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

air jordan 13 retro 2017 reviews and story

Le 31 aout 2017 à  05:01
Rubriques : Air Jordans

Traction – I’ll admit I was disappointed with the traction at first. It just wasn’t as awesome as I remembered it being with the Original and first round Retro releases. However, if you stick with it… the traction will break-in and give you plenty of coverage on the court. Lateral movements and front to back coverage are plentiful yet offer little restriction with movements – thanks to the much lower profile as opposed to the Air Jordan XII.

After nearly a week’s worth of playing, the traction was just as I remembered it being back in the day.

Cushion – Heel and forefoot Zoom Air cushion. It’s responsive, resilient and comfortable. No, it’s not quite as springy as the Air Jordan XII but as I mentioned above, you have much better court feel with the lower profile so you can pretty much have whatever ride you see fit – between the AJ XII and XIII.

On a personal level, I liked the feeling of the XII more but the lower profile ride of the Air Jordan XIII… I can’t have everything.

 

Material – The materials aren’t too great but they could be worse. At least the PU coated leather breaks in nicely – more than I can say for other models like the recent White/ Cement Air Jordan 4. My main gripe with PU coated leather is that the coat can be unpredictable. At times its durable as hell while other times it peels away from the leather as its bond to the glue is much stronger than the bond to the split grain leather.

The overall durability is still there it’s just that you will have sections that look like sole separation – which this isn’t… trust me, I know the difference. You can play in these like this just fine as I have been but it’s disappointing to see more than anything. If you choose to play in the most recent releases then this shouldn’t happen as those have slightly better quality.

 

Fit – These fit true to size while the most recent feel like they have a lot of dead space in the toe. Anything released from 2012 to the present time I would go ½ size down for a snug fit. If you wish to remain with your regular size and you feel that there is too much space, just put an additional insole in the shoe and you should be fine.

Lockdown is awesome, plain and simple. After a short break-in period the leather will soften up a bit. Once you readjust your laces then your foot won’t be going anywhere.

 

Ventilation – There isn’t any… I actually had sweat bleeding through to the red suede some nights. Doesn’t bother me at all but those who require well ventilated shoes… you won’t find it here.

 

Support – Overall support is great. The Carbon Fiber adds torsional support and minor arch support – those with high arches usually will require the use of orthotic inserts.

The fit its great and provides plenty of support and the base is nice and wide which does take some getting used to but once you adjust, you’ll be busting moves with more confidence than before.

 

Overall – 15 years later and these are just as fierce on the court as they were before. The Air Jordan XII and XIII are forces to be reckoned with on-court. There are some minor setbacks in terms of material quality but for the most part I think these still performed just as good as some of today’s sneakers.

The Way of Wade played pretty similar when I think about it… and I really liked those.

air jordan 14 retro performance reviews

Le 30 aout 2017 à  05:51
Rubriques : NIKE LEBRON 14

They went from black cats to fast cars… both are beasts in their own right.

Traction – Herringbone is in place and this time around it doesn’t ensure great traction. The grooves aren’t as peaked/ sharp as other herringbone patterns so it isn’t able to bite the floor as well. Consistent wiping of the outsoles will be required – unless you play on pristine floor conditions – in order to achieve optimal traction. Surprisingly, the Air Jordan XIV’s traction worked very well outdoors so that’s a plus.

Cushion – Originally, the Air Jordan XIV featured heel Zoom Air and forefoot Articulated Zoom Air. The heel unit hasn’t changed at all but the forefoot is now a basic Zoom unit and they’ve been slimmed down a bit since their last Retro release. These aren’t quite as cushioned as they once were but they still get the job done. One thing to note is that the midsole is pretty low profile so court feel is enhanced a bit as there is less material between your foot and the floor. I personally still prefer the way they used to feel but this is the way Nike makes their ‘basic’ Zoom Air units now so we just have to deal with it.

Material – The leather is nice but the nubuck used isn’t. Luckily there is more leather than nubuck so you can sort of ignore it a bit. Air Jordan XIV’s aren’t known for being the most durable – the upper will last just fine – as the foam teeth located at the forefoot tend to take a lot of damage and even separate from the toe box. This isn’t something I’ve experienced on this pair – didn’t play in them long enough – but it will happen overtime. If you wanted a Retro to last then the Air Jordan XII is the one you’ll want to look at, these will last a season just fine but anything afterward is a crap shoot.

Fit – They fit true to size and the leather will stretch a bit so if you have wide feet that aren’t extremely wide then you may want to try to break them in versus going up 1/2 size. Lockdown at the midfoot was perfectly fine for me, it was the heel that had some sloppiness to it. The collar has an asymmetrical design to it that was supposed to be better fitting around the ankle while providing support – this works for the most part – but the heel piece is too high and ends up pushing against the ankle instead of cupping it. Its a minor setback but one that was bothersome. It definitely brings greater appreciation to small modifications found in ‘modern’ footwear – LeBron X Elite collar is a pretty good example of a great fitting ankle collar.

Ventilation – As with nearly every single pair of Air Jordan’s, the ventilation isn’t great. However, Tinker did implement an air vent into the shoe which was always a really cool – albeit stupid – feature in my mind when I was younger. This means two things… 1. ventilation isn’t good in the XIV & 2. ventilation is an attribute that was and currently still is a focal point for performance footwear 2017.

Support – Torsional support is abundant with the enlarged TPU shank plate in place but the lack of proper heel lockdown prevents complete support. Luckily the shoe is fairly low to the ground and has a stable/ flat base so support doesn’t suffer too greatly.

Overall – I personally love playing in these. Always have and always will. The main thing I dislike about this Retro version is the lack of quality from the nubuck and the lack of cushion when directly comparing them to their previous releases. Other than that, these are still very playable on-court and I wouldn’t mind using them as an outdoor shoe at all. If these suit your needs as a player then there is no reason to shy away from them for those that wish to have some style while on-court.

air jordan 5 retro performance reviews

Le 29 aout 2017 à  06:21

Hit the jump for more…

Traction – Front to back, the herringbone worked perfectly fine. Dust and debris will slightly hinder overall performance of the traction – due to the translucent rubber – but if you are able to keep up with consistent wiping you should be alright.

I stated this in the 1st Performance Teaser; the heel gave me some slight slippage when in transition. Mostly when curling around screens, running fast breaks & driving by the opposing player at an angle. It’s something that even I couldn’t change… couldn’t quite adapt to the issue very well so I wish there would have been less smooth surface along the heel and more herringbone to possibly prevent the issue from occurring too often.

Cushion – Pretty much the same setup as the Air Jordan 3 & 4; featuring a heel & forefoot Air unit along with a Polyurethane midsole. The midsole will start off fairly stiff but soon breaks in over time, something that I had not experienced with the Air Jordan 3  or 4 . Forefoot cushion – while available – is lower to the ground so if you aren’t used to playing in sneakers that have you sitting roughly an inch above ground then you will want to give yourself time to adjust.

Material – Materials on this colorway require practically no break-in time. However, they get softer as you play so it’s less supportive as time goes by. If you choose to play in a pair I’d recommend wearing a pair with the split grain leather uppers as they’ll offer up much more durability & support.

Fit – The fit was a hit and miss in most areas. While the midfoot fit is fine – also offers two ways to lace up your shoes for greater midfoot lock down if needed – the heel and forefoot are a bit sloppy… mainly the forefoot. Even going down ½ size you will receive a sloppy forefoot fit but the heel may improve a bit with less room from front to back. With a sloppy fit comes slight hesitation upon your movements and that can cost you a few milliseconds… which counts when you have your opponent beat yet you lose your advantage due to an interior forefoot issue such as slipping.

Ventilation – Much like the Air Jordan 4, the Air Jordan 5 offers ventilation on both side panels & tongue. While the rubber mesh layered on top will slightly restrict air flow, it’s not horrible and shouldn’t be too big of an issue… especially seeing as how most performance models in this era lacked ventilation so in comparison the Air Jordan 5 was probably one of the most well ventilated shoes at the time.

Support – Again, just like the past Air Jordan models, there isn’t much support. There is a molded arch and a thin internal heel counter – what it’s made of I do not know – so that’s pretty much all the support you will get. If the upper features leather versus the nubuck you will receive a bit more support from a material standpoint than you would from this particular pair.

Overall – Still a great shoe from its time. Not a complete upgrade from the Air Jordan IV – in my opinion – but they were headed in the right direction going into the 90’s. If you were to play in a pair of kd 10 for sale.  I’d definitely recommend going with a pair featuring leather along the upper versus the nubuck for some additional strength and support.

Air Jordan 12 Retro Performance reviews

Le 28 aout 2017 à  03:20
Rubriques : Air Jordans

A whole bunch of new performance models came out between December-February… now that they’re out of the way. Lets get back to the Air Jordan Project.

Traction – Herringbone is featured in similar fashion to the previous Air Jordan signature – the Air Jordan 14 . The phrase, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” comes to mind as they haven’t changed much so it works relatively the same. I only had one issue where I slipped and that was within the first few hours at the medial ball of the foot… make sure you plant your feet and push off from the base of the shoe – if you are light on your feet – as I was at the time – then the rounded edges of the outsole will serve you no purpose and you will likely slip or lose balance. After I figured out what I was doing wrong, I never had an issue with the traction again.

Cushion – Full length Zoom Air… from heel to toe. The Zoom unit is one continuous air bag and feels amazing! They are comfortable enough wearing casually but you won’t experience what these can truly do until you play in them. I say this all the time but I really do mean it… you gain more appreciation for a shoe after you’ve played in them – when they perform well that is. I already loved the Air Jordan 12 for sale based on its looks but that fact that they can handle practically anything you can throw at them made me love them even more.

If you are looking for a hoop shoe that has low profile, responsive cushion then look no further as the Air Jordan XII will meet and possibly exceed your expectations. You will get over their initial clunky feeling after you give yourself some time to adjust but after that you will fall in love with them all over again.

Material – The originals used premium full grain leather and these newer Retro models use a split grain. It’s not as nice as they used to be but when directly comparing the leather here to a split grain that was used on say, the Air Jordan IV White/ Cement Retro… these are leaps and bounds better. Just like the midsole, you will need to break these in a bit in order to start enjoying them. It doesn’t take too long since there is practically zero ventilation so your body’s heat and moisture will speed up the process.

Fit – I felt this Retro fits true to size but the newer ones released in 2012 feel a ½ size big after being broken in. If you double sock or use an additional insole you will be able to solve the sizing issue if you choose not to go down ½ on Jordan Brand’s latest Retro run. If you are looking at something that was released prior to 2012 then I would say go with your regular size.

Midfoot and heel lockdown were great. I never once had an issue after they broke in. As expected with leather based sneakers, the leather will stretch a bit after they’ve been broken in. All you have to do to fix the additional space you’ll receive is tie them tighter – what I call adjusting the laces – and you will be good to go.

Ventilation – There really isn’t any. Some mesh was used on the tongue but it isn’t anything that provides you with air flow. The lack of ventilation will aid you in breaking the shoe in so not all is lost. If you feel that ventilation isn’t an attribute that you look for in a shoe then ignore this section, simple as that. No need to whine about it affecting a shoes score in a negative way as ALL of the shoes tested are graded in ventilation which makes things perfectly fair.

Support – Tanks… the Air Jordan 12 are on-court tanks. Arch support is great while the overall fit and lockdown take care of the rest. These can – and have been – be worn by a wide variety of players and positions so the Air Jordan XII has something for everyone.

Overall – These are one of my favorite performers out of the Retro line so far… these and the Air Jordan VIII. Both of which comes as a surprise to me since they are both probably the two models I would look at and think that they aren’t too Guard friendly.

If you need a shoe with Retro style, great traction, awesome cushion, good materials, nice fit and plenty of support then the Air Jordan 12 Bordeaux 2017 will give you what you need. It’s nice to see – and feel – evolution and the Air Jordan XII is just that. The Air Jordan line evolved quite a bit in a short amount of time… that’s pretty incredible… especially seeing as how the Air Jordan 12 can outperform some of today’s performance models.

Air Jordan XXX Performance Reviews

Air Jordan XXX Performance Reviews

Yes, one aspect of a shoe can ruin the entire experience.

Traction

Taking the shoe to the hardwood for the first time was a great experience as far as traction is concerned. They stuck like glue. But as I wore the shoe more, the traction continually wore down as the topcoat of rubber lost its stickiness due to dust building up. If you want to know what type of performance you’ll receive from the outsole, just check the condition of the floor – It solely depends on how much dust is present. On pristine court conditions, these things stick like glue, while on other courts with average amounts of dust, they are mediocre. When I took them to extremely dusty courts, just forget about it, you’ll be slipping all over the place. To keep it simple, the traction on the Air Jordan XXX for sale was one of the most disappointing parts of the shoe. Jordan Brand has been going in the wrong direction since the XX8 from the outsoles’ perspective – Let’s just hope they can improve on the XXXI.

Cushion

The Air Jordan 30 features the exact same tooling as its predecessor, the Air Jordan XX9 – Unlocked forefoot zoom with nothing in the heel. With that being said, there is one minor tweak to their cushioning. In the XX9, a TPU cage surrounded the entire midsole while in the XXX, the plastic only surrounds the forefoot. With the TPU being removed, the shoe features a smoother heel to toe transition, but as a player that rarely stikes on his heel, I scarcely noticed a difference in the overall performance of the cushion. Chris mentioned that he had some issues with the stability in the heel due to the softness of the foam, but I think that will depend on what type of player you are. If you’re like me and very seldom strike with your heel, then you won’t have any issues.

Materials

The materials are a modified version of what was found on the Air Jordan XX9. Performance woven or “jacquard” is found along the upper once again, this time in a much more thin fashion. Personally, I preferred the premium feel that was given by the woven on the XX9, but I can’t complain with this set up either. One thing that I disliked was the addition of the overlay in the toe box. It was there to provide extra structural support and prevent the material from tearing – It surely did that. When I’m hooping, I prefer to have softer materials throughout the entire shoe. If Jordan Brand could have shrunk the overlay material to the very edge of the shoe (like the crazy light boost 2015), then I would have enjoyed it much more. There simply isn’t a need for that much structural support.

As we transition to the rear of the shoe, the Jordan XXX all star features flyknit in the collar area. This was by far the worst part of the shoe – At least for the first three weeks of play. The extra padding in the heel was very flimsy, causing discomfort and blistering. I was forced to bring multiple shoes to the gym while wear testing the Air Jordan XXX because my feet simply couldn’t take two straight hours of play in them. That’s how much discomfort the heel notches generated. The pain did go away after three weeks of break in time, but the extended break in period ruined the entire experience.

Fit

Other than the discomfort in the heel, the fit is absolutely phenomenal. Similar to the Jordan XX9 low, the forefoot fits very snug. Wide footers might not like that, but I love the containment that the shoe offers. Lace loops form as eyelets and help provide the same snug fit in the midfoot area. The addition of flyknit really does a nice job of wrapping around your footwear shoes  in the collar area, but as I previously stated, the heel notches cause so much discomfort that the shoe is nearly unwearable during the break in period. All being said, the fit is more than adequate once they are broken in.

Note: their score will be reduced due to the extended break in time.

Support

The support, similar to the fit, was superb with the exception of the heel notches. Most of the support comes from the containment provided by the fit. Due to the fit being slightly improved from the XX9, the support is also marginally better. There is also a small outrigger in the forefoot that does its job, and the carbon fiber piece that was found in the XX9 is replaced with plastic featuring the cosmos print. In addition, they feature Jordan Brands’ flight speed system to add some torsional support. It’s supportive enough for a big man, but flexible enough for a guard. Absolutely nothing to complain about here.

Overall

Although I wish there was some tech in the heel of the midsole, the flight speed system is still amazing and the unlocked zoom feels great. The performance woven upper is more thin, but still is one of the best uppers on the market right now. But as you can probably tell, the heel notches ruined the entire experience for me. Sure, the traction could’ve been improved as well, but it wasn’t a deal breaker – the heel was. All of our KD10sale.com have agreed on one thing; how in the world did these get approved during the testing process? Oh well, on to the XXXI.

Nike Zoom Venomenon 5 Performance Review

Le 23 aout 2017 à  06:07
Rubriques : Air Jordans

Improved upon since the last model, which is always a good thing.

Traction – These have excellent traction. Surprising too since the pattern is pretty random. The Kobe Venomenon 5 series is an outdoor specific shoe overseas, but I’m not sure if that’s the case with the U.S. version. There was nothing stating that these feature XDR outsoles, and Nike will always let you know when they use a certain type of material as it’ll usually be labeled somewhere on the product or come with a hang tag with the material labeled. So while the traction was pretty awesome – indoors & outdoors – the rubber is softer than you’d expect with an outdoor shoe so I wouldn’t recommend them to someone that plays on a rough outdoor surface, but if you play on a court with a smooth blacktop finish like a tennis court then you’ll be good.

Cushion – Bottom loaded Zoom Air located in the heel and forefoot… not my favorite setup. It works well for what it is, but you don’t really feel anything since there is a midsole between your foot and the cushion. The good news is that it absorbs impact upon impact, and you’ll have a slightly more ‘responsive’ ride in terms of reaction speed, but the downside is that a bottom loaded setup is best when utilized full length in order to absorb as much impact as possible. Even when using tiny Hex-Zoom units like in the LeBron 12, they’re placed from heel to toe so you have a decent amount of protection. Same when it comes to something like the Air Jordan 2010 which opted for the full length option. So while they get the job done, the cushion is nothing to gawk at. It would have been awesome if the Zoom was bottom loaded and the midsole was Lunar, but I didn’t make the shoe so that obviously didn’t happen. I will say that this is definitely an improvement over the Venomenon 4, so in that sense… its a plus.

Materials – I absolutely love the materials. Mesh and wovens are the new thing, and they’re something I thoroughly enjoy when utilized properly. If you you’ve played in the HyperRev 2015 and enjoyed their upper then you’ll likely enjoy these as well. They’re soft, flexible, require no break-in time, breathable and contain the foot well enough. It is a mesh though, so durability won’t be their strongest attribute. But if you prioritize the attributes I just mentioned above durability then you’ll be happy with them.

Fit – They fit true to size, and wide footers will want to try them on. They have that ‘perfect’ fit for my foot, so you might think they’re too snug if you have a wider footwear shoes . Forefoot and midfoot lockdown was really solid. Dynamic Flywire is located at the forefoot for some additional coverage so you don’t put too much strain on the mesh material, and the external heel counter offers great heel lockdown. Transition is a bit clunky due to the heel counter, but if you stay on your toes for the most part then you might not notice it too much. If you heel strike then you’ll feel the chunkiness that I’m talking about.

Support – They remind me of the Kobe 8 and Kobe 9 EM in terms of support. There is just enough to where you’re not as risk of injury, but not too much to where you’ll feel restricted. The heel counter is the only area that I’d change due to the clunky transition it causes. I’d have used a heel clip like what the Kobe 8 used, I think that would’ve allowed the heel to compress a bit more upon heel strikes. Other than that they’re solid. Internal shank, solid TPU heel counter and a forefoot lateral outrigger. Everything you’ve come to expect in one of Kobe’s main signature models, but in a more affordable package.

Overall – I actually like these a little more than the Kobe X’s. I enjoyed the materials much more, and the traction, while not quite Kobe 11 for sale level, are capable of being used indoors and outdoors – even without the use of XDR. Cushion was much better in the X’s, but for $120 the Venomenon’s do just fine. Once again, I ended up enjoying the take down model a little more than the signature model… there are some things I’d change here and there, but overall they’re a great option for their price. Especially if you wanted a Kobe model for indoor and outdoor use. http://www.kd10sale.com

NIKE HYPERDUNK 2017 FLYKNIT PERFORMANCE REVIEW

Le 11 aout 2017 à  03:04
Rubriques : Air Jordans

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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