Nike Kyrie 7 Review

Pros:
Very supportive
Lightweight
Cons:
Inconsistent traction

Performance of the Nike Kyrie 7:

The traction works well on clean courts but on dusty courts, you will need to wipe from time to time. Overall, the traction performance is a slight downgrade from the Kyrie 6. The Zoom Turbo unit in the forefoot feels responsive, bouncy, and provides some nice court feel and the cushioning in the heel feels much better than in the Kyrie 5 and 6. The materials are much more minimal than the Kyrie 6 with no forefoot strap and perform really well overall. The support is very good for lateral containment and stability. The Kyrie 7 also provides decent ankle support. Overall the Kyrie 7 is a great overall performer with some upgrades over the Kyrie 6.

You are getting a very solid performer for $130. My only gripe with the shoe was the traction on dust, but overall the Kyrie 7 is a great hoop shoe.

Like previous iterations, the Nike Kyrie 7 is a great performing shoe. Its traction is consistent, the cushion is responsive, and the fit and materials help to provide a good support system.

The Kyrie is a very dependable sneaker. There really isn't much that it truly excels at and there are better options. It is one of the most consistent lines Nike has to offer. Overall, the shoe is going to do what you want and need it to do.

The traction pattern is spread out so it doesn't pick up that much dust. The grip and bite are pretty nice but not as good as in the Kyrie 6.

This traction reminded me of tire tread and it performs well, but not as well as the Kyrie 6. I had no issues on clean courts, but I had to wipe on dusty courts.

The traction has deep grooves and blades, but the bite was not as aggressive as previous iterations of the shoe. It still performs very well in all court conditions.

Basically the same cushion setup as the Kyrie 6. The Zoom Air is more subtle, but it still feels really good.

For the third year in a row, there is a Zoom Turbo in the forefoot. It provides a great court feel and is very responsive, but it does lack impact protection.

Just like previous Kyrie models, the mesh is soft and flexible right out of the box with no break in required. The materials are not the most premium, but they performed well on the court.

I really like how these materials feel on foot. They are very thin and minimal which I love. I also enjoy not having a strap on the forefoot.

The forefoot strap from the Kyrie 6 was replaced by TPU fins which work pretty much the same. The lockdown is excellent and the wide base provides great support.

The Kyrie 7 is no different than previous models when it comes to support. I had no side to side movement on the footbed or lateral instabilities. These definitely had me covered for support.

The moulded fins on both sides of the shoe help to keep you locked in. There's also a wide base on the shoe to help the shoe feel stable.
