Air Jordan 12 GYM RED Performance Review

A lot of people will choose the CNY as the gift of new year , but for me , I like the  Air Jordan 12 GYM RED  . 2018 has seen several Air Jordan 12 releases including the ‘International Flight Pack‘ to a Michigan PE, so if the shoe is your jam you’ve had plenty of options to choose from. Now, yet another upcoming colorway has been leaked and it’s going to be monochromatic.

We will look at it closely .

 

The shoe flaunts a predominantly red upper and midsole but expect there to be a hits of black on the outsole at the traction pods.it is totally red , I think it is bight color . that is will be stunning in the winter .

 

For the material : The leather and workmanship are really good. The leather of the upper is very special, with small spotted texture, but not lychee. The leather surface is matte, with a slight starting point, but it is obviously not a fur, the texture is soft and the touch is delicate.

 

 

The anti-rollover is made of hard leather and has a deeper texture. Since the leather is not bright, even the reddish skin will look introverted and will not be exposed. I really like this texture.

 

 

The arched bow and the laces are made of dark red metal. The plastic is light and wearable. The metallic paint can also have a high cold smell. There is a place worth noting that the lace lining adds a layer of soft foam pad to solve the problem of grinding feet.

 

The texture of the carbon plate is very general, and the bluish carbon plate is faintly seen from the white glue trace. The ASG LOW and TAXI carbon board textures I bought earlier are much clearer than this.

 

For the traction:

Herringbone is featured in similar fashion to the previous Air Jordan signature  shoe .and also it is totally the same with the other model of Air Jordan 12 .The phrase, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” comes to mind as they haven’t changed much so it works relatively the same.

The rounded edges of the outsole will serve you no purpose and you will likely slip or lose balance. And the traction will be more stiff.that what I feeling .

For the cushioning :

The Air Jordan 12 gets cushioning from a full-length Zoom Air unit and Phylon midsole so expect these to be fully playable on-court.They are comfortable enough wearing casually but you won’t experience what these can truly do until you play in them.

The entire sole with the heel foam is also red, only the “23” and “flying man” LOGO embellishment. The overall texture of this AJ12 is relatively stable, it is a good match.

There are more detail of the shoe .

 

The air cushion is as flexible as ever, and as the process improves, the weight of the midsole and the glue is well controlled, so the air cushion feedback texture remains more complete.

 

The AJ12 all-red insole is softer and thinner this time. It is made of a lower density sponge pad (TAXI is an old-fashioned EVA, ASG LOW is a hard sponge), and it is an air cushion. But the insole is really too thin, and it’s really bad to step on the air cushion.So I changed it by myself .

We can see more picture about it .

I already loved the Air Jordan XII based on its looks but that fact that they can handle practically anything you can throw at them made me love them even more.

Midfoot and heel lockdown were great. I never once had an issue after they broke in. As expected with leather based sneakers, the leather will stretch a bit after they’ve been broken in.

Overall, If you are looking for a good basketball shoe that has low profile, responsive cushion then look no further as the Air Jordan XII will meet and possibly exceed your expectations. You will get over their initial clunky feeling after you give yourself some time to adjust but after that you will fall in love with them all over again.

Nike Air Force 1 Utility Performance Review

I am used to the all-white AIR FORCE 1, and I have recently started to try different AIR FOCE 1, although it is still white. I have brought you the JDI version of AIR FORCE 1, and this time I will bring you a recent “fire” style: AIR FORCE 1 Utility 2018.

Speaking of the deconstruction design style of AIR FORCE 1, the following pair should be more “outstanding” than today’s protagonist, the whole NIKE SWOOSH moved down, and the cloth label on the tongue was moved to the second half of the hook.

The style of the side label of the shoe box has changed. It may be that NIKE thinks that more and more people of the retro style Air Force 1 will wear men’s and women’s models, and women’s models are worn by men. The two sizes of MEN’S and WMEN’S are indicated directly on the side label of the shoe box.

Here are the more details of the side .There is no JUST DO IT sticker in this Air Force 1 shoe box. There is only one manual for NIKE shoes

The look always the most classic. In the cleat we see a clear connection in the form of Air Force 1 paneling, and in the more obvious front-fastening magnetic Fidlock hardware. The white cleat also features “OBJ” branding next to Nike’s logo at the strap and on the tongue.

 

Black and white color is still very classic and cool. The main shoe  is white, leather, lining, midsole and outsole are all white. The tongue mark, the side logo, the heel embroidered, and the “AIR” logo on the midsole are treated in black.

 

The AIR FORCE 1 Utility is also not equipped with a solid shoelace buckle. Instead, it is a small embroidered SWOOSH. For the leather, the Utility uses soft lychee, which more comfortable but more prone to wrinkles. I afraid it will full of wrinkles if I used more .

 

There are 3 Nike “hooks” that can be seen directly on the outside. One in front of the shoelace, one outside the forefoot, one in the normal position. This large “hook” in the normal position is slightly different from the normal version. It is not extended from the heel embroidery, and the right side of the hook A circle R, meaning “registered trademark” means, because the NIKE LOGO next to the sole has such a circle R

 

NIKE’s big “hook” has a layer of cloth embroidered with text. This piece of cloth is actually the cloth label on the previous tongue. It may be difficult for people who have not read it carefully to find out where the piece comes from.

 

 

The pull ring is an element that was not previously on Air Force 1.

Looking good is also an important factor. Most people make a first impression about you from the kind of shoes you are wearing and by most I mean women. She can tell if you are concerned about your appearance or not and also how much you are worth and the kind of gifts that you are able to give her.

 

Although some people may feel that Air Force1 is stiff and thick, but when the size is right, Air Force 1 is more fit after wearing for a period of time. The feeling of the foot does not so soften, and it is really not brisk, but like AF1. The person must be able to accept the feeling of its feet

 

The shoe is look cool on my feet.It is a shoe with so much history filled in it. It has been named after the jet that carries the US president. It has two soles a mid sole and an outsole. The midsole has been filled with the Nike air unit while the outsole has rubber with pivot points at forefoot and heel. The upper part has been made from both textile and leather with perforation abilities.

I bought a lot of Air Force sneakers shoe . I like them very much .

It is a good purchase seeing that, you will be comfortable at all times which is the most important feature of any good shoe.

UA HOVR Havoc Performance Review

Under Armour is ready to introduce a basketball-specific silhouette that blends the new platform with the specifics of the sport.HOVR itself is a blend of foam cushioning and an energy web, promising a bounce and feel unique to the industry.

We will check the performance today

 

The office said that it added focus on lock-down, containment, and stability should offer a supreme blend of comfort and support, while the breathable and lightweight package promises maximum speed by the player.

 

 

The Havoc, which is mainly made of rice and gray. The upper can be divided into two parts. The TPU is equipped with a TPU heat material to enhance the overall stretch resistance, and the tongue-to-sleeve mesh breathable  upper. It is also possible to reduce the overall weight of the shoe, and the external TPU rear support bracket helps to optimize the support. The rubber outsole is the most conservative and boring  designer this time which  a herringbone pattern, with  effectively strengthens the grip.

 

 

But to be honest, it is still very powerful. Havoc as a pair of high-top sneakers .First of all,it is true size , Usually wear NIKE us 10, and this shoe was fitting .  Plus a large area of heat melt upper material for the forefoot. Breathability can’t be expected too great, so Havoc’s continued combat capability can’t last longer.

For the cushioning  ;

Having HOVR located from the heel to the midfoot doesn’t sound like it would be all that comfortable for those that primarily play on their toes, but I was impressed. Again, once broken-in the ride was slightly bouncy — but not to the point where I felt unstable.HOVR’s signature energy grid design is the best guarantee, and the shoes bring a soft rebound experience after each jump. The overall modulus of elasticity is not high. However, it is guaranteed that the athletes in each weight range can feel the presence of HOVR. The cushioning of the forefoot is weaker than the hind paw, which is in line with the current game play requirements.  everyone is different and some folks like a bit more bounce under the forefoot. For that I would have loved to have seen a thinner top layer of HOVR combined with the EVA underneath.Overall, Havoc’s cushioning effect is great .

 

 

The HOVR Havoc is just as awesome outdoors, if not slightly more awesome, than it was indoors. The shoe has become one of my go-to outdoor options because it have provided me with reliable coverage. it actually awesome ,and the grip is great ,it can help a lot in the game .Herringbone is the way to go and herringbone is what UA uses more often than not. Yes, the brand tried something new on the Curry 5 and it didn’t quite work.

 

 

We hear and read it all the time, “Why do companies tell stories on the bottom of a performance shoe when you can’t see whatever lame story they’re trying to tell” ,yes, the shoe actually great too.Anti-twist ability, look at Havoc’s huge midsole anti-twisting support, you know it will not be bad, in the dynamic link, Havoc in the ankle and the midsole part can be very good against external forces. I don’t admit that I can’t even do a good job of resisting twisting ,except the Kobe AD 2018.

 

For the wrapping : the wrapping actually great .The grip function, although we just spit Havoc’s friction pattern is nothing new. However, in terms of functional performance, the herringbone pattern really does not have black. The emergency stop and start of various angles, Havoc’s friction feedback on the wooden floor is  rapid, although the expansion of the outsole is not obvious. But the rollover prevention is also very good. Havoc’s grip is the most prominent performances.

For the supporting :

To be honest, although it has a hot melt upper with a TPU forefoot, the design of the shoelace is very reasonable, and the high-top design Havoc can get a high score. And it is also suitable for more people. But as a pair of high price, there is no length boot, just the elastic band of at the bottom of the tongue. This is really a bit unreasonable. The shoelaces really make up for the lack of hollowness in the inner boots, but there is always a slip in the havoc’s tongue, which makes us felt bad.

 

Overall :With a TPU carrier for the visible midfoot section of the HOVR cushion.and the look also cool ,the supporting also great . I have to say I like this shoe very much ,though I dont like the traction part .

Kobe 8 System VS Kobe AD PE,What Is The Difference Of Kobe Shoe

 

One year ago, on December 19th, 2017, the Lakers retired Kobe’s jersey on the way to the Warriors. I remember that clearly .

Now the Kobe series has added new members, so I can’t help but take the medicine after one year. I will compare the two pairs of Kobe’s shoes again. This time it is Kobe 8 System and Kobe AD PE.

So what is the difference of Kobe 8 System and Kobe AD PE? We will check here today.

 

I personally are not a Kobe fan who believes in the “Mamba spirit.” And as a fan of high-profile design, I didn’t have much affection for Nike’s Kobe series at first. But inadvertently, it is still attracted….. One of the reasons is that some styles of foot performance are really good, I am embarrassed to that another important reason is that I just encountered a color that I can’t refuse. Last year’s 5 and 10 probably belonged to the former, and this time Kobe 8 and Kobe AD PE belonged to the latter.

The Kobe 8 System, named after Kobe System, the soul of this “System” lies in the interchangeable midsole cushioning system. In fact, the concept of Zoom Kobe2 in 2006 was in its infancy. When the technology was suspected to be immature, three different forms of Kobe2 (Strength, Ultimate, Lite) were finally released. Until 2011, the birth of the Kobe 7 System marked its realization.
The midsole of the Kobe 8 System continues the previous generation design and is divided into three interchangeable midsole systems: Lunarlon, +Sport Pack and Orthotic-Ready. (The latter two probably mean Lunarlon+Zoom or Lunarlon+Zoom+nike+ interfaces, and most people, including me, have never experienced their feelings, so I have no intention to say more.)

For me, in addition to the color of the addition, Kobe 8 and Kobe AD compared to last year’s Kobe 5 and 10, in all respects are slightly inferior, and there are some obvious shortcomings

 

Everyone has their own clear standards and obedience for the choice of sneakers: For me, the color matching factor is extremely important, and often directly affects my purchase choice. Specifically, my standard is the color that can match the Lone Ranger jersey (where blue is the majority)… Even if some shoes are not in their own right, if the color are my best favorite ,I still choose that .

 

Kobe 8 System and Kobe AD PE are both used to match the second away jersey of the 2009~2010 season. It is one of my personal favorite styles and only goes through that season.

 

Start with the Kobe 8 System.The KOBE 8 SYSTEM is the result of a close collaboration between Nike Performance Footwear Creative Director Eric Avar, his team and Kobe himself. For his latest creation, Kobe wanted a shoe that acted as an extension of his foot, mirroring his quick performance while staying lower to the ground.Inspirations come from Kobe’s nickname “Black Mamba.” In fact, the design concept of “Black Mamba” runs through the entire Kobe series. Previously, several generations of Kobe were similar in appearance to the “snake”, but they were only limited to the shape. In the 8th generation, Eric Avar hoped that it had the shadow of a snake from the inside out, so he used a kind of upper material called Engineered Mesh, which is the EM engineering mesh that will be mentioned many times below. A variety of fancy color combinations, it seems a bit snake skin at a distance. Low help and light weight are also the requirements of Kobe himself.

 

“I’m always focused on improving my game, to perform at my best.  I want my shoes to mimic the speed of my game,” Kobe said. “By shaving fractions off the height and weight, it allows me to play faster with more control so I can maneuver across the court – I want to feel like I’m moving at the speed of light.”

For the shoe, it is really light.Because of this, my impression of it has changed. It feels like the 2011 Adidas’ CrazyLight, which is relatively rare in Nike’s basketball shoes. It is said to weigh 9.6 ounces, or less than 300 grams. The blue that came out later, let me start the idea, and with all kinds of attractive discounts, I finally bought it. The feelings about actual combat will be described in detail below.

For the Kobe AD PE. PE means that the common “PE” is the “Player exclusive” player version, which refers to Kobe’s famous admirers by Demar Derozan ,he continues to be the proverbial billboard for Kobe Bryant’s signature line of footwear while the Black Mamba enjoys his retirement. This has granted the Raptors All-Star a number of exclusive PEs that have been the envy of Kobe fans around the league. Next up to join that long list is a Kobe AD offering inspired by Bryant’s Olympic Jersey.

Dressed in blue, it features a scaly snake graphic on the upper as well as a “10|10” logo on its heel. Enjoy an in-depth look at Demar’s newest Kobe PE below and check out what he laces up in Toronto’s second round playoff series .Its insole features a graphic that melds Bryant and Derozan together, sharing one number ten uniform. In fact, Derozan wears number ten for the Raptors in honor of Bryant’s international jersey.

 

 

 

For the Kobe 8 System material:

Engineered Mesh is not a new technology, it is even cheaper than Flyknit, but at the time, Kobe 8 was an innovative move with EM uppers. 90% mesh material coverage for all shoes creates an extremely light and breathable wearing experience,Luckily it isn’t scary at all and there was much more Fuse placed on the shoe than what you can actually see. Not only did this keep things light but it also added a ton of structure and support so even though you have a shoe that weighs in at a mere 9.6 Oz.

 

For the Kobe 8 System ,In order to increase the support, there are multiple sets of “fixed layers” inside the upper. The design concept comes from Roman sandals, which is equivalent to a skeleton, so that the upper can be kept as stable as possible during the intense exercise. The upper itself is not It looks so soft and has a certain degree of toughness. Although there were a lot of rhetoric in the official propaganda at the time, I personally liked to simply attribute the Kobe8’s upper to light.

 

For the Kobe AD,I was attract by the leather upper first. Although it is an artificial material, it is rare in this era. And the different color of the upper material is not the same, for example, the early color is suede, Nike’s logo also uses double-layer embroidery, in my opinion at least a hundred times stronger than those hot stamping. The details of this DeRozan PE are more abundant. The Nike logo is made of white canvas and has a unique texture. it features a scaly snake graphic on the upper as well as a “10|10” logo on its heel. that is look great.

 

 

Kobe AD PE,this series seems to lack some vitality. Kobe’s retirement has a major impact, but I have to say that these AD shoes have not been designed to have any bright spots. However, relatively speaking, last year’s this is not bad, the configuration is also said to be relatively good.

Then the Kobe 8,
This seemingly thin tongue plays a more important role in the wrapping system. Although the foam filling in the tongue is very limited, due to the EM upper, the thickness from the tongue can be felt at the moment of the upper foot.
On the one hand, it resists the pressure from the shoelace, and at the same time has a certain degree of toughness, which can stably cover the entire instep and provide support during the fierce competition. The diffused vents still guarantee the circulation of air.

 

 

Kobe AD has some return to the traditional meaning, giving me a more realistic foot. The upper is clearly visible in a row of spliced Flywire, the overall package is remarkable, the internal filling also has a certain thickness, very close to the foot, it is estimated that for most people who pass through, there will be a similar feeling.
Demar Derozan also worked hard on the design of the upper. If you look closely, it is not difficult to find that the inside of the left and right feet is printed with a lying Chinese character. The inside of the left foot is “壹”, and the inside of the right foot is “玖” “.

A large number of serpentine prints on the upper inherit the Kobe theme of the Kobe series. In fact, for the snake itself, although it is my zodiac property, it does not reduce my fear of it.

 

For the Kobe 8 ,Lockdown isn’t just available. There are little pillows along the center of the tongue, allowing you the ability to lace up your kicks as tight as possible without cutting off circulation, and the overall containment is top notch… especially for a shoe that looks more like a runner than a traditional hoop shoe.

 

 

The support is mostly coming from the outstanding fit. There is a heel clip to help keep your heel in place as well as a glass based Carbon Fiber shank for torsional rigidity and support. Inside the shoe, the Lunarlon midsoles do have a molded arch in place as well. For those of you that use orthotics, you may want to consider grabbing the Zoom Air laced orthotic ready insole option

 

 

Here are more details as below:

 

This created a dynamic and ultra-lightweight fit that is 90 percent mesh for 360 degrees of breathability and tightly woven for strength and flexibility to bend naturally with the foot. Additionally, the no-sew, synthetic overlays on the toe and lateral quarter panel provide support for even the toughest games.It is possible to consider the durability of the EM upper when designing. Kobe8 deliberately adds a piece of “transparent film” to the forefoot part of the forefoot, but as mentioned above, the broken place will definitely break. The anti-torsion aspect is quite satisfactory

 

For the traction:

 

 

There are more details as below :  Lunarlon cushioning for a soft yet responsive ride, or an orthotic-ready Nike Zoom insert which is super-thin and sits lower to the ground than traditional midsole inserts. and the heel part also give us a surprised

 

 

 

The shoe’s full-length Lunarlon midsole delivers lightweight, low-profile cushioning, and is low to the ground allowing for greater stability.

 

A one-millimeter rubber outsole – combining classic herringbone with a snake scale-inspired traction pattern – uses less rubber than traditional outsoles for lightweight durability and excellent multi-surface traction. The 3-D anatomical heel counter provides a sleek, locked down fit.

 

For Lunarlon, I personally don’t have much affection so far. The comfort level of the new shoes is still satisfactory, but compared to other materials, Lunarlon’s cushioning life has become the biggest weakness of the technology itself. And compared with Zoom, I can’t always resolve its weak sense of cheapness. And another problem with the Kobe 8 Lunarlon is the shape of the arch part, which is a little weak for me.

 

The midsole of the Kobe AD PE features the configuration of the Forefoot Lunarlon + Back Pocket Zoom Air. This is basically the standard of the Kobe series since the 10th generation, but the impression of the Zoom Air with a 14mm thick back is really rare in recent years.

For the traction:

Kobe 8 System :A one-millimeter rubber outsole – combining classic herringbone with a snake scale-inspired traction pattern – uses less rubber than traditional outsoles for lightweight durability and excellent multi-surface traction. The rubber is soft and the pattern – herringbone – is awesome on practically any indoor court no matter the condition. If you hoop outdoors then you will want the XDR outsole option otherwise you will grind the rubber down rather quickly due to it being so soft.

 

 

For the Kobe AD PE: The outsole of this generation of Kobe AD is a real flaw in my opinion. The texture is more special and fine, but the depth is not enough, and the friction can be said to meet the qualified standards. Even more terrible is the wear resistance of this outsole. In the photo, the pair is a new product that has not passed through. The other pair of Kobe AD used to play the ball is probably after three games, and the outsole has obvious signs of wear. Plus its forefoot cushioning is also Lunarlon, which is also not very banned, so the service life of the whole pair of shoes is a serious problem.

 

Kobe AD used a real carbon plate this time, and the area almost filled the entire arch. It also directly ensured that it was difficult to laterally twist, which proved the torsion resistance of the shoes.

Kobe AD is printed with a brand new “Kobe Code” here. The toe positions of both shoes are “Enter Battle” and translated as “Entering the Battle”.

 

 

The four Kobe8 logos represent “Accuracy”, “Speed”, “Vision” and “Focus”.

 

 

The overall performance of the Kobe 8 is good, and the integrity of the shoe body has reached a very good level. The design of the two TPU stabilizers was also applied to the Air Jordan XX8 of the same year.

I remember that Kobe 8 also launched a “GC”, and the “Kobe 8 System GC” was also printed on the shoe box sticker. It is worth noting that even with the same color scheme, there are two versions of “GC” and not “GC”. The “GC” here stands for “Greater China”, which is the Greater China region that includes the three sides of the strait. There are two main differences: First, the “GC” version of the outsole is XDR wear-resistant material, the outer sole is thicker, and the grain is obviously rough.
The other point is very interesting. The “GC” version is followed by the complete scabbard logo, while the “GC” version is only the lower half of the scabbard logo.Please  check the picture as below :

 

Then this version of  of Kobe AD is like a blank blackboard. The designers can play freely and have different contents in different colors. The two followers of the Luozan PE are printed with two “10”s. The following is an explanation of Nike’s official website: “During the childhood, DeMar DeRozan from Compton is very respectful of Kobe’s purple gold color 8 and 24 jerseys. But today the Toronto Raptors The jersey number approved by the defender comes from Kobe Bryant’s jersey worn by the national team in 2008. From the opening ceremony in Beijing to the awards ceremony in 2008, Kobe’s pursuit of glory inspired the same Mamba spirit as his hero. So the No. 10 is not just a simple number for DeRozan. Kobe AD “Demar Derozan  PE” is designed to pay tribute to the jersey number that symbolizes the great man of basketball. DeRozan chased Kobe’s footprint and motivated him.”

 

 

Although I personally love the high-top design, after crossing the Kobe series, I have also changed my impression of the low-top. Although the low-top sneakers on the surface can make people feel insecure, it does not mean that the low-shoes are completely unprotected. Although the Kobe 8 is quite low in the whole series, it can stably lock the heel, making it very comfortable when jumping and landing.

 

Kobe’s kind of “can’t lose without competition” really touched me. Sometimes I think about it. If everything is as real as Kobe in life, how tired it is to live, it’s almost enough. In turn, I can think about it again. Most people on the earth since ancient times have chosen to “almost” again and again, and then slowly learn to escape their dreams, and finally they are willing to be mediocre.
This is not derogatory. After all, in today’s world, regardless of the industry, it is too difficult to climb the summit. It is difficult to imagine. Kobe used his struggle to prove to the world that as long as you put more effort and persistence, miracles and success will eventually emerge. The temperament of this role model, I think is the most charming place of Kobe.

Under Armour Curry 6 Performance Review,Whats The Newest that Bring ?

Can’t stop, won’t stop, the Curry 6 pulls from Steph’s marathon a month mileage on the court and his can’t be contained change of direction speed. As the Under Armour Curry 6  released .Ranking in the 95th percentile for average distance covered per game, Curry’s on the move game is all about endurance and change of direction. This isn’t lost on Steph nor his new shoes.all of fans was attract by the newest one , I bought the one too last week .

So what is the newest of the Curry 6  bring to us ? and whats different of the Curry 5 ?

We will check it today.

“Stephen Curry runs about 2.3 miles per game,” Leon Gu, Designer of the Curry 6, explains. “That’s why wanted to design a shoe that was more like a running shoe for him. We put full-length HOVR that gives impact absorption and energy return.”

HOVR cushion is used full length in the Curry 6 and feels like a great blend of court feel and cushion ,unlike the running version that is pure cushioned under-foot goodness. The built is knit while the traction was extremely tacky which it will be more still, but that was on the Warriors practice court so take that with a grain of salt until I can play in them on my usual courts.

For the traction: There is no word yet on how UA will balance the bounce HOVR offers with the court feel Curry needs. The shoe also appears to be built atop tooling similar to what was used in the Curry 5, although the lacing system this shoe uses looks new.

The colors used are made to resemble the brightly lit marquee of the establishment that brightens up the street at nighttime.

 

For the material , A black knit upper with tonal welded overlays is accented by vibrant hits of neon green, yellow, and orange on the tongue, eyelets, and outsole. For me, shoe also appears to be built atop tooling similar to what was used in the Curry 5, although the lacing system this shoe uses looks new.And the upper will be  comfortable , I really like it .

 

 

For the traction :  Yellow, and orange on the tongue, eyelets, and outsole. The traction actually really great , Herringbone is missing from the Curry line for the very first time, and while we love our herringbone,the grip also nice ,you can play in the clean court ,that is will be help in the game , but if you play outside ,that will be worn of the traction .The commercial is very exciting and hypes the program as a way to improve your game by learning insights from one of the best players in the game.

Compare with the Curry 4, The spiral pattern put in place offers multi-directional coverage for any move performed at any time. Linear coverage is fantastic and lateral coverage is handled very well too.When dust is present the tackiness of the rubber compound used attracts dust like a magnet. But all of performance is really great .I think the traction of Curry 4 is great too .

The shoe also appears to be built atop tooling similar to what was used in the Curry 5, although the lacing system this shoe uses looks new. An unique eyelet system that wraps around the heel, a sock-like ankle collar, and elastic pull tab on each tongue.

 

For the cushioning  :

Full-length HOVR cushioning has been added to the midsole for improved impact absorption and energy return. A split outsole design aims to provide Curry with superior traction for his fast-paced movements. When I heard about the Steph Curry Masterclass Basketball Training Program I was excited to learn more.  I’ve always respected his ability to outthink defenders and use skill to beat athleticism.  But I worried that the program would be short on fundamentals and instead be spending the majority of time teaching students how to do crazy one on one moves, which most players can’t execute well. So the cushioning really help a lot anyway .Curry loves court feel — enough to sacrifice cushioning for it — so there is no word yet on how UA will balance the bounce HOVR offers with the court feel Curry needs.

For me ,At first, when I tried it at the shop. I thought it would be better than  Curry 4. when I going home, I found that the cushioning part actually really similar , but after all, Curry 4 is  will be great , and the insole is the same as the two pairs of shoes. Thickness should be almost

 

Overall, the Curry 6 already upgrade a lot ,but also Curry 6 was followed the Curry 4, 5, it is a nice material and good look ,everything is great.

How about your idea ? please let us know below the comment .

First Look Under Armour’s newest creation Curry 6 ‘Fox Theater’

Last season, Curry ran an average of 2.41 miles per game per NBA.com/stats — a further distance than 95 percent of all other players in the league. So far this season, he’s covering an average distance of 2.59 miles per contest, the 12th-most in the NBA.For all the Stephen Curry fans out there, there’s some big news to report about a new shoe that’s dropping just after the New Year.The new signature shoe was showcased at an exclusive event at the Rakuten Performance Center Tuesday night, in which a select group of influencers and media were invited to get a first look at Under Armour’s newest creation—an iconic landmark in Oakland that reopened the same year the two-time MVP was drafted by the Golden State Warriors.

We will look at closely .

What I will say is that the shoe looks great in all the colorways shown and the themes behind them are for Oakland and The Bay. Being a Bay Area native, its a special thing to have a signature athlete that releases shoes with themes so close to home. Upon entering the room, the influencers found their seats, each adorned with jerseys featuring the number ’10’ in the front, and Curry’s number ’30’ on the back.

The colors used are made to resemble the brightly lit marquee of the establishment that brightens up the street at nighttime.

“This is inspired by the Fox Theater marquee, right down the street,” Curry explained. “This is something that’s very iconic in the city of Oakland, and I wanted to pay homage to how much the city of Oakland has embraced me.”A black knit upper with tonal welded overlays is accented by vibrant hits of neon green, yellow, and orange on the tongue, eyelets, and outsole. Branding on the low-top comes in the form of Curry’s SC30 logo on the lateral heel portion of the midsole, and Under Armour’s shield stamped on the tongue and heel.

 

 

I can see why LA fans are Kobe die-hards or how special Chicago natives must have felt seeing an L Train edition of the D Rose.The color scheme is like the beautiful appearance of neon lights on the outer wall of this theater after the night.

The colors of the shoe are intended to represent the various members of the Oakland community that Curry has come into contact with over his decade with the Warriors that, as he says, “have moved the needle in terms of representing Oakland on the local and national stage.”

The Fox Theater, which was located in the city center, opened in 1928. Although it was once suspended from operation and even faced the fate of being demolished, it was fortunately retained and re-enabled in 2009. It is now used for cultural and artistic purposes such as musical performances. As for why to pay tribute to the Fox Theater, except for the representative landmark of Auckland, the year before the theatre was restarted, Stephen Curry was selected as the Warriors. In the past 10 years, the Fox Theater was the center of artistic atmosphere. Stephen Curry has become the top star of the Warriors and has already brought the championship glory to Auckland for three times.

For instance, the entire bottom of the shoe is covered with a stucco pattern, a reference to the stucco-covered house in Charlotte, North Carolina in which Curry grew up and learned how to play the game of basketball as a child.

“Every time I put the shoe on, I’ll go back to memories of learning the game, to where I’ve gotten to now,” Curry said in explaining the material’s significance.

Directly upon the stucco, in the arch of the foot, is yet another Easter egg — a piece of textured, circular, yellow plastic, intended to represent the ceiling of Oracle Arena — the location of three NBA Championship banners which Curry helped raise.

 

Full-length HOVR cushioning has been added to the midsole for improved impact absorption and energy return. A split outsole design aims to provide Curry with superior traction for his fast-paced movements. Other subtle details include a midfoot shank plate on the outsole, unique eyelet system that wraps around the heel, a sock-like ankle collar, and elastic pull tab on each tongue.The built is knit while the traction was extremely tacky — but that was on the Warriors practice court so take that with a grain of salt until I can play in them on my usual courts.

All elements of the Curry 6 were designed with Curry’s specific needs in mind, from the new “Hover” technology that will provide cushion and stability, to the textured heel-to-toe plate on the shoe’s bottom that will aid in responsiveness and traction.

 

“Every time I put the shoe on, I’ll go back to memories of learning the game, to where I’ve gotten to now,” Curry said in explaining the material’s significance.

Directly upon the stucco, in the arch of the foot, is yet another Easter egg — a piece of textured, circular, yellow plastic, intended to represent the ceiling of Oracle Arena — the location of three NBA Championship banners which Curry helped raise.This is their  last year in Oakland, so they  wanted to pay homage to Oracle Arena … the place where I’ve been able to call home the last 10 years.

 

The next time Curry wears the 6’s, it’ll be at the arena they are intended to honor, and in front of the community they are dedicated to. We will be stay tuned .

Nike Zoom LeBron III CTK PE Close Look

 

The LeBron 3 has been absent from the market since its original run, but appears to be on its way back this year. LeBron James attended the Harlem’s Fashion Row fashion show in New York today, and before that he went to Christ the King Regional High School in Queens, which has been a sponsor of Team LeBron for the past 12 years at Nike LeBron. In the series, ‘CTK’ PE is offered to their players. Surprise is that LeBron James personally brought the Nike Zoom LeBron III ‘CTK’ reissue that was not released to the students in 2006.

We will look at it closely today .

Time  back to 2006, as a sponsor of the LeBron series, Christ the King High School students received a special gift, Zoom LeBron III CTK PE.

 

Every year, the LeBron series, including some Soldier series, will launch a different version of this color scheme. Unfortunately, most of them are supplied to players or Friends&Family versions. For  fans, it is difficult to got one .

 

 

Made for Christ the King High School in Queens, New York, the “CTK” LeBron 3 surfaced in 2006 and was only given to players

 

CTK on the inside of the toe. CTK is a basketball-based pre school located in New York.Another old standard for the toe. In the two pairs in the hand, the 7-yard workmanship is very solid, far more than the work of most of the hooks that have been in contact with these two years. 10.5 yards is a little bit worse for me.

 

When visiting Christ the King Regional High School in Queens in September, LeBron brought the 2018 version of the Zoom LeBron III CTK to the students.

 

 

At the same time, the NIKE SNKRS App was also launched in New York. Even if the price is not close to the people, but compared to the Sample version of the five-figure price, I believe this time will attracted by many fans.

 

Look at the texture of the sole. There is a James name “James” in the toe position. There is a Nike logo at the bottom of the sole. The workmanship is still very good.

 

 

The outdoor coverage is excellent. On tennis court-like surfaces the LeBron Zoom Witness’ traction is at its best; on asphalt courts the traction isn’t as good but still provides better coverage on the blacktop than it does on the hardwood. There are the Lebron logo as attached

The large-enclosed TPU from the forefoot to the heel provides a domineering position for the sneaker while providing protection.The Phylon midsole does provide lightweight cushioning but offers little to no impact protection, which is bad news for players who strike with their heel. Even though I’m a forefoot-heavy player and my heel barely touches the ground in motion, I still felt the lack of cushion in this area and it was enough to cause some discomfort after just a few runs

Overall ,LeBron 3 Replica midsole with a carbon plate and a full palm, without a foot, I can feel the comfortable.Look at James. He is a player with speed, strength, dexterity and explosiveness. The mid-bottom Phylon material, the large-capacity multi-chamber impact Zoom Air cushion and the Pebax heel cover make up the Zoom LeBron III Cushioning system,it is  really amazing .

Nike Air Max 97 Performance Review

 

Air Max 97 is the first Nike running shoe with a full palm cushion. Although the Air Max95 & 96 launched before it is also a breakthrough, but after all, it is a cushion of the front and rear palm shape, so when it comes out, it is visually full of technology. . Vaguely remember the curiosity when I first saw it on the counter shelf for the first time—-all the air cushion! Will it be a Q bomb? Will it be very comfortable?

Let is check it as below :

For the box , it is nothing special ,but the box with NIKE  logo .

There are some details as the box side .

Nike Air Max 97 actually affects the design of many Air Max series, such as Air Max98 and Air Max Deluxe in 1999. The midsole and outsole are completely copied 97, almost unchanged. 00-02 vaguely remember that the Air Max series is mainly looking for ways to change the shape, especially in 2002, the pair of midsole has several cylindrical air cushions impressive. But after the 97 years, Air Max didn’t buy a pair of Air Max, because I think they might be as hard as 97. Until the launch of Air Max 03, I first saw the air cushion, which was almost the same as the 97 in the midsole. I really refused at first. But the pearly upper that can’t resist it is too attractive, try to find that 03 to 97 is much more comfortable. Almost from the beginning of 03, the Air Max series has achieved my comfort as a Sneaker Head.

 

However, in the past two years, the Nike Air Max Day event, the resurgence of retro sports shoes, and the triple impact of the “near future culture” represented by functional clothing and “Ghost in the Shell” have had a great chance. The Air Max 97, which has been smashed into the cold palace by retro running shoes lovers, has returned to people’s sights. The Italian note, called “La Silver”, has become the most valuable replica of the Air Max shoes in the market in the past two years.

 

Less than a handful of buyers of the Air Max 97 Ultra 17 mentioned they have plantar fasciitis and said this sneaker puts a lot of relief to their feet.For me ,I am very satisfied reviewers said they recommend this product as it is both aesthetically pleasing and functional.

 

With all of the new technological developments that have been made since the original release of the OG model in 1997, Nike has been able to incorporate new technology with this update while staying true to the original design.

The signature 3M reflective tracks have been updated as well, with the iconic design element now being taped on the upper rather than embroidered.

 

 

Small details that may not be noticeable have been implemented, such as coring out some of the foam on the midsole and adjusting the pressure in the full-length Air unit by lowering the Psi in the Air bags.

There  are the details as below :

Nike has been able to incorporate new technology with this update while staying true to the original design. They created a new one-piece Jacquard upper to replace the original multi-layered piece.

 

The insole is great .it is comfortable.

There is the NIKE logo in the insole .

is 

The material able to construct a more breathable and lightweight shoe while maintaining the wavy aesthetics that made the original design so beloved.

 

The synthetic upper blocks dirt and water from easily getting into the shoe.

Using a powerful heel visual air cushion and forefoot ZOOM air cushion design, the player is more confident and confident in playing for the rebound and the strong slam dunk.
For the traction : volume of air in the midsole did not bother those who tried this shoe and said it even feel softer to the feet.

 

 

For the weight ,it is light actually .

 

Overall,the shoe is amazing.Nike came up with a minimalist rendition for one of its iconic models with the drop of the Air Max 97 Ultra 17. with  synthetic material on the upper, which retained the distinct reflective quality of this Air Max variant.

Originals EQT BOOST Performance Review

 

EQT was originally a relatively mature series of clover Originals. Later, some products changed to BOOST midsole and has been popular. If  we judged from the price for all of Adidas, I think the price maybe is  EQT BOOST≥Utral BOOST>PURE BOOST, then the  EQT BOOS and Utral BOOST are slightly different.

We will take a test for the EQT BOOST  today.

For the box ,it is really normal with the blue box .

 

Didas EQT is called Equipment. Just like literally, EQT pays attention to equipment performance and is committed to providing users with excellent sports feedback to help users achieve excellent sports performance. At the beginning of the EQT series, it was highly valued. Not only did it use Adi’s iconic Performance sports series of three-bar LOGO, but also the classic black-green and white color, and even the “The best of adidas” Slogan.

 

In 2017, Adidas added Boost technology to many classic styles in the EQT series, while EQT Support 93/17 is the masterpiece of all products. In terms of design, EQT Support 93/17 retains the EQT Support 93 asymmetrically designed heel frame, the burritos-wrapped tongue and the mid-foot portion of the iconic three-bar nylon belt. The difference is that the upper is upgraded to knitted or mesh material, and the inner and rear heel suede, leather and other materials. Of course, the biggest upgrade is the sole, a large piece of carved Boost outsole, which brings outstanding cushioning. Maybe to enhance stability.

Originals EQT BOOST 93/17 continues to use the Adidas “one shoe, N color matching” strategy, some of the upper material is different, if you are not cold, you can consider a variety of other color.

For the look : There are many similarities between Originals EQT BOOST 93/17 and EQT Support ADV, but overall it seems that EQT Support ADV looks a little more, but for consumers who like BOOST, this gap is basically not Things, EQT BOOST also has some color matching that looks like it’s still alive.

A whole piece of BOOST midsole, this material bears all the actions of Adidas in the middle and high-end shoes in recent years, even to the extent that the product line is divided according to the proportion of BOOST’s soles, the whole palm counts a file, close to the whole palm One file, half palm BOOST is another file. 600 yuan to buy the strongest BOOST? Adidas Adidas Originals EQT BOOST 93/17 Sneakers Experience.Among them, EQT BOOST is the most suitable material, all support and thickened BOOST midsole, which makes the feeling of walking on the upper foot more comfortable.

In order to make the appearance symmetrical, the heel has a long bulge), and there are many people who don’t like it. If you can accept the idea of Origins or try to identify it, then some exaggerated heels will become entangled, of course not. It is necessary to force yourself to be awful if your object doesn’t like it.

 

 

A whole piece of BOOST midsole, this material bears all the actions of Adidas in the middle and high-end shoes in recent years, even to the extent that the product line is divided according to the proportion of BOOST’s soles, the whole  counts a file, close to the whole  pieces .

Among them, EQT BOOST is the most suitable material, all support and thickened BOOST midsole, which makes the feeling of walking on the upper foot more comfortable

Besides the shape what really sets this shoe apart are the colours. The pink, black and white is such a slick combination and really stands out from other styles, not to mention its appeal to both sexes. I went for a size 9.5 which is a half size bigger than my last pair and this is just right for me, anyone looking for something a little different and bold in style this is your shoe.

 

Structural elements like the sock-like knit upper, suede paneling, and TPU-reinforced heel give the sneaker a sturdy fit. Elsewhere, the model features specific references to the OG EQT model with a reflective heel cup, runoff three stripe logo, and original lacing system. These past references are paired with a midsole made of Boost.

For the material : it is used the Knitted , you can also see the pores, in terms of breathability is still better than most shoes, of course, worse than the breeze series.Fine anti-slip bumps on the toe reinforcement.

 

 

The gray model uses a green insole. On the other hand, there is the ADV 91/17 (1991-2017). It uses the Ortholite insole, which is much better than other EVA insoles. The advantage is that the breathability is good. A suitable bevel is not easy to rub.

 

EQT BOOST’s full length midsole has larger single particles, and the measured foot feels softer. Originals EQT BOOST 93/17 uses a single-density midsole, while Utral BOOST series uses a layered midsole with different densities. Combined to achieve foot feedback, sandwich bulletproof glass is also the principle. The resulting Russian difference is that EQT is biased towards leisure, while Utral BOOST is more suitable for running.

 

3M’s Tag is still the imprint of 91-17. I don’t know if Originals is particularly particular special.

 

 

For the traction :

Feedback and rebound when running are not as good as UB. After all, there is a difference between a layered midsole and a single layer midsole. However, the back of the EQT BOOST really softened a new realm. The BOOST midsole is very thick and the density is small. The following traps will be deeper. There is no problem for running, but it is not as flexible as Utral BOOST.

Overall : The pair I went for were the EQT Boost  which were one of the first to get sold out and seemed to be the most popular. They have a great balance of style and comfort which give the Ultra Boost range a run for their money. The boost itself is thicker and bulkier looking than other ranges and features a much fatter “behind” too which looks great.

Nike Air Vapormax FK Performance Review

Nike debuted its Air Max sneaker in 1987, featuring a visible air-cushioning unit in the sole designed to absorb shock and—more importantly, some may say—look really cool.I bought a shoe to my. girlfriend .

Now we will look at it closely.

 

Most of the vapormax series of shoes use a white shoe box, and the hooks on the shoe box are also large.

 

The logo looks cool .We can see the same kind of  box side  too

There are the details of side

 

This latest silhouette features plush Air Max cushioning across the entire foot and Nike’s ultra-flexible Flyknit upper. The first thing I noticed when I put the shoes on was how comfortable they felt. I took a few bounces in them, and was also impressed by their light-as-a-feather feel. As I started my run, I was amazed by how bouncy they felt—it was as though I had lined up a bunch of trampolines and leapt from one to the next.

If you are a fan of Nike Air, are in the market for a new pair of kicks, and are cool with a bit of a splurge, then I would definitely consider these. They’re light, bouncy, and flexible—and they have 30 years of design innovation behind them. Sounds like a winner to us!

 

I took a few bounces in them, and was also impressed by their light-as-a-feather feel.

 

For the material :

Air VaporMax’s upper is much better. Flyknit’s one-piece woven upper and Dynamic Flywire’s dynamic flying line technology are Nike’s signature upper technology, so the fit and stretch of the entire upper is naturally feeling .

 

To be honest, the first time you wear Air VaporMax, you will feel a stiff feeling that you have never had before. Because there is no flat foam midsole transition, the feeling of directly stepping on the air cushion is still somewhat different. In particular, the air cushion of the forefoot is hard, and the exaggerated design of the large groove of the sole is sometimes suspected of stepping on a pair of football spikes. This strange feeling takes a while to adapt. After running through, Air VaporMax is lighter in overall walking feel when walking or running.

For traditional running shoes, because of the existence of the solid midsole, the supporting part is often directly visible to the naked eye. However, for Air VaporMax, the air cushion is invisible and runs for the wearer. Psychologically easier to feel insecure.

 

 

 

New VaporMaxes, like I’m being propelled forward a teensy bit—and there’s no strain or annoying rubbing anywhere. The only thing I’m worried about is whether something sharp will pop one of the air bubbles.

 

After I lace them up, I do a slow jog down to the mirror. It feels…bouncy, like jogging on a trampoline. “The idea is to help give you a spring forward when you run,” the Nike employee explains. It definitely feels different, but the more I test them out, the more I like them.

 

The first thing I noticed when I put the shoes on was how comfortable they felt. I took a few bounces in them, and was also impressed by their light-as-a-feather feel. As I started my run, I was amazed by how bouncy they felt—it was as though I had lined up a bunch of trampolines and leapt from one to the next.

 

Here are more details a s attached

 

The cushioning system is especially notable for its lack of foam—the traditional midsole is gone and the Flyknit upper sits directly on top of the Air bag. In removing a layer separating the foot and the sole, Nike hopes to address a design issue that’s been there for years.

As a running shoe, Air VaporMax is indeed supported, and the feeling of this support is also obvious during the actual running. In the long-distance test of one and a half horses, we obviously felt the obvious difference of the support of Air VaporMax with the change of distance. This support is the strongest and appropriate in the stage of 5km~12km, but after 12km, The effect of the support begins to decay, and the relatively independent air cushion also begins to have some unstable feelings. Especially for the runners who are used to the forefoot running, the feeling of the forefoot will become somewhat unassuming and elusive. The stability also has a certain degree of decline..

 

 

Air VaporMax has better support reliability than the forefoot. The classic horseshoe-shaped heel design has been proven to be the best sole shape in the traditional running shoes era. Therefore, the horseshoe-shaped air cushion naturally adds stability to the support .Compared with the cushioning effect of the Air Max cushion structure in the past, the newly designed full air cushion structure still shows the cushioning performance that can be used. We can compare the dynamic map of the following VaporMax air cushion and other midsole structures 

There  are more details as below :

 

The outer bottom of the VaporMax air cushion is a very hard friction granule. These parts that are directly in contact with the ground have superior wear resistance. From the wear level of the sole after 100 km, it can be seen that there is almost no outer bottom part of the sole. damage. However, this sturdy outsole will also bring another hidden danger. The too hard outsole will directly affect the grip of the running shoes on the slippery ground. If it is raining, it is recommended to wear it carefully.

The first thing I noticed when I put the shoes on was how comfortable they felt. I took a few bounces in them, and was also impressed by their light-as-a-feather feel. As I started my run, I was amazed by how bouncy they felt—it was as though I had lined up a bunch of trampolines and leapt from one to the next. Another standout feature: the grip. Surprisingly, those air bags on the soles really grab the ground.

 

Nike has retooled and reimagined the innovative design, releasing dozens of versions of the now-iconic shoe that’s beloved by sneakerheads and athletes alike. A variety of new Air Max shoes are now available on Nike.com, and on March 25—one day before Air Max Day—Nike will release a running shoe called the Air VaporMax.
