Jordan Super.Fly 2017 Deconstructed Report

The Jordan Super.Fly 2017 featuring Nike React is the ultimate tool was released in this summer .

“Every basketball player relies on footwork. Our shoes need to be effective for all moves on the court,” says Jordan VP of Design, David Creech, So the design of Jordan Super.Fly 2017 is meet the versatile basketball player and their requirement of balanced footwork .

Today we are Dismantling the sneakers .




First of all, as a pair of 44.5 yard shoes, the weight of 412g is relatively light, so the design may be just to alleviate the burden of flying. According to the shoe released’s picture is not difficult to see that the SF2017 version and the first color is not red by the same two kinds of shoe uppers, specifically what is the difference, may have to wait until the first listing in order to contrast color.

Fly2017 versions that offer nubuck forefoot overlays.and the inner layer boots are equipped with flying wire and wrapped by outer boots. The first step of disassembly is to cut the outermost vamp with art knife.The rear sections of those shoes are a compression-like neoprene material that suck your feet into the shoe and it feels great.I like this model which I played in used patent leather, it is a bit more stiff and supportive

Cutting the boots,we can see the details clearly .The vamp embedded with flykyrie  enhance and support wrapping .With the Super.Fly 2017, we continue one of the core tenants of Jordan design: A smooth toe piece. Additionally, the script on the medial ankle reminds of our legacy in Flight,” notes Creech. Toe heel is composed of viscose reinforcement, sponge fillers and TPU assembly.


Subsequent dismantling process is still using the knife to cut , we can see more details 

The  sponge is great .

A smooth toe piece which unitized the bounce material  .that  is the best reason that I loved .It did its job well.i can feel great when I player longer .Comfort and response are also key characteristics .that s it is .


Heel TPU which plastic sheet material , and it is look relatively thin.

However, I do love how the cushion was implemented full-length because it makes me feel great ,Whether it’s a spin move, crossover or jump stop.A shank plate between the Nike React foam and the outsole adds rigidity and manages torque.

In order to see its true face, the use of hand saws will do the demolitions in the bottom of the vertical cut in half.

Red painted black should be part of the React,the black parts  is  Phylon material, rubber outsole is red and white color parts.  The midsole is embedded with a small piece of TPU (black part on the picture) to increase the torsional resistance of the shoe.

React uses a thin thick full-length ,compare with the HD14,the entire React region will be stiff then  Lunar .However ,the 17 rebound effect in general. In fact,The Jordan Super.Fly 2017 ‘s feedback is generally not enough to provide adequate resilience  which to help start and jump force , but because it is larger than the material density is greater than Lunar, life may be extended.

Overall , The Jordan Super.Fly 2017 is so close to being perfect.Comfort and response are also key characteristics of the form-fitting, one-piece upper. Allowing for a natural fit, regardless of lace tightness, this method of construction supports multiple athlete preferences and harnesses explosiveness.
