One of the many Nike Basketball styles Ja Morant rocked during his rookie season was the Nike Kyrie 4.
This style is known for it’s biting traction, as is the case for most Kyrie sneakers. The tread rides up the lateral midsole, providing a teeth design of sorts. Aside from the aesthetics, this feature helps players like Morant have more balance when performing crossovers. The Kyrie 4 also boasts improved cushioning with the softer Cushion foam used instead of Phylon. Mesh was utilized in the toe section of the upper, while suede or leather is used on the heel sections.
The sneaker was notably worn by Kyrie Irving, Jayson Tatum, Luka Doncic, as well as Zion Williamson in his time at Duke.
