Nike React Infinity Run Performance Review

70% of the runners suffer from running injuries, not mention to the professional runners, the injuries can even prevent them to keep running. So NIKE aimed at reducing the running injuries.

Finally, NIKE released the new running shoes Nike React Infinity Run. What about the actual performance of Nike React Infinity Run? Let’s have a look at it today.

Three major improvements:

For sportsman, the sporting injuries is a hard hit. A runner without the sports injuries is Nike’s greatest dream.

One way to control gait is to control foot pronation. Long-term overpronation or underpronation may cause running obstacles and harm the human health.

NIKE improve the cushion performance to reduce the impact injury. It develops React foam, widen insole and ‘geometry rocker’ design.

  1. React foam

Nike React Infinity Run uses full-length React foam insole technology to increase buffer. It has excellent compliance, and it’s also very stable. The Nike React technology satisfy the runners’ request-Light, Soft, Elastic and Durable.

Nike Epic React Flyknit

Normally the foam can’t have both softness and durability. But NIKE React is different.  It mixes the TPE and EVA material, so it can keep the steadiness and softness.

React form are used in basketball shoes, running shoes, golf shoes and training sneakers.

  1. Stability

It increases the insole for better cushioning. Comparing with NIKE Epic React Flyknit 2,Infinity Run adds extra 24% React foam and increases the insole to suitable width to bear more foam support and increase the stability.

As the insole is widen and thickened, the overall performance of the running shoes is improved. So it also increases the weight.

The forefoot sole of Nike React Infinity Run (right one) is wider than Nike Epic React Flyknit (left one).

The outsole which connects with ground is rubber and it has hollow-out design, which improves the durability and reduces the weight.

It’s quite light when running and it’s also stable.

  1. Rocker Geometry

Nike React Infinity Run uses the similar outsole design as Zoom Vaporfly 4%. The insole is Rocker Geometry type.

It’s very stable when running. It can reduce the running injuries.

NIKE cooperated with BCSMRF to conduct a test, 226 runners wore Nike React Infinity Run and Nike Structure 22 shoes for a 12-week training program.

The result shows that the runners wearing Nike React Infinity Run were 52% less likely to be injured than runners wearing Nike Structure 22 running shoes. Meanwhile, runners wearing the NIKE React Infinity Run felt less pain in their knees and feet.

The vamp of NIKE React Infinity Run uses new Flyknit Loft knitted way. It has different knitting strength in different part of foot. The shoe tongue is integrated type, it’s easy to put on and take off. And it uses engineering fiber, which is lighter and has higher strength. It has better durability and friction, and it also improves the air permeability.

The air permeability is good. My feet haven’t felt hot when running.

We tested is women model. The main colorway is white and the grey line draws the outline of Nike Swoosh logo, it also decorates with coral on the shoe heel. The insole is white and light blue.

The TPU stabilizing plate is extending from shoe heel to the middle part and outboard, it improves the stability when running.

Nike React Infinity Run is not only suitable for professional athlete, but also a good choice for the running enthusiast for jogging and long-distance running training. A nice pair of running shoes will improve your sport performance and reduce the risk of injury.

Air Jordan 12 Performance Review

Today, we want to share the performance review of Air Jordan 12 FIBA.

  1. Cushion Performance (8-9.5 scores)

The cushion performance is excellent. But the insole foam is not soft enough, it’s a little stiff. But the advantage is the good anti-torsion performance, it’s not easy to deform. If your weight is not too light, the cushion performance of forefoot is good. The cushion performance of rear sole is also enough for me. My weight is 74kg.

  1. Anti-torsion Performance (9.3-10 scores)

The insole is a little stiff, and it has a piece of thick carbon plate, with the special design on arch, the anti-torsion performance is good.

  1. Supporting Performance (8.5-9.5 scores)

It has upturning design on the sole. With the leather material, the supporting performance is good. But the skid resistance of shoe-pad is bad, so it will presses the toes when urgently stop.

  1. Anti-rollover Performance (8-8.9 scores)
    The anti-rollover performance of Air Jordan 12 is excellent. Although is doesn’t have obvious anti-torsion design, but the strength is good, it doesn’t have big deformation when turning, it reduces the risk of rollover. The good anti-rollover performance is due to below reasons: the outside of insole has upturning design; the insole material is stiff; it has carbon plate to improve the anti-torsion performance; The vamp is thick; It’s high type design. Although the anti-rollover performance is not excellent, but it’s already enough for me.
  2. Fitness (7.5 scores)

It’s a little empty for me. It needs to fasten the shoelaces tightly. But the material is leather and it doesn’t have inner sleeve, so it don’t have the good fitness as ZOOM GP.

  1. The air permeability is bad.
  2. Traction and Abrasive Resistance (8.5-9.2 scores)

The rubber of outsole is stiff. The pattern is herringbone, so the traction performance is excellent. But if the ground is wet, we don’t suggest you to play basketball. The durability is good. I haven’t found big abrasion after playing several basketball games.

Overall:

The advantages of Air Jordan 12 is as below:

  1. Excellent cushion performance
  2. Excellent anti-torsion performance
  3. Excellent colorway and appearance
  4. Good cost performance
  5. Excellent supporting performance and anti-torsion performance

Disadvantages:
1. The slip resistance of shoe-pad is not good.

2. Fitness is not good, the shoe can’t fit the foot very well.

We suggest you to change to thick shoe-pad to improve the slip resistance and fitness.

3. Bad air permeability. The feet are stuffy if wearing the shoes in Summer.

Adidas Harden Vol. 4 Performance Review

Time flies, now the Harden series comes to VOL.4. This time Harden Vol. 4 has new design and new technology.  It’s the first pair of Harden series shoes which don’t use the BOOST insole. And the price is reduced.

Today, let’s have a look at Adidas Harden Vol. 4 Pink Lemonade. We’ll also compare it with Harden Vol. 3.

Many people think that Adidas Harden Vol. 4 doesn’t look like a pair of basketball shoes, but likes a pair of fashion shoes. The streetwear designer Patrick also participate in the design of Harden Vol. 4.

Harden Vol. 4 is still low type model which has good flexibility.

The elastic cord design is hidden on the middle of vamp. It’s very useful.

The chamois leather on the shoe head is double layer. The shoe tree is normal size, with the elastic cord, the foot won’t be easy to slide in the shoes.

The stabilizing plate from shoe heel to insole is useful for improving the flexibility and stabilization, so the feedback will be faster.

The separated outsole design improves the turning feedback. Comparing with Harden Vol. 3, the advantage is more obvious.

As the first pair of Harden series shoes without Boost insole, the biggest advantage of LightStrike material is lighter and faster feedback. Maybe it relates with the shape, thickness and design of insole, but the reactiveness is great.

The stabilizing plate from shoe heel to insole is also the first pair of Harden series shoes which uses stabilizing plate to connect with insole. Some of Kobe and T-mac shoes also have such design before, the stability is great.

The fixed plate of shoelaces holes also improve the fixation of ankle part and the stability of vamp. It can fix the ankle and also can be adjusted.

The elastic cord is also added with some stitches to increase the effect of stabilization.

The Harden logo is on the shoe heel. Except the Adidas logo on shoe tongue, it doesn’t have other Adidas logo on the vamp.

The outsole is carved with password. There is a groove on the sole. The traction performance of Harden Vol. 4 on the indoor court is better than outdoor court. The groove differentiates the forefoot sole, it improves the flexibility.

The half-socks design shoe tongue can fix the shoe tongue. And the material has good air permeability.

The Lightstrike insole is lighter than Boost. It’s very flexible when turning.  It should be the biggest difference comparing with Harden Vol.3. The starting speed is fast. But the traction performance of Harden Vol. 4 is not good on outdoor court. But it’s excellent on clean indoor court.

The advantage of Harden Vol. 4 is excellent flexibility.

Lightstrike is light, it has fast feedback and good cushion performance. The cushion performance of Lightstrike is worse than Boost. But the light weight and feedback is better.

And the fixation of shoe heel is also good, the shoe heel won’t be easy to loosen.

Harden Vol. 4 VS Harden Vol. 3:

Harden Vol. 4: the advantage is light weight, fast response and good stability, but the traction performance on outdoor court and wear-resistance will be a problem

Harden Vol. 3: excellent cushion performance

Closed Look and Unboxing: ASICS GELHOOP V11

Hi, guys, before starting, I want to ask you a question: who is your torchbearer of basketball? Your friend? Your elder? some basketball stars? Or… the carton ‘Slamdunk’?

I think most of guys like to play basketball after watching ‘Slamdunk’.

So what’s the relation of Slamdunk to ASICS Gelhoop V11?

Today, let’s have a closed look at ASICS Gelhoop V11.

Size: US8=EUR41.5

Unit Weight: 320g

Size: Normal

ASICS Gelhoop V11 is the most popular and classic one on the 3 models of ASICS. And I also expected it.

In ‘Slamdunk’, you maybe familiar with the AJ that Rukawa Kaede and Sakuragi Hanamichi wore. But the ASICS basketball shoes that Mitsui wore is also classic.

After getting ASICS Gelhoop V11, it looks like a pair of shoes from the comics.

The shoebox doesn’t look like basketball shoes’ shoebox, but like for casual shoes. It doesn’t have extra design, except the big blue logo on the navy-blue shoebox.

We have two colorways now, one is white with red, and another one is black with gold. But I prefer to the white with red one.

The first feeling when holding ASICS Gelhoop V11 is light. The unit weight of size US8 is only 320g. If you like light weight shoes, it will get your attention.

Although it’s light, but it doesn’t means that it doesn’t have good configuration. We can see many details.

The shoe head is a piece of leather. It looks like the leather of ZOOM Kobe 4’s forefoot. And it also has a big piece of thermoplastic stiff design on the lateral half-sole.

Most of vamp is made of mesh fabric. If you look it clearly, there are several layers of material that are overlay. The inner material is good, so the air permeability and protection performance are qualified.

ASICS Gelhoop V11 uses half-sole inner sleeve design. The shoe tongue is thick and soft. And it also has ventilated design on the shoe tongue.

The brightest part of the vamp is the red logo design. The stiff material also has some supporting performance to the vamp.

There is a red stiff plastic on the shoe heel which is embossed with GELHOOP. And the semi-rounding design also has the supporting performance.

The built-in counter is thick and stiff. The height is high. And it also has a white surrounding TPU on the outside. It’s two-double reinforcement.

I’m not familiar with the Asics technology. I check it on the official website. ASICS Gelhoop V11 use GEL cushion, Flytefoam insole and Spevafoam cushion. The Flytefoam insole should be the shoe-pad. As it’s written the words Flytefoam. The Spevafoam cushion should be the blue part under shoe-pad.

And we can see that the sole has the ventilated design. And the ventilated holes are nonopaque.

The grain of outsole still uses most of the Asics basketball shoes’ design. The grain is several discs and line interlaced rubber outsole. I expected its traction performance.

We can also see the stiff supporting design on the midsole. It has good rigidity. The arch part won’t deform when bending it.

There is also a round anti-rollover design on the outside of forefoot. But it’s not big.

From ASICS Gelhoop V11, we can see the consistent characteristic of Asics series, that is, stable. It doesn’t mean that the shoes is stable, but the performance is stable. We will also introduce Asics Gelburst and Nova Glide soon. See you next time.

Jordan Legacy 312,Which Shoes Will Be Don C Like Best ?

 

The Jordan Legacy 312 has a new color of shoes, with Michael Jordan winning the Rookie of the Year, And  Jordan Legacy 312 “Rookie Of The Year” color scheme inspired by the brown shirt worn at the time of the award is now available. The shoes are mainly white, brown and black, and are decorated with red accents in the details. Not only is it highly recognizable, but it is also very suitable for this season.

 

Originally introduced in conjunction with Don C of Just Don fame, the 312 usually calls upon classic Nike releases forcolorway/material inspiration — but now it’s dropped in a colorway seemingly inspired by the upcoming “Rookie Of The Year” AJ1s.

 

The principal of Just Don, whose name is Don Crawley, grew up in Chicago. I  have already thought of  “flying man” Jordan and his Chicago Bulls. That’s right, who will not love the Bulls? This naturally includes Don C, and this sentiment is also in the process of connecting Don C with Michael Jordan, laying the foundation for the relationship between the two sides. Whether it’s growing up in Chicago or playing for Chicago, Chicago’s area code is this “312”, so the shoes also use this set of numbers.

 

 

From the appearance of the shoes, it mainly pays tribute to three shoes, namely Air Jordan 3, Air Jordan 1 and Nike Air Alpha Force Low.

 

 

The Air Jordan 3 is Michael Jordan’s third signature basketball shoe which released in 1988 in four colorways of white, black, red, and blue. It was the first Air Jordan to feature visible Air, elephant print, and the Jumpman logo.The elements of Air Jordan 3 occupy a lot of space in the shoes, which is also related to Don C’s personal preferences and cognition, but this is nothing wrong. After all, Air Jordan 3 is a pair of shoes that have changed the fate of today’s Air Jordan series. The shoe was Tinker Hatfield’s first design for MJ and it remains as one of the most sought after basketball sneakers to date. The original “Black/Cement” colorway releases in celebration of the shoe’s 30th Anniversary in February 2018

 

 

For Don C, the meaning of this pair of shoes is the cornerstone of the entire Jordan Brand today, so the explosion elements in the midsole, heel and side of the shoe are derived from this.

 

One of the most beloved Air Jordan 1 colorways ever, the “Chicago” AJ1s have won the hearts of sneakerheads the world over with their simple and clean construction and rich back story. Also other styles  also have been popular in near future.Air Jordan 1 is an eternal existence for the majority of sneaker lovers. It is an immortal classic and the beginning of the whole series. Its appearance has not only promoted the development of basketball shoes, but also spread to among the more sports such as BMX and skateboards, it is also the representative of the sneaker culture and the trend culture, so it is still popular till now.Since last releasing in 2015, they’ve skyrocketed in value — and prestige — and now they’re set to return later this year, in an alternate iteration complete with many new embellishments. A translucent icy blue sole replaces the standard red version, and the upper’s red leather features what appears to be a reptile-style print.

 

On January 3, 1988, Jordan wore the shoes and scored 28 points. And in this point of design, Don C considers that it is not desirable to follow the onventional shoes, but to break the routine and bring something different.

 

Jordan Brand has brought a lot of combination shoes, but so far, apart from Jordan Spiz’ike, there are not many styles that are favored by everyone, so the shoes also added a tribute theme in color matching.

 

The Jordan Legacy 312 “Nike Pack” series is also a great effort in color theme.The Fluorescent green version, tribute to the Nike Air Command Force OG. These shoes have also left a classic color in the history of Nike. It is an outstanding representative of the height of the upper to enhance the protection, because it has an extraordinary height of the upper, at the same time, the upper is also equipped with a pump design called Air Pump, which is better by inflation. Ankle fit and comfort.

 

 

This pair of shoes is endorsed by David Robinson, the nickname of the famous player in history. One of the most classic or familiar first-year color schemes is this fluorescent green color. So, when you see the Jordan Legacy 312, which also has a towering upper, you will feel the shadow of some Nike Air Command Force OG

 

 

Brown  color  was the loved by a lot of people in this season, and the brown Jordan Legacy 312 was  tribute to the Nike Trainer 3. This series also has a great spokesperson, Bo Jackson, who can play for both NFL and MLB professional leagues and achieve extraordinary achievements. The Nike Air Trainer has been most popular .

 

 

 

Tech Challenge 2’s Hot Lava color scheme. The Air Tech Challenge 2 is a pair of tennis shoes, endorsed by the most famous tennis player Andre Agassi, which is accompanied by Agassi on the tennis court.

The use of this color scheme by the jordan Legacy 312 has become one of the most popular color combinations in this series, showing the charm of color.

“Attention” is probably a temperament of the Jordan Legacy 312, which is inseparable from the brand Just Don and the founder Don C.

Don C and Kanye West and Virgil Abloh are friends. I believe that you will see these two people will speak straight,  they are a group of people, it is no wonder that the shoes will be the same situation. But it’s not exactly the same. Don C used to be the performance DJ of Kanye West. It is because of these experiences that the brand Just Don, which was founded in 2011, is full of luxury.

On the body of the Jordan Legacy 312, the “Nike Pack” series with the “JUST DON” logo is still on the tongue. The price from the offer price to the market price is much lower than before. For this, in addition to market recognition and volume. In addition to the factors, in the heart of Don C, the Jordan Legacy 312 launched this time, the goal is to bring more energy to the city of Chicago.

Jordan Legacy 312 has arrived as scheduled. From the current release plan, the Jordan Legacy 312 will launch a new color scheme based on the classic colors of the NBA Knicks, Lakers and Pistons. As the color of the shoes is increased, we are getting closer and closer to the shoes. If you want to judge a person, a concept and a pair of shoes.

Air Jordan 33 Performance Review

From the official release to got the shoe, the Air Jordan 33 has always maintained a high degree of attention, which coupled with the introduction of new technology and a variety of color , making it one of  the most of popular sneaker in the next half of 2018 .

Many players who want to got this shoes when released .However, unlike the previous  version of Jordans , the subversive design and innovative FastFit fastening system have been attention by lot of peoples. some players are still hesitate to get it .They want to figure out how about  the performance? Now we will check it today .

The Air Jordan XXXIII rewrites the story of the greatest basketball shoe on the planet. Its revolutionary FastFit closure system locks you in for flight, while its new Flightspeed technology is tuned for propulsion.I never saw the sneakers which have this setting.How does the Air Jordan 33 wear and how does the FastFit fastening system work?

I was so excited when I got it .Dressed in a White, Metallic Gold, Black, and Vast Grey color scheme. This Air Jordan 33 feature a White-based upper with Gold accents on the tongues and Nike Air heels. Both Black and Red detailing throughout atop an icy translucent outsole completes the design.And the material is so comfortable.
Then the Velcro on the inside of the shoe to make the shoe fit more closely and lock the heel in the shoe.

 

Adjust the FastFit fastening system, the pull with red ribbon, you will hear the mechanically sound, The shoes will be lockdown the feet when fastening ,it is easy and save time .

 

 

Because of the Air Jordan 33 shoe design, it has already brought good wrapping before the FastFit fastening system is adjusted, and the FastFit fastening system did a great help , the fastening system will make the foot  fit more tightly.

Especially when you have been exercising for a period of time, the feet  will feel very stretched. At this time, the black and yellow ribbon next to the tug will be lifted. Then the  cable will be released. You can shake your feet to the left and right to adjust to a comfortable state.

 

 

Not in a bad way, but there is definitely room for user error. For those that follow me on Instagram, you’re likely aware that I had a major blister on my arch appear while testing the Air Jordan 33

 

Most of the players focus on one of the points, while the Air Jordan 33’s forefoot large zoom air cushion with a length-shaped hexagonal ultra-thin Zoom air cushion, how about the performance ?

 

I player  4 different  basketball games in different court .I felt it is new and perfect shoes  each game, the AIR JORDAN 33 is super stability, excellent grip and good maneuverability. The Air Jordan 33 is compared to other sneakers.

It was the FastFit system that I’ve been really trying to adjust to and now I know not to tighten the shoes up quite to the extent that I had.

I believe that people who played the Air Jordan 28 will be crazy about midsole, and the new Air Jordan 33 will bring almost the same midsole  cushioning . Flight Speed Midsole incorporates a carbon fiber sheet that is the same process as the Zoom VaporFly 4%, which increases the reaction speed of the forward sill.

 

In addition to the black and red color Chinese limited-edition Air Jordan 33 “Tech Pack”, the future will also launch the black and white Air Jordan 33 “Future Flight”, the pure black color matching Air Jordan 33 “Blackout”, and Guo Ailun only released in China. PE version Air Jordan 33 “Jade”.

 

For the fitting :

Air Jordan 33 is not biased, you can choose the normal size to buy. Because of personal habits, I like to choose a big size sneaker and wear two pairs of thick socks. The Air Jordan 33 is the same as most basketball shoes, and there is no squeezing or oversized.

Overall ,I enjoy the shoe once again and complete testing it for the full performance review. The shoe has definitely perfect  about the performance .I’ve got scars from Curry 4, Curry 5, Soldier 10, LeBron 9, Kobe 7 System ,but I like the FastFit system very much .

Nike Kobe NXT 360 Performance Review

Nike was released the new sneaker ——Nike Flyknit 360 in the April. As the first used in basketball shoes , we will check it what is the different for Nike Kobe NXT 360.

Here we go .

The KOBE NXT 360’s design — a three-part structure of wrap-around Flyknit, a drop-in dual-density midsole and an outsole — is predicated on providing the surest possible footing. That is suit for the Kobe Bryant play.

The low-cut construction and Flyknit upper meet the current standards of the Kobe line, but there’s way more to this new model that make it the best Kobe yet.

A next-generation Flyknit construction warps the foot completely in 360 degrees for a second-skin fit, while the dual-density drop-in foam midsole pairs Nike REACT technology and Lunarlon to maximize cushioning and response.

There is a huge TPU to lockdown the shoes .

The sole was combine with React and Lunarlon,though there are more different of Kobe a.d Mid’ Lunarlon,but the Kobe NXT 360 have the  TPU model  ,so what is the affection ? The outsole is wear resistant and the mid-layer is of shock absorbing.

 

As we know ,the React of  Hyperdunk 2017  is great ,then the  React of Superfly.2017 just so so ,Kobe NXT 360 also used the React  too, it is di a great job .

The Kobe 360 NXT’s React feels more like the feeling of a thinner version of Nike Epic React Flyknit, a soft material. May be the limitations of external materials make React’s jumper can be more freely.However, the thinner midsole  will be move quickly.

 

In addition to cushioning and midsole performance well, KOBE NXT 360 insole almost guarantees the performance of all shoes. The huge extension of both sides  with the TPU module did a great job,  stabilizes the heel, while the arch and forefoot TPU patch are the heroes of the stable feet in the breakthrough and so on .

 

For the material: 360-degrees of Flyknit equals one word: bomb. This thin material is so durable and supportive it’s mind boggling because it’s like nothing is there. Then the material is amazing and more density .The Flyknit doesn’t stretch much due to the heating process that sets it, but because it wraps beneath the foot (360-degrees) it moves with you so well I honestly don’t have anything negative to say it. but the supporting is a part from this material.

 

For the ventilation : it is great ,maybe the material reason ,an external heel counter also found its way onto the 360’s and does a damn good job at cradling the heel and locking it down.The wrap-around Flyknit construction of the KOBE 360 is steamed directly on the last to mimic the anatomical shape of the foot, allowing for a more conformed fit as well as the elimination of harsh corners both on the footbed and then with ground contact.

 

 

 

The sneakers have a good grip but it is often slippery in dusty outfields. Afterwards, we found out that the outsole of the shoes was actually “collect dust”. It is recommended that played inside .

You get a drop-in midsole that features Lunarlon foam along outer edge for structure and support. Plush React foam is used at the center of the midsole for that feel-good softness. I did have to re-lace the Kobe NXT 360 a few times, but once the materials broke in and took the shape of my foot I was able to dial in the lockdown the way I wanted.

Although the insole contracted most of the performance of the shoes, the uppers and durability of the Flyknit 360 at the expense of a comfortable package really led to the “drop” of the shoes. However, such attempts still allowed the autumn harvest to be even more successful. Fast, and the shoes have become lighter, reaching Bryant’s own requirements for shoes.

Overall, the Kobe NXT 360 has  been a great job ,the material is  amazing ,the cushioning and supporting also performance . The drop-in for the KOBE 360 balances Lunarlon foam on the perimeter, which provides a supportive platform on the bank, with plush Nike REACT technology directly underfoot for all-game comfort.

Jordan Ultra Fly 2 Performance Review

My first impression of Ultra Fly 2 came from the “flight General Administration” activity of the summer Jordan in the 2017. At that time, .Fly 2017 of the trial shoe money was completely finished, the staff sent to the late player is this pair of Ultra Fly 2. I am so luck that got one . I was impressed by its shape.

The design of  in Air Jordan 15, using a similar CP3 IX lacing system has become the most surprise of  Ultra Fly 2 . At the same time, the design of the integrated shoe body and the outer surface of the rubber can not improve the facial value of the shoes, but also further forms a package similar to the whole palm inner boot, so that people will not have much doubt about the shoe’s body performance.

 

For the traction, the design of  zoom+ Hex zoom , and the placement of TPU in arch are great. Although this configuration is not outstanding at the original price , it is indeed within the range of the price. On the big bottom, the shoe is designed with a ripple pattern, which is also the same as SuperFly 2017 at the time.

 

 

For wrapping ,Because the design between the integral upper inner cladding lining directly (no tongue design), shoes wrapping can be said to be strong. After wearing shoes for more than a week, you can feel that the package is very tight .

 

 

The heel of the shoes also contains a hard – textured built-in module,  with the upwards and thickened inner linings, which can lock your heel firmly.

For the cushioning .The Ultra.Fly 2 uses heel and forefoot Zoom Air.but shoes in cushioning comfort and it is really worth praising. To guard, it   just perfect cushioning , let it become a pair of shoes is very suitable for the defender to break the shoes.The Ultra.Fly 2 starts off feeling a bit heavy feeling underfoot. This is due to the fairly dense Phylon midsole used here. so maybe you will feel more harder. 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. but for some player, maybe it just perfect.

 

For the supporting ,The support features one would expect to be in place are all here and accounted for. That is great. Surprise after playing, it become a pair of shoes is very suitable for the defender to break the shoes.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. For me, 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.   

Overall, Ultra Fly 2 X is very suitable for breakthrough players’ , for the strong package to the metamorphosis and stability, and the “hidden attribute” of the big bottom can improve the cost performance of these shoes.also if you like the PG 1, it will the best one choice.
