Catch the Nike Kyrie 1 on January 10th, 2015 for $110
Irving joins Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and LeBron James on Nike’s current roster of signature basketball athletes.
When designer Leo Chang and team began the design process of the KYRIE 1, the goal was to build a shoe to match Irving’s tremendous speed and quickness. The KYRIE 1 needed to be light, bold and responsive with the best traction Nike Basketball could develop for Irving’s prolific first step.
His first signature shoe, the KYRIE 1, lives up to the performance and storytelling expectations set by previous signature kicks:
- The new Kyrie Irving logo on the shoe’s tongue represents his inner strength and hunger to learn.
- Hand-written details in Irving’s penmanship: #2 on the upper heel along with his personal signature on the inside of the tongue.
- Jagged pattern on the wrapped traction near the toe and heel counter with architectural angles are both inspired by the Sydney Opera House in Irving’s homeland of Australia.
- The acronym “JBY” that sits beneath Irving’s new logo on the outsole stands for “Just Be You,” a motto that Irving hopes inspires kids as they establish their own unique identities.
