Nike Kyrie Low 4 Review

Pros:
Plays fast and low to the ground
Traction is top-notch
Cons:
Cushioning isn't the best.
There's a little bit of heel slippage

Performance of the Nike Kyrie Low 4:

Nike did not include any Zoom air units in the cushion of the Kyrie Low 4 but instead chose to feature Cushlon. Reviewers agreed it felt nice but wasn't up to par with other iterations of the foam setup. The traction is the real star of the show. It performs very well indoors on both dusty and clean courts. Materials on the Kyrie Low 4 feel pretty nice for the shoe being a budget model but reviewers had some concerns about the breathability. Considering the price, the Nike Kyrie Low 4 is a decent option if speed and responsiveness are the main things you look for in a shoe.

The Kyrie Low 4 feels pretty nice despite Nike not including Zoom Air in the cushion. The Cushlon used does feel stiffer than the Cushlon in the Nike Kobe 5 Protro, but it still feels pretty good. The traction is the same as on the Kyrie 7, so it performed incredibly and the fit is consistent with previous Kyrie models. For the price point, it's a pretty decent shoe.

The Nike Kyrie Low 4 is a pretty low to the ground, responsive setup, but doesn't provide much bounce or compression. It plays very fast and the shoe itself is very lightweight thanks to the thin materials. It's still a shoe I really liked playing in despite being a bit disappointed in the cushion.

The traction is amazing, top-tier traction. The pattern and rubber compound are exactly the same as on the Kyrie 7. It bites really hard on indoor courts.

Nike removed the Zoom Air for the Kyrie Low 4 and went with just Cushlon. It does feel nice but isn't quite as good as Nike's other offerings.

The Cushlon used in the Kyrie Low 4 feels different than the Cushlon used in the KD 14 and the Kobe 5 Protro. There isn't as much heel compression and is stiffer than both of the other mentioned pairs.

The material overall both looks and feels nice. However, it's not very breathable.

I really like the materials, but the quality isn't the best. It's a thin textile material that feels very soft and minimal.

The heel cup is of solid construction, but there isn't much heel padding to help with the extra lockdown. I do like how the outrigger protrudes and wraps up on the midsole for added support.

I experienced a little bit of heel slippage since there isn't much padding in the heel area. It wasn't a deal-breaker, but I just didn't quite feel locked down. Lateral containment had zero issues though.

It fits exactly like the Kyrie 7. I went true to size and it fits me very well.

Do not play with these outdoors at all. I ran through the rubber outsole in about 2 days.

It's not a problem, but the lateral side of the shoe can cause some tightness on the pinky toe.

It does run slightly narrow in the toe box.

I would say go true to size. You might want to go up half a size if you've experienced tightness in previous Kyrie's or if you have a wider foot.

I recommend going up half a size unless you're looking for a snug fit. I personally like a snug fit, but I think it might cause some discomfort for people who don't.
