BEHIND THE DESIGN:
KYRIE 4

GROUND-BREAKING DESIGN "Kyrie is all over the court, cutting and turning", Ben says. How to keep him stable was the question that drove the design process. The team tried a new approach—splitting the sole down the middle so the shoe could deliver support at every angle. "Now, Kyrie's able to keep his foot at a 45-degree angle when he cuts and explodes into his next move".

QUICK AROUND THE CORNER For Kyrie, quick movements are a source of power—and ultimately points. With speed in mind, Ben and his team created an outsole that would mimic the way a tyre supports a turning car. "We want him to be quick around the corner", he says. "The new curvature allows him to operate efficiently when he's on a lean". By rounding out the shape of the outsole, his momentum doesn't get stopped short by sharp angles. Instead, that energy is transferred into his next move, and none of the power is wasted.
