In 2015, Nike’s newest signature basketball athlete Kyrie Irving is ready to take the league by storm, and he’ll be doing it in his new kicks, the Kyrie 1. The second colorway of the Kyrie 1 line is ‘Deceptive Red’ which takes inspiration from Irving’s phenomenal quickness and accelerated first step. The Kyrie 1 features pinpoint responsiveness with Nike Zoom Air cushioning in the forefoot, a dynamic grip with a 360-degree dynamic traction pattern wrapping the shoe’s sidewalls and ultra support and breathability with Hyperfuse construction for lockdown stability.

The number of signature athletes in the NBA will increase by one on Tuesday when Kyrie Irving joins the likes of Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, and Kevin Durant as a member of Nike’s signature shoe lineup. Though he’s laced them up on court already, the Nike Kyrie 1 will officially drop and be available to the public on December 23rd with the release of the “Dream” colorway – exclusively at Foot Locker.
The Kyrie 1 is built around three main areas of Irving’s game that Nike chose to highlight in his first signature shoe. From Nike:
After months of meticulous testing and feedback, the KYRIE 1 was created to deliver three primary benefits:
– Pinpoint responsiveness with Nike Zoom Air cushioning in the forefoot.
– Dynamic grip with a 360-degree dynamic traction pattern wrapping the shoe’s sidewalls.
– Ultra support and breathability with Hyperfuse construction for lockdown stability.
The Kyrie 1 features a unique silhouette with some design features to take not of that we can look out for as the line progresses. The upper of the Kyrie 1 is made predominantly from mesh with the color coming from the pattern underneath it while the midsole and outsole combine for a teeth-like design that we can only hope becomes the iconic look of Iriving’s line. The “KI” logo, which we’ve seen earlier versions of before on Kyrie colorways of old, shines brightly on the shoe’s tongue. The initial “Dream” colorway is officially a Black/Bright Crimson-Anthracite-White one but as you can see from the pictures, the release is a shock of color that fits together quite nicely.

For 30 years, the Nike Air Force 1 has taken shape in multiple iterations, collaborations and customizations, and helped define an entire culture of enthusiasts. Now the pinnacle of street, sport and culture will be badged for professional basketball star Kyrie Irving. The two colorways feature a clear TPU in the vamp and quarter panel to allow for visibility. Reflective paneling is paired with the clear TPU the University Red/Black remains more traditional, mixed with a classic leather upper. Kyrie’s signature and “K” design adorn the upper and his No. 2 is on the insole. In addition, the shoe comes with a custom Nike Elite sock in University Red and Game Royal featuring Irving’s personal mantra — “Hungry & Humble” — a motivational phrase he has stood by since he was a kid.

This Saturday, May 10th, will see the release of two Kyrie Irving player edition colorways of the Nike Zoom HyperRev. The HyperRev, one of Nike’s newest performance basketball shoes, is also the second shoe to get the Kyrie Irving PE treatment after the 2013 Hyperdunk. The two HyperRevs dropping at House of Hoops on Saturday are inspired by Kyrie’s team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, and the country of his birth, Australia. The Australian colorway is very similar to the 2013 Hyperdunk mentioned above. Both releases feature vibrant colors with equally eye catching accents – a perfect translation of Kyrie’s game – a blend of sharpshooting with precision ball handling. Both also feature Kyrie’s branded logo “K” across the front of the Velcro ankle strap.
The two Nike Zoom HyperRev Kyrie Irving PE colorways will be available at select House of Hoops by Foot Locker this Saturday, May 10th for $ 120 each. Check the Launch Locator to find out which stores will have these releases.
