Unboxing: Adidas Adizero Adios Pro 2「Sonic Ink」

In recent years, it is popular to use thick sole for the running shoes in the market. Recently, the world athletics association published that the thickness of running shoes’ sole can’t exceed 40mm.

The adizero adios Pro 2 has been released. Let’s have a look at it today.

The adizero adios Pro 1 helped the London marathon elite runner to break the record last year. So the adizero adios Pro 2 keeps the excellent configuration. Many marathon champions weared the adizero adios Pro 2 to attend the November New York marathon.

The appearance of adizero adios Pro 2 looks nice comparing with adizero adios Pro 1. The Sonic Ink colorway is using bright flourescent light green and indigo blue.cccc The adizero adios Pro 2 uses super flimsy Celermesh 2.0 environmental protecting material, which keeps the lightweight, air permeability and supporting performance. The key point is the Adidas’ s environmental protection spirit.

We can see that the Celermesh 2.0 vamp is very thin in visual. It reduces the weight and improve the air permeability. The weight of running shoes is important to the runners.

The thickness of adizero adios Pro 2 is about 39mm. It hasn’t exceeded the international standard 40mm.

adizero adios Pro 2  uses LightstrikePRO double-deck insole structure with EnergyRods propelling system, and it adds a piece of carbon fiber plate on the shoe heel. The LightstrikePRO is Adidas present strongest cushioning foam. The energy feedback and resilience of LightstrikePRO is much better than other material.  The EnrgyRods and carbon fiber plate inject full energy to the shoes.

 The shoe heel of adizero adios Pro 2 also has small variation. It’s easier for the wearers to put on.

The shoe-pad also has punching design which improve the air permeability.

The outsole uses the Continental rubber with lightweight rubber. It keeps excellent traction performance and abrasive resistance.

Although we just tried adizero adios Pro 2 and haven’t tested it, but we can feel the excellent foot feeling of adizero adios Pro 2 even walking. The sole is soft and resilient due to the cooperation of LightstrikePRO and carbon fiber plate. The starting speed is fast. I believe that the excellent configuration of  adizero adios Pro 2 will help more people to break the record.

Adidas D.O.N. ISSUE #3 Performance Review

Utah Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell is one of the new generation of young starts taking over the NBA stage. In NBA for 4 years, with his strong offensive ability, he not only became the core of the team, but also became an important member of adidas. This year, Adidas has released the third pair of signature shoes for Donovan Mitchell, that is, D.O.N. ISSUE #3.

Design Philosophy:
As the star of Utah Jazz, Adidas specifically use the team’s classic colorway purple as the first released colorway of D.O.N. ISSUE #3. The entire shoes is covered with graffiti art from Mitchell’s hometown New York city. And Mitchell is the spider-man of basketball court, the shoe tongue is printed with his exclusive spider logo which is made of reflective material.The side vamp has sawtooth pattern TPU which represents the spider sense. And the designers also printed FEARLESS/DRIVE & GRIT/HEART on the elastic tape above the instep. The shoe heel has a piece of triangle leather label which is printed with some numbers and address. These numbers and address represent Mitchell’s hometown New York’s 3 famous basketball court-Rucker Park, Dyckman Park and Crack Is Wack Playground.

Comfort Level & Cushion Performance:
It’s the first time that D.O.N. ISSUE series shoes use Lightstrike technology on ISSUE #3 to replace the Bounce insole technology. Lightstrike material is lighter than Bounce. Lightstrike is more solid than Bounce. But the resilient feedback of Lightstrike is better than Bounce. The cushion performance is also great.


The vamp of D.O.N. ISSUE #3 uses multi-layers mesh fabric with thick foam to offer comfort fit to the foot, but it adds the weight. The elastic tape on the shoelaces position can offer the fitness to the foot. This design is suitable for the players whose instep is high or foot is wide.

Supporting Performance & Flexibility:
D.O.N. ISSUE #3 is a pair of low type basketball shoes. So it won’t affect the flexibility. It won’t limit the movements. The thick Lightstrike insole won’t affect the court feel, but it can balance the court feel and prevent the ankle eversion.

D.O.N. ISSUE #3 adds big area of TPU support. And the TPU extends to the sides of vamp. The sawtooth pattern TPU with outrigger design can offer excellent anti-rollover performance. And the shoe heel also has TPU to reinforce the fitness.
But after a period of time running, the fitness of D.O.N. ISSUE #3 will reduce. It needs to fasten the shoelaces tightly to reinforce the fitness.

Durability & Traction Performance:
The outsole of D.O.N. ISSUE #3 use two kinds of materials, that is, durable rubber and transparent rubber (crystal sole). The designer uses durable rubber on the position of forefoot thumb and shoe heel where is easy to wear and tear, and uses transparent on the other position. The overall durability is just ok.


The outsole has embossed spider web pattern. The traction performance on indoor court is excellent. It can grip the ground well.

Overall:
As the signature shoes of Mitchell, the price of D.O.N. ISSUE #3 is cheap. The appearance is attractive. The Lightstrike insole has excellent cushion performance. Although D.O.N. ISSUE #3 may not fit most of the the players, but the high cost performance and special colorway design are attractive.

The Performance Review of Nike Air Zoom G.T. Cut

NIKE released G.T. (Greater Than) series basketball shoes which means to surpass the past. The G.T. series released 3 models, including CUT, RUN and JUMP. The first released NIKE AIR ZOOM G.T. CUT is the only one pair of low type basketball shoes of this series. Today, we want to talk about the performance of NIKE AIR ZOOM G.T. CUT.

Comfort Level & Cushion Performance:

The insole of NIKE AIR ZOOM G.T. CUT takes Drop-in React shoe-pad and full-length Zoom Strobel. The shoe heel adds horse hoof type Zoom Air cushion to offset the impact force when jumping to the ground. The configuration of insole is soft and flexible. It’s very comfortable when running. The ZOOM Strobel is under React shoe-pad.

The vamp is made of mesh fabric with elastic material which is similar to the material of diving suit. The shoe tongue fit the vamp very well. The React shoe-pad has anti-skidding pattern to reduce the foot moving in the shoes. If your instep is high or the foot is wide, it’s better to choose half size bigger or one size bigger.
Supporting Performance & Flexibility:

Due to the insole configuration, the weight of NIKE AIR ZOOM G.T. CUT is not light. But it doesn’t affect the starting speed. The shoe heel has Zoom Air unit. The forefoot sole is low, and the shoe heel is higher, so it will push the wearer to move forward. And NIKE AIR ZOOM G.T. CUT is low model and its vamp is soft, so the overall flexibility is good.

The supporting performance is not bad. The TPU film from front end to shoe heel can help to fix the foot when moving. The React shoe-pad has upturning design to fix the foot in the middle position. The dilated outsole can also improve the stability. And these details can make up the disadvantage of soft vamp.

Durability & Traction Performance:

NIKE AIR ZOOM G.T. CUT outsole uses the ECG configurated pattern with different density. The traction performance on outdoor court or indoor wood floor court is excellent. Even if the outsole uses transparent material, the traction performance on outdoor cement court is also good. But as the material is soft, it needs time to test the abrasive resistance. We suggest to use it on indoor court.

The vamp doesn’t add with any wear-resistant coating to deal with high-strength abrasion. But the shoelace holes have embossed thin coating and the holes are colloid.

The shoebox design is ←Z→. The wrapping paper has the details like N>KE, >>>>>> and BEYOND etc.. As NIKE AIR ZOOM G.T. CUT relates to speed. The NIKE AIR ZOOM G.T. CUT uses different cushion configuration. React shoe-pad absorb the impact force. The Zoom Strobel can offer jumping feedback. It can keep the balance of flexibility and comfort. The traction performance is also excellent.

Overall, NIKE AIR ZOOM G.T. CUT is a pair of basketball shoes which is suitable for defenders, lightweight players and nimble players.

NIKE Air Zoom G.T. Run Performance Review

Testing Information:

Model: NIKE Air Zoom G.T. Run (DA7920-001)

Size: US10.5

Testing Court: outdoor cement court

Today, we want to share the performance review of Air Zoom G.T. Run with you.

On Court Performance-FIT:

We suggest to choose the standard size. It has suitable space for the toes. And it has padding on the shoe heel position. But the shoe tongue is half socks type design, and it’s too thin, so it effects the comfort level. The material doesn’t have much extensibility. The shoe-pad is made of NIKE React. As it’s socks type design, it’s a little hard to put on. So it has pull-tab design on the shoe heel.

On Court Performance-Upper Material & Upper Support:

The aim of Air Zoom G.T. Run is pursuing lightweight. The vamp is mainly made of nylon mesh fabric. And the inner layer has a layer of thin material as support. The outer layer has hot-melting plastic pattern. The vamp is thin, that’s why Air Zoom G.T. Run is light. Although the thin nylon vamp has good air permeability, but it sacrifices the fit and comfort level. I felt that the vamp is stiff in the beginning. The shoe tongue is also very thin. After fastening the shoelaces, it will press the instep. Air Zoom G.T. Run is a pair of mid type basketball shoes. It can cover the ankle position. But the foam padding around the ankle is not much, so the ankle support is not good.

NIKE REACT shoe-pad

After taking off the React shoe-pad, we can see the big Nike Zoom Storlble on the forefoot sole.

On Court Performance-Midsole:

The insole of Air Zoom G.T. Run uses NIKE React shoe-pad, NIKE ZOOM STORLBLE on forefoot sole and full-length React and NIKE ZOOM Air unit cushion.

The React shoe-pad is soft and has the anti-skid performance.

When putting on the Air Zoom G.T. Run, the feedback of Zoom air cushion on the forefoot sole is obviously. The full-length React insole also offer good cushion performance. But it uses both Nike Zoom Air and React cushion technology, the insole is a little too thick.

On Court Performance-Outsole:

The outsole uses wave type pattern. When testing it on outdoor cement court, the traction performance is good. The outsole also has a lot of punching holes, which is for reducing the overall weight. The outsole is made of XDR. I have tested it on outdoor cement court, so we don’t need to worry about the durability.

NIKE Air Zoom G.T. Run is a pair of basketball shoes with obvious advantages and disadvantages. It’s similar to running shoes. Air Zoom G.T. Run achieve the lightweight standard of running shoes. It has good air permeability and excellent cushion performance. But as a pair of basketball shoes, it require high supporting performance. So I think that Air Zoom G.T. Run can’t satisfy the players’ request of high supporting performance. And the thin shoe-tongue is also an obvious disadvantage for me. If you need run and has high request for the cushion performance, the configuration of Air Zoom G.T. Run will give you some surprise.

Nike Pegasus Trail 3 GTX Performance Review

More and more people like hiking. And there are more and more shoes for hiking in the market. This time, we tried Pegasus Trail 3 GTX. Many years ago, I have tried Pegasus 36 Trail, which is the upgraded version of Pegasus 36 and its vamp is not easy to be dirty. The insole and big swoosh logo of Pegasus Trail 3 GTX is a little similar to Pegasus 38. But their practicability is totally different. Pegasus Trail 3 GTX uses the GORE-TEX material for waterproof effect.

Cushion Performance:

For hiking, the comfort level of the shoes is very important. The insole of Pegasus Trail 3 GTX uses full-length NIKE REACT cushion. We can feel the softness of insole on stiff ground. After walking more than 4 hours, I still haven’t felt tired.

Supporting Performance:

It’s better to fasten the shoelaces tightly if it’s mountain road. As the material of shoe collar is soft and it doesn’t have extra padding, the support to ankle position is not good.

Although the outsole of Pegasus Trail 3 GTX uses durable rubber, but when stepping on the stones, the center of gravity will change. If it can uses Flyplate on the insole like ACG MOUNTAIN FLY LOW, it will be more stable.

Traction Performance:

The outsole uses RS001 rubber. It can handle most of road conditions. Except the slippery stones, the overall traction performance is great.

The overall performance and appearance of Pegasus Trail 3 GTX is great. It’s unable to resist this model.

The GORE-TEX version is waterproof. If you like the shoes with good air permeability, you can choose the normal version.

The small piece of rubber on the shoe head can protect the toes. Pegasus Trail 3 GTX is not only suitable for daily dressing, it’s also suitable for walking through the cities, mountains and plains.

BROOKS REVEL 5 Performance Review

My deep impression to Brooks brand is for running. I’m preparing for the second full marathon of this year, so I purchased Brooks Revel 5 for training. I want to share my reviews of Brooks Revel 5 with you after running about 70km.

Unboxing:

The shoebox Brooks Revel 5 is also blue. It also prints the picture of the model and colorway on the shoebox, so that you can find the shoes that you want to wear today easily.

Vamp:

Brooks Revel 5 uses upgraded Fit Knit vamp, which is the biggest difference of Brooks Revel 5 with Brooks Revel 4. Although the vamp is made of knit, but the inner layer is the half inner sleeve which is made of elastic ventilated material. So the foot won’t touch the knitted vamp directly.

The flexibility of Brooks Revel 5 is good. The knit and elastic material is soft. It won’t press the foot when bending. The forefoot is protected by plastic material. The stability of Brooks Revel 5 mainly comes from the logo on both sides of vamp. After fastening the shoelaces, it can guarantee the comfort level and stability.

Insole:

The BioMoGo DNA technology insole is elastic. The height of forefoot sole is about 20mm, and the height of rear sole is about 28mm. The unit weight is about 250g. It’s light and elastic in the beginning. After running about 30km, the feedback is different, but the cushioning performance is still good.

The insole doesn’t have built-in stabilizing plate, Brooks Revel 5 is not stiff, but it also keeps the rigidity.

Outsole:

The outsole pattern of BROOKS REVEL is arrows. The black rubber covers the whole outsole.

After running about 70km, I haven’t found obvious abrasion. The abrasive resistance is good.

Testing:

  1. Recover Run

As it’s a pair of new shoes, I firstly choose the recover run for testing Brooks Revel 5. The soft vamp is comfortable. It’s comfortable when running.

  1. Interval Run

Frankly, Brooks Revel 5 is also suitable for interval running. The stable outsole can grip the ground well. The feedback of BioMoGo DNA insole is fast. The drop height is only 8mm. Brooks Revel 5 can satisfy the request of interval running.

  1. LSD Run

As I already had the experience of recover run and interval run, I started to try the LSD run. It’s easy for me to run about half and two hours. The air permeability is good.  Comparing with BROOKS HYPERION ELITE, for the resilience and supporting performance of insole, Brooks Revel 5 is more suitable for middle and short distance running.

Overall:

The appearance and performance of Brooks Revel 5 is good. The Fit Knit vamp is comfortable. The BioMoGo reminds us the foot feeling of NIKE REACT. It’s thinner and lighter. The feedback of Brooks Revel 5 is faster. The traction performance and durability is great. But shoe-pad is easy to skid. You can choose the standard size or half size smaller. You can have a try on physical store before purchasing.
