Air Jordan XX9 (29) Performance Review Roundup

Air Jordan XX9 Performance Review Introduction

We’re a little late on this idea but we wanted to put together what we call the Air Jordan XX9 (29) Performance Review roundup for those who are seriously looking to see how the Air Jordan 29 is being rated around the internet in terms of performance. The Air Jordan XX9 is being hyped by Jordan Brand on a performance level since this is the world’s first all-woven upper designed specifically for performance on the court. Other technical additions include Flight Web, Flight Plate, and Nike Zoom Air units. Jordan Brand also did something unique prior to the launch by inviting notable YouTubers to Michael Jordan’s personal court within his Chicago home to test out the shoes. So does the Air Jordan XX9 live up to all those performance enhancements that Jordan Brand has included? Take a look below as we recap published reviews and videos from various performance testers.

Air Jordan XX9 Performance Review Written Articles

Zac Dubasik – Solecollector

“My only real issue with the XX8 was its lack of durability. Multiple pairs failed in multiple areas. Blown-out uppers. Ripped-through outsoles. Every pair I played in sufferd from some issue. Yet I still consider it my favorite shoe I’ve ever played in. Before I can fully co-sign the XX9, I’ll need to spend more time on court, to verify whether or not the shoe can hold up for as long as you’d expect, based on its $225 price.” – Read Full Review


Nightwing2303 – Weartesters

“Overall – I wasn’t sure how they were going to top the XX8… and they technically didn’t. Instead, they took what worked, made it work better then added some new tech on top of that. They took something great and made it even better…” – Read Full Review


jtsittler – The Gym Rat Review

“With a price tag of $225, I was expecting the Jordan XX9 to blow me away. It’s got the lineage of 28 other shoes riding on it, and is the flagship model for the entire brand. So was I impressed? Yes – the Flight Weave upper is one of the best I’ve played in, and the shoe is great from a comfort and support standpoint.” – Read Full Review


Bryan Hinkle – Counterkicks

“So, Jordan does it again, what else is new? We covered that – the upper weave. That really is it. And it is a great feeling technology. I have seen some rips and tears online, but for the month I have had mine, no issues. It truly is a basketball sock – comfortable but supportive when it needs to be.” – Read Full Review
