After releasing Kyrie FlyTrap series, it gets great feedback in the market. Half a year ago, FlyTrap 2 has been released. Till now, we started to test this pair of Celtics’ colorway Kyrie FlyTrap 2. We’re satisfied at the performance of FlyTrap 2.
FlyTrap 2 series already have several colorway for choice. This pair of Celtics’ colorway with trefoil embellishment. The white and green colorway accord with the impression of Kyrie team. It uses knitted mesh fabric material on the vamp, and hot-melting reinforcement on the part of thumb. The part of heelpiece also have TPU ankle strengthening and has a hollow out design on the bottom to reduce the weight. Meanwhile the fishbone design also increase the sense of speed. It has Kyrie’s personal logo in the middle. And the top of shoe tongue also has Kyrie’s logo.
The swoosh logo on the side of shoe uses the way of sewing. It’s also special.
Flytrap 2 uses hollow-out Zoom Air Cushion on half sole. We guess it’s the same as last generation, a hexagonal small air cushion. It uses Kyrie’s logo cushion on heelpiece part. The outsole design of Flytrap 2 is conventional. It makes it according to the design thought of Kyrie’s signature shoes series. The outside of half sole is fully extended and extended to midsole.
As a pair of cost effective sneaker, the appearance of Flystrap 2 is good looking. The colorway is simple and fresh, the workmanship is exquisite.
The unit weight of size EUR44 Flytrap 2 is about 370g. After fastening the shoelaces, we can feel the exist of elastic cord on half sole. It can improves the wrapping performance. But the outsole is stiff. We can feel the feedback of half sole air cushion.
This pair of Flytrap 2 uses XDR wearable outsole. It has fast responding feedback on wood floor. I haven’t been slipped when speeding up starting, turning and running. The half sole of Flytrap is similar to oval type. It needs time for breaking-in in the beginning. But the traction performance of Flytrap 2 is excellent.
The overall wrapping performance of Flytrap 2 is good. As a pair of low type shoes, the high heelpiece offers the good protection to the ankle. But the holes of shoelaces are too less. The top of shoe tongue is a little too empty.
As a pair of low-end positioning basketball shoes, the anti-torsion performance of Flytrap 2 is normal. Although the insole has the internally installed anti-torsion plate, but the vamp is not thick enough, so the vamp is easy to be stretched or draped. So the protection of vamp is not good.
As Kyrie’s branch, we can’t have high requirements to Flytrap 2. Flytrap 2 rarely don’t have cushion. The thin vamp reduces the weight, and the outsole has great traction. So this pair of Flytrap 2 is very suitable for the players who are breakthrough type.
Comparing with other shoes in the same price level, the Flytrap 2 has many advantages. It has nice appearance, light weight and great traction performance. It’s suitable for light weight young people.
