First thought to be dubbed the Kyrie 4 Low, the shoe will be known simply as the Kyrie Low. It debuts tomorrow, June 29, in a Quickstrike “Uncle Drew” colorway.
More than just an aesthetic overhaul, the Kyrie Low emphasizes comfort with retooled cushioning. Rather than the top-loaded heel Zoom Air seen on the Kyrie 4, the Kyrie Low switches things up with a bottom-loaded setup to provide a softer underfoot feel.
Zoom Air has been added to the forefoot, too, giving the model added responsiveness from heel to toe. Also of note is the new outsole, which takes a page from the Kobe 10's traction pattern.
“Kyrie wanted his Low to have everything his signature game shoes have had, but retooled with an all-day play component,” designer Benjamin Nethongkome said in a press release.
The “Uncle Drew” Kyrie 4 QS drops Friday, June 29 for $115 with more colorways releasing throughout the summer.
