Summary of 5 Expert Reviews:

Pros:

Very good traction
Great materials

CONS:

Stiff cushioning

Performance of the Nike Kyrie Low 2:

The Kyrie Low 2 offers amazing traction like we are used to from the Kyrie signature line. Cushioning also follows the trend of this signature line and is very stiff and responsive. If you need a lot of impact protection - keep looking. The materials are surprisingly premium for a retail price of only $110 and feel soft, flexible, and supportive. For a low-top, the Kyrie Low 2 offers a lot of support and stability which stems partially from the great fit. Overall, the Kyrie Low 2 is a great performer without any real weaknesses!

For $110, this is an absolute steal. Traction is the most important thing in a basketball shoe for me, and the traction of the Kyrie Low 2 is absolutely money!

For only $110, get them! This is probably the best Kyrie model out there right now. The only thing that should have been better, is the stiff and uncomfortable cushioning.

I'm a little disappointed because I couldn't feel the Zoom unit in the heel. Overall, the cushioning provides great court feel and a slight bounce, but impact protection isn't great.

Probably the best-cushioned Kyrie shoe. The forefoot and heel Zoom units are low-to-the-ground and very responsive but don't provide a huge amount of impact protection.

I really tried to break them in, but I couldn't feel the Zoom units in the heel and forefoot and the Phylon is super stiff.

The heel and forefoot rectangular Zoom Air units feel a little bouncier and softer than the Kyrie Low 1 which is a good thing!

The platform is less-rounded than other Kyries and therefore more stable. The heel counter could be a little stronger, but the good fit and the rubber wrap on the lateral side do a good job to lock you onto the footbed.
