Who should not buy it

If you’re looking for something with exceptional fit and width, the Jordan Heritage is a good option if you like a more subtle use of Jordan branding. If you want something that is more in line with classic Jordan looks, both the Air Jordan 1 Mid and Jordan Lift Off are pretty good affordable options.

The Jordan Fadeaway: A classic hoop look within a casual kick

Through the release of the Jordan Fadeaway, Michael Jordan's most unstoppable move in NBA history is immortalized. Inspired by Michael's legendary action on the court, this iteration is a stealth casual sneaker, gaining more edge over the other basketball sneakers.

The Jordan Fadeaways are fine comfy kicks

Sneaker enthusiasts were delighted with the coziness of this footgear. Some commended its lightness. 

Like most Jordan Lifestyle sneakers, this kick boasts its comfort and durability with a classic basketball footwear style.

The Jordan Fadeaway's upper is pure leather goodness

The upper is made of leather with a suede overlay that runs from the toe box until the heel. The materials used in the sneaker were praised by reviewers, who loved the fact that they are not burdensome to clean.

The Jordan Fadeaway's multisurface outsole grip

This pair is resting on top of a rubber sole that has reliable multi-surface traction.

The Jordan Fadeaway's supportive mid-cut design makes it versatile

It has a mid-cut profile and half-length inner bootie that deliver a superb snug fit and ample ankle support. Some claim that it provides a great hug on the ankle while most wearers like the multipurpose look of this sneaker. 

The Jordan Fadeaway: Topnotch quality at an affordable cost

The Jordan Fadeaway retails at $100, making it part of the significantly more affordable segment of Jordan sneakers which have an average price of $140. The sneaker exceeded people's expectations of value especially with the use of premium materials to make the sneaker, leading to them thinking that they got a good deal with its budget-friendly price. One of them commented that for Jordans at their price, "they are amazing shoes", while another said that they are "better than I thought they'd be." 

The Jordan Fadeaway: Bigger might be better

This kick flaunts its minimalist branding found on the heel, tongue, and medial side. A few reviewers found this lacking, however, wanting to see more that would associate the sneaker with its iconic brand.

Wearers also found that its fit was too narrow for their feet, finding it tight at the sides. Besides this, the shoe itself was found to be sized too small by several of those who got a pair, some of whom encouraged others to size up.
