This shoe is comfortable to wear and provides good support for your ankle, but can be a pain to put on. The height of the collar means that it is a pain to get around the bend of the ankle. On the other hand, when on and tied, it feels natural and flows with the foot.
The upper is constructed from layers of materials, leather and fabric, which make a sturdy construction while the different textures make a nice focal point to make the shoes stand out. It also makes it easier to put different colours into the design.
The outsole follows the classic pattern with the turn circles at the back and at the ball of the foot. It gets good traction and the cushioning in the midsole makes this very comfortable to walk in.
The laces are great because they tend not to come undone if tied properly and the designs on the tongue and and heel clip show the makers of this shoe as well as looking fantastic.
Overall, a very comfortable shoe to wear once it is on. The Westbrook range is great for off the court wear as he pilots the flagship Jordan model on the cart and will hopefully continue to do so.
This shoe is comfortable with more movement in the ankle the the high version. This is an aethesthetically pleasing shoe that will turn heads everywhere.
The upper is comprimised of a good looking pattern that helps hold the structure of the shoe together. The laces are tough to pull really tight but the shoe is still comfortable to wear as long as your dont plan on putting it through its passes.
The outsole has an interesting pattern to keep it looking great while allowing plenty of traction. The midsole with the visible air is another interesting focal point. There is plenty of suspension for comfort when moving around.
The heel has a lot of support to push against while also having a flexible top to insert the foot in. There is also a somewhat flexible handle to hold onto when putting on and taking off the shoe.
Overall, this is a great shoe for wearing around and turning heads. There are a lot of features of this shoe to keep fans interested for a long time, as they already have.
This shoe is fantastically comfortable and has plenty of features to secure your foot inside the shoe. The use of the technologies is great with a wider audiance due to the Flyease technology.
Flyease is the latest development due to a message recieved from a young person with physical limitations. He asked for a shoe that was easierr to get on and off and that would be secure. Nike have then opened the sides up more on the shoe and added additional foot straps so that the foot is easier to get into and out of the shoe, while the straps mean you can tighten different parts of the shoe to your perfect level of comfort.
The outline design is similar to the previous model, minus the strapping, but with a small hyperposite like shape up the outside for additional stability. The toe box is pretty fluid allowing for plenty of flexibility but be careful if you like to keep your shoes pristine as the sheen across the front will flake off easily if you catch it on anything.
The laces help lockdown the mid section of the shoe and the straps hold down the rest. The outsole has good traction and helps propel the wearer forward.
Overall, this is a great shoe for all to wear, but is especially relevant to those who may find your typical shoe difficult to wear. Well done to Nike for expanding thier audiance.
This shoe is incredibly comfortable when worn and the only real issue is getting it on. Everything about this is designed so that once the shoe is on, there are no more concerns for your feet.
The insole is a very thick lunalon make which walking easy on the feet with very little feeling of the contact. The bottom is a good thickness to help for that as well.
The collar of the shoe is very tough and can make the shoe tricky to get on. Once the foot is a fair distance into the shoe, it can be used to pull the shoe on. The strap around the top helps secure the foot once it is in as well.
The upper is breathable, but can still overheat in above average conditions. The laces are great at holding both the foot and ankle in the right place for maximum comfort.
Overall, this shoe is all about being stylish in a classic silhouette while being able to wear it for a considerable amount of time without wearing down on comfort. Another update on this could be more flexible materials.
This is a great shoe thanks to all the technologies in it. The attention to detail is fantastic and has led to a shoe that has no obvious flaws
The upper is a breathable mesh that conforms quite well to the foot but unless you tighten the laces properly, it can cause pressure across your toes as it creases inwards.
The heel clip is sturdy and helps the shoe keep it’s shape, but can make the shoe difficult to get on and off. This is because it holds its shape a little too well and won’t bend to allow the foot in.
The Nike Zoom unit and the airbag in the back help to make this a comfortable to move around in. These also seem to help with leaping as it feels like it is pushing you out of the ground to give you extra height. Combined with the outsole, this makes for a great basketball shoe.
The outsole is the crowning jewel of this shoe as it has some of the best traction in the basketball game today. It starts with some Nike Free grooves to allow more motion in the foot. The is a tooth at the front to keep some shape when the Nike Free is in usage. There is also small nodules on the bottom of the shoe to cause traction. The nodules splay out to grip the floor like a race car’s wheels do. This is what leads to the superior traction.
Overall, this is a great shoe for basketball and is superior to most others in almost every way. The only possible flaw is that it is not as aesthetically pleasing to look at as the Kobe 9 Elite, but if they released a high, Flyknit edition, then that is taken care of.
This is a good shoe for fast movers and corner cutters, but can be too tight to be comfortable for some. There is great traction and potential for this line to grow and for Kyrie to reach even higher levels of superstardom.
The aesthetic design overall is very appealing and the heel clip especially is eye catching due to its lifestyle appearance to make it seem more wearable off court. The solid but flexible upper helps the shoe keep it’s shape going around tight corners but can make the shoe difficult to put on and take off.
The outsole is all traction with the exception of a small circle in the middle that has Kyrie’s Nike Initials inside. With the traction rising up the sides and front of the shoe as well, this shoe is ideal for making tight turns without losing grip or any of the push off speed.
The strap that holds the front of the shoe across the toes is very effective, maybe too effective. If you have a wider foot than normal, the strap will most definitely be uncomfortable or even painful. If your foot is average, it may only be uncomfortable, or simply make the shoe difficult to put on.
Overall, this is a good shoe if your foot is of regular size, but if your foot is not, this shoe may become uncomfortable and sometimes painful. However, if you can wear this shoe, it is great for moving around the court to help give you an edge around your opponents.
