If you ask me why I choose Air Jordan 34 Low，the reason is, I just like it.
Let’ s have a look at the comprehensive assessment of Air Jordan 34.
Suited Court: Indoor and outdoor court, but it’s better not to play basketball on the cement court.
Suited Players: defenders & frontline, the weight between 70kg-100kg
Suited foot type：all kinds of foot type
Advantages: Light, good air permeability, high cost performance, comfortable
Comparing with AJ34, the first change of AJ34 Low is the material of forefoot vamp.
Although it increases the weight, but it’s worthy to make the change.
Comparing the ‘Cicada’s Wings ‘ reticulate pattern material, AJ34 Low uses leather. It improves the fitness.
The stiff TPU on the outboard of AJ34 is changed to leather. It improves the comfort level.
And it still uses reticulate pattern material on the vamp, so the air permeability is still good.
The lateral support of Air Jordan 34 low is the same as AJ34. Although the vamp is thin, but the supporting performance is good.
The second change is the height of shoe upper.
I always love the low type shoe, as it has good flexibility. The padding on both sides of ankle part is thick. It fits the foot very well. Moreover, it’s easy to put on and take off.
The insole configuration of Air Jordan 34 low is the same as Air Jordan 34. It has big ZOOM Air on the forefoot sole, Eclipse Plate on the midsole and hexagon ZOOM Air on the rear sole.
The configuration is the same, so the advantages and disadvantages of AJ34 Low and AJ34 is the same.
The feedback of big ZOOM Air cushion on forefoot sole is obvious. The starting speed is fast.
As the cushion of rear sole is close to the middle part of shoe heel, and Phylon is stiff in the beginning, so the cushion performance of rear sole is not good in the beginning. It needs time to break-in.
The outsole of AJ34 Low still use XDR. The pattern is still herringbone. The traction performance is excellent on clean indoor wood floor court. But if the court has dust, it may slip.
Although it’s made of XDR, but we still don’t suggest you to play basketball on the cement court.
It balances the center of gravity well. It has obvious extension design on the outsole. And the TPU connects the insole, outsole and the vamp. So the stability and anti-rollover performance is excellent.
Fitness: 8.5 scores
Feedback of forefoot sole：9 scores
Cushion performance of rear sole：8 scores
Anti-torsion performance：9 scores
Anti-rollover performance：9 scores
Traction Performance：9 scores
Overall Supporting Performance：9 scores
Overall Stability：9 scores
Overall, AJ34 Low has some improvements comparing AJ34, although it’s not obvious. The shoelaces of AJ34 has the risk to broken. For defenders, if you haven’t purchased AJ34, you can try AJ34 Low.
