adidas Pro Bounce 2018 Performance Review

 

With names like Donovan Mitchell and Kristaps Porzingis rocking the stripes, adidas should have some solid representation league-wide, and these two new designs with Bounce cushion technology ,that is the most exciting news that the adidas Pro Bounce 2018  released . Of course, where there’s a high cut variation, there’s sure to be a low cut version. So there isn’t any surprise that the Adidas Pro Bounce 2018 Low.

We will check the performance today.

 

 There isn’t a lot of difference between the two designs other than the fact that the low has a shorter shaft. But there are lots of buyers who still find it difficult to make a choice even with such minimal difference.

Material:

The materials are what adidas is calling Forged Mesh. It’s fairly similar to the toe area on the Harden Vol. 2, but the feeling is different.Although they are all the material of mesh,but the performance is different. We can see the sneakers from the forefoot to the instep was the same material,which make the shoe smore durability. The knitted upper is used, which and the heat welded fuse urethane-coated fiber is embedded in the upper, which is the Forgefiber material named by Adidas.

And the most important is  it is not  just more like normal mesh, but there are some areas that are reinforced while other areas are still soft and allow airflow. so the ventilation is amazing .

 

 

The heel part section uses a more elastic nylon fiber to provide a more comfortable feeling when in contact with the skin, and because the material’s quick-drying properties also allow the shoe to absorb sweat during exercise. The Pro Bounce 2018 is relatively profile low in terms of the individual design of the shoes. First of all, the white-based design is not  easy too keep clean.

 

 

 

 

 

Traction :

The traction not too bad, the friction pattern is excellent for gripping in all directions, especially in the anti-rollover, relying on a few semicircles of the forefoot expansion, the Pro Bounce 2018 can play in the direction of change or some extreme angles which more better of the traction.

The Pro Bounce 2018 Low Basketball Shoe from Adidas seems like a really promising pick. I’d imagine the shoe would make a great choice for high-flying players like point guards.

 

A huge TPU anti-twist  from the midsole of the shoe help a lot. It can be seen that these shoes are very stable. After all, Adidas has been very fond of anti-torsion function, like the model of Harden or the crazy explosive, including Pro Bounce have adopted a large TPU setting. And in the position of the arch, Pro Bounce’s TPU is more solid, and the actual performance is good.

 

 

For fitting :

The size of EUR 44 ‘s weighs about 420g, and the weight of the upper foot is still a bit obvious. Plus the fabric of the shoe itself is not breathable, and the long-term movement of the shoes gives people a feeling of hot.

 

 

Supporting ;

Support might not great. Plus, it’s hard to tell if the small reinforced section above the heel cup will be enough to provide sufficient stability to reduce lateral movement of the heel. When it comes to responsiveness though, there really isn’t any difference.

 

 

Cushioing :

The adidas Pro Bounce features full-length Bounce cushioning, as its name suggests. Bounce, for those that have yet to try it, is very comfortable.  I think it is more like the Adidas Rose 9 .if you bought it before, maybe you will feeling a lot. If your past experience with adidas basketball products only includes its previous EVA and adiPrene setups then you’re missing out.

 

Overall , This  shoes amazing ,Fused Mesh Knit upper may not be as good as Primeknit, but the ventilation is nice ,the bounce always the best great , I like the feeling of responsive of the  cushioning.

Nike Air Force 1 Jester , Is It Broken ?

I guess that everyone must know Air Force 1, and maybe you have one this kind of shoes in your closet. Yes,Air Force 1 have been released 35 years so far.In addition, the Nike  made a special plan to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the of Air Force 1, which made the shoes with clear and trendy attributes once again ,also Air Force 1 has been most popular since anniversary  than.In order to commemorate the Nike brand  “Just Do It”, no matter which color for this series Air Force 1 Low, once again ignited everyone’s desire for Air Force 1. However, when we are browsing the Air Force 1 , we also find a maverick existence ,the special one .Please check as below :

 

 

Yes ,this Air Force seems not complete , or it just like wrong products , because of the classic Swoosh Logo is not in the right  position which in the traditional shoes, but is sewn between the upper and the midsole, which is quite eye-catching in many shoes. But just when everyone hasn’t attention for this designer, this kind of shoes has not only launched a number of different colors, but also gradually appeared on the feet of many people, and let more people feel the charm of this unique design.

 

We can see the shoes clearly for this design, moving  the traditional Swoosh Logo down, use a double-layer shoe block on the heel and sew the brand label design, officially the current popular deconstruction design concept, so this is a pair of classic products based on the popular The new single product produced by the design method, but also specifically for women, can be said to have have new styles and design compare with last model.

It is show the Deconstruction. This is not a new vocabulary, but the real origin and the 1960s, proposed by the French philosopher Jacques Derrid. Yes,  your are right, the earliest used for text analysis. The core of deconstruction is that we see a structured text structure. In fact, there is no center, so there is no immutable meaning. Since this idea is a critical inheritance of orthodox principles and standards, that is, the reversal and reconstruction of traditions, thus creating new meanings, so soon this concept of breaking the conventional re-style is popular, and the fashion industry It was also quickly absorbed into this concept.

 

Deconstruction is designed to reorganize objects by using distortions, splits, etc., so as to highlight the design elements and give more content to the work. But this concept can be widely used and popular in today’s sneaker field, thanks to Virgil Abloh, who has been mentioned many times, and his collaboration with Nike. The “The Ten” series of shoes, which was released last year, uses deconstruction concepts, with unique cuts, exaggerated stitching lines, orange plaques and anti-adhesive plastic straps, all of element make the people felt more refreshing

None of those previous iterations were quite like these two wild versions, with one adding a marbled outsole underneath a blue and orange midsole as well as a creamy Light Bone tumbled leather upper. It is accompanied by an upcoming color scheme that utilizers that same marbled outsole

Air Jordan XI “Space Jam 2016” Performance Review

Space Jam (the movie) is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year so the timing couldn’t have been any better to bring back this iconic and possibly the most popular colorway of the Air Jordan 11. Staying true to the original, this Air Jordan 11 features a black mesh upper with a a higher-cut patent leather mudguard.

We will check the performance review today.

For the box, the box is nice , the 23 number words  is special .

 

For the material :

Jordan XI uses a large patent leather with an upper nylon upper.

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.
After tightening the shoelace system, you can feel the middle part and the upper part of the shoe body can effectively fit the feet, but the lower part of the patent leather material is relatively hard, even if the shoelace is fastened, there are still some parts in the toe cap.

 

For the supporting :

The patent leather material is relatively hard, this feature makes the Jordan Xi reaction have a good performance in terms of support. Especial when I am moving fast , the feet are still stable in the shoe,  it is have been not  happen overly deformed.
The Carbon Fiber Stabilizer from Jordan XI provides good resistance to torsion and stability in actual combat.
However,I think the traction is more higher ,so I will be more lace the balance , and the prominent part of the Outrigger on the outside seems not help . Although this has no effect in actual combat, it is mentioned.

 

 

 

The Carbon Fiber Stabilizer from Jordan XI provides good resistance to torsion and stability in actual combat. It help a lot anyway.

 

For the 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 XI have solid rubber traction pods located in the heel and forefoot. And the  translucent outsole can not easy to keep .also it was tight to bite the ground, whether it was side-to-Side (film ) or before and after, the field can be tight to bite the ground.
Besides, the sound of these shoes is quite raw, and personal likes this!

 

The blue of jumpmen is amazing.Also we can see the detail of the heel part.

 

For the Reaction : the lower bottom of Jordan Xi leads to a less ideal sense of sticker and reaction.
From the bottom of transparency can see Jordan Xi carrying a large blockbuster of carbon fiber stable pieces, the benefits behind the back will be mentioned, but such a large blockbuster of stability has a certain degree of influence in the field of the field, and the shoes are bending, let the shoes be a little The feeling of slow and half-Phai, not with the moves of certain times (entry).

 

 

For the cushioning :

Jordan XI uses the full length Air Sole with Phylon as the cushioning system.and it could feel a clear sense of subsidence with air sole in the field, we can felt more  a good cushioning but no feeling of shaking  when landing, but the heel is a little too soft, causing a long time to wear Jordan XI, the heel will be sore. However, with a pair of sneakers 22 years ago, the slowdown is truly amazing.

Here is the  video , we can check it as below :

Nike LeBron 15 Low Performance Review

Usually  people think that the performance of  low type  of the NBA star signature shoe never better than the high type of  shoes? LeBron 15 Low continues the excellent Battleknit upper, changes the midsole, and fixes the shortcomings of the high type of shoes  , it is abandon the stereotype review this time.

So we will check it closely  as below:

Traction :

Traction on the Nike LeBron 15 Low isn’t too far from what was used on the original Nike LeBron 15, but it was tweaked enough to make a difference.The LeBron 15 Low outsole consists of a solid triangular unit, similar to the “shoe stud” texture. The high type shoes divides the outsole into 4 blocks due to the configuration of the midsole cushion; due to the change of the LeBron 15 Low midsole configuration, the outsole is also adjusted to  a nice circle along the outsole.

 

LeBron 15 Low’s “studs” concept is the same as the high version, but the texture is  different. Compared to the Lebron 15 high , the low-profile version is more obliquely oriented (laterally) . The grip performance in the lateral movement and the change direction will be better.

The two versions of traction of Lebron  not too bad .Overall, the LeBron 15 Low’s grip doesn’t have too many “impressive” performance . There is no bright eye but also the LeBron never sliding if you play, and I think the grip is more better than LeBron 15 high .There has been a slight improvement in the grip, especially in the forefoot area where the contact floor , the part of forefoot increases the grip and the grain arrangement changes, but there is still room for improvement in the impetuous performance.

 

Cushioning:

Cushion from the original LeBron 15 wasn’t carried over in any way, which I find unfortunate because the rear Air Max unit could have been a Max Zoom unit. Had it been Max Zoom I think the LeBron 15 Low would have been a bit more amazing than it already is.

The LeBron 15 high version  used  Zoom with Max is a top-notch of cushioning , but it is not suitable for most players. Although the LeBron 15 Low is a fan-shaped Zoom Air with a front-mounted foot,but we can felt the zoom much. Zoom Air has the great responsive of performance.

This setup does sit a bit higher off the ground than most guard shoes, but this shoe isn’t really for guards

Nike Kyrie Low Performance Review

Kyrie wanted his Low to have everything his signature game shoes have had, but retooled with an all-day play component, so the Nike Kyrie Low just released . “Uncle Drew” Nike Kyrie 4 drop isn’t the only sneaker the brand has lined up to celebrate the release of Kyrie Irving’s movie of the same name.

But how about the performance review ?We will check it today.

This low-top execution of the “Uncle Drew” theme includes the gum sole, speckled midsole, and blue accents seen on its Kyrie 4 counterpart, but strays from the mid-top’s white upper for a grey-based design.Also there are the black color .Dressed in a stately combination of silver and black, a few of the sneaker’s physical attributes are a bit more prevalent on this particular color scheme

For the material : the Nike Kyrie low used the mesh and fuse upper, you’ll find subtle blue accents on the inner lining . As we know for the  mesh material , it will be more comfortable , but the  supporting just not too bad .there were still some hotspots around my toes and the upper made a popping feel when flexing my foot. The medial and strap Swoosh are leather ,so it is make the up of the mesh soft .We can felt more a little premium feeling .There are some areas of fuse around the toebox for a little extra durability. Thats part design is really nice.

Then the the molded heel counter did a great job ,primary material with no layering to mimicking the spiked look from the Kyrie 1. The Kyrie Low uses a molded heel counter underneath the fabric to push the look. But the supporting will less supporting .

Actually the material of  Kyrie low 1  is not the best great, I think the Kyrie 4 will be great with the  engineered mesh  which more supporting and durability , and this kind of material will be lightweight  and durability.

 

For the supporting :

 

A rounded outsole takes a little while to get used to, if you haven’t played Kyrie before (and fortunately it doesn’t wobble like Kyrie 2) but once you do that it will be controlled during the exercise. The lacing system locks you in the shoe and places your foot in the midsole (instead of directly on the sole) so you don’t slide wherever you don’t want it.

Kyrie Low has a midfoot handle in the middle – this is a standard hidden TPU that provides a little midfoot support. The heel cup is sturdy and keeps your feet vertical. This should be enough for most players, even for larger inside players, because the sturdy midsole can’t be compressed to tipping – which helps keep the foot steady.

 

 

 

 

For the cushioning :

A Kyrie model uses both forefoot and heel Zoom Air for cushioning.

The rear foot Zoom Air, with the Kyrie series basketball shoes in the Phylon midsole. Although the number of air cushions is “upgraded”, it is estimated from the price that it should be a Zoom Air (a hexagonal air cushion similar to Kyrie Flytrap) with a small pocket of the previous foot and a small foot.

 

For the traction:

Kyrie Low’s outsole style is a line of straight and mimics herringbone , with a large area of gum rubber.The outer sides have a design that extends to the midsole, which increases the grip area of the feet at more angles when cutting. Thats design will be help a lot when playing . The traction pattern mimics herringbone with the different angles and spacings,  which is wide enough that wiping was at an extreme minimum

Although Kyrie Low design incorporates some elements from Kyrie 1 to Kyrie 4 , if the  pull  tape is removed, the shoe similarity with Kyrie 3, as well as the upper material, with mesh  and  fuse coating on the inside of the forefoot.A total of 6 sets of lace holes arranged in a dense design, so that the Kyrie Low mid-section and the instep fit  tightly, also that is  help a lot for the  lockdown.The position of the collar and the heel added a thick lining filler, so that the two areas The coating is very good.

overall , The Kyrie Low actually nice .felt stiff and way too solid underfoot for me to enjoy playing in. Luckily, the shoe began to warm up to me and broke in nicely, both in the midsole and the upper, and the supporting also nice too.

Whats The Difference Between Under Armour Curry 2.5 and Under Armour Curry 3

The Under Armour Curry 3 will be worn by Stephen Curry during the 2016-17 NBA Season as he and the Golden State Warriors look to have another dominating season. and the  Under Armour Curry 2.5 is the Stephen Curry’s second signature shoe. It was built for the 2016 NBA Playoffs and inspired by California’s Bay Bridge, which links San Francisco to Oakland. I play long time for these two pair of shoes , but whats the difference performance review for these two pair of shoes ?

We will check it as below :

 

 

First of all, there are obvious differences in appearance. Many people think that Curry 3 is not unique enough to be branded compared to other Under Armour basketball shoes, but don’t forget that this is Stephen Curry’s signature shoe.  From the Curry 1 to Curry 2.5, as a signature shoe, the Curry shoes  seem look similarity .maybe in the information explosion age, the shoes need to be more unique and special , so that will be  attract more customers.But the Curry 3  just difference compare with the last model.Whether you like it or not, Under Armour curry 3 just change the appearance also the performance is different.

 

Material :

Under Armour brand  focuses on Stephen Curry himself at present. So the Curry 3 uses the new ThreadborneTM upper, which is a technology that can be explored. The core element of the upper is from paracord of parachute rope material. The ultra-durable fiber of the rope has extremely tough and firm . And the warp-weaving upper provides excellent support with lightweight.otherwise the Curry 2.5 was relies on by TPU .But the Curry 2.5 have more different feeling .

 

A closer look at Curry 3, the upper is made up of a large number of vertical and horizontal lines. According to the official statement, although paracord is inherently limited in color, but we can check there is no the same  color of  Curry shoes.

The designer said that the delicateness and functionality of the ThreadborneTM fiber itself . Curry 3 creates a more natural fit than Curry 2.5 with thick padding.  it’s the same as Curry. Intimate, but with an unimaginable legacy, the ThreadborneTM upper will not always remind you of its existence, but it does continue to provide solid performance support.

 

 

Under Armour has introduced Threadborne into its material arsenal and it’s pretty awesome so far. High tensile threads are used throughout the lateral side of the shoe and provide you with a comfortable fit without sacrificing any support.

 

 

For the lace system ,the Curry 3  is more special ,The key point is that the top of the shoelace hole has reinforcement. When you tighten the shoelace of Curry 3, there is a feeling of ready to go.  The kind of excitement that is ready for adrenaline to flow through the body.

 

Supporting ,

We look at Curry 3 ,  the supporting is amazing ,Plenty of solid support features are used throughout the Curry 3. The exaggerated midsole sculpts into the heel counter while true carbon fiber wings are in place for additional security. Your ankle isn’t going anywhere in these guys so long as you’re wearing your proper size. The curry 2.5 actually nice too .The anafoam used extends from the inside shoe to the heel to protected , we can felt more  soft padding.

 

 

The side is called the Meta-Wing Stabilizer. It looks like the wing of an airplane. That is will be great help for the entire support structure. The individual part of the arch is the body.

 

Traction :

For the Curry 3, I think the traction will be great than the Curry 2.5, though the curry 2.5 is alos nice . but the Curry 3 has more strong grip.Herringbone is utilized once again, and like the Curry models that have come before the 3, traction is beastly.he pattern on the Curry 2.5 was a bit more aggressive than what is used on the 3, but the rubber compound on the 3 is much more tacky in comparison.

 

Curry 3’s grip is absolutely enough,but the Curry 2.5 is better. I feel a little more improved in the focus area. Perhaps Curry is not explosive.  but I still hopes to have a significant improvement on Curry 4.

 

 

Here are more picture as below :

 

It can be seen that this Charged Cushioning is still used multi-density configuration, and the heel is further strengthened for the suspension. After the actual wear, the overall cushioning feeling  that bring to us is nice , but the response is very balanced and balanced.

Overall, Curry 3 and Curry just have a little difference, but the performance is nice , the  Curry 3  used the Threadborne™material , which more provide the supporting , but the Curry 2.5 material will be more comfortable.
