Air Jordan 34 Low Performance Review

Today we want to talk about the performance of Air Jordan 34 Low.

Tester: 168cm, 64kg

Testing Time: 4 basketball games on indoor and outdoor court

Traction: 8/10 scores

The out sole is radial herringbone pattern. The traction performance is excellent. The stability is good when turning and urgent stopping.

Endurance: 7/10 scores
The outsole is XDR rubber, but it’s not deep. It also depends on your playing way.

Cushion Performance: 10/10 scores

It has a big piece of air cushion on the forefoot sole, and the air cushion is also think on the rear sole. With Eclipse Plate which is made of Pebax, the cushion performance of Air Jordan 34 is excellent.
Fitness: 5/10 scores

The shoe tree is wide. My foot is long and thin, so the wide shoe tree is unsuitable to me. My foot is easy to slide. It’s unstable. And the forefoot of AJ34 is made of synthetic leather. So it can’t fit the foot well by fastening the shoelaces. It’s the problem of my foot. You can have a try on the physical store to check if it’s suitable for you or not, and choose the correct size.

Supporting Performance: 3/10 scores
For reducing the weight of shoes, it uses thin material on the side of vamp. So the supporting performance of vamp is not good. We suggest to wear thick sports socks.

Anti-rollover Performance: 5 scores

It thickened the anti-torsion part of ankle. But it’s not thick enough, maybe it’s to reduce the weight. The TPU on rear sole is stiff to reinforce the stability and protect the ankle. But it’s low type and the center of gravity is high, so I haven’t give high scores to it.

Anti-torsion Performance: 10 scores

The Eclipse plate which is made of Pebax can offer great anti-torsion performance. The overall strength is good. It won’t be easy to deform. It’s excellent.

Air Permeability: 9 scores

The material of vamp has good air permeability. The shoe tongue is a little thick, so the instep is a little stuffy.

Weight: 8 scores
It’s said that Air Jordan 34 Low is the lightest Jordan shoes.

Cost Effective: 7 scores

Air Jordan 34 Low has the excellent technology. The present price is acceptable. It’s a good choice if you want to try the newest technology.


The shoe tree of Air Jordan 34 Low is not suitable for most of people, it’s better to have a try on physical store before purchasing on line. Air Jordan 34 Low has excellent air permeability. The radial herringbone can offer excellent traction performance. But the lateral supporting performance of Air Jordan 34 Low is not good enough, it satisfy the anti-rollover performance for reducing the weight. But the stiff TPU plate on the shoe heel reinforce the stability of shoe heel.
