Our Best Shoes Of The Season, And Why You Need Them

With summer right around the corner, comfort is the name of the game. Our two shoes of the season provide that and so much more. The Jordan Ultra.Fly brings home our Buyer’s Pick honors with its performance ratings, unique design, and easily accessible price point. The newest Jordan casual shoe, the Jordan Reveal, has been named our Best Newcomer for its diversity in matching a variety of clothes combinations, as well as its breakthrough breathability.

Jordan Best Newcomer

Buyer's Pick

Buyer’s Pick – Jordan Ultra.Fly

The Jordan Ultra.Fly was specifically designed with hardwood performance in mind. At $124.99, the Ultra.Fly is perfect for the player who prefers a non-intrusive-fitting shoe that doesn’t break the bank (or your ankles). Its unique Black Cat pattern is dense on the lateral side for support, which provides protection from injury, but opens up on the medial side for breathability, making it durable for hard cuts on the perimeter. The multi-mesh upper provides comfort, reduces bulk, and adds support for protection in the paint. The icy rubber outsole looks great, but it doesn’t just score style points — it enhances traction and reduces slip for superior floor grip. The full-length Jordan Zoom cushioning provides a safe landing, so you can grab boards with confidence. Fight foot fatigue with a lightweight IP midsole that provides a plush, cushioned ride. And last but not least, combat sweat with its breathable mesh tongue. It’s the shoe Jimmy ‘Buckets’ Butler trusts, and it comes in multiple colors.
