PROS:

  • Very good traction
  • Great materials

CONS:

  • Stiff cushioning

Summary of 5 Expert Reviews:

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!

A supportive low-top, with great traction and good cushioning - it's all I ever wanted!

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.

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!

Very, very good bite! You will stop on a dime on clean courts. On dusty courts, you will need to wipe frequently

Cushion of the Nike Kyrie Low 2:

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 cushioning was probably the least favorite part of the Kyrie Low 2.

PureKicks
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.

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.

The materials are flexible but supportive, and durable enough for outdoor use. Ventilation is a problem though.

The textile upper material is surprisingly premium, conforms nicely to your feet and provides good lockdown.

Support of the Nike Kyrie Low 2:

9.0
NightWing2303 [weartesters.com]
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.

Heel counter, mid-foot plate, and a pretty wide base - no support problems at all!
