"It's a great multitasker!"

With its neutral style, many buyers love wearing this footwear with any casual attire. Its design is perfect for playing basketball but stylish enough for street fashion. Many users highly recommend this as it seamlessly performs from the court to everyday use.

The width can be tight

While it feels a bit narrow for many, its fit will actually feel better after breaking them in to loosen it up.

All-day comfort is guaranteed!

Like its Jordan siblings, the Aura Max 3 is lined with a well-cushioned insole that feels very comfy even after wearing it for a long time. Wearers did not report any pinch or pain at all.

Breezy upkeep

Thanks to its soft leather upper, this pair is easy to clean. By using a wet cloth, you can quickly remove any visible dirt.

Hip style but not for the summer

Its upper is made with genuine and synthetic leather and textile materials that offer a sleek and streamlined look. The downside is its breathability is compromised, which can be uncomfy for some users suffering from sweaty feet.

What's the update?

Both Jordan Max Aura 2 and 3 display mid-top profiles reminiscent of archived basketball footwear suitable for the modern sneaker fashion. Both kicks are covered with durable synthetic and authentic leather with visible stitching for added vintage style. Also, these sneakers are cushioned by the visible Air-Sole unit that delivers extra underfoot comfort. 

They only have minor differences. The third version has an iconic "23" embossed on its heel midsole.
