4 reasons not to buy

  • The Air Jordan Dub Zero sneakers have a slim cut which may not agree with wide-footed people, several people said.
  • The casual footwear tends to crease easily, a number of responders stated.
  • The lifestyle sneakers feel heavier when compared to other footwear, some users reported.
  • A few individuals complained that the speckles on the midsoles smudged and rubbed off while some of the paint peeled off easily.

Bottom line

The Air Jordan Dub Zeros are comfortable shoes that have the bonus of being cool. The model has a unique design that combines the best components from many shoes in the Air Jordan series. Anyone would expect to see ungainly footwear with such a mishmash of elements, but the sneakers shine with their on-trend appeal.

While the design is a head-turner, the quality is just as outstanding because of the keen attention to detail given to the kicks. The drawback to these shoes is their slim profiles and somewhat heavy weight.

Good to know

The Air Jordan Dub Zero is available for men. A hidden lacing system provides the wearer with an adjustable fit while the mid-top cut and the leather fabric uppers give enhanced support for the ankles.

The Air Jordan Dub Zero is a great summer kick that would be perfect for walking, touring the city, or chilling at the park. Wear them like Ludacris with a long-sleeved button-up shirt and baggy trousers or keep it low-key with a simple tee paired with jeans or joggers.

Aside from the unique design of these hybrid shoes, the Air Jordan Dub Zero is noteworthy for its comfort. This is because of the visible Air-Sole units that can be found on the forefoot and heels of this model. The Air-Sole units provide high impact protection for the user as well as bringing lightweight cushioning that guarantees comfort that lasts for hours.

The Air Jordan Dub Zero sneakers were released in 2005. Rumor had it that the silhouette was at first just an attempt by Jordan to conceal the highly anticipated Air Jordan XX, but leaked photos of the sneaker became so popular among sneakerheads that the brand rushed it to production.

The shoes are actually a combination of seven Air Jordan silhouettes namely, the Air Jordan 4, 6, 11, 12, 13, 15, and 20. The soles come from the 4, the back loops from the 6, the patent leather from the 11, and the tongues’ “T W O 3” from the 12. The shape, meanwhile, takes inspiration from the cut of the 13, the woven leather at the back from the 15, and the laser-etch design on the uppers come from the Air Jordan 20.

During the shoes’ initial run, four colorways in patent leather were dropped. In 2006, the brand released yet another colorway, but this would be the last for the silhouette until its return three years later. Unlike the first drops of the sneaker, the 2009 release featured embroidered logos instead of the etched laser print. The brand dropped four colorways for the silhouette in 2009 before taking them off the market again for several years.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan as well as the 10th anniversary of the laser print, Air Jordan brought back the silhouette in 2015. Laser print was brought back as well, but the patent leather had been replaced with traditional leather.

  • Ludacris was spotted wearing a 2009 release of the Air Jordan Dub Zero in 2010 in an event honoring his work on the Magnum Live Large Project.
