Jordan Melo M5 Performance Review

Strengths: The ankle and heel could not be in a safer place than the Jordan Melo M5. The inner sock gives the player in extreme amount of security and comfort. Another advantage this sneaker possesses is it lightweight capacity. You will feel very light on your feet when playing in this shoe. With that said, you own quick lateral and vertical movements. One characteristic I noticed when playing in this sneaker is its flexibility. Your foot is able to freely move around in the shoe, yet feel safe at the same time.

Weaknesses: The extreme amount of flexibility can also hinder you as well. When making quick sudden moves, it seems that the shoe doesn’t react with the foot as fast as it should. Sometimes, the sneaker seems to move the opposite direction of the foot when moving too quickly. Also, the arch support is not as strong as it should be in a basketball shoe. Although it possesses a molded heel counter, the shoe seems to be flat at the bottom.
