The next era of superstars in the NBA is upon us, and brands recognize that. Young stars throughout the league have been debuting their first signature shoes including John Wall, Damian Lillard, and Steph Curry. With the NBA season kicking off tonight, and all eyes on Cleveland, Nike offered up a preview of the signature shoe scheduled for Kyrie Irving.
A few months back, Nike trademarked a logo for Kyrie, so it was evident there was something in the works. He now joins both Kevin Love, and LeBron James as Cleveland players with signature shoes, and if this is official, Kyrie might have the best looking one. Although it hasnt been confirmed, the mesh upper, lightweight design, and mid-cut silhouette is similar to the HyperRev Kyrie wore last year so we expect Nike used that as a template for his own signature.
These are the very first images so no official release date or name of the shoe has surfaced from Nike just yet. Stay tuned for all the latest on Kyrie's first signature shoe, and let us know what you think of early look.
