Kyrie 8 'Man Machine'
ATTACK WITH CONTROL.
The faster Kyrie slows down, the quicker he can speed up or change direction. His ability to control his movement keeps defenders guessing—and him in control. The Kyrie Infinity EP provides a cushioned, custom fit and traction up the sides, allowing players to accelerate and decelerate on demand and take advantage of the separation they create.
Kyrie likes his shoes to feel tight and custom fitted like a boxing glove. Internal bands poke through the upper, and the laces feed through them. Tightening the laces pulls down on the bands to create a super snug, comfortable and connected fit.
An updated 3-layer cushioning system features responsive Air Zoom unit in the forefoot sandwiched between a molded sockliner and foam midsole. Less foam and fewer layers improve court feel and unlock the Air Zoom's energy-returning potential.
Cut with Control
Multidirectional tread is designed around how Kyrie cuts and jabs on the court, providing traction precisely where it's needed. The grippy rubber wraps up the sides, especially on the inside heel and toe, so you stay in control when banking and changing directions.
Translucent, micro-engineered upper material is lightweight and breathable.
Plush, padded collar is partially separated around the heel for snug support around the Achilles tendon.
Extra-durable rubber outsole is designed to play on outdoor courts.
