    Everything about this shoe is incredible. Incredible. 120 bucks... still pretty cheap. Traction is top tier, cushion is pretty nice. Materials, fit, support—awesome.

    For $120, you're actually getting a really solid performance hoop shoe. Like, this is a team model shoe from Jordan Brand, and I think this is a great performer. Not only that, but, aesthetically, I think it looks very unique, and it actually looks really good in my opinion.

    So the Jordan brand has hit yet another jackpot with these bad boys – super solid team model that brings a lot of performance to the table. The only temporary “it’s great, don’t buy it” statement is there because of the retail price. $120 puts them in the mid-price category, right before the Why Not Zero.2, which you can pick right now for $90, crazy value for the money. And that’s exactly why I can not recommend the Jumpman Diamond Mid for now, while they still going for its full price.
