One of the last shoes Jayson Tatum rocked during his initial Nike deal was the Nike Kyrie 5.
The shoe adopts many of the design elements from past Kyrie models. This inclues the tread riding up the sides of the midsole, with the deep grooves assisting for superior traction. The newer features show a gradual evolution from previous shoes, with the new Zoom Air cushioning and FlyTrap upper being standouts. This time around the Zoom unit is placed in the forefoot instead of the heel. The newly dubbed “Air Zoom Turbo” unit is large enough to wrap across the sides of the forefoot and is curved to provide responsiveness in all directions.
Jayson Tatum wore multiple colorways in 2019 including the Taco PE and Chinese New Year’s edition.
You can find the Nike Kyrie 5 at StockX, Flight Club, Stadium Goods, and DicksSportingGoods.com.
