Under Armour Curry 1 Low Performance Reviews

After straight killing the Curry 1, Under Armour could have sat back and waited on the Curry 4 to give us more of what we crave. But like all great signature shoes, a low top was needed, and a low is what we got. Can it hold up to the mid? Or is it an unneeded addition to a new line? You know how we do…

First up, I have to give credit, AGAIN, to Under Armour, for having the foresight to sign an athlete of Steph’s character. Coming off ankle injuries and missed games, it was a gamble to go big with him as your headliner, but I would say so far the gamble has paid well. Steph also took a HUGE gamble, going from King Swoosh to UA, but he has known what we at 2018jordans.com have known for a while – Nike makes great performers, but so do other brands. Give them a shot. Anyway, enough wallowing, let’s roll…

MATERIALS – As we saw in  MOST of the mid colorways, we get Anafoam in the upper. I won’t get too deep, because the review of the mids covers most of the facts covers most of the facts, but Anafoam is a foam backed mesh that forms to your foot as it gets heated. Not saran wrap, but gets comfy. Charged foam in the midsole for cushioning and some fuse touches around high stress areas. Same as the mids.

FIT – Welcome to our first area of change. But change is good. My only other pair of Curry’s are the Dark Matter version, and while they did fit TTS, I will say there was a little dead space in the forefoot. I had heard the MVP’s had changed the fit and were closer to 1:1 than previous versions, but we all know how that release went down. I could tell, on first lace up, that the Low’s fit snugger in the forefoot and midfoot, and the toe box was shallower, really giving the wearer a secure lockdown. I have read some going half size up – I wouldn’t. Length is perfect, and when I tried on a half up the toe flexed in a weird way, popping as it bent. TTS broke in around an hour after wearing them casually and since then no problems. Midfoot is dead on, with the shank plate providing just enough arch support to let you know it’s there without being painful. Heel fit is a problem for playing if you don’t lace tight,  as most low tops are. But just give a little pull and the heel cup locks you in. I still experienced a slight slipping but nothing that made me think I was going to lose a shoe or roll an ankle.

CUSHIONING – The second change in the shoe. You still get Charged Foam, and it is still a little dead feeling compared to Micro G, but instead of the orange Micro G insole, we are given an OrthoLite open-cell insole. On step-in comfort, the Ortho is great, but it will break down quicker than the Micro G. Also, especially in the forefoot, there was a more pronounced bounceback when playing. Whether the formula for the Charged was changed or there was more of it, I don’t know. All I know is, compared to the mids, the lows felt springy and responsive. Heel impact was the same as the mids, with no pain at ALL from off landings or heel slaps.

TRACTION – Same as the mids. And the Clutchfit Drive.


Support/Stability – For a low, VERY stable. The heel cup/counter comes up just high enough to keep you locked in but still allows the range of motion for a low. The cup runs down in to the midfoot tying the support in and taking away any slappy feeling that Under Armour used to be known for in hoops shoes (Black Ice and Bloodline especially). This is the closest to a running shoe UA has put out for basketball, something I love. Also, the wide base in the heel helps keep your ankle upright and the general density of the Charged foam doesn’t compress easily so the threat rolling over is lessened. The forefoot had a large outrigger, but it is set back to under the midfoot up to the pinky toe, not past. Some brands place the outrigger farther forward, making toe-off drag and affecting reaction. By placing it where the Curry does it doesn’t affect the foot flex and really only comes into play when needed. Under the arch, we go back to the large arch support – a TPU bridge that gives the right amount of support without pushing your foot too far up or forward, which lead to foot cramping and fatigue.


OVERALL – A great addition to the young Curry line. If you liked the mids, you will like the lows. If you like the Kobe ad  or IX, you will love the Curry. If you like great cushioning, fit, good traction and transition, you will love the Curry Low. It’s really simple – if you like a great performing low top basketball shoe, you will love the Curry Low. They are EXTREMELY hard to get right now, selling out across the companies like some guy from Chicago played in them. Think about that – two years ago, an Under Armour shoe selling out was ridiculous. Now, you can’t find even the worst colorways of the Curry on shelves. We hear you, Basketball Shoes. No more hiding the goods.

Jordan Melo M13 Performance Review

Thirteen?!?! Hard to believe Melo has been in the league as long as he has, but yes, here it is, his thirteenth signature from Jordan Brand. The Melo line was long thought of as the “luxury” sig, right below the Jordan model as far as materials and technology. How will the Jordan Melo M13 compare to the rest of the line? You know how we do…

How do I say this? Oh, I know: not good. To start with, the pattern only has lines that run across, and nothing breaking up the pattern to give the shoe something to hold on to when playing laterally. These work decent on a really clean court, but for the normal courts most of you will play on, not so much.

Then JB added moguls to the Melo M13 sole pattern. Yeah, moguls — like on a snowy mountain and you ski down them. These are supposed to give the sole more of a cleated feel, to compress and give texture to the flat sole, and really, they don’t. The nubs end up compressing completely and then you get a flat sole with only horizontal parallel lines for traction. Again, if you play on NBA, college, or even well-kept high school courts you should be good. For the rest of us who play where we see a hoop, well, good luck — the next Winter Olympics is looking for skaters.

Outdoors, I don’t even know. The grooves are shallow and the rubber is not extremely hard or durable, so I wouldn’t recommend using the Melo M13 outdoors for very long.

Jordan hit a massive home run with Unlocked Zoom in the XX8 and has since modified and evolved from there with some good iterations and some bad. The Melo M13 uses the Flight Speed system and Unlocked Zoom from the Jordan XX9, which rides lower and more stable than the original example. The forefoot is well cushioned and responsive with the Zoom pushing your foot back on compression. The nubs on the bottom give a weird sensation when added to the mix, adding even more compression under the ball of the foot for a more forgiving ride. Honestly, this is the XX9 forefoot because it feels exactly the same; it rides low with great impact protection and springs back to place quickly.

Jordan Brand decided with the Jordan 32 that heel Air was not needed, so we were introduced to a cored-out section of foam in the heel of most of its shoes that year including the Super.Fly 2 and the Melo M11. Nothing has changed, as the M13 stays with the concept. Still a Phylon base, the heel area didn’t have any problems absorbing impact or taking force and was extremely stable on post-ups and hard plants. Foam done right does the job, as we have learned these past couple of years, and this Phylon is very close to correct. Cushioning is not the issue with the Melo M13.

The Melo M13 uses a mesh upper with Kurim overlays around the lateral side and heel, and the mesh feels great on-foot. Soft and flexible, there are no hot spots at all and the upper forms right around your foot when laced. The mesh isn’t as soft as the KD 10 heel or the Hyperdunk 2016, but for the focus of the Melo line, this version is better because it provide a little more structure. Of course, there is the fuse area over the toecap (for drag) and along the seams (for strength).

Not sure what the Kurim is for, other than design. The individual pieces aren’t connected in any way, so besides looks, the only thing it could possibly be for is to protect the mesh from side swipes. The tongue is regular open cell mesh for some breathability. A little leather stripe placed along the heel for Melo’s signature is actually a nice touch — JB should have just made the heel wrap completely out of that leather.

The fit of the Jordan Melo M13 Ice Blue is nothing special, which is perfect. There are five fit straps through the forefoot and midfoot and two regular lace holes on the ankle, along with an internal bootie/tongue system. Altogether, these allow the shoe to be laced however tight or loose you need (for me, extra tight). Once laced solid, there is no heel slip or midfoot movement to really complain about, at least before playing (more on that next).

Sizing is dead on; a size 10.5 fits just like a 10.5 should, about a thumb width in the length from the end of my big toe. There is very little dead space over the toes in the toebox, so some wiggle room is there but not enough to move the wife and kids in. Even without the ankle pillows from the M12, the heel is locked when laced tight — no pulling your foot out without loosening the laces in the Melo M13.

And here is another problem with the Melo M13. First, the heel counter. Do you see it? Can you find it? Me either, because there isn’t one. That can be a problem, especially if you like a little extra help on bad landings or post up moves. Maybe Melo liked that omission, I don’t know, but I don’t.

However, the midfoot is supported by the Flight Speed system and it does a great job, like always. The plate keeps the midfoot straight and solid while making the transition smooth and fluid.

Now for forefoot containment. Again, there is none. Maybe not none, but the foot sits right on top of the midsole, so no sidewall help. The mesh is soft with no overlays, so no upper help. The lacing straps are just nylon ties going into the footbed — a little help but not enough. My foot, when it wasn’t sliding from lack of traction, was all over the place inside the shoe while cutting and stopping. The first two things I need are traction and stability/support/containment, and the Melo was far behind in both, at least for my game.

Nice try, but not quite. Felled by traction and support, the Melo M13 had potential. Cushioning was nice, even without heel Zoom. The materials were good, and aesthetically, I think it is one of the best Melo’s ever. That traction, though. Can’t do it. I hate, hate the feeling I get when I come off a screen and plant for a jumper and my lead foot keeps going. After that, it’s a guess whether the shoe will stop or not, and when it does, the upper can’t handle the torque, letting my foot roll over the footbed completely on some occasions.

If you are a stationary player, shooting endless 25 foot threes, or a real post that plants in the block for a 10 count, then the Melo M13 may be for you. If you are a dynamic player looking for movement and containment on hard cuts, nope, nada. The search continues for you. Much like Melo’s game, it seems

Air Jordan 1 Banned VS Chicago,Which is better?

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

So let us look the details as below :

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

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

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

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

So which one will  you choose ?

This Day Talk About Nike Air Force 1 Reviews and history

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Under Armour HOVR Phantom Performance Review

This has been a very difficult review, not because of the HOVR Phantom, but because of the release date.

We at hoopjordan.com have had this shoe since November so we have put some miles on it, and it has been difficult holding back our thoughts from all of you. That said, the day is here, and the Under Armour HOVR Phantom review is on…

The HOVR Phantom uses a strange pattern for a runner. Most running sneakers go with flat rubber, mostly black, that wears really well and grips in most conditions, wet or dry. This colorway stayed with black, but the flat, normal traits are long gone. This shoe sports more of a turf, nub-like sole, and it wears well under use. After two months of wearing in the gym, on the treadmill, and on the road, the outsole looks nearly brand new.

Because of the nubs, there was some slipping on wet surfaces. On wet ground, like a cross country run or off-road, the outsole worked great. On smooth, hard surfaces, the outsole had some issues (wearing casual, walking into a store while raining, it was really noticeable).

The forefoot is segmented with lines cut completely across the pattern — letting the midsole flex with no resistance — which lead to a seriously good transition. With thicker midsoles stiffness in the forefoot can be a concern, but the HOVR Phantom rolls naturally and smoothly into your next step. Speaking of the midsole…

Here is where the magic happens: HOVR. Described by Under Armour as “a proprietary foam compound in partnership with leading innovators Dow Chemical, providing a super-soft durometer with incredible cushioning and shock absorption with every single foot strike,” HOVR is at once soft and responsive.

The beauty of HOVR is the ability to tune the stiffness. The white areas are EVA, used as a carrier foam for the HOVR inside. The Nike Lebron 15 HWC is the black areas in the cutouts and the heel. The red textile netting, the UA Energy Web, is where the tuning comes in.

Think of squeezing Play-Doh — if you keep squeezing it will go everywhere and lose its shape. However, if it is in a confined space it will reach a point of resistance and rebound. By tightening or loosening the netting the foam has increased or decreased rebound.

The HOVR Phantom is the softer of the two shoes (the HOVR Sonic is definitely the faster, stiffer ride) so for recovery runs or runners who require plush cushion, the HOVR Phantom is the shoe. From the very first try on it is soft underfoot and extremely comfortable. During runs, the midsole has a sinking feeling but responds underfoot with a soft bounce.

There is another element to the UA Curry 4 that contributes to all of this cushioning and comfort, and that is the SpeedForm 2.0 construction inside the shoe. SpeedForm, if you didn’t know, is a process Under Armour uses to mold the insole, shoe lining, and upper into one form-fitting piece with the midsole. That means there is no insole to speak of, your foot just sits right on the cushioning. SpeedForm 2.0 takes this construction a step further by adding cushioning zones in the footbed, some as thick as 12mm. This alone makes the cushioning a must-try.

We have already covered the midsole and outsole, so let’s look at the upper. A 5/8 height collar made of knit stretch materials makes entry into the shoe easy but still pops back into shape for a secure fit around the leg.

Going down into the midfoot, Under Armour used a chamois material for the side panels and heel. If you don’t know what chamois is, ask a long-distance cyclist. If you don’t know one, here goes: chamois is what’s used for cycle shorts with inner thigh/butt padding — it’s like a memory foam that is also moisture-wicking. It perfectly forms and fits around the midfoot, and while it may give the shoe a bit of a chunky look, on-foot the HOVR Phantom feels sleek and fast because of the fit.

The forefoot, tongue area, and collar are all circular knit, a process that provides stretch and comfort. The toebox is extremely stretchy and the collar, which shouldn’t rub with no-show socks, feels great, even when barefoot (I wanted to try the Speedform 2.0 directly under my feet). UA isn’t calling the knit Threadborne, but it functions the same while being just a bit thicker.

This may be a debated category. If you like your shoes to fit 1:1 with little to no wiggle room, go true to size with your normal Under Armour fit. If you like a little room for expanding and toe splay, go up half. I tried a TTS 10.5 and a half up to an 11 and for me the half up 11 worked better. Again, if you like the shoe to fit directly on your foot with no extra room, true to size should work, and the comfort isn’t sacrificed because the knit is stretchy and feels great against your foot.

The lacing system works perfectly to pull the midsole saddle up around the foot. An extra lace loop at the collar helps eliminate any heel slip you might get and also pulls your foot into the heel cup. Be careful on your lacing though: there was some lace pressure across the top of the foot when I laced in the rear loop — it went away when the shoe was loosened slightly and loosening did not affect the fit. Bottom line, don’t pull too tight.

One note: I did have some heel/Achilles chafing on my right foot after a couple of miles, but only my right foot. When I went up a half size it went away. Could be the shoe, could be the sizing — I’m just informing you all.

The main support component in the HOVR Phantom is the midsole, as crazy as that sounds. The foam carrier is stiff and thick enough that a shank plate/midfoot support structure isn’t needed. It is simply really difficult to bend this shoe from toe to heel. The foam also sits wider than the upper which acts almost like an outrigger on a basketball shoes. Even though the midsole sits a little higher than some, it never felt unstable.

Sometimes, with foam as responsive and bouncy as HOVR, it can feel a little out of control when active. From a vertical standpoint (foot goes up, foot comes down), the HOVR Phantom is extremely bouncy. Laterally, this would lead to instability. The white foam is stiffer and only allowed a certain amount of bounce before controlling. This leads to stable platform that is primary in support.

The other support structure is the heel cup, which is made of a soft TPU. It’s really nothing more than decoration, as it can be bent and moved with ease, but it does provide a little mental edge to think it helps with lateral movement. Plus, it breaks the upper pattern and gives UA somewhere for the logo placement.

This is what we have been waiting for from Under Armour. Charged in the running line worked and worked well, but it wasn’t groundbreaking. The looks, feel, and name (HOVR just sounds plush) are all an awakening for a brand that has been in need of a signature responsive foam since it moved away from Micro G (for some reason).

The HOVR Phantom is a comfortable and easy ride for recovery runs or runners who need a soft cushioning for their joints. If you have been looking for a runner that is both responsive and cushioned, the HOVR Phantom has you covered.

I won’t say HOVR will change the industry — who knows what the general public will latch onto next — but I will say it is the best cushioning Under Armour has ever put out, and it can be tuned for different activities and needs per shoe (more on that in the next review). If you are a serious athlete, you owe it to yourself to at least try a HOVR shoe on. The HOVR Phantom could be a menace that no one saw coming.

Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 White and Black release during Summer 2017

Fist One OFF-WHITE Nike Air Force 1 Low White,The OFF-WHITE x Nike Air Force 1 Low collaboration is apart of the 10X Collection which is expected to release during Summer 2017.

Just before Game 3 of the NBA Finals, both LeBron James and Kevin Durant was seen wearing the OFF-WHITE x Nike Air Force 1 Low White collaboration which gave us a preview of what’s to come.

Streamlining with everything else we have seen with OFF-WHITE, this Nike Air Force 1 Low features an unfinished theme. Prior to this we have seen a Black version, but it appears that the retail release will come in predominate White. Metallic Silver lands on the Nike Swoosh which shows stitching. The laces will have ‘SHOELACES’ across them while ‘AIR’ in Black is seen on the midsole. Completing the look is the Nike branding on the tongue done in Red off to the side.

Virgil Abloh is expanding on his collaborations with Nike Sportswear but this time he will also be linking up for MoMA which stands for Museum of Modern Art. Located in Midtown Manhattan in New York City and designed by Yoshio Taniguchi, the trio will debut the Nike Air Force 1.

This OFF-WHITE x Nike Air Force 1 Low collaboration looks like your standard collaboration with Virgil. For this pair they come dressed in Black and Metallic Silver. As for MoMA’s part, what stands out is their name on the box label.

The OFF-WHITE x MoMA x Nike Air Force 1 in Black was first spotted at Art Basel and now it will release soon part of the upcoming exhibit at The Museum of Modern Art. You can also see a short video below of Virgil Abloh designing a pair for MoMA’s Senior Curator of Architecture & Design and Director of R&D Paola Antonelli. In addition a pair of matching socks will be included in the release on 2018jordans.com

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

The Air Jordan 3 “Black Cement” is a black and grey version of Michael Jordan’s third signature shoe. It originally released in 1988, followed by 1994, 2001, 2008, and 2011 featuring a mix of leather, elephant print, and visible Air. The shoe releases again with Remastered OG “Nike Air” branding on Michael Jordan’s birthday, February 17th, 2018 for $200 in celebration of the sneaker’s 30th Anniversary. Read the articles below for further release details and price information.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Russell's Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 Performance Test

I didn’t run into any issues with the traction on the Why Not Zer0.1 for nearly the entire time I was testing the shoe. Most times I’d have have a great experience without worrying at all about the grip. There were a couple of courts that had me wiping the soles free from debris every so often, which wasn’t a big deal, because the grip held in between any wiping just fine.

One court I play on regularly is what I like to call the traction killer. If I take a shoe to that court and it ends up being able to grip then I know the traction is good. This was the one time I slipped while wearing the Why Not Zer0.1 but luckily it was a single occurrence — then it was back to business as usual.

I wouldn’t recommend the shoe for outdoor use as the small nubs that make up the pattern are shallow and likely wouldn’t last too long. However, if you hoop indoors then you should be very satisfied.

Traction on the ‘Mirror Image’ colorway was so good that I can only imagine how much better the traction might bite the floor with solid rubber. Hopefully I’ll be able to get another pair in the future and see how it does.

The Why Not Zer0.1 uses full-length Zoom Air bottom-loaded into a bulky Phylon midsole. Believe it or not, this setup felt awesome — especially in the forefoot.

The midsole that rests between the bottom of your foot and the top of the Zoom unit is very thin. This is likely why you can actually feel the Zoom bounce back while in motion — a feeling that is usually lost when cushion like this is bottom-loaded.

I was unable to feel the heel in the same way as I had the forefoot, but I rarely use my heel so it’s not something that ever bothered me or crossed my mind. All I knew is that I was enjoying the hell out of the ride and had the reassurance that my heel had cushion if needed.

What I loved most is that the Why Not Zer0.1 was a great blend of stability and cushion. The Air Jordan 31 has that bounce we all hope for with Zoom Air, but at times, it felt wobbly or unstable. The Air Jordan 32 felt much more stable in comparison, but it was very stiff until broken-in (then you’d begin to feel that slight bounce in your stride). The Why Not Zer0.1 was a bit of both the Air Jordan 31 and 32; it offered all the stability of the stiffer setup without requiring quite the same amount of break-in time.

If you’ve enjoyed full-length Zoom Air hoop shoes of the past then you’ll likely reminisce a bit while wearing these. Models like the Air Jordan 12, Air Jordan 18, and Zoom Flight 96 will all ring a bell — if you’ve worn them — although you’ll notice that these weigh much less and feel much less restrictive while in motion.

We all know I’m not a huge fan of plasticy materials that are found on modern basketball shoes, but I never mind them when they feel nice and work well once on-foot. That’s pretty much where I’m at with the Why Not Zer0.1. The materials you see here are like a fuse but feel more like a vinyl. This allowed the materials to flex and move beautifully with the foot while still retaining strength and durability that you typically receive from TPU builds.

Under the vinyl-like upper is a basic mesh. It isn’t anything really special, but it’s comfortable as hell and works well with the material that’s been heat-welded onto it. Surprisingly, there were no hot spots or pinching areas for me — even with the lack of ventilation — which was a huge plus.

The shoe is definitely not premium, but it works — and works really well. I can’t speak on behalf of others, but for me, that’s a win.

I almost started the review out of my typical order just so I could go over my favorite part first — the fit is fan-freaking-tastic!

The Why Not Zer0.1 fit true to size for me both in length and width, with the width being the standout feature in the fit. The shoe feels like it vacuum seals your foot inside it without too much pressure (which would make your foot numb).

Those of you that tie your laces up tight and have been adjusting to the thin tongue era post 2008 should know that I’m talking about — that numbing foot fatigue feeling where you think that you left your foot behind you on the court had you not looked down and seen it still attached to your leg. Yeah, these don’t do that. They suck you into the upper and comfortably keep you there.

How would this feel for wide footers? That’s a great question, and one that I’m not accurately able to answer (but Duke4005 is slightly wide footed so check out his performance review). There are some shoes that you can tell some may have to go up 1/2 size in order to make work, but with a shoe built like this — with the overlay that doesn’t stretch at all — it’s hard for me to guess on what someone with a wider foot would want. Try them on in-store prior to purchasing.

Due to the vacuum seal like fit, the lockdown is incredible. If you’ve ever worn the Air Jordan XX8, with the full zipper shroud, that’s what wearing the Why Not Zer0.1 was like. I just felt secure — like I was locked in the arms of Bam Bam Bigelow (RIP). If you value a shoe that fits like a glove then you’re going to love the Why Not Zer0.1.

The design of the midsole, outsole, and the fit all play into the support nicely. The wide flat base promotes a ton of stability, while the bulky midsole acts as one of the gnarliest outriggers of all-time.

I get people closing out on me while I’m shooting all the time. With that come several ankle tweaks each week. The Why Not Zer0.1 helped when landing on someone’s foot because I didn’t roll completely over and was able to re-stabilize quickly and keep it moving — thank goodness.

That giant extended Phylon heel counter that we were all worried about: it turns out it’s awesometacular! Shout out to Jeremy Jahns! This giant heel counter keeps the heel stable and on the footbed — which is actual support for the foot/ankle. Ankle support has nothing to do with collar height — yes, I’ll continue to be a broken record on that so long as people continue to think height of a shoe equals ankle support.

This heel counter also moves into the middle of the midsole and helps stabilize it — so much so that it’s hard as hell to twist the midsole or fold it in half. I say this because the shoe doesn’t feature a shank, something I was concerned with until I played in it.

The design team was able to keep the weight of the shoe down while still keeping the midsole support strong and intact. Some may feel that the look is polarizing, but I think that’s the point. It pushes the consumer to feel some way about the shoe upon an initial look. Whether you feel that it looks good or looks strange, it’s polarizing look should intrigue most to at least walk over to the shelf and pick them up — even if it’s just to think “WTF?”

What a fantastic shoe this is. I’m not a fan of Russell Westbrook, but man, do I love playing in his shoe. It just feels…right. It’s a well balanced performer in every category.

There are so many footwear options in the PG category at the moment that there is something for everyone. Those that prefer something light, nimble, and stable while sitting low to the ground have the Curry 4. If you want something a bit stronger along the upper for the fast start and stop PG then the Dame 4 and Kyrie 4 are both great options. If you wanted a shoe that offers a bit of everything you’ll want to go with the Why Not Zer0.1.

It’s hard to believe Jordan Brand was able to start Russell’s signature performance line off with such a bang. Like adidas’ Harden line, it’ll be interesting to see if Jordan Brand can top this with Westbrook’s second shoe — perhaps we’ve seen the best it’s got from the jump.

UA Curry 4 White Gold Performance Review

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2018 Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 Performance Review

It has been a long time since Jordan Brand blessed an athlete with a signature shoe; the last one was Chris Paul, and he is on shoe number 10. 10 years and no new blood on the market. What is a brand to do? Well, since it already has the reigning MVP on the roster, how about dropping a line for his feet.

With the plan in place, we give you the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 Performance Review. Let’s go…

From the pattern alone, this traction should be like Peter Parker — sticking to things you don’t even really want to. It’s comprised of multi-directional blades broken into nubs running from a center line right in the middle of the forefoot. The blades should push dirt away and out while gripping the floor, and they did a great job — as long as the floor has at least a little finish on it.

On the first court I played on, I was sliding everywhere, having to wipe about every second or third trip down the floor. Granted, the floor was dirty and sucked, but you encounter all kinds of courts in life. The second floor was in better condition, and the traction was way better. Yeah, wiping was still needed, as the traction is shallow and does pick up dust (could be the translucent — I haven’t had a chance to try the solid rubber yet), but when clean and the court is workable, you’re straight Gorilla Glue.

Outside courts: don’t do it. Just don’t.

Technology-wise, the part of the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 that has everyone’s eye is the cushioning. Full-length Zoom runs bottom-loaded and at 8mm thick it has bounce while still being low-riding. The Phylon surrounding the unit? That’s definitely going to need a little time to break that in.

The midsole felt very much like the Jordan 32, from the start and once broken in, but once it gets going and starts creasing you will get a responsive rocket ride that is low enough for quick guards and won’t hurt when you land. Zoom has been around for over 20 years, but when done right, there are very few cushioning systems that can compete with it in the basketball market.

The materials used on the Why Not Zer0.1 aren’t exactly premium, as the upper is mesh and fuse, but the way the lines are cut and layered, it works. The inner bootie is open mesh and feels great on-foot — no hot spots or harsh rubs to cause blisters — even though the ventilation is terrible and the upper fits tightly all around your foot (usually, when you combine those two traits, blisters come next).

The lacing system uses the Flightweb system that is almost exactly the same as the Air Jordan 29 under the fuse cover. Speaking of the cover, you get a thin fuse that has no stretch at all over the foot. It’s great for containment, bad for sweaty feet, but those graphics…Jordan Brand could change the whole perception of this shoe with printed graphics on the cover.

The heel counter is stiff foam and never really broke in while wearing. It was good for support but bad for getting your foot in the shoe. On the plus side, the counter/heel is lined by some seriously thick padding that helps with lockdown and keeping that counter from rubbing your ankle until you bleed.

Lastly, the tongue is 3M and the “Why Not?” graphic should be on the outside (it needs to be seen). Overall, nothing new in the materials, but dang they work.

This is serious: the fit in the Why Not Zer0.1 is almost better than Hall of Fame. What could be better? Hall of Fame plus 1? Who knows, but once your foot is in the shoe, there is no movement at all. NONE.

The length is a little long, but not enough that it affects performance (and I like a little extra length). The width is perfect for normal to semi-wide feet (mine are slightly wide), and the heel counter completely locks your ankle and rear foot in place.

The laces are a quick-pull system using the Flightweb integration and completely pull the inside mesh onto the foot. The heel counter is lined with thick padding, as is the ankle area, and it is that old-school wrap-around-the-joint-and-lock-you-in feeling.

The strap, well, it looks good, but it isn’t really needed. The Why Not Zer0.1 has internal wings that pull inside and lock in, so the strap is just extra overlay to hide the construction. Same with the foot sleeve — the graphics look great and it hides the lacing, but like the original Zoom Flight “the Glove” and the Air Jordan 28, the cover is aesthetic.

Getting into the shoe presents problems until you figure out a method. That’s completely insane, to have a “method” to get a shoe on, but ever since the KD 10 it has been more necessary than not. The stiff heel counter comes all the way to the top of the shoe and has little give. The cover has no stretch, meaning the tongue doesn’t pull out very far. Add these together, and your foot almost has to be greased to get in.

Luckily, after the first couple wears the foam in the ankle collar loosens slightly and your foot should go in way easier. If not, keep pulling and tugging — once in, the fit is like almost no other shoe out there.

Like Fit, Support is an excellent category for the Why Not Zer0.1. That heel counter, again, is big, solid, and imposing — it’s actually kind of scary. The looks lead you to believe the shoe is stiff and rollerblade-y, but the counter cuts away from the ankle joint as it rises, leaving some room for linear (straight forward) motion as you run. The strap does lock in but it’s soft and flexible, and the cut-out under the ankle strap lets you bend and move easily.

The midfoot/forefoot is supported by the lacing and the cover — and you aren’t going off the footbed in either direction. The Phylon midsole rises up over the sides of your foot to hold you tight and as it approaches the sole it flares out dramatically to give the Zer0.1 one of the largest outriggers ever.

However, it isn’t clunky; the way the tooling is molded offers a natural feel (with the edge being rounded and not cut off sharply). You really don’t notice it until you look down and see how wide the shoe looks from the top.

There is no shank plate but the sheer amount of Phylon and Zoom keep you from bending the wrong way. Don’t be scared — no shank plates could be found in shoes until ~1995 anyway. As long as the shoe doesn’t bend in the toe-to-heel direction at a drastic angle, you should be okay.

All of this structure must mean the Why Not Zer0.1 feels clunky and slow on court, right? Not at all. The transition is smooth and clean with responsive direction changes and quick jump. The full-length Zoom gives the foot a consistent platform through your step and the low ride feels fast and light.

That was a lot of words, but when a shoe is this good, words are hard to stop — just like Brodie. Westbrook has had a reputation of having a hard time finding a shoe he loves, but the Why Not Zer0.1 should fit all of his needs.

If you are looking for great fit and support, great cushioning, and (almost) great traction, you have got to check this shoe out. This is what Jordan Brand was known for when it was building a name — performance and polarizing looks. Every year, the Jordan shoe was u-g-l-y, until Mike wore them. Then everyone loved them and a legend was born.

The Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 starts off looking completely different from the other shoes on the shelf, but let the performance speak and the shoe will be proven. From guards to big men, the shoe just works. It is a basketball players shoe, and it does everything on court that a shoe should do. Kind of like a certain #0 in OKC, huh? Now it makes sense.

Air Jordan 5 White Cement Performance Review

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

And today we are talking about Jordan 5 .

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

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

for the boxes ,it is nothing special .

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

we can see the  material in side .

we. can see the parts in this picture

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

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

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

Nike Zoom LeBron 15 Performance Review

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nike Hyperdunk 2017 Mid Performance Reviews

The Nike Hyperdunk 2017 is the ninth Nike Hyperdunk model. It is a high-performance basketball shoe that features a slip-on construction with a mix of either Flyknit or mesh textile over REACT foam cushioning.

Currently,Hyperudnk 2017 BLK EP is released

For the box , it is normal as usually

For the material : Nike Hyperdunk 2017 features with mesh material which  lightweight, breathable.Nike has highlighted this by using contrasting colors for the base layer, which you can see here in black. on one hand, it reinforces the mesh upper and provides greater durability. On the other hand, it limits the amount of airflow that mesh traditionally brings. that is great anyway .

For the cushioning : While React may be Nike’s most resilient foam cushion as last version . though it is just so so for the cushioning . hope that it is will be better in next version .

As my experience with React, There will be no loss in mobility or a feeling of sinking into mushy cushion.And the court feeling is not good . I would not  prefer this type of feeling. If you prefer a springy cushion then there are plenty of options that will give you that feeling,such as the Jordan series of shoes . React just isn’t the best option for you .

here are the lacy system picture , It is great that can lockdown the feet very well

For the supporting : Actuallly the supporting is not too bad . A TPU torsional plate are all in place and all of piece do their jobs and keep your foot on the footbed, ensuring you aren’t straining your foot. that is great for this one .the most important is  Hyperdunk 2017 Reviews and they offer a wide stable platform without feeling clunky or restrictive.  so maybe it is the reason why I choose it .

For the traction : Nike Hyperdunk 2017 Mid Black Red The rubber traction just so so ,  and that court was so bad that everyone in the gym was slipping. but the grip is great in the clean court .

Overall ,  materials, fit, and support are all standout features. However, the traction just so so that can not meet my required .  And Nike really needs to work on React cushion or ditch the foam entirely.what do you think ?

nike kyrie s1 hybrid performance review

Nike mashed Kyrie Irving’s first three shoes together to create the S1 Hybrid and we’ve got the performance review.

Traction – It isn’t often that we get the opportunity to go back and test a shoe years after its release, but that’s what it felt like I was doing with the Nike Kyrie S1 Hybrid.

The shoe features the Kyrie 1’s tooling so traction is identical. However, my experience was not. I remember the original Kyrie 1 having pretty good grip on-court — a few wipes here and there, but nothing crazy.

I’m not sure if the floors I play on are dirtier now than they’ve ever been but the traction this time around was pretty slippery more often than not. When I’d slip, I would eventually stop, allowing me to continue moving in whichever direction. But I felt I was skidding into my direction change rather than just changing direction without a second thought. Keeping the soles on the S1 Hybrid clean and debris free will be a necessary habit during your time on the floor.

The traction wasn’t deal breaker bad, but it definitely made me appreciate what I experienced in the Kyrie 2, 3, and 4.

Cushion – Like the traction, my experience the second time around wavers a bit from my first.

The rectangle forefoot Zoom Air and Phylon midsole combination is no different than it was on the Kyrie 1, but I didn’t mind this setup this time around. While the cushion isn’t mind blowing or spectacular, it’s good enough and, at the least, features Zoom Air in the forefoot where it benefits me the most.

It’s definitely better than what I experienced in the Kyrie 2 and 3, but playing in the Kyrie 1s tooling once again only reinforced my love for the Kyrie 4’s Cushlon and heel Zoom Air combination.

Materials – When I initially had the shoe in-hand I liked the front half of the materials. However, the rear canvas wasn’t quite the material that I enjoyed from the rear of the Nike Kyrie 2. However, after breaking in the S1 Hybrid I wound up really enjoying how everything felt and played together.

The mesh up front was just as light and flexible as it was on the Kyrie 3, and Nike kept my favorite part of the setup: the little flex zone featuring the stretch mesh material.

Fuse is used sparingly (thankfully) at the toe and it does its job of protecting the softer mesh that resides beneath it. Meanwhile, the stiff-to-start canvas at the rear broke in to the point where it retained its rigidity for support/containment but felt like it had molded to my foot like a mesh would.

The strap worked well and ensured my heel was locked into place, even though I feel the shoe would have been fine had the brand left that feature off the shoe entirely.

Fit – The shoe fits true to size, but like every Kyrie in the past, it is a bit narrow. If you’re a wide footer then going up 1/2 size may be necessary.

The overall fit and lockdown are a perfect blend between the Kyrie 2 and 3. I loved the way the Kyrie 3 felt and fit whereas I wasn’t as happy with the midfoot and forefoot section of the Kyrie 2 due to the stiff plastic fuse upper — but the rear of the Kyrie 2 felt awesome.

By taking the forefoot of the Kyrie 3, Nike was able to add some much needed flexibility to the forefoot while still retaining the heel lockdown from the Kyrie 2. This is an awesome setup and I really enjoyed how well the S1 Hybrid fit my foot.

Support – Nothing special, but the Kyrie S1 Hybrid What The has everything you need. The midfoot torsional shank plate is housed within the midsole while the heel offers a very rigid external heel counter that does a fantastic job of keeping your heel on the footbed.

The shoe’s tooling is flat which helps promote stability, however, I would have liked the forefoot to be slightly wider than it currently is. This is something that wouldn’t be possible since Nike Basketball Shoes took the tooling from the Kyrie 1 and just placed it on this model, but if there were something I’d have changed that would have been it.

Overall – I was surprised with how much I enjoyed the shoe on-court — besides for the traction. Traction was pretty spotty most nights, something I wasn’t expecting since I enjoyed the Kyrie 1, but the rest of the shoe was very solid. If you loved the Kyrie 1 then I have a feeling you’ll love these as well.

The fit and lockdown are an upgrade in comparison — to the Kyrie 1 — while borrowing the same tooling. I still feel the Nike Kyrie 4 is the most well rounded of the Kyrie models, but the S1 Hybrid is a close second. It offers forefoot cushion and an optimal fit to get you through games or hours of pick-up hoop sessions at your local gym.
Is the S1 Hybrid worth going out of your way to buy for on-court use? No. But if you like how the shoe looks and wound up buying a pair to play in then you should be satisfied for the most part.

Nike Kyrie 4 "Confetti" Pefromance Reviews

Now the  Nike Kyrie 4 "Confetti" the colorful pair was released today .  and the Christmas holiday is coming , a lot of people  would like to buy this one as the gift . and now that Kyrie Irving has said goodbye to his third sneaker, so maybe this one is the last sneakers this year .

I was so luck that got one .

Today we are talking about it .

For the box ,It is new and nice with the red color.

As the confetti from the postgame celebration as a constant reminder of what it took to get to the Finals, and how it felt to fall short of the goal.Kyrie 4 “Confetti” honors Kyrie’s win-or-learn mentality and the memento that reminds him of the incredible experience he can learn from. Irving scores 19 in the second half. A 27-foot straightaway three late in the fourth brings his overall tally to 32, effectively ices the contest and prompts an exuberant, face guard-removing celebration.

The designer--Nethongkome who was born in Thailand and moved to Miami at age 10, he spends a lot of time watching  Irving and studying , working on a variety of basketball projects, Nethongkome was given the nod to take the helm of Irving’s signature line this time .  Irving has very unique and specific performance demands. So  Nethongkome according the  demands of Irving to design the new sneakers .

For the material :Nike Kyrie 4 "Confetti" Reviews used  a mix of the old and new material. Engineered mesh is featured at the forefoot and that provides you with a lightweight material that requires hardly any break-in time. also Nike Kyrie 4 "Confetti" utilized the  Nylon which glued to the underside which restricts all of the air flow, but in turn it strengthens the material.

We have to say this material is great and meet the required of Irving .Meanwhile, the heel panel is a suede material  while not premium material,it  doesn’t feel cheap at all.  for the ventilation , it is also amazing , I can feel the air through the shoes , I meant it will be good for summer  hot day .

For the cushioning : the new design of  KYRIE 4, which are based on Irving’s desire to improve underfoot cushioning that solved with the application of Cushlon midsole Zoom Air heel unit. in order to improve the grip , kyrie 4  make the the outsole’s zig-zag flex grove to make the irving quicker on the corner. The cushion come back  that I’ve been waiting on for a very long time. Not only is Cushlon used, but it makes up the entire midsole,the zig-zag flex grove is amazing ,also it  looks  nice . The Kyrie 3 has no cushion aside from the heel Zoom Air unit,so this time , the kyrie 4  bought the cushioning back , it is the best new for us , usually the Cushlon is implemented with a Phylon carrier to the softer, but for Kyrie ,  it is also can provide the response  .

The midsole is actually  thin at the forefoot ,and  the bounce-back that Cushlon usually offers is minimized. I felt the  Bounce,such as the Adidas , this setup proved to be a well balanced offering of cushioning and court feel. I like it very much .the court feeling is amazing .

For the supporting : The zig-zag flex grove like the teeth, The teeth wrap up and around the forefoot to stabilize the Cushlon a bit while also slightly caging the forefoot. it is also offer the supporting for  Kyrie 4 , though the supporting just so so , but seems it doesnt matter .

Kyrie 4 has an internal heel counter at the rear. But it isn’t quite as strong as TPU or carbon fiber which can offer the great supporting  , the midsole up front is wide and sits low,so the sculpted also acts as like an outrigger, which is a huge bonus.maybe someone  dont like this design that have not enough supporting

For the traction : Kyrie 4  is comprised of multi-directional herringbone which aggressive  traditional and  improve  the grip .

this type of rubber worked really well on a variety of courts and conditions. Although the outsoles started off a bit slick the first and I felt it will be brake  up sometime . Effectively decoupling the sole, this feature enhances traction and response from side to side, forming more seamless transitions. Once again, the outsole wraps up and around the foot, this time forming a fanged sidewall that emphasizes that the shoe was built for speed.

Overall , the amazing design of idea , it is look nice colorway ,for the fitting ,it is snug but true to size. Wide footers may want to consider going up 1/2 size.then the  cushioning is also great . dont miss it  ,it is the best gift  for the new Jordans 2018 .

Please stay tuned our website , there are more the info .

UA Curry 4 Low Performance Reviews

UA Curry 4 Low Performance Reviews

The Under Armour Curry 4 Low has landed and we’ve put it through its paces.

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 used offers multi-directional coverage for any move performed at any time. Linear coverage is fantastic and lateral coverage is handled very well too.

The tackiness of the rubber compound used (on translucent outsole options) attracts dust like a magnet. Wiping will be very necessary if you play on a poorly maintained court, but when you’re not wiping you’ll still be 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 Low was still able to hold its own there.)

With the translucent rubber 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, because this was awesome.

Tech specs for the air jordan 11 cny  and Curry 4 Low have been vague. 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 that need cushioning. Much like the Curry models of the past, these are all about control, court feel, and stability. If those 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 midsole tooling used on the Curry 4 Low 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 Low 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 Low Red For Sale

The materials are the only real change between the Curry 4 Low and high. The high featured a knit lacing area and collar while the rest of the shoe was welded to a synthetic. This time around we have two components to the upper: the inner structure and the outer layers.

Some may be happy to know that one of the outer layers is a true knit that is very stretchy and form fitting. A synthetic overlay is in place over the knit for the second layer which is overlayed at the toe and portions of the midfoot. However, this synthetic is very thin and more of a skin layer used to protect the knit and prevent the upper from stretching too much.

Under the knit is the shoe itself. To my surprise, there’s nearly half of a shoe under there which is something I found interesting. From the lacing all the way to the collar is a fuse-like material with mesh glued on top of it. That’s really what’s doing all the heavy lifting in terms of containing the foot (along with the midsole tooling) while the outer knit layer is mostly there for comfort and to ensure the shoe looks like a shoe.

All of these components worked well with one another and have been fairly durable so far. Although, they show signs of wear and tear almost instantly.

The Curry 4 Low runs very snug. It’s high top counterpart ran true to size, but the interior featured no padding. The Low is a bit different and has an ankle pillow in the rear. This pillow is a bit dense and pushes the foot up enough to make you wonder if you bought the right size.

Luckily, the Curry 4 Low breaks in rather quickly but will remain snug at all times. Given how soft some of the upper is, along with it being generously low cut, the Curry 4 Low ensures your foot and the shoe are practically one and the same.

However, I do believe there will be many that will feel the need to go up 1/2 size. If you’re wearing the shoe casually then that what I would do. For those wishing to play in them, let me know in the comments if you end up going up 1/2 size. Being that the Curry 4 Low fits as tight as it does I’m very curious to know how the shoe fits different people.

Despite being a minimal shoe, and an extremely low-cut low top on top of that, the support is solid. The overall support doesn’t rely heavily 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 and everything feels very anatomical correct.

If I were to enhance anything it would have been the internal heel counter. I would have liked it to be a little bigger and cover 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.

The Under Armour Curry 4 Low is a very good performance model, much like its high top counterpart. I’d normally say how much I prefer the low top version of *insert shoe name here* but this time around I actually prefer the high top.

The materials are something I feel should have been featured on the high top, but the fit is something that I found to be a bit more comfortable in the original version of the shoe. This is mainly due to the heel pillow. My right shoe broke in nicely but the left shoe hasn’t quite given me the same experience.

If you like your newjordans2018.com  to be snug, and I mean really snug, then you’ll probably have nothing but love for the Curry 4 Low. This is great traction and stability for low-to-the-ground guards that prefers to be quick on their feet.

CHECK OUT THE NIKE LEBRON 15 ‘BHM’ AND KD 10 ‘BHM’

Like the Air Jordan 1 Flyknit ‘BHM’, Nike is putting a special multicolor touch on two of its signature lines for Black History Month.

Nike is beefing up its Black History Month theme of black, red, and green (and a touch of gold) with two new colorways of the LeBron 15 and KD 10.

The sneakers and are rumored to be releasing in just a few days on January 15, which of course does not fall within Black History Month but is fitting nonetheless because it’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The LeBron 15 ‘BHM’ features a Battleknit upper that weaves together red, green, and black. Underneath, everything from the heel counter, Zoom cushioning, and outsole is blacked out with one small exception (we’ll get to that later). Unfortunately, there were no premium touches given to the lacing and pull tabs that we can see — and no, these do not appear to carry those special outriggers we were hoping to see on retail units.

The KD 10 takes a different approach by using a black Flyknit base and adding red and green via the TPU reinforcements. It is overlayed with leather accents at the eyestays while black Swooshes are outlined with a nice gold touch. The midsole is predominately treated with white, but adds some color blocking towards the heel to fit in with the ‘BHM’ scheme atop visible Zoom and a solid white rubber outsole.

We are sure you noticed those gold dates featured on both silhouettes. These represent some special moments were both LeBron and KD took to the stage respectively.

The July 13, 2016, date on the LeBron 15 refers to the ESPY Awards of 2016 where LeBron joined his friends/fellow athletes Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, and Chris Paul to create a profound moment with their statements.

The KD 10 BHM date of May 6, 2014, honors the crowning of Kevin Durant as the NBA’s Most Valuable Player. He gave a touching speech that seemed to highlight everyone on earth but himself (who could forget that touching moment he shared with his mother?).

There’s no official word yet on pricing or availability for these two pairs, but check back for updates as we will be sure to provide more information as it comes.

What do you think of the way Nike’s 2018 BHM Collection is shaping up? Which of the two shoes pictured here was executed better? Let us know in the comments below.
