Luka Doncic’s Jordan Separate Zoom Air Is Certainly A Must have + Performance Review

Spread the love

Sneakerheads, if you don’t know who Luka Doncic is by now, you will very soon. The now 22-year-old Slovenian phenom was drafted third overall by the Dallas Mavericks in the 2018 NBA draft and has been turning heads with his outrageous skills on the court. Off the court, he’s been catching attention too – some time ago he debuted a brand new pair of  performance shoes from the swoosh brand-  the Jordan Zoom Separate Zoom Air. Needless to say, they’re pretty epic. If you’re looking to ball like Luka, or just want some fresh sneakers to add to your rotation, then you’ll definitely want to get your hands on a pair of these bad boys.  I came across a pair of the Zoom Air Separate a few days ago and I was pleased with its aesthetic. Oftentimes, folks want to jeer at non retro Jordan sneakers but this pair has what it takes to become a fan favorite. Here’s a quick look at it, see video below

Introducing The Jordan Separate Zoom Air

Zoom Air Jordan Separate Performance Review 

The shoe was named after Luka Doncic’s ability to create space on the floor with his deadly step back move. It features a multi layered textile upper made up of knit materials, mesh, fuse overlays and neoprene. The easy to wear sneaker has an appealing aesthetic and is comfortable for all-day wear. The midsole is where the magic is. According to Nike, 2 different types of foam in the midsole are fused together and designed to give you an optimal mix of cushioning depending on where your foot needs it. Here’s a quick evaluation of the shoe based on data collected from various reviews.

Cons

While the Jordan Separate Zoom air provides excellent cushioning, there are a few disadvantages that have been noted. Firstly, The outsole was prone to picking up dust and debris, which could then be transferred to the floor, creating a slip hazard. Secondly, some users have found that the heel cushioning is insufficient, leading to discomfort during extended wear. Finally, rear support issues have also been reported by some wearers.

 Verdict

Overall, the Jordan Separate Zoom air is a great shoe for those looking for excellent cushioning, comfort and durability. However, those with specific needs ( heel strikers) may want to keep these disadvantages in mind before making a purchase. I’ll recommend the Zoom KD 14 for those looking for other options.
