His ball control and court awareness is a marveling accomplishment; Nike Basketball crafted the Kyrie 3 to heighten those attributes while also incorporates subtleties unique to Irving’s off-court sensibilities.
Equipped with supreme lockdown to coincide with Irving’s low center of gravity, the Nike Kyrie 3 also denotes traction pods critical for the utmost responsiveness. Irving’s third signature silhouette will debut in this “Black Ice” colorway, a shift from the traditional opening Kyrie shoe in “Inferno”.
Personal touches include Irving’s own motto “JBY” for Just Be You, along with “H+H” which abbreviates hungry and humble. The shoe also references Irving’s late mother Elizabeth with Roman numerals VIII and XIII at the footbed symbolizing tattoo’s on Irving’s left and right wrists.
