PROS:

  • Very durable materials
  • Good traction

CONS:

  • React Cushioning is disappointing
  • Slightly bulky

Summary of 5 Expert Reviews:

The suede upper of the Jordan Super.Fly 2017 is a throwback to the times before basketball sneakers were made from high-tech materials. While some critics really like that, others prefer more lightweight and modern materials. What reviewers can agree on is the very good traction and slightly disappointing React Cushioning system. Overall a very durable and supportive shoe which will work great for bigger guys.

The Jordan Super.Fly 2017 was an absolute delight to ball in. If you’re okay with the firmness of React cushioning and enjoy a low profile on-court ride, this has you covered with traction, lockdown, and stability.

Outside of the lacking cushioning the Jordan Super.Fly 2017 is so close to being perfect it’s kind of scary,

The Super.Fly 2017 is a decent shoe, but I would rather go with the Nike Hyperdunk 2017 as it comes with the same technology but more premium materials and better-feeling cushioning.

It's a good performer made for bigger dudes. Very durable because of the strong materials and hard rubber. However, I wouldn't recommend them for a shifty guard.

Some things are good, some aren't. This shoe doesn't quite get my approval.

The traction needed a little break-in time but was excellent after that.

After breaking it in it gets really nice. On a dusty court, I had to wipe a fair amount.

The new React cushioning has no reaction while you’re on-court. No bounce. No feedback.

The Suede/Nubuck upper of my colorway is a little stiff at first but feels very premium later on.

No heel slippage or movement in the footbed. I also liked the Achilles pillows that add to the comfort in the heel area of this shoe.

Strong materials are very supportive and you get a little ankle support from the mid cut.

Works very well for narrow feet, but if you have wide feet, this shoe is probably not for you.

The rubber is pretty hard, so outdoor use should be okay!
