Nike Kyrie Flytrap 4 Review

Pros:
Great support
Responsive cushion
Cons:
Inconsistent traction
Poor impact protection

Performance of the Nike Kyrie Flytrap 4:

Kyrie's budget line has produced some of the best bang for your buck shoes in recent years. How does the 4th edition perform? Unfortunately, the traction isn't great on dusty courts or outdoor courts. And even on very clean courts, the bite isn't as good as you'd want it to be. The cushion setup provides a good court feel and responsiveness but lacks impact protections with a very stiff Phylon midsole. The materials are cheap to the touch, but feel good on foot and get the job done well performance-wise. The fit is the same as in other Kyrie models with a narrow and snug fit. It is suggested to go up half a size for wide footers. The support is the best aspect of the shoe and reviewers had no issues with the support at all. Overall, the Kyrie Flytrap 4 is only recommended to guards looking for cheap shoes with a lot of support and very firm cushioning.

I'd recommend not getting the Kyrie Flytrap 4. I'd suggest the Flytrap 3 instead just because of the traction and cushion.

Personally, I wouldn't play in the Kyrie Flytrap 4 because of the stiff cushion, but if you want a pair of shoes to beat up these aren't bad for $90.

The traction was terrible on a dusty indoor court. They didn't have a good bite even with a lot of wiping or on clean areas of the court.

The modified herringbone traction is pretty good. I didn't have any problems on clean courts, but I did have to consistently wipe on dusty courts.

This cushion setup is okay. It's low to the ground and responsive, but there is not a lot of impact protection. The Zoom unit is kind of bouncy and the only thing going for the cushioning.

This full-length Phylon midsole is pretty stiff but very responsive. If you want a lot of impact protection these aren't for you. The forefoot Zoom unit isn't that pronounced, but it has a subtle bounce. This is a really responsive cushion setup.

The thin, cheap textile upper felt great on foot. It is minimal, supportive, and gets the job done well performance-wise.

The cheap mesh doesn't feel great to the touch, but performance-wise they get the job done.

The support is really good. I've never had any issues with lateral support in any Kyrie shoe and these are the same. Lateral stability is also good even with outsole curvature.

The support is the best aspect of the shoe. I had no heel slippage or side to side movement on the footbed. I had no issues with lateral stability either.

These fit similarly to the other Kyrie Flytrap models and wrap around your foot well. They were easy to put on and you can get good lockdown with the laces.

The traction outdoors was also terrible, but the outsole seemed pretty durable.

I think these would do well outdoors, but durability won't be the best because of the soft rubber.

If you have a wide foot, I'd suggest going up half or a whole size.
