    Great that they are keeping the cheaper price point.

    Has potential. Looks like a bootie setup like the kd9, but I prefer the traditional the style like the K1.

    Heel and forefoot zoom for 120$? Nike listens. I can even imagine the final design from that sketch. Just not the materials.
    Hopefully not fuse again. But probably will be.

    Can someone explain to me exactly what Zoom tech even is? I swear I've had a bunch of shoes w/ Zoom iver the years and never noticed an improvement in comfort or performance from other shoes.

    Its a high density cushioning. Very responsive. Unless you are super light you have felt it in shoes like the Jordan 12, Jordan 14, and more consistently the last few flagship Jordans and the entire Lebron and KD line.

    I'm in, although I really prefer if they keep the lower to the ground feel

    ANY cushion improvement will be a huge step in the right direction. The 2's are like playing bare foot.

    Sorry, but where exactly is that sketch from?

    $120 for forefoot and heel zoom, and carbon shank?  Seems...impossible.

    Don't know about you guys, but I never for one second bought the "no zoom or substantial cushioning to maximize court feel" reasoning.  Real eye-roller that one.  Because they have never been able to make a shoe with good court feel and cushioning before.  Riiight.

    I'm just talking about it being overdone.

    The Kyrie is my favourite shoe to play in for a long time

    And the Kyrie 2 has heel zoom only at $120.  Kind of my point, there is no consistency or sound reasoning behind the pricing.  If the 3 does end up having heel/forefoot zoom and carbon fiber at $120, why was the 2 priced at $120?

    KD 9, full length zoom, $150.  Hyperdunk 2008 retro, the version with nothing but thin foam, $150.
    Yeah, that's cool that you like them.  My issue is them trying to sell the notion of sacrificing forefoot cushioning for the sake of court feel.  They have proven they can make shoes that have both.

    The Kyrie line is 2 for 2 so far as sig designs go. The 2 was a great design I feel that was heavily slept on and people will be scrambling to get further on down the line. So many fire colorways as well. Very excited to see the direction they go in with the 3.
