I’ve always liked the Air Jordan X aesthetically but I never would have thought something so simple would work so well on-court… less is truly more in most cases.
The entire fit of the Air Jordan X is top notch. So simple and elegant yet more effective than most of the newer stuff we see today. This lacing system is basic but it’s been proven to work, it keeps the midfoot down and in place while drawing the heel into the rear of the shoe.
Those little bungee bands really add to the already awesome fit. They are what holds everything together so nicely and without them the upper wouldn’t be able to retain its shape the way that it has when on-court.
I have a new found respect for the Air Jordan X. Like I said above, I’ve always liked them visually but when something is functional then you enjoy it even more. The Air Jordan X has quickly become my favorite model to wear on-court… as I get further into the series, it’s becoming harder to choose an all-time favorite.
