This is a very appealing shoe to wear out as it is iconic and eye catching. The different layers of the shoe wrapped around make for a great canvas for colours and different design elements.
The upper is made from softer material to allow for more comfort and different textures. The chunky midsole is great because there is plenty of cushioning as well as some support for the foot. The accents around the lace loops at the top are a distinct touch for the shoe and help identify it as a piece of basketball history.
The outsole is good because it gets plenty of traction while, like the midsole, has plenty of protection for the foot. The heel clip helps hold the shoe together while supporting a rubber grip that sticks up over the top to grab and assist putting the shoe on, which can be a struggle sometimes.
Overall, this is a great shoe for wearing around as it will catch a lot of eyes. However, it can be ill fitting because the upper is not so flexible to fit with the foot. A successful piece of footwear from the basketball legend.
This shoe has a strong outsole, springy midsole and pliable upper make this a comfortable shoe to wear. This is widely accepted as the most comfortable Air Jordan of all time and one worn, it is easy to see why.
The upper is made of softer material than the rest for a more plush feel. The signature leather stripe down the side helps make this more noticeable and stand out among other footwear. The laces are strong but do fray if not cared for. The tongue is also padded for additional comfort.
The outsole is tougher than other shoes and can seem too rigid at first. However over time it loosens up and creates a spring effect that feels helpful when jumping. This combined with the cushioning in the outsole make for a smooth walk.
Overall, this shoe is great for leisure wear and won’t disappoint. The combination of different materials and textures also help to make this a really stand out piece of footwear.

The upper is supple and doesn’t rub on your foot as you walk. There will be the usual creases across the toe box but it is near impossible to wear these and not get them. The tongue is also padded which helps to increase the level of comfort.
The mid sole has a visible airbag in the back as well as some cushioning all the way along. The iconic detailing on the outside definitely helps make this a head turning piece of footwear. The outsole has good traction as well as another great footprint for when you can leave one.
Overall, this is another iconic shoe from an iconic mans career. While the history alone behind this makes it valuable, it is also simply a great shoe to walk around in.
This shoe is comfortable with more movement in the ankle the the high version. This is an aethesthetically pleasing shoe that will turn heads everywhere.
The upper is comprimised of a good looking pattern that helps hold the structure of the shoe together. The laces are tough to pull really tight but the shoe is still comfortable to wear as long as your dont plan on putting it through its passes.
The outsole has an interesting pattern to keep it looking great while allowing plenty of traction. The midsole with the visible air is another interesting focal point. There is plenty of suspension for comfort when moving around.
The heel has a lot of support to push against while also having a flexible top to insert the foot in. There is also a somewhat flexible handle to hold onto when putting on and taking off the shoe.
Overall, this is a great shoe for wearing around and turning heads. There are a lot of features of this shoe to keep fans interested for a long time, as they already have.
This shoe is a great help for those with leaping ability, but if you are not used to it, you may need to try and focus staying on the ground. The ability to push the user into the air isunparelled and may take some getting used to.
The heel clip is aesthetically pleasing while giving a good amount of support to the user. The collar is also supportive while being flexible enough to allow for simple putting on and taking off. The mesh upper, reminiscent of the Air Jordan Four, is another focal point on this shoe, but while it is flexible, the materials it is covering are not quite as bendy.
The outsole is sturdy and provides plenty of space to push off with. The technology put into the midsole as well as the outsole does a very good job of pushing the wearer further away from the ground and possibly increasing hieght.
Overall, this shoe is really great footwear with a lot of technology put into it for its very namesake. With an athlete such as Blake Griffin piloting it, as well as others in the NBA, this shoe could have a really great run.
This shoe is designed to be the peak of fashion in Jordan’s lifestlye collection and there are a lot of features that show that. While inspired by the Air Jordan 11 this shoe is definately not designed for the court.
The outsole is thick and unexpectedly flexible to allow for more natural movement. There is not a lot of grip on the bottom but as this is not a performance shoe the bottom is a noticeable point. The midsole is hidden inside the outsole with a good amount of suspension for comfort.
The upper is split into two sections. The lower reflective part, and the laces section. The reflective part shines when struck in low light which helps keep the wearer safe. The laces have a fresh take by being tucked into the upper rather than being visible while also having triangular lace loops for another newer feature.
Overall, this shoe is comfortable and will turn heads when worn. It was a bold move for Westbrook to agree to make only a lifestyle shoe while championing the Jordan flagship model, however his fashion style shows that he has a keen eye and will have success in the shoe game.
This shoe is incredibly comfortable when worn and the only real issue is getting it on. Everything about this is designed so that once the shoe is on, there are no more concerns for your feet.
The insole is a very thick lunalon make which walking easy on the feet with very little feeling of the contact. The bottom is a good thickness to help for that as well.
The collar of the shoe is very tough and can make the shoe tricky to get on. Once the foot is a fair distance into the shoe, it can be used to pull the shoe on. The strap around the top helps secure the foot once it is in as well.
The upper is breathable, but can still overheat in above average conditions. The laces are great at holding both the foot and ankle in the right place for maximum comfort.
Overall, this shoe is all about being stylish in a classic silhouette while being able to wear it for a considerable amount of time without wearing down on comfort. Another update on this could be more flexible materials.
This is a very comfortable shoe with plenty of support and ventilation, but is definately not designed for damper conditions outdoors. Although this shoe has plenty of history behind it, it is famously worn indoors and can get damaged fairly easily outdoors.
The Upper is supple and allows plenty of foot movement. With a neoprene sock liner to help the shoe hug the foot and stop the shoe rubbing against the wearer. However the upper is made of materials that can become saturated when wet and this can make it less than comfortable.
The outsole is aesthetically pleasing with the gemetric shapes and colours. It has also got a good amount of grip. The heel clip also looks great as another piece of history is attached with the number twenty-three. It is effective at supporting the back of the shoe when moving at pace.
The colourful tongue on the shoe combined with more shapes makes another focal point on this shoe that makes it even more of a historical release. There is also a lot of laces on this shoe so you won’t run short when tying up.
Overall, this is a great shoe for casual wear, but not for any weather conditions but sunny. It is extremely comfortable and turns heads when walking along.
This is one of the most coveted Air Jordan shoes of all times and for good reason. They are very aesthetically pleasing, comfortable and very worth the money.
The overall look is a smart pair of trainers that in some colourways, could be worn with some suits. However they are still performance shoes that can be worn on and off the court and they look good on both.
The upper has two main sections. There is the Air Jordan ten-esque top and laces that flex with the foot for added comfort and style. There is also the perimeter of the top which is harder and shinier for a contrast, to provide support and to help the shoe keep its shape.
The sole is another contrasting piece. The grip is placed in the middle of the forefoot and the heel instead of running along the whole bottom of the shoe. The outsole shank is reminiscent of a pair of foamposites and adds yet another contrast to the overall piece. The main outsole then has a separate and different grip pattern to continue with the contrasts.
Overall, this is a very pleasing shoe to look at while the materials and design lead to a very comfortable shoe that doesn’t hug the shoe but is also quite tight on.
Once it is worn in, this is a very comfortable pair of shoes. However up to that point they can be uncomfortable as they are of sturdy construction and need to be flexed a bit to become a bit more malleable and conform a bit more to the foot.
To start the silhouette is quite narrow to begin with so getting it on for the first time can be quite difficult. However this can be solved by loosening the laces, even though the laces can be tricky to loosen in the first place as they seem almost stuck in place. After a couple times of wearing them, this goes away a bit but they stay fairly stiff.
Even with this, when they are on, they are still comfortable and can be worn for a long time without getting sore feet. The high top is also helpful because it helps to support the ankle and is a little padded to give extra comfort. However the high top is one of the reasons the shoe can be tricky to get onto the wearer’s feet.
Overall, this is a comfortable shoe that takes some getting used to, but as a piece of Jordan Brand history coming up on its thirtieth anniversary, this could be a great buy. If your a collector, this is a must buy and if your a sneaker afficianado, the same applies.
