After a 2 year hiatus from the hardwood, I find myself crawling right back to the game I love. I’m back to playing ball again and After taking a look at my shoes, I figured it was time to look for something new and after taking a look at the Kyrie 2s, I can say I am in love. I have not been this excited to get a strictly on court shoe since the Huarache 2k4.
Nike definitely knocked it out of the park with this one.Straight home run, alley-oop, slam dunk with this shoe. From my perspective, the sports mega-brand has actually been struggling to find new products to push that are actually affordable to the youth with the LeBron XIII costing $200, KD 8 right after at $180, and Kobe XI following at $160. Retailing at a cool $120, these will not break the bank. It’s a clean design with the one mid-foot strap, Nike Zoom technology, and my favorite feature being the traction pattern that extends from the outsole up through parts of the midsole. Also many color options in addition to the NikeID options, it’s a shoe that’s very easy on the eyes. I’ll probably find myself in either the all maroon colorway or ID my own. While it is up for debate and there has been some great kicks in the past 10 years but I’d definitely like to put the Kyrie 2 up there with the best of them at least aesthetically. I will give an update when get a chance to test them out and get a feel for them. Check out some flicks of some of my favorite colorways so far.
