Weartested: Nike SB Cory Kennedy All Court
在过去，没有Facebook, Instagram和 twitter不断地往我们脑子里塞各种各样的滑板片段，每当有新视频发布的时候，我们会热切地等待着视频发布。有时候就为了一部有影响力的视频甚至会等上大半年的时间。视频给我们展示了最新的滑板动作还有最新的鞋子和衣服风格，从而造就了滑板世界的流行趋势，然后，本土的时尚就会在各个城市里和地区发展。基本上，这种产品宣传的感觉，是一种让大家看到自己喜欢的款式或者风格的产品却一直无法得到或者买到，但总能在一些职业滑手脚上看到。如今，几乎不可能对一双鞋采取同样的宣传方式，因为社交媒体不断地在给消费者直接灌输一些新的产品。然而Cory Kennedy的All Court签名款却不是如此，在我们能买到All Court网球鞋之前，Cory已经滑这款滑板鞋两年了， 这双鞋现在已经能很好地去适应滑板市场了，Cory滑着这么一双非常难得的鞋也确实炒作了一番。现在，随着他的第一款Nike签名款的发布，我们都能有机会得到这双期待已久的鞋，所以我们第一时间赶紧测试了这双鞋看看它是否像宣传说的那样。
Back in the days when Facebook, Instagram, and twitter wasn’t around to continuously cram our brains with new skate clips and videos, we would eagerly await for the newest skate videos to release. Sometimes you had to wait half a year till an impactful video was released. The VHS tapes showed the newest tricks as well as the newest shoes and clothing styles, thus creating a new trend and hype in the skateboard world. Next to that, there were homegrown trends developing in cities themselves and in the local scene. Basically, this feeling of hype around a product, trend or style combined with endless days of waiting to fully sensationalize it within your reach has always been around in the skate scene. Nowadays, it is almost impossible to create the same hype about a shoe with social media opening cracks for new stuff to directly hit the feed of consumers on a constant basis. But that’s not the case with the All Court from Cory Kennedy. He skated the shoe’s original model for 2 years before we’ve been given the chance to actually purchase the classic All Court tennis shoe, which now has been adapted to skateboarding. Cory really did create a hype skating in a shoe that was super hard to get. Now with the release of his first Nike pro model, we all have the chance to be able to skate the long-awaited shoe. We tested whether the model can hold up to the hype.
Nike SB All Court CK尺码为正常尺码。
The Nike SB All Court CK fits true to size.
总的来说，Nike SB All Court CK的耐磨性非常好。首先，有橡胶鞋头的滑板鞋耐磨性通常都有很好的保护鞋子，因为最容易受损的区域都被很好得保护。但同时橡胶鞋头也会影响刷板/抓板的性能，不过这一部分会在我们测评的另一部分讲到。 回到脚上来说，All Court CK的大橡胶鞋头成功的保护了缝合接口和麂皮面。此外，麂皮也给我们留下了很好的印象，上乘质量的麂皮甚至可以经得起20小时的滑板测试才会在鞋侧面（ollie区域）磨出洞。但是NIKE标志的位置可以改善一下，如果位置更靠近脚跟的话就更好了，这样就能减少标志的缝纫被刷坏而导致标志脱落。鞋底本身也是非常耐磨的，没有任何光滑面出现，从鞋底图案的深浅来看也没有要磨平的迹象。
Overall, durability of the Nike SB All Court CK is very good. First off, the durability of skateshoes with a rubber protected toe cap is usually excellent, because the most attacked area is perfectly protected. However, rubber toe caps run the risk of sub-par flick/grip performance, but this part is saved for another section of our review. Back to the matter at foot, the big rubber toe cap of the All Court CK successfully protects the seams as well as the suede. In addition, the suede left us a good impression, being made of good quality, which would have taken up to 20 hours of skating to have a hole in the lateral (ollie hole) area appear. The positioning of the swoosh, however, could have been improved. It would be better if it was positioned more towards the heel area which would decrease the probability of the swoosh detaching or falling off once the seams have been ripped. The sole itself showed great durability though. No slick spots appeared, and judging by the deep thread pattern it’s quite unlikely that some would show up anytime soon.
正如预期的那样，灵活性是All Court CK最具特色的优点，鞋子配备了Nike Zoom Air缓冲系统，鞋垫在脚跟区域和跖球区域都有Zoom Air元素。总体而言，这双鞋的缓冲性能稍稍高于平均水平，能够很好地应对中等的冲击。鞋底最厚的部分位于脚跟区域，这能很好地缓冲有力的着陆。鞋底在鞋头区域很薄，这就导致了能有一个很好的控板感，但是就不能吸收更大的冲击了。
As expected, flexibility is the most characteristic strength of the All Court CK. The model is equipped with a Nike Zoom Air cushioning system. The insole has one Zoom Air element in the heel area, as well as one in the ball of the foot area Overall, the cushioning of this model is slightly above average and takes medium abuse quite well. The thickest part of the sole is located in the heel area, which protects well from impactful landings. The sole around the toe cap is very thin which results in a very good boardfeel but doesn’t help much to absorb hard impacts.
如图片所示，Nike SB All Court CK在中足和脚趾区域的切割很宽，在脚跟区域就会慢慢瘦下来。脚趾区域也提供了更多的空间来使鞋子更完美地贴合脚比较宽的滑手。鞋子的形状相对比较平行，截止在脚趾区域的残余部分和一个比较钝的鞋头。刚开始，橡胶鞋头会显得有些笨重，但是在第一阶段的测试后就会显得好了很多。
As shown in the pictures, the Nike SB All Court CK is cut rather wide in the mid foot and toe area but then slims down in the heel area. The toe area offers a lot of space which make the shoes perfect for skaters with wider feet. The shape is rather parallel, ending in a stump toe area and a blunt tip. At first, the rubber toe cap is a bit bulky but after the first session it decreases.
Boardfeel and grip
Boardfeel and grip feel is as good as the classic Blazer. Due to the thinness of the sole, the shoe is very flexible. This flexibility enables the shoe to mold into the concave creating a very direct boardfeel. The grip is balanced pretty well too, not too little and not too much, typical for a vulcanized sole.
当说到舒适性时，脚跟区域的皮革内衬就是鞋子的最佳特点，这种材料为滑板鞋提供了更多的潜力，因为它与最小限度的填充物完美地结合起来去提供一个比较好的跟锁，脚也几乎是被吸在鞋内的。由于是硫化底的缘故，鞋子的重量也仅仅比较平均，不幸的是，它的透气性和重量一样都比较平均。All Court CK几乎没有提供任何地方让热湿气离开鞋子，从而硫化底就会变得很重。鞋子的稳定性也低于平均值，它非常快就会变得很软，从而降低了鞋子的稳定性。
Comfort and stability
The leather lining in the heel area is the best feature of the shoe with regards to comfort. This material offers a lot of potential for skate shoes because it offers the perfect combination of minimum padding with a great heel lock. The foot almost gets sucked to the shoe. The weight of the shoe is only average due to its vulcanized sole. Unfortunately, the breathability and the weight are only average. The All Court CK offers basically no way for hot air and moisture to exit the shoe and the vulcanized sole can get very heavy. The stability of the model is below average. It gets too soft too quickly, which decrease the shoe’s stability.
Nike SB All Court CK无疑是值得等待的一双鞋，与所有的橡胶头鞋相比，它胜在耐磨性。控板感和抓板性也得到了很好的重视，并且在这两方面做的都很优秀。但是稳定性和缓冲效果都没得到重视，只能说较为平均。
The Nike SB All Court CK was definitely worth waiting for. As with all rubber toe cap models, there’s its advantage when it comes to durability. The boardfeel as well as the grip were well focused on and the shoe shines in both these two categories. The stability as well as the cushioning effects weren’t focused on as much and can only be described as average.
