The Nike Kyrie 6 ‘Trophies’ from NBA All Star weekend is the next shoe to get a detailed look and review.
If you enjoyed the Nike Kyrie 5 then you may end up loving the upcoming Nike Kyrie 6. It’s one of my personal favorites to play in for 2020 so far.
Tech specs haven’t changed much between the 5 and 6, but what has been changed feels like a change for the better. Softer Injected Phylon is used for the midsole tooling, and from what we were told, it’s the same Injected Phylon that was featured on the Nike PG3. The forefoot is familiar as Nike’s Zoom Turbo makes a return appearance. It feels low to the ground with a slight spring under-foot right from my initial try-on.
Materials are very nice overall as the rear half of the shoe is genuine leather with a patent finish. The forefoot material is a basic textile. It feels like there is some TPU or glue infused with the textile so it’s not too soft, but it won’t require a ton of breaking in either.
At $130, the price did not increase between the Kyrie 5 to the Kyrie 6. Something we’re always a fan of. Materials are nicer and feel more like a 90’s signature model rather than something releasing in modern times.
