Although Ultra Fly 3 has good cost performance, but the spokesman—Jimmy Bulter doesn’t like it. There are only a few publicities recently.
I also thought this pair of shoes is not bad as imagination, as the appearance is simple & cool and the configuration is also great. But after testing, I found that it has reason why Ultra Fly 3 hasn’t been vigorously promoted.
Configuration of Cushion
I still don’t know what kind of ZOOM type in the insole. I thought the Zoom type should be fanshaped. It has Hex Zoom Air Cushion on forefoot and heelpiece part. So it has good cost performance. You know, PG3 don’t even have Zoom Air Cushion on heelpiece part.
The cushion of Ultra Fly 3 is already enough. The feeling is not obvious as Hyperdunk X. But we can still feel it. Moreover, the material density of insole is similar to Adidas Bounce, so the cushion performance of Ultra Fly 3 is above average on the same price.
Great Fit & Supporting Performance
The vamp configuration of Ultra Fly 3 is great. The external coating layer is thick enough. The material is also stronger and has tenacity. So it can support and fit well the forefoot.
The extra filling in heelpiece part also guarantee the fit and supporting performance of this sneaker. The padding area of heelpiece is also the extended part from inner sleeve of forefoot, which has stabilization effect.
As it has good vamp performance, moderate cushion performance and satisfactory lengthways traction performance make the sneaker have great performance on lengthways movements. There is almost 90% area of lengthways grains on outsole, you don’t need to worry to be slipped when making lengthways movements.
Although the sneaker surprise us when making straight line movement. But it has hidden danger when making crosswise movements. It’s not stable for crosswise movements.
For anti-torsion performance, Ultra Fly 3 just widen the width of insole. So the anti-torsion performance can’t be assured. It can’t protect well the foot when making lateral movements.
Overall, the overall evaluation of making lengthways movements is excellent. But it has hidden danger for lateral movements and durability. So we suggest the players who prefer to making straight lines movements and breaking through movements. BTW, I am worried about the life time of vamp. It’s not durable. So it needs to consider about the durability before purchasing.
