Performance of the Nike Kyrie S1:

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.

Super loud squeak, hard bite, but dust is a problem.

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

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

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

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

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

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

After breaking in the S1 Hybrid I wound up really enjoying how everything felt and played together.

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

This is a very supportive shoe - maybe even too much for my type of game.

The rubber is thick and fairly hard. You should be okay for a while playing outdoors.
