Jordan Tatum 2 Review

Pros:
Lateral containment is excellent
Air Strobel is comfortable
Cons:
Outsole is a dust magnet
Materials run hot

Performance of the Jordan Tatum 2:

The Jordan Tatum 2 would be a better shoe if it weren't for the traction. The outsole collects dust quickly, which hinders performance. The full-length Air Strobel is a step up in cushioning. It feels balanced but not bouncy. Jordan Brand uses lower-quality materials, but the durability is solid. The shoe is lightweight and comfortable. Heat retention could be better. The upper construction provides extra stability. The lateral containment is excellent, too. Overall, the Jordan Tatum 2 improves on the construction and stability of the previous model, but the unreliable traction on dust is too much of a drawback.

The Jordan Tatum 2 is light and responsive, but the performance on dust is not good. You have to keep the outsole dust-free at all costs.

The Jordan Tatum 2 is an upgrade on the Tatum 1. I like the Air Strobel cushioning; the support and lockdown were also solid. I don't like the materials and the traction is not top-tier.

The Jordan Tatum 2 feels dull. Lateral stability and ground feel are the pros, but the traction attracts a lot of dust and the cushioning feels dead.

I can't recommend the Jordan Tatum 2, mainly because of the poor traction. The cushioning is well-balanced, but the materials are low-quality.

For the first few days, the traction performance was not good. Performance on clean courts improves over time, but dust poses an issue.

There's a lot of ground contact for the traction, but the outsole picks up and holds on to dust faster than any other shoe. I enjoy the profile if you can keep the dust off.

The traction is nothing mind-blowing. It's solid if you make sure to wipe the dust off often.

You won't have issues on clean courts, but the traction performance on any other surface is not good. The outsole is a dust magnet.

The full-length Air Strobel lays on top of EVA foam. The low stack caters more toward shock absorption than bounciness. It feels deadened.

The midfoot is thin. The upper will squish feet with more volume. The fit will be better for people with low-volume feet; it'll be more comfortable.
