Air Jordan 36 Review

Pros:
Absolutely no issues at all with the traction
Cushion feels amazing
Cons:
The outsole can be a tiny bit unsteady
They fit narrow and snug

Performance of the Air Jordan 36:

The Air Jordan 36 continues the recent trend from Jordan brand and picks up right where the last two models left off. The traction is phenomenal. It performs well on both clean and dusty courts. All reviewers agree that the cushioning used in the 36 performs amazingly, but they also agree that the Air unit protruding from the outsole is unnecessary. The fit is snug and narrow, so if that's not your cup of tea, consider sizing up. Materials are slimmed way down this year. They make the shoe lightweight without sacrificing much in terms of comfort and durability. The surprisingly strong upper and the outsole materials wrapping upward towards the midsole make the support in this shoe solid. Being the latest signature shoe in the lineup, the Air Jordan 36 delivers and is yet another high-quality performance basketball shoe.

The Jordan 36 is one of my favourite shoes to play in right now. They're lightweight, they have a nice bite, and I love the cushion setup.

The latest entry in the Air Jordan line is a strong performer, just like the previous two models. The full-length Zoom Air Strobel is amazing. The traction is outstanding. Materials are durable. There really aren't any downsides to this shoe.

Jordan brand continues to deliver with the 36. The traction is consistent. There's plenty of impact protection, and the materials make it incredibly lightweight. It's a strong performer overall.

On clean courts, the traction has a phenomenal bite. It picks up dust on dirtier courts, but it still performs well regardless.

The cushioning setup uses a full-length Zoom Strobel feels bouncy. It also offers a decent amount of compression and impact protection.

The full-length Zoom Air Strobel is an improvement on last year's model. It feels like a combination of the cushion on both the 34 and the 35. These feel springy and bouncy.

For lateral containment, your foot is not moving off the footbed at all. There were also no issues with stability and support.

Lockdown is surprisingly good. Overall, the support is good from the midsole up. The only potential issue is the protruding shape of the air unit on the outsole.

If you don't like a tight fit, I would suggest going up half a size. If you have a wide foot, you might want to consider going up a full size. Try them on in-store when possible.
