Better Air Jordan 3: “True Blue” or “Seoul”

Jordan Brand is currently celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the Air Jordan 3 in 2018. For the occasion, there has been a few OG and new colorways that have debuted.

One OG pair that didn’t arrive during its celebration is the “True Blue” colorway, which was last released back in 2016. The remastered version came with “Nike Air” logos on the heels.

Technically, the 2016 Nike Air Jordan 3 will be the second time we see them release, the first of course being in 1988. We saw the True Blue 3 retro for the first time in 2001 which came with the Jumpman branding. We once again saw this pair release in 2011 when the brand celebrated the 23rd anniversary of the shoes. They still came with Jumpman branding, but did have the original style box.

For 2016, the brand will return the True Blue Jordan 3 just like the originals. Featuring tumbled and smooth leather through the uppers, while Blue runs through the mudguard, Nike Air branding on the heel, eyelets and liner. The elephant print is expected to return just like in 1988, which will wrap the heel, toe box and hinted on the uppers. The last details are a White midsole and Grey outsole.

Released in very limited quantities and only available in South Korea, the “Seoul” Air Jordan 3 was one of the newer colorway that arrived in 2018. This special edition release celebrates two sports milestones that took place in 1988: the NBA Slam Dunk contest won by Michael Jordan after taking flight from the free throw line, and the Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea.

The Air Jordan 3 Seoul isThe Taegukgi (Korean flag) inspires the shoe’s overall color scheme, with the “taeguk” symbol expressed through the lining and collar’s blue and red and the white upper representing peace and purity (as it does on the flag). 서울 (Seoul) is featured on the left inner tongue, while the 1988 summer games motto 화합과 전진 (Harmony and Progress) is featured on the right inner tongue. The heel reads “Nike Air” in a clear nod to the original Air Jordan 3.

While majority of us weren’t able to get our hands on the “Seoul” Air Jordan 3, if you did have the option of picking one of these to buy for retail, which would it be?

‘Bordeaux’ Air Jordan 7 retro performance reviews


Despite having released in 2011, the ‘Bordeaux’ Air Jordan 7 For Sale Retro is being remastered and re-released in the Summer of 2015.These should have better materials compare with 2011 version .and the shape has been slightly altered.Another change from the 2011 pair is that this 2018 version has “NIKE AIR” on the insoles, which I’m sure no one will be complaining about.

It was born in 1992 which inspired by Africa travel by Tinker Hatfield. wilderness gallop of animal , wine of french , all of elements are into the Air Jordan 7 Retro .it is a amazing designer so far.

Air Jordan VII offers some very nice traction that can keep you planted and stable throughout gameplay.The overall surface area is very good no matter your position or movements. If plying in the clean court , it is the best choice ,but the duty court , it is not very well for AJ7 which  was remedied by consistently wiping the bottom .

The most notable difference between the AJ7 and the previous models would be the overall cushion. The original and first round retro releases featured an embedded full length Air unit and these newer retro models have them placed directly under foot.

The molded arch does its job while the overall fit and materials will take care of the rest for you

  • Workmanship ; materials held up nicely, most of the visible damage to the shoe is on the painted sections of the midsole so the leather is definitely a reliable option. Each material option offers different levels of support so if you wish to maximize support then go with the leather versions.

  • Cushion :The original and first round retro releases featured an embedded full length Air unit and these newer retro models have them placed directly under foot.

  • Breathbility: it is not very well because of the leather material ,especial for plying long time .

  •  Appearance: whatever the colorway or design of “Bordeaux” ,for me ,it is amazing .

  •  Cost-effect : The quality and value for money .


Overall , Air Jordan 7 “Bordeaux” is possibly the best early Air Jordan Release 2018  for on-court purposes.They are the classic so far.  They are a very well rounded shoe in general when compared to the previous models as they offer the best cushion, solid traction, reliable materials with a pretty solid fit, above average ventilation and still offer plenty of support.

air jordan iv retro performance reviews


Traction – The Air Jordan iv doesn’t exactly boast a specific traction pattern or surface & they don’t look to be overly impressive either, however, if kept clean they are actually very good at keeping your foot planted on the floor no matter what you were doing.

This was noted on a previous Performance Teaser but if you can keep the clear sections free of debris then your experience will be a pleasant one. I personally use a traction mat but you can easily bring a lint roller or a roll of duct tape with you to quickly remove debris from the sole… a good old fashioned hand wipe is also adequate so long as you are consistent with it.

Cushion – This is just as it has been with the Air Jordan 3 & 4, Air Jordan 5 is a bit better, so prepare yourself for minimal cushion underfoot. The Polyurethane is dense and the Air Units are embedded within so you won’t receive a comfortable ride but the impact is being absorbed a little.

An easy solution to any cushion issue is an insole swap. There are plenty to choose from and can be catered to your specific needs. I opted to use the SofSole insole – not for cushion – and I will explain more a bit further down.

Material – With this particular shoes there are a variety of material options available depending on the colorway chosen. The reason I went with the Carmine colorway is due to the dual material layers placed along the upper which provided me with proper fit & support where I needed – leather sections – and maintained flexibility where I needed – mostly at the forefoot with the nubuck sections. Overall durability is pretty nice as well given that these are a newer Retro product and they were able to withstand heavy beatings on-court.

Fit – The overall fit is decent as is… nothing too spectacular. This was mostly due to the dead space inside the shoe since they have very little padding with the exception of the collar & heel. Going down to a size 8.5 versus my usual size 9 would have helped a bit but the length could have been an issue and caused toe jamming… which hurts like hell if you’ve never experienced it before.

In the Cushion section I mentioned the insole swap… the fit was the reason why I chose to replace the insole with a thicker one. The added height was able to lift my foot up enough to allow the materials to properly function which then provided me with a great overall fit and lockdown once fully laced.

Ventilation – Quite possibly the most well ventilated Air Jordan model within the entire lineup. Plenty of perforations are in place and they aren’t blocked or lined with excess materials hindering the air flow.

Support – Not much support is found other than with the fit itself. Materials will help with this so you need to choose wisely if you wanted to play in a pair. Like I mentioned above, if you want some material support and flexibility along the upper then this type of setup would work as far as materials are concerned. If you need more support than I would go with leather upper and for less support a nubuck or suede upper.

Overall – Not a bad shoe – in my opinion – but not the best either. It’s a shoe that offers many great attributes while falling short on others… like most shoes. If you require adequate traction (if outsoles are kept clean), durability & ventilation then the Air Jordan 4 may be a good option for you. Their lack of cushion and inferior fit can easily be remedied with a simple insole swap which then makes these a very well rounded performer on-court

Most Poupular Air Jordan 11 performacne reviews


Traction – The overall traction was very solid with all things considered. Usually when you have a translucent outsole you lose traction when dust or debris is on the court but thankfully the Air Jordan 11 for sale have solid rubber traction pods located in the heel and forefoot.

The clear sections are nice and sticky straight out the box, which is good and bad depending on court conditions. However, I played on well-maintained courts in addition to debris ridden floors and the Air Jordan XI held up perfectly fine. Worst that happened was that I needed to wipe the outsole semi-often on dusty courts.

Cushion – With the lightweight Phylon and full length Air unit in place, cushion is solid as well. While they aren’t as soft as the original or 2000/01 Retro releases, they are still leaps and bounds better than previous Air Jordan models. Impact absorption is available and consistent throughout while still maintaining decent court feel in the forefoot.

* Disclaimer * cushion is as stated in the Silver Anniversary, Cool Grey, Concord & most likely the upcoming Black/ Red colorway which are all post 2010. Air Jordan 11’s from the 2008 CDP & 2009 Space Jams are not the same.

Material – Patent leather and ballistic nylon mesh are used along the upper… oh, and a very small piece of cheap split grain leather is located at the heel. Overall, the materials are nice. The patent leather isn’t quite as strong as it could have been if it were a bit thicker but all in all, the materials performed pretty much on par with the original and previous Retro versions.
If they made an Air Jordan 11.5 with Fuse replacing the eyelets and mid panels, open mesh in place of the ballistic nylon mesh and a Jordan Melo M8 patent leather cut with heel and forefoot embedded Zoom Air… I’m drooling just thinking about it.

Fit – They fit true to size, wide footers may want to get ½ size larger or wait for the materials to break-in a bit… which they will. The mesh wraps around your foot perfectly and the patent ads some support which is greatly needed. Lock down is great all the way up the shoe so there isn’t much to complain about. Only thfng that could pose a problem is that the materials are ‘weak’ in comparison to today’s synthetics but this is where growing up in the 90’s comes into play… we’re used to this type of shoe so it doesn’t bother us at all.

Ventilation – It isn’t great but it isn’t horrible. The material is breathable so that’s going to scores some points but its noticeably not as ventilated as something like the kd 10 for sale , which I still feel has the best ventilation out of the entire lineup.

Support – If the materials didn’t move with your foot so much I would say the support is great. The Carbon Fiber adds a lot of support along the entire base of the foot, not just the arch, and the overall fit provides you with the extra reassurance you’d want or need… materials just get a bit flimsy… its mesh… not much you can do.

Overall – The Air Jordan XI is a straight beast on-court. They look good, feel good and they play well on top of that. I hoped the quality wouldn’t obstruct my opinion on their performance and it honestly hasn’t. These are still one of my personal favorite on-court options of all time. There are better options, of course, but just knowing that you won’t lose and ankle or mess up your knees is definitely something to consider. It’s really their increased price that will cause someone to not wear these on-courts… I had someone come up to me one night after playing and they said “I’ve never seen anyone rock Concord’s to hoop… you must have two pairs.” I do… but even if I only had one… they’re worth playing in. http://www.kd10sale.com

Russell Westbrook and Kawhi Leonard's Bright Jordan 30s


The Oklahoma City Thunder/San Antonio Spurs playoff series is an interesting one from a sneaker standpoint, featuring Air Jordan 30 exclusives on the feet of Jordan Brand athletes Russell Westbrook and Kawhi Leonard.

Westbrook's group is of course the flashier one, using brilliant orange looks and a few playing up the galactic theme of the shoe. Leonard's match with his Spurs uniform and wear his "The Hand" logo on the tongues.

Thes best sale shoes:Air Jordan 30 XXX White/Black-Wolf Grey Russell Westbrook Shoes

Hopefully you do, and the allure of this new Tinker Hatfield creation is winning you over with each new image (if it hasn’t already). The first colorway seen here in white, black and Wolf Grey, rest atop a midsole closely joined to the iteration that appeared on the Air Jordan 31, while a thicker outsole allows for greater traction and overall heightened footing. Tongue branding marks another unique addition to the budding silhouette, as it disguises the logo beneath lenticular beads deeply embedded into the Flyweave fabrication.

Another distinctive element is directed at the heel, which bears an “XXX” graphic to correlate with its respective place in the history of the Jordan lineage as well as emulating a basketball net. In addition, the toe piece utilizes a new printing technique that consists of a dotted process that’s durable and breathable, as it’s all supplemented atop a lightweight and revamped FlightSpeed outsole that offers maximum traction and performance.

While these two teams are pretty fairly matched in their sneakers, the first game was a lopsided affair, with the Spurs emerging victorious in a 124-92 victory that suggests the days are numbered for the appearance of any Westbrook footwear in this postseason.

Jordan 4 Make Way for Royalty Jordan releases 2017

 Jordan 4 Make Way for Royalty  Jordan releases 2017


Make way for royalty with one of the Jordan releases 2017 as these kicks become available on the 5th of January. One of the new Jordans, the shoes will sell for $190 which is more or less what all other Air Jordan sneakers are sold for.


So why would you choose this one amongst the others? To start off, it is a “Royalty” edition, bearing the colors of black, metallic gold, and white. The Air Jordan 4 silhouette is not bad either as it utilizes a nubuck upper and pristine white soles.


A Glance at the Design
The shoes make good use of a layering approach with a mesh as the initial layer topped by more traditional plain black leather. The addition of gold is what really sets these kicks apart from all other Air Jordan 4 releases in the past. The gold is generously displayed on the shoes starting with the Jumpman logo on the tongue. The word “Flight” is placed on the bottom of the logo, also inscribed in golden coloring.


Gold metallic pieces are used as buckles for the laces, adding to the appearance of Royalty. Combined with the pure black coloring of this Air Jordan 4 release, you can tell that Nike aimed for “class” and “timeless” with this particular piece. In all honesty, it is tough to find another mid-ranged Nike shoe that carries the same distinctive prestige.


The laces are kept basic with a black coloring and a flat design. That is actually a good thing since this means you can easily replace the laces should you lose them at some point.


The tongue is also done in solid black with only the Jumpman logo as its marking. From the back, you can see another Jumpman logo – this one also using the same gold coloring.


The soles are done in basic white which helps set off the black and gold color combination. This creates a very clean feel to the shoes – making it perfect for practically anything from a McDonalds visit to walking the red


The bottom portion is a fairly basic combination of black and white with a Jumpman logo on the center – this one done in black.


All in all, it is a pretty sweet piece for shoes priced at just $190 by Air Jordan. If you are going to buy just one piece this year, this is definitely a good bet as the shoes hit that perfect balance of class, style, and pricing.


Of course – you can always wait for other models if you do not like it for hoopjordan.com

Bring out the Jordan 10 Double Nickel

Bring out the Jordan 10 Double Nickel
As Jordan Brand celebrates Air Jordan’s 30th Anniversary, it derives inspiration from this year’s All-Star weekend and the famous host city and Michael Jordan’s birthplace to produce a classic Air Jordan X color.
Comprised of White tumbled leather for its upper, the pristine hue is juxtaposed by Black gracing the tongue, laces and midsole unit which flows towards its outsole patterned with Red accents that showcase a list of Michael Jordan’s major accomplishments.
Finishing details include touches of more Red decorating the insole, an embroidered patch of Jordan’s infamous “45″ jersey number embroidered along the collar, as well as Jordan Brand logos adorning the tongue and heel.
The Air Jordan 10 Retro was created through Jordan Brand’s remastering initiative, a new manufacturing process used to produce retro sneakers that are closer to their originals in terms of quality, look and feel. Among the first retro sneakers to be remastered, the Air Jordan 10 Retro pay homage to the concrete jungle and its historic impact on the Jordan Brand’s enduring legacy.
The Air Jordan 10 “Double Nickel” is slated for a release tomorrow, March 28th. This weekend will be a big one for MJ enthusiasts searching for nostalgia. While there’s an Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG featuring original colors seen in a 1985 release, the major story will undoubtedly be this Air Jordan 10. Featuring a retail release with the ’45’ PE stitching for the first time ever, the shoe harkens back to MJ’s first game back at Madison Square Garden.
To put it into context, Mike had returned to the NBA after his infamous baseball hiatus, but had a little bit of rust to shake off. His first game back against the Pacers was spoiled by a loss and a terrible shooting night (7 for 28). It wasn’t until MJ’s exclamatory 55 on the Knicks in their own building that fans across the league truly considered His Airness had returned. This release serves as a reminder of MJ’s less-than-half season. One in which he bowed out against the Orlando Magic, struggled finding a rhythm (just two games after his legendary Double Nickel Jordan 10 he tallied only 12 points in 35 minutes). He’d return the next year wearing his traditional 23 and the Bulls would go on to win 72 games in dominant fashion as if to proclaim that we all forget about the previous year. And for the most part we all did. But when we’re trained to focus only on the three-peats in the MJ narrative, even his comeback season ingrained a solid memory of Mike’s greatness – The Double Nickel game. You can grab this pair from select retailers like Rise or try your luck early on 2015kd.com.
