Nike Kyrie 4 “Confetti” Performance Review

Now the  Nike Kyrie 4 “Confetti,” the colorful pair was released today .  and the Christmas holiday is coming , a lot of people  would like to buy this one as the gift . and now that Kyrie Irving has said goodbye to his third sneaker, so maybe this one is the last sneakers this year .

I was so luck that got one .

Today we are talking about it .

 

 

For the box ,It is new and nice with the red color.

 

As the confetti from the postgame celebration as a constant reminder of what it took to get to the Finals, and how it felt to fall short of the goal.Kyrie 4 “Confetti” honors Kyrie’s win-or-learn mentality and the memento that reminds him of the incredible experience he can learn from. Irving scores 19 in the second half. A 27-foot straightaway three late in the fourth brings his overall tally to 32, effectively ices the contest and prompts an exuberant, face guard-removing celebration.

 

 

The designer–Nethongkome who was born in Thailand and moved to Miami at age 10, he spends a lot of time watching  Irving and studying , working on a variety of basketball projects, Nethongkome was given the nod to take the helm of Irving’s signature line this time .  Irving has very unique and specific performance demands. So  Nethongkome according the  demands of Irving to design the new sneakers .

 

For the material :Nike Kyrie 4 “Confetti”  used  a mix of the old and new material. Engineered mesh is featured at the forefoot and that provides you with a lightweight material that requires hardly any break-in time. also Nike Kyrie 4 “Confetti” utilized the  Nylon which glued to the underside which restricts all of the air flow, but in turn it strengthens the material.

We have to say this material is great and meet the required of Irving .Meanwhile, the heel panel is a suede material  while not premium material,it  doesn’t feel cheap at all.  for the ventilation , it is also amazing , I can feel the air through the shoes , I meant it will be good for summer  hot day .

 

For the cushioning : the new design of  KYRIE 4, which are based on Irving’s desire to improve underfoot cushioning that solved with the application of Cushlon midsole Zoom Air heel unit. in order to improve the grip , kyrie 4  make the the outsole’s zig-zag flex grove to make the irving quicker on the corner. The cushion come back  that I’ve been waiting on for a very long time. Not only is Cushlon used, but it makes up the entire midsole,the zig-zag flex grove is amazing ,also it  looks  nice . The Kyrie 3 has no cushion aside from the heel Zoom Air unit,so this time , the kyrie 4  bought the cushioning back , it is the best new for us , usually the Cushlon is implemented with a Phylon carrier to the softer, but for Kyrie ,  it is also can provide the response  .

The midsole is actually  thin at the forefoot ,and  the bounce-back that Cushlon usually offers is minimized. I felt the  Bounce,such as the Adidas , this setup proved to be a well balanced offering of cushioning and court feel. I like it very much .the court feeling is amazing .

 

For the supporting : The zig-zag flex grove like the teeth, The teeth wrap up and around the forefoot to stabilize the Cushlon a bit while also slightly caging the forefoot. it is also offer the supporting for  Kyrie 4 , though the supporting just so so , but seems it doesnt matter .

Kyrie 4 has an internal heel counter at the rear. But it isn’t quite as strong as TPU or carbon fiber which can offer the great supporting  , the midsole up front is wide and sits low,so the sculpted also acts as like an outrigger, which is a huge bonus.maybe someone  dont like this design that have not enough supporting

 

  

For the traction : Kyrie 4  is comprised of multi-directional herringbone which aggressive  traditional and  improve  the grip .

this type of rubber worked really well on a variety of courts and conditions. Although the outsoles started off a bit slick the first and I felt it will be brake  up sometime . Effectively decoupling the sole, this feature enhances traction and response from side to side, forming more seamless transitions. Once again, the outsole wraps up and around the foot, this time forming a fanged sidewall that emphasizes that the shoe was built for speed.

 

 

 

Overall , the amazing design of idea , it is look nice colorway ,for the fitting ,it is snug but true to size. Wide footers may want to consider going up 1/2 size.then the  cushioning is also great . dont miss it  ,it is the best gift  for the new year—2018 .
