Today we want to talk about the performance of MIZUNO WAVE RIDER NEO 2. The MIZUNO fans are familiar with WAVE series. The WAVE insole and wave type plate offers good stability which is always the advantages of WAVE series. MIZUNO WAVE RIDER NEO 2 uses the brand-new ENERZY insole and G3 outosle which offers the new experience to the runners.


At the first sight of MIZUNO WAVE RIDER NEO 2, it’s totally different with my impression of MIZUNO running shoes. The socks type vamp of MIZUNO WAVE RIDER NEO 2 is thick. The unit weight is about 205g-208g (my size is 25.5cm). I’m surprised at the weight.

The vamp has many ventilated holes.

The insole of MIZUNO WAVE RIDER NEO 2 uses the brand-new ENERZY material WAVE design. It offers better resilience and keep the good stability. The forefoot sole uses brand-new G3 outsole which can grip the ground well.

I doubted the stability and air permeability of knitted socks type vamp. But after wearing, the doubts have gone. Although the socks type vamp don’t have the shoe tongue, but it still fit the foot very well. The thick vamp can offer good stability, and the air permeability is also excellent. MIZUNO WAVE RIDER NEO 2 improves the vamp design. It changes to the unidirectional knitted design to improve the supporting performance and stability.

The new G3 outsole can grip the ground well, not matter the PU track, asphalt road or sidewalk.

The brand-new ENERZY insole is soft and has excellent resilience. It’s stable when running. It’s easy for the runners to break-in.

Overall, I think that MIZUNO WAVE RIDER NEO 2 is suitable for most of road conditions. We recommend to the runners who want a pair of running shoes which can offer stability on mid-long distance.


  1. The improved knitted socks type vamp has excellent performance on the air permeability, fitness and stability.
  2. The brand-new ENERZY WAVE insole offers comfortable feedback.
  3. It’s suitable for daily training or tempo running.

But it’s unsuitable for intermittent fast speed training.

New Balance FuelCell RC Elite v2 Performance Review

As a marathon amateur, I’m familiar with New Balance brand. Its outstanding foot sense and great workmanship is impressed. But the NB running shoes are always similar, it’s lack of audacious design philosophy. When I get the brand-new New Balance FuelCell RC Elite v2, it break my invariable perception of NB style. The appearance is nice.


It’s amazing at the first sight of New Balance FuelCell RC Elite v2. The vamp is covered by 3D printing NB logo. The visual impact NB logo is the light spot.

The vamp uses knitted material. It has good resilience and air permeability. It’s also light. The visible big ventilated holes help to keep the feet cool. The light material also reduce the weight of the shoes.

The unit weight of EUR42 New Balance FuelCell RC Elite v2 is 214g. Although it’s a little heavier than last generation, but it’s still very light.

The shoe tongue is very thin and it’s distributed with ventilated holes. The shoe tongue can fit the instep well. The flat shoelaces are not easy to fall off.

The insole of New Balance FuelCell RC Elite v2 uses FuelCell. It’s thicker than last generation. The thickness of rear sole is 39mm and the forefoot is 31mm, the drop height is 8mm.

New Balance FuelCell RC Elite v2 has full-length carbon plate. The middle part uses hollow-out design. It reduces the weight. And we can see the carbon plate via the hollow-out design. The stiff carbon plate combines with the soft and resilient insole perfectly. They can cooperate well.

The outsole uses integrated rubber. It’s used for marathon. And it has reinforced design on the area where is easy to wear and tear.

The inner shoe-pad has small holes for air permeability and drainage function. It’s soft and resilient. The shoe-pad also looks nice.

The shoe tree of New Balance FuelCell RC Elite v2 is wide. The thin vamp fit the foot well. It won’t restrain your foot.

It also has reinforcement and support on the important position such as shoe head, shoe heel, shoe upper and shoelaces holes. So the shoes won’t be too soft due to the thin vamp. The cushion performance and resilience of New Balance FuelCell RC Elite v2 is good.

The built-in carbon plate can offer the impetus, and it has high request for the runners. It’s top-level racing shoes for the elite runners. If you pursue the speed and comfort level, you can choose it.

The FuelCell insole is the top-level technology of New Balance. It offers the excellent cushion performance and can offer good resilience. The thickened insole can help it to exert its performance.

There are many details of New Balance FuelCell RC Elite v2 which is helpful for running, such as the reflective stickers, the crashproof U shaped support on the shoe head, and hollow-out insole etc.

Advantages of New Balance FuelCell RC Elite v2:

  1. It has top-level configuration and nice appearance.

Air Jordan XXXVI PF ‘First Light’ Performance Review

One of the most anticipated basketball shoes of the year is Jordan brand series. The inspiration of the brand-new AIR JORDAN XXXVI ‘First Light’ (AJ36) is from ultraviolet ray. AJ36 also contains the elements and details of Air Jordan VI.

Testing Information:

Model: AIR JORDAN XXXVI ‘First Light’

Size: US10.5

Testing Court: Outdoor cement court

Air Jordan XXXVI- Detail

From the preliminary sketch of AJ36, we can find the elements and details of Air Jordan VI.

The vamp of AJ36 is thin and ventilated.

The AJ36 keeps the traditional elements. It keeps the classic ‘AIR JORDAN’ and ‘NIKE AIR’ of Air Jordan VI on the shoe tongue and shoe heel.

The JUMPMAN logo on the outsole echoes the outsole of AJ6.

The hollow-out design of outsole echoes the visible Air cushion of AJ6.

It absorbs the elements of AJ6 and uses the innovative technology to make the brand-new AJ36.

  1. Eclipse Plate 3.0

The Eclipse Plate technology was firstly used on AJ34. And AJ35 expands the Eclipse Plate structure. Now AJ36 still use the Eclipse Plate technology.

The Eclipse Plate technology of AJ36 is designed to be lighter and better.

  1. The simple and durable Leno-wave vamp

The vamp of AJ36 uses brand-new Leno-weave vamp. The knitted vamp can reduce the weight, and also can guarantee the good supporting performance.

  1. It uses full-length ZOOM AIR STROBEL cushion. It also adds a piece of ZOOM Air cushion on the forefoot sole.
  2. ‘∞’ on the shoe heel represents the infinite possibility of the new stars.
  3. The shoe box design of AJ36 is special.
  4. Do you know what does the spiral symbol on the insole of AJ36 represent? Does it represent the 6 champion rings that MJ got in his career?
  5. The buckle on the shoe tongue has 36 dots.

On Court Performance-Upper material & Support & Fit

The brand-new AJ36 uses wear-resisting Leno-Weave material. And it’s matched with flexible shoe tongue.

AJ36 vamp uses brand-new Leno-weave. The knitted way of Leno-weave is intertwining two pieces of warp yarn and a piece of weft yarn.

The knitted vamp not only can reduce the weight, but also keep the good supporting performance. I’m satisfied that AJ36 has moderate lining on the shoe tongue, shoe collar and shoe heel. The lining improves the comfort level, fitness and supporting performance. For the size, you can choose the standard size. The shoe heel is suitable for most of people. The vamp has high air permeability. It’s flexible, light and tough. When playing basketball, the shoe heel is not easy to loose, it fits the foot very well. The shoe heel of AJ36 has built-in TPU.

AJ36 is middle type. It has enough foam surrounding the shoe collar, which can offer the support to ankle.

On Court Performance-Midsole

AJ36 uses full-length ZOOM AIR STROBEL, ZOOM Air cushion on forefoot sole and Eclipse Plate 3.0 technology. I’m satisfied at the configuration of the insole.

Eclipse Plate 3.0 technology has big change comparing with previous ones. It needs time to break-in the previous ECLIPSE PLATE.

But the Eclipse Plate 3.0 of AJ36 has obvious change. It solves the previous problems. And it can offer better stability and anti-torsion performance when exercising. It cooperates with the ZOOM Air cushion very well.

The ZOOM AIR STROBEL cushion is built-in design, so it becomes a part of the shoes. It adds a extra ZOOM Air on the forefoot sole. So you can feel the good resilience of ZOOM Air after wearing.

The hardness of AJ36 insole is moderate. And the appearance design of insole surrounds the vamp, it has upturning design on the middle position, which can improve the supporting performance and anti-torsion performance.

The shoe-pad of insole has many holes, which not only has good air permeability and  skid resistance, but also reduce the weight.

On Court Performance-OUTSOLE

The outsole of AJ36 uses traditional herringbone pattern. The outsole area of AJ36 has enough space and can reinforce the balance and supporting performance.  The traction performance of AJ36 is better than my expectation.


The AJ36 is very light. The LENO-WEAVE vamp has high air permeability, translucency and suppleness. The shoe collar has enough foam padding which can offer good support to ankle. You don’t need to worry about the overall supporting performance of AJ36. AJ36 can satisfy the request of flexible players. It can keep the good flexibility and supporting performance. But I’m doubt the durability of the vamp material. The adjusting Eclipse Plate technology can offer good stability and anti-torsion performance when playing basketball. It can satisfy the request of most of people. The insole configuration of full-length ZOOM AIR STROBEL and ZOOM Air cushion on forefoot sole can offer great resilience and cushion performance. AJ36 is not only light, but also has good stability and resilience.

BROOKS GHOST 14 Performance Review

I have purchased 7 pairs of BROOKS jogging shoes before, and I have run more than 500km each pair of shoes. Recently, I purchased a pair of BROOKS GHOST 14 which improve the insole technology and vamp a lot.

The vamp of this pair of BROOKS GHOST 14 is designed by black. There is a piece of short silver reflective tape on both sides of shoe head. Both sides of ankle position have reflective irregular pattern. The insole uses black, gray and white camouflage color. The outsole is black. This pair of BROOKS GHOST 14 is camouflage limited model. If you like colorful model, you can choose other colorways. The unit weight of US8 BROOKS GHOST 14 is about 263g. I’m surprised at its light weight, as its location is cushioning shoes.


  1. 3D elastic printing technology: It can improve the resilience and structure of vamp. The shoe heel uses 3D elastic printing technology to reinforce and stabilize the feet.
  2. It uses big holes ventilated mesh fabric: The vamp uses big holes mesh fabric to increase the air permeability and reduce the weight.
  3. It uses reflective pattern on the vamp. The reflective design will improve the safety when running at night.


  1. BROOKS GHOST 14 uses full-length DNA LOFT insole cushion technology: DNA LOFT is made of low density and lightweight material. It can keep light weight, good cushion and resilience.
  2. The insole uses sectional type crash pad: the sectional type suspension is convenient for running faster and smoothly.
  3. The optimized insole sandwich structure will make you run more smoothly.


The outsole uses wear-resisting rubber. You don’t need to worry about the abrasion.

I have tested the BROOKS GHOST 14 on 3 kinds of different road conditions: PU track, pitch road and sidewalk.I think that BROOKS GHOST 14 is more suitable for the runners whose speed is in 6mins. It will give give play the insole technology of BROOKS GHOST 14 well. Of course, if you like running slowly, it’s also suitable for you. As the weight is light, the air permeability and ductility of vamp is good, it’s comfortable when jogging.


BROOKS GHOST 14 uses full-length DNA LOFT insole which not only reduce the weight, but also keep the good resilience. The 3D elastic printing technology improve the resilience of vamp and reinforce the stability. The improvement of BROOKS is very obviously. More and more runners choose Brooks series running shoes.

But BROOKS GHOST 14 don’t have stabilizing support. It’s unsuitable for running on rugged road condition, it’s easy to sprain the ankle. If your footstep is unstable, it’s better to choose BROOKS DRENALINE GTS 21.

ASICS GT-2000 9 VS MIZUNO Rider 25 Performance Review

For most of runners, ASCIS and Mizuno are two familiar brands. They are famous due to their jogging shoes with high supporting performance and excellent cushion performance.

Recently, I bought ASICS GT-2000 9 and Mizuno Rider 25, and ran about 20km. I found that their difference is big.

Firstly, I weared ASICS GT-2000 9 which is the brand-new GT-2000 series shoes. Comparing with previous series, ASICS GT-2000 9 has big improvement on the flexibility and lightweight.

ASICS GT-2000 9 uses full-length FlyteFoam material. After adjusting, the comfort level is better than the GT material.

The arch part uses Trusstic which can offer good supporting performance to the arch and reduce the affect of strephexopodia.

For cushion performance, except the visible GEL on the shoe heel, it’s said that the forefoot sole of GT-2000 9 is also added with GEL, which improve the cushion performance of forefoot sole.

After running 20km, the ASICS GT-2000 9 is adequate for most of speed ranges and road conditions. Most of the ASICS series jogging shoes have excellent traction performance. Even if the outsole pattern of GT-2000 9 is adjusted for better flexibility, we don’t need to worry about the AHAR outsole.

I weared the Mizuno Rider 25 on the second day. I though that the location of Rider and GT is almost the same, but the result is surprising.

The durability of ASICS GT-2000 9 and Mizuno Rider 25 are almost the same. Both of the ASICS AHAR material and MIZUNO X10 material are top-level. You don’t need to worry about their durability.

The difference of ASICS GT-2000 9 and Mizuno Rider 25 is the material. Rider 25 uses the brand-new material of MIZUNO–Enerzy, which is comfortable new material. It’s elastic and tough. When testing, it seems that the cushion limitation of Enerzy is higher than U4ic X.

With the Wave plate on the shoe heel, Rider 25 combines the material absorbing and mechanical absorbing perfectly. It’s nice for the runners with heavy weight.

Although the location of Rider 25 and GT-2000 9 are jogging shoes, but it’s obviously that the speed ranges of Rider 25 is bigger than GT2000 9.

GT-2000 9 is a pair of classic and excellent jogging shoes. At the assigned speed at 5-7 mins, GT-2000 9 can make the runners feel very comfortable, and it can also offer excellent protection.

Rider 25 not only can satisfy above the advantages of GT-2000 9, you can also speed up the assigned speed in 5mins. It’s more comfortable.

Although their location is almost the same, but the limitation is different, GT-2000 9 is a pair of perfect jogging shoes.

But Rider 25 not only satisfy the jogging request, but also can satisfy the request of some speed training.

After releasing the GELBURST 25 in the beginning of 2021, finally the GELBURST 25 Low is released recently.

GELBURST is one of the few ASICS basketball shoes currently available for offering high type and low type basketball shoes. Since 1997, GELBURST series already have 25 pairs of shoes.

GELBURST 25 Low releases three different colorways (white & blue, white & red, black & silver). Their common point is the TPU supporting plate.


GELBURST series offer high type and low type basketball shoes. For the ASICS present popular basketball shoes, except that GLIDE NOVA FF and GELHOOP use the same sole, GELBURST series shoes should be the only series which has high type and low type basketball shoes in present ASICS series The main difference of GELBURST 25 high version and low version is the shoe collar. It reduces the height for more flexible space. It uses full-length FlyteFoam technology with GEL on the shoe heel. The low version also has 7 couples of shoelaces. The two shoelaces holes on the midsole position are made of leather, and it extends and connects with the insole. It can lock the foot and offer lateral support. The GELBURST 25 has good cushion performance, fitness and flexibility.

The characteristics of GELBURST 25 Low:

1.The insole uses FlyteFoam technology with GEL on shoe heel.

2. The leather shoelace rings connect the vamp and insole, which improve the fitness and supporting performance.

3. The TPU plate of shoe heel and TWISTRUSS SYSTEM of insole offer anti-torsion performance and stability.

The middle part of outsole distributes ventilated holes to improve the air permeability.

The outsole uses N.C.RUBBER which is wear-resisting.

The unit weight of men’s size US9.5 is about 380g.

The GELBURST is born for the request of air permeability and lightweight. The mesh fabric vamp and the ventilated holes on the outsole are the always the characteristics of GELBURST series basketball shoes.

My favorites 3 parts of GELBURST 25 Low:


ASICS get the inspiration from engine cooling system. It has ventilated holes on the sole and shoe-pad. So the air permeability is good.

  1. The inner side of shoe collar has wearproof leather.

ASICS cover synthetic leather on the inner side of shoe collar where is easy to wear and tear. It extends the using life.

  1. The vamp is combined type

After passing so many years, GELBURST still guarantee the good air permeability, except the ventilated holes of sole, the mesh fabric material also keep the good supporting performance and air permeability.

MIZUNO WAVE SKY 5 & WAVE SKY NEO 2 Performance Review

The MIZUNO WAVE SKY 5 and MIZUNO WAVE NEO 2 are very comfortable running shoes. They are designed for completing the running games. The configuration including insole, vamp and outsole are not for racing. It’s worthy to consider them for long slow distance.


The unit weight of MIZUNO WAVE SKY 5 is not light. But after wearing, it has the agravic feedback.The shoe heel of MIZUNO WAVE SKY 5 has ample sense of depth. The 32mm insole is decorated with pretty blue lines.

The vamp is made of one piece of Smooth stretch woven, which will reduce the oppressing sensation when running. The embossing Run Bird logo has stitch to reinforce to offer the supporting performance to both sides of vamp.

The shoe tongue is made of ventilated mesh fabric. The shoe heel has WAVE SKY 05 mark.

It uses the top-level MIZUNO ENERZY material to make the MIZUNO WAVE SKY 5 insole. The substrate insole MIZUNO ENERZY with built-in MIZUNO ENERZY CORE and the surrounding insole foam to make the softness, supporting performance and resilient FOAM WAVE insole.

Except the optimization of insole material, the outsole pattern of WAVE SKY 5 is more fearless than WAVE SKY 4. The outsole of shoe heel part uses wear-resisting X10 rubber material. The grooves of forefoot sole cooperating with insole improve the flexibility.


The MIZUNO NEO series shoes uses socks type vamp as its characteristics from 2020. And WAVE SKY NEO 2 combines its function and material and brings the popular running shoes’ design. The high cushioning insole is made of several materials. It based on the WAVE SKY NEO and adjust the vamp, the shape looks more concise.

The insole and outsole continues the structure of WAVE SKY NEO 1. The round outsole pattern offers great traction performance. The red part is the MIZUNO ENERZY CORE material.


Both of MIZUNO WAVE SKY 5 and MIZUNO WAVE SKY NEO 2 are comfortable running shoes. The insole constitution is similar. It has high cushioning characteristics. From the design of outsole, WAVE SKY 5 is more flexible than WAVE SKY NEO 2. But WAVE SKY NEO 2 offers more support if standing or walking.

The socks type design of WAVE SKY NEO 2 is higher than WAVE SKY 5. And the insole is also higher. Both of the forefoot sole height is 24mm, but the shoe heel height of WAVE SKY NEO 2 is 34mm, it’s 2mm higher than WAVE SKY 5. So the cushion performance WAVE SKY NEO 2 shoe heel is better.

Model: Converse All Star BB JET

Court: Outdoor epoxy

Hight/Weight: 181cm/81kg


I have tested the Converse All Star BB PRO in the beginning of 2021. It has advantages and disadvantages. Recently I purchased the brand-new All Star BB Jet which has Zoom Air cushion with speed plate in the insole. Today I want to share its performance review with you.


The appearance design of Converse All Star BB JET is similar to PUMA basketball shoes. The design is concise and casual. It’s suitable for daily dressing.

Traction Performance (Turning & Urgent stopping): 8 scores

The outsole is divided to 3 parts of geometric figures. The indentation is deep. The traction performance of Converse All Star BB JET on the outdoor court is excellent. The outsole is not easy to absorb the dust.

Cushion Performance & Feedback: 6 scores

It uses fan shaped Zoom air cushion on forefoot sole and hexagon Zoom air cushion on the rear sole. It has a piece of Speed Plate nylon fiber supporting plate on the midsole, which is similar to the flight speed of AJ32. But the supporting plat of AJ32 is above the Zoom air cushion of forefoot sole and rear sole. But the forefoot fan shaped Zoom Air cushion of Converse All Star BB JET is above the supporting plate of insole and close to the outsole. It needs strong pressing to tread the sole, then you can feel the feedback. The cushion configuration of Converse All Star BB JET is more suitable for frontline who are heavy and like running. If your weight is light, you can’t feel the regency of speed plate.

Fitness: 7 scores

Converse All Star BB JET uses full-length inner sleeve. The padding is not very thick. The shoelaces have two kinds of system. The starting speed and feedback is good. But due to the affect of fitness, the overall oneness is not good enough. If your feet is thin, it will be a little empty for you. If your feed is standard or wide, you can choose the standard size. But if your feet is thin, it’s better not to choose it.

Stength/Stability: 8 scores

The vamp is made of stiff nylon canvas material. It doesn’t have obvious outrigger, but the outline of outsole is wide and the traction performance is good. The anti-rollover performance is above average. The shoe heel has built-in cup-shaped stabilizer. We guess that the speed plate in the insole can improve the anti-torsion performance.

Overall: The appearance of Converse All Star BB JET looks like a pair of defenders’ basketball shoes. But after testing, we are sure that Converse All Star BB JET is a pair of frontline’s basketball shoes. But the cushion is not good enough for frontlines, and the center of gravity is too high for defenders. The overall protection and cushion performance is suitable for most of people. If you don’t have high request for the basketball shoes, you can try it. And the price is not higher than All Star BB EVO.
