Duke Nike Kyrie 3 Profile

The tradition of Nike Kyrie sneakers in Duke Blue Devils colors will continue this year with the pair pictured here. The shoe takes its design beyond just donning blue, and reads "Duke" in jumbo varsity letters across the heels of the left and right shoes.

"My time at Duke taught me discipline and cohesion of a championship-level program," said Irving of the shoes. "I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything, it was a great road for me to take before landing in Cleveland."

The Nike Kyrie 3 "Duke" will release on March 10. Before that, the Duke men's team will debut the sneakers on Tuesday, Feb. 28, during their game against Florida State.

The shoe is very much reminiscent of last year's Duke Kyrie 2, which featured a similar lettering treatment.
