Summary of 2 Expert Reviews:

Pros:
Very affordable
Cons:
Terrible cushioning

Performance of the Nike Kyrie Flytrap 3:

At a retail price of only $80, the Nike Kyrie Flytrap 3 is a very affordable budget shoe. Does it perform equally well as more expensive shoes? After the break-in period, the traction is pretty good but it can't live up to the grip of the Flytrap 2. The cushioning is almost non-existent: it's super hard with barely any impact protection. The materials feel cheap in-hand but get the job done. The very tight fit and low-to-the-ground cushioning provide a supportive and stable shoe. Overall, the Nike Kyrie Flytrap 3 might be for you if you don't care about cushioning or you are looking for a cheap outdoor shoe.

The cushioning is rock hard and the materials feel cheap. I would only recommend these for outdoor use.

For $80 it's a good performer, but not as good as the Kyrie Flytrap 2.

The rubber took a little to break-in but after that, the traction was solid on clean courts. On dusty courts, you need to wipe frequently to avoid sliding out.

After the break-in period, the traction got pretty good but not as good as in the Flytrap 2.

The Mesh upper is thin and feels really flimsy and cheap. The Flytrap 3 is a budget shoe and it really shows.

The Mesh and synthetic leather upper materials are thin and conform nicely to your feet.

No heel slippage, no side-to-side movement on the footbed, and I never felt unstable on lateral or linear movements.

The lateral containment is very good and the cushioning is super low-to-the-ground which offsets the rounded outsole on lateral cuts.

Pretty narrow. If you are a wide-footer you should probably stay away.
