Nike will be lacing tennis player Nick Kyrgios with a NYC-inspired colorway of the NikeCourt Air Zoom Vapor X Kyrie 5, a hybrid silhouette that combines the upper of the Kyrie 5 with the sole of the NikeCourt Air Zoom Vapor X tennis shoe. The Swoosh features graffiti-inspired details while the toe bumper has torn-poster graphics, both included as a tribute to the city and its basketball culture. The purple and green color blocking of this shoe matches the colors of NikeCourt’s NYC-inspired apparel collection.
The Nike Air Zoom Vapor X Kyrie 5 “NYC” launches globally on August 24 for $160 USD. Expect Kyrgios to rock the special New York-inspired hybrid kicks on-court for the 2019 U.S. Open, taking place from August 26 to September 8. Check out the official photos of the NYC collection below.
