Summary of 3 Expert Reviews:

The Jordan Fly Lockdown is one of the pleasant surprises of 2018. At a list price of only $110, it's a very affordable shoe that provides top-notch performance. The herringbone traction picks up very little dust and works exceptionally well in all directions. The mix of Phylon and Zoom cushioning feels low and quick without sacrificing impact protection. The budget materials don't look great but work very well and provide very good lockdown. Overall, if you are looking for a good performance basketball shoe at a fair price, then you can't go wrong with Jordan Fly Lockdown!

The Jordan Fly Lockdown is a budget Jordan model that performs like a signature shoe. Works best if you need a stable, low-riding foot rocket.

The Sole Brothers
The cushioning is much softer and plushy as you would suspect from a Phylon carrier - we were pleasantly surprised!

The material is soft and breaks-in easily. Overall, the material is not very premium, but for a budget model it gets the job done!

The form-fitting upper flexes in all the right ways but holds solid where it needs to.

Wide and flat base with a super smooth transition and great mid-foot support. I would have like a more pronounced lateral outrigger.

Is Outdoor Use recommended?

fair
The Sole Brothers
The rubber is maybe a little soft, but it's also thick and the grooves are wide which works well outdoors.

fair
NightWing2303 [weartesters.com]
The rubber is on the softer side so they won't last forever outdoors.

If the court isn’t extremely rough, you should be good for a summer of play.

Width of the Jordan Fly Lockdown:

slightly narrow
The Sole Brothers

Size of the Jordan Fly Lockdown:

½ size large
The Sole Brothers
For me, Jordan Brand shoes tend to run a little long so I went down half a size.

As for length and sizing, definitely stay true-to-size unless you are super-wide.
