Nike Kyrie Low Review

Pros:
Sticky traction
Affordable price
Cons:
Not a lot of impact protection

Performance of the Nike Kyrie Low:

The first low-cut model of the Kyrie signature series gets good grades from sneaker reviewers. Everybody likes the sticky traction that works surprisingly well on dusty courts. The materials start off cheap and stiff, but get more comfortable after wearing them for a while and provide very good lockdown. The cushioning is very low-to-the-ground and responsive but could use a bit more impact protection. Overall, the Kyrie Low is a great all-around performer at an affordable price. This shoe is perfect for you if you are a quick guard who relies on great traction and doesn't need as much cushioning.

For $110, you will not be disappointed! The Kyrie Low is a good all-around performer and a lot of fun to play in.

The package of traction, court feel, and fit make the Kyrie Low ideal for most guards and any other player not needing a wide shoe or supreme cushioning.

I really enjoyed playing in the Kyrie Low. If you don't need a lot of impact protection then this shoe is a great choice!

Better than the Kyrie 2 and 1, but not as good as the Kyrie 3 or 4.

my first ever kyrie shoe and I've loved it for volleyball. The front-loaded zoom unit allows for explosive jumping and quick movements from side to side. Would recommend these shoes to anyone with narrow feet, and want a durable explosive feeling shoe.

I had no slippage whatsoever! Even if the outsole picks up dust, it still bites the floor very well.

Traction isn't as good as the Kyrie 2,3 or 4 but still decent.

Full-length Phylon midsole with bottom-loaded Zoom Air units in the front and heel. I have nothing to complain about!
 More details
9.0
You can't really feel the forefoot and heel Zoom Air units because of the stiff Phylon midsole. However, you get a lot of court feel and responsiveness which should be great for quick guards like Kyrie.

There is some compression in the heel and adequate impact protection. Other than that, you feel very low-to-the-ground and responsive.

I couldn't really feel the Nike Zoom Air units.

The mesh on the upper feels a lot cheaper than the material used in the regular Kyrie 4. It starts off really stiff but breaks in over time.

The heavily glued, canvas-style fabric took some serious break-in time.

The materials aren't looking great and feel cheap in hand, but they are comfortable and get the job done!
 More details
The materials are basic: Mesh, nylon, and fuse in certain high-wear areas. I experienced some splitting off on the toe box after a few toe-drags.

No lateral movements and heel slippage was fixed by cranking down the laces in the top area.

The low-riding midsole and the lacing system lock you in tightly and provide solid support.

Like always in Kyrie's models, support and lockdown are amazing
 More details
Lockdown is nothing special and the strap doesn't do a ton. But overall, support is decent for a low-cut.

I experienced needles when I cranked the laces in the forefoot too much. As a slight wide-footer, this is not a perfect choice.

The shoe pulls nice and tight around your foot, locking everything from the midfoot forward in and down with no movement at all.

The fit starts off a bit tight but loosens up after the break-in period.

I do like the way they fit. Very similar to the Kyrie 1.
