From the heel to the toe, even wrapped on the sides and around. It doesn't matter which step you take, the traction on the Kyrie 6 is ubiquitous and should stay in contact with the ground anyway. Nike's Zoom Turbo has enough bouncing power while staying low to the ground. The combination of the slightly softer midsole and the thinning of the Zoom Turbo really makes the cushioning effect of the forefoot more dazzling. Forefoot material is basic textile. The texture is better and it feels more like a signature model from the 90s, rather than something modernly released. The traction of the Kyrie's iconic series is always great, and the Kyrie 6 is the same because you get amazing stopping power in all directions.
