Nike KD Trey 5 IX Review

Pros:
Lightweight and minimal
Quality materials for a budget model
Cons:
Traction is not top tier

Performance of the Nike KD Trey 5 IX:

The 9th iteration of Kevin Durant's budget model is a solid choice for price-conscious basketball players. The traction performs well on clean courts and outdoors, but has some issues when you are playing on a dusty indoor court. The full-length Renew foam cushioning offers solid impact protection and the forefoot Zoom unit adds a little bounce. Materials are surprisingly nice for a budget model, conform to your feet nicely, and provide enough support for all but the most explosive or heavy athletes. For a budget model, the KD Trey 5 IX is a solid performer. It doesn't compete with more expensive signature models, but it's a good pickup if you are looking for a lightweight and minimal basketball shoe.

For $90 retail this is a solid pickup. The firm cushioning feels like a downgrade to me, everything else is an upgrade from previous KD Trey 5 models.

On clean courts, you get a nice, solid bite. On dustier courts, the traction wasn't as nice. Even wiping a lot I didn't get the performance I wanted.

The traction is really good on clean courts but you'll need to wipe on dusty courts because dust gets stuck in the traction pattern.

The full-length Review cushioning is pretty soft and offers better impact protection than Phylon. The forefoot Zoom unit offers a nice subtle bounce. The cushioning is my favorite part of this shoe.

The full-length Review cushioning feels firmer than previous KD Trey 5 models. The forefoot Zoom unit is barely noticeable.

The textile materials feel soft, supportive, and conform well to your feet. Considering the budget price, the materials are pretty damn nice!

Lateral support and containment were good for me, but if you are a big guy these might not be supportive enough.

The heel counter locked down my feet securely, I didn't experience any side-to-side movement on the footbed, and the wide base offers solid lateral stability.

The padding in the heel is pretty minimal which led to a little bit of heel slippage for me.

The upper hugged my feet really nicely and I didn't have any dead space in the toe box.

The traction was solid on outdoor courts and the rubber held up pretty well.
