Under Armour Curry 3 performance review

Le 15 novembre 2017, 10:41 dans Humeurs 0

Finally, my Under Armour Curry 3 performance review. Consistency is key…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

3.Air Jordan 11 Jeter inspired by Derek Jeter

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

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

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

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

Nike PG 1 Reviews

That means that by the time the Nike PG2 drops next year it may be launching in purple and yellow. But before we get ahead of ourselves though, it’s time find out if the first model in the series carries on the tradition of fantastic affordable signature models from Nike.

Hover over the dots for a breakdown of how the Nike PG1 performs on-court.

Traction – The Nike PG 1 features an interesting pattern that will serve you well on-court. This particular version of the shoe features translucent rubber, and while it’s better than what Nike Basketball has put out in the past, it still isn’t the best option. Why does Nike insist on using clear rubber? It’s mostly to showcase the technology within the shoe. However, upcoming colorways of the PG1 feature solid rubber — what I’d recommend over the translucent options — while highlighting the cushion within the midsole by changing the color of the rubber in that particular section. I believe that is the best route and I’m surprised Nike hasn’t done it sooner with so many complaints about the lack of tackiness its translucent rubber offers.

The good news is that the pattern here really helps the rubber compound out and dust doesn’t stick to the pattern much. A quick wipe every so often will do the outsole good, and I’m almost positive that the solid rubber options will far exceed this version on-court.

Cushion – Forefoot bottom loaded Zoom Air is what is offered in the PG1. This setup is for those that want a more responsive ride for greater reaction speed. You won’t sink into the cushion and you won’t feel it bounce back as you would if it were directly underfoot, but it gets the job done for the most part. At the heel it’s just Phylon so nothing special there. Some may feel the setup is a bit lackluster if they’re expecting an abundant amount of cushion, but if you are more into court feel then this will prove to be a worthy setup.

Materials – This is one of the best material options we’ve had from Nike Basketball Shoes in a long time. It offers a little bit of everything, but not in a way that would make the shoe feel awkward or cluttered with tons of gimmicky materials.

The forefoot is free feeling with the open mesh and it’s protected by a layer of fuse in the high wear areas. This is great for players that stay on their toes and do not enjoy breaking in shoes. Meanwhile, the rear panel, on this colorway, is made of nubuck and it feels like the good ‘ol days when nubucks and leathers were being used to construct a sneaker. The overall build feels good, looks good, and plays well. Can’t really ask for much more than that. Materials and fit on the Nike PG 1 are my favorite aspects of the sneaker. Speaking of fit…

Fit – The PG 1 fits true to size. However, they are very snug — just the way I like it. The overall fit reminds me a bit of the Nike Kryie 3 White Green — one of the best fitting shoes I’ve ever worn — especially at the forefoot. And that’s before I even adjusted the strap. If you’re a wide footer then you may want to go up 1/2 size as the one-piece construction doesn’t offer much stretch once they’re on your foot.
The PG1 isn’t perfect, but Nike deserves any success that comes with Paul George’s first signature model because the shoe is that good. It’s a great aesthetic design, is releasing in attractive colorways, and—most importantly—performs on a level that far exceeds its relatively low price tag. For $110, it’s hard to go wrong. Its cushioning and stability are top-notch, making it my favorite Nike of the season at any price.
