Remember this post? We were right, these were the 5th signature Nike Kyrie model.
The new model was designed by Ben Nethongkome and features 3 new things. First there’s a new type of ZOOM Air that is strategically segmented and goes a little around the foot. This new style of ZOOM Air is called ZOOM Air Turbo. Second new thing is the lacing system that’s a separate element. This element is attached to the upper by the flywire cables and when you tighten the laces the flywire also tightens. This lacing system was inspired by the Venus Flytrap. The third thing that Nike points out as new is the traction pattern that’s on the bottom of the shoe that draws inspiration straight from Kyrie Irving himself.
