Thursday, January 8th, 2015


 
Enhancing a 42-year relationship between brand and athletes, two time NBA All-Star Kyrie Irving followed in the footsteps of Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, LeBron James and, of course, Michael Jordan in becoming the latest signature athlete for Nike.

Working closely with lead designer Leo Chang, who had previous designed the latest iteration of the KD, aimed to develop a signature model that worked in-sync with Irving’s speed and quickness. The brief demanded that the shoe had to be light, bold and responsive with the best traction Nike Basketball could offer.

After months of intensive testing, the Kyrie 1 delivers three primary benefits; pinpoint responsiveness with Nike Zoom Air cushioning in its forefoot, dynamic grip with a 360-degree dynamic traction pattern wrapping the shoe’s sidewall, and the support and breathability of a Hyperfuse construction.

The sneaker is also packed with personalised decals. The tongue logo represents his inner strength and hunger to learn, the jagged pattern on the wrapped traction near the toe and heel counter draws inspiration from the Sydney Opera House in Irving’s homeland of Australia, whilst the acronym “JBY” stands for “Just Be You” – a motto Irving uses to inspire kids around the world.
