Air Jordan 12 ‘Gym Red’ Performance Review

Posted on

Air Jordan 12 “Gym Red” is a white, red, and black version of Michael Jordan’s twelfth signature shoe.

Today we are talking about it .

For the boxes , it is nothing special .

There are details of the side .

 

It comes in a Gym Red, Black and White theme which is sure to stir some buzz.

Using red through the tumbled leather uppers, tongue and laces, black is accented on the Jumpman, liner and down the heel. It is not only the amazing quality , but also the colorway like the fire  which  popular in the sneaker world .

 

For the material ,  Jordan 12 with a tumbled red leather upper accented by a white mudguard for an inverted take on the classic Cherry 12s.

I have to say I love this colorway very much . and the leather seem a great   , however  the leather had a zero ventilation so your body’s heat and moisture . The mesh was used on the tongue but it isn’t anything that provides you with air flow. for the fans , actually it doesn’t a matter .

For the traction : Herringbone  used which a fashion to the previous Air Jordan 12 signature.  The phrase, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” always remind us  that it  changed much . and the performance  are  well .

 

For the supporting , the support is great as usually  while the overall fit and lockdown take care of the rest. there are some form in the heel to protect the feet  and 23 logo show the classic Jordan shoes as usually .

For cushioning , It utilize the full length Zoom Air from heel to toe.yeah ,it is  continuous air bag and feels amazing! we can feel comfortable enough wearing casually but you won’t experience what these can truly do until you play in them. and seems it is part of ours. that is the best part what I love .

 

overall , the great fitting ,Midfoot and heel lockdown were great, and the classic colorway .   it is perfect shoes  . what do you thinking about it ?

Adidas DAME 4 Performance Review

Posted on

Before we talking about he Dame 4 , we need to remind the Dame 3 which using somewhat of a new design, Damian Lillard’s third signature shoe has taken the same mid-top form which following the  previous model along with the bootie cut.

There are some details as below :

There are a lot of people buy the Dame 3 last year ,  not only the price is lower , but the Adidas with new design and tech . As the  NBA’s best rapper,Damian Lillard are surging.so the didas Hoops has laced Lillard up with the cleanest rendition of his Dame 3.

Damian Lillard’s third signature shoe has taken the same mid-top form from his previous model along with the bootie cut. In addition we have TPU across the panels that integrates into the lacing system which will allow you to customize the lockdown. The heel counter has returned and instead of a loop, the heel extends up to the height of the tongue. The other change is the Three Stripes branding which has been removed from the uppers and placed on the sole.

There are some details of picture for this shoes .

  It Dubbed the “Rip City” colorway which  the first sneaker sees the team’s red, white, and black used to decorate the sneaker’s mesh upper. The second “Un-dyed” colorway sports a cleaner look, combining an upper that contains both white and cream elements with a brown gum sole.

There are special design for the lace system and there is the logo —DAME Time:35.12 – 25.6.4 – 6 – 0.9 – 0 number in the tongue .

A sock-like fit on the upper that keeps the explosive guard locked in

For the material , It utilized a combination of mesh and synthetic materials throughout. it is more hard then the classic  Premiknit . and Dame 4 have more layer then moven mesh . there is a layer of white mesh surface, with black lines, then outer layer  of Dame 4  is a circular knitting. it is  perfect then last version . I have to say I love it very much . not only the durability is amazing , but the   Ventilation  is great .

In my 36 years on earth I have tried pretty much every sneaker technology, and nothing compares to boost in performance and comfort, and most important longevity.

 

For the lace system , it is special .  it is one of the shoes DAME 4 features, the front lace  buried in the inside,  then there are 3 red frosted hose lines  through the shoes lace .the three  Hoses  are  very sticky, dont worry it will be  loose when you playing. the lace system will be lockdown your feet well

 

 

The shoes strap wrote the DAME Time:35.12 – 25.6.4 – 6 – 0.9 – 0 includes his high school coach performance beyond with 35 points and 12 rebounds , and averaged 25 points and 6 rebounds in the last season 4 assists data, and to show the number  6 is representative of  the NBA sequence .DAME Time was born, in the 2013-14 playoff  game , 0.9 seconds must also the last  numbers .  in addition to 0 representative number, also represents the basketball career from Oakland to Ogden to Oregen.

“YKWTII ” was the logo that Lillard said “You Know What Time It Is”. The heel counter has returned and instead of a loop, the heel extends up to the height of the tongue.

 

For the cushioning . with  a full-length BOUNCE cushion provides him the support he needs when he’s at top form on both sides of the court.

There’s various overlays used over boost, and then  running shoes are just pure boost. Boost for basketball is excellent, it’s not set up like boost for a running shoes. we can feel comfort .

The thickness of the boost also has a lot to do with how soft it will be.With that said I also love bounce and it’s great for a number of applications bball, running, and training. Also thickness in heel vs forefoot and so on. It’s an infinitely tuneable material and Addidas tailors it to it’s intended use. And they are getting better at that.Boost midsoles have pushed Adidas to the top along with the influence of kanye

For the traction:The black part which hollowed out  is TPU.Dame 4 utilized  the herringbone  blade traction which  offers multi-directional coverage . you can do whatever you want to do , the blade traction should have you covered.Bounce performs way better than Boost. You don’t get that sinking feeling, it doesn’t bottom out as easily or as quickly, and it’s much more responsive.

Overall  ,There’s no other midsole ever made that compares to it’s comfort. I love the Dame 4 with the comfortable material and best cushioning .

PS: :About Air Jordan 32 -The Air Jordan 32 Is Yet Another Step Forward for the Brand

The Jordan Brand has officially unveiled the latest silhouette in Michael Jordan’s iconic signature line, the Air Jordan XXX2. Following in the steps of the Air Jordan 1 inspired Air Jordan XXX1, the 32 draws its inspiration from the Air Jordan 2.

While it mimics the Air Jordan 2’s retro model design, the 32 is built for the modern age of basketball sneakers and is the first signature Air Jordan model to feature a Flyknit upper alongside premium leathers.

The Air Jordan XXX2 pays homage to the AJ2 in numerous ways, such as the luxury leathers and shaping. The Peter Moore designed Air Jordan 2 launched in 1986 and went in a different direction after the Air Jordan 1 model. Jordan wanted a sneaker that could not only be played on the court but one that was crafted to be worn off the court. The brand went to Italy with the thought in mind to create the first luxurious basketball sneaker crafted with fine leathers. It forever changed how we look at style and performance models in today’s game.

“We’ve always explored new materials and technology to create the best game shoe,” Michael Jordan said in a press release. “That was evident when we went to Italy to make the II, and it still rings true today. On the XXXII, we challenged our designers to push the limits while staying true to the brand’s DNA.”

The Air Jordan 32 looks to be another major innovative step for the brand. It incorporates an unmasked Flyknit upper with high-tenacity yarn that combines stretch, support and zonal lockdown. The Flight Speed technology makes its return and has been a performance favorite due the explosive lift it gives players—see Russell Westbrook for an example.

“With Jordan shoes, we obsess the style in a way that puts many of the performance elements under the hood, so to speak,” said XXX2 designer, Tate Kuerbis. “For example, I wanted to make the laces just disappear into the knit structure, but inside there is a whole harness system with webbing that really locks down your foot.”

I tried on the Air Jordan XXXII a few weeks back, and it is arguably the most comfortable sneaker from the brand I have ever worn. The flyknit combined with the support from the heel pad makes it a beast on the court. As always, MJ had the last word on the sneaker and even forgot to take them off during a trial test before heading outside to the store. They are that comfortable.

I must say I love what the Jordan Brand is doing, drawing back from their rich history to create newer versions that are fit for today’s age. Prior to this current design inspiration model, the Air Jordan 30 lacked inspiration and didn’t really hit well with consumers. The Air Jordan XXX1 linked perfectly with the history of the Air Jordan 1, and the storytelling was refreshed for the younger generation that never knew what made the Air Jordan 1 such a special shoe. The XXX1 is one of the greatest basketball silhouettes of all-time and the XXXII has all the tools to be even better.

When asking if the Air Jordan XXX3 would draw inspiration from the Air Jordan 3, the brand designers looked at me and smirked. Nothing more.

For the first time, the Air Jordan XXXII will launch globally in a mid and low version. The AJ XXXII Rosso Corsa colorway will be available on Sept. 30 while the AJ XXXII Bred mid and lows launch Oct. 18.

Air Jordan 13 Bin23 Performance Review

Posted on

Jordan Brand Bin 23 Collection —the Air Jordan XIII (13) Premio  was released in 2010 . but it is still the classic shoes so far .

There is the info as below :

Air Jordan XIII (13) Premio
Style:
417212-601
Color: Team Red/Desert Clay-White
Release Date: August 21st, 2010
Retail Price: $175.00

Now today we are talking about it

The color-scheme chosen for the Premio XIII is actually an older concept, dating back to the inception of the Air Jordan XIII; this combination of colors served as the inspiration to other Air Jordan XIII colorways, like the Wheat Retro of 2005 as well as the original Black/Chutney low.

There is a logo ‘BIN 23 ‘ with red . I like the logo very much . The stamp on there like a wax stamp . this is may favorite parts

For the material , It is used the good leather . and it is used different colorway and material  to stitching. the clay suede of the side  are soft and snug .The colorway look beautiful , anyway it is perfect . but the Ventilation are still no good  as the last version .

The colorway of Team Red and Desert Clay has been taken out of the vault and used fittingly for the Bin 23 Collection,

for the 3M , there is special logo –Jumpmen . what a amazing it is .

There are  a Clay suede which soft and seems snug .

For the cushioning . Heel and forefoot Zoom Air cushion. It’s responsive, resilient and comfortable. It is soft  . I feel better on the court .

there are a logo of bottom —Jumpmen . it is the symbol as usually .

 

For the traction , . It just wasn’t as awesome as I remembered it being with the Original and first round Retro releases.Lateral movements and front to back coverage are plentiful yet offer little restriction with movements.  However it is stiff . I dont like it the stiff material .

Nike Kobe AD Mid Performance Review

Posted on

The Mamba Mentality has nothing to do with basketball.so what is  the Mamba Mentality?It is challenge. The five colors of the Mamba Mentality are blue (honesty), red (passion), grey (detached), purple (fearless), and yellow (optimism), and these are the emotions that Kobe Bryant has meshed to form his own elevated perspective on basketball.

Today we are talking about the Nike Kobe AD Mid .

 

For material :It is used the martial ,actually I have a little  disappointed . I can feel the Moisture becomes an issue within the shoe rather quickly because of the lack of ventilation. When you have moisture buildup within a shoe, and you have friction involved, blistering is inevitable. especially for the summer .

However ,the materials are not breathable at all.The biggest concern is still concentrated in the suede body,   leather has some wear and fold after playing longer .

For traction :  translucent rubber utilized , it is great for me . though it is not easy to keep clean .and this outsole was loud. but the gripping is amazing . it is seems can lockdown the shoes between the bottom and court.

For cushioning : The setup is amazing . The midsole is Lunarlon and the heel features a large volume Zoom Air unit. Impact protection and energy return are the heel’s main focus.Cushioning system in which the basic  signature shoe of  kobe shoes , followed by zoom and lunar as in the past the stable configuration of the forefoot. This is zoom the thickness of conscience, heel is soft elastic foot.

 

For supporting :The internal heel counter does a good job keeping your foot on the footbed.  you can feel it is snug. and you can do anything  .However, the lateral outrigger is much better than the one featured on the original Kobe A.D.There are TPU to improve the supporting .Overall , Ventilation and material quality need to improve . but traction was awesome and the cushion was solid. If the Kobe AD Mid had a knitted or mesh upper it’d be one hell of a shoe. and we hope KOBE  shoes will better next time .

Better Air Jordan 31 VS Kobe AD Reviews

Posted on

The Air Jordan 31 is Michael Jordan’s thirty-first signature shoe. It was first unveiled on July 20th, 2016 at a live event in Las Vegas. The shoe draws inspiration from the Air Jordan 1 and features a mix of leather, Flyweave, Zoom Air, and more.

The Kobe AD is Kobe Bryant’s twelfth signature Nike shoe. It is the first sneaker to release after Kobe’s retirement from the NBA. It features a mix of Flywire, mesh, Lunarlon, and Zoom Air.

So today we are talking about the difference .

The Air Jordan XXX1 “Royal” inspiration  from the first once again.Borrowing from the legendary Air Jordan 1 Retro High “Royal,” which is releasing on the same day, the sneaker features a mix of game royal and black on the Flyweave and leather upper sitting on a game royal, white, and black sole.

For the materail, Air Jordan 31 used synthetic leather in the heel area – killer combo. The Flyweave offers more flexible, softer and more breathable upper in front . it doesn’t restricts your natural feet movements and gives you that lovely snug fit. I was able to move freely without any restrictions but at the same time received enough support in the heel area due to synthetic leather which adds more support and stiffness in the heel area, where you need the most.

Also, the material transition in the mid foot area does not have any stiches or additional backing layers underneath

 

Nike Kobe AD Igloo could reference towards Kobe Bryant being cold as ice during his basketball career.It is feauture an Igloo and Black color scheme. This Nike Kobe AD features a Light Mint Green upper with Black branding throughout, speckled midsole and matching rubber sole.

For the material ,  textile mesh is used along the upper.  It is difference between of Air Jordan  31. It’s lightweight, strong and durable. It’s also very supportive for a textile.But this materials also require more break-in time than one would expection. I can feel the pinch and blister the sides of my feet. Maybe I need some time .

For cushioning , Air Jordan 31 used  full-length ZOOM Air setup in the midsole.I am a fan of full-length ZOOM cushion because of ability to expand and then force your implemented energy back to myself .I was pretty happy with the performance they offered me – great impact protection (especially in the heel), solid court feel and enjoyable bouncy ride.

For cushion of KD , Moving onto the Zoom Air,but the Full-length Lunarlon foam has been micro-tuned to Kobe’s specifications to deliver plush, resilient cushioning.it feels like Phylon. Court feel is there, despite the fact that you ride a little higher than past models, but if this is where Lunarlon is headed then I’m pretty disappointed. I first tried Lunarlon while playing in the Jordan Fly Wade 2.

 

For the traction , Air Jordan 31 ‘s  traction performed almost exactly the same as on the Jordan XXX… I was really disappointed by this performance as I was expecting some decent or even great traction from this model.

For the traction of KD, Rubber outsole with added surface area for better traction,Multi-directional flex grooves in the forefoot let your foot move naturally during quick cuts and liftoff.

For the supporting , I have no complains about Air Jordan 31 . Flywire cables wrapped around my midfood nicely and secure.The internal heel counter and synthetic leather setup locked my heel and kept for the entire game, so the overall support was really solid.

For the supporting of KD , The support features are pretty standard. Although, I don’t think there is a TPU midfoot shank,It’s a strange feeling that I haven’t really experienced before, the best way I know how to describe it is that at times it felt as if it was getting sucked under my feet.

Overall ,they are a little difference , but for  me ,I like the Air Jordan  better, Premium materials, super nice snug fit, heavy padding inside and of course, responsive, low to the ground full-length ZOOM cushion. The KD is not bad , The design and sculpt of the heel is something I hope to see on future editions of the Kobe model, it‘s that good.

Air Jordan 12 Flu Game Performance Review

Posted on

In order to celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Jordan 12 in 2016 , The  Air Jordan 12 Flu Game  was returned . The last release came in 2009 which was on the limited side, but differed from the OG and first retro. This time the shoes had a special insignia by the heel that referenced the game.

There are some pictures for the game in 1997 , it is perfect on the court.

Michael Jordan during Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals was caused by some bad Salt Lake City room service apparently.

Michael Jordan wore this pair during the finals where his team, the Chicago Bulls played against the Utah Jazz. Before the start in game 5 of the series, Jordan came down with flu like symptoms. Even though he was very sick, he still went on to play and scored 38 points. The bulls would go on to win that game 90 to 88.

 

Here is the details of this shoes :

Air Jordan 12 Flu Game
Colorway: Black/Varsity Red
Release Date: May 28, 2016
Retail: $190
Product Number: 130690-002

 

The feature real Black with  Red Air Jordan 12’s are about to get the Retro treatment .It is very close to OG from 1997.

For the material , it used the  premium tumbled leather and Varsity Red accents.Actually the material of  leather are not easy to keep and the breathability is not great. It doesn’t take too long since there is practically zero ventilation , yeah ,  your body’s heat and moisture will speed up the process.

 

 

For the cushioning , Full length Zoom Air used  as usually . Again the cushioning is great . They are comfortable enough wearing even you playing  longer time . I can not feel a hurt ,just snug .

if you are looking for the responsive cushion’s sneakers , yes , it is the best one for you .

I loved the Air Jordan 12  according to  its looks but that fact that they can handle practically anything you can throw at them made me love them even more.and you can do anything what you want to do .

 

For the traction, Herringbone is featured in similar fashion to the previous Air Jordan signature – the Air Jordan XI .  It will be lockdown and improve the grip very well .

However , please make sure you plant your feet and push off from the base of the shoe, then you can do anything what you want .

 

 

 

 

For fit , it is true size , you can buy  the size that you bought before .but if you want to wear double  sock ,maybe you can choose over a half size . that is will be better .

 

 

Overall ,Midfoot and heel lockdown were great,  the cushioning. is also  perfect . I never once had an issue after they broke in. As expected with leather based sneakers.

How do you think?

Air Jordan 4 Retro White Cement Performance Review

Posted on

We had a Retro 4 as the classic basketball shoes since 1999 . While they aren’t ‘premium’ they are leaps and bounds better than the pair they dropped in 2012.

Today we are talking  about it .

 Air Jordan 4 OG ’89 White Cement will have the coveted “Nike Air” on the heel to go along with the premium remastered treatment.The grey colorway .

For the box , it is nothing special , just following the last version . there is a big nike swoosh . and the shoes details by the side .

For the cushioning , the midsoles are far too dense for me and even with an insole swap,and it’s not quite as springy as the Air Jordan 3 .especially for the older or hurt people , it is very nice and comfortable . because of there are air unit on the midsole . It is very snug even you playing longer .

For the lace system , the strap is great for lockdown the feet .

For the material , The leather upper is decent enough and durability .And the Flexibility of material is pretty amazing . no doubt that everyone will like it .

Personally , I would like the leather which  soft and snug  and the material of Air Jordan 4 will improve the life-time .

there is a nike swoosh  in the heel . 

 

For Ventilation, The shoes on both sides of the panel provides ventilation , although the tongue had a little obstacles, but still contributed to the more air flow.For tractionThe traction surface was much like the Air Jordan 3 .you can do what you want to do . the grip is great .

Overall ,I think the Air Jordan 4 would have made a very good performance shoe.

Air Jordan 6 Retro Carmine Performance Review

Posted on

The new Air Jordan 6 sneaker—Carmine is coming back . There’s no doubt that the Air Jordan VI ‘Carmine’ would be a coveted one if it ever came back in that fashion, as the sneakers have only ever had the retro treatment once before.

Today we are talking about it .

Do you remember the last version ?

Here are the picture as below :

Actually it is not big difference compare with last version ,the same coloray and material .

As Michael Jordan wore them when he won his first championship. The Jordan VI was noticed in the movie “White Men Can’t Jump”. It was also the last Air Jordan sneaker with Nike’s logo on it.

Compare with the last version ,  for the traction , it is not difference . The  traction of Air Jordan 6 Retro Carmine   are excellent too . It is performance well .However , there  is a disadvantage , because if the crystal material ,so it is not  easy to  keep to clean .If kept clean they are actually very good at keeping your foot planted on the floor no matter what you were doing.

For the last  version , the traction actually great too .

For the heel ,we can see the nike logo on there .

 

Nike Air Jordan jump men logo

 

For the material : there are a variety of material options available depending on the difference of  Nike phone…..

For  cushioning :  there was a minimal cushion underfoot. The Polyurethane is dense and the Air Units are embedded within so you won’t receive a comfortable ride but the impact is being absorbed a little.

Overall ,the size is true size , you can bought the same size .

And durability & ventilation then the Air Jordan VI may be a good option for you.
