Kyrie Irving’s love of art is one of the things that keeps him going when he’s not on the court. It’s a good balance to his physical skills. Kyrie has a knack for finding cultural fulfillment and putting what he learns into his shoes, whether it’s getting in touch with his Native American roots or finding a new artist.
This shoe is fashionable enough for a night on the town
This upcoming pair of Nike Kyrie Low 5s comes in an Action Grape and Crimson colorway. The shoe’s heel, exterior overlay, and insoles are all covered in a sort of ethereal mural. It shows the different tools he uses every day, like basketball, music, and fashion, but not just those. There are direct references to the city of Seattle, and the portrait of a woman is accompanied by the phrases “Create Forever” and “Be Epic.”
This pair of Kyrie 5s won’t be what everyone expected after the last two fiery colorways. But it’s the first to try to show different parts of his life outside of basketball. He wants to be taken seriously as a designer, so these Kyrie Lows try to blend high fashion with sneaker culture for an impressive look.
