9 Best Jordan Basketball Shoes in 2022

Michael Jordan was a Nike athlete until he became too much to handle and the name "Jordan" became a brand of its own. Now a separately operated company, the Jordan brand keeps on producing the illustrious Air Jordans year after year. On top of that, the company also produces signature shoes for the likes of Russel Westbrook and Zion Williamson. Of course, there are also non-signature releases and highly celebrated retros.

Given that, there are around a hundred Jordan shoes to choose from at any given time. Picking the most suitable one can really be overwhelming. To ease the burden of buyers like you, we lay bare here the best Jordan basketball shoes that we can find. 

Picking the best Jordan basketball shoes

For each Jordan basketball shoe, we assign a Corescore from 0 to 100 that's basically the weighted average of all the individual ratings that we get from experts, players, and hobbyists from in and out of RunRepeat. 

Besides that quantitative assessment, we also present a concise description that was borne out of the following:

  • Actual tests on the court by several members of our team
  • Assurance that every shoe was bought with our own cash so we're not indebted (and therefore extra kind) to anyone
  • A balance between our views and those of other testers outside of RunRepeat

As expected, the Air Jordan 35 was released to so much anticipation and fanfare, which in all fairness did not go to waste. The Air Jordan XXXV indeed delivered in terms of performance.
