Nike Air Jordan 4 Retro Review

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.

Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro High KO Review

This shoe is stylish and eye catching as the original but the new materials make it a touch more wearable in the hotter months with its increase in breath-ability. The softer materials can help make these slightly more comfortable to wear for longer walks.

The silhouette is the famous Air Jordan 1 outline that is known the world over. The Swoosh runs all the way from the sides around the back to help the colour scheme feel fluid and make another standout point of the shoe.

The Air Jordan wings on the side help identify this as shoe royalty. The toe box is a good size so that the wearers toes don’t get crushed as you bend them while walking. The outsole has good traction as well as leaving the prints behind of the first shoe in long ongoing legacy.

Overall, this shoe will catch eyes and will never go out of style. Comfortable to wear will always be a bonus too.

Nike Lebron 13 Basketball Shoe Review

This shoe is similar to the previous model but with more refined features that make this a more effective piece of footwear. This is effective while allowing plenty of movement and leaping ability.

The hyperposite construction is still sturdy but allows for more movement with more clever placement of the stronger material. The placement along the top of the shoe also helps keep the shoe flexible while holding shape. It can be uncomfortable if worn for extended periods but is great otherwise.

The Flywire and laces help hold the whole top of the shoe down to the foot to keep energy flowing easily through the shoe. The outsole shank as it gives the shoe its shape while holding the arch of the foot in place. The heel loop also helps to make the shoe easy to put on and take off.

The outsole has pockets of airbags that help the wearer to leap further and higher while being comfortable to walk and run in. The midsole has a good amount of cushioning that helps to make sure that when the wearer is moving, the damage to their knees and ankles is minimalized.

Overall, this shoe is great for the sport of basketball and is still a step forward despite the comparisons to the previous shoe. Let us see if it will bring Lebron any luck this season.

Nike Court Force Shoe Review

This shoe is very comfortable to wear and has especially good ankle comfort. They are aethestically pleasing and will make people turn thier heads to have a second look.

The padding around the collar really helps to make walking along comfy with the support and comfort it brings. The upper is supple and allows a lot of movement in the toes. The laces also lock the foot down without hindering movement form the toes.

The midsole brings some cusioning but not enough to make you feel,like your bouncing along, so for more leisure wear instead of sport. The outsole has great grip with a ball point to allow for pivots and has that nike branding incase your leaving footprints behind.

Overall, this shoe is clearly not intended for hard exercise but for more leisurely activities, they are perfect. Great looking and comfortable is the name of the game and these shoes deliver.

Nike Basketball Lebron Soldier Nine Shoe Review

This shoe is fantastically comfortable and has plenty of features to secure your foot inside the shoe. The use of the technologies is great with a wider audiance due to the Flyease technology.

Flyease is the latest development due to a message recieved from a young person with physical limitations. He asked for a shoe that was easierr to get on and off and that would be secure. Nike have then opened the sides up more on the shoe and added additional foot straps so that the foot is easier to get into and out of the shoe, while the straps mean you can tighten different parts of the shoe to your perfect level of comfort.

The outline design is similar to the previous model, minus the strapping, but with a small hyperposite like shape up the outside for additional stability. The toe box is pretty fluid allowing for plenty of flexibility but be careful if you like to keep your shoes pristine as the sheen across the front will flake off easily if you catch it on anything.

The laces help lockdown the mid section of the shoe and the straps hold down the rest. The outsole has good traction and helps propel the wearer forward.

Overall, this is a great shoe for all to wear, but is especially relevant to those who may find your typical shoe difficult to wear. Well done to Nike for expanding thier audiance.

Nike Air Jordan Westbrook 0 Lifestyle shoe Review

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.

Nike Air Force One CMFT Lux Shoe Review

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.

Nike Air Jordan Seven Retro Review

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.

Mobb Deep – Survival Of The Fittest EP Review

This is a great testament to the longevity of Mobb Deep as they use a remix of thier classic song for the NBA and to make a great EP around it. Havoc and Prodigy both do good work on here to create a good EP.

The production is excellent and speaks right to the core audiance of Mobb Deep. Each track is individual with a big case for being either a future, and in one case currant, classic. They may want to try something a bit further out of thier wheelhouse so that they dont get stuck in a rutt. However if what they are doing is working, dont change it.

The lyricism is good and helps keep that classic Mobb Deep sheen over the project. While it is not the best lyrical performance in the rap game, the delivery adds impact and they aren’t slouches. It is true that a few more complex rhymes could show that they are still growing as a group but they have lasted a long time doing this and clearly know what they are doing.

Overall, this is a good EP that helps to show that Mobb Deep still have the skills to not only be in Hip Hop, but to be solid and still be able to make songs that everyone can enjoy.
