Performance Review: Nike Air Force Max

I think, there is a reason why even though these were made for Anthony Davis, he doesn't wear them.

After wearing previous kicks such as the Nike Air Max Audacity and Nike Air Max Dominate, the Nike Air Force Max was a shoe specifically made for NBA player Anthony Davis. However, when you see him rocking the Kobe AD Exodus instead of these this season, there must surely be a reason why.

Well, I don't know his reasons to be honest, but in my experience in these kicks, the performance might be a reason why.

The shoe is a quintessential big man shoe, lacking court feel and responsiveness, while focusing too much on support and stability. Additionally, the air max here doesn't feel to great. And for a different kind of bigman like Anthony Davis, these may not keep to job done.

Here is our review:

Anyone else rocked these on court, how was your experience? Sound off in the comments section below.

Performance Review: Peak Rising Flames

If you are looking for a pair of cheap kicks, you may want to check out Zilingo PH. That's the site where I was able to get a pair of the Peak Rising Flames.

At that time, when it was first released the price of these kicks were at 1,560 pesos, but today I think they now retail for 2,140 at 40% off.

Anyway, back to the review these kicks are definitely for bigmen as they are quite heavy, lack court feel and is a little bit restrictive due to the support. The materials are not something to really brag about as they are what they are and over all the kicks serve their purpose, a get the job done, inexpensive pair of kicks.

Here is our review:

These do come in more colorways just incase you are looking to cop. Would you get a pair? Sound off in the comments below.

Performance Review: Fila Spaghetti Low

As a kid growing up on the 90's, sometimes I just can't help but get very nostalgic on some retro kicks that come out, especially the ones I missed out on as a kid with no cash.

While, not a fan of Filas before, I was still well aware of their products and athletes during their heydays in basketball and particularly the NBA. Everyone one was swooning over Grant Hill and his GH line in Fila. However, there were other athletes like Jerry Stackhouse and Jamal Mashburn in the fold as well.

Now, when an opportunity cam and I saw these Fila Spaghetti Lows on sale at Zalora, I didn't think twice in copping a pair and reviewing them for both your and my pleasure.

Catch my review below.

While, it did not have the same performance features as those released in the US and Europe, it still brought a great sense of nostalgia to me and at a low price point I might add. But as far as performance goes, these would be better suited for the gym and as a lifestyle pair of kicks.

Has anyone of you got a pair? Would your consider rocking these? Sound off in the comments section below.

Performance Review: Nike KDXI

I know it is a little late but it took my a while to actually decide on getting the KDXI with all its previous reviews for the weartesters in other countries.

However, when it hit the outlets, it was the time I thought it would be alright to get them and test them out as I was very intrigued by the cushioning system of full length zoom air encased in a react carrier midsole.

While, I understand it is late I hope my review would still help those looking to know more and cop the KDXI.

Here is my review below?

Do you think that this is a good hoping pair of kicks? Or do you agree with the first reviews out there? Shoutout in the comment section below.
