Nike Air Jordan 5 Retro Review

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.

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 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 KD7 basketball shoe review

This is a quick moving, high jumping shoe. The cushioning is of such great quality that when you jump into the air it actually feels like the shoe is propelling you away from the ground and toward the hoop. The airbag is great and helps protect the heel of your foot while adding an attractive look to the shoe overall.

The upper is breathable mesh while the heel is hyperposite construction to lend a feeling of support and manoeuvrability. The Flywire helps to lockdown the shoe for a feeling of almost bonding the shoe to your foot and helping to create a good flow of energy between the foot and the floor.

The foot strap is great for keeping the laces under control and for holding the shoe close to the foot to help stop the loss of energy between foot and shoe. It also helps add another stunning visual point from a cosmetic point of view.

Overall, this is a great shoe for both speed and for lift off and should have great success on the court.
