With the best record in the league, Kyrie Irving has led the Boston Celtics to a successful season so far. Currently averaging 23.2 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 5.2 assists, Uncle Drew looks to bring out that Mamba Mentality for a run at the title come May and June. Until then, Nike Basketball will be having their own little run in this marathon of new sigs and sneakers for the industry starting with the Kyrie 4.
The Kyrie 4 is the newest sneaker from Kyrie Irving and Swoosh. It features a similar silhouette as the previous models with a throwback touch from the 1 and 3 mostly. Made months before his decision to ask for a trade from the Cavaliers, the Kyrie 4 looks to have the same minimal setup as its predecessors using Nike Zoom in the heel or forefoot and a aggressive traction pattern for supreme grip.
Kyrie has one of best handles of all time and grip is essential for his style of play. All three sneakers play low to the ground for superb ball control and the power to change directions in a split second. For the euro-steppers and crossover pull-ups, the Kyrie 4 will strap you down with the traditional lacing system set up with a new set of teeth along the edges for extra grip. An oversized Nike Swoosh on the lateral side wants your opponent to know that you stay repping for the brand in Oregon leaving you in its dust.
The Nike Kyrie 4 is expected to drop in time for the Holidays on December 20, 2017 for $120.00 USD in the “Racer Blue” colorway featured below according to Foot Locker release calendar.
