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 is comfortable to wear and provides good support for your ankle, but can be a pain to put on. The height of the collar means that it is a pain to get around the bend of the ankle. On the other hand, when on and tied, it feels natural and flows with the foot.
The upper is constructed from layers of materials, leather and fabric, which make a sturdy construction while the different textures make a nice focal point to make the shoes stand out. It also makes it easier to put different colours into the design.
The outsole follows the classic pattern with the turn circles at the back and at the ball of the foot. It gets good traction and the cushioning in the midsole makes this very comfortable to walk in.
The laces are great because they tend not to come undone if tied properly and the designs on the tongue and and heel clip show the makers of this shoe as well as looking fantastic.
Overall, a very comfortable shoe to wear once it is on. The Westbrook range is great for off the court wear as he pilots the flagship Jordan model on the cart and will hopefully continue to do so.
This is a very comfortable shoe with plenty of padding and support. This is a very high shoe, so there may be some squeaking as you walk in them. However when outside the other noises from the surrounding area will drown it out.
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 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.
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 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.
This is a head turning pair of shoes. The design itself is stand out enough to turn heads without any particularly bright colourway. Inspired by the Ferrari make of cars, it gives the impression of speed and being streamlined. The badge on the side imitates that of Ferrari and helps lend a more luxury feel to the shoe.
The tongue of the shoe is special in the sense that it rises to the regular height with padding, and then continues higher with a fabric part that does add or subtract from the comfort of the shoe, but it does add more of a profile to the shoe.
The outsole is unique to the shoe as it actually has the number 14 put in as part of the design, which helps to make it more unique to the model.
The heel counter has the featured number 23 of Michael Jordan as well as the jumpman logo printed on it. These however are put on top of the rubber heel counter that features a tyre like pattern on, so as to fit in with the Ferrari inspiration. This helps to add another unique point to the shoe.
There are a couple of points to take into account when purchasing this shoe. FIrst is that they crease very easily and if you like your shoes looking absolutely pristine, this could be a problem. Another is that the back of the shoe is quite high and slopes inward toward your ankle. This causes it to push gently into your leg as you walk, which could be uncomfortable to some. It does however make you walk faster, like driving a Ferrari in comparison to a Prius. This may not have been intentional but it does help with the Ferrari comparison.
Overall, this is a nice shoe that may not be for everyone, but is a great addition to any collection and is definitely a must have if your a fan of Nike or Jordan brand.
