About Fragment x Air Jordan 1 Story

The 2014 Fragment x Air Jordan 1 remains a highpoint of resell prices for modern colorways of Michael Jordan's first signature sneaker, the shoes now selling for upwards of $1,700. There are still occasional opportunities to buy them for a fraction of that price though, as with the recent pairs that landed at Marshall's or the rare restocks.

Do the stores know what product they have in stock?

Everyone on the store level at Marshalls is there to make sure the goods get out on the floor. The employees might be individually aware of certain products, but they’re not aware of how the system allocates the goods. The system they use is made to be autonomous. They put everything on the floor. There’s no backstock, there’s no way to know if there’s a different size at another store.

How did the Fragment x Air Jordan 1s end up in a Marshalls?

If I had to guess, it was probably a late shipment. They’re not B grades. They’re not fakes. It’s all A-grade stuff. It’s all made to sell in stores. It was either a late shipment or a lost container that they found later on. A store might not have been up to pick up their order. Stores have to pay for the sneakers within 30 days of getting them. If something’s past due, their order might still be in the warehouse, and it becomes part of the bulk buy from Marshalls.

The sneaker is coming back in 2017 via a restock through End Clothing, which held back stock from its original launch to make the model's return possible on newjordans2018.com

adidas D Rose 8 performance reviews

Traction      I wish I could say the traction on the D Rose 8 was as beastly as it was on the D Rose 6 or 7 but it just wasn’t. That was a letdown because traction has always been a strong attribute in the D Rose line. As a player that relied on his speed and agility he needed a shoe that would be able to keep up with him from the ground up.

Some people may say that Rose’s declining health doesn’t require amazing traction or  that adidas has simply given up on Rose and his signature shoe. However, I don’t believe that is the case. Making up excuses for brands isn’t something we do here. adidas designed and released a shoe that doesn’t offer the same level of bite previous versions had, simple as that.

Do I feel the translucent rubber was the cause? No, not this time. It felt like the pattern was the actual issue because it’s aggressive, but it’s also flat. Flat traction rarely works well on all surfaces unless its comprised of some heavy duty rubber.

The rubber used on the Rose 8 is the same tacky stuff that adidas has been using on previous models — all of which have excelled in performance due to the compound and the pattern. This time around, only the rubber compound excelled while the pattern left a little to be desired. It worked really well when it worked and not so well when it didn’t.

Cushion Boost is used on the D Rose 8 and it’s the same exact Boost slab we saw used on the Crazy Light 2016 — which is great. (The Crazy Light 2016’s Boost midsole is my favorite that adidas has offered thus far.) While I enjoyed the low profile setup on the Harden Vol 1 and the plush setup on the Crazy Explosive, there is something about the Crazy Light 2016’s midsole that just feels like its the perfect blend of both.

No, there isn’t that jump out of the gym feeling when wearing them, but you can definitely tell that it’s Boost and that this isn’t just some basic cushion system. It’s top tier cushion in terms of impact protection and it doesn’t sacrifice stability or much court feel.

adidas opted to cage the lateral forefoot with a rubber panel, and just like the Crazy Light 2016, this proved to be a great addition to the midsole because it ensures its lateral stability despite its restriction on that Boost-y feeling. I actually prefer the way this cage played more than the D Rose 7’s forefoot cage, which was the actual outsole wrapping up and around the Boost. On the Rose 8 it felt more fluid and less restrictive but still stable.

If you want a little bit of everything out of your cushion then this might be the setup you’ve been waiting for.

Materials When I mentioned this on Instagram there were some people that took this as a dig on the entire shoe and got a little defensive, even though those people likely didn’t have the shoe themselves, nor did they intend on buying a pair to try out. The D Rose 8 has the worst materials used on a basketball shoe in 2017 other than the Nike Kobe AD Mid.

Now that I’ve said that, the materials worked. So, while I don’t like the materials that were chosen after receiving the D Rose 6 and 7 in wonderful Primeknit variations, they still played well.

The forefoot is primarily mesh with foam acting as the structure. It isn’t anything new but it allowed for a lot of mobility and flexibility in the forefoot area, which is great. But, and there’s always a but, the material choice allowed for the forefoot section to feel like it sat above your foot rather than resting on your foot. This left a lot of dead space in the toebox and if it wasn’t for the plastic rear section of the shoe that has little to no give to it, the overall fit could have been very sloppy. Ventilation was great though, for those wondering.

Now, about that rear section of the upper. Well, that felt like it was ripped right out of 2010 and brought back into the future. We still see fuse used a lot on footwear, but nowadays it’s much more strategically placed; it’s mostly used to merge panels without the use of stitching, or it’s used as a thin overlay to protect high-wear areas and stress zones.

Luckily, this section does break-in and offer a very nice fit — it saved the forefoot from feeling sloppy as hell — so it isn’t a loss. It worked really well on-court, it just isn’t what I like.

Fit Like most adidas models, the shoe doesn’t run perfectly true to size. I went true to size due to the rigid heel and the way it’s sculpted and that worked out for me. If possible, try on the shoe before purchasing, and I’d say that wide footers will likely be okay going true to size with the volume within the toe.

Lockdown, in the midfoot and heel, was fantastic in the D Rose 8. The materials might not be what I like, but as I said above, it worked — and it worked well. This section of the shoe felt like it was a built-in ankle brace without limiting mobility.

Once laced up I felt secure and that is exactly what a wearer would want. If using these materials was the only way adidas could have achieved this type of rear fit then I’d willingly make the sacrifice because it’s a trade that is well worth it.

Support The adidas D Rose 8 has all the support features that you’ve come expect in jordan release date 2018. The heel counter keeps your heel on the footbed and your ankle stable and safe. Remember, real ankle support isn’t collar height, it’s all about heel lockdown and containment.

We’ve seen the same torsional plate used on the Crazy Light 2016; it worked well on that shoe and it works well on the D Rose 8 as well. Stability is also on-point with the wider forefoot and lateral cage around the Boost. Then you have the upper. Yes, fuse is plastic and its a cheap stiff material. However, it does have its benefits and for that it’ll get a pass — although leather could have done the same thing and felt a lot better, just saying.

Overall The adidas D Rose 8 is a very solid shoe. I just don’t think it was as solid as the 6 or 7 in the Primeknit options. I’m still holding out hope that we’ll see a Primeknit edition of the D Rose 8, but I won’t be surprised if we don’t see one at all.

Traction is my main gripe with the Rose 8. I understand wanting to try something new, but adidas knows better. We don’t need funny looking patterns that tell stories. Just give us aggressive herringbone that works. On the bright side, everything from the midsole up worked really well and I would recommend the Rose 8 when it goes on newjordans2018.com sale.

Nike LeBron 15 Ashes Performance Review

After weeks of testing, the Nike LeBron 15 Ashes Performance Review is here.

Traction was solid for the most part. You can feel the triangle pattern bite and grip the court really well from a linear standpoint. Unfortunately, laterally I can’t say the same. The way the pattern is implemented seems to be straight across the surface. If some portions of the pattern were turned a bit I feel lateral coverage would’ve had that same bite that it offers linearly.

While I did play in a pair (for a very short time) that featured clear soles, the court I had played on was one of the most pristine surfaces I’ve had the pleasure of encountering. To be safe, rather than sorry, I’d opt for solid rubber. I know there are some killer colorways releasing that use translucent rubber that will be more enticing than some of the offerings that use solid rubber, but (there’s always a but) just keep in mind that if my pair with solid rubber didn’t offer as much bite laterally as it could have, imagine what it’d be like on a “normal” surface and the translucent rubber outsole.

I would not recommend playing in the LeBron 15 Ashes outdoors. Exposed Air units almost always pop once the outsole grinds down to the cushion’s surface and the rubber used here is soft, so it’ll likely happen sooner rather than later.

Beast mode! If you’re a cushion-above-all-else type of player then you’ll love these. The bounce and feedback felt from the Zoom units is incredible. This isn’t the first time this type of cushion has been utilized in a LeBron model (the last time was the LeBron 10) but articulation is present this time around so overall mobility has greatly increased.

Is the setup perfect? While it’s as close as it’s ever been, it still has some issues. Lateral stability — while a bit better than the LBJ10 due to wrapping the front portion of the Air unit in Phylon — could benefit from the implementation of an actual outrigger. I’m not sure why there isn’t a true outrigger on a shoe that rides on a platform made of Air, but that’s what we’ve got to work with here.

If you’re a linear player, like LeBron, then you shouldn’t have many issues with stability and support. However, if you move laterally often then you’ll likely feel the instability and it’ll hinder your on court performance. It caused me to hesitate instead of moving as I normally would around the court.

I believe the tooling could be the cause of LeBron’s recent ankle issues. While he usually sprints from one end of the floor to the other, there are times when he’ll move laterally. The tippy nature of the LeBron 15s tooling will be loud and clear when someone moves laterally in them — and you can see LeBron’s body jerk a bit to recover.

A wider setup or a larger outrigger could likely resolve the issues I’ve been experiencing. I hope we see something on the LeBron 16 that adds lateral stability while retaining all of the awesomeness that is Max Zoom Air.

Battleknit is used here (aka really thick Flyknit) and it feels awesome on-foot. If you were unimpressed with the stiff upper used on the new jordans 2018 and the cheap but soft materials used on the LeBron 14, you may find that the material choice on the LeBron 15 Ashes offers a happy balance between the two.

Some areas of the knit are thicker than others while high wear areas are glued a bit for durability. Once on-foot I felt comfortable and secure, and if you’ve worn Flyknit hoop shoes before you’ll feel the evolution throughout the years.

I went down half size from my true size in the LeBron 15 Ashes due to the materials and build of the upper. One piece uppers can be tricky to get just right and I’d rather have them be a little snug than a bit too loose — especially with the tooling setup the way it is. Trying them on in-store is the best option, and make sure to bring your brace or orthotics with you to ensure everything works.

Lockdown was surprisingly nice from heel to toe. While the lacing structure relies solely on Flywire, it did its job rather well. The top “eyelet” or Flywire cable draws the heel into the rear section of the shoe nicely while additional heel padding takes care of the rest.

Once you’re in the LeBron 15 and laced up, especially if you opt for going down half size, you’ll be locked in and ready to go.

Support in the LeBron 15 is a bit lackluster due to the tooling setup. Traditional support features like a torsional midfoot shank and TPU heel counter are all in place and work well. Hwoever, the midsole and outsole lack a wide enough base and it really hurt the lateral stability and overall support. Again, if you’re a linear player then you should be fine. If you move around laterally then you may have the same experience I had in them.

I love pieces of the LeBron 15 Ashes . Materials and fit are highlights, and the cushion is the best Nike has offered in years. Stability made them a bit concerning for me while on the floor and I never ended up feeling as comfortable as I wanted to be.

If you’re willing to sacrifice lateral stability in lieu of cushion then you’ll enjoy the LeBron 15 Ashes immensely. If you’re a low profile player that roams the floor and curls off screens to get an open look at the basket then you may want something a bit different go to newjordans2018.com

adidas Crazy Explosive Low Performance Review

Nothing has changed between the high and the low top in the traction department. The coral pattern that adidas used before is used once again, and like last time, I love it; it’s multi-directional and hugs the floor better than you’d expect. Yes, the rubber compound is still on the soft side, so play outdoors at the risk of burning through the traction rather quickly. However, while you have traction you’ll have some really good traction.

Cushion - Much like the traction, cushion on the Crazy Explosive Low White hasn’t changed at all. #BoostIsLife (for me) and I love how these feel on-court. As I said previously, this is the UltraBoost of basketball. You’re getting full-length cushion that is plush in the heel and a little thinner in the forefoot so you don’t sacrifice too much court feel. TPU is still wrapped around the lateral side of the midsole to ensure the Boost remains stable; it’s exposed on the medial end which allows the Boost to expand and contract while you’re playing.

Materials - This is the first time I’ve used (what I call) the “basic” version of the Crazy Explosive. This Crazy Explosive Low uses a micro mesh upper whereas I’ve only played in the Primeknit edition. Performance wise, you’re not sacrificing anything if you choose this option. In this particular situation the Primeknit version of the shoe is more of a luxury rather than a performance upgrade. If you wanted something a little nicer looking and feeling then opt for the Primeknit version, but if you’re only interested in performance and enjoy saving a few bucks then you won’t be missing anything by grabbing the regular versions.

The mesh upper feels like Lycra (a stretchy material, what most leggings are made of). It’s light, breathable, and wraps around your foot like no other. You’ve basically got a superhero costume on your foot — pretty cool if you ask me. There are fuse welds in high-wear areas to help protect the material because durability isn’t its strong suit. However, if you try on the Crazy Explosive Low and take it for a spin I assure you that you won’t feel like you should’ve waited and gone with the Primeknit model — this is just as good.

Fit - The fit is incredible. Just like the high, the Crazy Explosive Low fits true to size and feels wonderful on-foot. It isn’t suffocating and it feels very secure. Due to the material, you almost feel as if you don’t have anything on at all.

Lockdown is great as well and there is no slipping inside the shoe whatsoever. adidas promoted the CrazyLight Boost to be the best fitting low top shoe ever, but the brand outdid itself with the Crazy Explosive Low — these fit like a dream.

Support -  Everything the high top version has the low top version has, save for some extra material around the ankle. Torsional shank, internal heel counter, large outrigger, flat stable base — everything you need in a shoe is in the Crazy Explosive Low. Everything.

Overall - The way I feel about the adidas Crazy Explosive Low is the same way I felt about the Air Jordan XX9 Low. Both are so much nicer to wear than their original versions — and the original versions of each shoe were already really good.

You aren’t giving up anything by going with the Crazy Explosive Low. Traction? Check. Cushion? Check. Nice materials? Check. Great lockdown and fit? Check. Support? Check. Nothing was left out of these. Well, maybe overall durability, but if you play indoors I don’t think that’ll be a huge issue on newjordans2018.com

The adidas Crazy Explosive Low is the definition of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

Air Jordan XIII Retro Performance Test

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 13

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 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 2018 he got game air jordan 13 . 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 on newjordans2018.com

Jordan Brand Released the Air Jordan 11 ‘Win Like 96’ with Santa Claus

Jordan Brand will officially release the Air Jordan 11 ‘Win Like 96’ on December 9th. However Jordan Brand sold pairs early via Nike SNKRS which gave many the chance to get them without hassle.

During 1996, Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls took on the Seattle Supersonics, Miami Heat, Orlando Magic and New York Knicks. Paying tribute, Jordan Brand dressed up as Santa Claus in those cities while wearing the Air Jordan 11s at malls to sell the shoes.

This release pays homage to Michael Jordan’s time with the Chicago Bulls and their iconic record.
this Air Jordan 11 comes dressed in a Gym Red, White and Black color combination. The entire uppers are dressed in Red which includes the leather, mesh and patent leather. Following we have Black on the Jumpman and on the heel. Other details includes White on the midsole and a translucent outsole.

The Air Jordan 11 Win Like 96 is set to release at select Jordan Brand retailers including online at Nike.com or newjordans2018.com in full family sizing on December 9th, 2017.

Not only did Santa Claus wear the this Air Jordan 11 , but he sat in front of a huge Air Jordan 11 box. At the locations there were cards that featured an image to unlock the shoes via the SNKRS App’s camera. If you didn’t attend the event and you had access to the image, you could still unlock the shoes at home.

Nike Zoom KD 10 Performance Reviews

Now, the KD 10 is here, and with some tweaks and turns, it looks like Nike Basketball addressed some issues the KD 9 had. Or did it? Let’s go…

It’s no secret to kd10sale.com readers and followers that the KD 9 was a favorite on this site in 2016. One of our reviewers actually picked it as the number one performer. Yes, there seemed to be some issues with the bridge between the Zoom units under the toes, bags have popped, and outsoles peeled off. But for pure performance, it was a tough shoe to beat.

With this model of the KD 10 we get a circular pattern based on the impact points of the foot. Nike has loved the circle as a pattern, dating back to the Air Force I/Jordan I days, and when done right, it works. The KD 10 was close, so close.

I never experienced any straight slipping in moves or game play, but there wasn’t a bite — that point when your foot just grabs and stops during a change of direction or cutting. The Curry 3 was this way too; it stopped well, but it was a smooth stop and not a toe-jamming brake job.

On offense, moving toward the basket, there was no delay or problems. Running off cuts or in defensive stance felt a little slow because I was making sure the grip was there. I prefer a traction that stops on a dime and allows complete confidence in staying in front in defense and not slipping out on crossovers (kind of like Kyrie – I said kind of), but if your game is more KD — pull ups, step backs, straight ahead drives — the KD 10 should work fine, which makes sense, since the shoe is his.

Oh yeah, this colorway features translucent rubber. Translucent isn’t always a bad thing, but it does tend to be softer than solid rubber. Same here, because I would not recommend these for rough courts. The outsole is soft and will wear down, leaving you literally playing on Air.

The best thing about the last three KD models? Lovely, segmented, full-length Max Zoom Air. Not much changed from the 9, so here goes: this is the way Zoom should feel, all day, every day. Some shoes aren’t built to handle this much Air, but oh well. Controlled bounce is the accurate description — for the KD 9. The KD 10? The bounce went away.

Don’t get frowny-faced because the impact protection is still there and works great, the transition is still smooth and flows, and the response is quick. It just doesn’t have that springy feel of the 9, which for some also brought a feeling of instability. With that bounce lessened, the KD 10 is a much more stable ride, especially in the forefoot. Impact protection, for that reason, may even be a little better in the KD 10, with that added stability making off-balance landings feel a little safer underfoot. Overall, bad knees, bad ankles, bad back — nothing was hurting after playing four to five full court games a day, but that special bounce was missed.

Flyknit — everywhere you look,everywhere you feel, the KD 10 is covered in Flyknit, except at the heel straps. Soft, pliable, comfy, and form-fitting, the upper of the KD is what the future of Flyknit in basketball should be, with one slight change.

The knit in high-stress areas should be a little tighter, especially with a lacing system like the 10, to help with lateral stability and support (more on that later). The tongue area is a stretchier knit pattern, letting even semi-wide footers enjoy the shoe (really wide are out of luck here). No nylon backing in the forefoot, no mesh areas around the heel, just pure, unadulterated, lovely yarn.

Thick sculpted padding rounds out the inside of the heel area to keep the lockdown going and provides a nice and soft alternative to the heel counter rubbing through the ‘Knit. Overall, this is the best use of Flyknit in basketball Shoes, ever.

The heel area takes it back to the old school with a sueded strap wrapping up over the last loop, tying the heel and foot into the shoe with a little more stiffness and stability. It isn’t crazy structured, it’s just enough to feel a little more secure. One note: the Swoosh has been coming off of some pairs, mine included, so maybe wait until later colorways to see if that is fixed.

The one area that is, without a doubt, vastly improved from the KD 9 is the fit. The 9 was a slim water ski with laces and it seemed to be the main debatable point of any shoe last year. Even us WearTesters had some issues with trying to recommend sizing (some stayed true, some went up a half size, some went down a half size). The KD 10 widens the last in the forefoot, and by using softer Flyknit, the shoe is easier to get on and wear for all foot shapes.

The containment is not as strong due to these factors, but the rope lacing tries hard to bridge the gap. Extremely wide-footers will probably still have not get an invitation to the party, but normal width people will wear pointy hats and eat cake.

The fit in the rest of the shoe is almost perfect. The lacing system really does pull the shoe tight, but watch out — too tight and the pain is real, especially in the arch area. The straps pull up from the midsole and cut right into the foot, so after a couple of games you will feel some hurt in that area. No worries, loosen them up and go. The KD 10, much like the KD 9, doesn’t need to be laced straight-jacket tight to achieve lockdown. The heel has a thick area of padding just below the top line of the ankle, wrapping the foot in and stopping any sliding up and down.

As for length, again, I like about a thumb’s width at the end of my shoes (about a half-inch), and TTS fit me perfect. A half-size down, with the softer toebox, would work great if you want no room in the end, but the reports of a whole size down? Crazy. Stay TTS or at the most half down.

Well, the cushioning is fantastic. However, the support is adequate. There are no serious structures to prevent rollover, no straps or chains or bridge cables, just a good fit, wide base, and solid heel counter.

If you get the right size then support will get you through your games just fine, unless you have some ailments that require more. The Zoom being less bouncy definitely makes landings more stable — off-center rebounds were held up and pushed back upright, while lateral movements were smoother without the Zoom deforming as much and rebounding.

The midfoot arch area is slightly higher than a normal shoe but not so much to cause pain; it’s just enough to keep your foot from pronating and hurting yourself. The heel counter is real, and the lacing system coupled with the heel saddle (the suede part) pull you into the shoe and give the KD 10 a feeling of riding lower than it does.

The one thing the KD10 needs is the midsole sidewalls to come up over the foot a bit. The knit is just too soft for proper containment from the upper, and the laces are strong, but if the midsole wrapped up along the sides to give the foot a starting block man, that would be golden.

This is tough. There were such minor changes to my favorite shoe of 2016, but those changes affected the play in a major way. The Zoom is toned down, for good and bad. The materials are definitely improved, unless you like a tighter knit for containment. The looks — let’s face it, this is a beautiful shoe. But the traction slid a little (see it?) and the overall playability seemed a step back from the KD 9.

If you enjoyed the 9, definitely try the 10, because it is an incredibly responsive and cushioned ride that uses Flyknit like it should be used, with a great fit to boot. If you are a super-quick guard that needs killer traction, well, it might work for you, but if it doesn’t, we told you so. If you are a player like KD — smooth, scoring from anywhere, can D up positions 1-5, the KD 10 could be perfect.

Overall, the small changes are appreciated. Too many times we have seen a great technology, like the segmented Zoom here, be used for a year or season and get scrapped. This stuff is magic, once they get the bridge tearing problem fixed. Remember — evolution, not revolution. And on KD’s feet, it will be televised on kd10sale.com

nike kobe 8 system performance reviews

nike kobe 8 system performance reviews

Traction – Best traction on a Kobe, hands down. The rubber is soft and the pattern – herringbone – is awesome on practically any indoor court no matter the condition. If you hoop outdoors then you will want the XDR outsole option otherwise you will grind the rubber down rather quickly due to it being so soft.

Cushion – Lunarlon is amazing foam. Besides Micro G, Lunarlon would be my choice as far as foam cushions are concerned. What is so great about foam cushions – especially Lunarlon – is that it absorbs and distributes impact evenly throughout which will help your joints out in the long run. What I like best about this setup overall is that the Lunarlon is full length so you will wear it down evenly over time without losing any comfort like you would with the Hyperdunk 2012’s Lunarlon setup.

Additionally, if you play primarily indoors, all you’d need to do is buy another midsole insert via kd10sale.com and you can have these last for quite some time.

Material – Engineered mesh sounded cool but looked scary. Luckily it isn’t scary at all and there was much more Fuse placed on the shoe than what you can actually see. Not only did this keep things light but it also added a ton of structure and support so even though you have a shoe that weighs in at a mere 9.6 Oz… you would never know it by how much support & structure is readily available.

Fit – They fit true to size. Eastbay lists them as narrow – if you have really wide feet I could see that – but they don’t feel anywhere near as snug as the Kobe AD. If I were to compare the fit with any previous Kobe model it would have to be the 6.

Lockdown isn’t just available… its freaking awesome. There are little pillows along the center of the tongue, allowing you the ability to lace up your kicks as tight as possible without cutting off circulation, and the overall containment is top notch… especially for a shoe that looks more like a runner than a traditional hoop shoe.

Also, don’t wear the Kobe Elite socks… just a warning. If you don’t know why I say this then you missed all three Performance Teasers… yes, there were three.

Ventilation – It’s not insanely well ventilated but it is the most well ventilated KD 10 For Sale to date. With the fit and the appropriate sock, they feel just fine. I personally don’t require too much ventilation so long as the materials are able to retain their shape & these do that just fine.

Support – The support is mostly coming from the outstanding fit. There is a heel clip to help keep your heel in place as well as a glass based Carbon Fiber shank for torsional rigidity and support. Inside the shoe, the Lunarlon midsoles do have a molded arch in place as well. For those of you that use orthotics, you may want to consider grabbing the Zoom Air laced orthotic ready insole option – available on NIKEiD.

Overall – Traction –awesome. Cushion – amazing. Materials – innovative beyond belief. Fit – pretty much perfect. Ventilation – the best it’s ever been on a Kobe signature. Support – plenty.

What else is there to say? If you are a Guard then this is a shoe that you can – and will – appreciate. Sure, they let most of us down with the Kobe 7’s – I say most of us because there are a few who enjoyed those – but they really made up for it with the Kobe 8.

Light done right… and better than the other guys.

Air Jordan Like Mike Gatorade Collection Retailers On Dec.2017

Air Jordan Like Mike Gatorade Collection Retailers On Dec.2017

Jordan Brand just unveiled the ‘Like Mike’ Gatorade Collection which includes the Air Jordan 6, Air Jordan 32 Low and matching apparel.

The collection draws inspiration from the iconic ‘Be Like Mike’ campaign that captured the world’s attention. It integrates legacy designs with modern innovation, and combines each brand’s style and soul to inspire and fuel today’s athlete, just as the campaign did.

With the press release Jordan Brand didn’t unveil the Air Jordan 6 ‘Green Suede’ nor did they showcase the Air Jordan 1 inspired by Gatorade flavors. However they will also be part of the ‘Like Mike’ collection.

1.Air Jordan 6 Gatorade Be Like Mike Release Date

The 'Gatorade' Air Jordan 6  will finally release in 2017 after years of rumors. This launch pays tribute to the original Gatorade commercials starring Michael Jordan known as ‘Be Like Mike’.

The Gatorade edition of the Air Jordan 6 comes dressed in a Summit White, Black and Team Orange color combination. The look resembles that of the ‘Carmine’ which was originally worn by Michael Jordan in the Be Like Mike Commercial. Using White leather on the overlays, we have Orange used on the base along with Green accents. Other highlights include the lace locks which resembles the Gatorade squeeze bottle, branded insoles and on the inside of the tongue reads “If I Could Be”.

2.Air Jordan 32 Low Gatorade Release Date

The Air Jordan 32 Low 'Gatorade' will also launch alongside the Air Jordan 6 releases which will take place during December.

This Air Jordan 32 is inspired by the ‘Be Like Mike’ Gatorade commercial starring Michael Jordan while featuring a White, Pine Green and Black color combination. As you can see it uses White across the base while accents of Green and Orange are spotted throughout. In addition we have ‘Be Like Mike’ on the inside of the tongues while Gatorade branding lands on the lace locks. Completing the look is a translucent outsole which reads ‘MIKE’ while the ‘I’ is replaced with the Gatorade lightning bolt logo.

The Air Jordan 32 Low Gatorade will release at select Jordan Brand retailers including online at Nike.com

Traction – Herringbone is utilized once again, and like the Curry shoes models that have come before the 3, traction is beastly. The pattern on the Curry 2 was a bit more aggressive than what is used on the 3, but the rubber compound on the 3 is much more tacky in comparison. With the rubber compound changed, I’d give a slight edge to the Curry 3 overall in terms of grip.

This same thing happened on the Nike Kobe Mentality line; the traction on the Mentality 1 and 2 did not change at all. However, the performance was greater in the 2 due to the rubber compound switch up.

The rubber used is pretty firm so the Curry 3 would be a viable option outdoors. The grooves are shallow, so that’s something to keep in mind, but if you’re looking for performance over longevity then these should suit you.

Cushion – Charged is used once again, and it’s pretty firm. There is an Ortholite insole which aids in step-in comfort, but that comfort quickly dissipates once you start moving around on-court.

If impact protection is your thing then you’ll want to look at an Under Armour model that utilizes Micro G. However, if you’re in the market for something with adequate court feel then these may be for you on new jordans 2018.

Materials – Other than the traction, the materials are my favorite part of the shoe. Under Armour has introduced Threadborne into its material arsenal and it’s pretty awesome so far. High tensile threads are used throughout the lateral side of the shoe and provide you with a comfortable fit without sacrificing any support.

anaFoam makes a return to the Curry line and it’s as awesome as it ever was. It’ll mold to your foot with each wear and ends up feeling like a custom fit in no time. I only wish there was more of it.

Fuse is the last material utilized on the Curry 3 and it’s strategically placed in high-wear areas. It does what you’d expect fuse to do, and luckily it does so while being out of the way.

Fit – The Curry 3 fit me perfectly true to size, but there have been varying reports from multiple buyers that have claimed it fits small, while some even claim it fit long. When this is the case then we always recommend that you try on the shoe prior to purchasing, if that’s an option.

Lockdown on the shoe is solid throughout. The slight asymmetrical lacing system provides the midfoot with a wonderfully secure feel. Meanwhile, the heel feels great with the added padding implemented throughout the rear and tongue.

Support – Plenty of solid support features are used throughout the Curry 3. The exaggerated midsole sculpts into the heel counter while true carbon fiber wings are in place for additional security. Your ankle isn’t going anywhere in these guys so long as you’re wearing your proper size. There is an outrigger in place, but the shoe sits a little high so I would’ve liked to have had the midsole cup that area just a bit better, but it isn’t bad as is. There is also a true carbon fiber shank for torsion support. The entire shoe sits atop a nice flat base for stability. As long as the shoe fits you properly then you shouldn’t have any issues with support.

Overall – Much like the Curry 1 and 2, the Curry 3 is a great shoe on-court. These are my least favorite in terms of cushion — much too firm for me — but speedy guards will likely enjoy their time in these.

As mentioned above when referencing the Kobe Mentality; the Curry line from Under Armour is pretty similar to the Nike Kobe signature line in that the overall performance has been pretty consistent thus far. When you purchase a Kobe model you usually know what the shoe will offer you on-court — the same can be said for the Curry line. Thus, the Curry 3 receives good marks in all categories.

If you’re a fan of the Curry 1 and 2 then you’ll likely love the 3 and kd 10 for sale.

Celebrating this, the Air Jordan 11 features University Blue on the Jumpman while Midnight Navy lands on the patent leather. These two colors trace pack to his infamous practice shorts.

The Air Jordan 11 Win Like 82 is scheduled to release on November 11th,2017 in full family sizing. They will be available at select Jordan Brand retailers including online at Nike.com.Retail price is set at $220.Due to production issues,adult sizes will be on the limited side.

3.Air Jordan 11 Jeter inspired by Derek Jeter

The Air Jordan 11 ‘Jeter’ was on display across from Yankee Stadium at 880 River Ave and inspired by Derek Jeter. The pop-up shop paid RE2PECT and had a capsule collection which featured hats and t-shirts along with other items from Jordan Brand.

On May 14, 2017, Derek Jeter’s #2 jersey will become the last of the Yankees’ single digits to be retired. The honor cements the captain’s legacy as one of the team — and sport’s — greatest players. Congratulating Jeter on his jersey retirement, Michael Jordan wrote him a personalized note.

To celebrate Jeter’s love for the game, the brand is inviting local community members to participate in a stick ball game they’re hosting in the Bronx prior to Sunday's Yankees game.

Jeter, who played twenty seasons in New York, set a new standard for others to follow. RE2PECT began as a salute to one man’s epic career, but will now expand across the whole Jordan Brand family, who will continue to carry forward the mantra in the pursuit of greatness on and off the field.

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.

The Adidas Dame 4 Deconstructed Report

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

Air Jordan 9 Leather performance reviews

Hit the jump for full written review.

Traction – Just like the previous Air Jordan 9 models that feature a flat traction surface, there were no issues. The flex grooves and natural shape helped movement and flex which also allowed the foot’s strike zones to be on the ground at all times. Now that I think about it, the outsole is probably the shoes most notable feature… both design and performance wise.

Cushion – Two Air units are found – one at the heel and one at the forefoot – which are housed inside of a Polyurethane midsole. At first, cushion starts out a bit rough but once you get going things become easier. You can begin to feel a slight bounce within the heel – a nice feeling to have – upon strikes while the forefoot remains minimal to allow for greater court feel. Probably not the ‘best’ cushion you could have on-court but it’s definitely not the worst. I will say that the PU midsole is much more forgiving than what’s used on the AJ3… either that or the Air units are larger… it could be both – I’m not taking these J’s apart to find out.

Material – The material and fit were the Air Jordan 9 Brown Leather Glove’s worst attribute. When you have cheap split grain leather with overlays of additional split grains along with the PU coating, you get a pretty solid fitting shoe with enough support throughout. Unfortunately these only have one piece of the thinner split grain which is then attached to another thin layer of nubuck – or whatever the heck that sparkly black material is.

Every piece of a performance shoe is supposed to work in tandem with each other and in this case it doesn’t. This is the first time where I felt as if the materials weren’t going to be able to hold up… and I’m not even a big guy so I would hate to see what happens if a larger player were to rock these on-court.

Fit – They fit true to size but they pinch a bit at the sides. I’d suggest going up ½ sz… if you don’t you could end up like THIS…

The fit wasn’t too great either. Usually inner sleeves work well inside a sneaker but the inner sleeve felt as if it was staying with my foot while the rest of the leather upper wanted to go in a completely different direction. Playing in a shoe like this you begin to understand the advantages of ‘newer’ tech… mainly synthetics like TPU/ plastic – like what is used for Fuse material.

Ventilation – This was average. The sleeve allows for heat & moisture to escape but the leather isn’t breathable so a lot of moisture stays locked inside the shoe. Any ventilation issues could have easily been the culprit behind the sloppy fit.

Support – The support is pretty basic because of the material and fit inability to properly function. There is a molded arch so they get some points but for the most part… you can get more support by going barefoot.

Overall – They were fun to play in but you could easily roll an ankle in the Air Jordan IX. It’s a shame too because they offer great traction and adequate cushioning & they don’t look half bad either. If I were going to pick an early model Air Jordan to play in it would be between the AJ7 or 8… if I wanted to go way back into the vault I’d go with the Air Jordan 3 & 4… maybe even the 1 too.

I am happy that I’ve gotten this far without injury. In my eyes the hard part is over and now it’s on to the more ‘updated’ models. Not only am I going to find out which Air Jordan from 10-23 plays best but I’ll also figure out which Retro models were cheaply made… to a point in which in effects their performance at kd10sale.com .
