Summary of 3 Expert Reviews:

The Kyrie S1 is a limited edition and a nice concoction of the Kyrie 1,2 and 3. The traction and cushion are taken from the Kyrie 1 and the upper is a wild mix of the 1(heel counter), 2 (ankle-strap and ankle area) and 3 (toe-box). Overall, the Kyrie S1 performs well on court but is probably not worth the premium price it takes to get these from resellers.

The Kyrie S1 perform pretty similar to the Kyrie 1 but feels a little bit bulkier.

The modified Herringbone taken from the Kyrie 1 performed very well.

The traction wasn’t deal breaker bad, but it definitely made me appreciate what I experienced in the Kyrie 2, 3, and 4.

Cushion of the Nike Kyrie S1:

8.0
The Sole Brothers
The cushioning is pretty stiff, responsive and offers great court feel. Little impact protection though.

Zoom bag in the fore-foot is one of the great things about this shoe.

While the cushion isn’t mind blowing or spectacular, it’s good enough.

Materials are okay, they become pretty soft after breaking them in and perform well.

Pretty basic materials that take a long time to break in. I am not a fan of the suede strap.
