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.

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 .
