For our review section this week we’ll have a closer look at the Jordan Point Lane, one of the latest from the brand. First released in September 2021, this sneaker is another hybrid from the Jordan brand that celebrates some of its big hits from the retro line in a modern form. However, unlike the Legacy 312Dub Zero , the 6 Rings or the Stay Loyal this design is very subtle when it comes to its retro roots, same as is the case with the Jumpman 2021. So much so that is the case as it crossed the sneakerheads hemisphere and transcended into the everyday casual buyer spectrum looking for a pair of cool sneakers to wear around. While there’s a bunch of elements from several styles up to AJ 11 many of them are hard to spot.

How They Fit

We got our hands on a pair in black, white and red that hit the shelves in 2022. Out of the box it looks like a very stylish, solid shoe that does not scream too much attention. It fits a bit tight as you try them on so getting a half size bigger than normal would be best, at least that was the case for me. The materials are of high quality so its $140 retail price seems fair given what you get. This is a pair clearly made to last.

The upper of the Jordan Point Lane is made of a combination of leather in the forefront with mesh on the sides. There are some bold perforations in the front that add some additional air flow to the textile parts. The perforations on the side feature 3M detailing. The overall layout is clearly inspired from AJ 7 while the branding details come from AJ 11 on the sides for the Jordan Jumpman and AJ3 for the Nike Air symbols on the heel tab. The tongue mixes some elements from the AJ 5, 6 AND 7. All in all there are a lot of details in the construction of the shoe and the result is quite impressive. 

Sole Unit 

The mix of retro influences continue in the sole unit, with a midsole inspired from the AJ7 made of Phylon foam and a bold Air Max unit identical to the Air Max 200. The sole unit is shaped much like the latter , with the outsole rubber prolonged all the way to the forefront as it becomes thinner. This shape makes this sneaker a more versatile one, being a good choice for the court but also for the gym or casual wear. As we did this review the Jordan Point Lane proved to be a good choice all around, while not so much running given its heavy, somewhat stiff sole. The overall arch support is moderate, good enough to stand up in these all day. The outsole is a bit heavy which is in balance to the partial leather upper construction. It features elements from AJ 5, 6, 11 with an overall pivot layout from the AJ 3.

Bottom Line

To conclude our Jordan Point Lane review, this is a great all around sneaker that can be used casually as well as for athletic activities. It is a style that is cool and subtle and even many non-sneakerheads appreciate it for its smooth sophistication. It is a durable shoe that will last a while, made of prime materials. It is a Jordan hybrid sneaker that we’ll surely see more of in the coming years with new colorways.
