Summary of 3 Expert Reviews:

The Ultra Fly 2 is a great performer at a decent price. The traction is solid, and thanks to the hard rubber, it works very well outdoors too. Getting forefoot and heel Zoom units at the affordable retail price of only $125 is a great deal. The only downside of this shoe is that the one-piece-bootie upper construction is very hard to get on at first. Overall, this is a very affordable shoe that's perfect for players with narrow feet who like to ball outdoors.

This is the first Jordan Brand performance model I’ve bought in a long time that doesn’t make me feel like I was ripped off.

For $125 this is a great performer. I don't feel like the Ultra Fly series gets enough respect. Heel and forefoot Zoom, mesh upper, nice traction - I can't ask for much more.
