The traction on the Kyrie Low 3 uses the same pattern as the previous model and it works very well. The bite is great on clean courts and pretty good on dust.
Nike also reuses the cushion setup from the Kyrie Low 2 and it is underwhelming. The two Zoom units aren't very bouncy or comfortable but they provide a lot of court feel and responsiveness.
The materials are an upgrade over the Kyrie Low 2 and are better for containment and comfort.
The fit is similar to other Kyrie models - snug and narrow. It is best to try these on before buying.
The support is great and features everything you need to feel locked in.
Overall the Kyrie Low 3 is pretty similar to the last model, but with upgraded materials and design.
The Kyrie Low 3 retails for $110 and I think you get a pretty solid performer for the price. The only issues I had with these were the narrowness because of my slightly wide feet and the lack of impact protection.
The cushioning uses a full-length Phylon midsole and a Zoom unit in the heel and forefoot. The cushion is pretty disappointing because the Zoom units are very muted and don't provide a lot of bounce. This is a responsive setup without much impact protection.
The cushion setup is also the same as the Kyrie Low 2. It's not great, but Kyrie's have never had really good cushion. The heel and forefoot Zoom unit were a little better than the Low 2, but still not great.
I think the materials are an upgrade over the Kyrie Low 2. The upper felt a lot softer and more comfortable which was nice. The strap also looks pretty similar to the Kyrie 6, but still doesn't do much.
