In May of 2018, it was rumored that two new Jordan 11 colorways would hit retail before the holidays. Then Fall/Winter ’18 Air Jordan retro news continues to come down, with the latest leak being a “Platinum Tint” Air Jordan 11 set for October.Now ,the Air Jordan 11 ‘Platinum Tint’ finally released .
I am so luck that I got this one last Saturday. For two days testing , here I will share the performance review with you .Here we go
The 11 is one of those models that looks good or at least decent no matter the colorway. The actual shoe is a much lighter grey (more like off-white) and the red accents are everywhere. This Jordan 11 will use the traditional black inner lining, although the addition of red piping between the ballistic mesh and heel panel is anything but traditional.
Actually it look cool on the foot .It is red piping adjacent to the Jumpman logo, a Sail colored midsole, and a milky opaque outsole. The most surprising aspect of this release is the removal of its most significant detail , the patent leather mudguard. Instead you’ll find a suede-like finish that matches well with the casual.
Using Sail mesh on the upper while Platinum Tint is applied to the patent leather on the overlay, so this kind of material actually will be better.But I feeling it look same with the last model.I felt that the patent leather isn’t quite as strong as it could have been if it were a bit thicker but all in all, it is kind of like the Air Jordan 11 Retro ,the materials performed just so so . But it look fashion with a little red color .Actually the white color shoes has been not keep easily as usually .
For the ventilation,I think it is not great .he material is breathable so that’s going to scores some points but its noticeably not as ventilated as something like the Air Jordan VI, which I still feel has the best ventilation out of the entire lineup.But the shoe look cool, it is best fit for the winter.
For the supporting : I think the supporting is nice .The Carbon Fiber adds a lot of support along the entire base of the foot, not just the arch, and the overall fit provides you with the extra reassurance you’d want or need, and the material also will provide the supporting too .
For the traction: The traction followed last model. it is used the translucent traction ,also we can see the carbon Fiber .However the clear sections are nice and sticky straight out the box, which is good and bad depending on court conditions. However, I played on well-maintained courts in addition to debris ridden floors and the Air Jordan XI held up perfectly fine.
Cushioning part is quite great. With the lightweight Phylon and full length Air unit in place, cushion is solid as well, the performance also great too .
Overall, This look good, feel good and they play well on top of that. I hoped the quality wouldn’t obstruct my opinion on their performance and it honestly hasn’t. it is still one of my personal favorite shoes.
