Every summer it seems Jordan Brand,adidas and other brand will release some new sneakers , this summer the Jordan Brand also debut a new styles of shoes —Jordan Fly Lockdown . From the Jordan FBI to the XVI.5 to the Super.Fly series, some part of the brand still as the fashion line ,how about this kind new shoes ?
We will check it closely .
This Jordan Fly Lockdown sports the shield Jumpman logo at side is the classic logo .but there one version of Jordan Fly Lockdown’s logo was from the Air Jordan 14 ‘Last Shot’ The shields were inspired by the logos on Michael Jordan’s Ferrari and they’re also featured on the insoles of this sneaker.
The synthetic textile upper of the Jordan Fly Lockdown also resembles carbon fiber which only accentuates the theme.
For the lace system , it is different compare with other styles ,
it will be easy to adjust , but I don’t know why the lace system will be through the tongue ?
For the material : it is used the a woven textile upper that is very reminiscent of the Jordan XX9. For this material has been popular on the Nike sneakers .It also uses a forefoot Zoom unit that feels like the oval unit found in the LeBron 15 Low and PG 2.
For this material ,it is durable and stability .it is unlike the leather material that will be fold.then the ventaltion is great .I can fee the air can through the shoes , especial for the summer .
For the traction :the traction is nice , the outsole sports a modified herringbone with some pivot circle patterns along the lateral side. and this kind of pattern did a great with the XDR model . The rubber isn’t too hard, but the pattern is spaced wide so dust collection shouldn’t be a problem. The lateral midsole sculpting may be the craziest I’ve ever seen — the Phylon wings on the heel and forefoot overlap and extend like a roof over the sides.
For the cushioning . it used the Zoom unit that performance well .when we playing , after impacting , the tightly stretched fibers inside the pressurized air unit quickly bounce back into shape, providing a super responsive feel and improved awareness of the surface you’re playing on.
We can see the details as below :
The shoe upper material itself is a combination of woven weaving. Therefore, after a large number of frictions, playing,seems the material will be a crack .
For the grip , it is nice ,but if you play in the oustside dusty court, it is just so so .
The Nike Air cushioning will immediately return to its original shape, ready to protect the body against the next impact force. It showed from last picture .
For the supporting , it is just so so . Compare with the Jordan shoes , it is not enough . if you need more supporting , this is not the best option .the heel part is thiner .I don’t think it will be better protect the heel .
Then the weight ,It is lightweight material shoes .it is just only 390 g for the size EUR44.Though it is not the lightest ,but its flexibility have been not effecting the weight at all .
Overall : Jordan Fly Lockdown is nice ,but priced at $110, the Jordan Fly Lockdown comes right in at the PG 2, Dame 4, and CP3.XI price point, making it an affordable option for season play or pickup ball.But the cushioning and material is great, then the supporting just so so .
