We already knew what was inside the Air Jordan 33, but FastPass.cn has deconstructed a pair for your viewing pleasure.
The overall performance received from the Air Jordan 33 was solid: each category held its own but the drawback was the laceless component that may not fit everyone’s foot shape comfortably.
Easily my favorite image of these deconstructions is the simple split down the middle view that never really gets old. You can easily see what its used within each section of the shoe and how it functions.
It looks as if FastPass left the Pebax moderator plate intact for this deconstruction so you can see exactly how its implemented. Again, we’ve seen all of this before with the official unveil of the Air Jordan 33, but it’s still cool to see it again.
Zoom Air for days. While the midsole requires some breaking in, the shoe itself is extremely well cushioned. Once broken in, you can see exactly what your feet are in for, which equals lots of bouncy Zoom Air.
While I didn’t love the FastFit system, I loved the concept and implementation. The removal of the leather panel shows that all that’s keeping your foot in place is the parachute cable, nylon cables and the overlay panels. It’s very much a stripped-down design providing the wearer with only what the foot need and not much else. That is until you get inside the shoe, of course.
There’s 14mm of Zoom Air in the heel. I know there were some complaining about the size of the Zoom unit in the heel, but realistically, this was a massive unit.
The forefoot measures at 11mm, just a little thinner than the rear unit.
Even with all that cushion, you’re still only 16mm off the floor at the forefoot. While you may not feel the court under-foot, you’re still sitting low enough to have that low profile ride most guards prefer.
Ending things off is the heel thickness at 23mm. That’s roughly a 7mm drop from heel to toe. You don’t notice it while playing, which is surprising.
