Nike Air Force 1 UPSTEP Performance Review

In the eyes of many sneakerheads, Nike Air Force 1 is one that can not  be surpassed by other sneakers. This year Nike also released a very aesthetically pleasing Tiffany blue color scheme and many fans claimed that they just couldn’t resist the temptation to buy a pair of Nike M Air UPSTEP. Well, I am also rather excited that I can finally get it.

At the first of the shoes, I knew that I’ve fallen in love with it. And I swear that I must have one. Fortunately, I eventually made it.

The Tiffany color schemes bring unprecedented visual effects which seems a “feast” to the eye. Its pure white shoe body embellished with Tiffany blue shoelace buckle and transparent Tiffany blue midsole is surely to attract a number of consumers. The combination of the two colors makes the shoe become the absolutely first choice for many people when buying shoes.

The classic white vamp is embellished with a Tiffany blue shoelace buckle, and the transparent midsole material can also be seen in the front of the toe, retaining the classic elements while injecting fresh elements into the shoe at the same time.

At the back of the midsole, there is also black “AIR” printed. And with the built-in sole cushion, we can also see the inside through the translucent midsole. To summarize, the overall feeling is very nice.

There is also the black Nike logo in the heel. Although there is the built-in air cushion, it is very thin a layer, offering no bouncy feeling if the wearer is very light. So some fans may turn their back away empty handed because they lay emphasis on nice foot feelings. 

For the upper, it is made of high quality leather. But some reviewers have remarked that the shoe causes pain in the foot because it is somewhat hard. Making allowance for the materials used in the upper, it is reasonable that it can’t fit your feet very well. It requires some time breaking in.

Resulting from the leather filling materials and the cushion setup, a single shoe weighs 373 grams, which is not very lightweight, but not so heavy.

Despite the a bit hard vamp, it is, on the other hand, quite supportive. The white leather made vamp can also wraps your foot tightly. After wearing it, you are sure to feel the tight wrapping prominently.

The grains on the vamp are clearly seen. The texture is very nice. It just feels soft and comfortable. The lines inn the midsole and the upper are simply very neat and even. As you can see that there are many air holes in the vamp, which guarantees overall ventilation.

During running or when there are movements, the vamp deforms prominently, which shows the shoe has certain softness. And the hard feeling fades away as you keep on exercising.

The multi-reinforced heel installed with a full sponge fill provides excellent support for the feet without visible deformation during movement.

The shoe has a very thick midsole while the outermost part is white rubber outsole. Easily, it can deal with all kinds of grounds rather than being torn and worn.

For the pattern, it is the classic and traditional one. The fore and the back part both have ring raised patterns, providing a multi-angle grip.

Although the cushion layer is thin, its performance is not bad however. On courts, I remembered that every step I made on it, it responded me instantly. In other cases, if I stepped heavily on it, the feedback it offers is more obvious.

But when we wear it for daily walking, the cushion seems to disappear which means the somewhat bouncy feeling felt on courts is no longer seen. Anyway, thanks to the not hard insoles, we won’t feel we are walking on something hard.


The texture of the shoe is really nice! I just can’t think of any better words to describe it. So to experience the awesome feeling you might as well have a try. On balance, it is a nice shoe that deserves your trying.

Nike Air Force 1 Low Retro CT16 QS Performance Review

As a pair of practical sneaker, Nike Air Force 1 plays an important role in the sneaker market. But as time goes by, it seems Nike Air Force 1 is now more popular as a pair of casual shoes — out in the street, it can be seen almost everywhere. A number of fans of the Air Force 1 Low noted that even after more than three decades, the shoe still effortlessly works in the basketball court. Therefore, we can draw a conclusion that  Nike Air Force 1, out of question, has an eye-catching appearance. It is shown by a great deal of data that most purchasers appreciated its iconic and stylish flair.

The Nike Air Force 1 Low Retro CT16 QS is legendary for it witnessed a third NBA championship of a team with 76 players in 1983. Then what about its performance? Let’s see…

This Nike Air Force 1 Low Retro CT16 QS looks super nice in the model’s feet, isn’t it? Its white and red color scheme is simple but elegant at the same time. The golden lace heads and gold lace buckles both add some delicacy for the shoe.  As the most original shoe of the AF 1 series, this white and red Nike Air Force 1 Low Retro CT16 QS is very dynamic.

The vamp is made of leather and so as to ensure breathability, the designer made in it, which can be obviously seen in the pictures. In the shoe tongue, there is a red embroidered “Nike Air” logo and the golden lace heads are carved with “1983” which is in homage to  Moses Malone. On the side of the shoe, the red Swoosh looks very appealing in a white background. And at the back of the midsole, there is an “Air” logo, showing that Jordan installs Air cushion technology.

The heel is a bit wide, giving you a feeling of stability. “Nike Air” is virtually seen everywhere in the shoe. Before testing it, I weighed the shoe, which is 445 grams. For those who have known or known of Air Force 1 should know that the shoe is never light. But for this one, the weight is in the middle level–neither too light nor too heavy. And after wearing it, still, you will feel your foot burdened.  A handful also noted that it is still a little bulky.

Another feeling after wearing the shoe is that it doesn’t wear very comfortably. The leather uppers with chunky rubber soles make the wearing experience not so nice, and the wearer feels very clumsy and not as flexible as wearing other styles.

For all there are many air holes, ventilation is just so so. You will still feel hot wearing the shoes .

And in terms of wrapping and support, I think I have a say because I have tested it many times. During my testing, because the toe part is a bit wide, the wrapping is relatively worse. And even if there are foams inside it, it can not offer perfect wrapping and for those wide footers, the feeling is especially prominent.

The whole shoe body is made of leather. Because of that, the shoe can offer us nice support. Even when there are action changes, the feet remain steady as well.

When making direction changes or emergency stops, the upper does not deform badly.

As for the heel wrapping, unlike the forefoot wrapping, it is not bad. Thanks to the thick materials added, the heel locks the wearer’s foot tightly.

As  Air Force fans, it is never surprising to see thick outsoles in  Air Force series. And after my long time testing, the Air Force 1 Low has also stood the test of time. The durability of this shoe has just greatly impressed many buyers.

The front and back part are relatively ringed and raised, providing excellent grip and a firm grip on the ground in a sudden change of direction. The edges of the outsole are also toothed to provide excellent grip when attacking from multiple angles.

The cushion of Air Force 1  are mainly 3/4Air-Sole units. The units feature thin but tough, and the cushioning effect is quite ordinary. Then what about the Air Force 1 Low Retro CT16 QS equipped with Air cushion? It is somewhat hard. Having no any powerful tech in it, the cushion is rather disappointing. When you step on it, you won’t feel much  bouncy feedback.

However, what comforts us is the springy and soft feeling can be felt when running.


Shortly after the model was released, it gained much attention from all over the world. The popularity of the shoe just sees no signs abating because people still buy this shoe. It has continued to be the shoe that win the hearts and adulation of millions of people through the years.

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW Performance Review

Founded by Virgil Abloh, OFF-WHITE can be said to be one of the most popular brands in recent years. THE 10 series, which is the accomplishment of Nike and OFF-WHITE’s cooperation, has launched many new shoes. In short, with respect to the shoe, here is information shown below, so just stayed tuned.


Firstly, let us just get a detailed look at the shoe box. The box is something of kraft paper. Simple as it looks, there is still something in it. As you can see, in the middle of the box writes “NIKE SWOOSH” .


At the side, there is a shoe tag attached in it.

The words printed at the other side show some information of this shoe, from which we can know the cooperation of the Off-White and Nike.


For today’s protagonist, I’ll first show you its appearance. The brand has released the shoe in numerous variations and collabs every single year and of course,  it can’t be an exception this year. Although released shortly after the original Hi-Top model was introduced, Nike Air Force 1 Low is outstanding regardless of others’ developing pace and has still won a great deal of popularity.


Nike Air Force 1 Low comes in various kinds of colorways. However, a disadvantage is that some online buyers are disappointed that some of the colorways are not what they really are. But for this one, it simply features black with the white Nike logo. Below the logo, there lays an” Air”. As a sneaker, not only is Nike Air Force 1 Low practical, but also suitable for daily outing.


The outsole is overall black——nothing special. The pattern of the outsole looks simple. There are some circular patterns in addition to sawtooth grains. It is the grains in the outsole that do a great help. To tell you the truth, in my initial play which took place on a quite smooth ground, had it not been the great grip, I would have run into much slipping. It hugs the floor super well!


Dust or not dust, it seems that there is no much influence; it plays as good as usual unless the court condition is really really bad. Besides, wiping once or so a month is necessary so as to keep it in good condition. At least, if not for grip, but keeping it clean makes you comfortable.


When it comes to the upper, it is made of nylon and mesh while the stitching part, it is glued. Equipped with so these new technologies, the upper definitely would not lack beathability. This large upper would wrap your foot stably, making your foot stay secure in the footbed.


The laces are made of hard nylon, so it is a bit difficult to tie them; but on the other hand, it is not so easy to loosen. As is seen, the laces are printed with “SHOELACES”. However, what amazes us all most is the fabulously designed tongue and the exposed foam material of the collar . Thanks to the laces with the large upper, you are getting your excellent wrapping.


If you buy this shoe, white laces are included, making it easier for you to match the shoe with your daily dressing. Personally,  white laces are more pleasing to the eye.


At the heel, it prints the “SWOOSH” logo and some basic data of the shoe.


What needs to be mentioned is that the shoe is a little heavy. But from my own perspective, definitely it wouldn’t be a deal breaker. For some people, maybe the weight is what they are seeking for. But the shoe impresses me most is its durablity. Noted by some fans that after more than three decades, the shoe still effortlessly works in the basketball court. Of course, it needs to be verified. But certainly as one of the best-selling athletic shoes, Air Force 1 Low’s durablity can not be bad. Like me, many buyers are also impressed by the shoe’s durability.


Made of rubber, the outsole is durable as well. And the spiral pattern in the forefoot offer the wearer enough flexibility.


At the rear of the tongue prints the iconic logo of THE 10.

Below are some data of the tongue of a shoe with size 42.


Every time I’d mention the fit. Yes, in my view, the shoe is good, but don’t take it for granted that it would meet every need you require. Air Force 1 Low fits me quite well——snug well. For most people, you can find the same effect like me; it also fits you well. It can wrap you and would not allow any slipping; it offers you enough flexibility when you need it and does not when you don’t need it. The fit is just superb!



As you all know, NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW is redesigned based on the NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW. The former offers some slight changes, but it continues to draw people’s attention and has won the hearts of most buyers. For such kind of a outstanding sneaker with splendid performance, its price is more than rational. Above all, it is now available in many retailers either online or offline. In summary, it is a shoe that deserves your trying.

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.
