We were put through a basketball-focused Jordan Breakfast Club training session with Jordan master trainers Alvin and David. This allowed us to test the performance of the shoe in game-like simulated movements. From defensive shuffles to dynamic plyometric movements such as pivots to box jumps with a ball, we were able to get a feel of the shoe itself.
Wait on episode 1 for our first impressions of the Jordan XXXII.
Following the workout, we switched up into the Jordan XII "Bordeaux" that dropped the next day. Beautiful shoe and even more so in person, the richness of the colour tones were well executed on the suede upper.
The format we'll be following for our YouTube episodes will begin with a workout to test the performance of the shoe, followed by a group discussion about the shoe itself and sneaker culture as a whole. It was fun to gain insights from the group given that it's such a diverse collection of people - you'll meet them soon. We have guys who've been playing ball since they could walk, guys who like sneakers but don't identify as "sneakerheads", guys who weren't even alive during the Jordan era (most of them - haha) and we were also lucky enough to be able to kick it with sneaker YouTube celebrity Jacques Slade aka Kustoo and sneaker OG Nick Engvall of Complex, Sole Collector, Sneaker History and more.
We then wrapped it up in Custo - they just launched Jordan patches. Visit the Jordan store at 306 Yonge in Toronto to customize your own gear, free with any Jordan store purchase.
