Nike Basketball has officially unveiled Kyrie Irving’s latest signature shoe, the Kyrie 7 that will launch in November.
The Nike Kyrie 7 is a court-ready model designed with quickness and cutting in mind that comes equipped with several of Nike’s top-performing technologies. The new techs includes data-informed traction pattern for grip during “shifty, unpredictable perimeter play” along with a supportive composite mesh upper. Unlike past Nike Kyrie models, the Kyrie 7 ditches the usual strap and features TPU “fingers” on both sides that go down to the strobel, which were added to offer security and an improved fit.
The shoe also comes equipped with articulated Air Zoom Turbo units in the forefoot for responsiveness and court feel, elements synonymous with Irving such as the names of his mother and daughter, and a chassis that is carried over from the Kyrie 6.
Nike will launch the Kyrie 7 in four “Preheat” colorways insipid by sport, art, film, and music. These styles will release on November 11th in a “mystery box style,” which buyers won’t know which of the four pairs they have unlocked until a pair has been secured and then unboxed.
The “Preheat” styles include “Special FX” that pays homage to Irving’s love for filmmaking. The “Expressions” draws inspiration from the baller’s love for art and the freedom of artistic expression. The third iteration is “Icon of Sport” nodding to Irving’s list of “hoop influencers.” And the final of the collection, “Soundwave” inspired by his love for music and “how the vibrations influence his game.” Each pair will retail for $140 USD.
Following the “Preheat” collection is the Kyrie 7 “Sisterhood” that was created to empower female athletes everywhere. This style releases November 14th for $130 USD.
Next up is the “BK Black” colorway celebrating his Brooklyn home court arriving November 16th for Nike Members and November 23rd elsewhere. The retail price tag is set at $130 USD.
