The conglomerate over at Nike Basketball just seriously boosted their stock by welcoming Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving into their prestigious club.
A special Facebook stream was posted in his honor for the unveiling of the Kyrie 1, the first signature athlete shoe since the Kevin Durants premiered back in 2008.
As Darren Rovell points out, the Kyrie 1 has a bit of semblance to them, as the bottom of the shoe features his mother’s name and her sunrise and sunset dates.
Watch the special Nike Basketball presentation hosted by Kenny “The Jet” Smith and Anfernee Hardaway and scroll through the gallery below to see all the various colors the sneaker is available in. The Kyrie 1 will be available in stores and Nike iD on December 23. Just in time for you-know what.
