logo, the larger Jumpman on the tongue, and of course, the new outsole fit for the green.

With the Retro prices at an all-time high, consumers have stopped consuming most Retro releases on Saturday in hopes that they grab a grail, or strike it big with a Retro that will fetch them a high resell profit. That shoe looks to be the ‘Banned’ Air Jordan 1, even though Jordan Brand has proven that it will release the shoe every 3 or so years.

However ,   Air Jordan 1 Chicago also  become the most popular  shoes since it released .To the uninitiated, they may look like the same shoe. Ask the average sneakerhead, and they'll tell you the difference is the midsole — the 1.5 "The Return" swaps the original rubber tooling for the Air Jordan 2's polyurethane setup. But take a closer look and you'll find that that's only the beginning.

So which one will  you choose ?

This Day Talk About Nike Air Force 1 Reviews and history

Le 6 février à  02:27
Rubriques : Air Jordans

To this day, the only pair of shoes that I’ve ever cleaned at least once a week is the Nike Air Force 1. Although it’s been a while since I copped a fresh set of these kicks, there really is nothing quite like the feeling you get from sliding your feet into a brand new all-white pair of the AF1. Well, until they get dirty at least.

It was in 1982 that Nike designer Bruce Kilgore dialed up his creative mojo and developed one of the most iconic products in the history of fashion itself. It’s world renowned fame is so focused off the court that its origins as a high performance basketball shoe is hardly known by the vast population who wear them daily. It was after all the first basketball shoe to have a bag of air inserted into the heel for on-court cushion and support, which has obviously become of Nike’s staple concepts with Zoom Air and Air Max technologies having followed since. If you didn’t already know, aren’t you a bit surprised?

Legendary poster of the first six.
Having basketball roots, these kicks were definitely represented well through six old school players in Moses Malone, Michael Cooper, Jamaal Wilkes, Mychal Thompson, Bobby Jones, and Calvin Natt as they were selected to embody the six original symbolisms of the shoes (heroic/consistent/dominant/courageous/constant/pure). To commemorate 25 years of excellence for the AF1 in 2007, Nike revived and expanded this concept by creating “The Second Coming” campaign that featured the NBA’s top dogs (at the time) in Shawn Marion, Rasheed Wallace, Steve Nash, Amare Stoudemire, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, Paul Pierce, Jermaine O’Neal, and Tony Parker to endorse the Air Force XXV, a shoe that was made to pay homage to the original AF1.

Okay, now, let’s get to the shoe itself. The Air Force 1 generally features a leather upper with a full rubber outsole. Right above the midsole, we see single-line stitching, which also rests above the “AIR” logo on the heel end. The Swoosh logo is on both the medial and lateral sides of the shoe which itself, is constructed of multiple panels that are all stitched together. With well over 1,700 different models in nearly 30 years of existence, the AF1 has seen more than its fair share of colorways and material combinations with certain specialty pairs even going for as much as $2000.

Circa 2007.
Bottom line, the Nike Air Force 1 isn’t so much about the quality, which is exceptional with high quality comfort and cushioning, as it is about cultural style and substance. While there are low-top, mid-top, and high-top versions, I am personally a fan of the lows because like I said in the beginning, there’s just something about a new clean pair of all-white AF1’s that always devour my senses. These nike kd 10 blinders  are undoubtedly an all-time classic that boys and girls from all over the world have rocked at school, church, on the street, or at the park – and that includes you.

Even so, it’s been a few years since I’ve bought myself a new pair due to the maintenance factor because frankly, I don’t have much time to spare towards cleaning my shoes. I must say though, talking about them is kind of making me want a new pair so “I can get to stompin’ in my Air Force Ones” ala Nelly.

And just in case you’re wondering how insanely cemented these kicks are into the fabric of our globe’s street wear culture, the Clot x nike air force 1 premium white rake in an estimated $800 mil a year in the U.S. alone. Yes, they’re that special.

Scope the commercial for “The Second Coming” that features some of the NBA’s top superstars as they engage in a little “friendly competition”.

Better Air Jordan 3: “We The Best” Or “Black Cement”

Le 5 février à  04:25
Rubriques : Air Jordans

Jordan Brand brings back the iconic Air Jordan 3 Black Cement to celebrate the model’s 30th Anniversary, which will also included Nike Air heels. For the occasion, we put them up against DJ Khaled’s highly demanded Air Jordan 3 We The Best rendition.

Designed by DJ Khaled himself and his closest friends. This Air Jordan 3 comes dressed in a Red leather upper with elephant print overlays completed with “We The Best” on the heels.

The Air Jordan 3 Red  by DJ Khaled is highlighted with Red tumbled leather throughout the uppers while the traditional perforations land on the tongue. Following we have elephant print which wraps the toe and heel. The Jumpman branding is done in White while Black accents are seen on the midsole and bottom eyelets. On the heel we have ‘WE THE BEST’ while on the inside of the heel tab reads #GREATFUL, #WeTheBest, and #stillinthemeeting.

the Air Jordan 3 “Black Cement” released was back in 2011, which didn’t included Nike Air branding. This 2018 Retro marks the first time it will be retroed with its original branding since 2001.

Dressed in a Black, Cement Grey, White and Fire Red color scheme. This Air Jordan 3 comes complete with classic Nike Air branding at the heel and outsole, along with Fire Red tongue lining, a signature seen on the colorway to complete the legendary look for the “Black Cement” 3s. The Air Jordan 3 Black Cement is officially set to release on Michael Jordan’s birthday, February 17th during NBA All-Star Weekend.

Even though DJ Khaled’s Air Jordan 3 never released to the public, if you had an opportunity to purchase either pair, which would it be?

Comparison 2018 vs. 2011 for Air Jordan 3 “Black Cement”

Le 30 janvier à  02:47
Rubriques : Air Jordans

The Air Jordan 3 “Black Cement” is a black and grey version of Michael Jordan’s third signature shoe. It originally released in 1988, followed by 1994, 2001, 2018, and 2011 featuring a mix of leather, elephant print, and visible Air. The shoe releases again with Remastered OG “Nike Air” branding on Michael Jordan’s birthday, February 17th, 2018 for $200 in celebration of the sneaker’s 30th Anniversary. Read the articles below for further release details and price information.

We are 22 November 2011 and today is the big day out of the Air Jordan 3 Black Cement, one of the most sneakers known and recognized. We were also often asked if this 2011 version was competitive with the retro of 2018, after the pack CDP 3/20 (the latter being more easily found and ‘affordable’). So we are often told that over the years the retro lose enormously in quality, 2018jordans.com helps us to take stock of this release and therefore whether it is better to let go a few dollars more on the 2018 or 2011 proccurer this version. SneakersAddict present you, in French, this roundup. So sit back, relax and enjoy!

Like many recent retros, we note that the colors are not met (we think of the gray cement IV white / cement). The III Black / Cement is no exception, we note a varsity red darker than the 2018 that it was very close to OG version. This notable are on the inner cover of the sneaker, of the tongue and Jumpman. This is unfortunate, but the difference is not so obvious is true condition (in real life, on your feet).

Regarding the placement of the label, the 2011 (left) is more consistent with the range by putting Jordan on the inside of the tongue, unlike the 2018 version that hides in the inner side of the sneaker.

To counterbalance the darker red varstity of 2011, Jordan Brand to put an Elephant print in black slightly less intense. But this was done out of concern for color balance and does not jump in the eyes.

For insole .The 2018 version was released for the 23 th anniversary of Jordan 3 sneakers, so she has a special insole far enough from the OG. The 2011 version is much more simple and standard.

For the silhouette .The 2011 version (like the white cement and true blue) sees her figure slightly redesigned with a slightly larger overall appearance and a tongue that dates back earlier than 2008, it is also slightly wider. And on the tongue, it’s not a bad thing, given that Jordan is doing with the tab visible.

For the padding of the tongue.Here you will find that the tongue is much more padded on the 2018 version (2nd image) than the 2011 version. Jordan Brand explained to us at the exit of the white Cement 2011 that this change gave more freedom to move the anchor to those who would wear during a game of basketball

For the Conclusion.This 2011 version has against it a slightly darker red varsity, a slightly more massive. For the rest there is no real difference strong enough to justify the extra Euros required for CDP 2018 Jordans version. Jordan Brand has done a great job on this 2011, then go ahead darken, it is on sale now in all good dairies advised to take € 155. Another big thank you for this great comparative 2018jordans.com and these wonderful pictures

UA Curry 4 White Gold Performance Review

Le 25 janvier à  03:19
Rubriques : Air Jordans

I have been very fond of Under Armour Curry 4 White Gold, and I've been played from Curry 2, 3, 3 Zero, and it's really a good line for the shooting guard. Under Armour Curry 4 swept the market with new material and colorway  become the most popular colorway in this year .   also a limited edition and  for the colorway of platinum  is also limited, good luck that I got one .So today we are talking about it .

Steph Curry had one of his best two-game stretches of the season, dropping 35 points in the Warriors’ come-from-behind victory against the 76ers and then putting up 39 points against the Nets last season. The two-time MVP laced up the Under Armour Curry 4 “White Gold” silhouette while doing so – the same shoe he wore during Game 5 of last year’s NBA Finals.

Under Armour  released “Championship Pack” and  this model of the Curry 4 comes adorned in white with hints of gold to represent the sharp-shooting point guard’s championship winning ways.

For the material : Sitting atop the knit is a synthetic leather overlay that adds a little bit of reinforcement to the minimally structured shoe  with white with hints of gold .

Socks designed of Curry 4 White Gold have been less the supporting which is the upper vamp woven materials with a very thin layer of artificial leather. As long as the right size , then fit on foot is very perfect, just like a new layer of skin on the feet as comfortable socks part can't be too hard on the heels of a rear foot.For me ,this setup has proven to be effective on-court while remaining durable. The synthetic breaks in very nicely and mimics leather in a way that I hadn’t expected

The design of anti rollover is also as prominent as the previous generations. The shoe sole has a good ability to resist twisting, but it seems to have omitted the TPU of the heel. Is it just a small one? It makes me a bit puzzled because of the price of shoes actually higher .

for the ;ave system , it is perfect . but actually it is need long time when  you  in the court . we need 20 minutes to loose !!!

For the traction : Herringbone is missing from the Curry line for the very first time, and while we love our herringbone, it wasn’t actually missed.

Frankly, the grip makes me unbelievable. I don't know whether the court  or dry in winter, I often wear Curry 4 slip, hold the floor, with other Curry series of past me through a completely different, and I heard the other 4 through Curry. The former Curry sneakers were skidding, I played well, and this time it slipped .

It really makes me feel a little disappointed in the shoes. After all, Curry 's grip is almost the top.The spiral pattern put in place offers multi-directional coverage for any move performed at any time.Of course I feel with the cold weather may also have a little relationship, may also be the color of the platinum crystal bottom very easily stained with dust, every kick the ball with a wet paper towel and gently rub on the soles are black, dust inside the lines especially difficult to clean up.

For the fitting , I think it small a half of size , I bought the size as usually 44 yards (other brands most is 43), for the wider ,we suggested you can buy more a  half yards, .

For the cushioning : the cushioning of Curry 3 and 3.5 are not too bad. After getting the Curry 4, it was hard for the first time in the court ,  but the whole is still hard. It is similar to Curry 2, but it may be a bit harder.
The strange thing is that the Curry 4 does not flaunt any cushioning technology, which I do not understand, star is somehow a little generation of shoe gimmick ah, a cushioning technology are not seem justified? Although Charged is not a perfect shock mitigation scheme, it is still enough at least. The slow shock of Curry 4 is really for the flooring ball or the shooter, and I don't think it's to enough.

What I like most about the Curry 4’s midsole tooling is that it offers a minimal setup and the shoe owns it. The Curry 3 was super firm and thick for no reason. You rode high off the floor without the benefit of having a well-cushioned ride. That wound up making the 3 feel heavy and clunky underfoot. It was stable, but you can achieve greater stability by bringing yourself down to the floor — that will make you feel lighter on your feet and quicker.

This was not the case with the Curry 4 because what you see is what you get. I feel the perfect setup for these would have been this exact midsole setup with the addition of a Micro G insole; luckily, I still have a few of those stashed away from older UA models. That combination gives you a little more feedback from the foam insole while retaining all of the attributes the Curry 4 offers.

Overall,I have always liked the Curry series, in addition to the good grip, the design is also very suitable for the shooter play me. It is not easy to get a pair on the day of the limited platinum color matching, and the actual combat results are so unbearable. The original slow vibration is worse. It has been very good grip. I don't know if only the white gold color is weakened. Let alone the most fatal grinding problem. The Curry 4 feels like it should have come after the KD 10 . It provides a better fit, greater stability, and more control. These are all things the Curry 2 had going for it and it feels like these attributes roll over into the Curry 4 a bit more seamlessly than it had in the 3.

Nike Air Vapormax 2018 Performance Reviews

Nike Air Vapormax 2018 Performance Reviews

The new version goes even darker than the original, removing the hint of dark grey Flyknit is releasing this year .

Today we are talking about it .

it is used the Nike Vapormax Flyknit  technology as well . Nike Flyknit technology was inspired by feedback from runners seeking a shoe with the snug (and virtually unnoticed) fit of a sock.Nike introduced Flyknit in February 2012 . There are 5 years !!!the brand has released an infographic chronicling the lightweight sneaker tech’s complete history.

Nike in order to reach the  goal with teams of programmers, engineers and designers to create the technology needed to make the knit upper with static properties for structure and durability. Then the precise placement of support, flexibility and breathability—all in one layer—was refined. The result is a featherweight, formfitting and virtually seamless upper.

that is the history of Klynit technology. The technology has been introduced to the training, running, soccer, basketball and lifestyle releases.


For the Off-White Nike Air Vapormax 2018 , it is  utilized the Klynit which flexibility and breathability .  Id like it this material , especially for the summer  which hot day .

For the cushioning , some people said that it is not good ,incontinuity . But some people said that it is great for innovations.

The Nike Air VaporMax represents a new era in Nike innovation. “It’s changed our whole philosophy on how we design for Air,” says Cushioning Innovation Designer Zachary Elder. With the VaporMax, the designers wanted to truly capture the feeling of ‘running on air.’

yes , we can feel the running on the air even without any midsole or sockliner.It fill the sole with as much Air as possible, but with the VaporMax, the focus is on using the Air efficiently.

Some people said that the chushioning  is incontinuity, yes ,I also thought it will be . but seems it won't .

Carved-out sections of the sole help keep the shoe incredibly flexible and lightweight.

Rubber pods on the sole for durability

Air cushioning provides maximum impact protection from heel to toe. And the most important  is you still can’t feel the air transfer through each chamber.How amazing it is !

Overall , Nike Air Vapormax  is amazing for innovations, It is worth to buy it on newjordans2018.com

Air Jordan 5 White Cement Performance Review

We’ve seen it with two Air Jordan 4 retros and now we’ll be treated to the surprising return of the Air Jordan 5 White Cement  .

And today we are talking about Jordan 5 .

Air Jordan 5 White Cement featuring the premium Remastered look of a white leather base while Metallic Silver accents flank the midsole to match that reflective 3M tongue.

The clean look is the exact opposite of the more traditional ‘White Cement’,  and it become the popular  one in this year , but the 23 PE stitching remains while an icy outsole will make this pair pristine enough to shine during the warmer months.  and the material is amazing  , it is used the good  leather  which soft .and it will offer up much more durability it is nicely .

for the boxes ,it is nothing special .

For the cushioning , It is  utinized the  Air unit along with a Polyurethane midsole from the heel and forefoot . we can feel the bounce when playing and it is not too much longer time that I feel that .

we can see the  material in side .

we. can see the parts in this picture

Air Jordan 5 Reviews For the traction : it is used the  rubber traction and the herringbone worked perfectly , but I feel that  it will be a little slip in the  out-court . I hope that it can improve  next version.I am afraid that it  will brake when I  am running fast for the midsole .

For  the  supporting : I don't think it  better .There is a molded arch and a thin internal heel counter . we just can feel a little support from the upper . so we don't think it is great . we hope that it  will better for the next version .

Overall , the Air Jordan 5 ,The leather is very soft, but the tongue really thick, the ankle is equally comfortable, but poor ventilation . But the cushioning is great .

Nike Zoom LeBron 15 Performance Review

Le 19 janvier à  09:24
Rubriques : Air Jordans

It was about time I shared my Nike LeBron 15 Performance Review, so here are my thoughts.

15 years is a career in professional sports — unless you are LeBron James. If you haven’t noticed, he is having arguably the best statistical year of his career when most athletes are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

And he is racking up those numbers, for the most part, in the LeBron 15 Sale. The last few years have seen him wear mostly shoes from his Soldier line, so the 15 must be doing something right, right? Well, you know how we do…

Turf spikes for the hardwood — that’s really the best way to describe the pattern, and it is really a shame, because on dusty floor spikes don’t work.

For the first three days of testing I was on a severely unfinished wood floor at 24-hour Fitness (no clear coat at all). On quick lateral moves or curls for jumpers, while planting the lead foot, slides were impossible to stop no matter how much I wiped. Heel strike, toe strike, whatever — it was like the shoe was allergic to stopping.

On clean courts I had no problems at all. Stops were quick, directions were changed immediately, and all was right in the world. Still nowhere near the best, or even great, but it was good enough.

As for durability outdoors — I wouldn’t. Once the peaks wear off outdoors, the rubber will be quick to go, and then the Zoom Air unit will wear with the quickness. Better leave these for the indoor ball on clean courts.

Best. Zoom. Ever. I know I said that last year about the KD9 (I think), and a few years ago about Unlocked Zoom in the Air Jordan 28, but this is the stuff you dream about (what, you don’t dream about shoes and basketball? Just me?).

The huge Zoom units, blended with the Max Zoom in the heel, provide impact protection beyond anything not made of little white pebbles that still bounces back to provide responsiveness underfoot. The segmented units allow for a flex never felt in a 360° Zoom unit (or Air Max for that matter) and let the shoe roll underfoot — no stiffness here.

I was a little worried about the height of the midsole, and did actually feel the Zoom compress along the edges on hard drives and cuts to the rim, but a complete rollover never occurred, and again, all was good.

For a bigger player that puts some serious impact on his or her feet, this is almost a perfect setup. Smaller players who are lighter and shiftier, well, there is always the Kyrie or Curry line. If you are needing some intense impact protection because of age or injury, the LeBron 15 Black Gold will have your knees feeling, well, not so damaged.

Otherwise known as a really thick Flyknit, Battleknit sounds better — especially when dealing with an athlete like LeBron. The comfort is still there, the flexibility is freaking awesome, and the durability, so far, seems to be way better than past builds.

The thicker weave seen above is stronger and tighter in areas needing containment while over the foot there is more elasticity for better comfort and fit. This, seriously, is the best knit Nike has put on a basketball shoe.

Flywire cables run the lacing system and can be felt pulling the shoe around your foot. The pull tabs are leather and add a perfect contrast of old and new to the LeBron 15’s appearance.

Debate and discussion time. Some have said half size down because the knit stretches. Some have said half size up because the shoe fits snug. I say stay true to size because it just feels better to me.

The ankle area is stretchy and should accommodate even the widest of feet, and once inside, the padding from the Battleknit wraps perfectly around your foot without feeling restrictive. Because of the knit, all of the little differences in foot shape and bone structure are covered because the knit fills in the gaps. The heel stays locked in using the Flywire lacing. Midfoot and forefoot fit is rightonthefoot, but because of the knit there is no discomfort.

Length, for me, was perfect. In a 10.5, there was about an index finger width between my big toe and the end of the shoe. This fits right along with most other shoes I play in, including the Kyrie 4, Curry 4, and Jordan Zer0.1. This lets my feet have enough room to spread and push off on drives, and at the end of the day my feet just feel better.

It’s no secret LeBron needs support — dude is 6’8″ and around 265 pounds. He puts some serious torque on a shoe. A few years ago, Nike tried to keep up with him by adding Posite to the uppers, giving us the LeBron 11 through the 13, but if you remember, those didn’t stay on his feet very long (he went to the Soldier model more often than not).

What did the Soldier lack that the signature shoes did? Stiff uppers and Foamposite. The designers seemed to listen last year, so the LeBron 14 had a mesh upper and Flywire lacing. The LeBron 15 takes that thinking farther, and while the lateral support isn’t as contained as the LeBron 12, my foot never slid off the footbed.

Just trying on in the store, there was no way in my mind this shoe would be able hold on hard cuts. On court, the Battleknit held me down, but there was still a feeling of being uncontained that never had me feeling confident. The shoe still played great, but in my mind I kept thinking bad thoughts.

Another area that contributed to my evil inner thoughts was the cushioning. The Max Zoom sits extremely high and gives the shoe a tippy feeling. On two or three drives I did feel the edges of the Zoom buckle on lateral plants and even though the shoe didn’t roll, there was a sense of the midsole angling over and slowing me down. Again, I never completely rolled over, but the times I felt the movement it was a little scary.

Transition is serious, especially for a shoe and player of this size. The LeBron 15 looks huge on foot and it feels like a boot. The segmented Zoom and flexible midsole give the shoe a smooth feel in running and change of direction. The upper, again, is such a sock-like fit that there is no stiffness anywhere.

This may be the best playing LeBron shoe ever. Some will argue that the LeBron 10 is, and it was a classic, but the midsole was too stiff for a smooth transition because it was clunky.

The upper of the LeBron 15 and the comfort of Battleknit give it an obvious edge over the Posite series, and the Max Zoom is still the best blend of bounce and impact protection Nike has in its cushioning stable.

If you are looking for the absolute best Nike cushioning in basketball shoes that bleeds technology, the LeBron 15 is your ride. If you need a low-riding midsole with biting traction and a strait-jacket fit, you may want to skip this LeBron.
