Kyrie Irving is like no other in the NBA, but also off the court. He combines a truly unique game playing style with creativity, social consciousness and spirituality, making him the special individual that he is. Just as special is the Kyrie 7, which is largely designed by "Uncle Drew" himself. Several colorways are inspired by Kyrie's love for fashion, music, art and his cultural roots. The physical shape of the shoe is designed for creative, quick players such as Kyrie. Built for groundbreaking energy return and control, this shoe enables the player to make deadly first dribbles, putting your opponent on the wrong foot.
With a flatter sole compared to previous Kyrie models, the Kyrie 7 brings more stability and balance, making the shoe much more usable for heavier players. The high-cut also suits heavier players, but brings ankle support and foot security for all players, which is also brought by the combination of tight, thin materials and a wrap-around outsole which makes for a snug fit. In order to design the best possible grip-pattern, the Nike team used a computational design processes turn real-time game data into a 360-degree traction pattern, helping players stay in control as they move in and out of cuts. In the sole, the shoe features an Air Zoom Turbo unit for optimized acceleration, responsiveness and overall court feel.
Players who wear the Kyrie 7 are Kyrie Irving, Nikola Vucevic, Collin Sexton, Marcus Morris and more.
