The vamp is made of black leather and patent leather. The insole is white and outsole is semitransparent. It looks cool. The number of 23 is embroidered in the shoe heel. The Jumpman logo on the upper is changed from embroidery to metal stigma. The details looks great.

Comfort Level

The material of AJ11 is good. The insole is thicken foam material and 3/4 Air Sole. The cushion performance is great. It’s very comfortable.

The soft litchi leather and patent leather can guarantee the flexibility of vamp. It’s also not tight. But the air permeability of leather material is not good. It’s sultry.

The unit weight of US8.5=EUR42 is about 487g. The weight is moderate, not too heavy.


Fit & Support

As the vamp is leather, so we don’t need to worry about the supporting performance. The surrounding patent leather has great supporting performance and stability.

The mid-high upper design is filled with soft foam. It can fit the foot well. When breaking through, the shoe heel can keep on stabilizing status. It can offer ankle a great support.

After fastening the shoe laces, the chamois leather can drive the vamp to fit the foot.

Traction Performance & Abrasive Resistance

The stiff rubber of forefoot and rear sole is herringbone design which can offer excellent traction performance. The semitransparent rubber material is water ripple design which can offer multi-angle and all-around traction.

The abrasive resistance of semitransparent outsole is not good. But it has good thickness. The lifetime should be not bad.

Cushion Performance

With 3/4 Air Sole, the cushion performance of AJ11 is great. The soft foam on the insole is also comfortable.

When running, we can see the compression and resilience of sole. The resilience is obvious.

After jumping to floor, the body weight is concentrated on the feet. When the forefoot contact to earth, I can feel that the pressure of body is released. The cushion performance is excellent.

Overall, Air Jordan 11 “72-10” is a pair of hot-sale model. The supporting performance and fit of litchi leather and patent leather is excellent. And the cushion performance of AJ11 is also great. It’s very comfortable. The disadvantage is the bad air permeability. It’s not suitable to wear in Summer.
