Air Jordan 10(X) Retro Performance Review

Air Jordan 10(X) Retro Performance Review

Traction – The overall traction has been very solid. From a visual perspective you would already assume that the traction would be more than capable of keeping up with your movements from a front to back standpoint. What is clear after you begin to trust the surface is that your jab steps, jump stops along with your crosses, quick cuts and abrupt stops are great as well. No matter the court condition, the Air Jordan 10 can keep up with the best of them.

Cushion – We finally have something a bit more ‘modern’ with the Phylon midsole but even then its not as soft as some of the newer renditions of the foam nor is it as responsive as the newer foams that have been introduced to us over the last few years. However, the cushion is more than capable and 100% ready to take care of you during games. While you wont receive that step-in comfort you may find in something with an Ortholite insole – an easy fix if you wanted to swap insoles – but the full length Air unit along with the Phylon midsole do their job and they do it very well. Heel to toe transition is extremely smooth and you don’t feel high off the ground so court feel isn’t compromised.

Material – I personally love everything about the materials… it brings me back to when you got what you paid for. I’m not saying that you are getting ripped off today by purchasing synthetic based sneakers – since they will last longer – but there is just something about wearing a handcrafted sneaker made with organic materials that makes you feel as if you just laced up a luxury item onto your feet.

Fit – The fit is fantastic and one of the highlights of the Jordan release date 2018 . When you have leather based shoes, you typically have a break-in period to adjust to. That wasn’t really the case as the break-in time for these are easy and painless. I was expecting for the overall shoe to lose its shape after some time – a typical issue with leather sneakers – but that never happened. Those bungee bands place down the tongue keeps the fit snug and secure from beginning to end… a really nice feature and its also something I really enjoyed on the Air Penny III.

Ventilation – The tongue is mesh but other than that there really isn’t any ventilation. This will bring their overall score down but that should only really effect your decision to wear these on-court if that particular attribute is a high priority for your needs.

Support – The support is minimal but fairly effective. While the leather overlays didn’t provide much of any support, the midsole did which made up for it. There is a molded arch which is nice for arch support but this is the first time within the Air Jordan Project where I felt my arch over flexing. It didn’t happen often and when it happened it was only with my right foot but it does make you appreciate the shank plate no matter what material its made of.

Overall – The Air Jordan 10 is a great on-court option. Its no surprise why you still see them on basketball courts today… they are just that good of a shoe. They have almost everything a hooper would need.

Despite claims from consumers claiming the ‘quality’ is lacking, the Air Jordan Retro has been one of the best releases this year in terms of materials and craftsmanship. For the few who may have bought a pair to wear with their Nike Elite socks on-court and not on the sidewalk… they’re on-court ready fresh out the box in the newjordans2018.com .

Better Air Jordan 11 – “Concord” or “Bred”

Better Air Jordan 11 – “Concord” or “Bred”

With the Air Jordan 11 Retro Concord rumored to release during the 2018 holiday season, we decided to take a look back at two of Jordan Brand’s most iconic releases.

Some consider the Air Jordan 11 Concord 2018 for sale to be the most popular basketball shoe of all time. Michael Jordan wore them during his path to a fourth NBA Championship with the Chicago Bulls.

A shoe that every collector should have is the “Bred” Air Jordan 11. Debuted during the 1996 NBA Playoffs that would route MJ to another championship and NBA Finals MVP. One of the best features to this release was its Red translucent outsole.

the Air Jordan 11 'Bred'. Here is a fresh new look at the Holiday release that leaves nothing behind from their OG drop. The Black mesh compliments the patent leather with a White midsole that separates its self from the Red soles.

Jordan Brand will be returning another all-time favorite, the Air Jordan 11 Concord for the holiday 2018 season. Much like the “Space Jam” release, you can expect a remastered version with a higher-cut patent leather build.

No word on if kd 10 release will include “45” or “23” on the heels. But all other details like a White mesh upper, Black patent leather and Dark Concord accents will be the same. The shoe will resemble the original pair from 1995.

Both are one of the most celebrated sneakers of all time. But if you could only pick one, which do you guys think was the better release? Cast your vote below on newjordans2018.com .

New Style Kobe Venomenon 6 Performance Reviews

Le 6 octobre 2017, 10:58 dans Humeurs 0

The Kobe Venomenon series has been pretty consistent as a performance shoe, especially being an Asia-only release model (with the exception of last year’s model). This year, we aren’t sure whether the Kobe Venomenon 6 will see a Stateside release but we’re keeping our fingers crossed because of what you’re about to experience…

Traction – Very OG-esque. OG-esque? If you’ve owned the Nike Zoom Kobe 6 you’ll realize that the Nike Zoom Kobe Venomenon 6 draws from it. The core question is, does it work well? You bet your happy feet it does!

No matter the aggressive movements I made or the hard cuts I initiated, the shoe’s traction really bit the ground. Was it outstanding? Only if you played on super-clean courts (of course). The solid rubber multi-directional gridded pattern offered bite but didn’t hesitate to pick up the dust on dirty floors either, so an occasional wipe is necessary.

The translucent forefoot rubber and the visible heel Zoom Air window don’t hurt the traction. Most Asia-only releases come with Nike’s XDR outsole, but this one just used the regular rubber compound. The Kobe Venomenon 6 is more of an indoor shoe, so for those looking to play outdoors in these know that the outsole will most likely wear quickly.

 

Cushion – There’s a bottom-loaded forefoot Zoom Air and a top-loaded rectangular heel Zoom Air unit that is 13mm thick. While I prefer both top-loaded, the cushioning setup worked well. I would honestly say it’s an upgrade over last year’s model, especially now that you can actually feel the Zoom Air and responsiveness.

The Venomenon series, particularly this model, is definitely not something to overlook. While the Zoom units seem similar to those used in the new jordans 2018 (which was no slouch), we don’t have much to complain about because everything included here is effective.

Materials – The Kobe Venomenon 6 uses an entirely mesh upper with fuse overlays in high wear areas. The shoe pretty much has the same exact materials as the Nike Zoom LeBron Ambassador 9. That isn’t to say that’s bad because everything used on the Kobe Venomenon 6 works well in unison.

Molded rubber from midfoot to heel adds stability and there is an internal heel counter that is overlaid with the Kobe ‘SHEATH’ design. For the price point, you’re getting an above average shoe compared to many of those on market today.

Fit – This is one of the best aspects of the Kobe Venomenon 6. Even on a wide-footer like myself, the shoe fit like a glove. I’d stay true to size, regardless of having a wide foot or narrow one.

The fused wrap around the lacing loops helps with durability so you can lace tight while the heel counter keeps you contained in the shoe without hindrance. The question is, why can’t we get this type of fit on all other models?

Support – The support comes directly from the containment, cushion, and traction — all of which worked equally well. I recommend lacing the shoe tight, otherwise there might be some heel slippage.

The Kobe Venomenon 6 feels like an extension of your foot; it offers great flex while also being very lightweight. The impact protection from the heel and forefoot Zoom was adequate for someone of my size and traction sufficed as long as you wipe a few times. Overall, it’s a delightful shoe that offers ample support in all aspects.

Overall – The Nike Zoom Kobe Venomenon 6 is just plain ol’ fashion fun to play in. There is no story-telling necessary for the shoe itself, as long as you have that #MambaMentality — it’s all about doing work on the court. Everything we expect on a Nike basketball shoe is featured here.

If you can get your hands on a pair, and need a no-frills serious ball shoe on a budget, the Kobe Venomenon 6 has the answers to your on-court needs.

Why this model hasn’t been brought to the States (like the LeBron Ambassador line) has my mind slightly boggled. Make it happen, Swoosh, because you have a winner.  newjordans2018.com
