82 / 100 based on 3 expert reviews

  • 95 / 100 | Tre Good | | Level 1 expert

    I thought the trainer performed rather well. My only downfall would be the sizing. If I could do it again, I am planning to purchase another pair, I would have to purchase a size down.

  • 85 / 100 | Luxury Goods Uncut | Level 1 expert

    This trainer is comfortable, light on feet. White mesh on top which will probably get destroyed after a couple of months, but they look fresh, they look really nice.

  • 65 / 100 | AFD vlogs | Level 1 expert

    They get stained very very easy. You don't get the best grip on these.

  • The Trainer Prime is a men’s training shoe from Jordan. It was designed to meet the needs of those cross-training enthusiasts who incorporate running into their regular workout routine.
  • To accommodate running activities, it utilizes light and springy Lunarlon. It’s claimed to provide more effective cushioning than the EVA foam or the Air unit.
  • The Trainer Prime also features a combination of the Flywire cables and the Dynamic-Fit to ensure support and a snug fit for various types of movement.

The Jordan Trainer Prime comes in men’s sizes only, ranging from US 7.5 to 15. In terms of width, it is only offered in a D – Medium profile. To achieve the right fit, go with your regular training shoe size.

Raised rubber pods are placed in the heel and forefoot sections of the Trainer Prime. They aim to provide ultimate traction and durability while still allowing the foot to flex naturally.

The cushioning is delivered by a soft yet responsive Lunarlon foam. It is a super-lightweight foam that runs the entire length of the shoe, providing athletes with well-distributed cushioning throughout the ride.

A tightly-woven mesh fabric makes up the upper unit of the Jordan Trainer Prime. It wraps the foot for a snug fit. The shoe is reinforced with broad synthetic overlays on the lateral and medial sides. They are meant to give structure to the façade and keep the foot in place during lateral movements.

Precise support is offered by Nike’s Flywire technology. It consists of strategically-placed sturdy cords that function like cables on a suspension bridge. They are integrated with the laces for enhanced lockdown.

Another technology assisting the snug fit of Jordan Trainer Prime is the Dynamic Fit neoprene inner sleeve. It consists of soft material “fingers” that wrap the midfoot and arch from underneath the foot for greater support.
