KYRIE 1

A city in constant motion, New York completed its legendary City Hall Subway Station in 1904. It was one of the world’s first subway systems known for its speed and efficiency traversing the boroughs. The subway station’s beauty turned heads with its unique tile design across strong, structured arches until its closure in 1945.

Kyrie Irving represents a new-age speed with an old-school flair to his game. Don’t blink because he’ll pass his opponents in a flash just like the “ghost” City Hall Subway Station. The City Hall Subway stop remains intact, but flies by in an instant outside the windows of the 6 Train. The KYRIE 1 is built for Irving’s game-changing speed and deception with its 360-degree dynamic traction, Zoom Air and lockdown fit.
