We love Kyrie Irving‘s game. On the court, there’s no one more exciting. Kevin Durant scores a lot. LeBron James wins a lot. And Anthony Davis wows a lot. But Irving is a 24/7 highlight reel, between his ball-handling moves and his one-on-one ability. From his unique spin shots around the rim that always seems to go in to his already classic matchups against fellow top point guards like Russell Westbrook and John Wall, Irving is not just an All-Star but someone capable of entertaining and leading the next generation in the NBA.
This year, Irving is posting right around 21 points a night for the Cleveland Cavaliers, an East favorite despite a slow start. Everyone in that lineup has had a few rough patches but trust that they’ll turn it around eventually. In the meantime, Nike and Kyrie broke a barrier by launching his new signature sneaker, the Nike Kyrie 1, complete with a new logo, transcendent technology, and cool design aspects.
“As a kid, imagining that I’d be in the Nike family with my own shoe was something that seemed almost unattainable,” Irving says. “Now that I’ve received the Kyrie 1 I’m honored to represent Nike and its next generation of players.”
As we close in on the release of the “Deceptive Red” Kyrie 1 colorway this Saturday at Champs Sports, we’re starting to realize it’s almost impossible to dislike the sneaker. It’s just dope and perfectly captures Irving’s attitude and history. Here are 5 Things We Love About Kyrie Irving’s New Signature Sneaker.
