Air Jordan XI “Space Jam 2016” Performance Review

Space Jam (the movie) is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year so the timing couldn’t have been any better to bring back this iconic and possibly the most popular colorway of the Air Jordan 11. Staying true to the original, this Air Jordan 11 features a black mesh upper with a a higher-cut patent leather mudguard.

We will check the performance review today.

For the box, the box is nice , the 23 number words  is special .


For the material :

Jordan XI uses a large patent leather with an upper nylon upper.

The patent leather isn’t quite as strong as it could have been if it were a bit thicker but all in all, the materials performed pretty much on par with the original and previous Retro versions.
After tightening the shoelace system, you can feel the middle part and the upper part of the shoe body can effectively fit the feet, but the lower part of the patent leather material is relatively hard, even if the shoelace is fastened, there are still some parts in the toe cap.


For the supporting :

The patent leather material is relatively hard, this feature makes the Jordan Xi reaction have a good performance in terms of support. Especial when I am moving fast , the feet are still stable in the shoe,  it is have been not  happen overly deformed.
The Carbon Fiber Stabilizer from Jordan XI provides good resistance to torsion and stability in actual combat.
However,I think the traction is more higher ,so I will be more lace the balance , and the prominent part of the Outrigger on the outside seems not help . Although this has no effect in actual combat, it is mentioned.




The Carbon Fiber Stabilizer from Jordan XI provides good resistance to torsion and stability in actual combat. It help a lot anyway.


For the traction : The overall traction was very solid with all things considered. Usually when you have a translucent outsole you lose traction when dust or debris is on the court but thankfully the Air Jordan XI have solid rubber traction pods located in the heel and forefoot. And the  translucent outsole can not easy to keep .also it was tight to bite the ground, whether it was side-to-Side (film ) or before and after, the field can be tight to bite the ground.
Besides, the sound of these shoes is quite raw, and personal likes this!


The blue of jumpmen is amazing.Also we can see the detail of the heel part.


For the Reaction : the lower bottom of Jordan Xi leads to a less ideal sense of sticker and reaction.
From the bottom of transparency can see Jordan Xi carrying a large blockbuster of carbon fiber stable pieces, the benefits behind the back will be mentioned, but such a large blockbuster of stability has a certain degree of influence in the field of the field, and the shoes are bending, let the shoes be a little The feeling of slow and half-Phai, not with the moves of certain times (entry).



For the cushioning :

Jordan XI uses the full length Air Sole with Phylon as the cushioning system.and it could feel a clear sense of subsidence with air sole in the field, we can felt more  a good cushioning but no feeling of shaking  when landing, but the heel is a little too soft, causing a long time to wear Jordan XI, the heel will be sore. However, with a pair of sneakers 22 years ago, the slowdown is truly amazing.
