  • 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.

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

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

Your feet are caged nicely, no heel slippage or side-to-side movement at all.

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

Is Outdoor Use recommended?

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

good

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