Air Jordan 1 Performance Review

The Air Jordan 1 Mid 2017 Retro is set to release at select Jordan Brand retailers soon.Jordan Brand released those two shoes as a pack 10 years ago. This means that if you wanted one, you also had to buy the other.For the Air Jordan 1 Mid New Love actually nice , the court feeling is amazing .

Today we are talking about it.

The first game during which this issue popped up was played in the Madison Square Garden on the 18th of October 1984. The colorway was considered rebellious, back in the day because it didn’t match with the players uniform or his team members shoes.  Air Jordan 1 Mid New Love represents Michael Jordan’s love for motorcycle racing. It is made out of leather in a Yellow (Varsity Maize) and Black color scheme. The 2017 version comes with a new feature on the upper.

For the box, it is normal but nothing special.


There are the details in the tongue .

Jumpman branding on the tongue, two set of laces (Yellow and Black), and a White midsole and Yellow translucent outsole round out the look of the shoe

For the material :Full leather uppers and a rubber midsole and outsole that follow last version.The main thing is that the type of leather used allows for added strength and durability which can be a nice feature to have.That is not bad . though it add some weight for this material.

For the cushioning : I went over previously and it’s pretty much a no brains,cushion was not good. if you are like the great cushioning , maybe it is not enough for you.

For the traction:Instead of coming with a jeweled Wings branding on the ankle, Jordan Brand opts to give it a more traditional look by replacing it with a stamped/painted on finish

For the supporting :it is also not great…

For ventilation , it is nice for the  perforations featured on the toe as well as a nylon tongue for some ventilation, even if just a little.


Overall,Nike didn’t do raffles and neither is this sneaker a limited release. However, they have been playing it smart by stocking the Banned 1‘s in small batches across various platforms both online and offline. India has seen 4 restocks since September already.”New Love” also  attraction a lot of people.
