Nike Kyrie 4 Performance Review

Posted on

We finally saw Nike Kyrie 4 on  December 20th, 2017 after changing the designer and adjusting the design concept. Benjamin cooperated with Nike which made the Kyrie 4 more lively and  Irving also tried his best to design the shoes. Therefore, we have an opportunity to get one pair of the signature shoes in 2018.

We have told some details by video before. And we will tell you more today. Let’s check it together.

The shape of Nike Kyrie 4 looks a bit like Kyrie 2, but it is said to be Irving’s request. The typical sole has become a tradition of the Kyrie series and the design of middle and high gang is also a bit like Kyrie 2. But what’s the use of the stripe in the shoes ?

Of course, the design and technology setting are served for actual combat. So since we have said many details about the appearance, why not look at other characteristics ?

Advantages

Before writing the review of Kyrie 4, we’ve check much information and we knew that Kyrie 4 has slow shock of the front feet, which got many approvals.

Cushion is really softer than Phylon, but the density of the two is similar, which is not easy to notice. So the improvement of the slow shock isn’t because of materials, but because of the addition of thickness in midsole.

Still excellent grip.

The excellent grip is always a traditional advantage of Kyrie series, which can be shown even in the 4th version. And because of the different grains in the sole, you can feel the powerful grip ability at any time even if in smooth ground.

Meanwhile, players can play freely in the court because of the radian in the sole. And the improvement that can make start-up more fluent is what Irving wants most.

The protection and wrapping are really excellent.

After wearing the shoes, we can obviously feel that the wrapping is excellent. Compared with other versions, Kyrie 4 has totally improved. The wrapping can bring a sense of force and meanwhile, the design of shoe body can protect players from serious injuries. What’s more, the vamp and the stability of shoe heels make players more comfortable.

The additional thickness and TPU of midsole make Kyrie4 more and more excellent, which is one reason that Kyrie 4 is popular in the public.

Disadvantage—The life of the sneakers.

Design defects of shoe heels.

The protection and wrapping of Kyrie 4 are pretty excellent, but the sneakers don’t suit the persons whose heel tendons are bulky. So you may have a sense of discomfort after wearing the shoes at first. But even though it will disappear several days later, some buyers will give up continuing to wear them. So I suggest you wear socks that are longer at first so that you can adapt to the sneaker as soon as possible.

Actually, the sneakers don’t have any serious shortcomings. But the biggest disadvantage is the use of materials. Kyrie 4 used suede unexpectedly which make the shoes damaged easily. The picture below is an experience of a net friend. A t the same time, the embroidery of the shoe upper is also pretty loose. We can easily tear the stitches of the embroidery.

Overall

In short, Kyrie 4 can surely meet most people’s needs. However, the durability and the time to adapt to the shoes will become two big disadvantages of Kyrie 4. But its actual combat performance is pretty excellent which will make it more popular. Most importantly, I am sure Kyrie 4 can continue to dominate the middle of the market.

So if you are into the sneaker, just make it become your owns. I am sure it can’t disappoint you.
