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.
These shoes are extremely comfortable. The construction is solid and there is plenty of ventilation if your wearing them for a long time. The materials are supple for when the foot moves, however the toe box is large and creases fairly easily. The air bag works well for the cushioning and makes each step very easy and light, despite the size of the shoe.
The high top offers a lot of ankle protection for the wearer while still being comfortable. The padding on it is not intrusive while wearing it, but can make the ankle hot by cutting off an air flow with no top vents. The other thing is that the top is very squeaky while walking but this could mostly be because of the air pump.
The air pump works fantastically to increase and decrease the level of support inside the shoe. By pumping air in via the pump at the top of the ankle, air bags placed around the back of the shoe inflate and press closer to the foot of the wearer to decrease the level of slip on the inside. To decrease the support, there is a button on the back of the shoe that lets you push the air out again. This is a fantastic point of the shoe.
Overall, this is a fantastic shoe that is comfortable, head turning and supportive. If you want a shoe that will support the whole ankle area and not just the foot, this is the choice. If you want a shoe with a special focal point, the air pump, then this is the shoe for you. It has deep roots in basketball history and should be a must have due to the shoes having being worn in “White Men Can’t Jump” by Woody Harrelson.
