With the Kyrie 4 being arguably one of the better models out there in the Kyrie line, Nike decided to release a low-top version of the Kyrie 4 with some familiar design cues of the previous models. The first thing that I noticed (aside from the obvious lower cut design) is the midfoot strap which was taken from the Kyrie 2. Straps are one of the common ways to promote good lockdown if done right. While this has yet to be proven in the Kyrie 4 Low, the Kyrie 2 has some good midfoot lockdown so let's just hope it does the same here. The upper is made up of textile mesh which is also up-to-date with the trend. Of course, it lowers the cost and the Kyrie while still maintaining to be a good upper material besides knit. If there aren't too much fuse, then this would't feel too plasticky or kinda outdated. For this specific colorway, underneath is a gum outsole with some pressure-mapping colored design pattern similar to the Kyrie 3 and it looks like forefoot Zoom Air will be implemented for the lowtop version. No official word yet with regards to pricing and word is July will be its release date. What do you think guys? Will you go with the lowtop version or just stick with the mid?
