The latest Trunner has arrived. The Jordan Trunner Ultimate is a bouncy, zoom-y new addition to the Jordan Brand’s long lasting Trunner line. And as usual, if it’s a Trunner, the WearTesters team will buy it (don’t judge us…we can’t help it). However, with the Ultimate Trunner retailing at $150, this year’s Trunner does require the commitment of quite a few benjamins.
Sporting a engineered knit build, the Trunner Ultimate fits right in line with most of the current running models you’d see on store shelves and last year’s Jordan runner, the Jordan React Havoc. The difference being that there is a Jumpman logo on the shoe — something highbrow runners may gasp at since the logo is of a man holding a basketball rather than a squiggly line, Three Stripes or a Swoosh.
The fit is true to size, but the heel left a bit to be desired. While running there was a noticeable error in the heel design, but it didn’t kill the entire experience. A runners loop would have been nice to use here, but the laces are very short so there wasn’t enough slack to try it out.
The real MVP here is the cushioning as Zoom Air is used in full length fashion. There is an additional Zoom Air unit placed at the forefoot for a double stacked ride up front. Bouncy is an understatement when describing how they feel. With the Trunner Ultimate boasting some of the bounciest Zoom Air in the business, the foam carrier is no slouch. There is no confirmed tech information on what type of foam is used, but our guess would be Injected Phylon or Cushlon. Either way, this is one very well cushioned ride.
It seems most of our audience would like a performance review so stay tuned for that. Chris has been running in the Jordan Trunner Ultimate everyday since they arrived — which may be a sign that he likes them.
