The Nike Kyrie 4 is a nice shoe for guards. It is a reliable low to the ground shoe. The traction was pretty good on a clean court, but it slipped a little on dust. The traction was still pretty good tho, so you should be fine. The cushion isn’t too bad, but it’s nothing special either. It is responsive and has amazing court feel. The support was pretty good, and the rounded outsole helped with stability, so that you dont roll your ankle easily. The upper wasn’t the best, but it was pretty good!
