Midsole technologies of Melo M13

The FlightSpeed cushioning system of the Jordan Melo M13 is perhaps the shoe’s crowning technology. It is composed of two of the brand’s most effective breakthroughs: the Zoom Air and the Flight Plate.

The Zoom Air uses tightly stretched tensile fabrics. It cushions impact and delivers high-energy returns. Basically, the fabrics compress upon impact; then, they immediately go back to their original form, producing explosive energy in the process.

The Flight Plate basically enhances the performance of the already effective Zoom Air. What this moderator plate does is evenly distribute the energy produced by the Zoom Air unit. This results in a more balanced out experience of impact absorption and energy explosion.

The outsole of the Jordan Melo M13 is made of rubber that features horizontal grooves. The shoe’s grip is enhanced by adding several raised points all over the outsole.
