NIKE KOBE AD MID PERFORMANCE REVIEW

If you’ve been wondering how the latest Kobe AD Mid performs, the wait is over. AnotherPair offers his thoughts in our Nike Kobe AD Mid performance review.


THE NIKE KOBE AD IS AVAILABLE NOW AT KD10SALE.COM.

The latest Kobe AD Mid uses a multi-directional engineered tread for optimal traction; it was designed to be a beast and that it was! Have you ever bit into a yellow jelly bean and examined the inside jelly part and you notice it’s translucent with a yellow tint to it and you go to touch it, and it was super sticky. That’s what I’m going to compare this traction to — a super sticky jelly bean.

Wait there’s more. What happens when you continue to play with the jelly? The yellow outer shell begins to crumble and mix into the jelly, making it less sticky! Transfer that over to basketball and what do you have? The more dirt that’s on the court, the less traction you have. However, the traction wasn’t bad by any means.

There were times when I would make a hard cut or try to push off and my foot would slip a bit before it would grip the hardwood, but the traction was still good. As far as the outdoors are concerned, don’t even think about it. You can hang that thought up. The traction will wear down before you can ball game. Don’t waste your time or money playing outside in these.

The Nike Kobe AD Mid Optimism Yellow features a Lunarlon midsole and a Zoom Air unit in the heel that’s a lot bigger than the Zoom bag used in the original Kobe A.D. (just check our Kobe AD Mid deconstructed post for proof). I want to thank god for that because lord knows them things were brutal.

It took a few games for the setup to break in, but once it did it worked well. The impact protection in the heel was excellent, and some very nice Lunarlon cushioned the rest of the foot. It felt like I was like walking in heaven. Well, I wouldn’t quite say heaven. I’d say it felt more like I was walking up to the gates to enter heaven. I’m sure heaven feels like Boost!

The Kobe AD Mid uses a felt-like material with synthetic leather overlays along the upper. I think Nike could have done better in this category. I mean geez, Nike could have at least given us some suede, but who am I to judge?

For being felt, it felt ok. It didn’t have a premium feel but felt alright. It’s lightweight — the material moved pretty well with my foot — and it’s durable. This shoe took a beating, and all you can see on it is some dirt. That’s not bad.

The one thing I can complain about is the breathability. This felt material was like a sauna. My feet came out looking like the Pacific Ocean, and my feet never sweat. It isn’t a deal breaker or anything like that, I’m just letting y’all know that if you want some ventilation you had better look else where because the Kobe AD Mid doesn’t have it.

The Kobe AD Mid fits snug. I went true to size, but it wouldn’t have hurt if I went a 1/2 size up. Wide footers, y’all definitely need to go up a 1/2 a size, and if you can try these on before purchase I highly recommend it.

Lockdown was solid. The ankle collar is padded, which creates a nice bed for the heel, and the Flywire held my foot down nicely keeping me locked in the entire time.

However, there was an issue with the lacing system being too tight and causing some discomfort. The upper laces dug into the top of my foot. The pain was so annoying I had to loosen the laces — and lockdown went out the window after that.

Support was good. The Kobe AD Mid has a broad base with a small outrigger on the lateral sides to keep the foot from rolling over. There is an external heel counter that cups the heel and holds it in place. The shank plate at the midfoot did a good job of keeping my foot stable and kept my shoe from twisting in awkward ways.

Although the materials seemed cheap, the felt and Flywire worked well together by stopping all stretch or give in the material and kept me on top of the footbed.

Just like the fit, all that went out the window as soon as I couldn’t take the annoying pain my laces had caused. Loosening the top lace affected the support as well — my foot was all over the place inside the shoe.

The Kobe AD Mid is a beautiful shoes . I see a bunch of people scooping up a pair of the Kobe AD Mids and serving up some buckets. The only real complaint I have is with the lacing system digging into my foot. Other people may not experience it, but I sure did. However, it isn’t a deal breaker — it’s just an annoyance I’d much rather be without for $150.

Best Jordans Shoes appears to have the masses on edge in regards to their Gatorade-inspired Air Jordan VI which is expected to hit retailers sometime in the near future. We've seen an almost monochromatic green pair floating around the interweb in recent weeks and the rumors of the 'Carmine'-esque pair appeared to only be a rumor until now as the 'Like Mike' Air Jordan VI has finally been revealed to the sneaker community.
The Jordan 4 For Sale takes on the color blocking of the 1991 released rendition of the highly popularized silhouette dressed in a nubuck orange base complete with white angular overlays complete with all the necessary perforations we're used to seeing on the sneaker. Black detailing adds some balance to the kicks as it can be found on the tongue, heel tab, and midsole of the sneaker. An orange satin shroud sits at the center of the sneaker complete with a green embroidered Jumpman stitched into the material, while the phrase 'If I Could Be' is embroidered on the back of the tongue of the kicks, and a white midsole and partially transparent outsole round out the kicks.
Unfortunately,Cheap Curry 4 it's looking like the green version of the sneaker is just a sample and won't be released while this particular Gatorade-inspired 'Like Mike' Air Jordan VI will be the official sneaker to see the light of day. With that being said, who's copping? Let us know in the comment section below.

Best Jordans Shoes Returns in Legion Green 98

The Swooshless Best Jordans Shoes hasn't seen much fanfare of the past few months, save for a Python Off-White (no Virgil Abloh) release a couple months back. However, as fall makes it return, so it appears does the Swooshless One.Coming in a "Legion Green" colorway, the shoe will drop with a premium suede upper and leather detailing on the tongue and back tabs. Metallic logos adorn both leather sections, and the shoe is completed by a white sole unit.
Dressing Scottie Jordan 4 For Sale shoe in the USA colorway, if we are to believe that the purple pair pays homage to his Alma Mater of University of Central Arkansas, then this shoe appears to highlight one of two things. The first is his time in the Olympics, where he won two gold medals with Dream Team I and III. The second, and perhaps least likely, is based on his time post Bulls with the Houston Rockets. This is only referenced because Don C showed off Barkley's Rockets Jersey along with his Air Force 180 in the mid colorway. This would be ironic as Barkley and Pip's relationship while in Houston wasn't the best. Also of note is the Kith logo on the tongue, and the 120 on the hang tag, maybe signifying only 120 pairs of this colorway?
This pair, Cheap Curry 4 similar to almost all the shoes that use Vapormax tech, the shoe utilizes a low top design. This particular pair however, features a mesh toebox, synthetic overlays on the upper, and an all black swoosh. Ironically enough, this shoe doesn't contain any flyknit, seeing as though the vapormax sole is so light.Unfortunately, we don't have any info on pricing or release date, but what are your thoughts on the shoe?

air jordan 7 retro pantone performance reviews

投稿者: newtruckspring

The Air Jordan Pantone series debuted in 2010. Is it too little too late for the shoe to succeed at retail?

While I still enjoy the Air jordan 7  Pantone series, a lot of the newer generation that seem to be “into” sneakers likely couldn’t care less about this release. Maybe if it were an Air Jordan 3 or 4, but even those haven’t sold well — even in rare PE edition releases such as the Motorsports and those including the Nike Air branding. With Yeezy and Boost sneakers being all the rage, the Air Jordan 7 ‘Pantone’ will likely be overlooked. However, if you end up grabbing a pair then our detailed look and review of the shoes should help you know what you’re about to receive.

Traction – The overall surface area is very good no matter your position or movements. Clean floors are ideal of course but even semi-dusty courts were no match for the AJ7. It wasn’t until I played on a debris (mostly dust) filled court that traction became an issue which was remedied by consistently wiping the bottom. Certain sections of the rubber are smooth and fairly sticky when new so this will accumulate dust even on the cleanest of courts so some wiping will be needed.

For what is offered, the Air Jordan VII Pantone  offers some very nice traction that can keep you planted and stable throughout gameplay.

Cushion – The most notable difference between the Air Jordan 7 Pantone  and the previous models would be the overall cushion. From what I’ve been told, the original and first round retro releases featured an embedded full length Air unit and these newer retro models have them placed directly under foot. Major change in cushion from all of the previous models and the midsole itself is much more forgiving as well. Out of all the Air Jordan’s from 1-9 I’d say the 7 offers the most out of cushion and comfort

Material – Depending on the colorway the materials will be different. Each material option offers different levels of support so if you wish to maximize support then go with the leather versions. Nubuck versions will offer you less support but offer greater range of motion and mobility. Overall the materials held up nicely, most of the visible damage to the shoe is on the painted sections of the midsole so the leather is definitely a reliable option.

Fit – These fit a little strange for me… an 8.5 fits securely along the midfoot yet they are to short length wise while a sz 9 (which is what I wore) is fine length wise but could have had a slightly more secure midfoot fit. Once fully laced they aren’t too bad and the midfoot is held down nicely while the collar draws your heel back into the basketball shoes keeping the heel and ankle secure. The best fitting Air Jordan right now comes down to the AJ4 & 7, in my opinion.

Ventilation – Not quite as good as the AJ6 but better than anything before that. I would have liked to have had the perforations found along the tongue to have been completely open from the inside out but everything else wasn’t horrible. These are thicker (material wise) than the AJ6 so what you lose in ventilation you gain in supportive materials.

Support – The molded arch does its job while the overall fit and materials will take care of the rest for you. As noted above, the material choice you make will improve the overall support in general. I did wear the Bordeaux colorway during my playing time in the Air Jordan 6 Pantone and the materials along the upper just didn’t give me enough support when putting a lot of torque on the shoe so I ended up switching back to the Olympic version… it was night and day with the amount of support the materials offer between the two.

Overall – The Air Jordan 7 Pantone  =is possibly the best early Air Jordan for on-court purposes. They are a very well rounded shoe in general when compared to the previous models as they offer the best cushion, solid traction, reliable materials with a pretty solid fit, above average ventilation and still offer plenty of support. http://www.kd10sale.com


The Drop Jordan: Release Date 97

If you didn't grow up with the Drop Jordan hoop attached to the back of any door in the house and practice your thru-the-leg slam dunk, you've lived an unfulfilled childhood. Nike Basketball is attempting to bring back that sense of nostalgia on a grade school exclusive of the Nike Air Foamposite Pro, that was originally a colorway on the notorious Nike KD IV. With no further ado, check out these detailed images of the Nike Little Posite Pro 'Nerf' above.
The kicks feature a nearly indestructible 'KD 10 For Sale', 'Matte Silver', and 'Black' striped ribber Foamposite shell complete with 'Total Crimson' accents that hit the sneaker's Nike branding, tongue and heel tabs, as well as the outsole of the kicks. Leather lines the shoelaces eyelets of the kicks while 'Matte Silver' mesh lines the inside of the sneaker, head turning 'Green Strike' accents hit the tongue, insole, and outsole of the kicks, while a speckled carbon fiber shank at the midfoot of the kicks closes out the sneaker.
This particular aesthetic has always been pretty popular with Nike models. Considering the Cheap Air Vapormax's fairly boot-like build, it seems especially appropriate. A premium suede upper takes on a combo of Sail and Harvest. A White midsole and translucent outsole help round things off with some contrast.


The Underrated Genius of the Best Jordans 97

You hear Best Jordans Shoes from business leaders all the time. From the far reaches of nearly every motivational TED Talk to attempts at intimate advice of Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and the like, it’s an almost loud echo. Some of us have heard it as more of a rallying cry for those that want to succeed. For more of us, it’s a bit tiring to hear it over and over - regardless of how true it may be: allow yourself to fail.
If you’re tuning out because you’ve misplaced your eyes as they’ve rolled right on out of your head, I understand. But, if you can, bear with me for a sec here. That horribly repetitive piece of advice, true as it may be in general, seems to ring subtly with sneakers as well. Particularly, performance basketball shoes. Reaching for certain heights that may not be necessarily safe can lead to a number of flops. But, it can also result in a few home run sell out hits. Nike’s attempts at the Kobe 4, the first high-level low top basketball sneaker is a good example of risk leading almost directly to reward. Putting Boost tech, a running cushion, in a hoops shoe is the entire reason why adidas is even relevant in that category. But, as always, there are issues.
Both of the Jordan 4 For Sale weren’t really risks. In fact, they were more like tightly controlled experiments, the sort you don’t really finish without having an over-involved parent over your shoulder. Boost was always going to be a successful decision for adidas in terms of basketball because the original premise fit the on-court purpose. As for the Kobe 4, the shoe’s namesake alone was enough of a massive name at the time to make the low-cut “experiment” seem like no chance was taken at all.
One shoe, the Hyperdunk, did take chances. It may not occur to a lot of us, even those of us who love the Hypers, but Nike took some subtle chances with this shoe. The original version, dropped back in 2008, was a stellar addition to the hoop sneaker scene. Featherweight and with impressive support features, the Hyperdunk was a tone that the rest of industry was trying mightily to strike. So, of course, the following years saw releases that kept the shoe as close to its original form as possible. From 2009-2011, there were very minimal changes made to the Hyperdunk, resulting in some impressive consistency.
But, then came flops like the Cheap Curry 4. As reaches go, this was a hyperextension. Perhaps looking to get ahead of the athleisure curve, this model looked spacey and contrived while essentially shredding its performance profile. On more than one count, it failed, miserably. But, there was an advantage to this. It made 2016 serve as a reminder of how brilliant this sneaker could really be. Featuring advanced Zoom all along the midsole and a Flyknit edition, it was a welcome flashback to the design philosophy that made so many fall in love with the Hypers.
Now, we have the 2017 edition. This sneaker’s features represent a piece of brilliance in the form of timing and full-circle narrative from Nike. After debuting in 2008, the Hyperdunk went through a phase of “eh, ok, I guess” for a few years, cataclysmically lost touch and fell off after that, climbed back up in quality, and is now taking on a new cushioning tech in perhaps its most advanced form.


Air Jordan 1 Retro High Performance Review

投稿者: newtruckspring

タグ: タグなし 

newtruckspring

The Air Jordan Project has started out nicely so far, to my surprise, and the Air Jordan I is 100% playable 27 years after their release.

Hit the jump for more…

Traction – As you already know from the Performance Teasers, the Air Jordan 1 has great traction. I still won’t give it a full 10 out of 10 but a solid 9.5 will do.

From a front to back standpoint, the traction is incredible. Medial and lateral movements are just as impressive due to the multidirectional circles along with the soft and flexible rubber. This traction surface worked very well on clean indoor courts as well as dusty indoor courts and would probably work well outdoors as well.

Cushion – Again, this is something I went over previously and it’s pretty much a no brainer… cushion wasn’t great. In the video review I show an insole that could help but you can use any insole you feel would work best for you and it would be a huge improvement.

Material – Full leather uppers and a rubber midsole and outsole add some sturdiness as well as weight. They aren’t heavy per say but it is something you do notice while transitioning. The main thing is that the type of leather used allows for added strength and durability which can be a nice feature to have.

Fit – The heel offered excellent lockdown as did the midfoot. With more time spent on-court you will start to notice the fit loosening up due to the moisture and heat buildup so with that I did have to readjust the lacing after every game or so.

Ventilation – Not much of any but there are perforations featured on the toe as well as a nylon tongue for some ventilation, even if just a little.

Support – None… you can purchase an insole with arch support if needed but other than that they are pretty much a flat based sneaker.

Overall – These were playable, which is the main thing. If you wanted the look or styling of an Air Jordan I with modern tech you can either swap the insoles out for cushion or opt to purchase the Air Jordan 1 royal for sale which offers many upgrades in every category, most notably the cushion with its Phylon midsole and full length bottom loaded Zoom Air.

Now… onto the Air Jordan II!

Traction – 9.5/10
Cushion – 6/10 (there is an Air unit in the heel so that deserves at least a 1)
Material – 7/10
Fit – 7.5/10
Ventilation – 6/10
Support – 8/10

Overall – 8/10


Buty Jordan Store Opens in China 96

The word Buty Jordan Sklep falls comically short sometimes. In the case of Chinese knock off brands, it doesn't seem like there's a word that quite measures up to what you see. In the latest example of this winner-fake-all environment, knock-off Yeezy stores have already started opening up.
The Buty Jordan Damskie pictures above are of a location in Wenzhou. It's amazing that the opening of actual Yeezy locations is only in the late planning stages at the moment. Yet, here we are, with all sorts of fake shoes in the wildest unreleased colorways, available for all to buy at their own risk. What's more, it's actually located next to a New Balance knock off that at the very least feigned an effort at changing names.
Barato Air Max Venta has been dropping dope visuals of their product alongside some of the hottest influencers in the game in which they've decided to do so for Ferg to in celebration of the latest adidas Skateboarding x Trap Lord Collection which featured Ferg standing atop a pile of adidas packaging and books in what appears to be an abandoned hospital facility. The ad also reveals that we'll be seeing more and possibly have the opportunity to get our hands on the collaborative project as soon as September 1st.


The Best Jordans High Returns in "Desert Ochre" 96

Just when you think Best Jordans Shoes would be done pumping out new colorways of the Nike Air More Uptempo, you were wrong. Nike is prepared to release a pair that honors what most people would consider Scottie Pippen's biggest rival as a member of the Chicago Bulls. This shoe features a white leather upper with royal blue and orange accents including the "AIR" branding on the side panel of the shoe. This shoe also honors either the Knicks legendary Center Patrick Ewing or Scottie Pippen or both with an embroidered "33" on the heel in orange. The shoe is finished off with white laces and an orange visible air unit.
While the Jordan 4 For Sale was originally slated for a Sept. 1 release date on 43einhalb, because it was taken down, that may be in question now. However it appears as though we will have more than one release in this collection. Stick with Sneakerwatch for more news on this and other releases.The "Desert Ochre" Colorway released earlier this year as a Women's only release and quickly sold out. With this pair, the shoe utilizes the same tannish tumbled leather upper, but also features a bright orange for the ballistic mesh part of the upper. This pair doesn't' appear to have the Duffle Bag either. 
Today we have the first look at yet another Heiress Cheap Curry 4 releasing this year but in a camouflage colorway. The Retro of choice by way of the Air Jordan 5. It features a premium camo upper with gold accents seen along the stitching and midsole. The shoe could possibly be one of an entire collection, similar to how images of the last collection unveiled intermittently. This colorway of the Air Jordan 5 is expected to hit retailers September 16th, giving Jordan Brand plenty of time to unravel more Retros for a possible second "Heiress" pack. The retail price for the Air Jordan 5 PRM Heiress Camo is set at $160.
