  1. Where have the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 For fans of the adidas Yeezy 350 for sale, this Holiday season we have a large lineup set to take place. A total of three will launch known as the ‘Beluga 2.0’, ‘Blue Tint’ and ’Semi Frozen Yellow’. Looks like adidas will be changing around the months on these releases according to Yeezy Mafia. The adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Beluga 2.0’ will now release during December, the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ’Semi Frozen Yellow’ will now release during November, the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Blue Tint’ will still release during December. During October, something new will release instead of the ‘Beluga 2.0’. The adidas Yeezy PowePhase in ‘Black’ and ‘Grey’ will release either late December or early January. Once we have more information, we will make sure to update you. It’s possible that the ‘Red Night’ colorway will debut during October. 1.adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ’Semi Frozen Yellow’ The adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ’Semi Frozen Yellow’ is another Yeezy Boost 350 V2 that will release during November 2017. The brand new colorway is one of two releasing for the Holiday season. Although images have yet to leak of this upcoming adidas Yeezy 350 Boost V2, they will feature a Semi Frozen Yellow, Raw Steel and Red color combination. What you can expect is Primeknit used across the uppers along with Boost technology. The outsole is said to feature Gum. The adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Semi Frozen Yellow will release at select adidas Originals retailers on November 18th, 2017. 2.adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Blue Tint The adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Blue Tint’ is releasing for the Holiday 2017 season. Combing new colors for December, they are expected to be one of the last Yeezy 350 Boost V2 releases of the year. While we wait for a first look, here we have a mockup of what this adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 will look like. Featuring a Blue Tint, Grey Three and High Resolution Red color combination.

  2. Three Style Newest Nike PG 1 release date and reviews Since his late-2015 return to the court, George has steadily returned to the form he lost in his injury and proven himself worthy of a signature model as the Pacers fight for a playoff spot. His future as a Pacer, however, is uncertain. George’s contract was heavily rumored to be moved at the 2017 trade deadline, and speculation remains that he will be suiting up for a new team following his impending free agency. 1.Nike PG 1 UConn PE Release Date Nike Basketball has recently given the Connecticut Huskies men’s basketball team their own Nike PG 1 UConn PE which they will wear for their season opener which takes place this Friday, November 10th.

Nike PG 1 Reviews That means that by the time the Nike PG2 drops next year it may be launching in purple and yellow. But before we get ahead of ourselves though, it’s time find out if the first model in the series carries on the tradition of fantastic affordable signature models from Nike. Hover over the dots for a breakdown of how the Nike PG1 performs on-court. Traction – The Nike PG 1 features an interesting pattern that will serve you well on-court. This particular version of the shoe features translucent rubber, and while it’s better than what Nike Basketball has put out in the past, it still isn’t the best option. Why does Nike insist on using clear rubber? It’s mostly to showcase the technology within the shoe. However, upcoming colorways of the PG1 feature solid rubber — what I’d recommend over the translucent options — while highlighting the cushion within the midsole by changing the color of the rubber in that particular section. I believe that is the best route and I’m surprised Nike hasn’t done it sooner with so many complaints about the lack of tackiness its translucent rubber offers. The good news is that the pattern here really helps the rubber compound out and dust doesn’t stick to the pattern much. A quick wipe every so often will do the outsole good, and I’m almost positive that the solid rubber options will far exceed this version on-court. Cushion – Forefoot bottom loaded Zoom Air is what is offered in the PG1. This setup is for those that want a more responsive ride for greater reaction speed. You won’t sink into the cushion and you won’t feel it bounce back as you would if it were directly underfoot, but it gets the job done for the most part. At the heel it’s just Phylon so nothing special there. Some may feel the setup is a bit lackluster if they’re expecting an abundant amount of cushion, but if you are more into court feel then this will prove to be a worthy setup. Materials – This is one of the best material options we’ve had from Nike Basketball Shoes in a long time. It offers a little bit of everything, but not in a way that would make the shoe feel awkward or cluttered with tons of gimmicky materials. The forefoot is free feeling with the open mesh and it’s protected by a layer of fuse in the high wear areas. This is great for players that stay on their toes and do not enjoy breaking in shoes. Meanwhile, the rear panel, on this colorway, is made of nubuck and it feels like the good ‘ol days when nubucks and leathers were being used to construct a sneaker. The overall build feels good, looks good, and plays well. Can’t really ask for much more than that. Materials and fit on the Nike PG 1 are my favorite aspects of the sneaker. Speaking of fit… Fit – The PG 1 fits true to size. However, they are very snug — just the way I like it. The overall fit reminds me a bit of the Nike Kryie 3 White Green — one of the best fitting shoes I’ve ever worn — especially at the forefoot. And that’s before I even adjusted the strap. If you’re a wide footer then you may want to go up 1/2 size as the one-piece construction doesn’t offer much stretch once they’re on your foot. The PG1 isn’t perfect, but Nike deserves any success that comes with Paul George’s first signature model because the shoe is that good. It’s a great aesthetic design, is releasing in attractive colorways, and—most importantly—performs on a level that far exceeds its relatively low price tag. For $110, it’s hard to go wrong. Its cushioning and stability are top-notch, making it my favorite Nike of the season at any price.
  3. One of my favorite basketball shoes of 2017 is the Dame 4. It took the attributes that worked really well from the Dame 2 and 3 and carried them over to the 4 while reducing the bulk. It shows the lines refinement and fluid transition from one model to the next. Evolution, baby. Evolution! As mentioned in the Dame 4 performance review, the Bounce midsole felt lower than any of the previous iterations — which you can see here. You still ride inside of the midsole, but the bulk has been trimmed down. So, you receive support and containment from the midsole in key areas rather than the entire thing. That’s what made the midsole of the Dame 3 look so chunky; practically the entire top line rode above your foot wheres in the Dame 4 it’s much more precise. Cheap insole — standard adidas practice nowadays. If you ask those that have been wearing adidas models for the past 10 years what aspect the shoes have declined in it would be the insole. Yes, you can swap the insole out for your own — which is recommended to maximize comfort and fit — but the Three Stripes used to provide thick PU insoles that were heavenly. I can only imagine the comfort Bounce would offer coupled with those old PU insoles. Maybe we’ll get an insole upgrade from adidas eventually. For the time being, the standard insole wasn’t horrible, but it’s cheap and sticks out as the glaring overlooked item in an otherwise perfect package. Strobel board, standard in all footwear. Some shoes add an additional foam layer for extra comfort, something the Dame 4 could have used with the slimmed down and firmed up Bounce. Not a deal breaker by any means, just something to note. The torsional plate is interesting. I just reviewed a runner from Asics that featured a beefed up version of this. If you missed that video you can catch it here. I had wondered how something like what Asics offered would feel on-court, and while this is a much smaller version, it’s still fairly similar and offered ample torsional support. The forefoot is very thin. Bounce offered just enough cushion to make this a well balanced ride between court feel and protection. Meanwhile, the heel rides a bit higher. You can feel more of the bounce that Bounce offers here mostly due to its thickness and the holes placed throughout. These holes allow your weight and pressure to force the compression of the midsole more than it would without them. While you “squish” the foam down it’ll expand into the cored out sections and then bounce back. (This is what Nike should have done with React. It would have made that cushion setup much more forgiving.) This is a great shot of the Dame 3 and Dame 4 side by side. You can see the top layer of Bounce foam in the Dame 3 (above) that sits inside of the EVA midsole carrier. This makes me wonder if the Dame 4 midsole is completely Bounce or if Bounce was removed altogether — which I doubt — but it’s never out of the realm of possibilities. I think if adidas was caught removing tech from any of the lineup it has right now it could kill the momentum so, again, I doubt that’s what it did. It’s more likely that adidas firmed Bounce up and made it the entire midsole — which is how the shoe felt while playing in them. Here are the layers of the upper. This is a cool image that shows you each component within the upper. The main structure is the exterior layer while the middle lining and third layer of padding protect your foot from the more structured material. This view allows you to see what your foot sees. If it had eyes, of course. In between the structured outer layer and padded interior are the lace cables, much like Nike’s Flywire — except these cables were much stronger. I had wondered if the heel tab was connected to one of the lace cables when I first grabbed the Dame 4 but I couldn’t tighten any of the laces tight enough to move the pull tab. It’s nice to see that they are in fact connected. I just couldn’t notice a difference once on-foot. This is the outsole. Nothing to see here, other than it looks really cool with all those teeth at the heel. It’s very thin as well so wearing for outdoor hooping is something that you’ll do at your own risk while knowing it won’t be the most durable. That takes care of the breakdown on the adidas Dame 4 deconstruction. Another great job by the folks over at FastPass and it’s always awesome to learn everything you can about what your money buys you at newjordans2018.com
  4. Nike Kobe 9 Elite Performance test Traction – The best traction I’ve ever had has come from two shoes… the Air Jordan XX8 and the Air Penny 5. I can now add the Nike Kobe 9 Elite to that list. In fact, It’d be tied with the Air Jordan XX8 for that #1 spot. Yeah… its that freaking good. It must be a combination of the pattern itself and the thin rubber. You receive such a natural feeling when maneuvering that its almost as if you can feel the floor beneath your toes. Outdoor players will want to stay away from these as that thin rubber will likely wear out very quickly. How quickly? Wait here while I go grab my sneaker wear and tear calculator… Cushion – These feature the same system as the Kobe 11 . If you enjoyed the full length Lunarlon midsole then you’ll be pretty pleased here. If you bought any of the other Kobe 8 models that featured different cushion setups and foams then you can easily swap them out for a different/ custom ride. The greatest part is that you can use the LeBron 11 Lunarlon/ Zoom Air midsole in these bad boys so if low profile isn’t quite your thing then all you have to do is swap them out with the LeBron midsole and you’re good to go. Material – Flyknit, Fuse and some really sweet looking Carbon Fiber panels are the main materials used. Flyknit is abundant throughout and backed by a very thin TPU/ Fuse for some additional structure and support. Why would they use Flyknit if they were going to use Fuse? I don’t know… why would they use Engineered Mesh if they were just going to use Fuse? Obviously basketball and running have two different styles of movement. For added security the thin layer of Fuse was put in place to ensure the structural integrity isn’t compromised during play. Fit – As mentioned in their First Impression, there is a bit of dead space within the toe but I still would recommend going true to size. Length wise, everything fits fine, there just seems to be a bit of extra volume in these that I personally prefer to not have. LeBron would probably love how they fit whereas I prefer the snug fit from the LeBron 11. Speaking of the LeBron 14 for sale… you can use that midsole that I went over in the cushion section to help add a slight lift within the shoe thus taking up the dead space within. Were they horribly sloppy without the LeBron midsole? Not at all, quite the opposite… I just like how it feels when the shoe is touching my foot… makes me feel more secure. Lockdown is great throughout the shoe, especially in the heel… no, not because they are really high cut. Its because the Flyknit in that area fits like a sock so you have something that really hugs and contains without limiting any restriction. A high that plays like a low. I do feel the collar height is unnecessary as I achieve perfect lockdown from the third to last eyelet but for those that wish to enable their mental placebo… these will work well for that. Ventilation – Definitely not their strong suit. The tongue and toebox perforations are the only true points of ventilation. Its nothing horrible but its noteworthy for those that wish to have something a little more breathable. Support – Yes,they are ridiculously high… no, that’s not where their support comes from. Their fit, however, keeps your foot in place along the midfoot and heel which is exactly what helps support the foot upon movements. No shifting or sliding around within the shoe at all and the Carbon Fiber heel panels help ensure that no slipping will occur upon lateral movements. You’ll be able to play the way you want to while being very well protected from a support standpoint. What about the lack of shank plate? That was easier for me to describe visually so I go over that in the video above. Overall – I love playing in the Nike Kobe 9 Elite. They offer everything I personally want and need. Excellent traction, great cushion, nice materials with a supportive yet mobile fit and support for lateral movements. If you happen to want or need more cushion then that is an option, so long as you own a pair of LeBron 11’s. I would have loved to have seen these in a lower cut. A high top would have still been fine… just not this high since that’s just extra material that doesn’t need to be there. However, If you are able to get your hands on a pair then I highly recommend them. Last year the Air Jordan XX8 was my top shoe of the year ever since their February launch… history has found a way to repeat itself on newjordans2018.com…
  5. Each year a new signature Air Jordan model is released along with retro models and is the most popular sneaker in history. Today we share the three hot sale Jordan Brand lifestyle sneakers 1. Air Jordan 12 Dark Grey Hot Sale The Air Jordan 12 Dark Grey is a brand new colorway which will debut during the Fall season.this Air Jordan 12 comes dressed in a Dark Grey and Wolf Grey color combination.

  6. The Under Armour Curry 4 feels like the true successor to the Curry 2. YOU CAN FIND THE UA CURRY 4 AVAILABLE AT hoopjordan.com STARTING OCTOBER 27. Traction – Herringbone is missing from the Curry line for the very first time, and while we love our herringbone, it wasn’t actually missed. The spiral pattern put in place offers multi-directional coverage for any move performed at any time. Linear coverage is fantastic and lateral coverage is handled very well too. When dust is present the tackiness of the rubber compound used (on translucent outsole options) attracts dust like a magnet. Wiping will be very necessary if you happen to play on a poorly maintained court, but when you’re not wiping things are still able to stick until you have the time to clear things out. One of the courts I play on feels slick even after its been cleaned — it likely needs to be refinished — and the Curry 4 Warriors for sale was still able to hold its own. With the translucent playing so well on some terrible courts it makes me wonder how much more awesome solid rubber versions of the outsole will perform. If you aren’t using herringbone, use this. This was awesome. Cushion – Tech specs for the Curry 4 were released after I had recorded the video performance review. However, we still didn’t learn much about the cushion. All that we have been told is that UA is incorporating a proprietary foam compound for responsiveness underfoot. Whether or not this foam is Charged, a new form of Micro G, or something else entirely is still up in the air. However, I do know how the cushion felt underfoot and the best word I can use to describe it is minimal. Not quite Kyrie minimal, but minimal enough to allow for court feel and some minor impact protection. You can always swap out the insole for some additional coverage (I was fine with the stock insole) but this isn’t the shoe for people looking for cushioning. Much like the Curry models of the past, these are all about control, court feel, and stability. If these are attributes you require out of your shoes then you’re going to love how these play. Again, if you’re looking for something with a ton of cushion then these simply weren’t meant for you. What I like most about the Curry 4 low warriors yellow for sale 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. Materials – Threadborne looks to have been a one and done type of material from the Curry line because we now have a modern knit along the upper. Sitting atop the knit is a synthetic leather overlay that adds a little bit of reinforcement to the minimally structured shoe. So far, 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. Once the knitted upper breaks in and conforms to your foot you end up with a shoe that feels like it was molded around your foot shape — not just some generic last. Fit – Going true to size is crucial because the upper is very minimalistic. The entire shoe feels like its suffocating your feet when you first put them on but the break-in process does wonders for the fit. Side note: I keep reading on other forums that players wear a shoe one time and decide that the shoe is not for them, noting complaints about material stiffness. Shoes often require break-in time. I’m not sure why consumers nowadays are unwilling to break in shoes. The shoes were not built around their foot shape so why would they feel like they were after a single wear for two hours? Leather shoes never felt perfect straight out of the box. Fuse-based shoes required tons of breaking in before feeling nice. Many consumers have become lazy and impatient. Hopefully, things change for the better, where consumers are well versed on what products offer and why those offerings may or may not work for them rather than just going for something and being pissed that it wasn’t perfect from the start. End rant. Now, if you choose to go up half size on the Curry 4 because you have wide feet and wish to not break-in your shoe then you will compromise the fit and overall support. If you do this you may injure yourself because you’ve made it so the shoe’s design no longer works as intended. Not every shoe was made for every person. Find a shoe that was made for you, or break in one, and you’ll be surprised at how awesome it is. Lockdown on the Curry 4 was excellent. The entire shoe is a sock, a very tight sock. You ride inside portions of the footbed (midsole) and once you lace up you’re locked in. Being low to the ground also helps with the minimal upper — everything here feels like it had a lot of thought put into it and if it’s here, there’s for a reason. Having this upper on the Curry 3s tooling would have been disastrous because your foot would sit on top of that midsole rather than in it, and I don’t think this upper wouldn’t have been able to handle all types of lateral movements on its own. To sum things up: go true to size. Break in the shoe if it’s a little snug at first and you’ll thank yourself later. Support – Despite being a minimal shoe, the support is solid. The overall support doesn’t rely on the upper, other than the fit, but more so on the way everything works together. The way your foot rests inside the shoe, the way the midsole is sculpted in the rear and lateral forefoot — all of it works very well together. Everything feels very anatomical and I like it a lot. If I were to enhance anything it would have been the internal heel counter. I would have liked it a little bigger and covering more area. The way it’s implemented currently wasn’t a deal breaker because I love playing in the shoe, but it’s the one thing I feel could have been improved upon. Otherwise, the way the outsole sits on the floor, moves with the upper, and moves with the wearer’s foot feels effortless on new jordans 2018. Overall – The Curry 4 feels like it should have come after the Curry 2. 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. If Under Armour can continue its basketball line with this type of performance then it will have hit a nice stride moving forward. Not only do I love the Curry 4, but now I’m really excited for the Curry 5.
  7. Look at These Nike Lebron 15 Deconstruction Test We’ve begun testing the Nike LeBron 15 but if you wanted to know all the ins and outs of LeBron James’ latest sneaker then here is a detailed deconstruction by newjordans2018.com. While I don’t particularly enjoy seeing a perfectly good shoe cut in half when someone less fortunate could have used them, it’s for educational purposes and the findings are usually not mentioned by the brands themselves. However, this is my favorite look at these deconstruction breakdowns. As a shoe nerd, it’s just really freaking cool to see the shoe and all of its “guts” like this — really freaking cool. The Nike LeBron 15 has been examined top to bottom; every component that makes up the sneaker is carefully deconstructed and dissected. The tooling is what most tend to focus on because it is the extension of your foot and it can make or break your wearing experience. Are they comfortable? Stable? Supportive? Not only do we test these attributes personally, but it’s nice to actually see what makes up those attributes within the design. You can see the sockliner/insole and it’s Ortholite. Often, people ask me which OrthoLite is the best or most premium. These light blue ones aren’t it — they’re the cheapest but provide decent step-in comfort. I’ve found that the denser dark blue ones are some of the best, along with the yellow ones. Those offer the most cushion and last the longest. A popular thing to do nowadays is add a thin foam layer in addition to the typical strobel board. While thin, it does add an extra level of comfort — I know it may be hard to believe, but it’s true. If you were to try on the same shoe but one featured this additional layer while the other did not, you would (or should) feel a small difference between the two. Located under this foam layer is the more traditional strobel. It’s what the upper of the shoe is sewn onto once fit and shaped around whichever last the brand decided to use on the shoe. Another interesting thing note is that signature shoes are not fitted to a last that is specific to the signature athlete. The athlete’s personal pair is fitted to a custom last, but the retail runs are fitted around lasts that the brand and design teams feel suits the market best. In Asia brands tend to use a wider last due to wide feet being more common in that part of the world. In the U.S. we can see a variety of lasts used — usually not on the same shoe but spread across different models — that cater to those with normal, narrow, and wide feet. There are even some brands like New Balance that will make one model using different lasts that vary upon widths. You’ll usually see those widths listed when looking for a pair in your size. A much larger torsional plate is used on the LeBron 15 than what we see in Nike’s lower priced offerings. With the tooling here being so flexible, the added support and coverage is needed to avoid overstraining and foot fatigue. You can see here that the midsole sculpt is meant to cradle the foot a bit. Something I’ve noticed while testing the sneaker is that this is actually negated by the additional layers like the dual strobel boards and sock liner. The scuplt should have lipped up a bit more to truly cup the foot properly — at least in the lateral forefoot. However, the shoe still doesn’t ride quite as high as it may look at first glance. This is why I love these breakdowns. You get to truly learn about the footwear that you wear. The forefoot Zoom unit is roughly 16mm thick. I say roughly because the midsole is still partially attached. But you get the point, it’s a fat Air unit. It isn’t quite as fat as the midfoot Zoom unit, which is roughly 17mm. And neither is as fat as the rear Air unit which sits at roughly 19mm thick. Which is really thick for an Air unit — Zoom Air that is. This is why Nike combines Air Max pillars within the Air bladder alongside the Zoom Air’s tensile fibers. At this thickness the heel would be unstable, but the pillars help maintain stability while still allowing the heel’s strike zone to sit directly over the Zoom Air. The heel has an additional layer of foam injected into the pillars, something we first saw implemented with the Nike LeBron 14. This makes the heel a bit more forgiving upon impact — for those that happen to strike with their heel, of course. The upper is what Nike calls BattleKnit, aka really thick Flyknit. The layer in between your foot and the Flyknit is there to add some comfort and protection against anything that may be considered rough or unfinished — knots, seams, pressure from the Flywire cables, etc. This is the inside of the BattleKnit. You can see where things are glued (darker portions) and where things are tightly knitted together (everything else). Trusting Flywire cables to be your only source of lockdown from the lacing area is risky. So far, it’s been working, but I get more peace of mind when there are more traditional lace holes in addition to Flywire acting as reinforcement rather than the front line. The heel counter is slimmed down but has been effective so far. It lips and cups the foot better than the forefoot section of the midsole, which you can see below. That takes care of the Nike LeBron 15 deconstruction. Stay tuned for performance reviews in the coming weeks and let us know what you think about the Nike LeBron 15 so far down below in the comment section. I know some people are currently playing in the ‘Ghost’ colorway so any input you have from your experiences thus far are always appreciated.
  8. Air Jordan 8 Retro Performance Review Traction – Surprised would be an understatement. These early Air Jordan’s have some of the best traction when there is literally no true pattern involved… it’s mind boggling. To be perfectly honest… the actual Air Jordan 13 offers better overall traction than the herringbone laced Air Jordan 8. Cushion – The cushion wasn’t as bad as I thought it would have been. It’s definitely not the best shoe in terms of cushion but for what it is it’s adequate. If cushion is your main focus and you wish to have the Retro styling then this is where to Air Jordan 8.0 shines… the Phylon that replaced the Polyurethane makes a huge difference while the Air Units used are directly under foot instead of the original placement – inside the PU midsole. Material – I don’t have a pair of the Countdown Pack Air Jordan VIII’s but this version has great leather… almost identical to what was used on the leather based AJ8.0’s. Break-in time is nearly nonexistent and if you were to choose a nubuck pair it shouldn’t hurt the overall performance due to the cross straps. Fit – A true to size fit is features and when fully laced (to the top) they are snug and secure. Having the inner boot gives you a very plush feeling around your foot for a comfortable fit from heel to toe. Lockdown the cross straps and you have one of the best fitting sneakers that happen to not restrict your ankle one bit. Ventilation – This part is pretty self-explanatory… ventilation sucks. The Air Jordan VI still has the best ventilation and air flow so far in the new jordans 2018. Support – The overall fit provides all the support you need. With the exceptional lockdown fit, you are stable and secure the entire time on-court. Located at the heel are the paint graphics which offer minor medial and lateral support but not quite as good as the updated TPU versions found in the nike kobe 11 bruce lee. Overall – When I first laced these up I wasn’t too excited… after roughly five minutes of playing them they quickly became my favorite Air Jordan from a performance perspective out of those that have been tested thus far… I predict that these will be the best performing Air Jordan between the early 1-9 models… followed closely by the newjordans2018.com Bottom line… if you want to play in a Retro you can. Anyone that says anything otherwise probably can’t ball.
  9. Hit the jump for full review… Traction – The traction surface was much like the Air Jordan II, performed well no matter what you were doing. Texture is abundant throughout and the giant pivot point did not hinder their performance at all. Out of the first three Jordan release dates 2018 models, the AJ1 has been the most equipped where traction is concerned but the AJ2 & 3 are well above average. Cushion – As you already know, my knees and legs cannot handle the cushion. The polyurethane midsoles are far too dense for me and even with an insole swap I was only partially pain-free until a certain point. There is some compression which is good but overall… it’s just not an ideal setup. If you are young, you won’t have much of an issue but for some of us older players, especially older players who can still run quickly, we need to be able to absorb as much impact as possible so our bodies can endure on-court play. Material – The leather upper is decent enough and has some durability to it. Flexibility of the material itself was actually pretty good and I had no real issues with it. As far as the lighter grey panels… quite possibly the cheapest materials one could find were used and that is where I was irritated. Had I used the Air Jordan 3 True Blue For Sale colorway, this may not have been a problem but this particular version left much to be desired with those panels. Fit – The areas covered with eyelets were great. I experienced a thorough lockdown from the midfoot to the heel. When moving at a rapid pace and quickly changing direction, the forefoot was unable to handle the torque applied to the materials so that was a slight drawback as you could feel your forefoot slip a bit when enough pressure is used. Overall, I can’t really complain as this is common amongst shoes from the 80’s & 90’s so for what it’s worth, it did its job for the most part. Ventilation – There wasn’t any… While there are perforations, they don’t puncture through the material completely so they are more for looks rather than serve a purpose. This caused the material to soften up while playing – trapping heat and moisture inside – but again, ventilation wasn’t as popular back in this era so it’s to be expected. Support – The arch is sculpted providing you with a better fit and support while flexing the foot. I wish I could say the rubber heel cup worked but it wasn’t used as well as it had been in the Air Jordan 2. All things considered, the fit from the midfoot to heel was substantial enough to where this didn’t hinder performance too much as a whole. Overall – The real killer here is the midsole. Polyurethane is still used today for insoles but rarely for midsoles. Even when being used in today’s footwear, it’s accompanied by some sort of foam which absorbs most of the impact before it reaches the PU insole. Had the cushion been more protective, I think the Air Jordan 3 would have made a very good performance shoe. This is actually a model I’d like to see receive the ‘.0’ treatment… Air Jordan 3.0 anyone? Basically… if you are young, these won’t hurt you too much. For those of us who have been playing Basketball since we were 11… our bodies have been abused to a point to where we need a bit more out of our shoes than just the ’basics’ at newjordans2018.com
