You can find the Nike LeBron Soldier 11 now at kd10sale.com

The Nike LeBron Soldier 11performance review is here. How do they stack up to last year’s Soldier 10? Only one way to find out.
 
You can find the Nike LeBron Soldier 11 now at kd10sale.com
 
Nike LeBron Soldier 11 Performance Review traction
 
Traction – One of the easiest things to get right on a shoe, yet so many seem to get it wrong. While the traction on the Nike LeBron Soldier 11 isn’t bad, it isn’t as good as it should be. It was only bad in one single spot under the ball of the foot. For whatever reason, when I’d plant in that section while changing direction or curling around a screen I’d slip a bit, causing a delay in my movement, which in turn caused me to second guess even making the same move again.
 
 
 
Initially, I thought it was just that I was too light on my feet, but then I witnessed LeBron slip in the same exact manner I would while he made a move in the Finals. It isn’t a complete slip, it’s more like a very small slip. However, its enough to make you go “whoa, that was a close one” while it happens to you during gameplay.
 
Will playing in a solid rubber-soled version of the Hoop jordan change the performance? I’m not sure. Surprisingly enough, the translucent outsole on the Soldier 11 performed well overall. It was just that single spot on the outsole that wasn’t that great. This might be a case where the pattern has failed in that area rather than blaming it solely on the rubber compound this time around.
 
Nike LeBron Soldier 11 Performance Review cushion
 
Cushion – This is the same cushion setup as last years Soldier 10 but the Zoom Air units are implemented much better this time around. The Phylon is still really lightweight and fairly unforgiving, as it was on the Soldier 10, but the Zoom units protrude from the outsole a bit which makes them feel more lively underfoot. You won’t feel a super bouncy sensation but you’ll feel the units compress a bit more than last season’s model.
 
You can also see from the image above (courtesy of FastPass) that the Zoom Air isn’t packed into place this year; there is some space between the foam carrier and the Zoom bags themselves. This allows them to compress and move a bit more, furthering the traditional Zoom Air feeling that most shoes lack today.
 
Size wise, the Zoom Air units are pretty damn big (8mm thick in the forefoot and 14mm thick in the heel) which means impact protection is solid overall. In terms of player type, this setup is versatile enough for every player. There is enough court feel for smaller quicker players and plenty of impact protection for larger players. As a smaller guy myself, this year’s Soldier 11 was much more enjoyable from a cushion standpoint than the Soldier 10.
 
 
Materials – There are two versions of the Nike LeBron Soldier 11, each coming in at a different price point. If you wanted to keep the price as reasonable as possible then this $130 version of the shoe will do the trick. It features a one-piece mesh build with a ballistic nylon mudguard. This offers the feeling of wearing a knit/woven upper but with a bit more strength.
 
The premium version of the Soldier 11 replaces the ballistic nylon with a more luxurious nubuck mudguard. This gives a similar feel but adds a little more weight to the equation. However, it’s a great blend of new and old. Leathers and nubucks are used less and less as time goes on so its nice to see a shoe successfully integrate this type of material while keeping the overall build modern. Unfortunately, this premium offering will cost you $10 more because that build retails for $140. Sales and markdowns are a staple in today’s market, thankfully, so if you’re patient enough then you’ll be able to grab the premium version (if that is the one you’d prefer) for less than retail soon enough.
 
Both options are durable so I wouldn’t let that be a factor in your decision making. The main difference between the two options, other than their price, will be weight. Nylon is the lighter of the two. Personally, weight isn’t a huge issue so either one would work just fine.
 
Cheap Nike LeBron Soldier 11 Performance Review fit
 
Fit – The LeBron Soldier 11 fits true to size. Yes, the one piece build is back, and the shoes are a little hard to get on, but they’re not as difficult as the Soldier 10 — and they fit a bit more securely. Removing the three large straps and replacing them with four smaller straps allows you to isolate each section of the shoe a bit better so you can tighten the upper up where you need. I needed to tighten them up mostly in the forefoot area as they have a bit of volume above the toe. The forefoot strap helped lock down my foot so I was happy it was there, and once the materials are broke in a bit things started to feel secure.
 
Wide footers, you’ll want to try the shoe on before buying. Unfortunately, one piece builds are not exactly a one size fits all type of thing.
 
Lockdown on the shoe was good. Better than the Soldier 10 good? Yes. I never ran into issues with the Soldier 10s upper containment, but as stated above, the isolation of each section of the upper from the four straps really worked better than last year’s version.
 
Nike LeBron Soldier 11 Performance Review support
 
Support – Another area that has been slightly modified and improved upon since the Soldier 10 is the support. The platform on which the Soldier 11 sits is much nicer because it’s wider than the last model — something that was definitely needed because those protruding Zoom units feel a little wobbly underfoot when you first take them for a spin.
 
Something I found interesting is that the shoe offers the traditional forefoot outrigger in addition to a midfoot outrigger. With the outsole shaped similarly to an actual foot, coupled with wobbly Zoom units underneath, this additional outrigger helped keep me stable while in motion. Additionally, the midsole sculpt of the Soldier 11 is much better than that of the Soldier 10. The heel and forefoot areas wrap up onto the foot ensuring you remain on top of the footbed; this also diminishes the risk of your foot rolling over the footbed. I wish this was implemented much more than it is in performance basketball footwear.
 
Basic support features are in place as well. A torsional V-plate at the midfoot is embedded within the midsole at the midfoot and there is a rubber external heel counter for added support at the heel.
 
Is the shoe’s fit supportive enough without laces being involved? Yes, at least for me. Heavier players might require a bit more for this area but LeBron is a pretty big guy and the straps and overall fit seemed to work for him nicely.
 
Nike LeBron Soldier 11 Performance Review overall
 
Overall – The Nike LeBron Soldier 11 is a much better shoe than the Soldier 10, overall. While traction could still use a little bit of work, the cushion is immensely better than the last go-around. Suitable for every position on the floor, the LeBron Soldier line has shifted from LBJ’s playoff model of choice to LBJ’s version of the Hyperdunk within his own line of branded footwear. http://www.kd10sale.com
 
It’s remarkable that designers were able to create a shoe supportive enough for LeBron yet have it weigh just 13 ounces. That is lighter than most current guard shoes — and lighter than last year’s Soldier 10, while improving upon the fit and support. If the hiccup in the traction is improved with solid rubber versions of the model then I can see these being a great option for players than want a little bit of everything with their on-court shoes. Although, this would probably be a non-issue had Nike just gone simple and used herringbone.
 
If you were considering grabbing a pair of the Nike LeBron Soldier 11 for your upcoming season or rec league, I hope this performance review helps. We appreciate you tuning in.

NIKE LEBRON SOLDIER 11 PREMIUM PERFORMANCE REVIEW

When it comes to on-court performance, LeBron’s Soldier line holds its own when compared to his signature series. Does Nike’s latest entry, the Nike LeBron Soldier 11, continue the line’s solid performance or does it concede the throne to the King’s latest signature model, the LeBron 14, as the go to LBJ sneaker on the hardwood? Only one way to find out….

Traction: Using a triangular pattern on the entire outsole, the traction on the LeBron Soldier 11 is surprisingly solid but not very consistent. The lateral forefoot is where the outsole is most responsive. You’re going to feel very comfortable doing step-backs, jab-steps, and v-cuts. However, on in-n-outs, crossovers, or any side to side move where you don’t have near perfect footwork the medial portion of the outsole starts to slip just a little bit. It isn’t a major problem but it does keep the Soldier 11 from reaching “elite” territory. As the shoe sits right now it’s a pretty solid option on virtually every court condition.

As far as outsole durability goes, the triangular nubs that Nike used on the LeBron Soldier 11 aren’t very durable — but the nubs featured in the center of the outsole are more durable than the ones on the edges. This should help extend the Soldier 11’s life outdoors but there are better options available (namely, the Dame 3 or Zoom Rev 2017).

Cushion: The Nike LeBron Soldier 11 Prototype features Zoom Air in both the heel and forefoot. While it performs admirably, there really should be no excuse for not having full-length Zoom in every non-budget Nike Basketball model, especially when a name like LeBron James is attached to a sneaker.

The heel unit Nike used here is about 5.8mm bigger than the forefoot unit but you aren’t really going to know the difference. Both units provide about the same amount of responsiveness and impact protection. You’re going to feel the Zoom on your hard ladings and you’re going to feel the Zoom turn those hard landings into explosive take offs, but it just isn’t as smooth or explosive as it should be.

Full-length Zoom just makes everything better and when applied properly, it’s one of the most versatile setups money can buy. What’s used here is a decent setup that provides a good experience — it just would have been so much better with full-length Zoom.

Materials: Before we get into the materials, this review will be on the “premium” version of the LeBron Soldier 11. It features a suede overlay instead of the nylon mesh overlay that is featured in the “non-premium” colorways and trust me, you’re going to want to get a premium colorway.

I’m sure that the nylon mesh overlay that’s used on the “non-premium” colorways performs well, it’s just that the suede overlay is too nice to pass up and it actually reminds me of the way things used to be on sneakers. The more you use these the softer the materials will get and eventually they’ll end up conforming around your foot for a comfortable and enjoyable ride.

The rest of the upper is made of a soft mesh material that isn’t quite as comfortable as the suede portion of the upper but it does gives the Soldier 11s a nice modern touch. Overall, the materials Nike used here are extremely comfortable. While some may find them to be too soft, I thoroughly enjoyed what the Soldier 11s had to offer because they got more and more comfortable every time I strapped them up.

Fit: Like I mentioned in the pervious category, the materials on the LeBron Soldier 11 get softer the more you used them, almost to a fault. Straight out of the box you’re going to find that these shoes have an extremely snug but comfortable fit that really snaps to your foot. As time goes on the materials will soften up and eventually you will lose that air-tight fit and end up with a pillowy experience that feels just a bit soft.

After about 5-7 hours of use I found myself trying to tighten up the fit with the top strap but no matter how hard I pulled, the fit wasn’t the same as it was on day one. The good news is that the length of the Soldier 11s is true to size. There’s a little wiggle room in the toebox area that helps prevent to slams into the front of the shoe, despite the lack of lockdown in the ankle area. If you’re a wide footer, we recommend you try these on as the LeBron Soldier 11’s base isn’t very wide, especially in the forefoot. While the materials will conform around any foot shape, wide-footers may feel a little unstable due to the extremely narrow mid-foot.

Support: This is the first time that I’ve ever felt like a LeBron sneaker needed more support. Usually LBJ’s sneakers have too many support features and end up feeling either bulky or overpowering. This is to no fault of LeBron or Nike — they’re only trying to design a sneaker for someone who is a 6’8” demigod that requires way more support in his shoes than we mere mortals can handle — but the Soldier 11s seem to be holding back in this category. Besides a standard external heel cup and slight lateral outrigger on the outsole there aren’t that many support features incorporated into the design.

The relatively high collar is deceiving since there isn’t much structure in the collar area and it actually dips pretty low to provide a pseudo-low top feel, but what hurts the Soldier 11’s support system the most is the extremely narrow mid-foot. This narrow mid-foot will give you the feeling that you’re only standing on your heels and toes (if you’re a forefoot heavy player you’re most likely not going to notice this issue) but for the rest of us, this makes the Soldier 11s feel a little wobbly, especially on side to side movements. All in all, this has to be one of the most un-supportive LeBron models to date, but it isn’t terrible by any means. It’s the definition of a sixth man waiting: it does just enough, but it leaves you wanting more.

Overall: The Nike LeBron Soldier 11 is a very versatile sneaker. Any guard or slashing forward will find something that they like. It could be the responsive but slightly explosive cushion setup or it could be the soft comfortable materials. Whatever it may be, the Soldier 11s definitely favor quick and explosive players who are forefoot-heavy. If you’re a slow big who needs a ton of support and impact protection or a wide-footer who needs a lot of stability, we recommend you look somewhere else since the Soldier 11 is lacking for both.

For $130, or $140 for a premium pair, the Nike LeBron Soldier 11 is a solid option both indoors and on the black top, yet it isn’t quite “elite.” Had Nike went all out on the cushioning and made it a little more stable, it would have easily been a top-tier performer. However, as the shoe sits right now it falls just short of a championship — by three games, to be exact. http://www.kd10sale.com

Nike Kobe A.D. Performance Review

The Nike Kobe AD is Kobe Bryant’s twelfth signature shoe. It is the first sneaker to release after Kobe’s retirement from the NBA.KOBE AD full name is After Death. “Down below, the Kobe A.D. is equipped with a translucent midsole sidewall, exposing a Lunarlon midsole and a Zoom Air unit in the heel for maximum responsiveness, comfort and cushioning with your every move.” – Nike.The Nike official site said .

Now we get it

The out box was changed which have not ID card .

Nike Kobe AD Flip the switch colorway is attraction by people , with black and gold Swoosh.

The Lunarlon midsole which clear color.

The toe of shoes have code :Rebirth and Evolution.

1,Material

Textile mesh is used along the upper. It’s lightweight, strong and durable. It’s also very supportive for a textile

It is more lighter .But the white is not easy keep clean .

Kobe AD used a large volume Zoom unit in the heel. However, it’s just an engraved piece of TPU that Nike was able to replicate the look of Zoom on .The Zoom Air unit within the rock hard “Lunarlon” midsole.

DeMar DeRozan wear the Kobe shoes in the season game .

Here are some picture as below :

2, Cushioning :

The Lunarlon midsole is not good that I expect .You get some court feel , The cushion of the shoe doesn’t offer impact protection, you do get some court feel but it’s not even a responsive or comfortable setup.

3, Supporting :

As we know the low shoes seem not very good for supporting .But Kobe’s shoes always did a wonderful job of providing proper support for that specific low profile guard that wears a low top.

The A.D. has an outrigger with  TPU cage wrapped around the shoe’s heel and midfoot area and the whole outsole is flat

Here are some disadvantage that I played two hours .

1 ,The grip is not very well in the clear court . Compare with last version , it is seems more weak .

2, The white colorway is not easy to keep clean .

3, The midsole is a little stiff , I can feel not snug after playing long time

The setup is very lackluster and required more break-in time than one expects to put up with nowadays.

Overall , Kobe AD Sneakers is worth to buy , the white color is great ,though it is not easy keep clean , the cushioning is not bad

How do you think? If you have another idea .  just join us to discuss it . GO TO :http://www.kd10sale.com shopping

Nike Basketball And Kevin Durant “Make a Champion" and New KD 10 Release

Love him, hate him, or just don’t care, no one can deny one thing: Kevin Durant is a champion. 

Yeah, he went to the team that beat him. Yeah, the Warriors were already loaded. And yeah, he only averaged over 30 points per game and won Finals MVP. The move worked for him and Warriors fans everywhere. The trophy was the culmination of a 10-year career spent with Seattle (remember them?), Oklahoma City, and now, Golden State. What has been one constant in his game? Nike.

Ever since KD was a kid running up the neighborhood hills, playing summer leagues in the DMV/Baltimore area, leading the nation in scoring and rebounding at the University of Texas (Hook ‘Em!!), he has worn the Swoosh on his feet — and this Finals were no different. Debuting the Nike Zoom KD10 in the Western Conference Finals against the Spurs, Kevin won nine out of ten games in the KD10 while averaging 28 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists.

The ‘BeTrue’ moniker celebrates the LGBTQ+ community and aims at supporting all athletes by encouraging equality and respect for everyone. The ‘BeTrue’ KD10s have been spotted on the feet of WNBA stars like LA Sparks Champion Essence Carson and Connecticut Sun superstar Jonquel Jones.

This Nike Zoom KD10 features an all black Flyknit upper and yellow lettering on the tongue and the Swoosh. The translucent outsole beautifully maintains the eight colors of the original 1978 Pride Flag, much like the Nike Air VaporMax ‘BeTrue’ did.

There is no word if or when the Nike KD 10 ‘BeTrue’ will release, or if they will be PEs only. It would probably be in the Swoosh’s best interest to release this build, not only the performance aspect, but for the message it relays: equality.

Stay tuned for more updated information on all your sneaker related n

Nike Basketball Shoes has released a short video titled “Making a Champion” chronicling that journey and now we get to bring it to you. Enjoy.  http://www.kd10sale.com

NIKE KD 9 ELITE – PERFORMANCE REVIEW

Today we’re going to be doing a performance review on the Kevin Durant’s latest signature model, the Nike KD 9 Elite. This model re-works the Flyknit upper but also brings back the same cushioning (Max Zoom Air) and traction from the original KD 9’s, but is it a performance upgrade? Let’s find out…

Traction: The overall traction experience is pretty consistent, despite this colorway using a translucent rubber outsole. It really doesn’t matter what condition the floor you play on is in because the honeycomb pattern that Nike has reused from the original KD 9 is going to keep you covered in all directions. If your floor is extremely dusty all you’ve got to do is wipe a few times and then you’re good to go.

As far as outsole durability goes, the rubber compound Nike uses isn’t very durable and the outsole started to show signs of wear after four or five hours of use. So while these won’t be your first option for outdoor ball, the KD 9 Elite’s traction is a top-tier performer in just about every other situation so if you need some consistency in your life, feel free to pick these up.

Cushion: Here’s another category where Nike didn’t change anything from the original KD 9 — and we’re perfectly okay with that. The full-length articulated Max Zoom Air setup Nike uses here is one of the most versatile cushion setups on the market today because every player of any play style can find something they like about it. Explosiveness? Check. Responsiveness? Check. Court feel? Check. Impact protection? Check. Sure, there may be other cushion setups out there that excel and surpass the KD 9 Elite in each of these categories but the KD 9 might just be the only one that provides an above average experience in all of them.

Materials: This is where the Elite version of the KD 9 starts to switch things up from its original version. Nike re-worked the Flyknit upper to make it a little more true to what we see on popular Sneaker running models (like the Flyknit Racer) with a more pliable and forgiving knit construction. The midfoot area is where the Flyknit material really starts to come into its own as it’s a fully breathable zone that is as true as Flyknit is going to get. However, the toebox uses a tighter knit and feels a little stiffer than the rest of the upper; but when you compare it to the toebox on the Nike Kobe A.D. Purple , the KD 9 Elite feels far superior and quite frankly, a lot more comfortable.

The heel panel also differentiates from the original KD 9’s with a neoprene sock-like construction that is honestly more of an aesthetic look than a performance feature; it’s hard to notice during use and hardly effects the overall feel of the KD 9 Elite.

Fit: At this point in the review you’re probably thinking, “Wow, the KD 9 Elite is perfect, this is just too good to be true”. Yes, it is too good to be true because this is where the KD 9 Elite starts to fall off. Listen carefully as it really is just this simple: if you don’t have a long, narrow foot like Durant himself, you’re going to have some issues with the fit. I had to go down half a size to compensate for the extremely long fit and by doing so the width became uncomfortably narrow. This forced me to loosen up the lacing, but by doing so the support and lockdown were negatively affected.

Overall, I just found the fit to be too specific and not versatile enough to cater to a wide range of foot shapes and sizes, so again, unless you’ve got KD-like feet, you may want to pass on the KD 9 elite.

It really doesn’t matter what condition the floor you play on is in because the honeycomb pattern that Nike has reused from the original KD 9 is going to keep you covered in all directions. If your floor is extremely dusty all you’ve got to do is wipe a few times and then you’re good to go.

As far as outsole durability goes, the rubber compound Nike uses isn’t very durable and the outsole started to show signs of wear after four or five hours of use. So while these won’t be your first option for outdoor ball, the KD 9 Elite’s traction is a top-tier performer in just about every other situation so if you need some consistency in your life, feel free to pick these up.

Cushion: Here’s another category where Nike didn’t change anything from the original KD 9 — and we’re perfectly okay with that. The full-length articulated Max Zoom Air setup Nike uses here is one of the most versatile cushion setups on the market today because every player of any play style can find something they like about it. Explosiveness? Check. Responsiveness? Check. Court feel? Check. Impact protection? Check. Sure, there may be other cushion setups out there that excel and surpass the KD 9 Elite in each of these categories but the KD 9 might just be the only one that provides an above average experience in all of them.

Materials: This is where the Elite version of the KD 9 starts to switch things up from its original version. Nike re-worked the Flyknit upper to make it a little more true to what we see on popular Sneaker running models (like the Flyknit Racer) with a more pliable and forgiving knit construction. The midfoot area is where the Flyknit material really starts to come into its own as it’s a fully breathable zone that is as true as Flyknit is going to get. However, the toebox uses a tighter knit and feels a little stiffer than the rest of the upper; but when you compare it to the toebox on the Nike Kobe AD Purple , the KD 9 Elite feels far superior and quite frankly, a lot more comfortable.

The heel panel also differentiates from the original KD 9’s with a neoprene sock-like construction that is honestly more of an aesthetic look than a performance feature; it’s hard to notice during use and hardly effects the overall feel of the KD 9 Elite.

Fit: At this point in the review you’re probably thinking, “Wow, the KD 9 Elite is perfect, this is just too good to be true”. Yes, it is too good to be true because this is where the KD 9 Elite starts to fall off. Listen carefully as it really is just this simple: if you don’t have a long, narrow foot like Durant himself, you’re going to have some issues with the fit. I had to go down half a size to compensate for the extremely long fit and by doing so the width became uncomfortably narrow. This forced me to loosen up the lacing, but by doing so the support and lockdown were negatively affected.

Overall, I just found the fit to be too specific and not versatile enough to cater to a wide range of foot shapes and sizes, so again, unless you’ve got KD-like feet, you may want to pass on the KD 9 elite.

NIKE LEBRON 13 PERFORMANCE REVIEW

LeBron James signed a lifetime deal with Nike, cementing his already stable position as Nike’s current top endorser. That means it’s no surprise that Nike would use a person in such a position to help lead new innovative technology. But at times, Nike is arguably even better at marketing that innovation, than the innovation itself. Sometimes it takes a try or two to get that technology right. The Nike LeBron Soldier 11 doesn’t necessarily introduce any new technology, but it implements recent innovations like Hyperposite and hexagonal Zoom better than any shoe before it.

Traction – The traction used on the LeBron 13 is something that I was initially unimpressed with – visually – but they ended up working really well on-court. The hex pods found throughout the outsole feature large bars that act like herringbone, and are implemented in multiple directions for coverage no matter how or where you’re moving. I was unable to play on a really dusty court so I can’t tell you how dust affects their performance this time around, but on clean and very lightly dusty courts they had zero issues and were very consistent.

Cushion – The setup here is similar to the Nike LeBron 12, but they feel much better than the 12’s did. I still couldn’t really feel the two smaller Hex-Zoom units located on the lateral section of the foot, but the met unit and heel unit were amazing. Those two zones cover a large amount of space, plus they’re both 13mm thick…that’s a pretty damn thick Zoom unit. You can feel the bounce and responsiveness with every stride, and that is something that was truly lacking with the 12.

The old saying holds true: if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.

Something that was greatly improved due to the new setup was transition. Heel to toe strides are no longer clunky and instead really smooth. The LeBron 12’s had an awesome Zoom unit located in the heel but was met with a hard Posite-covered midsole upon impact. Now all you have is lightweight Phylon and Zoom aiding you through your stride and it makes the shoe feel as light as they actually are.

Materials – The upper is comprised of a one-piece booty with plenty of additional overlays that offer both support where you need it and flexibility where you want it. At their base there is the sock booty, followed by Dynamic Flywire. This provides you with a comfortable fit and minor lockdown support. Then you have a lot of TPU or Fuse in zoned areas. These areas offer zero stretch so your fit isn’t going to be compromised while making hard cuts or changes in direction — this is one thing the upper does better than the MegaFuse/ Mesh build found on last year’s LeBron 12. These TPU layers feel pretty awkward upon trying them on, and all I can say is that you really won’t be satisfied with the upper until you take them on-court and play in them.

The last two layers are mesh and HyperPosite. Basically, the mesh is there to add a final layer without adding too much weight to the shoe while the Posite is there to protect the mesh. Nike states that the HyperPosite provides “Zoned impact protection” but that’s pretty vague. So I’m just assuming it’s really there to protect the mesh — much like the MegaFuse was to protect the mesh on the 12’s. The Posite overlays will not alleviate the pressure from impact when someone steps or lands on you. Trust me…being a smaller player, I get stepped on. A lot.

Fit --I feel they fit true to size, but there is a tiny bit of room length wise in the toe. I don’t feel going down 1/2 size was necessary for me – as I love how my pair fits – but trying them on to determine the perfect size for you is always best.

Those of you with high arches will definitely want to try them on first because the Fuse/ Posite layer that rests on top of the midfoot — like I mentioned before — has zero stretch. So that area might have a negative affect on the fit for some people. However, lockdown due to the Fuse/ Posite sections was fantastic. Again, they feel very awkward when you try them on, and you have to break them in (slightly) each time you go out and play. But once the materials are warmed up then you’re pretty much locked into the shoe and all you’ll have is a great on-court experience. Unless you’re having an off night, and let’s face it, we all have those from time to time.

The only area that I can really say I disliked was the collar height. Not because I prefer low tops, but because there were times it dug into my legs a bit. It wasn’t horrible or to the point where it rubbed the skin raw, but it wasn’t something I enjoyed either

Support – All of the aforementioned Nike KD 10 for sale , from their tooling to their fit, have a positive effect on their support. The 13’s sport a wide base that feels stable — even though there are a couple of large volume Zoom units in place — and the base is slightly wider than the upper so it cradles the foot really nicely (which aids in stability). The materials and fit all do their job with support as well. There are plenty of areas with flex and mobility, but zero stretch. So you’re able to maneuver on-court without feeling like you’re wearing a pair of Timberland’s.

Overall – I didn’t like them when I first tried them on. Like, not even a little. However, they are really dope on-court kicks that perform really well. Traction and cushion were pretty beastly. The materials are something I personally liked more on last year’s model, but larger players will love that combination of flexibility/mobility and support. They’re ultra lightweight too, despite how bulky they look. Light enough to where a small Guard can still maneuver around the court perfectly fine.

As far as their price/ value. That is really your choice. Set up a budget and stick to it. Does a shoe’s performance really change just because of a higher or lower dollar value? No, not at all. If these would have released exactly as they are for $40 versus their $200 price tag; would their performance have changed in any way? Nope. There are great performance models out there and their retail prices range from dirt cheap to hell nah you crazy. So, if a shoe meets your on-court needs and they are within your budget grab a pair and enjoy them on-court. After all, that’s what they were made for.

AIR JORDAN ULTRA.FLY 2 PERFORMANCE REVIEW

AIR JORDAN ULTRA.FLY 2 PERFORMANCE REVIEW

You might remember the debut Jordan Ultra Fly as the head-turning almost alien-like model that an on-fire Jimmy Butler wore during the Bulls playoff push last season.This is the first Jordan Brand performance model I’ve bought in a long time that doesn’t make me feel like I was ripped off. Well, these and the Air Jordan XXXI Low. The Ultra.Fly 2 is a bit heavy with a suffocating fit, but if you give it enough playing time you’ll find that it performs well and breaks in very nicely.

Here we go :

Traction – I had a love/hate relationship with the traction. The pattern itself looks awesome, and it is — for the most part. However, dust collected quickly within the black portions of the outsole which resulted in an inconsistent feel at times. I’d be interested to see how much of a difference it would’ve made had the pattern been consistent throughout because the white sections gripped the floor without issue — dust or no dust. Again, it was mainly the black pods that needed regular on-court maintenance.

When things were gripping, the coverage was very close to being Hall of Fame level. When it wasn’t, it was frustrating. Outdoors, the outsole worked extremely well — a pleasant surprise. Will everyone experience what I experienced? I’m not sure. I can imagine the grip varying depending on the court condition; if you play on clean courts or outdoor surfaces then I wouldn’t worry too much. However, if your court needs to be refinished or is cleaned irregularly then you may be disappointed.

If I could have given the score half 6th Man and half Starting Five then I would have — I kept changing the score because the traction didn’t let me down regularly, which I feel is worthy of a Starting Five, but when it did let me down it was a huge let down.

Cushion – The Jordan Ultra.Fly 2 Blue uses heel and forefoot Zoom Air. Yes, a shoe from Jordan Brand that retails for $125 features heel and forefoot cushion. Whoever has been holding onto the budget with an iron fist was either fired or has finally come to their senses. Welcome back to being part of the equation as far as value is concerned, Jordan Brand. It’s about damn time.

The Ultra.Fly 2 starts off feeling a bit heavy feeling underfoot. This is due to the fairly dense Phylon midsole used here. Despite being on the dense side, the foam did feel like it had some rebound once broken-in. This then allowed me to feel the Zoom Air that was installed within the forefoot of the shoe quite a bit.

On top of that, the tooling is rounded ever so slightly which caused the tooling to flex a bit with weight added — furthering the feeling of the Zoom located in the forefoot. Kyrie 2 and 3 — I’m giving you the People’s Eyebrow right now.

The heel Zoom unit is a poor excuse for Zoom Air as it’s one of those quarter-sized Hex Zoom units. However, it’s better than having nothing at all. As you can see from the image above, provided by FastPass.cn, the Hex unit is on the thicker side so not all is lost. When enough force is applied you can feel it and its doing what it’s supposed to — absorbing impact.

Would it have been better had it been the same size heel unit that was used in the Kyrie 3? Definitely. I’m just happy that Jordan Brand seems to be moving in the right direction again. Unless the next few models from Jordan Brand don’t feature heel cushion — then we’ll just chalk this model up as a fluke.

Materials – The upper of the Ultra.Fly 2 is an engineered knit that feels amazing on-foot. However, this is a one-piece construction upper so some might not enjoy the overall fit, but we’ll get into that in a bit. The knit used here on the stretchy side so lateral containment and support would greatly suffer had the designers not placed a TPU overlay on most of the shoe.

TPU overlays are not really my thing, but there are times when it’s done in a way where you don’t feel like you’re trying to play basketball in a rain boot. This is one of those times. I felt like I was wearing a knitted shoe but with the reinforcement of an upper constructed of TPU; it was a very nice blend between the two and it feel pretty well balanced. The materials function well, and they’re durable — only furthering the shoe’s overall value at its $125 price point.

Fit – The 2018 Jordan Ultra.Fly 2 runs true to size, but being a one-piece upper, they are not going to please everyone. Wide footers should try the shoe on before buying as the fit is a bit suffocating initially. Actually, the fit is always suffocating, but you get used to it.

Padding is abundant within the upper which makes the shoe feel comfortable despite it’s tight grasp to your feet. Once laced up you really aren’t going anywhere and I feel it’s one of the shoe’s better features once you’re adjusted.

The eyelets run all the way down to the footbed of the Ultra.Fly 2; they grab ahold of your foot and act like steel cables while the top eyelet draws your ankle and heel into the shoe to ensure they stays locked at all times.

Support – The new yeezys 2017 features one would expect to be in place are all here and accounted for. Lateral outrigger? Check. Dynamic lacing system? Check. Internal heel counter? Check.

A couple of features that set the Jordan Ultra.Fly 2 apart from the rest are the way the upper is constructed, allowing motion while still retaining the ability to properly contain and support during lateral movements, and the sculpted midsole. It looks like it’s just aesthetic but the way the midsole swoops up along the lateral midfoot and medial heel ensures that you and the footbed are one. It cradled my feet at all times and did not allow me to ever feel like I about to be ejected off of the shoe’s platform.

Overall – I’m really hoping the Jordan Ultra.Fly 2 isn’t a fluke and that this is just the beginning of Jordan Brand coming back to its senses. You can no longer get away with reducing tech and hiking up the prices on performance footwear. Not when every other brand is releasing shoes for under $150 that feature full-length cushion in addition to all the standard bells and whistles.

The Jordan Ultra.Fly 2 takes everything the original was and threw it away. Now this is a basketball shoe.

2017 new Jordan Retro 11 Space Jam Performance Reviews

Today marks the 20th anniversary of Michael Jordan’s classic animated movie Space Jam. The Warner Bros.-produced film paired Jordan with Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes, who he had first appeared alongside in a series of Nike ads promoting his Air Jordan sneakers in the early '90s.
This year sees the return of the Air Jordan 11 Retro ‘Space Jam’. Well, sort of. It’s actually a PE MJ wore during the Playoffs against the Orlando Magic.

1.Material

The material is breathable so that’s going to scores some points but its noticeably not as ventilated as something like the Air Jordan VI, which I still feel has the best ventilation out of the entire lineup.

Patent leather and ballistic nylon mesh are used along the upper… oh, and a very small piece of cheap split grain leather is located at the heel.But anyway the material is well

The traction is sold ,and  clear sections are nice and sticky straight out the box, which is good and bad depending on court conditions.

2.Cushion

Using lightweight Phylon and full length Air unit in place, cushion is solid as well. While they aren’t as soft as the original or 2000/01 Retro releases, they are still leaps and bounds better than previous Air Jordan models. Impact absorption is available and consistent throughout while still maintaining decent court feel in the forefoot.

3.Support

The Carbon Fiber adds a lot of support along the entire base of the foot, not just the arch, and the overall fit provides you with the extra reassurance you’d want or need

Lockdown is great all the way up the shoe so there isn’t much to complain about. Only thing that could pose a problem is that the materials are ‘weak’ in comparison to today’s synthetics but this is where growing up in the 90’s comes into play

Overall – The Air Jordan 2018 Realease is a straight beast on-court. They look good, feel good and they play well on top of that.  These are still one of my personal favorite on-court options of all time. There are better options, of course, but just knowing that you won’t lose and ankle or mess up your knees is definitely something to consider. It’s really their increased price that will cause someone to not wear these on-courts

Nike KD 10 still kd Performance Review

Traction – Looks can be deceiving. While the circular pattern looks amazing and should have taken care of multidirectional coverage like no other, the grip was inconsistent on a regular basis — making the Nike KD 10 still kd consistently inconsistent.

The outsole plays very well outdoors, which is a plus, but it wasn’t designed with durability in mind. After only a few outdoor hoop sessions my frayed outsole looks like corn before it’s shucked. Or is it after it’s been shucked? You know all those weird hairy fibers inside the corn husk? That’s what I’m trying to say.

At any rate, there are talks that the initial colorways of the Nike KD 10 have lackluster traction while future colorways will have a slightly improved rubber compound. I’m not sure how true that is and if it is true it isn’t something that should happen — it makes the reviews inaccurate and it confuses consumers as to what colorways offer decent traction. Air Jordan XXXI anyone?

All I can do is share my experiences with the product I wore. In this circumstance, the traction on both of my KD 10s — yes, I have two pairs in two different sizes — just didn’t work out for me.

Nike KD 10 Performance Review cushion

Cushion – Full-length Max Zoom Air is back and it’s a bit firmer than it was the last time around. Don’t be put off when trying on the Nike KD 10 because you don’t feel the bounce right away like you might have with the KD 9. The 10s take a bit of breaking in before you can feel the responsiveness.

From a functional standpoint, the cushion here offers the same thing that the KD 9 did: the best impact protection Nike currently has available. Oh, and it’s still articulated in the forefoot so you can move about the court without too much restriction. I love the cushion and I hope its durability issues have been resolved. Not that I popped any of my pairs, but I know a few people that have — and I have received countless emails and DMs about other people’s pairs popping.

I think Nike has a great thing going with this type of Zoom Air and I hope it’s appreciated by the masses.

Nike KD 10 Performance Review materials

Materials – Flyknit, Flyknit everywhere. I love the materials that were used on the Nike KD 10, I just don’t love how they performed. Although, I believe it was a combination of the materials used and the lacing system that wound up causing my disappointment.

You have Flyknit from heel to toe on the Nike KD 10 and it’s infused with TPU threads — much like the Nike Kobe 11 Elite. Heat was applied to stress zones and the toebox area to weld the TPU and knit together for strength and durability. This causes a bit of a disconnect between the material and the foot, but it felt really nice overall.

The area that features 100% Flyknit is the tongue and collar. You can get these babies on and off your feet without issue, whereas the KD 9 was a bit of a struggle. By a bit of a struggle I mean they were an added workout to your daily regimen.

While being a knit, the Nike KD 10 is durable as hell which is something most people will appreciate. Containment could have been a lot better than it was, which brings me to the next topic.

Nike KD 10 Performance Review fit

Fit – Go down 1/2 size. Seriously. Wide footers, you’ll be good going true to size without needing to size up, but everyone else, go down 1/2 size. The disconnect I discussed above creates a bit of volume around the foot and when you have a knitted upper that isn’t something you want.

However, lockdown is the main culprit. Heel lockdown was great; the lacing system worked really well with the internal heel counter and heavily padded heel.

The midfoot lockdown was atrocious. Having the lacing sit at the bottom of the foot sounds great but when it’s coupled with a super stretchy midfoot section, lateral containment goes out the window. When I’d try to compensate for the lack of containment by tightening the lacing, those loops would pull and dig into the bottom of my feet. Not only was this painful, but it didn’t work.

Using a setup like this really has me appreciating the current method of lacing — nylon loops that run down the foot and attach at the footbed. You’re able to properly tighten sections of the shoe where you need it — at the throat, whether it be at the midfoot, forefoot, or heel — all while the nylon strands act as suspension, bridging the gap between the top of the foot and the bottom of the foot. The KD 10’s lacing system only covered the suspension aspect but not the top of the foot/throat synching that a lot of players prefer.

If you’re a player that plays the game pretty straight then you may never feel or notice this. If you’re a spot up shooter, you may never notice this. Being small, I have to maneuver around the court and get open. Using screens is my best option in most cases and when tightly turning around my screen my foot felt like it was sliding over the footbed. This caused a delay in my shot as I’d then have to try and quickly readjust my footing when I typically don’t have an issue if lateral containment is solid.

Things were just a little too sloppy for me and I prefer the way the KD 9 contained my foot.

Nike KD 10 Performance Review support

Support – If each component of a shoe doesn’t flow together and act as one then you’ll never form Voltron. Er, you’ll never find balance.

The heel area worked beautifully, but the midfoot left much to be desired. That lack of midfoot containment caused a sloppy fit which reduced the support offered. Had those nylon lace loops rode up the sidewall of the shoe a bit more, well, then you’d have the KD 9 Elite, and you likely wouldn’t have had a sloppy fit. Despite the base of the shoe being a solid platform, it just wasn’t enough to say these are cutting it in the support department. The pieces are there, they just don’t work well together.

Nike KD 10 Performance Review overall

Overall – The Nike KD 9 was an amazing shoe. The Nike KD 10 was almost an amazing shoe. It looks amazing, but it suffered in a few areas due to the bold new design.

If you don’t require a ton of lateral containment then you may enjoy these — they just weren’t for me. That isn’t a bad thing because no shoe is made for every person. However, helping you find the shoe that was made for you is why we’re here.

Nike KD 10 Performance Review scorecard

Traction – Looks can be deceiving. While the circular pattern looks amazing and should have taken care of multidirectional coverage like no other, the grip was inconsistent on a regular basis — making the Nike KD 10 consistently inconsistent.

The outsole plays very well outdoors, which is a plus, but it wasn’t designed with durability in mind. After only a few outdoor hoop sessions my frayed outsole looks like corn before it’s shucked. Or is it after it’s been shucked? You know all those weird hairy fibers inside the corn husk? That’s what I’m trying to say.

At any rate, there are talks that the initial colorways of the Nike KD 10 have lackluster traction while future colorways will have a slightly improved rubber compound. I’m not sure how true that is and if it is true it isn’t something that should happen — it makes the reviews inaccurate and it confuses consumers as to what colorways offer decent traction. Air Jordan XXXI anyone?

All I can do is share my experiences with the product I wore. In this circumstance, the traction on both of my KD 10s — yes, I have two pairs in two different sizes — just didn’t work out for me.

Nike KD 10 Performance Review cushion

Cushion – Full-length Max Zoom Air is back and it’s a bit firmer than it was the last time around. Don’t be put off when trying on the Nike KD 10 because you don’t feel the bounce right away like you might have with the KD 9. The 10s take a bit of breaking in before you can feel the responsiveness.

From a functional standpoint, the cushion here offers the same thing that the KD 9 did: the best impact protection Nike currently has available. Oh, and it’s still articulated in the forefoot so you can move about the court without too much restriction. I love the cushion and I hope its durability issues have been resolved. Not that I popped any of my pairs, but I know a few people that have — and I have received countless emails and DMs about other people’s pairs popping.

I think Nike has a great thing going with this type of Zoom Air and I hope it’s appreciated by the masses.

Nike KD 10 Performance Review materials

Materials – Flyknit, Flyknit everywhere. I love the materials that were used on the Nike KD 10, I just don’t love how they performed. Although, I believe it was a combination of the materials used and the lacing system that wound up causing my disappointment.

You have Flyknit from heel to toe on the Nike KD 10 and it’s infused with TPU threads — much like the Nike Kobe 11 Elite. Heat was applied to stress zones and the toebox area to weld the TPU and knit together for strength and durability. This causes a bit of a disconnect between the material and the foot, but it felt really nice overall.

The area that features 100% Flyknit is the tongue and collar. You can get these babies on and off your feet without issue, whereas the KD 9 was a bit of a struggle. By a bit of a struggle I mean they were an added workout to your daily regimen.

While being a knit, the Nike KD 10 is durable as hell which is something most people will appreciate. Containment could have been a lot better than it was, which brings me to the next topic.

Nike KD 10 Performance Review fit

Fit – Go down 1/2 size. Seriously. Wide footers, you’ll be good going true to size without needing to size up, but everyone else, go down 1/2 size. The disconnect I discussed above creates a bit of volume around the foot and when you have a knitted upper that isn’t something you want.

However, lockdown is the main culprit. Heel lockdown was great; the lacing system worked really well with the internal heel counter and heavily padded heel.

The midfoot lockdown was atrocious. Having the lacing sit at the bottom of the foot sounds great but when it’s coupled with a super stretchy midfoot section, lateral containment goes out the window. When I’d try to compensate for the lack of containment by tightening the lacing, those loops would pull and dig into the bottom of my feet. Not only was this painful, but it didn’t work.

Using a setup like this really has me appreciating the current method of lacing — nylon loops that run down the foot and attach at the footbed. You’re able to properly tighten sections of the shoe where you need it — at the throat, whether it be at the midfoot, forefoot, or heel — all while the nylon strands act as suspension, bridging the gap between the top of the foot and the bottom of the foot.

Nike KD 9 Performance Review you will love

Traction – I keep doing this, but I really can’t help it. The brain can’t help but judge certain things by how they look prior to experiencing it first hand. Traction on the Nike KD 9 looks like it would be trash, but it performed the exact opposite. In fact, there were times when traction was too good. Will every pair perform at such a high level? Without testing each pair it’s impossible to say. What I do know is that the rubber compound used on the versions with solid rubber outsoles will offer you incredibly sticky traction.

Were there times when you had to wipe? Yes, as is the case with most shoes. However, if I didn’t have time to wipe during game play the traction still held strong until I was able to get a chance to clean the outsole real quick and 2017 most popular sneaker Shoes: air jordan 14 dmp for sale

Nike KD 9 Performance Review CushionCushion – Full length Max Zoom in articulated fashion. This sh*t is amazing. Smooth transition, ultimate impact protection, and ultimate responsiveness. This cushion setup is everything you’d expect it to be and then some. The best feature is not what was just mentioned, but the fact that Nike was able to provide such attributes to the setup while still retaining mobility. All positions will be able to wear and enjoy these bad boys. Unlike full length setups of the past, these aren’t stiff or rigid to move around in. You’re fairly close to the ground, and you don’t feel as if you’re wearing a full length Air unit due to the segregated forefoot.

Nike KD 9 Performance Review Cushion 2I was slightly disappointed with the full length Zoom setup we received in last year’s KD 8, but Nike made up for it with these guys. One thing to note is that the lateral forefoot section will collapse a bit if you land on it. With the KD 8, there were two TPU bumpers in that same location to prevent such a thing from occurring. I never rolled my ankle, or received any injury from the issue. However, it was something that was noticeable enough to throw into the review. When jumping, whether it be for a jump shot, to contest a shot, or for a rebound, try to not land on the lateral section of your forefoot. Sometimes you can’t help it due to being awkwardly vulnerable while in the air, but try to avoid it as best you can.

Nike KD 9 Performance Review MaterialsMaterials – Flyknit. Not the heavily glued Flyknit, this is just Flyknit and some nylon backing it. Someone asked why would Nike use Flyknit if they were going to back it with nylon. The answer: it allows the Flyknit to do what Flyknit does while still providing a level of support that’s playable. Nylon won’t stretch in the same way that a knit would so the material will hold tight while still remaining flexible.

This is the best iteration of Flyknit we’ve received on a Nike Basketball model to date. I’m not going to go as far as saying it’s the best thing in the world, but if you’re like me and enjoy woven/ knitted uppers then you’re most likely going to enjoy the hell out of this setup. The material also got stepped on quite a bit, and while it’s dirty, it’s still in one piece.

The rear section is textile mesh, foam, and Fuse, and it’s nothing fancy. The rear section should provide enough structure and support for the foot so this setup works perfectly even though it doesn’t look as pretty as the forefoot area.

Nike KD 9 Performance Review Fit 2Fit – Like every other KD model that’s ever existed, I highly recommend trying these on in-store prior to purchasing. I went down 1/2 size and length wise they fit perfectly. They’re hard as hell to get on my foot, but once they’re on I’m locked in perfectly, just the way I like it. However, the left shoe’s seam gave me a ton of pain for the first few wears. It eventually broke-in, but it sure as hell was painful until then.

The one piece upper boot construction and the Nylon lacing system work well for the size I’m wearing. However, the lacing cables don’t move much so if you end up with a size that doesn’t fit you perfectly then you may have some minor heel slipping. Even though the heel is heavily padded and sculpted, that won’t makeup for an incorrect size issue.

Brace wearers: it’s pretty important that you bring your brace with you to try on shoes. That’s the only way to really ensure a sneaker will accommodate your additional attachment.

Nike KD 9 Performance Review SupportSupport – The Nike KD 9’s support is essentially riding on one key aspect: the overall fit. If these fit sloppy in any way then we’ll have another LeBron 13 Low situation on our hands — with that shoe I was unable to fit 1/2 size down in which meant that the ankle lacing structure and heel section were just poorly designed. If your pair fits you perfectly then you’ll end up with a shoe that offers a one-to-one fit and plenty of mobility without lacking support.

The rest of the shoe is fairly standard as the rear section has the typical internal TPU heel counter. And, no, the tiny little KD logo is not the heel counter. It’s just a piece of plastic glued to the exterior section of the shoe. Meanwhile, the cushion system is flat and shaped just like your foot, providing you with great stability.

Nike KD 9 Performance Review OverallOverall – Nike did a decent job with the KD 8 while the KD 8 Elite felt like a cheap, unnecessary, and unfinished version of the KD 8. Luckily, that isn’t the case with the Nike KD 9. You’ll receive solid traction, fantastic cushion, great materials, and if you get the size that fits you best, you’ll also receive a solid and secure fit for optimal support. Some may think that getting all this for $150 is a steal, and I whole-heartily disagree. Getting all this for $150 is exactly what we should be getting. $150 isn’t exactly chump change. Paying above $150 for a sneaker is really just paying for a novelty item. It might look cool, but it’s usually not worth it.

However, your money will be well spent when it comes to the Nike KD 9. If I like something enough to want to grab another colorway then that’s how I know that they’re pretty money on-court.

Nike Air Shake ndestrukt white red Performance Reviews

Nike Air Shake ndestrukt white red Performance Reviews
Really? A performance review on a 20 year old shoe? Serious? Ab-so-lutely. Why not? If the Nike Air Shake Ndestrukt was good enough to help Dennis Rodman win rebounding titles and NBA titles with the Chicago Bulls in the late ’90s, it’s good enough for me to hit the court in now. Besides, the two colorways released so far (this one and the black Playoff colorway) have been flying off shelves. So, does the Nike Air Shake Ndestrukt stand the test of time, or is it a shoe better left in our rainbow-haired, nipple-pierced, Rodman memories? Let’s do this.

Nike Air Shake Ndestrukt traction

Yeah, this is the stuff that haunts other traction patterns’ dreams. A wide herringbone pattern that honestly sticks to any surface that was played on — rubber floor, clean wood, dusty-@$$ 24 Hour fitness courts, and both rough and smooth outdoor concrete courts. It just worked, and even though it isn’t labeled DRC like the original (that was the XDR of the time) it shows little to no signs of wearing out (these photos were all taken after the review was done).

Dust isn’t a problem because of the width between the lines, but the flat blades do grab all the grime and dirt. However, the texture you see on the pattern keeps the Nike Air Shake Ndestrukt from becoming completely slick and sliding. One thing 90’s shoes had down? Traction. It seems like every pattern was good on any court. Of course, they all weighed 62 pounds per pair, but they knew how to endure.

Nike Air Shake Ndestrukt cushioning

Uh-oh. Traction definitely still holds up, but we have come to our first sign that this is definitely a ’90s shoe. When the Shake Ndestrukt was originally released Zoom was a baby and Max Air was everything (Uptempo, More Uptempo, Pippen 1, etc.). The Shake Ndestrukt uses a visible Air unit in the heel and the forefoot uses…polyurethane.

PU isn’t bad for a cushioning set-up…in 1996. Today, it is definitely behind the times, as it should be. The deal with PU is break-in time. You hear people talk about having to break in New Yeezys Boost or Zoom shoes, but there is nothing like the time it takes to break in a leather/synthetic shoe with a poly midsole. After about six days of wear, the midsole actually felt the same as the first time. Serious — it takes a long time.

The plus is the PU lasts forever, until it oxidizes and crumbles from age. Shock absorption was non-existent in the forefoot, but court feel and response time was actually decent. The harder PU allows your foot to push and immediately respond into the next move, unlike a shoe with softer foam or Air that will have a sinking-in and lag time before getting back to form.

The heel unit does the job and breaks in sooner than the forefoot, which is good. No problems with any jarring or impact injury back there, and housing the Air unit in PU makes the shoe more stable than using a completely exposed Max unit. Plus, there is still something about a window to the soul (sole) of a shoe.

Nike Air Shake Ndestrukt materials

Every retail site says the Nike Air Shake Ndestrukt retro uses a “leather upper with high-top collar for a secure fit.” Now, there may be real leather, especially on the overlay, but it isn’t a completely leather upper. Make no mistake — the materials are still really nice, and the closest you will get to a leather ’90s model. But the rand and toebox are definitely using a synthetic and it’s harder and smoother than the tumbled feel of the overlay wrap. That makes sense — the outer is stiffer for stability while the overlay has to flex and bend with the ankle.

The base of the overlay is old-school ballistic mesh and it is not breathable. This is the stuff the Jordan XI is made of, and while it is durable, it also needs a break in period. Until it does soften up, the lacing system is extremely difficult to get tight enough to play, but more on that in fit.

The lace loops feature metal grommets, which means they are super-durable. But, pull hard enough, and the grommets rip through the leather. Guess how I would know? Yep — second pair on the way. The ankle area is heavily padded and seriously hot, but the feel is great; it wraps completely around your joints and hugs you like that fat aunt at the reunion.

Nike Air Shake Ndestrukt fit

Stay true to size, or even a half size down if you want a super-snug fit once the upper breaks in. Leather stretches, but most synthetics won’t, so if you expect the toebox and rand to move out, think again. In my TTS, I had about a thumb’s width from the end of my toe to the toebox and it was perfect. (For reference, I am a 10.5 in Rose 7, Nike Kobe 11, and Curry 3, with the same space in the length.) Width-wise, wide footers should love the Shake Ndestrukt, as it allows for all foot shapes to wear it.

Now, for lockdown, and as mentioned above, give the shoe a lengthy break-in period. Initially, the upper is stiff and will not wrap around your foot like shoes of today. Stay with it because it gets much better. Once you figure out the lacing you will get an absolute lock from heel to toe. (My method: pull tight, but not from the top loop — start at the bottom and work up. Tie the shoes before going through the elastic loop, then push the knot and loops into the elastic band).

The overlay was done right, wrapping the upper into the sole while the laces pull the foot right with the shoe into the footbed and down. The heel is not a problem with the thick padding cutting any movement out completely. Again, if they feel loose or bulky, they are, but give the shoe time to break in.

Nike Air Shake Ndestrukt support

It wouldn’t be a true ’90s shoe without great support. Designers two decades ago believed the stiffer and wider the better (be mature), and in some ways, they were right. The stiffer upper does provide great lateral stability and containment, keeping stretch and movement to a minimum — once broken in. The wider base gives you a platform to land on that won’t roll over or buckle.

Again, encapsulating the Air unit keeps it from falling on harsh landings. The midsole is a thing of beauty; it wraps up perfectly on the lateral side to 1). provide support on plants and cuts, keeping the foot over the footbed, and 2). give the foot a “starting block” on those same movements. For example: you are guarding a wing, said player goes left and crosses back right. You plant on your right foot to cut that player off — the Shake Ndestrukt holds your foot so you don’t roll over.

Now you need to move into place to cut the next move off. A shoe without the lateral containment? You are still going the other direction (Melo M13). The Shake? You have pushed off and are hopefully in position — methods to the design madness.

The Shake Ndestrukt is from a time before carbon fiber shank plates, or even TPU plates, so the midsole is molded with a higher arch support and thick PU cushioning in that area. No problems with downward bends, but the overall transition is a little clunky because of the stiffness of the tooling. Unfortunately, this doesn’t go away with wear — it’s just a downside to playing in a classic.Nike Air Shake Ndestrukt overall 3Surprisingly (at least to me), the Shake Ndestrukt is an overall good performer. The cushioning could be better, and the upper is stiff, but the traction is still killer and stability and support are still great — unless you step on a foot. Again, break-in time is completely necessary, but once it’s broken you will have a locked in, durable, stable ride for the summer outdoor games.

If you need or want a super-sleek, well-cushioned ride, well, that wasn’t Worm and neither is this shoe. One surprising thing to be aware of, at least to some of us who saw these sit on the original release, is that the Shake Ndestrukt is selling out almost everywhere. Finish Line is sold out, but retailers like Eastbay, Foot Locker, and Champs have restocked after selling out. The white/navy OG colorway is coming, and being an original colorway, look for it to move quickly as well.

Overall, this is as close to an OG for a Nike retro that we have seen in a long time. Will you rebound like Rodman? Probably not, but since his short-shorts are coming back, you might as well grab a pair, dye your hair red, and pierce your face. You know, for old times’ sake.

Kanye West's Adidas Yeezy Two New Colorway Release this month

1.Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Semi Frozen

Just last week, Adidas New yeezys release dates leaker Yeezy Mafia announced that the Three Stripes would be releasing Yeezy Boost 350 V2 s in a Blutin/Grethr/Hirere colorway this December. Now, Yeezy fans can expect yet another pair of 350 V2s to arrive at the end of the year.

Announced by Yeezy Mafia on Twitter, the latest Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2s feature a Semi Frozen Yellow/Raw Steel/Red colorway. While no images of the sneakers have yet to surface—just a Photoshop rendering—the color code indicates Kanye West and Adidas straying away from the typically neutral colors found on Yeezys for brighter colors.

Even though Yeezy Mafia has been accurate with information months in advance, the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 "Semi Yellow" is purely speculation as of now. Stay posted to Sole Collector for a first look at the sneakers and official release information in the future.

2.Adidas Yeezy Powerphase Calabasas
Kanye West's Adidas Yeezy Powerphase is releasing again very soon. According to leaker account Yeezy Mafia, the Calabasas-branded sneakers will launch online via Adidas on June 4, with reservations hitting the brand's Confirmed app on May 31.

Adidas has not announced the re-release of the Kanye West sneakers in question, but info from the brand should coming soon if they are indeed arriving next week.

This Adidas Yeezy model has been one of the most difficult ones to buy so far, its release to date limited just to West's Yeezy Supply website. Despite the shoe being a no-frills retro model, it sells for around $700 on the secondary market thanks to the limited nature of its release.

The Adidas Yeezy Powerphase originally released on March 28.

How to design of Yeezy Boost by Kanye West?

It's been a long journey

In January 2014, a video surfaced of Kanye West talking through his second capsule collection with French denim label A.P.C. (It’s since been scrubbed from the Internet.) Standing in a Paris showroom, West spent nearly fifteen minutes explaining to a room of fashion editors every stitch, detail, and decision that went into the military-inspired capsule and new yeezys . He talked at length about his specific design choices—like how he chose certain fabrics while picturing “dudes in Milan being shot by [street style photographer] Tommy Ton”—but also about how this capsule collection was symbolic of a new era for him personally, one where he might be seen not as a rapper or a celebrity, but as a fashion designer. “I think, like, this moment right here is maybe the first time where people can see, like, ‘Oh that’s his opinion,” he said. But Kanye’s history in the fashion industry is as long and involved as his career in music, and since he burst onto the scene in 2004 with The College Dropout, his impact on men’s fashion has been immense. Maybe even unmatched. And yet it’s only now, on the day that his new collaboration with Adidas will be unveiled at a highly anticipated fashion show in New York, that he’s finally getting the platform to express his vision in a way he feels he has long deserved.

2008: Kanye Wears Unreleased Colorway of the Nike Air Yeezy 1 At The Grammys

During his onstage performance at the ‘08 Grammys, fans got a first look at what would eventually become the Nike Air Yeezy, though the versions that would eventually hit stores would be much more colorful than the black/white colorway he wore on stage. Later in the year, on his Glow in the Dark Tour, Kanye wore an unreleased purple and orange colorway. This marked the first time Nike had given a signature shoe to a non-athlete, signaling Kanye as a pioneer in the sneaker world—and introducing a famous musician who wanted to reimagine the concept of “celebrity designer.”

April 2009: The Air Yeezy 1 Hits Stores

For all of three seconds. As expected (and thanks to a super limited quantity of shoes made), the Air Yeezy 1 sold out almost instantly. It retailed for $215, and was released in three colorways—grey (released in April), black (May), and tan (June).

September 2010: Kanye West Collaborates with Phillip Lim on the Wardrobe for West’s Short Film, “Runaway.”

Say what you will about the film’s plot and acting, but a couple of things are for sure—the music and wardrobe are great. Made specifically for West by designer Phillip Lim, the looks showed off a super-modern, elegant take on classic pieces like white button-down shirts, black trousers, and formalwear.

 

Late 2011: Kanye Wears Samples of the Air Yeezy 2 on the Watch The Throne Tour

The only thing to get more media attention than the leather kilt were the Nike Air Yeezy 2 samples West wore while on tour for WTT, which, like the Air Yeezy 1s he wore at the 2008 Grammys, were done up in a monochromatic color scheme that would never see store shelves.

April 2012: Kanye West Starts Dating Kim Kardashian

The world’s most talked about (and arguably most influential from a fashion perspective) couple is born.

June 2012: The Air Yeezy 2 Is Released in Two Colorways, “Platinum” and “Black Solar Red”

Like the first Air Yeezy, these kicks were priced higher than typical Nike offerings ($250 this time around), were extremely limited (certain reports say only 1,500 pairs were made), and kids lined up for weeks to get their hands on a pair. Today, pairs are for sale via Flight Club for over $5,000.

From a design perspective, the Air Yeezy 2 was a similar but much sleeker style than the original, and featured an embossed reptile print on the side that reinforced the dark, luxurious aesthetic West wore on the Watch The Throne tour. This would be the last silhouette Kanye designed for Nike.

October 2013: Kanye Collaborates With Maison Margiela on Yeezus Tour Wardrobe, Wes Lang on Tour Merch

After name-checking Margiela on Watch the Throne, West turned to the Maison for his Yeezus tour wardrobe, including silk robes, crystal masks, and custom versions of the brand’s “Future” sneaker. In fact, the entire wardrobe was custom-made for West and was never to be released by the house.

For the merchandise, West tapped popular Los Angeles-based artist Wes Lang, whose hand-drawn themes of death and religion complemented the album’s raw feel. One design, which featured a confederate flag, sparked controversy, to which West replied, “React how you want. The confederate flag represents slavery—that’s my abstract take on it—and I made the song ‘New Slaves’. So I took the Confederate flag, and I made it my flag now. So what you gonna do about it?”

 

December 2013: Kanye West Signs With Adidas

The transformation from the Swoosh to the three stripes became complete. Kanye got the joint venture deal he wanted, with royalties, and one worth more, according to his claims on the Breakfast Club radio show, than the $4 Million dollars a year he said Nike offered him for previously undisclosed deal.

And just as soon as they arrived, they’re gone. Current asking price? $5500 on Flight Club. Kanye’s relationship with Nike? Officially dead.

August 2014: Kanye Tells GQ His New Album is On Hold So He Can Work on Adidas

“I was thinking it could somehow come out in June, like Yeezus, and just kill it for the summer. But then I'm like, I have to work on Adidas and be with my child.”

September 2014: Kanye Promises to Make His Adidas Collection Mass-Market

During one of his signature onstage rants while on the Yeezus Tour in Perth, Australia, West promised to make the new Adidas collection widely available: “I heard those screams [from people who weren’t able to purchase the limited edition Yeezy 2 Nike collaboration], and I wanted to do something about that. So when I ask next year if you were able to get the new Yeezys, you’ll be able to say you at least were able to try on a pair, to cop a pair.”

November 2014: Images of Kanye’s New Adidas Sneaker Leak

Thanks to a pair of wandering eyes (and a camera phone) from someone seated behind West on a commercial flight, we were given our first image of what would eventually become the Yeezy 750 Boost. The Internet exploded and the hype reached a fever pitch.

February 11, 2015: Kanye Reveals There Are More Yeezys Coming

On Ryan Seacrest’s show, West said that while only 9,000 pairs of the Yeezy 750 Boost will hit store shelves this Saturday, there is a lot more to come. “There's only 9,000, and also because they're $350, if they're out of anyone's price range.... I just want everyone to be safe and patient. I know you can run up on this 14-year-old kid and take his Yeezys, but just be patient because we'll make more Yeezys.... When I was growing up, kids wanted Jordans; kids got killed for Jordans. Now that I'm in a position, I'm going to make sure everyone gets Yeezys.” So far, a year later, that hasn't exactly come true.

 

February 12, 2015: Showtim

Yeezy season is finally here. And if we have any apprehensions, it’s that even with all the good will in the world, mass-market products are uncharted territory for West. In all of his prior collaborations, exclusivity was itself a crucial part of the appeal. This was especially true with the Air Yeezy 2s—a sneaker so rare, just seeing a pair in the street was special.

As a musician, what makes Kanye West one of the greats is his ability to innovate—to push the sonic boundaries of hip-hop. The raw aggression of Yeezus is what is made it a critical success, but it also sold less than any Kanye West solo album ever has. And generally speaking, it’s easier to get people to change the song on their phone than it is to get them to change their shoes. Weird music is usually a personal, private experience. Weird clothes are a public display of taste and personality. And if West really wants to become the next Ralph Lauren, that’s going to take some time.

But with all eyes on him and (in all likelihood) an instant sell-out on his hands, West’s on the right track to becoming the force in fashion he believes he can be.

June 2015: The First Low-Top Yeezy Boost, the $200 350 "Turtle Dove" Arrives

It drops on Adidas's Confirmed app, online, at various retailers, though few are actually able to secure a pair.

The shoe featured one visible line of stitching on the front, canvas detailing on the heel, black YZY detailing on the inner side and adidas boost technology in the rubber sole. Retailing for $200, the sneaker was available in a range of stores  The Pirate Black colourway followed Turtle Dove in August 2015, with Moonrock released three months later,and the oxford tan release after then .

 

2016: Kanye unveils yeezy season 2

 

The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 was revealed at the Yeezy Season 3 show and was released on September 24, 2016. It is considered a remake of the previous Yeezy Boost 350 and features several outer changes, such as a different pattern, removed heel tab, and a large stripe running around the outer side of the shoe with the words "SPLY-350". The sole also has been updated to be transparent and features full-length visibility of the boost material midsole through a grid-pattern opening on the outsole.

nike lebron 14 performance review bryanhinkle

One of the hardest things to grasp in the NBA is the fact that Lebron James is 32 years old.

From the kid rocking Zoom Generations in his first game, through the different teams, Finals failures, championships in Miami and CLE, to now being an elder statesman in the League, one thing has been consistent: he has worn a swoosh on-foot.

How does the Nike LeBron 14 compare to the past greats, like the 2, 8, and X? Well, you have to read…

Depending on the floor, great. Or not great. Good, maybe? Really, on a semi-clean, fairly finished floor, the traction was really good. A step below the Rose 7 and Curry 2, but still really good.

The little nubs on the pods wear down quickly, leaving a flat surface across the pods, which actually made the traction better. The large flex grooves also help with grip, allowing you to really dig into the floor and push off easier — more flex equals more of the sole touching the floor, meaning more rubber to grab. But really, Nike, it’s time to drop the translucent — we all know by now what Zoom looks like and most of us can feel it when it’s good, so get us back to solid rubber and consistent traction.

Nike has been on a serious come-up this season, giving us Max Zoom in the KD9, full-length Zoom in the Hyperdunk 2016 Elite (and the regular segmented version wasn’t bad either), and full-length unlocked Zoom in the Jordan XXXI. Now, the massive Zoom pods in the Nike LeBron 14 join the club, and they make the shoe extremely fun.

Even with the Zoom broken into the smaller units, it is still bouncy, responsive, and cushions every landing and step perfectly. It is bottom loaded, under the Phylon, so the extreme response like the KD9 and Jordan XX8 isn’t there. However, it feels more stable than both of those shoes and actually plays smoother in transition because of it.

The heel is Zoom across the whole section and is contained enough that off-center landings never feel like the shoe will roll. Having the pods split like they are also allows for extreme flexibility, something most LeBron shoes lack; it improves traction and court feel while cutting down on foot fatigue.

Mesh, mesh, and more mesh make up the upper of the Nike LeBron 14 flip the switch . This isn’t bad, but for the price it isn’t T-bone either. The upper is super-soft and feels great on-foot, with the foam between the mesh providing comfort and padding over all stitches and possible hot spots. The toe bumper/rand and the tongue logo feature a supple leather (wish there was more of that here than just the detailing). Flywire appears again in the forefoot to help with lacing and lockdown. Pro Combat padding makes an appearance on the ankle/heel strap. Overall, the materials get the job done in a nice package, but they just don’t feel like $175 materials. If you enjoyed the Soldier X, well, ditto.

Very questionable. The one piece bootie/upper system has been around long enough to make a better showing. The forefoot and midfoot are locked — no movement at all in my testing. The shoe was cinched tight, making the Flywire rub into the foot a little, but movement was nuh-uh.

Length-wise, true to size was the way to go — about a finger’s width between the big toe and the end of the shoe. The problem was the heel. If the top laces were pulled super tight, heel slip went away. Otherwise, the wide mouth opening and the lack of a strong lacing system led to heel slip every time. The strap was supposed to help, but being a layover (instead of a hook and loop) means there was no force to pull against when tightening it — it just “laid over” the instep. The strap did pull the foot into the heel cup, but the ankle collar was still loose and slipped. If you don’t mind pulling your shoes reallllly tight (I don’t), then fit should be good.

Not much above the midsole, really. The strap does try to pull the foot into that external heel piece, but again, it is working against itself. The biggest help for support is the flexible outsole and wide base. The base keeps you from rolling over on any landings and the outsole is flexible enough that some part of it is able to keep floor contact at (almost) all times.

The midfoot Zoom unit helps with arch support by not letting the bridge fall and injure your foot. The heel cup is low, making the LeBron 14 really feel and play like a low, but it is made of hard plastic and is stable enough to hold you in. The lacing system doesn’t really do anything at all, except heel keep your foot in, so support from that area won’t happen. Overall, this is probably the least supportive LeBron signature ever.

Fun, fun, fun. I never thought a LeBron shoe and fun could be said together. The overall court feel, transition, cushioning, and clean-floor traction make the LeBron 14 feel fast and smooth to play in. The flexibility and lack of Posite wings or support allows the player to feel free and quick, while the Zoom is just responsive enough to keep your legs from dying without bouncing like Tigger.

If you have stayed away from LeBrons in the past because of weight, stiffness, or looking like boots, don’t be scared, because the LeBron 14 is none of those. If you like court feel, speed, and cushioning, the 14 is for you. Whatever the delay from Nike to get these on shelves, do it again — performance should trump technology every time, and when you can include both, like in the LeBron 14, you have a shoe fit for a King.
