 New Jordan Super.Fly 2017 Performance reviews Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

The Jordan Super.Fly 2017 series has come along way, and that’s easy when you have star athlete Blake Griffin as the line’s frontman. In recent years, some things changed and we saw a slight drop off in terms of the shoe’s innovation. However, the tides have turned and now we have the next iteration of the line, the Super.Fly 2017, that uses upgraded and innovative technology. Does the shoe perform? We’re here to find out.

Traction – Like the React Hyperdunk 2017, the traction was awesome and consistent. Keyword, consistent. Whether you play outdoors or indoors, the outsole stuck to the ground — and it should, because it was created with science. The rubber compound used on the cupped outsole is a highlight of the shoe. While the pattern’s durability outdoor has yet to be determined, I held my ground on hard cuts without any hesitation during the games I played on the blacktop. I hope Jordan Brand continues using this type of rubber compound (although XDR is still beast) and data-forward pattern in future models because it’s been fun.   Cushion – React! So far, still waiting for it to React! Nike’s “new” technology is one of the most hyped cushioning systems since Unlocked Zoom Air. Yet, it didn’t play to its strengths. Like I stated in my Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 performance review, that the cushion lacks the effective bounce I expected. While I did feel it here slightly more than the Hyperdunk 2017, it wasn’t enough for me. The feedback you get comes directly from the OrthoLite insole and I needed more from React than that. While the cushion is full-length, there is no way for the material to expand without coring out key areas — something that had been done on other models. While this is the first iteration of React, the design team seems to be moving in the proper direction. Does anyone remember that Boost in adidas basketball shoesdidn’t fully evolve until the CrazyLight Boost 2015 — almost three years since its initial release in basketball? This is by no means a comparison between cushions but a time frame for when we can expect the cushion work better. If the shoe added Zoom units to the forefoot and heel with the React I’d be willing to pay an extra $10 bucks for this setup. React has a ways to go but we like that Nikeand Jordan Brand are trying new things — just like we’d hoped for. Materials – This particular build is a lot like an old school ’90s shoe. Is that bad? Abso-freaking-lutely not. The usage of synthetic raw materials — nubuck from heel to toe — gives the shoe not only a nice look, but nice durability. Other options include some patent leather at the heel, or an entirely textile/mesh upper. While that format reduces some weight, you’ll sacrifice the longevity of the shoe due to the materials stretching quicker (but, you do away with break-in time). Interior pillows wrap around your Achilles area for step-in comfort, and you ride atop full-length React foam in a Phylon carrier. For the price you are paying this is what you should expect to have in a shoe. Fit – True to size. Even with my slightly wider foot, I didn’t have a problem with the fit whatsoever. The only exception, and it’s minor, is initially getting your foot into the shoe. The shoe has some stretch at the tongue, but once your feet are in, you aren’t going anywhere. The lockdown from heel to forefoot was more than exceptional without restriction of any type in terms of movement. The shoe has a slight snug feel to it, but over time, the force and heat from your feet will contour the materials to your foot nicely — almost to the point where your feet are completely molded into the shoe, like it’s made personally for you. Support – The support on the Jordan Super.Fly 2017 bred was good. It features an internal shank bar, internal heel counter, and heel pillows for comfort that help secure lockdown and offer good traction (especially with the extended design of the midsole tooling and outrigger). What more can you ask for? The containment of the shoe has improved due to the cupped midsole that wraps up your foot, keeping your feet down in the footbed no matter how intense the movement you make. Almost everything you want in a performance shoe is here. Overall – The Jordan Super.Fly 2017 was an absolute delight to ball in. Whether it be indoors at the Terminal 23 Jordan Court or the blacktops of New York City, the shoe hit almost every aspect of what is to be expected from a performance shoe. If you’re okay with the firmness of React cushioning and enjoy a low profile on-court ride, this has you covered with traction, lockdown, and stability. For an athlete like Blake Griffin, with his above-the-rim game, I expected his line to have more cushion to alleviate the forces exerted on knees and legs upon landing impact. An athlete like myself, who plays a different type of game, may prefer a softer setup with more feedback. Again, if Zoom Air was added, or React was tweaked to be more responsive, it could be a game changer. Only time will tell. Big thank you, Jordan Brand family for the Air Jordan Super.Fly 2017 and the extended invite to test these shoes out at Terminal 23 Court in NYC.   http://www.kd10sale.com

 NIKE KOBE A.D. PERFORMANCE REVIEW Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

The Kobe series has long been one of my favorite signature lines in the basketball shoe industry. The first pair of basketball shoes that I bought on my own (when I was in middle school) was the Nike Kobe 1, the first signature shoe that Kobe Bryant created with Nike after leaving adidas. After that, I owned the 5s, 6s, 8s, 9s 10s and 11s…so it’s fair to say that I’m usually a fan of Kobe’s latest signature shoe. Because of this fact, the Nike Kobe A.D. Big Stage was one of the most disappointing basketball shoesthat I’ve ever played in. I heard a lot of bad things about the Kobe A.D. For Sale before I even got my hands on them, and I tried not to let others’ opinions affect what I thought of the shoe while I weartested it. However, when it comes down to the performance of this shoe, what everyone had been saying was in fact true. The simple way of putting it is that I didn’t enjoy playing in these shoes…ever. The traction was extremely inconsistent, the cushion system was subpar (and also very misleading with the fake Zoom etchings on the back), and the upper was stiff and uncomfortable.  The only reasonably decent portion of the shoe was the support, as the stiff upper cradled my foot well and forced my heel into the heel counter. When it comes down to it, I will never wear the Kobe A.D. on the basketball shoes court again. For the price point of $160, there are literally dozens of shoes available that not only outperform the Kobe A.D., but also cost a good deal less. Though you can likely now find the A.D. for reduced prices at outlets, I can’t recommend them to anyone who is looking for a solid pair of on-court kicks. Thanks for checking out the Quick Kicks Performance Review of the Nike Kobe A.D. Let us know what your thoughts about the A.D. are in the comment section below, and stay tuned to kd10sale.com for future performance reviews.

 Air Jordan Project and air jordan 4 performance reviews Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

Traction – The traction is pretty solid. Whether you are moving from front to back or side to side, the traction can keep up. I do think the newer style of herringbone is much more functional but overall you can’t complain. I will say this though… the Air Jordan I has had the best overall traction – in my opinion – at this point in the line. Cushion – Pretty much the same thing as the Air Jordan 4 for sale… encapsulated Air in the forefoot with a heel Air unit along with a Polyurethane midsole. It’s still dense with some minor compression… exactly what you’d come to expect. I am getting used to the setup though as I have had less pain while playing in this type of construction as time goes on, however, after long periods of play and the following day are painful for my knees and ankles… this could be due to my age. Material – I’ve said this before in a previous teaser; the PU coated leather is very durable. While I personally preferred the softer leather featured on the Air Jordan 4 Retro Alternate, the leather used here will last you for a greater length of time. I guess you can consider that one of those ‘more bang for your buck’ attributes. Again, I’d personally prefer something softer but as for what was given they will hold up just fine. Keep in mind, break-in time is needed so if you plan on playing in a pair you may want to wear them around the house for a while until they loosen up a bit or opt for a pair with a nubuck upper. Fit – I absolutely loved the fit. The Air Jordan 4 had a surprisingly good midfoot to heel lockdown and these are even better. Those forefoot lace wings hug and tightly hold your forefoot into place while the rear wings will provide you with a lockdown fit once you adjust the laces. There was not one moment where my foot slipped inside the shoe so the fit was much improved. Ventilation – A much appreciated change in ventilation took place going from the Air Jordan 1 -3 into the Air Jordan IV. I had gone over this in detail in my last Performance Teaser if you wanted to take a look. Basically, the side panels offer a very good amount of ventilation while the tongue is slightly restricted yet still encompasses much more air flow than the previous models. Support – Not much support is in place as far as today’s standards but the molded arch and superior lockdown provide you with enough support throughout to make these enjoyable to play in at positions 1-4. Overall – There is something very nostalgic about playing in these Retro classics. While they may not be the most comfortable at times, they have all been pretty darn performance worthy. Of course there are better options available but realistically… who wouldn’t want to play in a pair of classic Air Jordan’s?  http://www.kd10sale.com

 JORDAN FLYKNIT TRAINER 2 PERFORMANCE REVIEW Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

The Jordan Trunner was the original cross-training shoe of the greatest basketball player alive. The Trunner was not meant for running, or training, but both, based on a basketball player’s needs. At least, that’s what we were told. Now, almost 20 years later, we have seen multiple evolutions and design changes, and we are here: the Jordan Flyknit Trainer 2. Now, honestly, Jordan hasn’t been on the training radar for some time at WearTesters, but situations can change. Spoiler alert — this is a serious shoe. Follow along… First off, this review covers three areas: weight room, running, and basketball. Really, what else is a trainer for, especially when it has a Jumpman on the side? When in the weight room, the soles gripped perfect on squats on a concrete floor (the mat was gone), at the leg press they never slipped on the platform, and the base was solid for power movements. When running, and only distances of less than two miles, the sole is too stiff but does provide great traction in all conditions, and is durable enough to withstand concrete and asphalt roads if needed. Longer runs would not be ideal, at least for this reviewer, because the forefoot has very little flex and foot fatigue set in after about a mile. Now, the real surprise, basketball. On the dirty, nasty 24 Hour Fitness court that I test almost all of my basketball shoes on, the best traction I have used in the last three years was the adidas Rose 7. This may be second — seriously. Those little three-pronged cutouts had me glued in any direction at all times — front back, side to side (never let ________ ride). Shocking is too weak a word. The first time these hit the court was after a chest day and was just for 3 on 3, to get a little sweat and some shots. The second time, the Jordan Flyknit Trainer 2 had to see full court and it worked the same; there was no fear of getting smoked on defense or slipping on the drive on offense. Yeah, nice. What’s this, another surprise? Yeah, it says Zoom, but we have been fooled before by that little word. Rectangle Zoom unit with no feel encased in super-hard Phylon carrier? We know the story. WRONG. Wrong again. The Jordan Flyknit Trainer 2 features an oval unit that is top-loaded so it is right under the forefoot; it offers immediate feedback and response underfoot. The Phylon is not super-soft — it needs to be a little harder for stability under weight bars — but breaks in nicely after about three wears. On top of that Phylon is a padded strobel board that feels a lot like Poron, and then an open cell Ortholite insole. It all adds up to a very comfortable step-in feel as well as responsive cushioning for any activity. The Jordan Flyknit Trainer 2 rides low, so if you need heavy cushioning keep going, but fans of court feel, low ride, and quick response will love the shoe. Oh, the heel? Stiff Phylon, but don’t worry. The insole and inner padding help the comfort there as well. You don’t want soft when you are under plates o’ weight, but the Jordan Flyknit Trainer 2 strikes a balance between too soft and brick that just works. Flyknit, Flyknit, and more Flyknit. Hey, guess what the upper is made of? Next to the KD10, this may be the best Flyknit upper out. Yes, it still has the firm strands running through it, but the knit itself is soft and pliable, requiring no break-in time at all, so the strands are used for lateral support and don’t get in the way when flexing the forefoot. The ‘knit still has a backing, but not the thick glue of a couple of basketball models (Kobe 9 and 10). Instead, we get a fabric lining under the knit for comfort. The heel? Oh, just more Flyknit, but woven tighter for a better heel fit and support. The TPU strap over the midfoot actually works for lateral stability, especially during those basketball games when playing defense or going by a defender, and we already covered the tooling, and it was good. Next. If you try these on, don’t give up. The Jordan Flyknit Trainer 2 feels extremely snug when it first goes on because it is — especially when the strap is pulled tight. Give the shoe a little while to learn. After those three wears it took to break in the midsole, the upper felt great as well. What happened? Theory: the midsole became a bit compressed and became a little more flexible, so the upper feels broken in and looser. Not a bad loose, a “just right” loose. As for length, dead on true to size. Perfectly true to size. Width, for my normal to slightly wide foot, was also spot-on true. For anything over that, you may want to go up half a size, but try them on if you can. Heel slip? Nope, not at all. The lacing system and strap pull the whole shoe onto the foot and tie it up like a thick sock. The heel is also thinly but densely padded; that keeps a sleek speed look but wraps the heel area and hugs it tight. Here is the thing: fit is easier now, with the materials being used. Wovens, knits, and meshes are easier to pull up on the foot and make mold to the wearer. Is it cheating? Nah, not if everyone is doing it. But the days of plastic fused uppers not molding, instead fighting the foot flex and making robotic popping sounds until broken in are, hopefully, over. Just take a knit, woven, or mesh, give some lace straps of wire, decent internal padding and heel counter, and fit should be a no-brainer. Should be. When going for a true cross-trainer, support and stability have to be the main concern. When under that squat bar, or power-cleaning and pressing, you need your feet on solid ground and a platform that won’t budge. The Jordan Flyknit Trainer 2 was a little soft in the midsole when compared to shoes like the Reebok Watt trainer and the Nike Metcon series. This was for playability and comfort while doing more dynamic movements like rope drills or running, but if you are a heavy Olympic-style lifter you may want to grab a denser midsoled shoe like the ones mentioned above. The strap across the midfoot does actually work; it keeps your foot locked in the footbed on any and all lateral movements — especially on court (where I LOVED this shoe). The heel counter is not solid at all, but the lacing, padding, and strap all play a role in keeping your foot flat. If a solid heel counter was added the overkill would have led to a slappy, constricted feeling and the freedom the lowtop gives would be gone. As for the outsole, the base is wide for those heavy lifts we already talked about, which also helped on court. This takes away from the distance running, but again, this shoe is not meant for that — just short runs and sprint-style work for other sports. The forefoot stiffness and width helped overall with lateral stability while playing and there were no worries about wearing this low-top on court. This might be the best Jordan shoe on the market, no lie. Killer fit, good Zoom cushioning, materials are nice, and traction and support are both above most on the market. Expectations for this shoe were not high when the initial images surfaced, and even less when the box was opened. What appeared to be an outlet for Jordan to highlight Flyknit and a large Jumpman logo was actually a shoe that is at home in any environment, and better than most shoes at every turn. Only buy this shoe if you are serious about training in every forum — court, weights, running — and don’t want or need a separate shoe for every activity. The Jordan Flyknit Trainer 2 was a flashback to the days of Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders signatures, shoes that were built for everything. Great, GREAT job, Jordan Brand designers. This type of product makes me happy to see the Jumpman on my feet again.

 NIKE HYPERDUNK 2017 FLYKNIT PERFORMANCE REVIEW Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

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.
