Nike Air Max Dominate EP Performance Review

Hi, guys, today I want to share the performance review of Nike Air Max Dominate EP with you.

  1. Cushion Performance: 7 scores

Nike Air Max Dominate EP only has a big Max air cushion on the rear sole. I make some exercise to make the Max air cushion soft, then I start to play basketball. The foam of forefoot sole is stiff. It’s not enough for heavy weight players. So I try to jump to ground with whole foot to share some shocks to the air cushion of rear sole. The semi-transparent of rear insole is easy to yellowing. After breaking-in, the air cushion of rear sole is very elastic, it can offer some effect, but the cushion performance of whole insole is not good enough, so I will only give 7 scores to it.

  1. Fit: 9 scores

It uses full-length inner sleeve. I can feel that the vamp fit my foot very well. My foot is a little wide. The shoe tongue is not thick, after fastening the shoelaces, the vamp will fit the foot very well.

  1. Support & Protection: 7 scores

The vamp uses big area of mesh fabric. It’s soft. I’m glad to see that it has the counter to support on the shoe heel and the stiff is good. I’m not sure for the material of shoe heel and upper, but the stiff is better than mesh fabric which can offer good protection to ankle. As the position of toes are made of mesh fabric, so the support should be not good enough to do big stopping and turning movements.

  1. Anti-torsion Performance: 10 scores

The outward of forefoot insole extrudes a lot. The anti-torsion performance is excellent. I give 10 scores to anti-torsion performance.

  1. Durability: 9 scores

The sole is XDR. The durability is good. I have worn Nike Air Max Dominate EP to play basketball in indoor wood floor court for several times. And the durability of foam is also durable. I haven’t found obvious fold on the forefoot insole.


Of course, my performance review of Nike Air Max Dominate EP is not for all kinds of players. The location of Nike Air Max Dominate EP is centre forward shoes. I think that the actual performance is worthy for its price. For the size, I think the size is half size smaller than normal size. The vamp is also thin, so I suggest to buy half size bigger.
