Nike x Kyrie next in line to cover the Chinese festivities this upcoming Spring Xin nian kuai le! Happy New Year!
The Year of the Rat will be the Year of the Sneaker. Coming off the Air Force 1 and Onitsuka Tiger Chinese inspired kicks of the same name, looks like Kyrie wants to join the party. Here’s a first look.
Right away, fans will notice the lightweight Black fabric and a festively decorated adjustable wide strap across the top pull the eye while keeping your foot stable over the footbed. Bouncy Air Zoom Turbo unit in the forefoot and reinforced toe makes this fit both stylish and comforting. Curves on the bottom with rubber traction wraps up the sides giving the wearer more traction control.
Flexible and responsive, Kyrie 6 are meant to handle “fast and quick-cutting” plays; like the kind Kyrie delivers. Pine Green padded collar peaks out around the Black tongue creating a cool color contrast with the vibrant Yellow oval laces.The side panels show a Black embroidered silk dragon clinging protectively to the shimmering Golden Swooshes like precious treasure. Unlike other CNY 2020 models, Kyrie gives dominant focus to the Bahamian Blue “All Seeing Eye” heel and Purple outsole instead of Reds and White
