air jordan superfly 2
13\7 - The second installation of Superfly family is again a great performance model, that has all ingredients to last a season and beyond and can be worn by any type of player due to its set up. Non fancy and stable foam midsole, full length outsole and not overbuild upper that also can hold up to players like Blake Griffin.
The SUPERFLY again takes cues from the annual jordan model as it did before. The Superfly had a similar outsole design as well as mdisole sculpting. Although you can not compare them 1:1 you can see similarities in its design approach and performance set up. Better done on the Superfly towards improve performance and market appeal is the insert of herringbone in to the outsole, external heat cut counter as a design element and to visualize added support and hyperfuse upper with breathability cut outs. All points the 2012 was not able to offer.
The SUPERFLY 2 now is not an execption to this approach of delivering a more mass appealing power house. Incorporating the flight plate technologie and highlighting it more on the shoe. Also the dynamic fit inner of the XX8 has turned to the outside to make it visible from the first sight as consumer approch the sneaker wall. A nice twist in using hyperfuse construction again is having the mesh which normally acts as the midlayer on top to give it a unique touch and feel. Not so easy to be done, as the mesh frays on its cutting edge, so this might be laser cut to close the edge. Nice feature also is the shiny painting on the midsole as a design feature which also adds value.
Performance review to come.
