I haven’t bought Air Jordan 33. The appearance is not good looking. Its Fastfit is useless for wide foot or high instep. The air cushion is worse than AJ32. The abrasive resistance of AJ33 is also not good. Anyway, I don’t like AJ33.
But I am one of Ailun Guo’s fans, and I want to purchase the colorway of AJ33 for Ailun Guo. After releasing Air Jordan 33 SE, I found that the appearance of AJ33 SE is quite good looking.
Many fans know that Ailun Guo like mint green. It seems that Ailun Guo is the spokesman of mint green after he joins in Jordan Brand. You may find that Air Jordan has few mint green colorway in recent generations. But from AJ32, AJ33 to AJ33 SE, the white and mint green colorway is named as Ailun Guo.
The upper height of Air Jordan 33 SE is not lower more than 1cm, comparing with Air Jordan 32. People think that it’s low type, as the height of shoe tongue is reduced. The Fastfit of half sole is under the vamp. It’s to avoid that the lacing system will be paralyzed.
The configuration of insole is still Zoom of half sole with Hex Zoom +Flightspeed+Fastfit of heelpiece. It doesn’t have big difference comparing with normal version.
Except the colorway, the most attracting part of Air Jordan 33 SE is the Fastfit. This time, the fastening system is extended to the heelpiece. After pulling though the elastic cord, the heelpiece part will be frapped. It will improve the wrapping performance of heelpiece. And it has two sponges on the inner lining.
After testing it for two weeks, I’m not very satisfied at Air Jordan 33 SE’s performance.
For the cushion of Air Jordan 32 half sole, it feels like there is rubber plate under the outsole. It’s hard to adapt to the ZOOM of half sole in the beginning. It will effect the anti-torsion and stability of the shoes.
But over the time, the cushion of half sole is more and more comfortable. With the FlightSpeed air cushion of half sole make better harmony of cushion. The The air cushion of Air Jordan 33 SE make the foot to be close to the outsole. The feeling of cushion is more obvious. Overall, the cushion of Air Jordan 33 SE is better than Air Jordan 32.
The Fastfit is finally effective
The reason why I haven’t bought Air Jordan 32 is, Fastfit is useless for me. But the Fastfit of Air Jordan 33 SE is linked to heelpiece, so it can fit well with heelpiece.
Although it’s not high type, but it can fit well with the foot.
Better Wrapping Performance
Although it’s still thinnish shoe tree type, but comparing with Air Jordan 33, Air Jordan 33 SE is good enough for the guys who have wide foot. It won’t be too tight. Over time, the shoes will be wider to fit well with the foot after the period of breaking-in.
The cushion of heelpiece falls behind. The heelpiece cushion of Air Jordan 33and Air Jordan 33 SE has been changed to hexagon Hex Zoom. As the material of insole is stiff, and the Zoom area is too small, so the cushion performance of heelpiece is not good.
The traction performance of Air Jordan 33 SE is not excellent. It has good traction performance on plastic cement. But it will be a little slippery on inner wood floor or slippery out-field. Anyway, the traction performance of Air Jordan 33 SE is almost the same as Air Jordan 32.
The abrasive resistance of Air Jordan 33 is also not good.
The supporting performance of vamp is also un-qualified. Comparing with AJ 31 and AJ 32, the vamp material of Air Jordan engineering mesh and lateral leather is not good. You can have a look at the gif.
Although the Air Jordan 33 has the configuration of new technology, but it ignores the actual performance. It’s a pity.
If you don’t have the chance to try Air Jordan 32, comparing with Air Jordan 33, Air Jordan 33 SE will be a better choice. If you are heavy and have high request of insole stability, we suggest you to purchase it. The thick insole and breaking-in cushion will bring high-end experience.
