PROS:

  • Very affordable
  • Awesome traction

CONS:

  • Cushioning is super hard

Summary of 2 Expert Reviews:

At only $80, the Kyrie Flytrap 2 is one of the most affordable basketball shoes on the market, but how does it perform? The traction is top notch and works on all surfaces - even outdoors. The materials are surprisingly good considering the price point and the support is solid for a low-top. The biggest disappointment is the cushioning system which is hard as a rock and only recommended for light and young players without any foot or knee problems. Overall, this is a great shoe if you are looking for an affordable performer with a lot of court feel that you can also use outdoors.

The Nike Kyrie Flytrap 2 is a very solid shoe in most aspects, but cushion could definitely use some improvement.

I really liked playing in these shoes! If just wished the cushioning was a little more comfortable.

This is a prime example of a mobility shoe and not a stability shoe.

Traction works well outdoors and the rubber is hard and should last for a while.

Outdoor should be good because of the hard rubber and deep grooves.
