Like LeBron James’ Kyrie Irving’s signature shoe will be getting a “USA” colorway this summer.
Like the LeBron Solider 10 “USA”, the Kyrie 2 “USA” from Nike features the red, white and blue. The Kyrie, though, is a white shoe - the LeBron is navy - and the blue and red serve as accents. Specifically, the strap is blue as is the ‘K’ logo on the bottom of the shoe, the swoosh is red, Irving’s No. 2 is red on both heels and a red rectangle is on the shoe’s tong with Irving’s ‘K’ logo in white.
Via Nike, here are a few photos of the sneaker:
The Kyrie 2 “USA” releases globally on July 2 and in North American on July 18. No specific price has been announced, but will likely by $120 like other Kyrie colorways.
Nike’s release also indicated that Irving will wear these shoes during all of this summer’s international competitions, which basically means the 2016 Summer Olympics. In past years, Nike has had players wear their next signature shoe at big events to promote them (think Nike Hyperdunks debuting at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing) and Kevin Durant will be wearing a “USA” colorway of the KD9 in Rio after debuting the shoe during the NBA playoffs.
But with this Kyrie 2 release, it seems that the Kyrie 3 won’t make its official debut until sometime after the Olympics end in late August.
