The Nike Kyrie 4 Appears on Uncle Drew Set

It wasn’t Kyrie Irving, but Uncle Drew that debuted the Nike Kyrie 4.

With the undoubted success of the Kyrie 3, and whether you liked the performance or not, it sold quickly in most colorways so it was a no-brainer that Nike would design and release a fourth version.

With the surprise move to Boston last month, the name “Kyrie” has never been hotter. A new Uncle Drew movie is filming and an All-Star cast including Shaq, CWebb, Lisa Leslie, Reggie Miller, and Nate Robinson, have filled the roles. Thus, it may have been the perfect time to debut the Nike Kyrie 4.

Seen here on Reggie Miller’s Instagram story (@reggiemillertnt), the Kyrie 4 seems to follow the pattern of the series — sidewall traction for grip while driving, low profile cushioning, and mid-top cut just at the ankle. The lacing system and tongue are almost identical to the Kyrie 3. No word on the cushioning, but the smart bet is Zoom in either the heel or forefoot, but not both (like Kyrie’s PEs).

Stay tuned to WearTesters for more information as it becomes available. Until then, let us know if you played in the Kyrie 3. Did you enjoy them? What would you like to see in the 4?

You can check out a brief synopsis of the Uncle Drew film while you wait for the Kyrie 4.

  1. I never understood why Nike never filled the spot that didn’t have Zoom Air with a regular air sole unit.

  2. Maybe Nike will find a way to integrate REACT cushioning into the forefoot of Kyrie’s kicks. It has to be better than the phylon midsole they have been using for the last two. From all of the reviews on REACT, it seems like a no brainer and why wouldn’t you give a signature athlete like Kyrie a low, “responsive”, cushioning that seems tailor made for his style of play. I mean KD has full length Zoom on lock, Lebron has Hex zoom on lock(for now), PG has forefoot Zoom and soft phylon on lock. Might as well give Kyrie REACT in the forefoot and Zoom in the heel.
