Nike Air Force 1 Jester XX Review
We all get excited when Nikey announces a new addition to their never-ending collection. The first Nike Air Force 1 was introduced in 1982. Since then Nike has been known as the brand that changed basketball game forever. It was the first basketball sneaker that featured Nike Air Technology and decades later continues to be a fashion staple amongst Nike fans. Today, thanks to the Reimagined collection, this classic silhouette received not one, but 10 facelifts, adding 10 new reimagined styles to the collection including the Air Jordan 1 sneakers. It was women designers that created the 1 Reimagined selection.
Similar to the Nike Air Force 1, the Nike Air Force 1 Jester XX took the spotlight of attention. Featuring a sturdy midsole, chunky rubber sole, flexible cushioning and classic sporty design, this model quickly became fan favorite from Nike’s “1 Reimagined” collection. Thanks to the brand’s creative innovations, Nike Air 1 Jester XX continuously surprises with color updates. It comes available in a low-top and high-top styles with exciting color schemes. This sneaker icon sports a soft, premium leather upper with stitching throughout the entire design. Obviously, with the Reimagined collection, Nike tried to capture that futuristic chic look with a minimalist design. Many say they succeeded. We are about to find out.

There are many parts of the Jester XX model that work perfectly together to create a comfortable environment for your feet. Due to the midsole, which has Nike’s Air technology incorporated into it, the Jester XX feels light and shouldn’t slow you down or weigh you down. The whole idea of Nike’s Air technology is for the compressed air cushioning to provide a ride that won’t tire your feet, even after extended wear. In addition, the upper is made of leather that has perforations throughout the whole design, allowing for ample airflow inside the shoe. The soft and plush lining is in charge to provide comfort from the inside, while the lightly padded tongue, collar, and heel area add to the overall comfort.
The comfort of the sneaker is highly appreciated thanks to the well-cushioned Air technology midsole and breathable upper. One of the most loved features is the Air unit encapsulated on the midsole, as it is an excellent shock absorbing cushioning system. This version received an outsole with cut-outs to reduce weight, which made this shoe light and easy for everyday use. What customers also loved was the new platform that gave them the right height without it being very noticeable.
Another great feature is the model’s durability since the Jester XX is made of high-quality materials, so both the upper and the outsole should last long, and the midsole cushioning should retain its shape even after extended wear. The drawback with this model is the inconsistency in sizing, as some reported the model to run big, others claimed it runs small. The toe area may be a little bit snug, and even though many loved the bulky look, some said it looked unflattering against their slender legs. Overall, this design received more positive comments than negative feedback, so it’s safe to say that it makes a good investment and a great addition to your wardrobe.
