Nike Air  Vapormax 2018 Performance Reviews


The new version goes even darker than the original, removing the hint of dark grey Flyknit is releasing this year .

Today we are talking about it .

it is used the Nike Vapormax Flyknit  technology as well . Nike Flyknit technology was inspired by feedback from runners seeking a shoe with the snug (and virtually unnoticed) fit of a sock.Nike introduced Flyknit in February 2012 . There are 5 years !!!the brand has released an infographic chronicling the lightweight sneaker tech’s complete history.

Nike in order to reach the  goal with teams of programmers, engineers and designers to create the technology needed to make the knit upper with static properties for structure and durability. Then the precise placement of support, flexibility and breathability—all in one layer—was refined. The result is a featherweight, formfitting and virtually seamless upper.

that is the history of Klynit technology. The technology has been introduced to the training, running, soccer, basketball and lifestyle releases.

 

For the Off-White Nike Air  Vapormax 2018 , it is  utilized the Klynit which flexibility and breathability .  Id like it this material , especially for the summer  which hot day .

For the cushioning , some people said that it is not good ,incontinuity . But some people said that it is great for innovations.

The Nike Air VaporMax represents a new era in Nike innovation. “It’s changed our whole philosophy on how we design for Air,” says Cushioning Innovation Designer Zachary Elder. With the VaporMax, the designers wanted to truly capture the feeling of ‘running on air.’

yes , we can feel the running on the air even without any midsole or sockliner.It fill the sole with as much Air as possible, but with the VaporMax, the focus is on using the Air efficiently.

Some people said that the chushioning  is incontinuity, yes ,I also thought it will be . but seems it won't .

Carved-out sections of the sole help keep the shoe incredibly flexible and lightweight.

Rubber pods on the sole for durability

Air cushioning provides maximum impact protection from heel to toe. And the most important  is you still can’t feel the air transfer through each chamber.How amazing it is !

Overall , Nike Air  Vapormax  is amazing for innovations, It is worth to buy it on newjordans2018.com

Air Jordan 5 White Cement Performance Review


We’ve seen it with two Air Jordan 4 retros and now we’ll be treated to the surprising return of the Air Jordan 5 White Cement  .

And today we are talking about Jordan 5 .

Air Jordan 5 White Cement featuring the premium Remastered look of a white leather base while Metallic Silver accents flank the midsole to match that reflective 3M tongue.

The clean look is the exact opposite of the more traditional ‘White Cement’,  and it become the popular  one in this year , but the 23 PE stitching remains while an icy outsole will make this pair pristine enough to shine during the warmer months.  and the material is amazing  , it is used the good  leather  which soft .and it will offer up much more durability it is nicely .

for the boxes ,it is nothing special .

For the cushioning , It is  utinized the  Air unit along with a Polyurethane midsole from the heel and forefoot . we can feel the bounce when playing and it is not too much longer time that I feel that .

we can see the  material in side .

we. can see the parts in this picture

Air Jordan 5 Reviews For the traction : it is used the  rubber traction and the herringbone worked perfectly , but I feel that  it will be a little slip in the  out-court . I hope that it can improve  next version.I am afraid that it  will brake when I  am running fast for the midsole .

For  the  supporting : I don't think it  better .There is a molded arch and a thin internal heel counter . we just can feel a little support from the upper . so we don't think it is great . we hope that it  will better for the next version .

Overall , the Air Jordan 5 ,The leather is very soft, but the tongue really thick, the ankle is equally comfortable, but poor ventilation . But the cushioning is great .

Nike Zoom LeBron 15 Performance Review


It was about time I shared my Nike LeBron 15 Performance Review, so here are my thoughts.

15 years is a career in professional sports — unless you are LeBron James. If you haven’t noticed, he is having arguably the best statistical year of his career when most athletes are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

And he is racking up those numbers, for the most part, in the LeBron 15 Sale. The last few years have seen him wear mostly shoes from his Soldier line, so the 15 must be doing something right, right? Well, you know how we do…

Turf spikes for the hardwood — that’s really the best way to describe the pattern, and it is really a shame, because on dusty floor spikes don’t work.

For the first three days of testing I was on a severely unfinished wood floor at 24-hour Fitness (no clear coat at all). On quick lateral moves or curls for jumpers, while planting the lead foot, slides were impossible to stop no matter how much I wiped. Heel strike, toe strike, whatever — it was like the shoe was allergic to stopping.

On clean courts I had no problems at all. Stops were quick, directions were changed immediately, and all was right in the world. Still nowhere near the best, or even great, but it was good enough.

As for durability outdoors — I wouldn’t. Once the peaks wear off outdoors, the rubber will be quick to go, and then the Zoom Air unit will wear with the quickness. Better leave these for the indoor ball on clean courts.

Best. Zoom. Ever. I know I said that last year about the KD9 (I think), and a few years ago about Unlocked Zoom in the Air Jordan 28, but this is the stuff you dream about (what, you don’t dream about shoes and basketball? Just me?).

The huge Zoom units, blended with the Max Zoom in the heel, provide impact protection beyond anything not made of little white pebbles that still bounces back to provide responsiveness underfoot. The segmented units allow for a flex never felt in a 360° Zoom unit (or Air Max for that matter) and let the shoe roll underfoot — no stiffness here.

I was a little worried about the height of the midsole, and did actually feel the Zoom compress along the edges on hard drives and cuts to the rim, but a complete rollover never occurred, and again, all was good.

For a bigger player that puts some serious impact on his or her feet, this is almost a perfect setup. Smaller players who are lighter and shiftier, well, there is always the Kyrie or Curry line. If you are needing some intense impact protection because of age or injury, the LeBron 15 Black Gold will have your knees feeling, well, not so damaged.

Otherwise known as a really thick Flyknit, Battleknit sounds better — especially when dealing with an athlete like LeBron. The comfort is still there, the flexibility is freaking awesome, and the durability, so far, seems to be way better than past builds.

The thicker weave seen above is stronger and tighter in areas needing containment while over the foot there is more elasticity for better comfort and fit. This, seriously, is the best knit Nike has put on a basketball shoe.

Flywire cables run the lacing system and can be felt pulling the shoe around your foot. The pull tabs are leather and add a perfect contrast of old and new to the LeBron 15’s appearance.

Debate and discussion time. Some have said half size down because the knit stretches. Some have said half size up because the shoe fits snug. I say stay true to size because it just feels better to me.

The ankle area is stretchy and should accommodate even the widest of feet, and once inside, the padding from the Battleknit wraps perfectly around your foot without feeling restrictive. Because of the knit, all of the little differences in foot shape and bone structure are covered because the knit fills in the gaps. The heel stays locked in using the Flywire lacing. Midfoot and forefoot fit is rightonthefoot, but because of the knit there is no discomfort.

Length, for me, was perfect. In a 10.5, there was about an index finger width between my big toe and the end of the shoe. This fits right along with most other shoes I play in, including the Kyrie 4, Curry 4, and Jordan Zer0.1. This lets my feet have enough room to spread and push off on drives, and at the end of the day my feet just feel better.

It’s no secret LeBron needs support — dude is 6’8″ and around 265 pounds. He puts some serious torque on a shoe. A few years ago, Nike tried to keep up with him by adding Posite to the uppers, giving us the LeBron 11 through the 13, but if you remember, those didn’t stay on his feet very long (he went to the Soldier model more often than not).

What did the Soldier lack that the signature shoes did? Stiff uppers and Foamposite. The designers seemed to listen last year, so the LeBron 14 had a mesh upper and Flywire lacing. The LeBron 15 takes that thinking farther, and while the lateral support isn’t as contained as the LeBron 12, my foot never slid off the footbed.

Just trying on in the store, there was no way in my mind this shoe would be able hold on hard cuts. On court, the Battleknit held me down, but there was still a feeling of being uncontained that never had me feeling confident. The shoe still played great, but in my mind I kept thinking bad thoughts.

Another area that contributed to my evil inner thoughts was the cushioning. The Max Zoom sits extremely high and gives the shoe a tippy feeling. On two or three drives I did feel the edges of the Zoom buckle on lateral plants and even though the shoe didn’t roll, there was a sense of the midsole angling over and slowing me down. Again, I never completely rolled over, but the times I felt the movement it was a little scary.

Transition is serious, especially for a shoe and player of this size. The LeBron 15 looks huge on foot and it feels like a boot. The segmented Zoom and flexible midsole give the shoe a smooth feel in running and change of direction. The upper, again, is such a sock-like fit that there is no stiffness anywhere.

This may be the best playing LeBron shoe ever. Some will argue that the LeBron 10 is, and it was a classic, but the midsole was too stiff for a smooth transition because it was clunky.

The upper of the LeBron 15 and the comfort of Battleknit give it an obvious edge over the Posite series, and the Max Zoom is still the best blend of bounce and impact protection Nike has in its cushioning stable.

If you are looking for the absolute best Nike cushioning in basketball shoes that bleeds technology, the LeBron 15 is your ride. If you need a low-riding midsole with biting traction and a strait-jacket fit, you may want to skip this LeBron.

Nike Hyperdunk 2017 Mid Performance Reviews


The Nike Hyperdunk 2017 is the ninth Nike Hyperdunk model. It is a high-performance basketball shoe that features a slip-on construction with a mix of either Flyknit or mesh textile over REACT foam cushioning.

Currently,Hyperudnk 2017 BLK EP is released

For the box , it is normal as usually

For the material : Nike Hyperdunk 2017 features with mesh material which  lightweight, breathable.Nike has highlighted this by using contrasting colors for the base layer, which you can see here in black. on one hand, it reinforces the mesh upper and provides greater durability. On the other hand, it limits the amount of airflow that mesh traditionally brings. that is great anyway .

For the cushioning : While React may be Nike’s most resilient foam cushion as last version . though it is just so so for the cushioning . hope that it is will be better in next version .

As my experience with React, There will be no loss in mobility or a feeling of sinking into mushy cushion.And the court feeling is not good . I would not  prefer this type of feeling. If you prefer a springy cushion then there are plenty of options that will give you that feeling,such as the Jordan series of shoes . React just isn’t the best option for you .

here are the lacy system picture , It is great that can lockdown the feet very well

For the supporting : Actuallly the supporting is not too bad . A TPU torsional plate are all in place and all of piece do their jobs and keep your foot on the footbed, ensuring you aren’t straining your foot. that is great for this one .the most important is  Hyperdunk 2017 Reviews and they offer a wide stable platform without feeling clunky or restrictive.  so maybe it is the reason why I choose it .

For the traction : Nike Hyperdunk 2017 Mid Black Red The rubber traction just so so ,  and that court was so bad that everyone in the gym was slipping. but the grip is great in the clean court .

Overall ,  materials, fit, and support are all standout features. However, the traction just so so that can not meet my required .  And Nike really needs to work on React cushion or ditch the foam entirely.what do you think ?

nike kyrie s1 hybrid performance review

nike kyrie s1 hybrid performance review

Nike mashed Kyrie Irving’s first three shoes together to create the S1 Hybrid and we’ve got the performance review.
Traction – It isn’t often that we get the opportunity to go back and test a shoe years after its release, but that’s what it felt like I was doing with the Nike Kyrie S1 Hybrid.

The shoe features the Kyrie 1’s tooling so traction is identical. However, my experience was not. I remember the original Kyrie 1 having pretty good grip on-court — a few wipes here and there, but nothing crazy.

I’m not sure if the floors I play on are dirtier now than they’ve ever been but the traction this time around was pretty slippery more often than not. When I’d slip, I would eventually stop, allowing me to continue moving in whichever direction. But I felt I was skidding into my direction change rather than just changing direction without a second thought. Keeping the soles on the S1 Hybrid clean and debris free will be a necessary habit during your time on the floor.

The traction wasn’t deal breaker bad, but it definitely made me appreciate what I experienced in the Kyrie 2, 3, and 4.

Cushion – Like the traction, my experience the second time around wavers a bit from my first.

The rectangle forefoot Zoom Air and Phylon midsole combination is no different than it was on the Kyrie 1, but I didn’t mind this setup this time around. While the cushion isn’t mind blowing or spectacular, it’s good enough and, at the least, features Zoom Air in the forefoot where it benefits me the most.

It’s definitely better than what I experienced in the Kyrie 2 and 3, but playing in the Kyrie 1s tooling once again only reinforced my love for the Kyrie 4’s Cushlon and heel Zoom Air combination.

Materials – When I initially had the shoe in-hand I liked the front half of the materials. However, the rear canvas wasn’t quite the material that I enjoyed from the rear of the Nike Kyrie 2. However, after breaking in the S1 Hybrid I wound up really enjoying how everything felt and played together.

The mesh up front was just as light and flexible as it was on the Kyrie 3, and Nike kept my favorite part of the setup: the little flex zone featuring the stretch mesh material.

Fuse is used sparingly (thankfully) at the toe and it does its job of protecting the softer mesh that resides beneath it. Meanwhile, the stiff-to-start canvas at the rear broke in to the point where it retained its rigidity for support/containment but felt like it had molded to my foot like a mesh would.

The strap worked well and ensured my heel was locked into place, even though I feel the shoe would have been fine had the brand left that feature off the shoe entirely.

Fit – The shoe fits true to size, but like every Kyrie in the past, it is a bit narrow. If you’re a wide footer then going up 1/2 size may be necessary.

The overall fit and lockdown are a perfect blend between the Kyrie 2 and 3. I loved the way the Kyrie 3 felt and fit whereas I wasn’t as happy with the midfoot and forefoot section of the Kyrie 2 due to the stiff plastic fuse upper — but the rear of the Kyrie 2 felt awesome.

By taking the forefoot of the Kyrie 3, Nike was able to add some much needed flexibility to the forefoot while still retaining the heel lockdown from the Kyrie 2. This is an awesome setup and I really enjoyed how well the S1 Hybrid fit my foot.

Support – Nothing special, but the Kyrie S1 Hybrid What The has everything you need. The midfoot torsional shank plate is housed within the midsole while the heel offers a very rigid external heel counter that does a fantastic job of keeping your heel on the footbed.

The shoe’s tooling is flat which helps promote stability, however, I would have liked the forefoot to be slightly wider than it currently is. This is something that wouldn’t be possible since Nike Basketball Shoes took the tooling from the Kyrie 1 and just placed it on this model, but if there were something I’d have changed that would have been it.

Overall – I was surprised with how much I enjoyed the shoe on-court — besides for the traction. Traction was pretty spotty most nights, something I wasn’t expecting since I enjoyed the Kyrie 1, but the rest of the shoe was very solid. If you loved the Kyrie 1 then I have a feeling you’ll love these as well.

The fit and lockdown are an upgrade in comparison — to the Kyrie 1 — while borrowing the same tooling. I still feel the Nike Kyrie 4 is the most well rounded of the Kyrie models, but the S1 Hybrid is a close second. It offers forefoot cushion and an optimal fit to get you through games or hours of pick-up hoop sessions at your local gym.
Is the S1 Hybrid worth going out of your way to buy for on-court use? No. But if you like how the shoe looks and wound up buying a pair to play in then you should be satisfied for the most part.

Nike Kyrie 4 "Confetti" Pefromance Reviews

Nike Kyrie 4 "Confetti" Pefromance Reviews

Now the  Nike Kyrie 4 "Confetti" the colorful pair was released today .  and the Christmas holiday is coming , a lot of people  would like to buy this one as the gift . and now that Kyrie Irving has said goodbye to his third sneaker, so maybe this one is the last sneakers this year .

I was so luck that got one .

Today we are talking about it .

For the box ,It is new and nice with the red color.

As the confetti from the postgame celebration as a constant reminder of what it took to get to the Finals, and how it felt to fall short of the goal.Kyrie 4 “Confetti” honors Kyrie’s win-or-learn mentality and the memento that reminds him of the incredible experience he can learn from. Irving scores 19 in the second half. A 27-foot straightaway three late in the fourth brings his overall tally to 32, effectively ices the contest and prompts an exuberant, face guard-removing celebration.

The designer--Nethongkome who was born in Thailand and moved to Miami at age 10, he spends a lot of time watching  Irving and studying , working on a variety of basketball projects, Nethongkome was given the nod to take the helm of Irving’s signature line this time .  Irving has very unique and specific performance demands. So  Nethongkome according the  demands of Irving to design the new sneakers .

For the material :Nike Kyrie 4 "Confetti" Reviews used  a mix of the old and new material. Engineered mesh is featured at the forefoot and that provides you with a lightweight material that requires hardly any break-in time. also Nike Kyrie 4 "Confetti" utilized the  Nylon which glued to the underside which restricts all of the air flow, but in turn it strengthens the material.

We have to say this material is great and meet the required of Irving .Meanwhile, the heel panel is a suede material  while not premium material,it  doesn’t feel cheap at all.  for the ventilation , it is also amazing , I can feel the air through the shoes , I meant it will be good for summer  hot day .

For the cushioning : the new design of  KYRIE 4, which are based on Irving’s desire to improve underfoot cushioning that solved with the application of Cushlon midsole Zoom Air heel unit. in order to improve the grip , kyrie 4  make the the outsole’s zig-zag flex grove to make the irving quicker on the corner. The cushion come back  that I’ve been waiting on for a very long time. Not only is Cushlon used, but it makes up the entire midsole,the zig-zag flex grove is amazing ,also it  looks  nice . The Kyrie 3 has no cushion aside from the heel Zoom Air unit,so this time , the kyrie 4  bought the cushioning back , it is the best new for us , usually the Cushlon is implemented with a Phylon carrier to the softer, but for Kyrie ,  it is also can provide the response  .

The midsole is actually  thin at the forefoot ,and  the bounce-back that Cushlon usually offers is minimized. I felt the  Bounce,such as the Adidas , this setup proved to be a well balanced offering of cushioning and court feel. I like it very much .the court feeling is amazing .

For the supporting : The zig-zag flex grove like the teeth, The teeth wrap up and around the forefoot to stabilize the Cushlon a bit while also slightly caging the forefoot. it is also offer the supporting for  Kyrie 4 , though the supporting just so so , but seems it doesnt matter .

Kyrie 4 has an internal heel counter at the rear. But it isn’t quite as strong as TPU or carbon fiber which can offer the great supporting  , the midsole up front is wide and sits low,so the sculpted also acts as like an outrigger, which is a huge bonus.maybe someone  dont like this design that have not enough supporting

For the traction : Kyrie 4  is comprised of multi-directional herringbone which aggressive  traditional and  improve  the grip .

this type of rubber worked really well on a variety of courts and conditions. Although the outsoles started off a bit slick the first and I felt it will be brake  up sometime . Effectively decoupling the sole, this feature enhances traction and response from side to side, forming more seamless transitions. Once again, the outsole wraps up and around the foot, this time forming a fanged sidewall that emphasizes that the shoe was built for speed.

Overall , the amazing design of idea , it is look nice colorway ,for the fitting ,it is snug but true to size. Wide footers may want to consider going up 1/2 size.then the  cushioning is also great . dont miss it  ,it is the best gift  for the new Jordans 2018 .

Please stay tuned our website , there are more the info .

Today we are talking about it .

for the box , it is nice , the blue doorway with jumpers logo .

there is the details of side

we can see the THE AIR JORDAN 11 logo

The iconic pairing of navy and university blue visualizes the “Win Like ’82” idea, which honors Jordan’s NCAA title-winning shot in the 1982 Championship Game. In an effort to channel his success in college, Jordan superstitiously wore his UNC shorts underneath his Bulls shorts throughout his career.

For the material : It featuring a University Blue Jumpman and Midnight Navy patent leather that ties back to his alternate practice short colorway.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 which open mesh in place of the ballistic nylon mesh and it performed pretty much on par with the original and previous Retro versions.

there are the details of the shoes

the materials performed pretty much on par with the original and previous Retro versions.

for the lace system, it is also great ,and there is a logo other tongue

there is the logo with details inside

For the traction : the traction really nice whichsolid with all things considered.and the clear sections are nice and sticky straight out the box, which is good and bad depending on court conditions.

for the supporting : The Carbon Fiber adds a lot of support along the entire base of the foot, so the supporting is great .and the overall fit provides you with the extra reassurance you’d want or need in the court

there are the picture of women size and men size

it is nice for two size .

for the cushioning : lightweight Phylon and full length Air unit in place , so the cushioning ing is amazing . the shoes still leaps and bounds better than previous Air Jordan models. Especially for the Impact absorption is available and consistent throughout while still maintaining decent court feel in the forefoot.the court feeling is geat ,for me , I like it very much

the logo is nice with blue

overall : The Air Jordan 11 Win Like 82 is a straight beast on-court. They look good, feel good and they play well on top of that. don't miss it

Nike Kyrie 4 performance reviews

Nike Kyrie 4 performance reviews

Traction on the Kyrie 4 is comprised of multi-directional herringbone — a favorite of mine. I love when traction patterns are aggressive yet traditional; this one mixes a little bit of the old with a little bit of the new.

This type of coverage worked really well on a variety of courts and conditions. Although the outsoles started off a bit slick the first couple of nights — I think there’s some residue on the soles to start — they consistently got better with each wear. That made wiping the outsoles something that wasn’t required very often.

I still feel that the the past two Kyrie models offered a bit more bite than the Kyrie 4, but I don’t think that that’s a bad thing. This traction pattern worked really nicely without feeling like you could break your own ankles at a moment’s notice.

Cushion is the best it’s ever been in any Kyrie model with the Kyrie 4.

The heel still features a Zoom Air unit, that I felt was unnecessary for the most part as I tend to stay off my heels. However, if you happen to use your heel then coverage from the Zoom unit is there.

What I loved about the shoe is that the design team brought Cushlon back into the fold — something that I’ve been waiting on for a very long time. Not only is Cushlon used, but it makes up the entire midsole. Usually Cushlon is implemented with a Phylon carrier to the softer/bouncier foam mixture, but not this time around.

The midsole is still on the thin side (at the forefoot) so the bounce-back that Cushlon usually offers is minimized, but much like adidas’ Bounce, this setup proved to be a well balanced offering of cushioning and court feel.

If Cushlon is used on the Kyrie line from here on out then the line may go from being one of my least anticipated models of the year to one of my most anticipated models.

Like the outsole, the materials along the upper are a mix of the old and new. Engineered mesh is featured at the forefoot and that provides you with a lightweight material that requires hardly any break-in time. Nylon is glued to the underside which restricts all of the air flow, but in turn it strengthens the material.

Meanwhile, the heel panel is a suede material that, while not premium, doesn’t feel cheap at all. In fact, it only makes me scratch my head at the materials used on the Kobe AD Mid even more than I already had. For $120, the Kyrie 4 feels like it could’ve been priced at the Kobe AD Mid’s $150 (I’m glad it wasn’t though).

Prices on these shoes are still ridiculous even with basketball market sales dropping over the past couple of years. Having some of the best performers of the year being priced under $150 is great for consumers and a head scratching moment for brands because some of the $150 and up models are not as well rounded.

I suppose it can be compared a bit to the movie industry. Films with smaller budgets tend to have greater impact and story telling even though they have to stretch a limited budget. That forces creatives to be, well, creative. Nowadays, the films with massive budgets often are lackluster and filled with eye candy but not much payoff.

Durability of the rear panel has been great thus far and the durability of the mesh should be okay with the nylon glued to it. Without it I think it’d likely rip over time time as it had on the Kobe 8 after extensive use.

The shoe fits snug but true to size. Wide footers may want to consider going up 1/2 size. If you’ve worn any of the past Kyrie models, I’d highly recommend you stick with the same size you wore comfortably in those because they feel like they’re all built on the same last.

Lockdown was solid up and down. The lacing is traditional so there’s little room for error there. As stated above, the forefoot is snug, which is something I personally enjoy. I always felt secure in the shoe and never felt my foot sliding around at any time — much like my experiences in the Kyrie 1-3.

Support on the Kyrie 4 was something I had no issues with. The midsole doesn’t cradle you in the way that I personally prefer (like a Dame 4 or Curry 4) but the rubber outsole’s exaggerated “teeth” offer a similar feel. The teeth wrap up and around the forefoot to stabilize the Cushlon a bit while also slightly caging the forefoot.

You can’t see it, but the Kyrie 4 has an internal heel counter at the rear. It isn’t quite as strong as something like external TPU or carbon fiber, but it more than gets the job done and ensures your heel remains atop the footbed without sliding over.

There isn’t a traditional outrigger in place, but the midsole up front is wide and sits low. The way it’s sculpted also acts as like an outrigger, which is a huge bonus.

Overall, the Nike Kyrie 4 is Nike’s best performer this year. Its very well-rounded on all fronts in a way that makes the Kyrie 4 more like a nike lebron 15. There’s just enough cushion for most, solid traction, fantastic fit and adequate support — and all of comes at a “team” friendly price point of $120.

I’m not a huge fan of the Kyrie line overall but if this is the direction Nike plans on going with the line then may change. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved aspects of the past models, especially the traction, but the brick-like Phylon has been anything but forgiving. Even the Curry 4’s foam midsole is more forgiving than the Phylon used on past Kyries, so the return of Cushlon was a great choice to bring a bit more balance to the low profile tooling.

I don’t believe I’ve said this all year, because it hadn’t been deserved, but great job Nike Basketball. This is the kind of shoe that I’ve been waiting for all year.

The Under Armour Curry 4 Low has landed and we’ve put it through its paces.

Herringbone is missing from the Curry line for the very first time, and while we love our herringbone, it wasn’t actually missed. The spiral pattern used offers multi-directional coverage for any move performed at any time. Linear coverage is fantastic and lateral coverage is handled very well too.

The tackiness of the rubber compound used (on translucent outsole options) attracts dust like a magnet. Wiping will be very necessary if you play on a poorly maintained court, but when you’re not wiping you’ll still be able to stick until you have the time to clear things out.

(One of the courts I play on feels slick even after its been cleaned — it likely needs to be refinished — and the Curry 4 Low was still able to hold its own there.)

With the translucent rubber playing so well on some terrible courts it makes me wonder how much more awesome solid rubber versions of the outsole will perform. If you aren’t using herringbone, use this, because this was awesome.

Tech specs for the air jordan 11 cny  and Curry 4 Low have been vague. All that we have been told is that UA is incorporating a proprietary foam compound for responsiveness underfoot. Whether or not this foam is Charged, a new form of Micro G, or something else entirely is still up in the air.

However, I do know how the cushion felt underfoot and the best word I can use to describe it is minimal. Not quite Kyrie minimal, but minimal enough to allow for court feel and some minor impact protection.

You can always swap out the insole for some additional coverage (I was fine with the stock insole) but this isn’t the shoe for people that need cushioning. Much like the Curry models of the past, these are all about control, court feel, and stability. If those are attributes you require out of your shoes then you’re going to love how these play. Again, if you’re looking for something with a ton of cushion then these simply weren’t meant for you.

What I like most about the midsole tooling used on the Curry 4 Low is that it offers a minimal setup and the shoe owns it. The Curry 3 was super firm and thick for no reason. You rode high off the floor without the benefit of having a well-cushioned ride. That wound up making the 3 feel heavy and clunky underfoot. It was stable, but you can achieve greater stability by bringing yourself down to the floor; that will make you feel lighter on your feet and quicker.

This was not the case with the Curry 4 Low because what you see is what you get. I feel the perfect setup for these would have been this exact midsole setup with the addition of a Micro G insole; luckily, I still have a few of those stashed away from older UA models. That combination gives you a little more feedback from the foam insole while retaining all of the attributes the Curry 4 Low Red For Sale

The materials are the only real change between the Curry 4 Low and high. The high featured a knit lacing area and collar while the rest of the shoe was welded to a synthetic. This time around we have two components to the upper: the inner structure and the outer layers.

Some may be happy to know that one of the outer layers is a true knit that is very stretchy and form fitting. A synthetic overlay is in place over the knit for the second layer which is overlayed at the toe and portions of the midfoot. However, this synthetic is very thin and more of a skin layer used to protect the knit and prevent the upper from stretching too much.

Under the knit is the shoe itself. To my surprise, there’s nearly half of a shoe under there which is something I found interesting. From the lacing all the way to the collar is a fuse-like material with mesh glued on top of it. That’s really what’s doing all the heavy lifting in terms of containing the foot (along with the midsole tooling) while the outer knit layer is mostly there for comfort and to ensure the shoe looks like a shoe.

All of these components worked well with one another and have been fairly durable so far. Although, they show signs of wear and tear almost instantly.

The Curry 4 Low runs very snug. It’s high top counterpart ran true to size, but the interior featured no padding. The Low is a bit different and has an ankle pillow in the rear. This pillow is a bit dense and pushes the foot up enough to make you wonder if you bought the right size.

Luckily, the Curry 4 Low breaks in rather quickly but will remain snug at all times. Given how soft some of the upper is, along with it being generously low cut, the Curry 4 Low ensures your foot and the shoe are practically one and the same.

However, I do believe there will be many that will feel the need to go up 1/2 size. If you’re wearing the shoe casually then that what I would do. For those wishing to play in them, let me know in the comments if you end up going up 1/2 size. Being that the Curry 4 Low fits as tight as it does I’m very curious to know how the shoe fits different people.

Despite being a minimal shoe, and an extremely low-cut low top on top of that, the support is solid. The overall support doesn’t rely heavily on the upper, other than the fit, but more so on the way everything works together. The way your foot rests inside the shoe, the way the midsole is sculpted in the rear and lateral forefoot — all of it works very well together and everything feels very anatomical correct.

If I were to enhance anything it would have been the internal heel counter. I would have liked it to be a little bigger and cover more area. The way it’s implemented currently wasn’t a deal breaker because I love playing in the shoe, but it’s the one thing I feel could have been improved upon.

Otherwise, the way the outsole sits on the floor, moves with the upper, and moves with the wearer’s foot feels effortless.

The Under Armour Curry 4 Low is a very good performance model, much like its high top counterpart. I’d normally say how much I prefer the low top version of *insert shoe name here* but this time around I actually prefer the high top.

The materials are something I feel should have been featured on the high top, but the fit is something that I found to be a bit more comfortable in the original version of the shoe. This is mainly due to the heel pillow. My right shoe broke in nicely but the left shoe hasn’t quite given me the same experience.

If you like your newjordans2018.com  to be snug, and I mean really snug, then you’ll probably have nothing but love for the Curry 4 Low. This is great traction and stability for low-to-the-ground guards that prefers to be quick on their feet.
