2017 hot nike paul george pg 1 performance test

Being only the 21st basketball athlete that Nike has awarded a signature model means there are big shoes to fill, and Paul George has his work cut out for him. Let’s see if the Nike PG 1 can hold its own…

 

Traction – The solid rubber outsole and traction worked above average; the diamond-gridded nodules held their ground on most conditions. That isn’t to say I didn’t have some minor slippage when the pattern picks up big chunks of dust, but one or two wipes and you’re back at it without skipping a beat.

The highlighted area showcases the location of the forefoot Zoom Air unit (the translucent rubber actually showed the Zoom Air section) — it’s something simple, but it’s the little things that matter, especially for us at newjordans2018.com. I recommend sticking to the solid rubber outsole for traction consistency.

For those considering using this shoe for outdoors, the durability might not last as long due to the thin nodules.

Cushion – The cushion is bottom-loaded forefoot Zoom Air Unit for the PG 1. The Phylon midsole used here is actually softer than most Nike basketball shoes I’ve tested, and the setup was a very responsive low-to-the-ground ride.

You don’t feel the forefoot Zoom unit much, especially for those that are expecting bounce-back, but it gets the job done. For a big man like myself, I do prefer more cushioning — top-loaded Zoom Air in the forefoot and heel, full-length Zoom, or double-stacked Zoom Air units — but I didn’t have a problem with these. I was surprised, especially coming from a recent knee injury. to see how supple the Phylon midsole felt. Forefoot Zoom, soft Phylon midsole, responsive court feel — that combination is definitely a setup worth taking a second look at.

Materials –  Drum roll please?! The materials here are absolutely the star of the show. Nubuck midfoot to heel, mesh material transition with fuse overlays on high wear areas from midfoot to toebox, solid rubber traction, footbed strap that is locked down with Flywire, and a bootie construction — superb!

The execution and design was clearly well thought out. There’s a bit of an ol’ school vibe from using good ol’ materials that work on a modern shoe. The materials used on this shoe were incredibly functional; they didn’t add bulk or additional weight to the shoe. Overall, the materials used here are very well implemented and my favorite aspect of the shoe.

Fit – Fit was like a glove, a size too small. The shoe is hella narrow and fits super snug. I lucked on getting a half a size up (because it’s damn near impossible to find a size 13.5). I tried on both my regular size 13 and a size 14. For the size 13, my foot went in, with somewhat semi-violent interaction and mild blood circulation slowly cutting off…then, there was numbness. The size 14 fit my foot fine, with minor struggle getting into the shoe, but there was too much room in the front. So I went on a mission to see if 13.5 was available, a true rarity.

This shoe is specifically catered to the narrow-footed, quick on their feet, shifty players. Even 1/2 size up, the PG1 required some break-in time due to the snugness. After a game or two, the shoe fit like a glove and contoured to my feet exceptionally well. It’s still a concern that not all shoes are created for all athletes alike.

Support – We’re all thrown the idea that low-top shows have less support — which I think a lot of bulls***. Although the shoe does fit snug and requires minor break-in time, the nike pg 1 ferocity for sale has the combined support areas placed strategically. The midsole cups your feet, the foot sits well on the footbed, and the bootie construction keeps your feet locked. Additionally, the heel (including the extra padding) wraps around the back of your foot and heel quite well, making sure you’re locked in.

The midsole and outsole are slightly rounded-out but I never felt any instability. The PG1 acts as an extension of your feet without becoming a nuisance. Wonderful lockdown, solid traction, responsive ride — I’d say it’s pretty supportive, especially for a first signature model that is a low-top.

Overall – The PG1 is a wonderful shoe to play in, as long as you don’t have wide feet and you can get your foot into the shoe. For a first signature model and it’s $110 price point, I think the shoe is fantastic.

If you want a nice looking shoe that is responsive on-court with superb containment, this shoe is the beez neez! I suggest going with the solid rubber outsole. If this shoe is an indication of what’s to come from the Swoosh, I’m excited. The PG1 is from the same designer as the Ambassador 9, a hit, so I’ll have to hold him (and Nike basketball shoes ) to slightly higher standards and expectations. I’m already anticipating the PG2 — hopefully, it’s wide-foot friendly or releases in size 13.5) — but we’ll just have to wait and see.

Three Style Shoes on Nike LeBron 15 at 2018 hot sale

Coming soon is the Nike LeBron 15 which James will wear during the 2017-18 NBA Season. The debut of LeBron James’ 15th signature shoe will take place during October.

ecently LeBron James was seen wearing the new Cleveland Cavaliers Nike Uniforms but in the caption he wrote “Savage Season 15”. This does mark James’ 15th season in the NBA, but could also be the Nike LeBron 15.

“This is my favorite shoe to date” says James. “The performance benefits and sophisticated look make this shoe a force on and off the court.”

The shoe’s key innovations include a next-generation Nike Flyknit Battle construction that provides strategic stretch, a locked-in fit and durability. Underfoot is a fully articulated cushioning system that combines Max Air and Zoom Air units, while a full-bootie construction offers a secure, one-to-one fit.

“The number-one thing people should know about the LEBRON 15 is that this new Nike Flyknit is something that’s never been done in a performance shoe,” notes James. “It looks great, too. Since Jason and I started working on the LeBron 7, we have always talked about how we not only want to have the top, top, top notch in performance, we want style, as well. We have a desire to create shoes that makes all people feel good when they put it on.”

Jordan True Flight Performance Review

As one of the shoes on our list of Sneakers We’re Looking Forward to in 2009 and style cues from the Jordan 7 and the addition of full length Zoom Air, I was anxious to get the jordan 6 millennial pink for sale on the court.The True Flight has only been seen on the feet of Josh Howard this season in our Kicks On Court series, but the silhouette and performance upgrades, it’s surprising. We did recently see a couple new PE Colorwaysthough, so more on court action should be on its way.

My first impression lacing these kicks up, is pure comfort. The Huarache-like inner sock liner and Zoom Air feels good, no questions about it. The ankle area above the sock liner does not have padding which is the only thing about the shoe I could see as a possible downside thus far.

Click Here to see how the Jordan True Flight scored in our review.

The shoes really didn’t need any break in time, with the exception of the ankle area, which I would attribute to that lack of padding. Noticing that when Josh Howard plays in them, his ankles are wrapped (I do not, though I did play in some high socks ala Walt “The Wizard” Williams for testing), I imagine wrapping your ankles would erase any of the negative aspects I found with the ankle area.

The traction on the True Flight’s is phenomenal, I didn’t pay attention to these type of things back when I played in the Air Jordan 32’s but I can only imagine that the herringbone traction and seemingly flatter outsole of the True Flight’s is light years ahead of its OG inspiration.

The cushioning is top notch as well, only a slightly noticeable difference between the heel area and the forefoot. The lack of padding in the ankle area however does keep you from being able to cut as easily as it should. For instance, when you move left you feel that the inside of the ankle does not give, therefore causing some discomfort, and slowing the reaction time of both the shoe, and yourself ever so slightly.

Durability of the jordan 11 win link 96’s should be excellent, as I got the chance to play in them quite a bit, both inside and outside and they show very little signs of wear on the sole or even creasing in the toebox area. Even with the nubuck upper of the colorway I hooped in the breathability is good on these kicks, thanks to the ventilation near the ankle and the mesh of the Huarache-like sock liner.

Overall these are excellent kicks, I’d suggest them for 3-4 type of player over a guard simply because most guards are not going to be wrapping their ankles heavily, that’s more of an “in the paint” type of protection at newjordans2018.com .

The Air Jordan 11 ‘Win Like’ Celebrate MJ’s Championships

These Air Jordan 11s Celebrate Michael Jordan’s Championships . An official look at the ‘Win Like 82′ and ‘Win Like 96′ collections.

Jordan Brand will double-down on the holiday tradition of releasing Air Jordan 11s this year by bringing out two new colorways of the heralded sneaker. First is the Air Jordan 11 “Win Like ’82” ($220) in navy releasing on Nov. 11, and then the Air Jordan 11 “Win Like Chicago ’96” ($220) in red releasing on Dec. 9.

Jordan Brand has unveiled one of its upcoming Air Jordan 11s for the holiday season and it celebrates the 30th season of the Chicago Bulls.

The “Win Like ’82” pair is a reference to Michael Jordan’s UNC alma mater and, more specifically, the championship he won there in 1982. While such sneakers usually feature a baby blue, the midnight navy shade here points to Jordan’s alternate practice shorts from his college days, which were a deeper shade.

The “Win Like ’96” pair is inspired by Jordan’s  Chicago Bulls tenure and that team’s 1996 championship.

Formerly the most winningest season on record, the ’96 Bulls team was ferocious. In the offseason the team acquired Dennis Rodman, and under the leadership of Phil Jackson and Michael Jordan, the Bulls proceeded to go 72-10 for the season.

Now, Jordan Brand is once again celebrating that legacy with the Air Jordan 11s ‘Win Like ’96’. This sneaker flaunts premium patent leather in brilliant red, an icy translucent outsole, and black accents.

Rumored for a December 9 release, according to J23App, Jordan Brand has not officially announced a release date or price for the silhouette.

Both of these sneakers will come in full-family sizes, as is customary for Air Jordan 11s at newjordans2018.com .

Air Jordan 10(X) Retro Performance Review

Traction – The overall traction has been very solid. From a visual perspective you would already assume that the traction would be more than capable of keeping up with your movements from a front to back standpoint. What is clear after you begin to trust the surface is that your jab steps, jump stops along with your crosses, quick cuts and abrupt stops are great as well. No matter the court condition, the Air Jordan 10 can keep up with the best of them.

Cushion – We finally have something a bit more ‘modern’ with the Phylon midsole but even then its not as soft as some of the newer renditions of the foam nor is it as responsive as the newer foams that have been introduced to us over the last few years. However, the cushion is more than capable and 100% ready to take care of you during games. While you wont receive that step-in comfort you may find in something with an Ortholite insole – an easy fix if you wanted to swap insoles – but the full length Air unit along with the Phylon midsole do their job and they do it very well. Heel to toe transition is extremely smooth and you don’t feel high off the ground so court feel isn’t compromised.

Material – I personally love everything about the materials… it brings me back to when you got what you paid for. I’m not saying that you are getting ripped off today by purchasing synthetic based sneakers – since they will last longer – but there is just something about wearing a handcrafted sneaker made with organic materials that makes you feel as if you just laced up a luxury item onto your feet.

Fit – The fit is fantastic and one of the highlights of the Jordan release date 2018 . When you have leather based shoes, you typically have a break-in period to adjust to. That wasn’t really the case as the break-in time for these are easy and painless. I was expecting for the overall shoe to lose its shape after some time – a typical issue with leather sneakers – but that never happened. Those bungee bands place down the tongue keeps the fit snug and secure from beginning to end… a really nice feature and its also something I really enjoyed on the Air Penny III.

Ventilation – The tongue is mesh but other than that there really isn’t any ventilation. This will bring their overall score down but that should only really effect your decision to wear these on-court if that particular attribute is a high priority for your needs.

Support – The support is minimal but fairly effective. While the leather overlays didn’t provide much of any support, the midsole did which made up for it. There is a molded arch which is nice for arch support but this is the first time within the Air Jordan Project where I felt my arch over flexing. It didn’t happen often and when it happened it was only with my right foot but it does make you appreciate the shank plate no matter what material its made of.

Overall – The Air Jordan 10 is a great on-court option. Its no surprise why you still see them on basketball courts today… they are just that good of a shoe. They have almost everything a hooper would need.

Despite claims from consumers claiming the ‘quality’ is lacking, the Air Jordan Retro has been one of the best releases this year in terms of materials and craftsmanship. For the few who may have bought a pair to wear with their Nike Elite socks on-court and not on the sidewalk… they’re on-court ready fresh out the box in the newjordans2018.com .

Better Air Jordan 11 – “Concord” or “Bred”

With the Air Jordan 11 Retro Concord rumored to release during the 2018 holiday season, we decided to take a look back at two of Jordan Brand’s most iconic releases.

Some consider the Air Jordan 11 Concord 2018 for sale to be the most popular basketball shoe of all time. Michael Jordan wore them during his path to a fourth NBA Championship with the Chicago Bulls.

A shoe that every collector should have is the “Bred” Air Jordan 11. Debuted during the 1996 NBA Playoffs that would route MJ to another championship and NBA Finals MVP. One of the best features to this release was its Red translucent outsole.

the Air Jordan 11 ‘Bred’. Here is a fresh new look at the Holiday release that leaves nothing behind from their OG drop. The Black mesh compliments the patent leather with a White midsole that separates its self from the Red soles.

Jordan Brand will be returning another all-time favorite, the Air Jordan 11 Concord for the holiday 2018 season. Much like the “Space Jam” release, you can expect a remastered version with a higher-cut patent leather build.

No word on if kd 10 release will include “45” or “23” on the heels. But all other details like a White mesh upper, Black patent leather and Dark Concord accents will be the same. The shoe will resemble the original pair from 1995.

Both are one of the most celebrated sneakers of all time. But if you could only pick one, which do you guys think was the better release? Cast your vote below on newjordans2018.com .
