Air Jordan 13 History Of Flight Performance Review

Michael used the XIII as his weapon of choice during his last season as a Chicago Bull, leaving behind a string of memorable OG colorways and some celebrated Retro releases in the middle of the last decade.

For as long as we’ve known, Jordan Brand is releasing the Air Jordan Air Jordan 13 History Of Flight with a pure-white colorway seize a lot of people heart .

Today we are talking about it .

If you are a enthusiast for sneaker , you must be familiar  with this sneaker , yes, it is the  Chicago  which  rememory  Carnival AIR JORDAN 25th anniversary in 2009 which tribute MJ legend of Chicago sneaker series.

While the 2009 sample edition of the Air Jordan 13 ‘History of Flight’ used the most premium of materials, the retail run will likely skip that detail on the toebox. The side panels appear to feature nice material quality and the colorway itself remains as fresh as it was in ’09. Jordan 13 History Of Flight with a White tumbled leather upper offset by the Red hits noted on the sole unit, lining and branding

We’ve never seen an XIII in a pure-white colorway like this, save the low-top version with the Chrome swoosh, although a ‘Silver Anniversary’ release of the XIII would’ve been rather popular (and a hot item for sneaker customizers).

Black  laces system , the traditional hologram on the lateral side of the ankle,  it is fashion as usually  for match colorway .

The  White midsole and the Metallic Silver Jumpman on the tongue round out the main features on the shoe. yes, the design already attraction by passerby .And it  is the same color scheme used on all the other retros from the History of Flight series ,but this is the first time one of those models releases to the public.

 

For supporting , With the classical structure with the upper is filling thick  tongue composed and  sufficient lacing system are both to improve the  supporting , although this AJXIII compared with today’s new shoes , but wrapped  is very well since I played some hours  .

For the classic shoes, The design is too complicated in that year ago.Because of shoes making process subject to craftwork which have not  complicated  upper making ,just only  filling the classical structure with the upper thick tongue and  lacing system are both to improve the supporting . although  AJ XIII  has been very good compare with that current sneakers.

For cushioning : At the beginning of the wear Air Jordan 13 ,I feel that snug because of its material soft ,especial in walking .But it is just only for walking ,if  we are running fastly , Then the sneaker will bring different experience in  our weight pressure and another force . Air Jordan 13 HOF  utilized the zoom which Nike  classic tech. The foresole  do its job well , and the midsole playing process performance well when turning and running . I played two hours in the inside court , the sneaker performance well . The midsole did excellent job ,especial when I jumped and fall . I think this is why it has been popular till now .Great and amazing design .ZOOM technology can be improved and used in Air Jordan 13 , maybe that is the reason Air Jordan 13 is a classic and popular .

 

 

 

For material , It is used premium of materials which white , it has been  always as a fantastic classic till now .

The leather is great ,but for summer , ventilation is not very well , if you are a fan , yeah ,you still like it . Side of  upper  have a 3M logo which Air Jordan 13 representative.

For traction : AJ XIII design inspiration from the cheetah, besides  LOGO 3M eye is hight for AJ 13 , in addition   herringbone  design used  is improving  the  grip , we can feel excellent grip both in indoor and outdoor.

 

Overall ,”HOF” series as once only one  hot commemorative color  for fans  ,all-match color, comfortable foot feeling, and pay tribute to the classic commemorative significance, there are too many reasons that we can talk .

Nike KD Trey 5 Performance Review

As attached the Durant’s on feet picture , It is perfect .As a fan of Durant , I would like to buy it . Especially Kevin Durant has finally won his first NBA Championship. He is now a world champ .Nike keeping cooperate with  Kevin Durant . Now his shoes have been a hottest in the sneaker world .The Nike Zoom KD IV coincided with Durant’s new achievements and MVP status. Kevin’s main needs are simple, though. In an exchange with Leo, Durant exclaimed, “I want it light and I want it tight to my foot. That’s the key thing. Light and tight!”

That was my dreaming that got the KD TERY5 IV , Now , my dream is coming .

Now here we go .

The boxes as usually , common with yellow color .

Flexible, lightweight, and supportive, the Nike KD Trey 5 IV is a basketball sneaker that performs on the court. The mesh with overlaying fuse for structural support ,it is good at ventilating .But KD 5 Trey IV have not use the FLYKNIT that Nike tech. Compare with the Flyknit shoes ,KD Trey 5 ‘s supporting just so so , wrapping is not bad . But not excellent then KD 9.

At the rear of the shoe, a synthetic leather panel forms as an eyelet and looks to help in the lockdown department. From what we can see, the the tooling looks to remain the same. The tractions’ rubber is very thick and the midsole consists of phylon and zoom.

The heel of the filler is not enough.  But it does not have the situation of  hurt  in the heel when fast running and twist . The  laces system with  the straps are secured to the support and fixation of lockdown .

There are 10 vents on the inside to ensure breathability, but there are a thin sponge on the vents for supporting .

Despite Durant’s request to go strap-free for this shoe, one glimpse at Leo’s design elicited a positive response. Functionally, the Adaptive Fit strap conforms to the arch, an area where KD has asked for added support because his arch is flatter.

The upper have a swoosh ,plastic strap also has a smaller logo .The KD’s number at the bottom ,and the strap also the words  “KDTERY5IIII”.

Heel by No. 35 sign.

Bigger tongue had a KD logo too .

The disadvantage of KD 9, the forefeet is a little wider , the wrapping is not bad , it is stiff for the bottom ,so I need to wear long socks. Actually the zoom did not its job well I can not feel the bounce obviously. But it is can protect my knees when fall down . So I’d like choose it for my basketball shoes .

Overall , the KD TERY5 IV is worth to buy .It is durable and good supporting . also the design  is perfect .KD TERY5 IV  has a lightweight mesh upper, midfoot strap, phylon foam midsole, and a rubber outsole with multi-directional traction pattern,

Nike Air Foamposite One Performance Review

The Nike Air Foamposite One is actually some people’s favorite shoe  to buy . Team USA’s lineup is all set for the 2016 Rio Olympics , but we’ve already seen a number of patriotic takes on their current signature models from the KD 9 to the Kyrie 2.

Today we are talking the  Nike Air Foamposite One USA .

Nike Air Foamposite One will feature all new looks that will have you wondering why they weren’t released in years past. The Nike Foamposite “Olympic” will release on July 22nd for $250 USD and dons a clean White upper with Obsidian accents and University Red meshing well with an icy outsole.

For traction :

Carbon plates are particularly clear because of this transparent gel. The shoe is especially comfortable to wear, because the full length  zoom used . Front to back they were decent at best but players often need stable traction for every direction other than front to back.

 

Heel lockdown is not very well . The shoe itself is pretty heavy on-court but add the flopping heel into the equation and you get one of the most annoying fits I’ve ever experienced

Let us look at it the insole, there is a Nike logo , in addition the insole is an American flag star .

The Foamposite shell is stiff,Having the double last midsole is addition to the stiff upper is like trying to run with bricks attached to your feet. The materials will actually outlive the glue holding everything together. So maybe this reason is annoying us .

For Cushion – Once the shoe is broken-in, then the cushion begins to soften up. I have to say it is not very well . Its strange having a shoe that features full length Zoom which double stacked in the heel ,thought it seem so firm from outside .

Overall , fit is great after it molds to your foot with the exception of the heel,and it is a little stiff .  If there were better heel lockdown available then the shoe would have played a little smoother and less clunky,and will be mre and more popular .

How about your idea?

they do look ok but does look cheap compared to the typical 13’s materials like the Black Cats or atleast the Chutneys’ toe box. still gives me a bit of a vibe but we’ll see once I see these in person this weekend. otherwise, I would go nostalgic with the Shaq Attaq or Alien Stompers.

 

The iconic silhouette actually managed to use inspirations from the Black Panther and pulled it off throughout the shoe. Both the paw prints on the outsole and the hologram – which when you turn off the lights shine up to mimic a panther’s eye, all resembles the Black Cat.

a full Black upper with 3M reflective detailing that also includes matching 3M laces.

Air Jordan CP3.IX ‘Yellow Dragon’ Performance Review

The lead colorway of the CP3.IX – Yellow Dragon – draws parallels between Paul’s on-court movement and the dragon dance that celebrates the Chinese New Year.

That I thought the China’s kongfu which fastest and quiet to move that no one can feel and suddenly hit the opponent. that is the legend man who Paul. The Additionally, the scholarly yellow dragon is known for its intelligence, a descriptor often attributed to Paul’s play. It is yellow with black, an innovative web-lacing system offers lateral support and 360-degree lockdown. A composite mesh material and strategically placed foam form a durable and supportive upper that is also lightweight and breathable.

So let’s see the details as below:

My favorite is the lace system, web-lacing system offers lateral support and 360-degree lockdown.

For design of this shoes, because I don’t love to wear high-top shoe, compare with the high-top shoes, the low one will be activity and flexible . so I will shoes this one for my basketball shoes, it is suit me very much. It’s definitely a generation.

For Materials , they are just awesome. I don’t know how they can get a foam-backed mesh setup to be so supportive, but they’ve done it and done it well. It is improving the breathable and lose the weight. The upper flexes with the foot and requires little break-in time while remaining supportive enough for movements.

Metal texture of the golden logo, quite great .

 

The logo of heel which special, it is gold with black Dragonscale leather texture.

For traction, Crystal bottom used is great . though it is not easy to keep. the herringbone pattern in the bottom is practical for breakthrough ; and there are nine air cushion in the front which red is an important design . its function like as the TPU in the bottom .

For supporting ,it is used the Torsional shank bar which it can be seen underneath the shoe .I originally thought was a FlightSpeed Plate, along with the seat belt bungee lacing. All of which do one hell of a job keeping you secure and in the shoe.

Overall , Guards will likely enjoy the shoe, but if you were expecting FlightSpeed type of cushion then you’ll be pretty disappointed. The size is true . But for the wilder footer , I suggest that you can buy over a half size .

How to choose the right sneakers ?

How to choose the right sneakers ?- Part- one

If you’ve been running , you must to choose the right sneaker. So you need to know yourself .

Pronation is part of the natural movement of the human body and refers to the way your foot rolls inward for impact distribution upon landing. Understanding your pronation type can help you find a comfortable running shoe.

  1. Underpronators (supinators)
  2. Neutral pronators
  3. Over pronators

It’s important to find running shoes that provide the best support for your arch and pronation tendencies. If you have a normal arch, you’re likely a normal pronator, meaning you’ll do best in a stability shoe that offers moderate pronation control.

UNDERPRONATION

Underpronation (or supination) is the insufficient inward roll of the foot after landing. Again, the outside of the heel makes initial contact with the ground.

How Your Foot Contacts the Ground: outer side of the heel hits the ground at an increased angle with little or no normal pronation, causing a large transmission of shock through the lower leg.

  • Push Off: pressure on smaller toes on outside of foot.
  • Considered Injuries: plantar fasciitis, shin splints, ankle strain.
  • Foot type: high arches.

NEUTRAL

How Your Foot Contacts the Ground: foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight

  • Push Off: even distribution from the front of the foot.
  • Considered Injuries: less likely due to effective shock absorption, but neutral runners are not immune to injury.
  • Foot Type: normal-size arches

OVERPRONATION

As with the “normal pronation” sequence, the outside of the heel makes the initial ground contact. However, the foot rolls inward more than the ideal fifteen percent, which is called “overpronation.” This means the foot and ankle have problems stabilizing the body, and shock isn’t absorbed as efficiently. At the end of the gait cycle, the front of the foot pushes off the ground using mainly the big toe and second toe, which then must do all the work.

How Your Foot Contacts the Ground: foot lands on outside of heel, then rolls inward (pronates) excessively, transferring weight to inner edge instead of ball of the foot

  • Push Off: big toe and second toe do majority of the work
  • Considered Injuries: shin splints, plantar fasciitis, bunions, heel spurs
  • Foot Type: low arches or flat feet

The relation of feet type and pronator ?

  1. Low arches runners often cause overpronation
  2. Normal arch often cause the normal pronation
  3. low arches or flat feet are not sure , maybe underpronation or over probation .

How to chose the right sneaker?

If you’re an overpronator, here are a few tips to help you find the right shoes for your feet.

  1. Wear shoes with straight or semi-curved lasts
  2. Look for motion-control or stability shoes with firm, multidensity midsoles and external control features that limit pronation
  3. Use over-the-counter orthotics or arch supports

If you’re an underpronator, here are a few tips to help you find the right shoes for your feet.

Wear shoes with curved lasts to allow pronation

Look for lightweight trainers as they allow more foot motion

Check for flexibility on the medial (inner) side of the shoe
