Nike Kyrie Flytrap 5 Review

Pros:
Traction is nice when on clean courts
Support and lockdown are on point
Cons:
The quality of the materials isn't the best
Not a good shoe for impact protection

Performance of the Nike Kyrie Flytrap 5:

When it comes to this year's iteration of the Flytrap line, the traction performs well and has a good bite on clean courts. Be prepared to wipe semi-regularly to avoid sliding out on dusty courts, though. The cushion does not provide any impact protection, but it does perform well for anyone looking for a low to the ground shoe. The materials used aren't the best, but they don't take away from the performance. Reviewers experienced no issues with the support and lockdown. They felt contained and had no problems with heel slippage either. Overall, the Nike Kyrie Flytrap 5 lends itself well to quick and shifty players that don't rely too much on explosiveness.

The Nike Kyrie Flytrap 5 is a responsive and lightweight shoe. The traction is solid when on clean courts, and the cushion performs well enough for players that play low to the ground.

The Nike Kyrie Flytrap 5 is a solid budget shoe for anyone who likes to play in a firmer and more responsive shoe. Almost all aspects performed adequately, but I wish the cushion and fit were better.

The Kyrie Flytrap 5 gives you about what you can expect from a shoe that is $90. The traction and cushion aren't anything special, but the support holds up well to play in.
 More details
The Nike Kyrie Flytrap 5 is a shoe that I can only recommend to wide-footers who enjoy minimal cushioning. For everybody else, there are a lot of better shoes out there.

Super happy with this shoe. At the 70$ price point there is nothing to complain about. Best shoe I've ever had? No, but for the price I am super pleased.

On a clean court, the bite on the traction is solid. It does get a little bad on dust, though. I experienced some sliding out when it came time to make hard stops.

The pattern on the traction is the exact same as the Flytrap 4. It performs well on clean courts, but dusty courts can cause sliding if you don't wipe.

For the price, the traction is alright. It's nothing special. The grooves don't offer much in terms of bite and stickiness.

When clean, the traction worked well. With dust, the shoe did slide.

The full-length Phylon bottoms out quickly. They also have a small Zoom unit in the forefoot. It's noticeable, but it doesn't provide the most bouncy experience.

The cushion feels just like the previous Flytrap model as well. The Phylon is stiff and doesn't feel nice on foot. You can feel a subtle bounce from the Zoom unit in the forefoot, though.

The shoe has a forefoot Zoom Air unit, but the shoe does not feel soft at all. It does offer decent responsiveness, though.
 More details
The midsole is thin with minimal compression. I found it hard to feel any bounciness, even with the Zoom Air unit in the forefoot.

There were no issues with support and lockdown. The containment is solid as always, and the stability, surprisingly, gave me no issues either.

The shoe grips your foot nicely and makes you feel secure.
 More details
The support suffers because of the issues caused by the fit. There's no outrigger, and the materials do not contain your foot laterally. I even rolled my ankle in these shoes.

I felt a lot of pressure on the lateral portion of the shoe, especially around the midfoot area. The materials don't stretch much, so you'll need to make sure you get the right size.

The shoe is easy to move around in, and it conforms to your foot nicely.
 More details
The fit is the worst aspect of the shoe; there is too much dead space in the forefoot. The extra room creates too many issues with your feet sliding around.
