Air Jordan XXX1 Low Chicago Performance Review

Dating back to the Air Jordan 2010, each year’s model has been one of, the sneaker world  still a hot and fresh ,if not my favorite playing shoe of the season. As usually Jordan Brand justifiably gets bashed for a lot of their retro product, but when it comes to performance they’ve consistently delivered better than any other brand. And that’s what this is supposed to be about, right?

The Air Jordan XXX1 Low ‘Chicago Bulls’ pays tribute to the days when Michael Jordan took center stage at the United Center.Yes ,It comes dressed in a White, University Red, Black and Pure Platinum color combination. Constructed with Flyweave across the uppers done in White while synthetic leather wraps the heel in the same shade. One of the Flywire cables as well as the Jumpman branding is done in Red. Black is then used just above the midsole. Completing the look is a White outsole.

Here we can see the more details .

Firstly ,we can start from here 

A synthetic leather heel and flexible Flyweave forefoot join seamlessly, allowing your foot to move naturally while remaining supported during quick cuts and transitions.



An inner sleeve wraps your foot for a personalized fit.

Flywire cables wrap your midfoot for a locked-in fit

Outsole made of solid, durable rubber

Design elements recall the original Jordans


We can compare with another shoes as below :

The upper : CE low uses Primeknit  material . HD2016 low using the EM material .  AJ31 low  used a combination of Flywave and leather uppers, it can be seen from the appears from  AJ31 low and CE LOW ,they seems a little similarities from the ductility . but all of  these shoes have a common that  comfort .

HD2016 Low:B+

CE Low:A-


For traction : I’m not sure if the rubber compound has changed or not but something is definitely different between the two. Dust does get lodged in the crevasses within the outsole but wipe it away and you’ll be good to go. The best word for me to use to explain my experience with the original AJXXXI would be inconsistent. However, the low top rendition is very consistent.

HD2016 low used the multi regional lines stripe , CE low used the sole design similar to the coral ridge, AJ31 Low used rhombic sole patterns

HD2016 Low:B+

CE Low:B+


Overall – I liked the Air Jordan XXXI but I love the Air Jordan XXXI Low. It’s one of my favorite shoes
