The Kybrid S2 is a hybrid model taking parts of the Kyrie 4, 5, and 6 to try to create the ultimate Kyrie signature sneaker.
The traction is taken from the Kyrie 4, but unfortunately, it's pretty inconsistent on dust and requires consistent wiping.
The cushion setup is also from the Kyrie 4 and provides a responsive and low to the ground cushioning. The Kybrid S2 uses a Zoom Air unit in the heel but reviewers agree that it would have been better positioned in the forefoot.
The materials are a mix from the Kyrie 5 and 6 - they perform well and feel comfortable, but don't offer a lot of ventilation.
The fit is similar to the rest of the Kyrie line and fit true to size. Wide footers should go up half a size.
The support is the high point of the shoe and the combination of the flytrap lacing system and the most recent Kyrie heel counter provide great support.
Overall, this combination of the Kyrie 4, 5, and 6 is not a gimmick but a great performance basketball shoe!
