Nike Kyrie Flytrap 2 Review

Pros:
Very affordable
Awesome traction
Cons:
Cushioning is super hard

Performance of the Nike Kyrie Flytrap 2:

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.

The support is really nice, and the materials feel pretty good. After wearing the shoe for about 6 months or so the sole of my shoe is pretty destroyed, but it is still easy to play in and really just a good shoe to play in; Inside and outside. It is one of the first basketball shoes I've bought. so I'm pretty new to them.

The traction and support were amazing. I also like how responsive the cushion is. For Guards like me, this is a great option.

It didn’t matter which court I was on, the traction just worked.

The cushioning setup is a no-go if you are looking for impact protection.

If you’re looking for something plush or bouncy then stay away. Far away.

At only $80, the textile materials are pretty awesome.

The textiles have been durable, supportive, lightweight and require little to no break-in time.

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.

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

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