The Configuration of NIKE ZOOM Freak 3

NIKE Zoom Freak 3 has been released. The price is cheap. Many guys hesitate to purchase Zoom Freak 3 and Kyrie 7. What about the performance of Zoom Freak 3? Let’s have a look at it today.

The design of Zoom Freak 3 is similar to Zoom Freak 2. But the appearance of Zoom Freak 3 is more complicated. It adds a piece of Verclo design on the forefoot. It uses reverse Swoosh logo as Freak 1 on the shoe collar.

From this angle of Verclo, it looks like Kyrie 7.

The shoe heel has pull-tab design which is convenient to put on. The pull-tab design looks good.

The shoe-tongue has Antetokounmpo’s personal logo.

The upturning design of insole is a characteristic of Zoom Freak series shoes. Giannis Antetokounmpo require good stability of the basketball shoes.

The wave ripple pattern outsole has great traction performance, it already have good feedback in the market.

Zoom Freak 3 VS Kyrie 7:

The overall performance of Kyrie 7 is great. Although it doesn’t have anti-torsion plate, but the strength of the shoes can offer good supporting performance to you when exercising. So I think that it can’t judge the anti-torsion performance of a pair of basketball shoes by with or without anti-torsion plate. Although it doesn’t have new conception, but the performance of Zoom Turbo cushion is good. Kyrie 7 is suitable for lightweight defenders.

Certainly, the upgraded ZOOM Freak 3 is great. The Zoom Freak series basketball shoes are always the same. But the design and configuration have been improved.

You can choose the shoes by your request.

What about the configuration of ZOOM Freak 3?

The rear sole of ZOOM Freak 3 has double-deck Zoom Air cushion, and the forefoot sole has fan shaped Zoom Air cushion on the previous ZOOM Freak series shoes. ZOOM Freak 3 has two Zoom Air cushion on the forefoot sole. The configuration of ZOOM Freak series shoes have been improved. The position of ZOOM Freak 3 air cushion is similar to Air Zoom BB NXT . It can offer faster feedback.

The shoe head position uses stitching design. The actual durability is great.

The outboard forefoot insole has widened design which improves the lateral supporting performance.

The PROPULSION TPU TRUSSTIC TPU stabilizing plate extends from forefoot sole to shoe heel. The big area of TPU stabilizing plate reduces the bending of metatarsophalangeal joints to avoid the unnecessary waste of energy and flank ahead.

The arch position also has TPU stabilizing plate which offers more strength to the insole.

The stabilizing plate also has a lot of ventilated holes which keeps the good air permeability.

The FLYTEFOAM lightweight insole technology keeps good cushion performance and lightweight. It’s said that the insole has a piece of GEL cushion. I expected the shape and size of the GEL cushion.

The outsole has flex grooves. The center vortex pattern can help the athletes to speed up.

The pattern of rear sole can offer more stability. With non-marking rubber, it can offer better traction performance.

The position of shoe-pad arch is upturning which can fit the foot well. The ventilated holes can improve the air permeability effectively.

The length of EUR42.5 shoe-pad is about 275mm.

The width of EUR42.5 forefoot shoe-pad is about 95.64mm.

The thickness of  EUR42.5 shoe-pad is about 5mm.

Overall

The ASICS GELBURST 25 LOW continues the style of GELBURST series. The appearance is simple and useful. It doesn’t have extra decoration. The weight is light and size is standard. The opening of shoe tongue is big, it’s convenient for putting on and taking off. The flat type shoelaces are not easy to loosen. It is comfortable. The insole is a little stiff in the beginning. After a period, you will feel the cushioning feedback obviously. The cushion performance maybe not good enough for heavy weight athletes. The insole is quite stable. The good air permeability can keep the foot dry.

Saucony Endorphin Pro Performance Review

The most popular running shoes are carbon fiber plate racing shoes. The Saucony brand is always my favorite racing shoes brand. It released its main product line–Endorphin series, which includes Pro series for racing, Speed series for training and Shift series for jogging.

Today we want to talk about the top-level racing shoes of Saucony –Endorphin Pro carbon fiber plate racing shoes. It released the brand-new Endorphin Pro 2 recently.

Endorphin Pro 2 has released two colorways, blue/white and black/white. It will release more colorways.

The shoebox is black and white grid flag pattern.

The grid flag of F1 game

The size is standard.

The right above view: The vamp is very thin. The vamp uses big area of grid flag pattern.

The outboard view: The diamond-shaped black and white lattice combination presents fast dynamic.

The heelpiece view

The view of inner side of shoes

The shoe head has crashproof design.

The outsole view: as a pair of racing shoes, the lightweight is the necessary requirement. So it uses simple outsole design.

Outsole design

The insole material is similar to BOOST (based on TPU material), combining with Saucony insole technology–PWRRUN PB technology (with built-in full-length shovel type carbon plate), and using the supercutical fluid foaming technology, it improves the durability of cushion. When running, it can offer more than 88% energy feedback. And its density is 40% lighter than EVA material.

The density of outsole material is big. The outsole rubber is only used on the important parts.

It still uses simple yellow outsole design on both sides. The groove of outsole has embossed SAUCONY logo.

The outsole design of forefoot sole is to improve the traction performance. So it’s V shaped pattern with two longitudinal lines. Other parts are hollow-out design. We can see the foaming material of insole.

The vamp is made of single layer fabric. The ventilated holes are re-designed.

The ventilated holes are special.

From this angle, the shoe heel is very thin.

It’s worthy to mention the design of shoelaces.

On the arch position, it adds a fixed antiskid belt. It has two crimson shoe buckles on both sides. With the flat type shoelaces, it improves the stability.

The Saucony logo on the side of running shoes uses hot film technology. The shoe-pad is still double-deck classic design. The fabric is anti-skid.

Overall:

1. The appearance of Saucony Endorphin Pro 2 is cool. It should be first pair of running shoes which uses the grid flag as main colorway. It’s very attractive.

  1. Excellent resilience. I can feel the resilience after wearing Endorphin Pro 2. I can get the enough feedback from the insole of Endorphin Pro 2. The feedback is obvious.
  2. The vamp is very thin. It’s light. The EUR42 Endorphin Pro 2 is only 213g.
  3. It’s very comfortable. Endorphin Pro 2 balances the fitness and air permeability well. It has good fitness and air permeability.
  4. The performance of Endorphin Pro 2 is great, but the price is a little too high.

Jordan Zion 1 Performance Review

As the first pair of Zion Williamson, Jordan Zion 1 get highly attention after being exposed. We want to talk about the advantages and disadvantages of , Jordan Zion 1 with you today.

Advantages:

  1. It uses full-length Air Strobel and forefoot Zoom air cushion.

Although the location of Air Strobel on NIKE and Jordan brand is mid-low end, it’s soft, but not very resilient. It’s too soft, so I can’t exert the force well. It will effect the starting speed. But the forefoot Zoom air cushion solve this problem. If you use forefoot to exert the force, it will improve the sluggish feeling, but it will also need to drain a lot of fatigue. Overall, the configuration is special, the experience is good.

  1. Good traction performance

The outsole of Jordan Zion 1 is ice blue crystal outsole, and it has partial rubber. It has excellent traction performance most of times. You don’t need to worry about the traction performance on clean indoor court. But as you know, the traction performance of crystal outsole will decline after absorbing the dust.

  1. Good fitness and supporting performance

The forefoot vamp of Jordan Zion 1 is made of thin reticulated. The rear part uses hot-melting material. It fits the foot very well.

The middle part of vamp is very tight. The front two shoelaces couples should be dynamic shoelaces. The width of shoe head is moderate. Unless your foot is wide or high instep, Jordan Zion 1 should be able to fit you.

Disadvantages

The location of Jordan Zion 1 is wired. It seems that Jordan Zion 1 is unsuitable to Zion Williamson. The soft Air Stobel is also unsuitable to the playing way of Zion Williamson. The design is not very strong.

Overall, it’s hard for me to exert the force in the beginning, so I’m disappointed at it. But after changing to use forefoot sole to exert the force, I think Jordan Zion 1 is very comfortable, the feedback also can be fast. Normally, the inner lines basketball shoes are heavy, especially for Zion Williamson, so many guys don’t have the expectation for the weight of Jordan Zion 1. But actually, Jordan Zion 1 is lighter than many defenders’ shoes, even if comparing with the brand-new NIKE GT low type shoes. The light weight is a surprise.

Nike Kyrie 7 Performance Review

We have deconstructed the Kyrie 7 and share the technical information of Kyrie 7. Today, we want to share the performance review of Kyrie 7 with you.

Suited Court: indoor court or outdoor plastic court

Suited Players: The defenders whose weight below 85kg.

Suited Foot type: normal size, if your instep is high, it’s better to have a try before purchasing.

Vamp

Will the lighter vamp effect the strength? The answer is not.

Comparing with Kyrie 6, Kyrie 7 don’t use the leather and Velcro. But the 3 layers of composite vamp can offer good supporting performance. We can feel the tenacity of vamp when making lateral movement.

It can satisfy the request of Kyrie.

Meanwhile, the green stiff material is link of insole and outsole. It increases the supporting performance of vamp.

It’s surprised the design of dynamic shoelaces. After fastening the shoelaces, it will fix the forefoot well.

Insole

Although it still uses the same Air Zoom Turbo and full-length Phylon, but it still has big difference with Kyrie 5 and Kyrie 6.

The feedback of air cushion is more obvious. I can feel the feedback of air cushion obviously when putting on Kyrie 7. It doesn’t need time to break-in.

The more important part is the low center of gravity.

It not only has excellent feedback and it reduces the center of gravity.

The rear sole still uses Phylon. It’s not stiff. The cushion performance is enough for me. But it’s better not choose it if your weight is over 85kg.

Outsole

Many guys doubt the abrasive resistance of Kyrie 7.

I can’t offer the exact judgement for the abrasive resistance of Kyrie 7 now. As I only play 5 basketball games till now. I haven’t found the abrasion on the outsole. And the depth of outsole is thick.

The traction performance of Kyrie 7 is reliable. It can grip the ground well.

Integrality

The anti-rollover performance of Kyrie 7 is improved. As it has low center of gravity, the forefoot sole doesn’t have anti-rollover design. But it’s more stable than Kyrie 5 and Kyrie 6. It can satisfy the multi-directional traction performance.

The rear outsole is wider.

Kyrie 7 don’t have built-in arch supporting plate, the internal support is not good enough. If it has a extending stiff material from the arch part like Kyrie Low 2, the anti-torsion performance will be better. If you want to play high-strength basketball games, it’s better to put an arch supporting shoe-pad in it.

Score

Fitness of vamp: 9

Supporting performance of vamp: 8.5

Feedback of forefoot sole: 8.5

Cushion performance of rear sole: 7

Anti-torsion performance: 6

Anti-rollover performance: 8

Traction performance: 9.5

Overall Protection: 8.5

Overall supporting performance: 8.5

Overall stability: 8.5

Overall scores: 82

Overall, comparing with Kyrie 6, Kyrie 7 is a pair of shoes which is lighter, has lower center of gravity, better cushion performance and better stability, but the ani-torsion performance is reduced.

For defenders, Kyrie 7 maybe not the best choice of basketball shoes, but it’s still worthy for you to consider it.

Insole: The AIR STROBEL cushion brings excellent feedback. The big TPU supporting plate improves the stability of insole.

Overall: PG 5 still uses the AIR STROBEL cushion as the insole technology. By adjusting the material of vamp and insole, the fitness, stability and comfort level have been improved. But the appearance is not attractive.
