Who should NOT buy the One Take 3 from Jordan

Bigger men and players who love and/or need a lot of cushioning underfoot might need to look for an alternative.  We recommend the Nike LeBrons.

Wide-footers may have problems, especially if they don't like a snug fit. Going up half a size may relieve pressure, but it might lead to some excess space in-shoe. If getting another pair is deemed a viable option, we recommend the Lebron 17

The Jordan One Take 3's traction was a pleasant surprise

The decoupled outsole featured two patterns: one-half herringbone, and one-half coral. Some players had doubts, but they are proven wrong. The bite is beastly, especially on cleaner courts.

The ride was truly responsive

Equipped with Phylon and a forefoot Zoom unit, the midsole tooling delivers court feel and some springiness, making it very suitable for quick players.

Impact protection is there, too! It's just not at high levels. 

The One Take 3 was really constructed to be light

At 10.26 oz (291 g), the third Jordan One Take is way beyond the average (which is around 12.5 oz or 354 g). Coupled with the materials that really felt minimal on the feet, this shoe from Jordan could really make wearers quicker.

Support that you can truly rely on

Despite being thin and minimal, the shoe still does a great job of keeping the foot in place. Generally, support and lockdown are better than what players get from the One Take 2.
